Percy Jackson and The Olympains Book 5 by Rick Riordan


BLURBS:
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.


THOUGHTS:
Sheena - Sorry for the late review.


Like every other series that I learned to like, I am sad that this is the last book of Percy. From a scale of 1-5, Five being the highest. I rate this book 3.5. I know. I know. Don't hate me, let me first share the positive: I love how Percy turned out to be as smart, kind hearted and strong as what a god (in my opinion) should be. It gives out the conclusions on all the questions that nags me, Dare's destiny and when they were already actually fighting Kronos' evil minions, there's so many good action scenes. The negative part... here goes. Ever since the beginning of this series, I was given the impression that Percy will make this huge decision that will determine the fate of the gods as well as mankind, and I keep making up scenarios on what it would be... but it turned out to be an ordinary one. It was very dramatic for something that turned out so mediocre. It was the weakest in the series, the Battle of Labyrinth was my favorite. it seems so uninspired for a series ending.


Still... I will miss the series and the world of the gods.
