Review: The Last Olympian (Percy Jackson and the Olympians book 5)

Rick Riordan does not disappoint with the latest and last book in the Percy Jackson and the Olympians series. The Last Olympian starts immediately in action, with the war on the Titans being the main focus. Percy is still having conflicting ideas about whether he should be dating Rachel or Annabelle, and Luke is still alive inside his own body. Kronos has not been able to force him out. The writing style is great as always, and the book is action packed and you do not want to put it down. I have been a huge fan of this series for a few years, it’s great YA fiction and I love reading about all the mythical Greek beasts and gods.

Now from a fan of the series of course I have a few misgivings about the ending of the series. I thought for one everything was a bit too easy after all the books of hard work. Percy choosing the path of Achilles was disappointing and the way he used his new found abilities kinda made the fight scenes boring. Also the love triangle was solved for Percy, he never had to make a decision himself, the girls in their own way decided for him. I just thought the ending was a bit too happy and positive for a book that has been all about drama and prophecy.
