Percy Jackson and the Last Olympian

Ok I know its been a minute since I did a book review, but I've been so busy! Ugh I hate being too busy to pick up a book. *sigh* But I did finish my book early this morning, and I plan on starting my next one, fairly soon. (Meaning as soon as I finish this post and my Book Boyfriend lol)
Paperback, 381 pages
Published January 25th 2011
 Hyperion Books for Children
 All year the half-bloods have been preparing for battle against the Titans, knowing the odds of a victory are grim. Kronos’s army is stronger than ever, and with every god and half-blood he recruits, the evil Titan’s power only grows.

While the Olympians struggle to contain the rampaging monster Typhon, Kronos begins his advance on New York City, where Mount Olympus stands virtually unguarded. Now it’s up to Percy Jackson and an army of young demigods to stop the Lord of Time.

In this momentous final book in the New York Times best-selling series, the long-awaited prophecy surrounding Percy’s sixteenth birthday unfolds. And as the battle for Western civilization rages on the streets of Manhattan, Percy faces a terrifying suspicion that he may be fighting against his own fate.
*Review*
I don't even know where to start with this book, besides saying that it was WONDERFUL! It was a tear-jearker, it had plenty of adventure, and it finally came through with the little spot of romance that I've been hoping for Percy to have. Riordan made this one of the best stories in the series. I was a little upset, but just because this was the last book in the series. I've heard that the next series he started mentions Percy and Annabeth and I'm kind of excited. I already know by Riordan's writing style I will be reading that series too.As far as the characters, I learned alot from the group of demi gods and their parents and adventures. There was a time when I had to read The Illiad for class and I really hated trying to remember all the gods and what they were famous for and things like that. With this though, it was easy. All the monsters and gods (both major and minor) mentioned in the huge battle I was able to remember this time around. Lastly, I LOVED the ending (no pun intended). It made me happy to see how everything worked out for the greater good.
