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.
