All year the half-bloods have been preparing for battle against the Titans, knowing the odds are against them. Kronos is stronger than ever, and with every god and half-blood he recruits, his power only grows.
In this momentous final book in the New York Times best-selling series, the 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.
What an amazing finale to an amazing series. That’s pretty much all you need to know. This was such a worthy ending and I’m super stoked with how it ended.
You’d think that a book that is mostly a long battle would be boring and repetitive. But you’d be wrong. It is fun and entertaining, and it keeps you on edge.
There was a lot of unexpected plot twists and several things that will have you either cheering loudly or wiping tears from your face. Oh, I cried a few times during this book. Some characters will be redeemed and some will turn out not to be who you think they were.
Pretty much all I can say is that I loved this book, I loved the entire series and I’m sad it’s over. I warmly recommend you to read this series if you haven’t already done so. I will continue with the second series, Heroes of Olympus, so you can expect reviews of those books in the future.
Do I recommend it?
Yes, yes and yes! Go, buy the whole series right now!
