Percy Jackson and the Olympians:
The Last Olympian
With the fate of Olympus in a teenagers hand’s, Rick Riordan ends the Percy Jackson series with a final battle in Percy Jackson and the Olympians: The Last Olympian. This fast paced book follows Percy Jackson and his friends on a quest to stop the Titan, Kronos and the demi-god, Luke from taking over Olympus and destroying all humanity as well as demi-gods everywhere. The only way Percy can do this is by taking on the Achilles Curse. I recommend this book to those who love action/adventure mixed with a little bit of romance and who have read and love the other Percy Jackson books.
The most important book standard is audience. This book is targeted more towards young adults. To accomplish this, Rick Riordan puts his main characters into situations most teenagers deal with everyday. The only difference is these teenagers fight monsters.
The second most important book standard is content. I thought this story was well organized and loved how it mixed fact with fiction to give us an action packed filled story with monsters, fights, and romance. With many twists and turns throughout the story, it doesn’t any get better than this.
The third most important book standard is the voice. The Last Olympian is about the final battle between the titans and bad demi-gods and the good demi-gods. To make this happen the voice of the story had to be very heroic and fast paced. I think Rick Riordan nailed it. Throughout the book is action and bravery as well as a little romance and in the end, a very happily ever after. For now.
If you love action and adventure mixed with romance then you will love this book. If you love the other Percy Jackson books then you will love this book. Just don’t read it if you have not read the others yet.
