The Last Olympian by Rick Riordan
Throughout the Percy Jackson and the Olympians series, Riordan has used his sense of humor to appeal to readers of every age. He blends Greek mythology and modern culture to create a gripping story. Not only are readers pulled into the action but they are learning about ancient history at the same time. Riordan's book details the triumph of a mere mortal over the Titan lord, Kronos. In any respect, The Last Olympian makes a wonderful conclusion to the series.
