The Final Book in the Series is the Best One Yet,
This review is from: Percy Jackson and the Last Olympian (Paperback)
It's a week before Percy Jackson's sixteenth birthday; the day that he will fulfill a prophecy he has only heard part of. But Percy has other things on his mind. The Titans are attacking all over the globe. His father, Poseidon, is fighting a giant monster under the sea. The majority of the other gods are fighting in the middle of the country, leaving Mount Olympus undefended.
Somehow, Percy and the other half-bloods must find a way to protect the seat of the gods' power or civilization as we know it will unravel. Nico has a plan, but it seems dangerous. Should Percy follow it? Will they stand a chance even if Percy goes through with it?
While the other books in the series have been fun, I've felt they were also formulaic. That's definitely not the case here. The action starts early and keeps going the entire way through the book. I always had a hard time putting it down. The characters are well developed as well. I was very sad to say goodbye to them. So much that we have seen before comes into play here that it feels like a great conclusion.
If you've been enjoying this series, I can't recommend this book highly enough. If you haven't discovered these books yet, I recommend you start with the first one so you can full appreciate what happens here.
