The Last Olympian by Rick Rioridan

The Last Olympian (Percy Jackson and the Olympians, #5) The Last Olympian by Rick Riordan


My rating: 4 of 5 stars
This books wraps up the series well, as far as the general plot goes, but there were a few things that didn't flow well for me. The big one I don't get is Typhon, (which is so close to Typhoon it kills me.) How does this monster put up a fight against all of the gods, and not fight against the Titan's as well? Maybe I missed something there, but this guy seems out of place...

The Battle of the Labyrinth by Rick Rioridan

The Battle of the Labyrinth (Percy Jackson and the Olympians, #4) The Battle of the Labyrinth by Rick Riordan


My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I said it 5 minutes ago, and I'll say it again, this was a great series. I like the twists it is taking, and I feel that this installment offered a bit more of a fantasy spin on the mythical subject matter/characters.

The Titan's Curse by Rick Rioridan

The Titan's Curse (Percy Jackson and the Olympians, #3) The Titan's Curse by Rick Riordan


My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I loved this whole series, so I think it earns a good mark all the way around. One unresolved problem for me as I read through it: The age of the main character and his feats/love interests don't seem to match. I just can't picture a 14 year old kid fighting of monsters with a sword after a few weeks of training...

I know, it is just fiction. But things like this bother me when they are so blatant, and the author makes no rationalization.
