The Last Olympian

Percy Jackson and his friend Bekendorf, who are demigods, have a plan to bomb the titan lord Kronos’ ship so he can’t capture Olympus, but the plan fails and Bekendorf dies. He returns home with sad news (everyone expected great news from him). The Titan War starts, and Nico traps Percy for his father Hades because he wants to know about his past (Nico can’t remember anything before he was 8). Percy, son of Poseidon, gets help from Nick, and he bathes in the River Styx for invulnerability.

My favorite character is Percy Jackson because he shows tons of talents, like bathing in the River Styx, though he knew nobody had ever done it other than his friend Luke, son of Hermes, who came in Kronos’ team and became Kronos’ body. Percy also defeated the titans, who no hero demigod, not even Hercules, was able to deafeat.  Book 5 of the Percy Jackson & the Olympians series.  [Pj#1fan]

The Lightning Thief

lightningthiefThis book is about a boy, Percy Jackson, and his crippled friend Grover, who is actually a satyr (half goat, half man).  They go on an adventure with their also-crippled Latin teacher, Mr. Brunner, who is not actually a Latin teacher – he teaches demigods to defend themselves from monsters that will try to kill them, and he isn’t crippled because he can’t walk, but because he is a centaur (half horse, half man).

I really love this book because I usually wonder what it would be like to live back when there were Greek animals, gods, demigods, and people, and this story just gives me a better understanding of what it was like back then. If I never read this book, I would have never watched the movie and written this rave!  Book 1 of the Percy Jackson & the Olympians series.  [SpaceUnicorn1234]

The Titan’s Curse

The Titan's CursePercy joins his friends on a quest to save Annabeth and the goddess Artemis. They fight skeletons, gods, and a boar? What else could go wrong?

So far, this is the most unique book in the Percy Jackson series. There’s still no real new aspect of fantasy from this book. It’s still enjoyable though.  Book 3 of the Percy Jackson & the Olympians series.  [DarkFaerie]
