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 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.

    Wow that was a great ending to this very fantastical series! I cannot wait to go into more detail in my series review which will be out probably next week. I'll be covering my opinions on all 5 books and then my overall opinion of the series. I am so happy I FINALLY read PJO! This was a "dam" good series (lol get it? "Dam")

    I'm a little sad actually because I didn't want to say goodbye to our hero, the one and only Percy Jackson. From the beginning we can already see things are going to move quickly. Kronos has a lot of things up his sleeve and won't let Percy and the other demigods have a break. The book pretty much starts off with a bang and doesn't slow down from there. Annabeth and Percy's relationship is kind of strained and Rachel showing up isn't helping matters.

The book pretty much starts off with a bang and doesn't slow down from there. Annabeth and Percy's relationship is kind of strained and Rachel showing up isn't helping matters. I have to say all the books have a lot of action, but this one takes the prize. They have to make a movie of this one, it would be insanely cool. We finally get to see how the prophecy plays out, Luke's past, and many other secrets that come to light. One of things I always appreciated about the series is that we see things from all angles. We can get why some of the demigods would side with Kronos and how nobody is free from blame. Everybody and I mean everybody and their brother comes back in this book. It was fun to see some old faces and some unexpected heroes emerge. I can't pick a favorite book of the series but if forced to give an answer this one would be it. Filled with action, tough choices, betrayals, and heart, you can't beat that. The book ends with a new prophecy for the The Lost Hero. I can't see how any series could top this one, but I will be reading it of course. Towards the last part I seriously was getting kind of misty-eyed to see it all end but it was so good. So good.

But these heroes aren’t going to stop until they give it their all and believe me, it’s SO INCREIDLBY EXCITING! I listened to the audiobook and Jesse Bernstein’s voice is EXACTLY how I imagined Percy. 10/10 Also, the sass levels on every single character is notable. I am thoroughly impressed, Uncle Rick. Minor Spoilers Ahead not like anyone cares I mean basically EVERYONE has read this Me being #percabeth trash is no news to anyone, but I’ve stumbled upon a goldmine of fanart and I’m very happy here plz don’t take me away from my happiness. Wanna know what caused my death? THIS SCENE: AND THIS And that ending, good Lord, that was the best, most cutest, fitting ending ever. My heart is so content. This was me every #Percabeth scene (I know, it’s getting ridiculous): Okay, enough from me, I’m just rambling now. “It's hard to enjoy practical jokes when your whole life feels like one.” 4.5 stars!!

    This is the 5th Percy Jackson book I've read to my daughter Celyn.

The concluding (well - we could go to book 4.5 & 5.5) volume of the Percy Jackson series continues in the same vein as the previous volumes, though with an added sense of danger and sadness as named/known campers are killed and even PJ himself may be up for the chop. We've followed Percy from a lad of 11-ish to his 16th birthday, so girlfriends are up for debate too and both Rachel and Annabeth are in the frame. The Greek pantheon are a great choice for these sort of books as even in the oldest of writings there's very little about them that's godly except for their power. Their pettiness and bickering provide endless opportunities for conflict and plotting even without the resurgence of their titanic forebears. The final battle is a colossal affair that occupies most of the book. The variety of monsters and weapons keep the thing from getting repetitive and I had a good time reading it. The ending is satisfying with elements of tragedy mixed into the victory. Job well done. The only question now is what to read next? Join my 3-emails-a-year newsletter #prizes ..

