The Last Olympian  - Rick Riordan

January 6- August 7

Summary- All year the half-bloods have been preparing for battle against the Titans, knowing the odds of 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 Percy Jackson and the Olympians 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 - This was a great finale to the series I loved this book so we start off with Rachel and Percy and then we see Blackjack and Becondorf and they go on the princess amdromna and of course Becondorf sacrifices himself and dies . And then Percy sees Tyson and his father and who looks terrible and then Percy goes back to camp . And Percy has to tell everyone that Becondorf didn't make it even the guys girlfriend and Selena . This book had allot of funny lines even with all the death and Percy gets to hear his prophecy finally what I wanted to yell at percy about is he didn't get why Annabeth was always so mad at him cause she likes you idiot and your talking to another girl if I was her I'd probably punch percy into understanding . So Percy and Nico go and Nico tricks him and he goes to see his dad ugh Nico but he gets out. And the war is starting and everyone from camp but the aries cabin is there cause clarise was being stupid and doesn't want to fight . And Percy is having all these dreams and rachel writes his name in greek and she goes to see percy and NYC is asleep . And Rachel tells that he isn't the hero that someone else is so there fighting all these monsters and percy took a swim in the river styx and he thought about Annabeth and when they were on the bridge Annabeth got poisoned she was fine in all and I loved when Percy and Annabeth would just talk and she would just wanted to talk about them but Percy wouldn't get it . And then Percy was trying to get his dad to help out and he did eventually and I loved his parents helped out his mom fired a shot gun and his step dad stabbed a monster . And we find out who the spy is it's Selena I didn't see it coming she died going against a drakon . And she was posing as Clarise and the aries campers do come and Clariese was crying cause they were friends and then comes the big fight with Kronos . and Annabeth gets Luke to come out of him and he is like did you love me and she's I loved you like a brother . there was a ton of other stuff in this book with Lukes mom she lost her mind she tried to be the oracal but didn't know that it was cursed by Hades . Luke ends up killing himself Poseidon shows up and helps out and then they go to olympus and Percy is offered to be a god but he turns it down he is like you are gods this shouldn't of happened if you were more involved in your children's lives so that's what there going to do and build more cabins for more of the gods awesome and Rachel becomes the oracal . so percy and Annabeth talk and he's trying to tell her his feeling for him and she kisses him awwww and then everyone is like finally and they have an underwater kiss this book was so great it was a great finale and I loved this series so much Percy and Annabeth eeek.

“She raised an eyebrow. "You got something to say to me, Seaweed Brain?"

You'd probably kick my butt."

You know I'd kick your butt."

I brushed the cake off my hands. "When I was at the River Styx, turning invulnerable . . . Nico said I had to concentrate on one thing that kept me anchored to the world, that made me want to stay mortal."

Annabeth kept her eyes on the horizon. "Yeah?"

Then up on Olympus," I said, "when they wanted to make me a god and stuff, I kept thinking-"

Oh, you so wanted to."

Well, maybe a little. But I didn't, because I thought-I didn't want things to stay the same for eternity, because things could always get better. And I was thinking . . ." My throat felt really dry.

Anyone in particular?" Annabeth asked, her voice soft.

I looked over and saw that she was trying not to smile.

You're laughing at me," I complained.

I am not!"

You are so not making this easy."

Then she laughed for real, and she put her hands
around my neck. "I am never, ever going to make things easy for you, Seaweed Brain. Get used to it.”




The throne rumbled. A wave of gale-force anger slammed into me.
WHO DARES-
The voice stopped abruptly, The anger retreated, which was a good thing, because just those two words had almost blasted my mind to shreds.
Percy. My fathers voice was still angry but more controlled. What-exactly-are you doing on my throne?
"I'm sorry, Father," I said. "I needed to get your attention."
This was a very dangerous thing to do. Even for you. If I hadn't looked before I blasted, you would now be a puddle of seawater.”



The Council agrees," Zeus said. "Percy Jackson, you will have one gift from the gods."
I hesitated. "Any gift?"
Zeus nodded grimly. "I know what you will ask. The greatest gift of all. Yes, if you want it, it shall be yours. The gods have not bestowed this gift on a mortal hero in many centuries, but, Perseus Jackson-if you wish it-you shall be made a god. Immortal. Undying. You shall serve as your father's lieutenant for all time."
I stared at him, stunned. "Um...a god?"
Zeus rolled his eyes. "A dimwitted god, apparently. But yes. With the consensus of the entire Council, I can make you immortal. Then I will have to put up with you forever."
"Hmm," Ares mused. "That means I can smash him to a pulp as often as I want, and he'll just keep coming back for more. I like this idea.”
