“My mother made a squeaking sound that might of been either "yes" or "help".
Poseidon took it as a yes and came in.
Paul was looking back and forth between us, trying to read our expressions.
Finally he stepped forward.
"Hi, I'm Paul Blofis."
Poseidon raised an eyebrow and then shook his hand.
"Blowfish, did you say?"
"Ah, no. Blofis, actually."
"Oh, I see," Poseidon said. "A shame. I quite like blowfish. I am Poseidon."
"Poseidon? That's an interesting name."
"Yes, I like it. I've gone by other names, but I do prefer Poseidon."
"Like the god of the sea."
"Very much like that, yes"
"Well!" My mother interrupted. "Um, were so glad you could drop by. Paul, this is Percy's father."
"Ah." Paul nodded, though he didn't look real pleased. "I see."
Poseidon smiled at me. "There you are, my boy. And Tyson, hello, son!"
"Daddy!" Tyson [shouted]...
Paul's jaw dropped. He stared at my mother. "Tyson is..."
"Not mine," she promised. "It's a long story.”

The Last Olympian is the fifth and last book of the fantasy-adventure Percy Jackson book series, based on Greek mythology (not Roman). I have read the whole book, however this was a little while ago and I read it very fast because of my free time. I didn’t choose a book in the past 2 months because I haven’t finished it, and it’s hard to find the time to read.
The book “The Last Olympian” is focused on Percy Jackson, along with the Half-bloods who have been preparing and training for the battle against the titans, even when knowing their chances are low. Kronos and his army grows stronger as they approach New York City, where Mount Olympus stands, practically unguarded.

A main theme in The Last Olympian is that there will always be a time in life where we have to make a difficult decision. Whether it’s good or bad, we will never know the possible outcome until the choice is made.
Throughout the book, the greaty prophecy is frequently mentioned, and it is also an important symbol…
Originally from inside the book:
Artemis015. “The First Great Prophecy from PJatO by Artemis015 on DeviantART.” The First Great Prophecy from PJatO by Artemis015 on DeviantART. DeviantART, 2012. Web. 14 Nov. 2014.
At first, Percy doesn’t fully understand this, and thinks it is aimed torwards him…until the time comes where the prophecy would come true, and he would have to make a difficult choice. Once he makes that choice, he realises it isn’t aimed torwards him, but to Luke, and that he isn’t the true hero to defeat the titan lord of time.
Overall, I liked the “epicness” of this book along with a unique ending, different to the common endings in normal fantasy/adventure books. In fact, I was happier it was more deep and interesting than a typical happy ending.