    THE MINI REVIEW IS POSTED So actually I have finished reading this book a week ago but I just have the time to write the review today ( okay, I'm lying, I was just being lazy hahaha 😂 ) I read this book while I was in reading slump and IT WAS THE WORST READING SLUMP I HAVE EVER BEEN IN. IT LAST FOR A FEW WEEKS. I swear those days when I was in reading slump, I felt hollow, empty and I didn't know what to do and I was frustrated a bit for not being able to read like I usually did and thank God, THE MINI REVIEW IS POSTED So actually I have finished reading this book a week ago but I just have the time to write the review today ( okay, I'm lying, I was just being lazy hahaha 😂 ) I read this book while I was in reading slump and IT WAS THE WORST READING SLUMP I HAVE EVER BEEN IN. IT LAST FOR A FEW WEEKS. I swear those days when I was in reading slump, I felt hollow, empty and I didn't know what to do and I was frustrated a bit for not being able to read like I usually did and thank God, this book was the book which got me out of my slump. When I read this book, I didn't feel excited or surprised or anything even when I didn't expect something to happen but it wasn't a bad read either. It was pretty fun but I honestly didn't feel anything and LET'S BLAME THAT TO THE READING SLUMP. Reading slump sucks! This series isn't my favorite but and my favorite book in this series is just the first book because it was so amazing and I loved it but the next books were just okay. Honestly, I continued reading this series because of the writing style. It was so good and hilarious! I loved it. Overall, I quite enjoyed reading this book even though I didn't feel any kind of emotions while reading it and this book got me out of my slump, so YAY! Thank you for reading and liking this review. I appreciate it so much, guys! ❤️ ••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• REVIEW TO COME TOMORROW. •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• *sighs* I'm in reading slump and I seriously need a book that can help me to get out of my reading slump. I want to be able to enjoy reading again 😭😭hopefully, I'll enjoy reading it.

    My favorite of the series for sure! This is a great conclusion to the story, and definitely a book worth the build up of the rest of the series. It is so much fun to see how far our characters have come, and how big their fight really is. Absolutely fantastic. (upping my previous rating of four stars to five stars because I just enjoyed so many parts of this book!)

I just had a number of problems with this particular entry to the series that I couldn't overlook and plan to discuss in depth.

See this review and more like it on www.bookbastion.net! _________ Before you all start throwing lightning bolts at me, please keep in mind that in my book, a 3 star review is still a positive one! I just had a number of problems with this particular entry to the series that I couldn't overlook and plan to discuss in depth. Don't get me wrong, The Last Olympian is definitely an entertaining spectacle from start to finish. The sense of action was on point, basically from page one until the very end. Rick Riordan certainly knows how to capture the audience's attention with those chapter titles and the wild fight scenes dispersed throughout the story. Riordan also doesn't disappoint in his inclusion of all sorts of mythological creatures, which are my favorite aspect of this series. This book was sort of unusual in that when it starts the adventure and preparation for Kronos' attack on Olympus is already ongoing, so there's no usual retun to Camp Half Blood at the start, or any of the small events that go along with the time Percy usually spends there. In a way I missed it, but in another I actually somewhat liked having no down time. Having the book jump straight into the chaos of war was a necessary choice for the final installment. The book even ends with a great deal of promise, which has made me sufficiently hyped to start Heroes of Olympus soon! But, I had some problems with it. Particularly the resolution of storylines, and the plot armor afforded to the main characters. First of all as much as I love all of these characters, I was a bit perturbed by how easily anyone important seemed to avoid lasting harm. Not that I want to see all my babies in danger, but for the final book in the series you'd think the stakes would be raised a bit. Percy in particular gains some pretty unbelievable plot armor. I know Riordan was attempting to work in a bit more mythology here, but making Percy nearly impervious to harm in the 11th hour was a bit of a danger killer.  Another thing that I take slight issue with is the scope and emotion included in the prose; More specifically, how it never seems to grow. I hate to compare Middle Grade series to Harry Potter, but in my opinion, that's the series that understood its audience was growing along with the books and adjusted accordingly. The tone of this series remains pretty steadfast from book 1 to book 5. It's super funny, and full of action, but I had difficulty connecting with the characters emotionally, especially in this book. They seemed to dance around each other and saying what they meant in this book quite a lot, meaning certain subplots took much longer than they needed to to get resolved. Speaking of subplots: There was an awful lot of half-started, promptly-abandoned storylines here. Rick Riordan did well tying up the main prophecy arc, but there are some brand new plot lines thrown in as well about some of the minor characters that seem to have been half-finished or not handled with much grace. Frankly, I was hoping for a lot more from the characters of Rachel and Nico in particular. I understand that the next series has some of these characters in a reoccurring fashion, so hopefully they get a bit more development there. Oh, and what was up with the Last Olympian, who is in this book for all of like 15 pages? Considering the book is named after her, I expected more there as well.  Ultimately, I'm still really glad I read this series! I enjoyed every single book, and though I wasn't particularly wowed by the ending, I can't wait to jump into Heroes of Olympus next!   ★★★ = 3 stars out of 5! _________ Percy Jackson Reviews: The Lightning Thief ★★★★★ The Sea of Monsters: ★★★★✯ The Titan's Curse: ★★★★ The Battle of the Labyrinth: ★★★★✯ The Last Olympian: RTC

