I loved The Last Olympian. It was my favorite book of the Percy Jackson series by a long shot, and was just the kind of conclusion the series needed, in my opinion.
In this review, I want to talk about the Percy Jackson series as a whole too, so at the end I’m going to share some of my final thoughts on it. Savvy?
Let’s get into it!
★ ★ ★ ★ ★
All year the half-bloods have been preparing for battle against the Titans, knowing the odds of 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 Percy Jackson and the Olympians 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.
