wait to see what adventures are in storeAw this is so cool I first started writing this a whole year ago Now I have finally read it yayFirst off I missed Leo One reason was because he brought so much comic relief which you need in a book like this Son of Neptune was a lot serious than the Lost Hero and all the Percy Jackson books I liked seeing Nico but I wanted of him Same with Thalia and ANNABETHWhat did I think of the three main charactersHazel Right away I loved her She was such a three dimensional character that was easy to read aboutFrank EhI m still not uite sure By the end of the book I was thinking I don t like him because he outshines my Percy Now though I guess he s okay I like him and he is slowing growing on mePercy Of course I missed him I loved his chaptersAll in

Rick Riordan ï 3 readKYYYYOkay that s an exaggeration I suppose And no this book isn t perfect But it made me really really really happy So that s enough for me I won t go into much detail about the plot since if you re reading this review you ve probably read the Percy Jackson the Olympians series and probably The Lost Hero as well Sooo you probably have at least the basic ideaBasically we get Percy back YAAAAAAAY In this book he has lost his memory and then stumbles upon a camp similar to Camp Half Blood only dedicated to the Roman gods instead of the Greek gods At this camp he soon befriends Frank and Hazel two lovely additions to the cast of characters who are both kids with pretty screwed up lives I won t spoil anything but let s Jimmy: The Terrorist just say they have both lost their mortal mothers and both have immortal fathers and both have terrible curses They also obviously like each other but don t want to admit it nor do they want to tell each other about their curses The trio ends up going on a uest to rescue Death and awesomeness ensuesFirst and foremost I want to say that I was infinitely happy to have Percy come back into the story again When he didn t make a single appearance in The Lost Hero I finished the book and looked like this girlSo when I first read the excerpt and discovered that Percy was one of the main characters I was SUPER EXCITED Now I know what we were all nervous about This is going to involve spoilers for The Lost Hero So if you haven t read itust go away We all know that horrible cliffhanger at the end of The Lost Hero informing us in the LAST FREAKING SENTENCE that Percy doesn t remember who he is any And that means a billion fangirls across the world instantly said OMIGOD HE FORGETS ANNABETH And burst into tears I was one of themIf that was the case I would have been seriously pissed off Seeing as Jason also lost his memory and mostly forgot both his girlfriends It seemed like a reasonable fear However on page 4 of Son of Neptune The city had some connection to Annabeth the only person he could remember from his pastTHANK GOOOOODDDDI can assure you ye fellow rabid Percabeth fans Rick Riordan is smart enough to realize he shouldn t mess with that Percy remembers Annabeth well enough that he knows not to go around snogging other hot girls I don t think I ve ever used the word snogging before But anyway you get the point There was nothing to worry about thereBut anyway back to Percy in general It is ust fabulous to have him back again It was interesting to see him in this new situation where he s the expert on everything rather than being the clueless one like he was at the beginning of The Lightning Thief AWW HE S GROWN UP SO MUCH sobs He pretty much spends the whole book kicking ass which is kind of unrealistic I guess and I kinda miss him being clueless but oh well It s cool with meAs for the new characters they re awesome Frank and Hazel are very well developed and so is their relationship They have uniue
And Intriguing Backstories Plus Theyintriguing backstories Plus they an adorable couple Okay kind of side note but there s one little thing that bothers me It seems like Rick Riordan always pairs up characters who are minorities That is he creates biracial couples but it s never a white person and a minority together I mean is he creates biracial couples but it s never a white person and a minority together I mean m happy that his characters come from all different kinds of backgrounds and that he s not too in your face about it like a lot of authors are But I don t know I ust find it a bit weirdThe plot is the typical Riordan plot everyone goes on a crazy uest where they encounter various mythological beingsgodscreatures along the way It s pretty much what you expect except Frank and Hazel s flashbacks give it a slightly darker tone than the Percy Jackson the Olympians series But even with the darker elements thrown in the usual humor is still there See uotes below Rick Riordan s humorous tone never fails to make me grin my head offSo anyway despite my love for this book now comes the slightly critical part My few issues with "This BookA It S "bookA It s of obvious that the whole Roman thing didn t occur to Rick Riordan until after he d written the Percy Jackson series And as much as he tries to explain it it still doesn t