The Last Olympian by Rick Riordan

The Last Olympian is the conclusion of the Percy Jackson book series and in my opinion it was the best one by far.  In this book Percy is about to turn 16 and with that comes the prophecy that Percy may bring down the Olympians.  The book starts out with Percy and Rachel (his friend who can see through the mist which keeps mortals ignorant of the fact that monsters and gods are running around) joy riding in Percy’s stepdad’s car when Blackjack, the Pegasus, lands on their car.  Percy then has to leave for an important mission with Beckendorf that concerns Kronos, the titan who has taken over Luke’s body.  Throughout the book there are many battles and Percy has finally become the warrior that he should be.  Percy must also take a risk to become powerful enough to take on Kronos and his vast army.  It is up to Percy and his friends to protect Olympus from Kronos and his invading army and keep reality from changing, because all the Olympians have enough troubles with past enemy Titans and minor gods switching sides.  I liked the ending but I wish that Percy would have chosen differently with the prize from the Olympians.  I would definitely recommend this book to anyone who liked the previous Percy Jackson books or fiction books on Greek mythology.