    OKAY I FINISHED READING PJO FOR THE FIRST TIME I FEEL SO ACCOMPLISHED I mean this is soo many people's favourite series and I'd never read it but now I have ! I feel like a true reader ! Anyway, I got to see my mans Percy Jackson go from a scared 12 year old who wouldn't breathe in Ares direction for fear of pissing him off to a 16 year old boy who pretty much told all the gods to go fuck themselves because they're disrespectful trash and I'm living for it “She looked at me, like she was drinking OKAY I FINISHED READING PJO FOR THE FIRST TIME I FEEL SO ACCOMPLISHED I mean this is soo many people's favourite series and I'd never read it but now I have ! I feel like a true reader ! Anyway, I got to see my mans Percy Jackson go from a scared 12 year old who wouldn't breathe in Ares direction for fear of pissing him off to a 16 year old boy who pretty much told all the gods to go fuck themselves because they're disrespectful trash and I'm living for it “She looked at me, like she was drinking in the fact that I was still here. And I realized I was doing the same thing. The world was collapsing, and the only thing that really mattered to me was that she was alive.” Okay so this was definitely my favourite of the series I loved how everything came together and all the character development and getting to see so many gods in one book. It was super fun and full of action plus my heart was FULFILLED with that Percabeth content. I love the characters in this series so much. That is mostly what kept me so invested in finishing this series 🌲 Percy Jackson is the sweetest, funniest and most precious bean. I love him. He kind of reminds me of Harry Potter and I do love Harry Potter. He's also super impulsive and doesn't think things through, but I liked how he developed as a character around that. Anyway, he is so endearing and I love him. 🌲 Annabeth Chase could punch me in the face and rob my home and I would thank her. I LOVE HER. What a wise, badass legend. Deserves the world. She did the MOST for the camp and I just love her so much. 🌲 Grover Underwood absolutely hilarious and also so sweet. I loved his friendship with Percy and what happened to him at the end. He's so loyal and an absolute dork and also deserves the world. 🌲 Luke Castellan HE HURTS MEEE. I was surprised at how much this book broke my heart in regards to Luke. He deserved better but I loved how his story ends and I was so surprised in how invested I ended up in him considering he's the villain throughout the series 🌲 Rachael Elizabeth Dare she was involved in this more than I expected but I liked it! I really liked her character but hate how Riordan tried to assassinate it by putting her in that weird love triangle. I am glad her and Annabeth made up they deserve to be best friends not enemies 🌲 Nico di Angelo I LOVE MY SON. An Iconic Legend. I am so excited that Heroes of Olympus follows him more because I literally love him so much. “It's hard to enjoy practical jokes when your whole life feels like one.” okay but that ROMANCE I am SO GLAD that finally happened. Half the reason I finally read this series was because I wanted to be invested in this romance everyone loves and I surely am. I am so glad at how things worked out for them and the slow burn romance really gave me life. What a Blessing. I just wish it hadn't been hindered by the whole love triangle things, it was annoying, especially since it was boring to make Annabeth hate Rachael when they could have been friends. I also really liked how everything isn't as it seems the entire prophecy, the spy, and the end. I was SHOOK by some of the plot twists and how things turned out which was so surprising! I thought I would guess everything that happens but I did not. I loved the amount of backstory we get in this especially about Luke's past and the time he, Annabeth and Thalia spent together. It definitely helped to develop Luke as a character and create so much sympathy and depth around him. But on that, I didn't like the way Luke's mum was talked about. the implication she was a terrible mother because she was mentally unwell was ... messy there are lots of really good parents who are mentally ill! On that, one of the things I didn't like about this was some of the ableism and how heteronormative it is. I know that Riordan makes his series more diverse going forward but it still annoyed me here. “I found myself staring at her, which was stupid since I'd seen her a billion times. Still, she seemed so much more mature. It was kind of intimidating. I mean, sure, she'd always been cute, but she was starting to be seriously beautiful.” I am really glad I finally finished this series! I kind of wish I had read it when I was younger as I think I would have really loved it but it was still fun to read as an adult. The characters really took my heart and these books went by so fast because they were so entertaining. I will definitely move onto Heroes of Olympus because I want to know what happens to my boy Nico.

