BOOK REVIEW: The Son of Neptune: The Heroes of Olympus, Book Two UNABRIDGED by Rick Riordan

Book Review The Son of Neptune The Heroes of Olympus Book Two Rick Riordan

The Son of Neptune

"One heck of an addictive adventure!"

Overall
Performance
Story

Where does The Son of Neptune rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

It's in the top few over the past few months. Every last minute of it has been addictive. I chose this book for its fantasy genre and length originally. I continued onto the second book in the series (this one) because the first one was so fantastic.

Now I'm going to have to just keep going. I adore this series. It's had me enthralled with interest, adventure and upbeat spirits. The reader of the book can do all kinds of voices which make you really feel like you are listening to and befriending each character one at a time, which is good because this book has as many characters as your real life has day-to-day friends.

Every moment I can't wait to hear what is happening next, makes me wish the books where longer. Even better is that this book mixes fantasy with mystical and religious history. So you are literally getting to old world religion, history and war tactics step by step as the book moves forward. You can hear and imagine seeing, tasting and smelling what the monsters and Gods would have been like.

If I haven't convinced you, I don't know what will. If you love fantasy adventure like lord of the rings or love stories like fifty shades of gray or history fantasy like the Michael Scott series or the adventures of Terry Goodkind in the Wizards first rule then this book is for you (obviously start with book one)
