Just when I think Riordan can't get any better, he proves me wrong. The Son of Neptune was a thrilling, exciting, crazy, and absolutely bizarre adventure, and I loved every second of it.
The way that the chapters are split up between perspectives really works and I love that Riordan continues this through the series. The opportunity to read from several mind sets adds so much depth to the story. I so appreciate Riordan's writing prowess when it comes to this fact; he knew that if such massive books had only one perspective, boredom would endure.
I know that some people complain about the corny writing and jokes made throughout both PJO and HoO, but for me, that's part of the fun of it. The humor that is infused into each book is my favorite part, even if it is corny. I've laughed harder at the Percy Jackson books than any other book series I've read. For example, in this book, I loved the line about "Centurion Shish Kebab," and "The Doors of Me," too.
As much as I love Jason, Piper, and Leo from the debut book of Heroes of Olympus, I love Hazel and Frank just as much. I love that Frank got to unleash his boss side and take down some baddies. Hazel, that girl has some fire in her, and I love it!
As usual, the side characters brought so much to the story. Reyna is growing on me; now there's a boss. Octavian, though. What's that joker up to?
I find New Rome to be such a fascinating place. But one question: why does Rome get an entire city and Greece only gets a camp? This needs to be remedied pronto.
After finishing this book, I have so many questions that need answering!
What happened to Frank's grandmother?
Will the Seven finally be united?
Where is Nico? Is he ok?
Where does Sally Jackson think Percy is?
Who is officially dating whom?
I purchased this book at regular purchase price and am writing this review because I want to share our experiences with it.

I felt that there was a lot more background information in this one compared to The Lost Hero. Camp Jupiter, the Roman camp, was finally revealed and it was so different to its Greek counterpart but it was still just as brilliant. It was clear where the differences in the two sets of demigods lie. The Romans were organised and structured, which was reflected in its camp, whereas the Greeks were a lot more free and wild. I loved this because it gave us much more information on how the Romans acted and lived.
Overall this book gave so much more information than the first book and I felt the connection with the characters a lot more, I don't know if this is because we got to read from Percy's perspective again and are familiar with it a lot more than the new perspectives we had in The Lost Hero. Not to mention it was still as action-packed and fast-paced and immediately gripping as any Rick Riordan Book so it gave you a lot more freedom to enjoy it.
This camp, hidden from view and guarded by two lookouts who see Percy with the crone on his back and chased by monsters One of them signals him to follow her while the other deals with the Gorgons. After crossing the river, The Little Tiber and entering camp, the crone turns into Juno.
So Percy is introduced to The Legion as a probationer although The Praetor, Reyna recognizes him from Circe`s island, where she and her sister had spent time.
Percy is sent on quests with Frank and Hazel and sees the roman navy. The last quest is important, locating a lost "Eagle."
Truly an Epic set of stories from the First to the Last!!!
From Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief (Percy Jackson Books 1-5 plus two more extra books on the Greek Gods and Demigods) and continuing all the way through (Heroes of Olympus Books 1-5).
To end with The Blood of Olympus. An Epic story all the way through, a great coming of age story in beautiful and rich environments full of danger and mystery. A thoroughly cracking read. I loved it so much, I read it twice through. Wonderful.
