Most people get presents on their sixteenth birthday. I get a prophecy that could save or destroy the world.
That's how it is when you're the son of Poseidon, God of the Sea. According to an ancient prophecy, bad things will happen when I turn sixteen - because I'm the one who gets to decide the fate of the entire world. But no pressure.
This is the one where Kronos, Lord of the Titans, is beginning his attack on New York City, where Mount Olympus stands virtually unguarded. Oh, and the dreaded (and not to mention enormous) monster Typhon is also heading our way. So it's me and forty of my demigod friends versus untold evil . . .

The source of all the trouble on Earth and the reason why the Titans had been able to tap into the demi-gods’ ...
Overall this was a satisfying end to the series. There's so much action, and it's so good. The series isn't perfect by any means, but it was definitely worth the reread. The rest of this post is just a list of rambling notes/questions/observations so it's all going under a cut. Potential spoiler...
Super quick "review" for a book that took me way too long to get through (no fault of the book's, I assure you). A mostly satisfying end to an entertaining series. Perhaps I shouldn’t call it the end, though, as the last chapter sets up the sequel series. Percy’s a nice guy, but I’m a little tired o...
A great conclusion to a great series. From beginning to end, there is action and you are constantly on the edge of your seat to read what will happen next. Now you get to see all the campers in action and character development, not only from the main characters but also side characters.
