“Life is only precious because it ends, kid” Son of Neptune (Heroes Of Olympus #2) follows Percy Jackson as we wakes up from his long sleep, not even knowing his name. Then, he is chased by two gorgons (siblings of Medusa) to Camp Jupiter, a camp for Roman demigods. Thereupon, he is sent on a quest with two other demigods- Frank Zhang and Hazel Levesque who have secrets of their own- to free Thanatos- God of Death. Also, they have to kill a giant, who cannot die in his homeland, to stop Gaia (Mother Earth, who's the bad guy here) from awaking fully. So, I'm going to be honest with y'all and say that yes, for a couple of hundred pages this book was so unexciting and dull. But then, it picked up so well that I had to finish the remaining two fifty pages in two days (mind you, I'm not that fast a reader). This book was filled with unexpected bursts of laughter, sarcasm, plot twists, page turning thrill and of course more humour because, come on, it's Rick we talking about. I'm so glad I have already stocked up the rest of the series so that when I finish one book I can immediately start the next one. So, pick this book up if you're looking for fiction, fantasy, thriller, humour and a whole lot of other genres.
This book was so much better than the first book where Jason kept fainting 😂 Percy's POV is so much fun to read. And Hazel and Frank were equally engaging. I really liked how these three blended together so well and trusted each other enough to be open from the very beginning, unlike the Lost Hero crew. Also, Nico, what the eff dude?! 😑 Side note: Disney Hyperion hardcovers are very pretty.
I bought the hardcover book for RS 349!! That's a steal deal!!!!!! Thank you amazon for such a crazy deal :) The packaging is amazing, book is in great shape (except for a couple of dark smudges :( ) and it's fun to read. The second book in the Heroes of Olympus series, the book is a great read. Rick Riordan is amazing, it's astonishing how he can think all this up <3 A must read for all book lovers and especially for Percy Jackson fans. It's great to have Percy back
"Hazel felt as if she had just introduced two nuclear bombs. Now she was going to see which exploded first."
Percy has been abducted by Hera due to the impending threat of Gaia waking up. Rick reveals there are not just one, but two camp, one Greek and one Roman! Percy's memory is wiped out and he remembers nothing of his pasr life apart from tiny fragments. He arrives at the Roman camp to discover that a big issue is at hand. Monsters and Demigods and even MORTALS cannot die! To stop ghe dead from coming back to life without judgement, Percy and his newfound Roman friends Frank and Hazel embark on a quest. This book is quite different and unique than I expcted it to be, but overall, it was great. Thumbs up, Rick!
Awesome one. I don't know how intelligent Uncle Rick (the troll) is. Where the hell did he get the idea of writing such books ???? Anyways, its good to have Percy back in the series because in the first book, I thought as if a big part of me was missing in the book. Awesome and recommended.
The price was a bit high but the delivery was very quick, the condition of the book is perfect and it's a Rick Riordan book so obviously it's the best!! We get to meet new characters! And overall Percy Jackson is the best!!! Also there are quite a lot Percabeth moments which the fans will enjoy!!! So it's a must buy for that camp half-blood fans!!! Enjoy!
