Book Review: The Son of Neptune by Rick Riordan

Synopsis (from rickriordan.com): In The Lost Hero, three demigods named Jason, Piper, and Leo made their first visit to Camp Half-Blood, where they inherited a blood-chilling quest. Seven half-bloods shall answer the call, To storm or fire the world must fall. An oath to keep with a final breath, And foes bear arms to the Doors of Death. Who are the other four mentioned in the prophesy? The answer may lie in another camp miles away, where a new camper has shown up and appears to be the son of Neptune, god of the sea. . . With an ever-expanding cast of brave-hearted heroes and formidable foes, this second book in The Heroes of Olympus series offers all of the action, pathos, and humor that Rick Riordan fans crave.

Age: 9 or 10, but I would like to add that parents may want to read the books with their younger children and make it clear that the Greek and Roman gods aren’t real.

Inappropriate content: Very little.

My thoughts: Percy’s back!!! And Hazel and Frank are just the most wonderful Romans ever! I despise Octavian and I have mixed feelings about Reyna.

Sequels: The Son of Neptune, The Mark of Athena, and The Blood of Olympus.
