    Let’s go Percy, let’s go! Let’s go Percy, let’s go! Let’s go--, hello Percy! Ah, The Son of Neptune, I’ve been waiting… The Son of Neptune is the second novel in the Heroes of Olympus series. I’ve read (and enjoyed) the first book, The Lost Hero. (By the way, my review of The Lost Hero is up and running on DogoBooks. Go check it out!) But, we are here to discuss the second novel, so The Lost Hero, get lost again. ***CHARACTERS*** The three main characters in the book are Percy, Frank, and Hazel. One is a kid who forgot his memory, second is a kid who *SPOILER* can turn into animals, and lastly is a girl who *SPOILER* came back from the dead. Wondering how they are best friends? Trust me, I don’t know either. But I love them all the same. PERCY- Was a character that I felt bad for. Imagine forgetting who you are and left without a clue for (I think) eight to nine months. But Percy was a well-written character. He made me laugh and cry the whole time… FRANK- Was hilarious! Frank just summed up my entire life with his clumsiness. He is so funny and sweet, and a really great character. His backstory is so interesting and sad that I couldn’t put done the book with Frank’s chapter. HAZEL- Was so sweet. Her life is so interesting. Hazel was a fragile character deep inside. She had secrets and memories that made her happy. She held on to them even though she lived a horrible (past) life. Oh! I was really happy when *SPOILER* Thanatos (or Pluto) let her live. Thank god(s) that she was allowed to proceed to her new life. That made me very relaxed. ***SETTING*** Camp Jupiter was a really interesting place. Not only did I have to adjust from Camp Half-Blood to Camp Jupiter, but I had to also look up different gods and goddesses that were new to me in Roman form. In conclusion, I loved this book. It was fast paced with action and plot-twists that I couldn’t just stop reading. Five stars from me!

      I want to read it because I've read all of the Percy Jackson Series, The Apollo Series, The Percy Jackson's Greek Gods and heroes, and all the other stuff Riordan wrote. I've heard that the heroes of Olympus Series are popular, and I've read the first book. It was super cool!

        Now this is where Percy Jackson comes in as Jason Grace vice versa😂 Going to a Roman camp (shhh) and this is where Percy's sass comes in! 😂 I love Greek mythology which has lead me to reading all of Rick Riordan's books and new ones coming up as well! It's so awsome how it has lead to the beginning of a new quest that literally completes the whole Heroes Of Olympus series! 😍🤓

            The book Son of Neptune is the second book of the series Heroes of Olympus, written by Rick Riordan, during the last book; “The Lost Hero” Percy lost his memories. He doesn’t remember anything, but whenever people call the name Annabeth it rings a bell in his head.. Read as Percy slowly regain his memories and attempt to challenge the Prophecy of Seven. If he fail not only their camp would be destroyed but the whole world would be in danger. I recommend this book to anyone from grade 6 or above that like adventure and mythology book.

                I really liked the end because it was action packed and they fought the giant. And it also helped me figure out why Jason was at camp half blood. Percy and Jason got switched at camps!!!
