Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Which Greek god makes the best parent?

Would you want to be one of Artemis Hunters?

Why do so many monsters go into retail?

Spend a little more time in Percy Jacksons world—a place where the gods bike among us, monsters man snack bars, and each of us has the potential to become a hero.

Find out:

  • Why Dionysus might actually be the best director Camp Half-Blood could have

  • How to recognize a monster when you see one

  • Why even if we arent facing manticores and minotaurs, reading myth can still help us deal with the scary things in our own lives

Plus, consult our glossary of people, places, and things from Greek myth: how Medusa got her snake hair extensions, why Chiron isnt into partying and paintball like the rest of his centaur family, and the whole story on Percys mythical namesake.

Synopsis:

Released just before the March 2013 feature film Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters, this new edition is updated through The Last Olympian, and includes several brand new essays!

The #1 New York Times bestselling Percy Jackson series—The Lightning Thief, The Sea of Monsters, The Titans Curse, The Battle of the Labyrinth, and The Last Olympian—features a dyslexic boy who discovers he is the son of a Greek god, the target of mythical Greek monsters, and the center of a prophecy that could change the balance of power in the world forever. In Demigods and Monsters, YA authors take on the series' Greek gods, demigods, monsters, and prophecy, to add insight and even more fun to Riordans page-turner series.

The book also includes an introduction by Percy Jackson series author Rick Riordan that gives further insight into the series and its creation, and a glossary of ancient Greek myth, with plenty of information on the places, monsters, gods, and heroes that appear in the series.
