      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      Although aimed at young teens, it has something to offer to adults too

      The Percy Jackson series is a fictional adventure that follows the son of Poseidon through his many challenges facing creatures and enemies of greek methodology along with his demigod friends. Up until this book there had been many twists and turns and you never knew what to expect and this book certainly doesn't disappoint. Rick Riordan keeps you guessing right until the very end.

      This book deals with Percy having to deal with the Titan, Lord Kronos and his army. There is a lot of battling in this book, but it is all very well written and builds up strong images in your head which makes it all feel very dramatic. Percy also faces some very tough decisions in this book and have a great impact on the gods, demigods and of course is ever growing relationships in the book.

      Although this book is aimed and a younger audience (9+ - probably aimed and young teens) I feel it is quite universal. I am 20 years old and througouly enjoyed it and as it so original, well written and I never knew what to expect. This book is a real page turner and you not be able to put it down.

      I would strongly reccomend that you read the series in order. Although this book will refresh what has happened in the past, you need a full understanding in order to appreciate everything that happens and the decisions being made.

      By the time you reach this book, you will be hooked and you will have such strong feelings for Percy and many other characters that it feels like you are fighting alongside them willing them on. The book provides a good ending and answers a lot of questions. It doesnt leave too much open or debate, which I must say I like, but it certainly leaves room for further books which I for one would very much welcome

      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      Great ending for the series

      The Last Olympian is the last book in the series written by Rick Riordan.
      The series follows a young boy by the name of Percy Jackson who is the son of Posiedon.

      For me the series has been great it has got everything you want its not predictable and just when you think something is going to happen some way it goes in the opposite direction.

      If there's one thing I will agree on is the series won't be for everyone the idea of the Greek Gods being alive and living in America may be a bit far fetched for some people.As for the characters I have not always liked some of them like Grover and sometimes Percy but as the story goes on the characters tend to grow on me.

      It is worth the buy because this last book is actioned packed.
      Although all the questions that have been asked in the series are answered in this book there are some that are left unanswered like

      What happens with the new Prophecy that was read out before the end?
      Does Kronos come back as he is immortal.

      The Story Begins

      The Gods have to fight one of the Titans Typhon after he was released from his prison.While Percy and the whole of Camp Blood must protect Olympus in a Final Battle against Kronos and his army.The fight is made a bit easier when Percy becomes Invincible after swimming in the river sticks which is located in the underworld.Percy also gets the Prophecy that he has been waiting for a long while which does not end up as he or I thought.

      If I had one complaint about the book is that it ends in a bit of story that is to be continued even though it is the last in the series and I hate it when authors do that as those bits of Story never get answered,

      Finally The title refers to a Goddess Named Hestia who is The Goddess of the camp fire who is the only one left in Olympus while everyone out battling Titans.
