Summary:

"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 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 Percy Jackson and the Olympians 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:

The greatest ending to the demi gods that have consumed my life. This book is incredibly quirky and funny and I whipped through it. The characters all keep to their well written personalities while simultaneously growing. The battle scenes are very easy to navigate even if you're not from NYC thanks to directional and landmark help. The battle scenes are also amazingly fun and energetic. I loved everything about this book!
So the characters all have their flaws and Achilles heels and it's very easy to relate to everyone, including supposed bad guys...Nico, by far, is my absolute favorite! It may be because he's the son of Hades and I love Hades and Persephone but, hey, he's still a cool kid and grows up beautifully despite his tragic past. Also, Luke is one of my favorites...I'm sorry but he is. If you've read any of these books, you might dislike him but I was crying during the last two chapters of this book and I blame Luke Castellan and Rick Riordan.
I'm glad this book ventured more towards young adult because it shows that the middle graders who started with this series also grew through the half-bloods' story. The Last Olympian is relatable and sad and heart warming and intense and hilarious and quirky and very easy to pick up or to want to read again and again.
