"The Last Olympian" by Rick Riordan
The final book, and the conclusion, to the "Percy Jackson and the Olympian" series by Rick Riordan. This was one of those series that I wish that I had discovered during my teenage years rather then now as a adult since I feel like the reading experience would of been far greater. I love the story premise and how Riordan created this entire series based around the gods from Greek mythology, I enjoyed the humor, I enjoyed the overall story, but it is all just a tad juvenile for me. I was hoping for a repeat of the Harry Potter series where the books grow and mature with the characters, and Percy does go from a twelve year old to a sixteen year old over the course of these five books but the books never seem to develop in a maturity level as far as the tone of the books go. I still vastly enjoyed this series however, and this book had a very satisfying conclusion where everything was nicely wrapped up. I find myself very interested in reading the mythology where Riordan's stories originated from, as well as Norse and Roman mythology as well. I do plan on eventually reading Riordan's other book series.
