Another amazing adventure, a new look on the war waging between Gods and Titans, where the final stand is upheld by the bravest of demigods.

As it is the final book of the series, the plot took some pretty big twists, making the story even more dynamic and enthralling. We find our favourite half-blood heroes fighting a real war, where all may be lost in a blink of an eye.

The streets of New York turn into a battle for the fate of the world as Percy and his friends struggle to uphold the resistance. The son of Poseidon must take the chance, decide wisely and fight valiantly if the reign of the Olympians, the existence of mortals, is to be preserved.

And while all Hades is breaking loose, the young fighters must face things such as betrayal, mourning, jealousy and pride; they must learn to put those feelings aside and come together if they are to save the day. And that, for temperamental demigods, may turn into a more difficult task than fighting the war for the Olympians.

An amazing finale to the series for modern heroes. A definite must-read.
