Percy Jackson and the Last Olympian is the fifth book in the Percy Jackson series.
This series is a blend of Greek mythology with modern day technology.
Set in Manhattan, New York, this series is an action adventure fantasy.
Percy is a demigod - half god, half human. He is the son of Posiedon, the god of the sea, and a human.
In this book Percy along with his friends- Annabeth, daughter of Athena, goddess of war and wisdom,
Grover, a satyr and Rachel Elizabeth Dare, a mortal ,who can see through the ‘mist’(which is a magical force which does not allow the mortals to see the gods, demigod,monsters,etc) along with the other demigods must fight off Kronos ,the titan lord, his titans and the monsters at his command from conquering Mount Olympus which happens to be located in New York City on the 600th floor of the Empire State Building. While the gods are off fighting the terrible monster Typhon, Posiedon must defend his throne from Oceanus, the titan of the sea. Hades has refused to help altogether.
This is a very fast paced action adventure fantasy thriller. The action starts from the first few pages.
I recommend this book to everyone - children and adults alike.
Hope you enjoy reading this book.
