I won't write a long comment. You can find enough analytical reviews on the internet. I'm just here to declare my love.
Because as we all know:
YOLO- Unless you're a Greek monster.

BEST BOOK EVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! AWESOME!!!!!!!!!! Great book, every genre included it is great and I suggest it for 6 and older but I suggest for you to read the first 4. But it’s a little sad so be prepared. In my opinion it’s the BEST BOOK EVER!!!!!!!!

This is a great book I would say a little more action than the others and yet most readers are drinking for more!

Riordan's hits strike us again and i can speak for about... say everyone when i say this is Riordons hits!

The time has come. Percy Jackson is about to turn 16. And the fate of Olympus is now in his hands. Percy Jackson and the entire camp must defend the town of Manhatten and more importantly, The Empire State Building because that is where Olympus is. He must also make a choice. 3 Stars

Does anyone else scan through Percy Jackson books just for the sake of reading the titles? I sometimes do to amuse myself because I need a bit of comic relief, and I suggest people do this for fun. Also, I found the map at the front of the book very helpful, to aid me in imagining the battlefield and set-ups. I actually just reread this book for the fifth time. More drama, suspense, and action come in this final showdown between the gods/demigods and the titans. How will the battle unleash itself, upon Manhattan? Sacrifices made, secrets uncovered, and betrayals overturned will leave readers pondering about the series way after they finish reading. 5/5 Stars.

While reading “The Last Olympian”, I had so many different emotions stirring up. I was excited, interested, happy, sad, curious and the list just goes on. I was so happy to finally get my hands on the final Percy Jackson book but being the last book, I knew that this series was coming to an end. After all the suspense that built up, this book was definitely the climax with the battle between the demigods and titans. Let me tell you right now that the ending was so good. Words can’t even explain how amazing this book was. Although “The Last Olympian” was the conclusion to the series, Rick Riordan introduced some new characters and former characters returned. I was quite surprised that Rick Riordan was able to have Greek mythology included throughout the entire series but it gave an aspect to the series that made it remarkable. I would highly recommend reading the entire Percy Jackson series, especially “The Last Olympian”. 5/5 stars.

Like a miracle, a conch horn sounded from the smoky picture. The call of the ocean. The call of Poseidon.

Other: This Isnt Really A notice, But For You Hunger Games Fans out there, did you notice that Mr D's Sons names are Pollux and Castor, And (Spoilers) Castor dies? hhmmm..... I wonder If Rick Riordan is a Hunger Games fan Or Suzanne Collins Is a Percy Jackson fan.

The prophecy has come to pass, can Percy make the decision that will change the world or will he make it come crashing down

red_zebu_50 Aug 15, 2014

Percy Jackson might make a choice when turning 16. This is what the Great Prophecy says; A hero (child of the Big Three) will make a choice when turning 16. Percy Jackson, However, his mortal friend Rachel tells him, "Perseus, you are not the hero." Luke was the hero. He sacrificed himself to save the gods and Olympus from being destroyed by Kronos.

In order to try to head off Kronos' approach by sea, Percy and Beckendorf go to blow up his ship, the Princess Andromeda. However, Kronos is not caught off guard, and Beckendorf sacrifices his life to destroy the ship, while Percy dives overboard and is knocked out by Kronos' scythe when battling him on the ship. Percy is awakened by Tyson (a cyclops and Percy's half-brother). He finds that he is in his father Poseidon's underwater palace, which is under siege by the forces of the Titan Oceanus. Percy wants to stay and help fight with his father, but Poseidon sends Percy back to Camp Half-Blood. At Camp Half Blood, they learn about the mission and Silena, Beckendorf's girlfriend, is in tears. At a meeting Percy hears the Great Prophecy for the first time. Then Percy mentions that they have a spy, someone who has been informing the Titans for years, but they put it aside for now. The Ares cabin had a fight with the Apollo cabin, and is so furious that they wish not to fight in the war. Soon after arriving, Percy leaves again with Nico, son of Hades, to find out how he might stand a chance against Kronos when the time comes. After visiting Luke's mother and talking with Hestia (who is the Last Olympian), goddess of the hearth and home, Percy and Nico's aunt. Percy procures a blessing from his mother, descends into the Underworld for the second time. Here, Nico betrays Percy for information on his past, but he helps Percy with the original plan and bathes in the River Styx like Achilles and Luke before him.


This book was awesome! This book was so fascinating! Percy's big decision caught me by surprise. I very much enjoyed the books ending. i couldnt stop reading this book. This Book answered all my questions and it was very helpful. In the book it explained the spy, and to me they spy's action also surprised me in a good way. The great finght with the titan loard was one of my favorite scene in the book. Rick riordan did a very Terricif job of explaining every part of the scene and the details of all the monsters. i totally recommend this book. i would only recommend it if you read all the other books.
