Saturday Snatch: The Son of Neptune by Rick Riordan

    The Son of Neptune is the second book in a New York Times bestselling series that takes places after the Percy Jackson series ends. Written by Rick Riordan, it features old characters in addition to a whole new cast!
        I've read The Lost Hero, the first book, and absolutely loved it! I might even say I enjoyed it more than the Percy Jackson series!

 To give you some background-
Cover Blurb for The Lost Hero:
          Jason has a problem. He doesn’t remember anything before waking up on a school bus holding hands with a girl. Apparently she’s his girlfriend Piper, his best friend is a kid named Leo, and they’re all students in the Wilderness School, a boarding school for “bad kids.” What he did to end up here, Jason has no idea—except that everything seems very wrong.

          Piper has a secret. Her father has been missing for three days, and her vivid nightmares reveal that he’s in terrible danger. Now her boyfriend doesn’t recognize her, and when a freak storm and strange creatures attack during a school field trip, she, Jason, and Leo are whisked away to someplace called Camp Half-Blood. What is going on?

          Leo has a way with tools. His new cabin at Camp Half-Blood is filled with them. Seriously, the place beats Wilderness School hands down, with its weapons training, monsters, and fine-looking girls. What’s troubling is the curse everyone keeps talking about, and that a camper’s gone missing. Weirdest of all, his bunkmates insist they are all—including Leo—related to a god.

     Today's excerpt is very short, but I hope you enjoy!

  1. I haven't read The Lost Hero or this one, but it really does sound like something I'd enjoy so will be sure to add it to my TBR list! :D

  2. I really need to start reading this series! I became aware of this series when the movie came out. I really enjoyed the movie so I will definitely be reading this series, soon I hope. Another series to put in my TBR list...:)
