So, as a part of our PJO read-along, Erika and I have completed the reading of The Last Olympian, and will now review it :) I know I’m a week late, I’m sorry!! ^-^
(this is going to be really short, sorry /: )
"All year the half-bloods have been preparing for battle against the Titans, knowing the odds of a 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 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."
OH my gods so good!
This was one heck of an ending! Surprised around every corner, unexpected conclusions... you name it!
Overall, this book did have that looming sense of ‘something is very wrong’ to it. But even so, the author managed to put certain light humor in it!
“” Its him,” I said. “Typhon.”
I was seriously hoping Chiron would say something good, like No, that’s our huge friend Leroy! He’s going to help us!”
“Curse me eh? I”ll make you pay! / I don’t want to rhyme all day!”
“With great power... comes great need to take a nap. Wake me up later.”
And then there’s a ton of really kick-butt pats where you just sit there like ‘woah!” while you are reading.
This book is a perfect conclusion to the series. It’s fun to read, and has everything a good book should have!
(Also I don’t know if you noticed, but there’s a bunch of foreshadowing to the heroes of olympus series. And I mean a LOT. *cough*House of Hades is mentioned *cough* Annabeth almost falls into a void *cough*)
Of course I’m giving this 5 feathers! Pff is that even a question?!
What did you think of The Last Olympian? Let me know in the comments! :)
