All year the half-bloods have been preparing for battle against the Titans, knowing the odds of a 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 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. Download and start listening now!

    " I like this book because I read the whole sires and all of the books are leading up to this moment when percy has to fight krons to find out how the final you will have to read the book. "

    " This is best one of the series. "

    " The last olympian is a really good book because each chapter reveals secret after secret. I like ow it's very descriptive of whats happening in the story. Percy jackson the main character in the story has to lead his army to war with luke with the aid of annabeth, grover, and tyson. The events that I thought were major are the river styx and the last battle. The book is very interesting because you figure out things that you don't expect to happen. This book is similar to the serpents shadow because they both have to deal with evil gods and solve mysteries of the enemies plan. I think the part where percy jackson takes a dip in the styx is a special scene because he describes very well of the pain that he feels and the thoughts that he had were very interesting. I think it's a good book because it makes you want to keep reading it to the end. The battle of the labyrinth is the the book before the last olympian and there both very similar because they unravel secrets and have intense fights. I recommend this book to anyone who is intrested in greek mythology. "

    " This was a fantastic ending book! Again, less humor than the other books, and, really, very serious or dark at some points. The characters- every one of them, save Kronos, seem easy to sympathize with. I love how Rick Riordan can fit so many in-depth characters into the series and it still comes out so smoothly. And sometimes the twists seem never-ending. Of course, nothing wrong with that. Great read, a shame I had to finish so quickly. "

    " Ahhhhhhh. This was the best book in the series, hands down. It was non stop action but had good pacing. I never felt like it dragged. I mean, gah. Percy. Annabeth. Yes. And Percy became a man. And I loved everything about this book. "
