Title: The Last Olympian
Author: Rick Riordan
Reveiw by: the summary on the book flap and thoughts by Kiki
I spent almost all night, and most of my morning finishing this! yes!
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 her 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 army of young demigods to stop the Lord of Time. ( The barrier around Manhattan leaves Percy and 40 other demigods on their own with occasional help.)
In this momentous final book in the New York Times best-stelling series, the long-awaited prophecy surrounding Percy's sixteenth birtday unfolds. And as the battle for Western civilization rages of the streets of Manhattan, Percy faces a terrifying suspicion that he may be fighting against his own fate.
my thoughts: This is the BEST book in the Olmypians series. If you havent' read this book, i advise you NOT to read the following......................
I love how Percy organizes a war party with 40 demingods, the Hunters, and a few other sources, protecting Manhattan. I mean, he's only 16 and you have to get that sense of pride for Percy even though he's a fictional character. I love reading wars, but this one is the best. Every author who creates adventure stories (Almost every) always kills off 'important' characters, and i can almost feel that feeling, that sad gripping feeling, whenever someone dies.
Rick Riordan has a GREAT sense of humor, even in the midst of a terribly dangerous, scary, and dramatic moment, Riordan manages to lighten the mood with humor. I LOVE this book!
