Title: The Son of Neptune (The Heroes of Olympus #2)
Author: Rick Riordan
Release Date: October 4, 2011 by Disney Hyperion
One word: cool. Really, cool. I finally got to meet Hazel and Frank, reunited with Percy, and well, learned some stuff about the Roman camp they call as Camp Jupiter.
Jason was right. Percy lost his memories just as Jason did and was sent to Camp Jupiter thanks to Hera/Juno whatever. The only thing that I thanked Hera for was that she left Annabeth’s memory so Percy still knows who she is.
Well, in this book, I was introduced to Camp Jupiter. Learned some of the stuff they do inside their camp. I still prefer Camp Half-Blood though, except that in Camp Jupiter, you get to live longer and have a family of your own.
And Percy’s thought though…
Percy imagined what it would be like: getting an apartment in this tiny replica of Rome, protected by the legion and Terminus the OCD border god. He imagined holding hands with Annabeth at a cafe. Maybe when they’re older, watching their own kid chase seagulls across the forum…
I’m still amazed and totally loving how things were going. Not to mention Nico di Angelo’s gotten hotter. But seriously, being a son of Hades and all, he’s so sexy and mysterious. I can’t believe he’s the same person that collected those Greek miniatures.
The adventures and near death experiences are totally cool. And who would’ve thought Ares or Mars will be quite funny? Because really, I was laughing when he was looking for a ballpen.
Sadly, the book still left me hanging. Percabeth reunion feels so near… really near but Rick Riordan ended it without Percy seeing his Greek demigod friends.
The Son of Neptune does not just set us in an adventure but at the same time, teaches us lessons like loyalty, bravery and all. I love how Rick Riordan wrote this book. Not one dull moment!! I just totally did not like how it ended. Guess I just had to read the next book…
