I'll excuse the kid for spelling Rick Riordan's name wrong. After finishing this one I'm fairly sure Annabeth is going to be the main character in the next one. And well, the title kind of confirms that. But I suppose I'll have to wait a year. Well, thus ends my ranting. Hope you enjoyed it. I just found this thing on Tumblr that was too funny not to post.
Ah hahahaha. View all 91 comments. I feel like I should give this a higher rating because I DO like this series! I was just kind of bored for most of this story. It started out really strong, but then a lot of scenes in the second half seemed like pointless filler and I really didn't care much. I think I'm just not that into the general format for these books They get sidetracked into a bunch of small skirmishe I feel like I should give this a higher rating because I DO like this series!
The plot structure kind of reminds me of The Mortal Instruments series. And that's not a bad thing I was clearly not in that mood. I love the characters and the diversity, though!! The way the Roman camp was set up was my favorite part and I wished the story had stayed there instead of heading to Alaska.
So I did enjoy the overall idea of the book, but it definitely lost my interest at times. It spent a lot of time establishing the sequels, though, so I'll check those out! View all 7 comments.

Oct 20, Joyzi rated it it was amazing Recommends it for: Cutesy Fans of Riordan.
April 1 Wow! I finished it! I feel like it has been a long time since I read something fictional is that the right word? I picked this one up just to go back to my old bookworm self thinking hey it's Percy Jackson it's fun, juvenile, nothing serious I'll definitely finish it and not watch another movie It's still the April 1 Wow! It's still the old Riordan, the story is still interesting and a lot of fun.
There are new roman gods and demigods and I especially like the god with an OCD. That's pretty much it. I loved it and I'm going to read the next one after my brother return my nook since he's not yet finish reading Catching Fire.
Thoughts before reading Rick Riordan writes faster please please please!!! Oh my gods! There's another camp with the Roman demigods this time! I'm sure it will be cool on the next book and that we'll gonna meet some kiddos of Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, Pluto et cetera et cetera basically all the planets of our Solar System.
Son of Neptune? Is this Percy Jackson or another character another son of Poseidon??? Percy Jackson in the new camp, amnesiac and confused and all that like Jason was. Could it possibly be that there's also another girl in the other camp that he might fall in love with?
Jason already have a girlfriend in his old camp and then in the future there would be a love triangle. We had met the three kids of the prophecy, Jason son of Jupiter , Leo son of Hephaestus and Piper daughter of Aphrodite. May 26, ambsreads rated it it was amazing Shelves: You can add it to your books, engrave it on your floor, whatever.
Find Thanatos and free him. Come back by sundown on June twenty-fourth or die. The second book focuses on three different characters than the first novel. We finally get Percy, who is suffering from amnesia just as Jason was in the first book. It's always slightly annoying to be retold everything. Having learnt about the Greek world in the original series I got a tad annoyed at Percy's inner monologue at the beginning. Though, that soon passed as I did get absorbed into the world of the Roman camp.
I was sucked in despite already having read the book. I think because of the first book in the spinoff and this one it's possible not to have read the original series before diving in.
Of course you'll be spoiled but just in case you weren't interested in the first series but this one it's possible to read! Percy looked at his teammates. We get to learn about the different personalities they took on when changing cultures and how there are some different gods mingled in as well.
It was really interesting to read about, even if it was the second time for me. To me it doesn't seem like Rick recycled his main character formula for the characters. Of course two of the characters become a couple, but it wasn't so closely connected to the personalities that were presented in Percy Jackson. Percy is the character we know and love throughout the book. He clings to a single memory of Annabeth, one of the only things he remembers.
He asks stupid questions, misinterprets things but is also sassy as hell and quick to pick up things. Though, I guess you would if you were dating a daughter of Athena. She's a person of colour, which I found nice to have in the book despite it very rarely being mentioned. Hazel has a secret, however. A secret that is pretty intense and honestly I love it. Frank is a lactose intolerant demigod. Not an important fact, but I just found it amusing since I'm also lactose intolerant.
I'm going to claim being a demigod now, thank you very much for Frank. He also adds another aspect of diversity to the characters as he's Chinese and Canadian.
Frank himself also has a secret, because why not?! Likes - Reyna - War games - sites having the company site? Genius - Franks grandma - The sites - The battles Dislikes - "Cinnamon toast coloured hair" I'm honestly not even sure what this means just don't like it - Octavian I mean dude is hardcore evil and also anyone who destroys stuff animals is in my bad books - The battle at Camp Jupiter was way too short for my liking Overall, definitely a stellar book.
I absolutely recommend this series to people who have read the Percy Jackson or are purely interested in Rick's writing but don't want to read about a younger protagonist.
Also, if things in the review don't make sense it's because I wrote it while sitting at a bus stop waiting for my mum to pick me up after travelling on two buses and a train already. Happy reading everyone! The Son of Neptune is going to be a big hit. OH MY!!! M - May, 26th, the time in Asia, not in America Is it necessary to put every details about me reading the son 8: M - May, 26th, the time in Asia, not in America Is it necessary to put every details about me reading the son of Neptune I have just read chapter 1 of the book.
OMG, it was Percy point of view He seems tougher, stronger and poor him I thought that Percy is the son of Neptune. I've think they mention him is a child of Roman, I couldn't understand why, he is obviously a child of the Greek.
But luckily, he remembers Annabeth! Yes, don't worry my friends, I hope he will not love another person! Hope so! Comments from my friends from a group: Also, The Son of Neptune's cover was first seen in public during the webcast, and it was a great cover entitled "Percy holding a chicken-on-a-stick".
