Book Review: The Son of Neptune by Rick Riordan

Book Review: The Son of Neptune by Rick Riordan

Book Reviews | June 12, 2012

Wow. After The Lost Hero, which was extremely disappointing to me, The Son of Neptune is a definite improvement. I started really skeptically, and the first half was extremely slow and contrived, but the second half more than made up for it. The Positives I think should first give honorable mention to Ella. I think of all the […]

I have to say, coming off the high of The Last Olympian, this book is plain and simple: a letdown. There may be slight spoilers, so beware. Let’s start, however, with the positives. I was immediately ecstatic when I started reading because Riordan had decided to switch to third person narrative. I’ve always been a bigger fan of […]

Okay, this book was PERFECT. JUST PERFECT. That is the single best word to describe it. In each book one of my absolute favorite elements has been the introduction of the gods. In this book I must say it was Hestia. Goddess of the hearth – you always forget about her, but to me it strikes a chord, […]

Wow, the books in this series just get better and better don’t they? I enjoyed this one even more than The Titan’s Curse, which I honestly wasn’t expecting. There was so much story development, but I mean, there has to be when the two sides finally start fighting. I think the actual battle of the labyrinth was my […]

I think I’m really hooked on this series now, considering the fact that I read this book within a day. Well admittedly I’d want to read them all like this, but there’s exams in two weeks. This is so not good for me. This book was another great installment. Riordan has really picked up a winning formula here. […]

Wow. I am still loving this series. It’s getting even harder to not read, and focus on studying. As for the characters, I am loving Luke. I know, how could I? Really. But it’s so interesting – it’s like me loving Draco in Harry Potter, forever and always. I love it when the villain has such a different […]

I must admit, I was seriously late to this party. Sadly no one had ever thought to really recommend the Percy Jackson series to me. I did however see the movie quite soon after its release. I enjoyed it, but that was probably because I had no idea what the story was really like. Real fans of the […]
