Yes, I’m a fan of Rick Riordan. Yes, I love YA novels and The Son of Neptune is no different. They are entertaining and I like to read them. Reading my short Goodreads review of this book reminds me of how much I love these novels. Lots of times I will listen to them on audio. They are fantastic and I love to be reminded of how much I enjoy them and that I need to get back to reading the series again. I believe this is as far as I am in this series. One book a year from the series is I guess what I average.
The last four chapters of this book are riveting and some truly great action-adventure writing. I still don’t know if this series is as strong as the first, but it is very good reading!
The Lost Hero is the first book in a series from Rick Riordan. It is a spin-off series from the original Percy Jackson and The Olympian series. There are 5 books in the series. This book reads very much like the books in the Percy Jackson series and for me, this is a very good thing. I liked that series a lot. A lot of action all the time and it is funny as well. This book was a great introduction to a new series. We meet all new heroes but still get to check-in with some of our favorites from the Percy Jackson series. Riordan makes some great calls in writing this new series. I’m hooked.
