While all the tale in the Files all happen during the summer between The Battle of the Labyrinth and The Last Olympian, the four novel in tha nove all happen at different times, which I found helped me nderstand and become more involved in the Percy Jackson universe.The Diary of Luke Castellan was a trul compelling read for me.
I also particularly liked how it also told the tory of Annabeth 's knife and how Luke found it and thi was extremely touching.
But I hink that 's just a Rick Riordan thing.Percy Jackson and the Staff of Hermes was everything I have waited for since I finished he Last Olympian.
There are some hings that only Leo Valdez can pull off -- ( view spoiler) [ like managing to create a party area in Bunker Nine within a minute.
At times, I felt mad at Percy instead of Alabaster -- and even realising Claymore acts like an idiotic mortal because he is one.
