The Last Olympian

The final chapter to the Percy Jackson series by Rick Riordan is The Last Olympian. The unavoidable war between the Titans and the Olympians is about to take place.  Kronos heads to New York City to attack the unprotected Mount Olympus (why yes, the gods do live above the Empire State building) while the Olympians attempt to control the monster Typhon.  Meanwhile, Percy and his gang of demigods set out to stop Kronos and protect Mount Olympus.  In this exciting conclusion we also learn the fate of Percy and his prophecy.  I have been told that the final battle with Kronos is very intense and is sure to have you glued to the book.  However, a large portion of the book focuses on Percy and all of the tasks he completes prior to the fight with Kronos, making it less about the final battle and more about the characters.  All and all, this is a wonderful series to read for all ages.  If you are looking for a book to get your child into reading, give this series a try.  It is full of suspense and humor to keep your child craving more.  The series has been incredibly popular since last winter and everyone that I have talked to has loved it.
