I just finished reading The Son of Neptune. It is by Rick Riordan. Rick Riordan is the author of many other of my favorite series such as “Percy Jackson and the Olympians” and “The Kane Chronicles”. The Son of Neptune was superb was many reasons. First, it combined mystery, fiction, and fact perfectly. This combination made the book exciting and intriguing. Second, there was an immense amount of action. The characters fought a medley of Greek and Roman monsters. Finally, it was the continuation of my favorite series, “Percy Jackson and the Olympians”. “Percy Jackson and the Olympians” made me think that everything was ok but, The Lost Hero and The Son of Neptune provoked this thought. Overall, this book was a pleasure to read.
