There’s something for everyone in this collection of fast-paced and funny adventure stories that show what it takes to be a hero in any time, setting, and universe.
Step right up and enjoy this incredible collection from Rick Riordan Presents favorites! What we loved about this one was that it gave glimpses to characters from books we’ve already read and loved, or have on our TBR! I would highly recommend this for anyone who has read these books or wants to, but know that some of them contain spoilers for their feature titles.
These ten short stories pack a lot of action, a fun return to the worlds created by each author that gave the perfect glimpse of each character! I tried to pick a favorite, but I just enjoyed each one and how well written each was, full of great stories that nod to cultural mythology and incredible characters.
