Featured Article: Percy Jackson—A Percy Jackson and the Olympians Character Guide


Percy Jackson is the eponymous hero of the best-selling Percy Jackson and the Olympians series by Rick Riordan. He made his debut in The Lightning Thief at just 12 years old, where he discovered the shocking truth about his parentage: He is a demigod, the son of a mortal woman and the god Poseidon. Beyond his own series, he was one of the protagonists in the Heroes of Olympus series and has since appeared in other spin-off novels and series from Riordan.

The Mist and Luke explained.

What made the experience of listening to The Heroes of Olympus: The Demigod Diaries the most enjoyable?

The book really shows a bit more of Luke and why he did what he did. The end of the book also really explains how the mist works in an easily understood way. It also explains how the concept of magic works in all the previous percy jackson series .

Who was your favorite character and why?

Alabaster, because he explains the mist and he figures out solution to a problem that no one else could figure out, with the help of a human!

What does the narrators bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

I like how Riordan himself narrates in the book also Nick Chamian is better than in the blood of olympus.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Percy Jackson the Prequill

Haley Riotdan

Haley Riordan made a stunning debut in the son of magic. He really made me think more about what happened to the “bad halfbloods” I definitely recommend this book.

Unlike the rest of the series... Not the next book

Would you try another book from Rick Riordan and/or the narrators?

Yes, absolutely just not one like this. This isn't like the normal 1st person book. It reads like a mixed diary on the ledge of being close to the other story. It's not as interesting, powerful or adventurous. It gives you insights to the characters though but the narrator jump isn't nearly as smooth. It's confusing and the book seems to jump around a lot.

What could Rick Riordan have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

Write the book as a follow up story or adventure the same way the other books are written. This one seems like a hodge podge throw together of scenes cut out from the other books.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

It just doesn't have a familiar feel to the other books. I didn't enjoy it. It didn't grab me the same way the other two did.

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

The adventures jump around too much and doesn't really get you into the characters as quickly. He starts drawing you into stories and then jumps to another like a short story reading. The narrators are also very important to an audio book. Jumping back and forth vs. using them all together makes it hard to connect to the book plus I'd just gotten used to the last narrator of the other books. I belive he was the same narrator who reads the nymph section with leo. Having new narrators start the book also makes it hard to connect.
