“This is an amazingly interesting collection of essays examining the creation of Rick Riordan’s brilliant mind, the Percy Jackson series. After a wonderful forward by Mr. Riordan, various writers take their turn writing essays in their own unique style. You’ll find a touch of interesting wonderfacts, some humor and other perspectives on the phenomenon that is Percy Jackson!
You will NOT find a collection of Rick Riordan tales, but it is an interesting work that can be read in short spurts, one Essay at a time. Will you learn everything you always wanted to know about mythology and Percy? I’m going to say, probably not, but you can enjoy each piece, some more than others. If you have a curious mind, this could prove very entertaining, one bite at a time. For younger Percy devotees, this is a great way to show them how to look beyond the series!
