Where can I find the PDF for Percy Jackson’s Greek Heroes?

I think that the Percy Jackson series was admirably accurate on many points, especially in the characterization of the gods. The main complaint I have is that many readers of the series come away with a distorted view on “demigods”. Rick Riordan chose to define a demigod as a mortal child of a god and a human, which is perfectly fine within the scope of the work, and to focus his tale on these demigods. However, this definition is not standard for Greek mythology nor is it an especially important one. In mythology, heroes didn’t have to be — and frequently weren’t — the child of a major god. Usually t had some amount of godly ancestry, but it could frequently be a more distant relationship. For example, Odysseus and Jason were great-grandsons of Hermes, their most recent godly ancestor. Hector was only a great-great-grandson of Zeus, and so on. Also, most demigods didn’t have “superpowers”. Mortals with divine ancestry did tend to be physically stronger and fairer in appearance, but skills like Hercules’ strength and Medea’s sorcery were very rare. Riordan depicts this accurately — most of the campers at Camp Half-Blood don’t have specific supernatural talents — but readers lose sight of this easily because a substantial number of major characters do. Update. It occurs to me now that there was a minor issue in The Titan’s Curse that bothered me. Riordan messed up the Hesperides. Riordan had five original Hesperides that were daughters of Atlas and Pleione. However, in mythology there are typically three Hesperides that are the daughters of Atlas and Hesperis, while Pleione was the mother of the Pleiades with Atlas.

In addition, Hesperia and Atlas are not the fathers of all the Hesperides, with Hesperia sometimes having more than one daughter. Riordan's story was that he based all the Hesperides on his own idea, which is fine (more on that below), but it did leave out important details. It also left out the story of Atlas' half-sister, whose existence is explained in the epilogue. The Hesperides are the children.
