The Last Olympian

(Percy Jackson and the Olympians #5)

Rick Riordan

My rating:

5 star

Goodreads summary:

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 book is the last in this series but no need to despair because it’s followed by the Heroes of Olympus series. And seeing how this book ended I am so looking forward to reading those books. I can barely wait, but I feel that I have to because I was just binge-reading this series and I’m way behind on reading anything else. For me this book was a great conclusion to a great series. It was just an epic finale to the whole storyline and it really brought some closure while also bringing on a new mystery for the upcoming series.

In general this was just a book in which we get to see the final showdown between Percy Jackson and his Half-blood allies, and Kronos and his followers. Once again it just shows how Rick Riordan can balance a lot of things in one book. There were a lot of action scenes, obviously, but there was also some emotional stuff going on, and there was character building and humor. I know that I’m just repeating this in pretty much every review of the books in this series, but it just keeps surprising me how true it is in every single book.

I’ll just leave it at this because I just don’t have anything else to say about these books, except that you should just go and read them. Now, please!
