The Last Olympian, Book V and the last book in the series Percy Jackson and the Olympians, is a rip roaring finish to this ‘quintilogy’ – that may be a word, or not.
Most of the characters, even a couple who have died are back, and we get to meet gods and goddesses we’ve only heard about before. Percy and Annabeth are, of course, front and center. Rachel Elizabeth Dare’s role and relationship with Percy is clarified, there are even more monsters, including Typhon, who is marching across the United States spreading devastation – while Kronos / Luke and his troops are working to take Manhattan and then Olympus. Imagine everyone in Manhattan just falling asleep where they are – well, it’s happened, and Percy, Annabeth and the other Half Bloods have to fix it.
A more-than-satisfying, actually terrific ending – and, FYI, the good guys win (using ‘guys’ generically. : >
