Noor (noor_a) | 197 comments I basically read these books back to back -the gap between the books was around 5 seconds? So yeah I was hooked! :) I can see that its aimed for younger teens, but I still enjoyed the series. There was a lot of action and fighting and it was really enjoyable and fun to read!

I heard of the Heros of Olympus -Lost hero and the other two. But I don't know if I should read them. I mean I definitely miss the books. The same characters are supposed to show up as secondary characters. I've heard that people disliked it because it ruined the Percy Jackson books for them- apparently these weren't as good- so I don't know, its on my to-read shelf I'll have to read them some day.


Zohal I loved the end of this book

I liked them beacuse I loved the humour in Percy Jackson, and I really liked the world, I find it slightly annoying that Percy isn't as prominent as he is in the other books but I still can't wait for the next one!


Jack | 113 comments I really liked this series, and I think the Last Olympian was one of the best books in it. Riordan did a great job of wrapping things up in it, and also, the major fight was really interesting to read about, especially with all the twists that occurred during it.

Those people who say that are crazy, Heroes of Olympus was just as good, if not better! A lot of things from the first series are answered, like why California is such a bad place for Greeks. Old characters are in it, Percy and Annabeth are still MAIN characters, but Rick does take the first book to introduce the new characters. Such as the amazing Leo Valdez <3 but anyways back to this book.

I LOVED Last Olympian! I swear each book I read is the BEST and then I'll read is new book and it'll will turn out EVEN BETTER than the last! I don't know how he does it >.< The twist endings, Luke, Nico, Percabeth, even Rachel, just awesome <3


Beatrice Masaluñga (beatricemasalunga) That underwater kiss :))) haha!

T. Sae-Low Finished the whole series a little while back and I have to say it's one of my favorites thus far. I thought the movie wasn't very good to be honest, but Riordan did a fantastic job with his novels. I like how he paced his stories, especially The Last Olympian. Tyson's such a great character too! Great inspiration for my own characters and writing as well.


Robyn | 34 comments This is my favourite book in the series!
I really love Percy, and Percabeth : )


Janna (mzhyde) | 469 comments Loved this book. I really liked how Riordan described the battles. It's a nice conclusion to the series.
