The series is getting a little worn. New monsters, new characters, but really mostly the same story line. It's an enjoyable read for all that, but nothing sets this apart from any of the others. ( )

I already loved Rick Riordan, but after reading this latest book in the Heroes of Olympus series, it is clear to me that Riordan has outdone himself again. This is a spoiler free review, so I won't go into details of the books. Let me say this though: this new cast of characters, and some old ones too, is absolutely brilliant! My new favorite character in these books is now Hazel Levesque. She is smart, seriously brave, a great friend (makes me wish she were mine!), and a terrible enemy to have. Gaea, beware, because with Hazel on Percy's side, there is no way she can win. Riordan introduces some other great characters. Frank is really sweet. Ok, so I will have ONE spoiler, and after it, no more, I promise:

It took me reading the book two times to figure out that Leo is Sammy's great-grandson, or something. It will be interesting to see who Hazel chooses. Me, personally, I would choose Leo, because there is nothing better than a guy who can make you laugh.

Son of Neptune is a great book. If you haven't read it, do. Now that I have read it and Throne of Fire, I don't know what to do with myself until the next books in the series come out! ( )

You know, the British cover kinda hints that Percy is going to be the main character in this book.
I can't wait! Rick Riordan, please write faster...pretty please with cherry on top? ( )

So I don't remember a ton of stuff from the other books in the preceding series and the first book of this series, but that ended up being okay, since the main character didn't either. I like the take on the various mythologies converging and it's a wonderful adventure story. I really feel for both frank and Hazel as neither of them will probably survive the series. Percy came off as a tiny bit arrogant but I do find myself wondering if that had something to do with the narration. The narrator was great at expressing feelings and generating excitement but his female voices did leave a little bit to be desired. I've already gotten started on the next volume. ( )
