YA Review: "The Last Olympian" by Rick Riordan (rated 5 stars)

by Rick Riordan

The final quest of Percy Jackson did not disappoint. Again, Riordan takes us in with a flying start! Literally! If you liked the first four books in the series, you will enjoy this one as well.
Percy and his friends again go on a quest but this time it is Percy’s final battle. “The Last Olympian” is packed with battles and death and espionage. It’s non-stop fun! Definitely worth reading.
I also want to add that the kids were clammering to get their hands on this one. We had a list of about 15 kids once they found out that we had the book. I am not sure what other libaries do with up and coming popular books but we are adding announcements to our school bulletins so that students come in. It is really exciting to see how enthusiastic students are with books outside their required reading lists.
