“The world was collapsing, and the only thing that really mattered to me was that she was alive.” ― Rick Riordan, The Last Olympian

Tech Summary: Read from January 19, 2018, to January 22, 2018.

I have to be brutally honest with this review: I loved it. The saga is just so hooking and appealing if you love mythology, action, fights, and if you get the goosebumps every time you read “FOR OLYMPUS!” which is what happened to me. The formula for this book is completely different from the rest. This time there is no school and no disaster that will push Percy to flee. Here we get directly to the matter: the fight, survival, war, the killing, and the tears.

I haven’t cried with a book in a long time, but don’t take me wrong, it is not like I was devastated but it was so sad… “Ares, to me!” those words make too much sense and I had to shut the book and walk home thinking about my life… (I had to walk anyways so XD)

We see all the main characters, and some others make fundamental moves and make so many changes. They all changed at the end and my perspective and from the other characters’ changed out of their heroic actions. In this title, Percy totally reaches and shows his maturity. Hubris is a flaw from all mythological heroes and Percy’s ego is totally damaged, but he is able to see beyond himself to make the most important move.

Despite all the end of sagas, usually, being super slow. This one does not stop for a second and does not give you a break. You cannot put it down unless you have to walk for a kilometer at night without light… (my daily journey). The resolution it is the typical “with the power of friendship and love” which I find kind of annoying, but again, from this book I expected it and I loved it so much!

So, the kingdom has given this book:

It seems that your majesty is pleased and the knights have spoken!

    1. I was super reluctant about reading the book in the first place, but I now see all the time I wasted. They are really good and no wonder why it is one of your very favorite of all times! Percy might not be one of the best heroes ever, but he pretty neat as a hero. To be honest, I cried a bit with this title T_T

  1. Percy Jackson is such a precious series for me, it’s definitely going to stay with me for a long time!! ❤ I’m glad you liked it, I’m currently reading the Heroes of Olympus series, I only have two more books of that series and hopefully, I’ll read them sometime this year because I miss those characters so much!
    Great review!

    1. Thank you very much Marta! And so far what do you think about the other saga? I miss them too! I didn’t want them to finish but at the end I think nobody wants there sagas to ends
      XD how along did you read them? I think all the experience for me was good and I will totally recommend them to someone else for sure! This one is like my second favorite of the saga.

      1. It’s really good, it definitely has an older vibe to it and the new characters are very interesting. There’s also a bigger emphasis on diversity, which I really loved. I’ve read The Lightning Thief back in 2015 and since then I continued to read them! ❤

      2. Oh it wasn’t that long ago then. I have heard that! The diversity of characters on a shady tweet for JK xD I like that then, that the characters are more madure! Like they grew up with us :3
