I found it very cute the way Riordan set up and linked the short stories as a training manual for Demigods.
While I only gave this three stars as an adult, I think if I were a young teen (the demographic that this books is aimed at) I would go crazy over this and have loved it.
In this book we get a story from Luke Castellan's point of view, a first-person Percy Jackson story, a Leo Valdez story and a short story debut from Riordan’s sixteen year old son Haley.
I will add that the short story by Haley Riordan is quite good and I think he’ll be an emerging author to watch.
Rick Riordan has now sold an incredible 55 million copies of his books worldwide
