The Son of Neptune
The Son of Neptune: Heroes of Olympus Book 2 | Rick Riordan
Percy is confused. When he awoke after his long sleep, he didn't know much more than his name. His brain-fuzz is lingering, even after the wolf Lupa told him he is a demigod and trained him to fight. Somehow Percy managed to make it to the camp for half-bloods, despite the fact that he had to continually kill monsters that, annoyingly, would not stay dead. But the camp doesn't ring any bells with him.Hazel is supposed to be dead. When she lived before, she didn't do a very good job of it. When the Voice took over her mother and commanded Hazel to use her "gift" for an evil purpose, Hazel couldn't say no. Now, because of her mistake, the future of the world is at risk. Frank is a klutz. His grandmother claims he is descended from ancient heroes, but he doesn't even know who his father is. He keeps hoping Apollo will claim him, because the only thing he is good at is archery. His big and bulky physique makes him feel like a clumsy ox, especially in front of Hazel, his closest friend at camp. He trusts her completely-enough, even, to share the secret he holds close to his heart. Beginning at the "other" camp for half-bloods and extending as far north as the land beyond the gods, this breathtaking second installment in the Heroes of Olympus series introduces new demigods, revives fearsome monsters, and features other remarkable creatures, all of whom are destined to play a part in the most important quest of all: the Prophecy of Seven.

This was my least favorite book from the Heroes of Olympus series but after listening to the audiobook, I was properly able to love it. It gave me a whole new perspective on all the characters. If you haven‘t listened to this book is audio, you really should.

I greatly enjoyed reading the second part of this series and am looking forward to the next one. This book introduced more new characters that I adore and taught me more about the Roman gods. Overall, a great read! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

My friend Percy is back! I enjoyed greatly learning about the Roman gods and the Roman military. Hazel and Frank were cute too, but Percy remains my favorite. I would have liked to read more chapters from his point of view, although I liked that those occured more when he got his memory back. Franks special power was also nice to learn about. Also, I will protect Ella with my life, and would like to meet Iris. She seems cool!

BooksChocolatesCoffees Percy is my favourite too! :P It's so basic but so cool at the same time ;) 5mo

I‘ve been in a bit of a reading slump and I wasn‘t loving the first bit of this book. I liked learning about a new setting and group of people but there was a camp games type event that went on a bit too long for me. After that, though, the action really took off and I was invested. I think Riordan does a great job and slowly introducing more aspects of the characters‘ personalities...

These are always fun and easy reads. I enjoyed the historical elements of this as well as uncovering the characters' secrets along with them. It was nice to get back to Percy, but I missed the characters from the last book

I prefer reading about Percy it seems since I enjoyed this one more that the first. On to a new force looking to destroy the half bloods. We learn about Camp Jupiter a Roman military camp that could be the key to defeating this new enemy.

In this installment, we get some answers that tie in nicely to Jason Grace's mystery. Also, Alaska. Another fun road trip quest.

(quarantine book #100; read a book featuring an adventure/journey)

I am loving this series. This book switched to what felt like a whole new world - camp Jupiter. But with some familiar faces.

Moving on to book 2. This is the most time I‘ve let myself spend *just reading* — not reading for school and taking notes/prepping for a writing assignment, not listening to an audiobook while driving or cooking or cleaning — in who even knows how long. Grateful for my perfect reading nook on my porch, and Rick Riordan, and green and growing things. 🌱 🌺 📖 📚

Deifio Enjoy your reading time! 1y

This is sort of the parallel story to the first book, showing what Percy Jackson has been up to while he's been missing. Percy has to go on a quest with some members of the other demigod camp in order to battle the giants, who are planning an attack. 4⭐

Another good one from Riordan! Second in the Heroes of Olympus series we meet our old friend Percy as he embarks on a quest with two Roman demigods, each with a secret. Epic hi-jinx ensue.

Book two of the year, first one down for #JumpStart2020. Now what to choose next...

Well, I thought the tagged book would be either my last of 2019 or my first of 2020, but it was neither. I‘m still working on it (life got in the way today). Instead, last finished was Aphrodite the Beauty, in the MG Goddess Girls series (required reading from the kiddo) and first finished this year was The Spider Sapphire Mystery read-aloud with the kiddo. It wasn‘t a great start! 😬

Happy New Year! With today‘s time I got about 25 hours 33 minutes in #24B42020 - less than I‘d hoped but better than expected. I wanted to finish one more book (tagged) but I picked more than I could bite off. Plus reading 2/3 of a Nancy Drew to the kiddo today, then we watched a movie while waiting for fireworks to wind down; it all cut into my reading. Guess I‘ll finish this for my first read of 2020!

My family and I bought the whole “Heroes of Olympus“ collection when it was on sale, and now I'm finally getting around to reading it.
400 pgs

Percy is confused. He wakes up from a long sleep and didn't know anything besides his name. He somehow makes it to another camp of half-bloods. The only thing he can recall from his past is one name: Annabeth.

I may have accidentally bought the last four books in this series today while I was out running errands...and two Lori Foster romances, one of which is the last in the series I‘m currently reading...and ordered the third and fourth books in Devon Monk‘s Allie Beckstrom series...and preordered the next Disney Princess Beginnings book for the kiddo.

I was out to pick up a prescription and look for a new pair of shoes...

I think I got this! Say hello to the Karpoi. They‘re grain spirits - children of the original Greek gods, Tartarus and Gaea. I know this thanks to Percy Jackson rather than that Ancient History paper I took in university 😂😂😂 Anyway they‘re one of PJs enemies. Great scene in this book where the heroes are sitting recovering in a field and the wheat grabs one of them and drags them away! (Art is from the graphic novel)

Centique PS I‘ve now read seven of these books aloud to my kid and have gained a healthy respect for Rick Riordan. They‘re action packed with fully formed characters, girls kick butt and save the world frequently and there‘s good diversity in the later novels. 3y
TheKidUpstairs Great pick! I've never read any Riordan myself, but from what I've heard he really knows his mythologies! 3y
