Fun and funny. But too long.
(Also, see review of previous book.) ( )

I love Rick Riordan's writing style and The Heroes of Olympus series is my second favorite of all his series. I love mythology and he does a great job of bring any and all mytholgy to life in a fresh and new way. I find the characters to be engaging and to feel really real. I love how he weaves the mythology into modern times so you feel like you are learning something as you are being entertained. ( )

After reading both "Heroes of Olympus" and "Percy J. and the Olympians" series, I'm still liking the first series (and specifically the first book - "Lightning Thief") the best. I don't care for the multiple narrator formats used in the 2nd series, plus it's getting too difficult for me to remember all the different storylines from all the different characters. I'm tempted to say Riordan has taken a good and clever idea and really beat it to death. ( )

Through all their trials so far, the demigods are finding that defeating Gaea is certainly going to be more difficult than they ever imagined. The Feast of Spes is rapidly approaching, and the window if time they have to stop her is closing. At the same time, their fellow demigods of Camp Half-Blood and Camp Jupiter are on the bring of an all-out battle, something it seems they will have no way of stopping from where they stand. They've retrieved the Athena Parthenos, which could serve as a vital weapon in stopping Gaea, but it is also the one thing that could stop the war brewing at home. The team knows they need to split up--a couple of people heading back to Long Island with the statue while the rest continue on to Athens to put an end to Gaea's attempt to fully awaken and to once again save the gods and the world...

I don't toss around the phrase "epic conclusion" very lightly, but that's certainly what we have here. This is an action-packed final chapter in a story that's been brewing from all the way back in The Lightning Thief. What I also really liked about this installment is that the rest of the demigods (even some who aren't on the crew) get their moments to shine. We don't get pages and pages on them, but readers get enough to understand them better, to cheer for them, and to become even further immersed in this incredible world that Rick Riordan has created.

I've always enjoyed these books as someone who loves mythology (have since as far as I can remember) and fantasy, while also enjoying a good YA book now and then. While this chapter has come to a close, I'm glad that Riordan is continuing with new series and keeping the spirit of urban-fantasy-inspired-by-mythology alive. ( )

This book was absolutely amazing, a perfect finale to a great series! Percy Jackson and the Olympians, and The Heroes of Olympus are must reads. I don't know where I would be know without this series ( )

Seven half-bloods shall answer the call,
To storm or fire the world must fall.
An oath to keep with a final breath,
And foes bear arms to the Doors of Death.
To my wonderful readers.
Sorry about that apology for that last cliffhanger.
I'll try to avoid cliffhangers in this book.
Well, except for maybe a few small ones...
because I love you guys.
