There always something about Rick Riordan's books that sucks you in and doesn't let go. This is not an exception despite how long it took me to finish it. I wanted to savor the excitement, the extremely cheesy humor, jokes and the signature simple descriptions provided. Son of Neptune, in a sense, was thrilling and so childishly fun to read. There's something for everyone in here and I definitely derived a lot of fun.
The new characters are just as dorky, some more so, and as witty as the ones in The Lost Hero. The plot line and skill it's executed with matches the interest level from the previous books. I'll be sure to read the rest of Riordan's books.