    REASONS WHY PERCY JACKSON IS THE ANSWER TO ALL YOUR PROBLEMS (or a reading slump): ● It’s the perfect blend of puns and humour. ● Despite the overwhelming situations and terrifying plot, it never fails in what intended to deliver: a lighthearted read with loveable characters. ● ANNABETH FREAKING CHASE ● There are satyrs, centaurs, demigods, root beer, deaths and pizzas. ● The chapter titles are the best things you’ve ever read (I Buy Some New Friends; I Sit On The Hot Seat; My Parents Go Commando) ● REASONS WHY PERCY JACKSON IS THE ANSWER TO ALL YOUR PROBLEMS (or a reading slump): ● It’s the perfect blend of puns and humour. ● Despite the overwhelming situations and terrifying plot, it never fails in what intended to deliver: a lighthearted read with loveable characters. ● ANNABETH FREAKING CHASE ● There are satyrs, centaurs, demigods, root beer, deaths and pizzas. ● The chapter titles are the best things you’ve ever read (I Buy Some New Friends; I Sit On The Hot Seat; My Parents Go Commando) ● So. Much. Drama. ● There’s betrayal, there are prophecies, and there are sword fights. And then, there’s underwater kissing. ● Mighty age old gods reduced to a variety of food (I counted there wasn’t a single like Demeter said that didn’t involve the words cereal, or wheat.) ● GODLY AMOUNTS OF AWESOME. ● Thalia Grace. ● Thought provoking quotes slipped in the narrative: “With great power... comes great need to take a nap. Wake me up later.” ● Nico Di Angelo, the precious snowflake I will protect forever. ● The promise that everything will be okay. GODS OF OLYMPUS, I NEEDED THAT. I KNEW SOME RICK WOULD CHEER ME UP. I am forever trash for this series. Honestly, reading this makes me feel like it's 2011 all over again. Now that's a nice thought. - - - - - - - - - - I'm in the biggest reading slump of this century (or, you know, month, whatever) so I'm hoping a little Percabeth will put me right on track. And, you know - I wouldn't mind a little Nico (I LOVE THAT GUY) (Solangelo, anyone?) Dammit, I'm already getting nostalgic. IF THIS FAILS (I've started and put down 5 books this last week) I SWEAR TO GODS, I'M OUTTA HERE. I'm just here for some fluff, okay? Maybe I should've started HoO. A little Leo Valdez can't hurt, can it? Luke, I'm coming for you.

    I finished this with a smile. After finishing The Battle of the Labyrinth I had no doubt that I would love the last one. Why specifically I knew this, I have no idea. But I was right and I'm happy when I'm right. I was surprised that most of the book is set in New York City but it actually makes sense since Mount Olympus is above the Empire State Building. I liked this book so much for the same reasons that I liked the other books. It was so funny. The part with the peanut butter had me laughing I finished this with a smile.

Percy, Annabeth, Grover and Tyson are so sweet. However, don't expect a whole lot of mushy stuff it's mostly action and action. This one has the most of the series. Compared to the other Percy Jackson books this one was a bit less chipper because of all the problems but Percy takes it in stride for the most part. It is in no way a downer book. It's so good to finally know everything, and Percy is a lot smarter. After finishing the book I thought of how great Percy is, hands down the best demigod. Hercules who? Riordan is such a sly author too. He put in another prophecy in the end for another series. So now we just have to see how that might turn out. Okay so maybe you don't have to know but I want to.

