SON OF NEPTUNE by Rick Riordan

October 4th, 2011 - Hyperion
Synopsis: In The Lost Hero, three demigods named Jason, Piper, and Leo made their first visit to Camp Half-Blood, where they inherited a blood-chilling quest:

Seven half-bloods shall answer the call,
To storm or fire the world must fall.
An oath to keep with a final breath,
And foes bear arms to the Doors of Death.

Who are the other four mentioned in the prophesy? The answer may lie in another camp thousands of miles away, where a new camper has shown up and appears to be the son of Neptune, god of the sea. . .

With an ever-expanding cast of brave-hearted heroes and formidable foes, this second book in The Heroes of Olympus series offers all of the action, pathos, and humor that Rick Riordan fans crave.
Well, I wasn't able to post on Friday because I left for a Boy Scout camp out. Turned out pretty well, but it was, like always, dirty, and kind of annoying.

Anyway, this will be another quick review because I'm working on Biology exams tonight. LAST WEEK BEFORE WINTER BREAK! :D

Pretty simply put, this book is fantastico-amazing-ish-coolarific. So so so so so so so good!

I'm a HUGE fan of the Percy Jackson books and so, of course, I'm a huge fan of this continuation, the Heroes of Olympus series. This series is really quite awesome-especially since the first two books of this series start with demigods being claimed by their parents. Also, there's kind of the introduction to a place that plays a ginormous rule in this series (won't say what for those of you who haven't read THE LOST HERO).

Of course, Riordan's really fun humor is in this. Sometimes it comes in the form of an elephant, a hippy goddess with vegan snack bars, reptilian salespeople, and dumb/cute frost-giants. :DDDDDDDDDDDDDD

I totally and completely recommend this series to anyone who likes YA/Middle Grade.

Well, as I write this, work on Biology, and have Tim Burton's Alice in Wonderland playing, I feel the beginning of a cold coming on....... Oh, gosh. It's the scene where she's jumping across the featureless gray, floating heads. Ewwwwwww.

Happy Frabjous Day,
