All year the half-bloods have been preparing for battle against the Titans, knowing the odds of 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 Percy Jackson and the Olympians 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 final book in the Percy Jackson series was everything I wanted and more. Though I wasn’t completely satisfied with the ending, I’m alright with it because I know there are more books with the characters I’ve come to love so much.
My feelings on Percy haven’t changed. I still admire and adore him. His bravery is like no other. The same goes for Annabeth. I adore her so much. She’s clever and loyal. She never backs down from a fight. I’m so happy their relationship finally developed further and it’s not a minute too soon. Grover has grown so much and I love that too. He’s fulfilled his dreams and continues to work hard and help as much as he can. I love the whole cast. I loved seeing them all work together and save the world.
I cannot say enough how much I really enjoy the way Riordan brings the mythology alive and into the modern world. I think he does it so well. He gives these characters life and history and I enjoy reading about them so much.
Overall, I was happy with this final book. I didn’t love the ending because it didn’t really give closure. It left kind of open ended as if there was just going to be the next book in the series. I know there is more books following these characters, but I thought there would be a little bit more closure of the series. I still enjoyed reading it. I’m so glad I finally managed to read this series.
Keep on reading lovelies, Amanda.
