Heroes of Olympus: The Son of Neptune
by Rick Riordan

Summary

When Percy Jackson wakes up all he can remember is his name, age, and some girl named Annabeth.  He knows he's a demi-god and needs to head to camp.  Camp Jupiter.  Once there he meets Hazel, a girl with strange abilities and a very secretive side, as well as Frank, a huge power house of untapped abilities with a face like a baby's.  The three are quickly sent on a quest to the north, a land out of the gods' influence, but what will they find there?  Why can't Percy remember anything?  And why does everyone call him the Greek?

Review

I'm going to go out on a limb here and state for the record that Heroes of Olympus is looking to be even more epic than Percy Jackson was.  There is so much going on with these characters and I'm loving the blending of Greek and Roman mythology.  Hopefully in the third installment we'll see these two camps get together and just watch the sparks fly!  If you've been hesitant to pick up the series for fear it'll tarnish the original Percy Jackson series, you're missing out, my friend.
