This book is the compelling finale to the series. The battle has realistic losses and injuries, and it shows the tenseness of war. The half-bloods are nearly defeated, but a hero-turned-enemy becomes a hero, by sacrificing himself. This book teaches about cost. Kronos fell, but it cost them a truly great hero, and many others. All were united, at the cost of many falling for the cause. The prophecy comes true, however it was Luke's days whose were numbered, not Percy. As midnight passed on Percy's birthday, the story of 5 books all comes together in a beautiful, touching end to the Percy Jackson and the Olympians book.

Although this is the last book in the series, there are many other books (by the same author) that continue the story! I recommend this book if you have read the previous books. Ages 10+ would be a good age to read this one.
This is the Fifth book in the Percy Jackson and the Olympians books. Percy and the demigods prepare for war with Kronos and his army.
Thrilling and full of adventure. Every thing we know as "real", Rick Riordan associates it with gods.
Camp Half-Blood is falling. Percy Jackson, son of Poseidon, and Rachel Elizabeth Dare, a mortal who can see through the mist, are having a great time driving along the beach, until Charles Beckendorf, son of Hephaestus, and Blackjack the Pegasus land on the cars' hood, to start to battle the crazed king of the Titans, Kronos. In the crazy-good final installment of the legendary Percy Jackson series, this book can't fail. Just like Percy's and Annabeth's plan. Sacrifices and sadness occur, and finally, the Big Three prophecy dawns when Percy turns 16. Mr. Riordan takes parts from other books, such as the Hunters of Artemis from the third book, and wonderfully fuses them together, to make a masterpiece. Percy is a relatable hero and the antagonists are so well put together. I loved it. You really should read it, but after you read the previous four. If you want to learn more about Greek Mythology and just have an epic ride through a book, this is the series for you.
This bbookis a great representation of growing charecters.
