Book Review: The Son of Neptune
Author: Rick Riordan
My Rating: 5/5
2nd Book: the first is The Lost Hero
Previous Books: All the Percy Jackson and the Olympian books: The Lightning Thief, The Sea of Monsters, The Titans Curse, The Battle of The Labyrinth, The Last Olympian. (These should all the read before reading this series "The Heroes of Olympus")
I liked this book so much better than the first. Probably because Percy was in it. The first one felt like it was trying to be a Percy Jackson story without Percy. I don't know it just felt like it was missing something. Anyway you get to see all the old characters and met new ones. Deal with all new kinds of monsters, not all of them with poisonous fangs or sharp teeth.
I really enjoyed the jumping between characters that Riordan has been doing in this series. It does give the series a distinct feel. and it is nice to have the different perspectives. With all the different new characters is also gives a chance for us to get to know them a little faster.
Overall I was very pleased with it, and enjoyed it immensely!
