This novel, written by Rick Riordan, is the final installment of the "Percy Jackson and the Olympians" Series. This was my second favorite of the series (5 Books Total), however I could definitely make a case for it being the best.
The book already starts off with Percy and Beckendorf landing on the Princess Andromeda, where they both attempt to blow the ship up and cause Luke and Kronos to delay their attempt in conquering Mount Olympus. The gang heads to New York and teams together to prevent Western Civilization from collapsing. Will the prophecy of Percy hold true on the day of his Sixteenth Birthday? Read the book and find out!
?The world was collapsing, and the only thing that really mattered to me was that she was alive.?
Publishers Weekly, 2009-05-18 Percy Jackson's fifth and final adventure begins with a blast and gets increasingly more explosive. It reads less like a novel than a 400-page battle scene set in Manhattan, pitting Percy, Annabeth, Grover & Co. against a pantheon of monsters intent on reaching the portal to Mount Olympus (located on the 600th floor of the Empire State Building). In other words: fans will not be disappointed. All the action takes place in the days before Percy's 16th birthday, on which a prophecy has foretold "a single choice shall end his days." Readers who have watched their dyslexic hero grow into his considerable powers since age 12 will not be surprised by his brave leadership. Or as Percy, facing the Minotaur's army, puts it in typically wry fashion: "It was now roughly one hundred and ninety-nine to one. I did the natural thing. I charged them." Details about Luke's childhood explain his traitorous allegiance to Kronos; Annabeth and Rachel Dare vie for Percy's attention; and the final clash would keep a Hollywood special effects team busy for years. As the capstone to this beloved series, this story satisfies. And a surprise character takes on the mantle of Oracle, instantly issuing a new prophecy that suggests, happily, there's more fun with the demigods to come. Ages 10-up.
