The Last Olympian by Rick Riordan - ESSENTIAL

The Last Olympian (The Olympians, #5) by Rick Riordan illustrated by Orpheus Collar and Antoine Dode, 128 pages. GRAPHIC NOVEL  Disney Hyperion, 2019.  $22  

Content: Language: G; Mature Content: G; Violence: PG.  



Percy and his friends are gathering to fight a big battle against Kronos.  As Percy tries to figure out more about Luke (who Kronos is inhabiting his body), he learns about Luke’s prophecy from Luke’s mother. Percy learns about the true hero of the prophecy and is surprised to learn that it isn’t him.  As the monsters gather behind Kronos, Percy gathers his friends and they stave off Kronos, receiving accolades from the Greek gods. 

I love the Olympian series because of the perfect blend of action and character development.  This graphic novel stays true to the story and I enjoyed the amazing illustrations.  If you have readers who like Percy Jackson, this graphic novel series is a fantastic addition to your library.
