The Last Olympian #Review

It's been a good week to stay inside and read. Weather has went from hot to cold in a blink of an eye. I have packed my open toed shoes away and replaced them with my fall/winter ones and my boots. House is decorated for fall and this year I have a pumpkin carving kit! Never tried one before. If you don't hear from me next week it went badly and I'm missing some fingers and I can't type. Looking forward to planning fall activities with friends and family and a trip to my favorite vineyard is on the agenda for this weekend and a new vineyard has opened in my area as well so I see a wine tour in my future weekends as well. Planning what to cook for upcoming events is one of my favorite things to do as well. On a high note I'm glad I finished this series before all the fall maddness begins. The new book that goes with the series after this came out Tuesday.

The Last Olympian, Percy Jackson Series by Rick Riordan

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.

As promised to my daughter I have read the Percy Jackson series. She however did not mention that where this series ends The Lost Hero begins. Forcing the mythology geek in me to read this one as well. No complaints though because I have enjoyed them. This last installment had a few surprises and a battle scene close to being as awesome as the battle at the Ministry Of Magic in Order of the Phoenix. It's been great being able to discuss these books with my daughter. Time with you kids....never a waste. When she asked me who my favorite Hero was I said, "Nico of course and Hades is still my favorite God" and then she said "of course he is". And BIG shout out to Paul Blofis for believing is all this craziness. In my book he goes above and beyond the call of duty as a step father. Rock on Paul!
