I'm not going to write out a full-blown detailed review like I did for the first Heroes of Olympus series but I can tell you Son of Neptune was amaaaaaazing. As if I couldn't love this series anymore, Riordan manages to make it so. I love the new cast of characters we meet - as well as the old favorites that take center stage of the story. Super-duper-double points for a cameo from my favorite satyr from the original PJO series! I'd still rather stay at Camp Half-Blood than Camp Jupiter, though. Just saying.

Also, I desperately need all of the fanart of Hazel in 1940s period clothes. RIGHT NOW. Answer to my every fannish whim, Internets!

The only gripe I have so far is that I'll have to wait until fall for Mark of Athena. Okay, not a legit gripe, but still. If it's about the character I think it is, it will probably be my favorite Riordan book yet. ( )

To sum up this book, Percy Jackson kicks Jason's ass, period.
Not literally, but in a characterizational way [and yes, I made up that word just for this].
To be fair, I've had a whole series to find out about Percy Jackson, and 1 book about Jason. ( )

A fun enough read. A few typos, weak prose, and lackluster characters prevent it from being a great one, though. ( )

That was an Awesome ride. I loved it. But now I got to wait till fall to see what happens. ( )

Brilliant, and very much in the style of the other Olympians books. Blew through this in a day, I kid you not. ( )
