What would you rate this book: 4 out of 5 Stars
The book was extraordinary; it contained great lore that connected with the other books and it was the best of all the books in the series. The end of the series comes to a marvelous conclusion that finished any unsolved mysteries and problems in all the other books. Although I would not recommend this book until the others are read because the plot would not make sense. Overall, the whole series was a great trilogy and it was an experience.
The fifth and last book of the Percy Jackson series The Last Olympian was my favorite for numerous reasons. It ties a plot to an end learning Percy’s old friend Luke is possessed by Kronos and he plots to bring Olympus to ruins. On Percy’s journey to get defences to the assault he fulfills the great prophecy told in all the previous books. Rachel becomes the new Oracle to tell the new prophecy for a future book series. Percy tries his best to make up with his friends and save Olympus.
Enticing Passage: “I had no choice. I threw my sword like a javelin at Kronos. It bounced harmlessly of his chest, but it did startle him. I pushed through a crowd of monsters and jumped off the side of the ship - toward the water a hundred feet below.
Audience:Young adults would like this book because Percy Jackson is the same age.
