All year the half-bloods have been preparing for battle against the Titans, knowing the odds of victory are grim. Kronos's army is stronger than ever, and with every god and half-blood he recruits, the evil Titan's power only grows. While the Olympians struggle to contain the rampaging monster Typhon, Kronos begins his advance on New York City, where Mount Olympus stands virtually unguarded. Now it's up to Percy Jackson and an army of young demigods to stop the Lord of Time. In this momentous final book in the New York Times best-selling Percy Jackson and the Olympians series, the long-awaited 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.

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...

Okay, so, I think this last book was just COMPLETELY INSANE. I didn’t like Nico in The Battle of the Labyrinth but I liked him in this one. Also, the Gods, like before are all just being so completely unreasonable. [spoiler] Like, did Hades really need to try and kidnap Percy so that Nico could fu...
Percy and the gang certainly have come a long way since The Lightning Thief. I waited for a long time before reading starting this series, because I tend to avoid books that get a lot of hype. But eventually, I caved and read it. And I'm so glad I did. Some of the battle scenes got dull after a wh...
