 All year the half-bloods have been preparing for battle against the Titans, knowing the odds are against them. Kronos is stronger than ever, and with every god and half-blood he recruits, his power only grows.

In this momentous final book in the "New York Times" best-selling series, the 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.

This has to be one of the best series out there. I really love Percy and his friends. This is the final book but Riordan has another spin off series for the Heroes of Olympus. I can't wait to sink my teeth into that one.

This last book of these adventures however wraps up the story nicely. I hate that we lose some of the characters we have grown to know over this series. This battle is as epic as the original Greek mythology.

Once again Riordan takes the wonderful Greek gods and mythology and puts his new and modern spin on things. I was swept up in every page. I quickly and eagerly as I was anxious to see what happened next.
