The Son of Neptune Summary
The Son of Neptune is the second novel in Rick Riordan’s The Heroes of Olympus series. Released in 2011, this novel continues the story begun in The Lost Hero, following Percy Jackson as he stumbles into the Roman demigod camp, Camp Jupiter, after losing his memory and eight months of his life. The Son of Neptune!
At the camp, Percy meets Hazel, daughter of Pluto, and Frank, son of Mars. Together, Percy, Hazel, and Frank are charged with a quest to free the god of death, Thanatos, from captivity to allow death to send souls to the underworld once more. Along the way, Percy regains his memory, Hazel achieves redemption for her mistakes, and Frank discovers the truth about his family legacy. The Son of Neptune!
Percy is chased into Camp Jupiter by two gorgons that will not stay dead no matter how many times he kills them. Percy knows something is wrong, but he cannot say what it is, because he has lost his memory.
All he knows about himself is his name and that he has a girlfriend named Annabeth. The goddess Juno tells him he will suffer the worst pain and misery of his life if he chooses to follow the path he is currently on, but Percy instinctively knows he has no other choice.
Percy befriends two students at Camp Jupiter named Hazel and Frank. Hazel is the daughter of Pluto who was rescued from the Underworld by her brother, Nico di Angelo. Frank does not know who his father is, but after his mother’s recent death in Afghanistan, his grandmother sent him to live at the camp.
Before he left, she told him about a visit from Juno when he was a baby where the goddess revealed that once a specific piece of firewood burns completely, Frank will die. His grandmother gave him the piece of firewood and told him to learn to embrace not only his father’s legacy, but his family’s as well.
After Frank surprises the entire camp by leading the Fifth Cohort to victory during war games, Mars visits Camp Jupiter. Mars tells Frank that he is his father and instructs him to pick two other campers and travel to Alaska, the land beyond the gods.
Frank and his team are to rescue the god Thanatos from the goddess Gaea’s son, the giant Alcyoneus. Mars tells them that monsters are rising from the Underworld at the behest of Gaea and if Thanatos is a prisoner of Alcyoneus, no one will remain dead. The Son of Neptune!
Frank chooses Percy and Hazel to travel to Alaska with him. They have only four days to arrive at their destination and rescue Thanatos before another of Gaea’s sons, the giant Polybotes, arrives at Camp Jupiter to battle the camp.
