About the Author

In the first, Luke and Thalia must find a way to escape from a trap set for demigods. Or else they will be dinner. And how did they get into this trap? Lured by a goat. A goat who can dispense ice and Pepsi products! Hilarious!
Percy just wants to spend time with his girlfriend Annabeth. But he is coopted into finding Hermes' lost staff. Stolen by a monster of course. A monster who is intent on making profits off of knock-offs rather than stealing originals. Hilarity ensues.
At the center of the third tale is a table who ran away because he was polished with Windex rather than Lemon Pledge. And now maybe the entire laboratory will explode because the Argo II needs its syncopator. Unless Jason and Piper can help Leo find Buford, the run-away table - who happens to have the syncopator in one of its drawers. Along the way they encounter drunk underage maenads intent on finding Lord Dionysus. More hilarity ensues.
The final tale asks the question, what happened to the demigods who fought on the side of Kronos after the events of The Last Olympian? The story gives good answers about Mist and why monsters can smell heroes. Written by Riordan's son 16yo son, it doesn't contain the same sense of humor or whimsy as the other stories. And while it's not a bad story, it doesn't make one smile like the other stories do. The tale is about an internecine battle between two children of Hecate. Still, it does not draw away from the awesomeness of the other three stories.
"The Diary of Luke Castellan"
Luke is a character we see as a bad seed, but there has to be more to him. In this diary excerpt, we see Luke and Thalia fighting for their lives out in the world against the monsters who hunt them. What they don't expect is to find another kind of demigod who could be their very undoing.
"Percy Jackson and the Staff of Hermes"
The gods can be many thing, but one thing they can be counted on for is to need the demigods to do their dirty work. All Percy wants to do is spend time with Annabeth, his newly anointed girlfriend, but Hermes has another plan for their time, and of course, it involves one bizarre and cantankerous monster!
"Leo Valdez and the Quest for Buford"
As a son of Hephaestus, Leo is an amazing tinkerer. Unfortunately, by failing to properly care for a magical end table, he may have lost the key to stopping certain disaster (Windex is NOT the same as Lemon Pledge!). Luckily, his friend would never let him fail.
"Son of Magic"
Claymore doesn't have time for questions, and certainly not questions that will cause him as much trouble as Alabaster's question. As the leading expert on death, Alabaster hopes Claymore can help him stop the evil woman who is coming after them, but he has no idea how dangerous it is to even know Alabaster.
This was a cute selection of short stories separated by word jumbles and quizzes to test your knowledge of the Greek vs. Roman gods. The short stories were not necessary for understanding the rest of the series', but they are certainly fun for the Olympus buff. The final story, "Son of Magic," is interestingly written by Riordan's son, Haley Riordan. Before the story, in a short note, he explains the Percy Jackson sagas began as bedtime stories to his son, and Haley was given the opportunity to write a story for this book. To be honest, that story has a very different tone from Rick's stories, which you have to be prepared for (it is very dark!), but I was quite impressed. It is a different kind of story, but the idea that the original audience for these stories delivered this contribution at the age of 16 is pretty impressive! Of course, he doesn't have the same abilities of his father, but if he keeps writing like this, he will get there some day!
You get some back story for Luke Castellan.
And some of these story are reference in Hero's of Olympus.
I really liked Haley's Riordan short story Son of Magic.
And full color illustration of some of the Hero's of Olympus.
Note:( The interview with Hermes staff is in Demigod Diaries and not in Demigod files.Sorry)

Luke's diary.... to be honest, I think we were already showed enough about him, Thalia and Annabeth's story from Titan's Curse. Meh.
I LOOOOOOOOOOOVE Percy, but we had his point of view in LT, SOM, TC, BOTL, LO, SON, MOA and HOH. (aka. the whole of the PJO series plus Mark of Athena, Son of Netune and House of Hades. It'd be nice to have a different POV for a change.
Dear old Leo. McShizzle. I hate how the story is set when he, Piper and Jason are at CHB before the Giant War begins. I wish Hazel, Annabeth, Frank, Reyna, Percy, Nico, Will, Thalia, Grover and Calypso could be in it, like the whole gang.
I loved it a anyways!!!!!!!!
Today i will be reviewing heroes of Olympus :The demigod diaries!
Included pics too!.
This book is a good supplementary book for the heroes of Olympus series..The series was a great one and i think that after harry potter the Percy Jackson series and heroes of Olympus series were the best ones! Rick is a great writer!
Love his writings 😍
The short stories are good but you need to read the heroes of Olympus series to understand it
We have one story written by Rick's son who had advised his father to start writing and now he is one of the best modern writers. His son suffered from AHAD and dyslexia and in Rick's stories percy also has the same disease..all over good :)
