Sadly, this marks the end of the Percy Jackson series. Let me just say, this has quickly become one of my favorites! From beginning to end, the books got increasingly good. Despite minor complaints, this is a great story that anyone can enjoy: young and old alike. From the first chapter and throughout, there was not a dull moment in this book. You got action from beginning to end. I know we are used to some comedic relief or banter between the main characters but there really wasn't any room for that in this book. No complaints here because that definitely should be expected with a war raging and the possibility of the world ending based on the actions of a group of teenagers. More people die and I was at the edge of my seat hoping that all of the main characters survive. I liked the way the story unfolded and the wrap up left me feeling like reading this the whole series was totally worth it.
If I had one complaint it would be that the battle seemed to be a bit choppy. They would start fighting and stop and start again. My one and only wish is that the fighting would have been a little more smoother. That being said, I understand why it had to be broken up that way as well as it can't be expected for them to fight non-stop without at least taking a break to tend to the wounded. Still, it felt a little choppy. There was a couple of nice twists at the end, some of which I saw coming while others were a good surprise. I would definitely recommend this series to anyone who likes young adult and even adults too!
There is a teaser at the very end alluding to another series he is doing set in the same world but around different characters. No doubt I plan on reading that one too.