    WOW JUST WOW. Easily my favorite book in the series! It wrapped up this series perfectly and gave hints to what would happen in the Heroes of Olympus series! I'm definitely a little in love with Percy now and have a total girl crush on Annabeth and those last couple of pages killed me (in a good way). I'm so glad I finished this series and I can't wait to start the Heroes of Olympus next year!

One day I was very busy, couldn't get enough time to read. I started this book two days ago and this was soo much full of action! Literally, this book is almost full action!

I started this book two days ago and this was soo much full of action! Literally, this book is almost full action! You wouldn't get the chance to put it down once you started it. Olympus is threatened by Kronos' attack. Gods can't protect it as they are threatened by the most dangerous monster of all time, Typhon. So Percy and his camp-mates try to protect Olympus while the gods are busy in fighting with Typhon. => This book was dark. There was also humor but still it felt dark. => Percy was still amazing! I loved him. His plan to fight Kronos was very frighteningly interesting. He took the bath in the Styx and became invulnerable...almost. => Percy's wish in the end was great. I wanted that. I hope gods wouldn't mess with that in next series. =>Rachel has become the Oracle. That was strange. Couldn't see that coming. I think it was okay but not great. => ENDING! Am I supposed to be satisfied by this?! I don't think so. We have just got another great prophecy and it sounds sooo great. I will must start the next series in a day or two but not now. I want to read some light stuff before starting the series. Overall, I loved this series. I can't tell you which book is my favourite in the series. Because for me every book was pretty much enjoyable in its own way at the time of reading. August 1, 2017

    “With great power... comes great need to take a nap. Wake me up later.” I was satisfied by the ending of this series. It's one hell of a fight when Percy coping with his alliance has prepared for the fight destined to take place in The Last Olympian. The fight is incredibly turbulent and makes this book intruguing from the start. There are many things I've longed for since book one: drama, adrenaline-pumping scenes, and NICO ! Frankly, The Last Olympian is tremendously different from the others “With great power... comes great need to take a nap. Wake me up later.” I was satisfied by the ending of this series.

Frankly, The Last Olympian is tremendously different from the others. The vibes keep this book fresh and not repetitive. Every character has their traits, especially the main ones we've seen from the first book. It kept me on the edge of my seat until the very last page. More riddles. More stakes. Character development. Humor. This is as good as it could be. “And it was pretty much the best underwater kiss of all time.” But one and only reason I took one star out from this review because I thought the ending was supposed to be the real end, but actually it was a loose end planned for the next series which is bound to happen on the same timeline. I felt quite unsettled. “It's hard to enjoy practical jokes when your whole life feels like one.”

    After reading The Battle of the Labyrinth I thought it would be my favorite in the series. I can't say how wrong I was. This was it. This was the best one in the series. It was just... epic. Perfect way to end it. Reading last few pages I had a huge lump in my throat. After finishing it, I just sat there, wishing to flip it to page one, and start again. Hopefully I'll get a chance to read Heroes of Olympus soon.

    Couldn't think of a better way to finish this series! I took me almost a month to finish this, not because it was bad but because I am revising for exams. The end of this book got me out my reading slump! So sad that this series is over:(

