Guest Post -- Review : The Last Olympian

The Last Olympian (Percy Jackson & the Olympians, Book 5)
Title: Percy Jackson and the Olympians The last Olympian
Genre: Fantasy, Fiction
Publisher: Disney, Hyperion book
Rating 8/10

Main Characters: Percy, Annabeth, Grover.

The gods attacked. Lightning flashed. Arrows of gold and silver streaked into the cloud like a rocket tracers and exploded. Slowly the cloud ripped apart, and I saw Typhon clearly for the first time.
This is an excerpt from the book, where the gods are trying to destroy Typhon.

This is the fifth book of the Percy Jackson series. This series is based upon Greek Mythology and Greek gods. It has a main character, Percy Jackson, who is a demi-god. A demi god is a person who is a son or daughter of any Greek god and a mortal. In this book Percy is helped by two of his friends, Annabeth, who is a demi-god and daughter of Athena, and Grover who is a satyr. Some other Greek gods mentioned in this book are Poseidon, Hades and Zeus. Poseidon is the god of the sea. Zeus is the god of the sky and Hades is the god of the underworld.

The problem in this book is that the Titans and the gods are having a war. Also Kronos, who is a Titan, has been growing stronger, little by little and now he has a lot of power. Then there is Typhon. Typhon is a minion of the Titans. But he is different from the other minions because he is so strong. In the beginning of the book they try to get ready for the war and then the war starts. Will the Gods win or will they be defeated?

I thought this book was the second best book in the series. This book was really fun to read. In this book there was no quest at all. Rick Riordan got me really excited with his introduction. I was really anxious to see what would happen in this book. I recommend this book to all the readers who enjoy action.
