The Son of Neptune (Heroes of Olympus, Book 2) Paperback – July 2, 2013 by Rick Riordan (Author)

What the what?!Just when I think Riordan can’t get any better, he proves me wrong. The Son of Neptune was a thrilling, exciting, crazy, and absolutely bizarre adventure, and I loved every second of it. The way that the chapters are split up between perspectives really works and I love that Riordan continues this through the series. The opportunity to read from several mind sets adds so much depth to the story. I so appreciate Riordan’s writing prowess when it comes to this fact; he knew that if such massive books had only one perspective, boredom would endure. I know that some people complain about the corny writing and jokes made throughout both PJO and HoO, but for me, that’s part of the fun of it. The humor that is infused into each book is my favorite part, even if it is corny. I’ve laughed harder at the Percy Jackson books than any other book series I’ve read. For example, in this book, I loved the line about "Centurion Shish Kebab," and "The Doors of Me," too. As much as I love Jason, Piper, and Leo from the debut book of Heroes of Olympus, I love Hazel and Frank just as much. I love that Frank got to unleash his boss side and take down some baddies. Hazel, that girl has some fire in her, and I love it!As usual, the side characters brought so much to the story. Reyna is growing on me; now there’s a boss. Octavian, though. What’s that joker up to?I find New Rome to be such a fascinating place. But one question: why does Rome get an entire city and Greece only gets a camp? This needs to be remedied pronto. After finishing this book, I have so many questions that need answering!What happened to Frank’s grandmother?Will the Seven finally be united?Where is Nico? Is he ok?Where does Sally Jackson think Percy is?Who is officially dating whom? Check it out!

Amazon.com Review Amazon Best Books of the Month, October 2011: From the Roman demigod camp to the prison of Death himself, The Son of Neptune reunites readers with old friends and introduces them to a whole new cast of characters. The Roman camp is a far cry from Camp Half-Blood, but it’s every bit as fascinating to explore. Our heroes battle up and down the West Coast with impossibly few days before disaster is unleashed, fighting new foes and finding new friends along the way. Some of the mysteries from The Lost Hero are solved, while others loom even larger. Rick Riordan is a master at balancing just the right amount of seriousness and levity in every situation, and his three teen narrators point out the strangeness of the iterations of ancient myths in the modern world with spot-on accuracy. With page-turning adventure, witty dialogue, and fun, fascinating characters, this second installment of the Heroes of Olympus series is a must-read for any fan of myths and fables. –Malissa Kent –This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.


The Son of Neptune (Heroes of Olympus, Book 2) Paperback – July 2, 2013 by Rick Riordan (Author) Review

I am really liking this whole Roman aspect of the gods but mostly, I love that Percys back! I missed him. Another thing I loved: his entire memory is wiped, but he remembers Annabeths name and that is enough. Rick Riordan knows how to show some appreciation for Percys adoring fans. Percy is at his most impressive in The Son of Neptune. The story begins as he battles two comical gorgons in Bargain Mart greeter vests, who carry some poisonous discount snacks I must admit, I developed a soft spot for Stheno. He carries old hippy-lady / Juno across a highway where he meets my new favorite demigods, Hazel Levesque (daughter of Hades) and Frank Zhang ( with quite the extraordinary heritage, even for a demigod) across the Tiber River, and into Camp Jupiter. Here he is able to show off his vast power over water, crushing the gorgons, and saving Franks life. Finally, Juno reveals that horrible things are about to happen, and so they will need Percy. During the camps version of capture-the-flag, the 5th cohort (Percys new group and laughingstock of the camp) pulls off a tremendous win, causing Ares I mean, Mars to show himself and present the plucky trio with a prophecy and a quest. Granted, his prophesy is not as mysterious and rhyme-y as we are accustomed, but it gets the job done: Go to Alaska. Find Thanatos. Come back by sundown on June twenty-fourth or die. Did I mention Thanatos/Death has been captured thus, the bad guys just wont die?This is one of the best adventures for Percy so far! There is humor, heart, action, all kinds of monsters, Roman myths, and suspense through the entire quest. more on -Read Reviews-

This book picks straight up from The Lost Hero were it is shown that Percy has lost his memory. All through the book Percy is trying to get his memory back. Other friends are trying to find Percy as well. Also a traitor is trying to kill Percy. There are many things I like about this book. The first thing is that there always funny moments that would always force you too laugh. Another thing I like is that there is suspension that makes your jaw drop. The final thing I like is that it is very creative. However there are some things I dislike about this book. There are some moments in the book that are repeated over and over again. Another thing I disliked about this book was that the book was to short being only 400 when the lost hero was 500. The final thing I dislike about this book is that Percy’s character traits have changed to much. Many people claim that the book is very bad. To that I respond could you write better? Some people claim this book is a wannabe Harry Potter. To that I respond it is a completely different story line. All in all, this book was great and Rick Riordan has done it again bringing back Percy almost how he was before. It had it’s ups and downs but overall it was amazing. I can’t wait for the next book and that it has elements such as this.
