Demigods and Monsters
Your Favorite Authors on Rick Riordan’s Percy Jackson and the Olympians Series
Edited by Rick Riordan
The #1 New York Times bestselling Percy Jackson series–including The Lightning Thief, The Sea of Monsters, The Titan’s Curse and The Battle of the Labyrinth–features a 12-year-old 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 Greek gods, monsters and prophecy, to add insight and even more fun to Riordan’s 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.
