The Last Olympian (Percy Jackson and the Olympians, #5)

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 demig...

    Wow that was a great ending to this very fantastical series! I cannot wait to go into more detail in my series review which will be out probably next week. I'll be covering my opinions on all 5 books and then my overall opinion of the series. I am so happy I FINALLY read PJO! This was a "dam" good series (lol get it? "Dam")

    (A-) 84% | Very GoodNotes: A battlefront ballad to salvation in sacrifice, where willing oneself to weakness wins affinity, accession, and affection.

    I'm a little sad actually because I didn't want to say goodbye to our hero, the one and only Percy Jackson. From the beginning we can already see things are going to move quickly. Kronos has a lot of things up his sleeve and won't let Percy and the other demigods have a break. The book pretty much starts off with a bang and doesn't slow down from there. Annabeth and Percy's relationship is kind of strained and Rachel showing up isn't helping matt...

    Hello, my name is PJO Trash™ nice to meet you. I’ve been blessed to join this fandom due to the INCREDIBLE and significant amounts of fan art. It helps me survive. The Last Olympian continues off from the previous book. Kronos’s army is gaining rapid strength and the Half-Bloods are having a hard enough time holding the crazy beast, Typhon. Kronos takes his chance and begins advancing on New York City, home to an unguarded Mouth Olympus. ...

    This is the 5th Percy Jackson book I've read to my daughter Celyn. It's half-term and we've not had many carers (Celyn is very disabled and gets respite care) so we've had a chance to finish the book off.As always Celyn has supplied the rating and left the review to me.The concluding (well - we could go to book 4.5 & 5.5) volume of the Percy Jackson series continues in the same vein as the previous volumes, though with an added sense of danger an...

    My favorite of the series for sure! This is a great conclusion to the story, and definitely a book worth the build up of the rest of the series. It is so much fun to see how far our characters have come, and how big their fight really is. Absolutely fantastic. (upping my previous rating of four stars to five stars because I just enjoyed so many parts of this book!)

    See this review and more like it on www.bookbastion.net!_________Before you all start throwing lightning bolts at me, please keep in mind that in my book, a 3 star review is still a positive one! I just had a number of problems with this particular entry to the series that I couldn't overlook and plan to discuss in depth.Don't get me wrong, The Last Olympian is definitely an entertaining spectacle from start to finish. The sense of action was on...

    I finished this with a smile. After finishing The Battle of the Labyrinth I had no doubt that I would love the last one. Why specifically I knew this, I have no idea. But I was right and I'm happy when I'm right. I was surprised that most of the book is set in New York City but it actually makes sense since Mount Olympus is above the Empire State Building. I liked this book so much for the same reasons that I liked the other books. It was so funn...

    REASONS WHY PERCY JACKSON IS THE ANSWER TO ALL YOUR PROBLEMS (or a reading slump): ● It’s the perfect blend of puns and humour. ● Despite the overwhelming situations and terrifying plot, it never fails in what intended to deliver: a lighthearted read with loveable characters.● ANNABETH FREAKING CHASE● There are satyrs, centaurs, demigods, root beer, deaths and pizzas.● The chapter titles are the best things you’ve ever read (I Buy S...

    Hey so I designed an adventure game which you should go play because I've put a lot of work into it. It's nothing serious, just for fun, but you can see how YOU would do in the Battle for Manhattan! Check it out here.*deep sigh*♥

    OKAY I FINISHED READING PJO FOR THE FIRST TIME I FEEL SO ACCOMPLISHED I mean this is soo many people's favourite series and I'd never read it but now I have ! I feel like a true reader !Anyway, I got to see my mans Percy Jackson go from a scared 12 year old who wouldn't breathe in Ares direction for fear of pissing him off to a 16 year old boy who pretty much told all the gods to go fuck themselves because they're disrespectful trash and I'm livi...

