The Son of Neptune By: Rick Riordan The Son of Neptune by Rick Riordan is the second book of its series, the Heroes of Olympus. Published in 2011, the book follows up on Percy Jackson, the son of Poseidon who has been missing from his Camp, called Camp Half-Blood. The book starts off with Percy, who is being chased by gorgons for the sole reason that he is the son of Poseidon. Percy has no idea why he is being chased, but there is one name that was left in his head. Annabeth. Percy thinks that there is a deep meaning to why he only remembers the name Annabeth, but while running away from the gorgons, he ends up in Camp Jupiter. There he meets Hazel and Frank, who show him around and are soon taken on a quest that will change their life. Compared to the first book of the series, I find this book a major improvement. It is filled with very interesting characters from Greek Mythology, and the action in this book is just extraordinary and outstanding. If you have read the first book and didn’t find it interesting, read this book of redemption by Rick Riordan and you’ll definitely want to read more of the series!
