A review of "The Last Olympian" by Rick Riordan
This is the last book in the Percy Jackson series and it is the most exciting one in the series, in my opinion. Will Percy and his friends prevail over the newly restored titan Kronos? The story begins with Percy sharing an afternoon with his friend Rachel Dare when Percy’s Pegasus, Blackjack, lands on the car Percy is driving and tells him that his powers are needed elsewhere. So Percy, hoping to return soon, zooms off to help his friends. After coming back sad from a loss of a friend and a completed mission, Percy and Blackjack return to Camp Half-Blood, a camp that trains Greek Demigods, they meet up with Percy’s friends Annabeth and the satyr Grover. They gather together the camp and they ride to Manhattan and to the Empire State building, on top of which is Olympus, palace of the gods. The camp is soon joined by the Hunters of Artemis and together they set up defenses. Of course they are out numbered one to ten and none of the gods can help them because they’re all busy fighting the monster Typhon. This book which I highly recommend and which I have read many times reminds people of old mythology and if you enjoy this book, Rick Riordan has written many others.
