Rick Riordan is an American author who is well known for his popular series about a kid named Percy Jackson. Riordan's new series named Heroes of Olympus is a 5 book series that includes The Son of Neptune, and continues on with the character Percy Jackson, and at the same time throwing new characters into the mix.
My opinion for this book is overall very good. I believe that it is the best book out of the entire series so far, and believe that the rest of the books in this series will continue to get better. Although I think that there wasn't exactly too many battles and other mini conflicts in this book compared to some of Riordan's other books, I do like how old characters like Annabeth were brought back into the new series from the old series.

The message I believe that the author Rick Riordan is trying to give is o never give up. I believe that this is the message because even though the main characters have to go through many hardships they always stay on task and never back down.
