This is a very entertaining and rich climax to the initial five-book tale of the Percy Jackson universe. The main character is more self-aware, the supporting characters play significant roles, backstories are fleshed-out, and there is a completeness to this book that elevates it above the earlier four. While Annabeth seems to maintain her relative maturity in the face of crises, it's satisfying to see that Percy and Nico both level-up pretty significantly in terms of growth and maturity; while the relationship between Percy and Annabeth is given main stage billing for obvious reasons, the working friendship between Percy and Nico seems nearly as satisfying and perhaps important to the long-term stories. Also, the deities certainly seem to acknowledge a sea change in ongoing events.

If anything, the great bugaboo of this type of fiction remains how the survivors walk off shrug and laugh; PTSD doesn't seem to happen. While such happy endings are nice, they just don't seem to ring very true. ( )

Dieser fünfte und damit letzte Teil der Serie hat mir wieder besser gefallen. Bei der finalen Schlacht gibt es natürlich auch viel und ausführlich Schlachtengetümmel, insgesamt aber geht es doch mehr um die Charaktere und ihre Interaktionen. ( )

Maybe it was just me, but this one seemed a little more contrived and far more boring than the rest. An okay end to the series, but after reading the mistborn series this felt woefully inadequate. ( )

The final novel in the Percy Jackson and the Olympians series by Rick Riordan, THE LAST OLYMPIAN, is everything a final novel should be. There is no build-up because Mr. Riordan took care of that in the first four books. Neither does he make readers wait for the promised battle. He doesn't add any last-minute characters. Instead, we have nonstop action and the unveiling of long-held secrets.

Even better, Percy finally shows some of the maturity I would expect to see from a teenager who was forced to grow up at a young age. He is clever with his battle tactics, compassionate where necessary but brutal when needed. After feeling like Percy sounded too young and naive in books three and four given his experiences, it is a treat to get a glimpse of what Percy would be like as an adult.

I'll also say that even though I wasn't a huge Percy and Annabeth fan, the ending of THE LAST OLYMPIAN was adorable. Mr. Riordan handled the awkwardness and Percy's nervousness with delicacy and just a slight touch of humor. I imagine there was more than one child who used those scenes as motivation for their own awkward romantic encounters.

There is no doubt that THE LAST OLYMPIAN is the best book in the series. It contains within its pages everything I was hoping to see in previous books culminating in the battle for Olympus. I thought the battle scenes to be well-written, detailed without being graphic, and touching on fallen comrades and foes with the appropriate level of gravitas. While Mr. Riordan sets up the next series with a well-timed prophecy, I consider my time with Percy Jackson and friends at an end, with a final book that provides enough closure to satisfy me. ( )

Okay, funny thing: when I re-read "Percy Jackson and the Battle of the Labyrinth" a few days ago, I was practically certain it was my favorite of the entire series. However, after re-reading the final entry in this series, I'm not so sure anymore. Yeah, I can't believe I'm saying this, but the highest-rated Percy Jackson actually surprised me. Why is that, you ask? Well, it's because I didn't like this book as much as I do now when I read it the first two times. I thought it was pretty good, but I didn't like it as much as books 3 or 4.

So, what changed? Well, my absolute favorite thing about this book is how grounded and emotional it is. While I love this series for how fun and light-hearted it is, a lot of the times I felt like it was a bit too fun. It felt like a lot of Marvel movies that were great to watch but didn't have that emotional core that could make a truly a great movie. Thankfully, the final entry does a fantastic job giving the series a much-need emotional pay off. Even though this book is almost 400 pages long, more than half of it is dedicated to the final battle in Manhattan. However, that's not just because the battle is long and difficult, but it's also due to the fact that a LOT of time is spent in dreams, visions, conversations, and thoughts, all of which pack a lot of emotional punch. The themes of love, sacrifice, and hope are extremely prevalent here. I was surprised by how much this book touched me. I thought I would get really bored having to read almost 200 pages to get through the final battle, but it actually gave me a lot to think about and left me craving more. Bravo.

The battle itself is great as well. One thing I didn't like about the final Harry Potter book was that the final battle felt like it happened a little too quickly, at least when compared to the size of the whole series. This battle, however, takes its sweet ass time. There are multiple assaults by Kronos and his army, and there are multiple breaks and retreats. Just when you think the battle may be won due to the arrival of some last-minute saviors (The Party Ponies, Ares's cabin, The House of Hades), the fight continues and gets even more intense. It felt like a true war. I loved it.

Even the last 40 pages of the book after the battle ended were great. Rick Riordan tied off all loose ends. No stones were left unturned. Every character in the franchise got a satisfying send-off. It was extremely gratifying. I say this because I dislike how abruptly things end in "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows". That book feels like it needs another 20 or 30 pages to do the same thing this book does.

I don't really have much to say about Luke's arc in this book because everyone knows how great it is and how it gives this series such an emotional conclusion. I'll only add that I love how much time is dedicated to learning about Luke's past and his family. It makes his final sacrifice to defeat Kronos feel so much more climactic and epic. The final stand-off in the palace of the gods is a truly a remarkable ending to an incredible battle.

I don't really have much that I dislike about this book. My problems here are pretty much the same as my problems with the previous entries [silliness that went a bit too far (Kronos disappearing under a big blue butt. Really?), and love triangles that make want to rip my hairs out]. Yeah, I love this book, and I will say that, right now, it is tied with "Percy Jackson and the Battle of the Labyrinth" as my favorite book in the series, thought that may change in the future. ( )

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.