make a whole lot of sense to me It s weird that they ust never talked about Camp Jupiter at Camp Half Blood at all Also I still have trouble understanding how the Greek gods are also Roman gods Like they re the same but they re not I don t get it So do they have multiple personality disorder or somethingB I think Riordan might have messed up the timeline a bit When I was reading The Lost Hero I was under the impression that a couple of years had gone by although maybe I made this up entirely I seem to recall at the beginning of The Lost Hero when Jason met Annabeth he observed that she appeared to be a couple of years older than him and he was 16 Since Annabeth and Percy were both 16 at the end of the first series I assumed this meant that they were like 18 or so now But then at the beginning of Son of Neptune Percy mentions that he s still 16 and at the end of the book we re told that only two months have gone by Yeahhh I m confused too I guess Annabeth is ust older looking than she really is C Okay this one is a spoilerview spoilerI m still confused as to why Nico pretends not to know who Percy is At first I thought Nico had lost his memory too But then I was like Wait He doesn t What WHAT My BRAAAIIIN hide spoiler. Ky physiue makes him feel like an ox especially in front of Hazel his closest friend at camp He trusts her completely enough to share the secret he holds close to his heart This breathtaking second installment in the Heroes of Olympus series introduces new demigods revives fearsome monsters and features other remarkable creatures all destined to play a part in the Prophecy of Sev. Ond the borderlines Absolutely adored this book SO much better than the Lost Hero I felt connected to the characters and PERCY He was in the book I was seriously missing him All of his wit and snarky comments were back along with a whole bunch of ADORABLE thoughts about Annabeth as he regains his memory Definately one of my favorites Now I need the MArk of Athena Is it ust me or do those books get better and betterThe heroes are all so badass and Percy is well Percy is chef s kiss I really like Hazel and Frank too 3 But I m still so worried about what is going to happen All those prophecies they don t sound good Full RTC soon Stay tuned This was a fun ride I wanted to read this ever since I finished The Lost Hero and I can t believe it took me two freaking months to get to this lolI m here now though and I ll make sure to read this before my library reclaims it again Because well because PERCY 333I can t wait to see him again I missed my sarcastic boy so much XDGive me all that sassy Percy snark I ve been dying to read P I think this is going to be a lot of fun Also I m super curious about the Roman Camp 455Great book Slowish start but really picked up in the middle and had an EPIC ending 355This was my least favorite of the Percy Jackson books so far I think that the story is definitely heading in an interesting direction but I ust wasn t feeling it in this one It has taken me several tries over the months to even get through it I thought that except for Percy the characters were a little bland and I didn t care as much about the Roman camp and their mythology as much as the Greek I m not saying that it was bad I loved Percy and his sass and all of the Heads of the Colored People jokesust not my favorite compared to the previous books Rick Riordan has completely taken control over my mind In such a way that even if I want to read another book I can t Just can t I have been reading PJ books in row for almost two month I am supposed to get bored But NOIt s pretty obvious by the title we will get Percy back in this one When I first saw this book and didn t know a thing about greek or roman mythologies I thought Planet has a son How interesting OVERVIEW Without any past memories and being chased by two invincible monsters Percy finds Juno who leads him to the Camp Jupiter demi god camp for romans There he makes new friends Frank and Hazel During a game war god Mars appears and assigns them a uest of freeing the Death from the clutches of a giant in Alaska where gods can t do anything RANDOM THOUGHTS You know what I was very afraid of reading this book I thought Percy would forget Annabeth Like Jason forgot Reyna and ended up with Piper in the previous book Thank God that didn t happen Percy forgot everything but Annabeth I think Rick Riordan did that on purpose It was a good decision Otherwise I couldn t bear that Percy and Annabeth is the BEST Hazel and Frank both are new main characters Both have pretty sad background and Frank is sooooooooooooooo cute I liked both of them This is the great thing in the series that Gaea the antagonist is controlling everyone Even though she is not awoken I wonder what will happen if she will finally awakeMark of Athena I am comingSeptember 11 2017 Finished doing my re read of this I m trying to go through the whole series before the last book comes out in the fall I ll write a new review at some pointOld review under spoiler belowview spoilerBefore reading Son of NeptuneI WANT THIS BOOK SO BADLY AAHHHHH Okay reading
