Short Takes: The Son of Neptune

By Christian Price, Contributor, US Daily Review.

The book, The Son of Neptune, by Rick Riodran, has its roots in Greek and Roman mythology.  It takes place in Alaska, Canada, and California.  It is narrated by three people.  This book is filled to the brim with magic, myth, and monsters.  It is a great book for teenagers.  If you enjoy books with just a little suspense, but not much; and a whole lot of fantasy, this is the book for you.  I would give it more than 4 stars (out of five).  It also has a glossary if you don’t understand a word or phrase.  It has a bunch of twist and turns.  If you end up loving this book, its sequel, The Mark of Athena, is coming out in the fall of 2012.  If you have read this book (or ones like it), I would love your comments!

Rating: 4.5 (out of 5) stars

Length: 521 pages

Genre: Greek and Roman Mythology