    Finished re-reading this––and yup, it's still amazing. It's been five years since I first read it, and that ending still makes me tear up. GAHHHHH. <3 I will write a longer review at some point.I'll put my old review under a spoiler because it was very spoilery (and oh my gosh I was ... not the most eloquent back then, to put it lightly). :P(view spoiler)[5/7/09:*takes deep breaths* Oh ...

    WOW JUST WOW. Easily my favorite book in the series! It wrapped up this series perfectly and gave hints to what would happen in the Heroes of Olympus series! I'm definitely a little in love with Percy now and have a total girl crush on Annabeth and those last couple of pages killed me (in a good way). I'm so glad I finished this series and I can't wait to start the Heroes of Olympus next year!

    I finished this book after five days I finished the previous book. Out of these five days, two days I didn't read at all as I spent them with family. One day I was very busy, couldn't get enough time to read. I started this book two days ago and this was soo much full of action! Literally, this book is almost full action! You wouldn't get the chance to put it down once you started it. Olympus is threatened by Kronos' attack. Gods can't protect it...

    “With great power... comes great need to take a nap. Wake me up later.” I was satisfied by the ending of this series. It's one hell of a fight when Percy coping with his alliance has prepared for the fight destined to take place in The Last Olympian. The fight is incredibly turbulent and makes this book intruguing from the start. There are many things I've longed for since book one: drama, adrenaline-pumping scenes, and NICO ! Frankly, The La...

    After reading The Battle of the Labyrinth I thought it would be my favorite in the series. I can't say how wrong I was.This was it. This was the best one in the series. It was just... epic. Perfect way to end it. Reading last few pages I had a huge lump in my throat. After finishing it, I just sat there, wishing to flip it to page one, and start again. Hopefully I'll get a chance to read Heroes of Olympus soon.

    Couldn't think of a better way to finish this series!I took me almost a month to finish this, not because it was bad but because I am revising for exams.The end of this book got me out my reading slump!So sad that this series is over:(

    Because this is going to be ONE OF THE LONGEST & GIFIEST RIDES EVERThis review absolutely needs it. I need it, for that moment when I decide to look back on this series.But in case you have to go eat, or sleep or you just don't care for it, then you can click on this right here➡Go the Distance, and you'll be directed to a song which pretty much summarizes Percy's(and basically every hero's) journey. The song is for Hercules, but like I said it ...

    3.5 starsI listened to this book on audio and I'm so grateful for that because I listened to it all in one sitting and didn't have to deal with being bored for half the book like I did for the previous 2 books in this series. As far as my actual thoughts about this book, I just think it was kinda lukewarm if you forgive my luke pun. i just cannot get over how immature the characters and the writing style is. it makes me even not want to read hero...

    WELL. That was a satisfying conclusion! I admit, I put this one off because I didn't want it to all be over. But it was good. Despite being, like, a 360-page long battle (let me collapse in exhaustion). It's not my favourite PJ book, but I loved it and I adored the ending, although it was sad. PEOPLE DIED. One of my favourite characters died. I'm in a little pain here, 'scuse me.BUT! So many awesome things went down! I especially swooned a bit of...

I reeaaallly want to see more Percabeth though lol but don't we all? :p Now I just need to decide if I want to start The Red Pyramid or The Lost Hero next, any suggestions? :D...

    I'm such a mess of feelings after finishing this book that I don't even know where to start! Everything about this was perfect, from start to finish! At times I seriously wondered how it would all play out without devastating losses but then it all just came together so perfectly, I couldn't have imagined a better ending for this series! I grew to love all the characters even more and they will forever remain some of my favourite characters ever!...

    I am even more excited for this book than I was for HP 7. I totally love this series because I love Greek mythology. Anyways, this book will be amazing. I really hope we find out about Nico's past. I hope that Annabeth will realize that Luke is scum. I'm hoping for some good Percabeth moments or else I sue. More of the Olympians, particularly Athena, Apollo and Artemis, would be appreciated.
