The Final Book of Percy Jackson & The Olympians: The Last Olympian

I picked up the final book of the series Percy Jackson and was in awe.  Rick Riordan is an amazing writer as he finished Percy Jackson & The Olympians: The Last Olympian.  This book had humor, action, and the thrilling conclusion of the prophecy with Percy Jackson and his friends.

“All years the half-bloods have been preparing for battle against the Titans, knowing the odds of a victory are grim.  Krono’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 spectacular finish of the series the end will be determined as Percy and friends face the ultimate evil.  As the war began I found it interesting that sides of good and evil will be crossed as others will join new teams and others will show what they were born to do.  Percy will also give the future a new outlook for those of the demigods and gods.  A change that will bring new hope to those who don’t have it.

I loved how the characters all progressed and how Percy was able to find a relationship with his father to a point.  I found it interesting how his character has progressed through the books.  He is becoming a different person, a stronger person but still unsure.

Rachel will make her place within Percy’s world but not as what is thought.  Annabeth will also find what she is meant to do as the battle for good and evil takes place.  Nico will also make his appearance again in the book to help Percy.

This was a series that gets you into the lives of the characters.  I knew that I had to finish.  It is a worthy series to read if you like books about fantasy with gods and goddesses.

Percy Jackson & The Olympians: The Last Olympian is a fantastic finish to the series and even could be thought as a new beginning.

Percy Jackson & The Olympians: The Battle of The Labyrinth

Rick Riordan brings back Percy to the pages with his friends in the fourth book, Percy Jackson & The Olympians: The Battle of The Labyrinth.

“Percy Jackson isn’t expecting freshman orientation to be any fun.  But when a mysterious mortal acquaintance appears on campus, followed by demon cheerleaders, things quickly move from bad to worse.

Time is running out as war between the Olympians and the evil Titan lord Kronos draws near.  Even the safe haven of Camp Half-Blood grows more vulnerable by the minute as Krono’s army prepares to invade its once impenetrable borders.  To sotp the invasion, Percy and his demigod friends must set out on a quest through the Layrinth-a sprawling underground world with stunning surprise at every turn.”

Every time I pick up the next book by Rick Riordan I know that I will be reading an amazing story of Percy.  The scenes and characters are well rounded.  You get attached.

Percy is on the next quest with Annabeth leading the show which makes them go into the labyrinth.  The labyrinth which is a place that not many find ways out and if they do they might not be in the same shape that they went in.

I was excited that Rachel makes her second appearance in the series.  I like her there as an unusual mortal who sees more than those around.  She will be a big help when Percy and the rest will take their quest into the labyrinth.  You will see old and new friends making an appearance in the book.

Annabeth is an intriguing character as she helps Percy but she still hopes to get Luke back, which I am afraid she will find is impossible for Luke is not himself anymore.  Luke is not the half-blood that he used to be.  Kronos found the use for him and could be their downfall.

I love that Percy will also find a family.  His mom being with Paul, soon to be husband.  But also Poseidon will also make an appearance and father him the best he can.  Of course that is not always possible for the gods.

The trip to the labyrinth will be a challenge for all those who enter.

I was astonished with the fourth installment of Percy Jackson.  There was wit, humor, adventure, saddness, destruction and hope all wrapped up in this book.  Percy Jackson & The Olympians: The Battle of The Labyrinth is just another fantastic book in this creative series.

Percy Jackson & The Olympians: The Titan’s Curse

“When Percy Jackson receives an urgent distress call from his friend Grover, he immediately prepares for battle.  He knows he’ll need his powerful demigod allies at his side: his trusty bronze sword, Riptide; and …a ride from his mom.

The demigods race to the rescue to find that Grover has made an important discovery: two new powerful half-bloods, whose parentage is unknown.  But that’s not all that awaits them.  The Titan lord, Kronos, has set up a devious trap, and the young heroes have just fallen prey.”

With each book that I read of Rick Riordan’s series with Percy Jackson it gets more interesting, intriguing and even funny.  I am blown away with each book of this series.

Rick Riordan’s third book of Percy Jackson’s series is Percy Jackson & The Olympians: The Titan’s Curse, I loved.   I like the fact that each book Percy is getting that much closer to the age of sixteen when the prophecy will take place but who will that really be?  Percy is not the only hot ticket in town now.  Thalia, Zeus daughter was brought back and is very close to sixteen but now two more confidantes will be coming forward and will be a surprise to all.

I find it frustrating with the character of Luke.  You know that he has turned but secretly you want him to be really helping Percy and his friends but alas I do not think that is so.  Luke really is part of the villains and wants his revenge which he will be getting as Kronos becomes stronger.

I like the new character of Rachel who is a mortal but she can see through the mist.  She is not a main character but perhaps she will make herself known in the next book.

Poseidon is making himself known little by little which is making Percy feel a little better but he has his friends and his brother.  Percy’s mom is also dating a teacher who just might be good for her.

Artemis and Apollo will make themselves known as one will get tangled up in with the villains.  The huntresses who are only loyal to Artemis will get involved to find their priestess.

Percy Jackson & The Olympians: The Titan’s Curse is nothing but action packed with tragedy as those who are close will meet their ends, and questions will be answered.
