The Last Olympian (Percy Jackson and the Olympians #5) by Rick Riordan
All year the half-bloods have been preparing for battle against the Titans, knowing the odds of a victory are grim. Kronos’s army is stronger than ever, and with every god and half-blood he recruits, the evil Titan’s power only grows.
While the Olympians struggle to contain the rampaging monster Typhon, Kronos begins his advance on New York City, where Mount Olympus stands virtually unguarded. Now it’s up to Percy Jackson and an army of young demigods to stop the Lord of Time.
In this momentous final book in the New York Times best-selling series, the long-awaited prophecy surrounding Percy’s sixteenth birthday unfolds. And as the battle for Western civilization rages on the streets of Manhattan, Percy faces a terrifying suspicion that he may be fighting against his own fate.
This was a good book to end this epic series with. I have loved it with every page and I am sad to see it gone and done with. I really liked all of the characters and their comebacks and snarky remarks were hilarious. But this book also has a serious note because now everything is boiling down to the final showdown between Percy and Kronos, Lord of Time. After reading all five books, you also get to know the characters really well and you like them or hate them accordingly. I think that after everything, Hermes was my favourite Greek god, because he is just awesome. I don't have anything bad to say about this book, because I enjoyed every single second of reading it. I really recommend this series to anyone who enjoys adventure, mythological and magical stories.
I give this book 5 out of 5 stars!