But in case you have to go eat, or sleep or you just don't care for it, then you can click on this right here➡Go the Distance, and you'll be directed to a song which pretty much summarizes Percy's(and basically every hero's) journey. The song is for Hercules, but like I said it sings for all heroes! It's all about going the distance with these guys. I can't believe I'm saying goodbye to this series, but I am. And I'm going all out! ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖ Before Olympus, before the gods, there were the titans. They were monstrous and unforgiving, and they wreaked havoc on earth. The titan lord, Kronos ruled with tyranny and cruelty, indulging in cannibalism by eating his own children to prevent them from usurping him. LIKE His three eldest sons-the big dogs I mean gods together overpowered him during the last world war and chopped him into little, anchovy pieces before casting him into the depths of tartarus. Zeus became the god of the sky, Poseidon the god of the sea and Hades the god of the underworld. It's no secret, even the gods liked to have fun, popping up half-blood children here and there from their many affairs with humans. But the three eldest gods made a pact to stop siring demi-gods because their own children proved to be too powerful. But Poisedon(smart guy he is)broke the deal, cheated, and so came Percy. This is the story of one hero. LET THE ADVENTURE BEGIN... Meet the heroes.. ▶ Percy, son of Poseidon(god of the sea) ▶ Annabeth, daughter of Athena(goddess of wisdom) ▶ Grover erh..goat boy (protector) ▶ Luke, traitor who deserves to be burnt at the stake Son of Hermes(god of travellers and thieves and messengers and...) OH SHUT UP ▶ Clarisse, daughter of Ares(god of war) ▶ And Thalia, unfortunate daughter of Zeus turned into a pine tree which now protects the camp. Meet Anklusomas/Riptide(operative word being R.I.P) ▶ The lightning thief Delphi's prophecy for the quest You shall go west to face the god who has turned, You shall find what was stolen and see it safely returned, You shall be betrayed by the one you call friend, And fail to save what matters most in the end. Just when everyone's started getting acquainted, all hell breaks loose --well all heaven in this case. Someone steals Zeus's master bolt and a war begins to brew because Zeus blames Hades and even Poseidon. It's up to Percy to clear his and his father's name. So he journeys to the underworld. Believing that Hades is the mastermind behind the thievery, he sets out to retrieve Zeus's bolt from him. And it turns out slimy Luke's behind it all (well he never really said that but..) But not just by himself. He's Kronos' puppet working for Kronos after all. ▶ The sea of monsters Delphi's prophecy for the quest You shall sail the iron ship with warriors of bone, You shall find what was stolen and make it your own, But despair for your life entombed within stone, To fail without friends, to fly home alone. Thalia's pine tree which once gave the camp protection has now been poisoned. The tree is dying, camp has lost it's protective walls A quest is in order A quest for the golden fleece which has the power to nourish and give life. Percy gets a baby brother, Tyson! A cyclopes baby brother:- gods + nymph = Cyclopes And at that point I was just like oh Poisedon Together Percy, Annabeth, and Tyson venture out to the sea of monsters to get the fleece from a Cyclopes dwelling. They also happen to save Grover too from the big bully. Over the course of their journey, a little bonding takes place. Because nothing beats family. Hermes shrugged. “Families are messy. Immortal families are eternally messy. Sometimes the best we can do is to remind each other that we’re related, for better or worse … and try to keep the maiming and killing to a minimum" And I mean nothing beats family. There’s one thing I’ve learned over the eons, it’s that you can’t give up on your family, no matter how tempting they make it. It doesn’t matter if they hate you, or embarrass you, or simply don’t appreciate your genius Back at camp, the fleece works well. Just a little bit too well. Thalia comes back to life.. Only to end up joining the eternal maidens(and in case you missed the point of the underline--emphasis rests on the words 'eternal maidens') hunting group, giving up her life as a hero...and her chances of becoming a mother . Pretty good waste of fleece if you ask me. ▶ The titan's curse Delphi's prophecy for the quest Five shall go west to the goddess in chains, One shall be lost in the land without rain, Campers and Hunters combined prevail, The bane of Olympus shows the trail, The titan's curse must one withstand, And one shall perish by parent's hand. Hunters pledged to the goddess, Artemis, team up with campers(Percy, Grover, Thalia), and together they go in search of Artemis and Annabeth who have both been kidnapped. And if you read the prophecy right, you'd know- Somebody did die. Or rather, somebod-ies. ▶ Battle of the labyrinth Delphi's prophecy for the quest You shall dwell in the darkness of the endless maze, The dead, the traitor, and the lost one raise, You shall rise or fall by the ghost king's hand, The child of Athena's final stand, Destroy with a hero's final breath, And lose a love to worse than death Grover is about to be exiled because he hasn't found god pan. Percy and his gang enter into Daelalus's labyrinth in search of god pan and also Daelalus himself before Luke can get to him and use him for all kinds of nefariouness to further his evil plan. Luke is still hung up on stupidity. Would you quit singing the same old song? You're clogging up my ear drums. Okay maybe we should have paid a little more attention to Luke's whining because in the end, Kronos finally wakes up. But not in the way I imagined. ME He's a total cheater! ▶ The last Olympian The great prohecy A child of the eldest gods Shall reach sixteen against all the odds, Shall see the world in endless sleep, A hero's soul, cursed blade shall reap, A single choice shall end his days, Olympus to perserve or raze A war has begun...a test of our heroes' courage and strength... There's chaos in the outside world, in the cities, in the ocean. Chaos everywhere. The risen titans are getting ready to march up to Olympus. All the gods are busy trying to hold up fort. All except the last Olympian. And Percy meets her, the goddess Hestia. ‘I am here because when all else fails, when all the other mighty gods have gone off to war, I am all that’s left. Home. Hearth. I am the last Olympian. You must remember me when you face your final decision.’ She knows of his plan to take up the curse of Achilles by bathing in the river Styx. It's the only way to beat Kronos. So she bids him farewell as he goes on to face Kronos. But facing Kronos is not the end. The journey continues beyond this series. And so Percy Jackson, until soon.. credits to the owners of the gifs! ▶ BOOK 1-The lightning Thief ▶ BOOK 2-Sea of Monsters ▶ BOOK 3-The Titan's Curse ▶ BOOK 4-Battle of the Labyrinth

