MOST PEOPLE GET PRESENTS ON THEIR SIXTEENTH BIRTHDAY, I GET A PROPHECY THAT COULD SAVE OR DESTROY THE WORLD.

It happens when you’re the son of Poseidon, God of the Sea. According to an ancient prophecy, I turn sixteen and the fate of the entire world is on me. But no pressure.

Now Kronos, Lord of the Titans, is beginning his attack on New York City. And the dreaded monster Typhon is also heading our way. So it’s me and forty of my demigod friends versus untold evil…

GENERAL THOUGHTS

Wooow! It was damn good!! Plus it has that perfect ending to it!

I love Percy’s wish…, it was just amazing! And that opened a possibility for things to change for the better with everybody! Ahhh it was just perfect!

This book wrapped up this series perfectly and gave hints to what would happen in the Heroes of Olympus series! I definitely have a total girl crush on Annabeth… I’m so glad I finished this series and I can’t wait to start the Heroes of Olympus (which I am anxious to see if the writing changes!)

But what makes me looove this book from the start till the end is that, with the prophecy, you kind of start expecting stuff to happen but they always turn out different! You always get surprised that things happened the way they did!

Never thought I could love so much to read a middle grade book, as I loved to read Percy Jackson! If you haven’t grabbed this series yet, you definitely should!! 

!WARNING: review with SPOILERS ahead!!

THE CENTRAL IDEA

The end of the world started when a pegasus landed on the hood of my car. Up until then, I was having a great afternoon.

Yeah the started already pretty much like the others, Percy’s life is nothing but calm right?

So, all year Percy’s camp has been trying to prepare themselves to the big battle against the Titans. But they also know that Kronos’ army is stronger than ever, and he has been gathering some minor gods and demigods on his side, and that makes his power grow.

Kronos made a distraction for Poseidon, he has his own battle, and the other gods have to defeat Typhon, leaving Mount Olympus free.

Percy Jackson and the other demigods have to protect the city and Mount Olympus!

IMPORTANT CHARACTERS

Percy

“I don’t recommend shadow travel if you’re scared of:
a) The dark
b) Cold shivers up your spine
c) Strange noises
d) Going so fast you feel like your face is peeling off
In other words, I thought it was awesome.”

Percy is now as strong as Luck, thanks to Nico’s idea. And he learned some new tricks with Mrs. O’Leary that I thought that were awesome!!

Nico

“With great power… comes great need to take a nap. Wake me up later.”

He turned up to be super strong, more than he already seemed since he is technically a kid… He is so cute ❤

Tyson

“Daddy will explain. Come, he is blowing up monsters.”

He is just so cute, sensible but still powerful (well he is a cyclops…).

Annabeth

“You saved the world,” annabeth said.
“We saved the world.”
“And Rachel is the new Oracle, which means she won’t be dating anybody.”
“You don’t sound disappointed,” I noticed.
Annabeth shrugged. “Oh, I don’t care.”
“Uh-huh.”

Finally!!! I knew it! But I was super afraid for her in one part of the battle, unf… AH I love Annabeth, that’s all I have to say!

Rachel

I really like Rachel, just not with Percy after all that Percy and Annabeth had been through…  And As said in #Annabeth, she turned into the new oracle with is great, because it means I will be able to see more of her in the next books! YEY

Luke

The big villain finally decides he doesn’t see Annabeth has a sister? no, no, no! Don’t even!  … I am super happy how it turned out!

PLOT DEVELOPMENT

This book had a lot of action, like it was almost totally the all book about the battle 😮 But, in the end… Ah that end was just amazing!! Percy, aren’t you romantic??!!

THINGS I LIKED

  • The Romance in the end finally. ❤
  • Luke’s part on the story.
  • Percy’s wish was beautiful and thoughtful.

THE THINGS I DIDN’T LIKE

✘ I haven’t seen Kronos as that powerful, but maybe that’s just me 😛 

FINAL WORDS

I love this book! I love this series! I love this world and these characters! And I am super anxious to start the Heroes of Olympus series!!

What was your favorite book ??  – I loved so many of them for so many reasons, but the most difficult choice for me is between the Sea of Monsters and the Battle of the Labyrinth, but probably the Battle of the Labyrinth, since I feel that a lot of characters unite in that book and the labyrinth itself its creepily amazing 😀