I am dying Anyone know CPR?!?!?! Z Sam: Then does anyone know Inter-CPR?!?!?! LOL, I don't know, don't worry View all 61 comments. May 21, carol. After taking a gander at the other reviews, I realize I may have wandered into the wrong part of the playground. I hereby promise to use no hearts or exclamation points when reviewing this book. Super-quick synopsis: He is adopted by misfits Hazel, daughter of Pluto, and Frank, of the unknown father, into their Legion cohort.
Camp politics occur, a quest is given, and the three set-off to After taking a gander at the other reviews, I realize I may have wandered into the wrong part of the playground. Camp politics occur, a quest is given, and the three set-off to the "land beyond the gods," Alaska and don't you just wonder what Riordan was insinuating there??
Along the way they encounter antagonistic wild grain as opposed to cereal grains , R. Character growth ensues. Overall, a fun and quick read that improves significantly once the heroes leave on their quest.
I give Riordan credit for integrating so much information about Roman culture in a mostly natural way, through the device of Percy experiencing the camp for the first time.
A number of flashbacks for both Hazel, the female lead, and Frank, the other male lead, don't encourage forward plot motion. Although I can't say I like it, Riordan doesn't pull punches on selfish behavior, and I admire the way the teens in the book can be as self-interested, manipulative and as driven as adults. The main reasons I continue to read this series is its focus on mythology and the swiftly moving plot.
I found myths to be integrated well, in an entirely different way from the first book. I appreciate having my memory jogged about Roman mythology, and it was interesting when Percy has a bit of a meltdown realizing that the benevolence of certain beings like fauns, centaurs and cyclops is different depending on your mythological background. Luckily, Isis has some green tea to fix him right up. One criticism is that I was a little annoyed that the female lead is being set up with a shameful secret again --can we forget the duplicitous female as a character option?
I guess because we are talking Greek and Roman here, maybe not, as their favorite goddesses seemed to be the virginal ones like Athena and Artemis. I suppose the male, Frank, has a shameful secret, but his shame has more to do with self-esteem than with morality. Only our lead 'heroes' in his books, Jason and Percy, are without shameful pasts that they know.
Character award goes to Ella, book-loving but vocabulary-challenged, in the best harpy appearance ever. She touched on all those things young conforming teens hate most--glueten-free foods, tea, non-aggression, and man-satchels. But she was allowed a very nice speech about self-definition: And Taoism. I haven't decided between them.
I'm not defined by my past. Like classic Muppets, Riordan integrates enough references to keep adults entertained. Nice balance of humor and seriousness, examining issues of identity and belonging. Three and a half stars. Cross posted at my permanent home: View all 11 comments.
Enchantress rated it really liked it Shelves: Reyna is such a strong female leader. I like her. I like this book better than first one, probably because we have Percy again: View 2 comments. View 1 comment. Some shenanigans while I sing and dance Maybe there had been a mix-up. To the finish. I'm so glad Percy is back! Percy and Annabeth reuniting was the highlight of the book for me. Of course: My rating system: I do use half stars.
Not because a book might not be worthy, but because a book is never perfect. There weren't too many flaws, and I had no trouble getting through it. A 4 star rating is the highest rating I've ever given a book. And I always love reading about quests.
I especially love when the demigods meet weird people Phineas, Stheno and Euryale, Terminus that are so ridiculous and funny af. I wish this book was less dense and slow and long though. Their backstories were too much detailed sometimes that reading felt like moving through quicksands or Alaskan mudflats if we want to be specific haha! So far I prefer the first series to this one.
But I still enjoy reading about the camps and the various adventures. Finally this amnesia plot is over so I guess the next book will be better. View all 8 comments. Apr 29, Helen 2. Another Percy Jackson book - here we go again There's a real pattern I'm seeing with plots in Riordan's books and unfortunately he doesn't ever seem to stray very far from his one blueprint. It's always like this: The Son of Neptune fits the same pattern all over again, I have to say I'm getting bored with the repetition.
Riordan occasionally tries to insert a little commentary about our own world into his books, kind of like this: That would have been glorious. But really, the world is in almost as bad a shape now. I also need to complain about the romance between Hazel and Frank because there was no chemistry to be found.
Their love story was the kind where a boy and a girl realize they're both straight and happen to have an individual of the opposite gender nearby, so they think, "Hey, why not? Let's get together. Very unimpressive. I do commend Rick Riordan on the big steps he's made towards diversifying the Percy Jackson books. We now have a gay necromancer, a latino pyromaniac, an African American psychic's daughter, and a Chinese warrior joining the cast of demigods in the series.
I definitely enjoyed the journey away from typical US East Coast folk, for once. Despite problems with the book, I still enjoyed it as a whole. I love the teenage snark in every chapter and the ridiculous situations in which our heroes inadvertently find themselves again and again.
Perfec example: Those kids really grow on me, faults and all. I've already started Mark of Athena since I'm doing a full series read-through this month. The story follows the adventures of amnesiac Percy Jackson, a demigod son of Poseidon, as he meets a camp of Roman demigods and goes to Alaska with his new friends Hazel Levesque and Frank Zhang to free the Greek god of death, Thanatos and help save the world from Gaea, the earth goddess. The novel is narrated in third-person, switching between the points of view of Percy, Frank, and Hazel.
I loved it. View all 4 comments. Mar 02, Vanessa J. I want to say I loved this, but that would be lying. Most of the time I was confused, annoyed, or bored. Those three are not good when combined, trust me. Instead of following the story with the characters introduced in The Lost Hero , this book takes us to a now amnesiac Percy, who turned out to be wandering alone but now is in the Roman equivalent of Camp Half-Blood: Camp Jupiter.
