Percy Jackson and the Singer of Apollo
The trouble starts when Apollo introduces Percy and his friend Grover the satyr to the Chryseae Celedones. Three golden women--living statues--appear in front of them, and sing one blissful chord. Apollo has a concert tonight at Mount Olympus, and he needs the Celedones as his backup singers. But there should be a quartet, not a trio--one of the singers has gone rogue. It's up to Percy and Grover to find the missing Celedon somewhere in New York City before she causes any problems. Capturing an attention-seeking automaton in a crowd of mortals is going to require some cagey thinking. Will Percy and Grover succeed, or hit a sour note?

Percy Jackson and the Singer of Apollo Review

    Definitely not the most meaty addition to the Percy Jackson universe but still super fun! This made me remember how much I’ve missed Grover in Riordan’s more recent books.

    A great short story with another adventure for Percy and Grover. This has humour, adventure, more humour and it is a fantastic read. Riordan has done it again.

    This was such a fun story. Very short, but nice. Makes me want to read the Percy Jackson books again. I want to read new books with him as an adult!

    It's Grover's birthday, so Percy takes him his favorite treat: cans. Apollo comes because he has a trio of automaton singers and his problem is that it's supposed to be a quartet. One of his singing automatons has gone rogue. Apollo assigns Percy and Grover the task of finding and bringing the automaton to him before his production. He also lends Grover his lyre, which will help in the quest. The automaton is not happy to be tracked down and uses her enchanted voice to evade capture.

    Another Percy Jackson story...my copy was marked as associated with The Trials Of Apollo but really it's in the Olympians series. Fun but definitely more of the same.

    It was awesome, and when I first picked up this book, I thought it would just be some random book that Rick Riodan wanted to write to continue and never end the Percy Jackson books, because the summary was quite ridiculous to me, but I had it in my to-reads section. I mean, Apollo and his concert and the plot was kind of stupid to me when I read the back of the book. The quest was also weird, too.

I mean, Apollo and his concert and the plot was kind of stupid to me when I read the back of the book. The quest was also weird, too. Who interrupts Grover Underwood's birthday party just to ask them to find a celedone that's missing? OK, sometimes Apollo is WAY too self-centered. It's just a stupid concert, and your voice already sounds good enough! ( I've never heard you sing, or even talk, before, but I'm judging your voice by the way you look, and you look HOT, so I think your voice is good.) But, never judge a book by its cover, right? (OK, even I have to admit, that saying is often not true. In this case it's true, though.) It turned out to be awesome and hilarious, Apollo is just so nice to have around. I was laughing till I cried most of the time. So, I totally didn't regret buying this. Before, I thought I knew that this book was going to be a time-waster. But now, I don't really think so.

    Wonderful short story as usual focused on Percy and Grover and it was fun reading about him. I don't think that we would be getting a full flegded series about Percy again so these snippets from his life are perfect.This time Percy is celebrating Grover's birthday while he is accosted by Apollo tasking with searching the title of the story. It's fun and quick loved it, you also enjoy it and keep on reading.

    Basically, this is just like all the other short stories that Riordan wrote in the past; it's fun, easy to read and it feels like a short or minisode. I just hope that one day this might be placed in a re-released version of Demigod Diaries. Also, this would've been a perfect bonus addition to the first Trials of Apollo book.

    Really goodThis is an amazing book and I would recommend it to any percy jackson fan. It is a short story but it is filled with comedy. I really enjoyed all the details and I think it's a really great book.

    This was an exciting quick read. I would definitely think of it as a supplemental story. Kind of off the beaten path for Percy and Grover. I enjoyed the unique "monsters" involved. It was very short!

    Fun storyA fun quick read for Riordan fans... if you read his Apollo books, it makes the story even funnier. You will also look at gold statues in a different way.
