Son of Neptune was even BETTER than the Lost Hero, which I did not think was possible. I hold Rick Riordan in very high esteem, because his second series containing some of the same characters is just as amazing as the first Percy Jackson series.
I loved that both Jason Grace and Percy Jackson, the most powerful of each camp, lost their memories and switched places. I loved Jason’s characters, as well as Piper and Leo, but reading about Percy and his adventures and new friends brought back the magic of the older Percy Jackson series.
I couldn’t put the book down! The action and excitement of a new quest kept me turning pages, but the action was never too overwhelming.
Percy is an awesome character. He’s brave, and loyal, and downright awesome because he’s a son of Poseidon – or Neptune, rather. But Hazel Levesque and Frank Zhang gave him a run with his money! Both new characters, with secrets of their own to hide, were intriguing and different. Their powers were fun to read about.
The cliffhanger ending killed me. Can’t wait for the next book in the series!!
