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 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. (from barnesandnoble.com)
What I liked about the book was that Luke gave up his own life to kill [someone else]. In the end of the book Percy was given a choice. I would have improved that part and made him say [something else]. I would recommend this book to middle schoolers because it is full of adventure, comedy, and romance. But more importantly because it teaches kids (if they really think about it) they don’t have to do things by themselves. –Angelica L.
[I liked that this book had] lots of drama. I think there should have been more fights. Yes, [I would recommend this book to middle schoolers because] the book is very action-packed. –David G.
