The last olympianYay! here goes another series, completed.  ”Percy Jackson and the Olympians” was a thrilling and exciting journey and I am glad that I picked this series to read. ”The Last Olympian” is the final installment and it was a real joy ride. For four previous books, I felt like Percy was very BLAH as a hero. He was just following some prophecy doing adventure with his friends but this book showed his heroic qualities, he really stood up for others and supported the team when there was no one to handle the situation.

The time for the final big battle is here. Titan is tricky and cunning he has power to win. Gods are busy fighting Typhon and Kronos is planning to destroy Mount Olympus where no one is guarding. But Percy Jackson and his army of demigods are ready to give their life fighting to protect the Mount Olympus. Will they stand against the power of Titan? What is this prophecy everyone is worried about? 

My rating is 4 out of 5. The ending was perfect and it gave fuel to my thought. It ended with another puzzle which will make the readers to think hard and guess. Soon I will be starting another series by Rick Riordan – The Heroes of Olympus.

Battle of the Labyrinth”The battle of the Labyrinth” is the 4th book in Rick Riordan’s Percy Jackson series. It is written for 8-15 year old and if you are really looking for something bigger then this is not your choice. The vocabulary is very limited and the story has same pattern. But if you are a fan of Greek Mythology then this book is made for you.

Percy Jackson is about to start his freshman year in school and but he doesn’t reach far. On orientation day he somehow gets into fight with demon cheerleaders. There is only one safe place to be in, that is Camp-half blood but there is a war breaking in and soon even the camp will not be safe for half bloods. Kronos’s army is planing to attack the camp through a secret gate of Labyrinth. Percy and his friends has to go for another quest to stop this invasion. But this time quest is dangerous, they have to go into the Labyrinth a sprawling dangerous underground.

Giving it 4 stars would be an injustice to other better books. It was fun to read, full of action but kind of predictable as previous books in the series. And the encounter with kronos was not that exciting so my rating is 3 out of 5. One more book to read in this series.