    WELL. That was a satisfying conclusion! I admit, I put this one off because I didn't want it to all be over. But it was good. Despite being, like, a 360-page long battle (let me collapse in exhaustion). It's not my favourite PJ book, but I loved it and I adored the ending, although it was sad. PEOPLE DIED. One of my favourite characters died. I'm in a little pain here, 'scuse me. BUT! So many awesome things went down! I especially swooned a bit of the entirely shippable Percabeth moments. They ar WELL.

So many awesome things went down! I especially swooned a bit of the entirely shippable Percabeth moments. They are so cute. Although Percy spends 99% of the time being absolutely clueless. I felt he was a bit immature at times with the sheer density of his skull BUT. There was a war on. The fact that Percy was so so focused on the war and the prophecies and saving people (huntin' things the family business....ahem. Sorry. Winchester moment.) was also completely admirable. I cannot complain. I was worried it was going to nosedive into a triangle, but it really didn't. Like I said, though...almost the entire book was a battle. I am here for plot, characters, and witty dialogue. While I LOVE a good sword-fight, I wasn't prepared for the sheer amount of stabbing. I feel like this is the reason I wasn't totally invested. The ending was oh so perfect but a little sad. I have a love/hate relationship with series finales...I want them to be sad and powerful but I DON'T WANT THEM TO BE SAD. haha. I'm a living contradiction. (view spoiler)[ So Luke died, of course, and he killed himself and I just was so torn up about it. LUKE WASN'T ALL BAD. I really didn't hate him. I just couldn't, and knowing more of his backstory made the whole thing even more miserable. A few other minor characters carked it, but it was LUKE I was bawling over. (hide spoiler)] I liked Percy's decisions in the finale. I like the gods' decisions. I LIKE GROVER. I also like that Grover likes food. Well done, Rick Riordan. I am now dashing away to read the next Heroes of Olympus series, I think, because I NEED MORE PERCY EVEN IF IT'S NOT SOLEY ABOUT PERCY. HE IS AMAZING. I LOVED THIS. HUZZAH.

    3.5 stars I listened to this book on audio and I'm so grateful for that because I listened to it all in one sitting and didn't have to deal with being bored for half the book like I did for the previous 2 books in this series. As far as my actual thoughts about this book, I just think it was kinda lukewarm if you forgive my luke pun. i just cannot get over how immature the characters and the writing style is. it makes me even not want to read heroes of olympus because i don't want to suffer throu 3.5 stars I listened to this book on audio and I'm so grateful for that because I listened to it all in one sitting and didn't have to deal with being bored for half the book like I did for the previous 2 books in this series.

This series totally ends where you are given a "oh yay it's all over..... BUT IS IT??????" which is frustrating, but i'm so so glad to finally have this series tackled.
