The Geeky Adventures of a Bookish Girl

The Last Olympian — Rick Riordan


I am dispirited, knowing that this will be the final book in the Percy Jackson and the Olympians series. Nevertheless, the ideal denouement that I have been anticipating was consummated; as a matter of fact, it exceeded my expectations. It was gratifying to finally divulge into the conundrums of the prophecy, to behold the downfall of the potent adversary, to see the endeavors of the enemy’s former comrades in redeeming themselves, gods and demigods fighting hand in hand, and savoring our heroes’ lives subsequent to their successful exploit. What more to say?

I suppose the coolest occurrence in this book was Hades perforating into the battle scene—riding in a deathlike carriage, creating a fissure into the ground, and the dead arising from the Underworld as his combatants. How cool was that? Nico’s powers were definitely akin to that of his fathers’. Meanwhile, Percy fulfilling Luke’s last wishes instead of embracing immortality was very noteworthy. The Gods rarely bestows the aforementioned gift to worthy demigods but refuses it instead.

On the good side, the book ends in unanticipated promise of possibilities. A new prophecy was acknowledged, which only means that it is far from cessation yet. A lot of surprises to come!
