Description

All year the half-bloods have been preparing for battle against the Titans, knowing the odds of a victory are grim. Kronos's army is stronger than ever, and with every god and half-blood he recruits, the evil Titan's power only grows. While the Olympians struggle to contain the rampaging monster Typhon, Kronos begins his advance on New York City, where Mount Olympus stands virtually unguarded. Now it's up to Percy Jackson and an army of young demigods to stop the Lord of Time. In this momentous final book in the New York Times best-selling series, the long-awaited prophecy surrounding Percy's sixteenth birthday unfolds. And as the battle for Western civilization rages on the streets of Manhattan, Percy faces a terrifying suspicion that he may be fighting against his own fate.

Professional reviews

"The fifth volume of the Percy Jackson adventure series follows the travails of the 15-year-old half-human son of the Greek god Poseidon. The dyslexic, hyperactive teen takes on the curse of Achilles's heel, discovers newfound powers, visits the kingdom of Poseidon, and finds romance as a battle mounts against Kronos. With a touch of teenage geekiness to his voice, Jesse Bernstein is able to master Percy's sense of angst. While his voice is youthful, however, Bernstein lacks the speed and energy to allow listeners to completely suspend disbelief, and his tone lapses into a whining quality that some may find off-putting.
