The Last Olympian by Rick Riordan

The Last OlympianRiordan’s final, epic book is finally out. At last we will discover what will happen to Percy, the Greek Gods, and whether the prophecy will come true. Riordan has taken us on a roller coaster through the previous four books in the series, each more interesting than the last.

In Percy’s final battle, he must beat Kronos and save the Greek Gods. While the other books have been great, this book was phenomenal. Riordan keeps you on the edge of your seat til the very end. Old friends reappear, but many are lost to the battle. This book is as epic as the Lord of the Rings Trilogy or even Harry Potter. ( I know I can’t believe I just said that either). Percy is a strong character that is very likable. As the son of a Greek God, he comes off as both strong and vulnerable. You can really see how far he has come since the Lightning Thief.

While everything does not turn out as expected, it made me feel satisfied. Although it looks like Riordan might be angling for another series.

WARNING: You should not start reading this at night if you want to go to bed at a reasonable hour. Plan to get up early on a Saturday and spend a nice morning reading instead.
