Last Olympian, The (Percy Jackson & the Olympians, Book 5): Reviewed

Author:Rick Riordan
Reading Level (Conceptual):Children 8 and up
Reading Level (Vocabulary):Children 8 and up
Year of publication:2009

A great ending to a great series, which is about a kid named Percy who discovers he's the son of Poseidon (the ancient Greek sea god) and that all of the "mythology" he learned in school is real.

In this book, Percy must fulfill a prophecy and save the world... no big deal.

Anyway, very fun. Definitely a stay up to finish the last page book (I actually stayed up late to start it, then stayed up even later to finish it.)

I like how in the end, the world goes on: it's not just "and they all lived happily ..."
