The Son of Neptune

Percy is confused. When he awoke after his long sleep, he didn’t know much more than his name. His brain-fuzz is lingering, even after the wolf Lupa told him he is a demigod and trained him to fight. Somehow Percy managed to make it to the camp for half-bloods, despite the fact that he had to continually kill monsters that, annoyingly, would not stay dead. But the camp doesn't ring any bells with him.Hazel is supposed to be dead. When she lived before, she didn’t do a very good job of it. When the Voice took over her mother and commanded Hazel to use her “gift” for an evil purpose, Hazel couldn’t say no. Now, because of her mistake, the future of the world is at risk. Frank is a klutz. His grandmother claims he is descended from ancient heroes and can be anything he wants to be, but he doesn’t see it. He doesn’t even know who his father is. He keeps hoping Apollo will claim him, because the only thing he is good at is archery—although not good enough to help the Fifth Cohort win at war games. His big and bulky physique makes him feel like a clumsy ox, especially in front of Hazel, his closest friend at camp. He trusts her completely—enough, even, to share the secret he holds close to his heart. Beginning at the “other” camp for half-bloods and extending as far north as the land beyond the gods, this breathtaking second installment in the Heroes of Olympus series introduces new demigods, revives fearsome monsters, and features other remarkable creatures, all of whom are destined to play a part in the most important quest of all: the Prophecy of Seven.

I think it's really rare that the second book in a series is better than the first yet here we are. I don't know if it's because Percy is back in the series or if the adventure was just better or what, but I enjoyed Son of Neptune a lot more than The Lost Hero. I hope this is the end of the four d...
Fabulous. Riordan tells an amazing story and he keeps the pace up from start to finish. You never really want to put the book down until you're done.
Where is this set? This is a little different from the last book, as now we have switched back to our old friend, Percy Jackson. However, Annabeth, Percy’s girlfriend is not in this book. We have also switched camps to a tropical island (figuratively) for Heros. We’re now in New Rome, America. It’s ...
Percy! YaY! I really liked Hazel and Frank. I was glad to see Percy again. I think Camp Jupiter was an interesting contrast to Camp Half-Blood. It was great to see how the events in the first series came back. Octavian was so creepy and weird. Yes. Really this is not a review this is just my quick t...
