PERCY IS BACK!!! YAY!!! And now with that out of my system, lets get to the review... :)
With huge chunks of his memory missing, Percy wakes up in a strange place known as the Wolf House. And there is only one thing he remembers... the name "Annabeth." From the Wolf House he makes his way to Camp Jupiter, a camp for demigod children of the Roman gods. What?! Yeah, I know! Crazy! And here is Percy, a Greek demigod who doesn't even remember Camp Half-Blood! Oh Hera, you evil goddess you. Well, she's not really evil since she's trying to save the world and all... but still! *glares at Hera*
Anyway, Percy Jackson, being the awesome hotshot demigod that he is, ends up going on a quest with Frank and Hazel (from this new camp) to defeat the giant Alcyoneus who is rising in Alaska AKA "The Land Beyond the Gods..." Ooooh, spooky. As always, there was tons of action and adventure, many surprises and crazy plot twists, and it was also very funny! Ah Percy, how I missed you and your sarcasm :)
I loved seeing all these new characters. I really liked Hazel and Frank and was so shocked to find out about their dark secrets and amazing powers... crazy stuff, I tell ya. We also run into some new monsters, some I've never heard of before, and others we've already seen in previous books!
The one thing though, I understand why it's told in the 3rd person POV, but it just so weird since I was used to Percy Jackson and his 1st person POV! But I guess I shouldn't complain... IT'S PERCY JACKSON, AND HE IS BACK! YAY!
Also, Rick is pretty amazing at writing those killer cliffhangers which my friend, who is also a fellow Percy Jackson fan, and I have dubbed as Rickhangers ;) Holy Hades!
It is no surprise that I absolutely LOVED this book! Rick is a mythology GENIUS! And actually, this is the second time I read The Son of Neptune because the first time I didn't review it... Anyway, this is a series I recommend to everyone! Young and old, whether you are a huge mythology fan like myself or want to learn about it... Read this! It's amazing and just so much fun!
Have you read this book? If so, what did you think about it? If not, what do you think? Does it sound like something you might want to read? Leave me a comment! :)
