Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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.

Review:

"A coherent, powerful tale at once exciting, philosophical and tear-jerking. A compelling conclusion to the saga." Kirkus, starred review

Review:

"High-voltage adventure and crackling wit." Booklist, starred review

Review:

"The action, never leisurely in any of the five books in the series, runs at a frantic pace here — monsters pop out with a rapidity that becomes almost predictable, except that they are so enjoyably hair-raising, and that Riordan has such clever ways of dispatching them....Like the stories in which they're rooted, Riordan's Percy Jackson novels speak to more than one audience, and in more than one key." The New York Times

Alyssa Pico, December 19, 2013 (view all comments by Alyssa Pico)
This was a great end to the series. It has everything that I came to expect from the series and with the addition of a spy in the camp, it made me try to figure out who it was and yet I never expected it to be who it was. I have to say that out of the five books, this is my favorite because it delves into the past of one of the characters and it also has an ending that is unexpected, but also made me smile. Rick Riordan did not disappoint with this final book.

A real page-turner just like the preceding four books in this series. Rick Riordan does not disappoint!
