Percy Jackson and the Last Olympian (Book 5)

Written by Rick Riordan

Part of the Percy Jackson Series

Percy Jackson and the Last Olympian (Book 5) Synopsis

The Last Olympian: the fifth book in Rick Riordan's Percy Jackson series. The fifth awesome adventure in the top-ten bestselling Percy Jackson series - now in paperback. Most people get presents on their sixteenth birthday. I get a prophecy that could save or destroy the world. That's how it is when you're the son of Poseidon, God of the Sea. According to an ancient prophecy, bad things will happen when I turn sixteen - because I'm the one who gets to decide the fate of the entire world. But no pressure. This is the one where Kronos, Lord of the Titans, is beginning his attack on New York City, where Mount Olympus stands virtually unguarded. Oh, and the dreaded (and not to mention enormous) monster Typhon is also heading our way. So it's me and forty of my demigod friends versus untold evil . . . Praise for the Percy Jackson series: 'Witty and inspired. Gripping, touching and deliciously satirical...This is most likely to succeed Rowling. Puffin is on to a winner' - Amanda Craig, The Times 'Puns, jokes and subtle wit, alongside a gripping storyline' - Telegraph 'Perfectly paced, with electrifying moments chasing each other like heartbeats' - New York Times Rick Riordan is an award-winning mystery writer.
