    This GN was the best out of the series. It tried giving us a little more of that emotional attachment to the characters the other GNs omitted. Even though, in my opinion, it came a little late. The art was beautiful and I even found a funny little Easter Egg! I read these graphic novels to once again familiarise myself with the story so I would be better prepared before reading The Heroes of Olympus series.

    There may have been some minor issues with the last edition of the graphic novel adaptation series of Percy Jackson, but otherwise WOAH, I stand by my statement that if the films were exactly like the graphic novels, they honestly wouldn't disappoint (but standards are also pretty low lol). The art is better than the last 4, the emotions were there, and the action was awesome.

The art is better than the last 4, the emotions were there, and the action was awesome. But, like I said, it has some issues... *spoilers below* The emotions were there, but the pacing was off because of how fast everything had to go so the full impact was never really there. The most emotional moments had to be squished in to make sure everything important can be shown. This is a minor detail, but the detail of the deceased campers' camp necklaces around the minotaur horns was missing. I remember getting literal chills the first time I read the scene (and every reread since) and Percy's fury feels so just. Dionysus did not tell Percy to watch out for his son. Sad to see that not in there And lastly, but most importantly, THERE IS NO UNDERWATER KISS???!! I understand and forgave not having the volcano kiss in BotL but NO ICONIC UNDERWATER KISS?? THAT IS SUCH A MISSED OPPERTUNITY Otherwise I fully recommend the graphic novel series for people who have read the series and need a refresher. But, if you are thinking about starting with the graphic novels, go ahead, but you're missing out on a lot of good content.

It left out some parts I was mad about (the underwater kiss) but overall it was pretty good. I just love Percy. If you're missing him I definitely recommend picking this up. I still cried at the parts where Beckendorf and Silena died, but whatever. If you like/love Percy come talk to me in the comments. :) I have had this book on hold since March 27!!!!!

    Nice adaptation! I wish the final battle scenes weren't rushed but in general I enjoyed this graphic novel! I like how the humor was still included and I liked the illustrations. Nice adaptation!

    I think The Last Olympian is the favorite of many people, myself included. There was so much action and deaths :( but I loved actually getting to see it all. There were so many monsters in this one and it was great to get those visuals. *Notes in updates

    I think I've figured out one of the reasons I don't like these graphic novels adaptations: they don't really hold the entire story, just the main plot (and even then there's stuff taken out). I mean, Battle of the Labyrinth and The Last Olympian have a much more appealing art style in my opinion, but that doesn't really make up for the fact that a healthy chunk of the story is still missing.

I mean, Battle of the Labyrinth and The Last Olympian have a much more appealing art style in my opinion, but that doesn't really make up for the fact that a healthy chunk of the story is still missing. For this book, it started with Rachel and Percy hanging out and Percy thinking or talking about the fact that he's now sixteen, so on top of whatever mysterious prophecy he is destined to fulfill, he also can now drive. Hooray for Percy and his driving. Unfortunately, this hangout is interrupted by Charles Beckendorf (rip) on Blackjack landing on Paul Blofis' Prius (i'm so glad i can remember these insignificant details and not anything genuinely important) and telling Percy that it's go time on their super special secret plan. Rachel kisses Percy (on the cheek or something, which of course led to years of fandom-wide Rachel-hating because why not), and Charles is all '👀 Annabeth better not find out', because in Battle of the Labyrinth, Annabeth kissed Percy. If you just read the graphic novel, you wouldn't know that, because it was completely glossed over, for some reason? But in this book, it starts when Percy and Charles are already on the boat, towards the end of the (failed) mission, and it's like boat... luke.... kronos... charles... water... rachel kiss?... percy sad... silena sad... and so on. It's super vague, what even was going on in the beginning? Tell me how exactly a person reading that with no context is supposed to understand that. It's ridiculous. There are some things in the book that I did like. For example, I thought it was funny when Nico was all like "You've never shadowtraveled before?" like no Nico, Percy has not shadowtraveled before. Where would he have gotten the chance. I know you're trying to win over his heart and everything but you gotta try to think these things through. That might have been the only thing I really remember enjoying in this story though. Hm. Weird. Anyway, it continues glossing over points, to continue using Nico as an example, there's this whole thing where he's trying to figure out what happened to his mom. He tries to bargain with Hades to find out more, and Hades is all "Yea sure, but you gotta bring Percy Jackson here and then I'll spill the deets" (the tea, if you will. i won't, because can you imagine hades saying 'spill the tea'? hell no) Nico then proceeds to do as Hades says, getting Percy to go into the Underworld (I think around the time he took a plunge in the River Styx, but it's been a while since I've read the books) and then the Furies snatch up Percy, throw him in Underworld jail, and Hades tells Nico nearly nothing about his mom, (partially because Persephone was standing nearby all like >:( because that's what happens when you talk to your illegitimate son about an affair you had with a mortal several decades ago in front of your wife. She kinda gets a little >:( ) and Nico snatches Percy out of Underworld jail, Percy does the Styx thing, (i think. again, i haven't read the book in years, so i could be wrong) and the story goes on. But the graphic novel only shows Nico taking Percy to the Styx, Percy getting a power up, and beating up Hades' forces. The graphic novel does not give a shit about Nico and his problems. The book kinda goes on jumping over smaller events in favor of the larger, over-arcing story, which I suppose is fine, but part of the reason I like some of the smaller events is that it helps humanize the characters a little more. Percy trying to comfort Silena about Charles' death and eating her dad's cardboard-flavored bonbons (because he had nothing against cardboard) helps humanize Percy and Silena. Basically what I'm saying is that these graphic novel adaptations and the characters in them feel like cardboard cutouts of the actual story itself, which although is not perfect, does kinda humanize the characters. So that's something.

    So I had planned on rereading all of PJO last semester but didn't end up getting to The Last Olympian over winter break as I had originally planned but here we are, we finally made it, TRIUMPHANT A glorious end to a glorious series, I think the graphic novel versions are gorgeous (a definite improvement from the titan's curse), I'll never not love Percy Jackson.

    I feel like the pace was a little too fast and it didn't reflect the scale and difficulty of the war. They also skipped over some parts or oversimplified it. Still a satisfying read and I loved that the art style emphasized more of Percy and other character's distinct features, even though I still think it could be better.

    The Last Olympian by Rick Riordan was a graphic novel based on the original series of the book The Last Olympian. The overall interpretation of the original series was realistic, but did not have the same visual effects.

The overall interpretation of the original series was realistic, but did not have the same visual effects. I gave the book three stars because of its unrealistic and childish feel especially when compared to the original series. I would not recommend this book unless you are a big fan of graphic novels. Many of the major scenes and battles from the original book were shortened to a page or two making those important parts of the book seem pointless. Although the scenes were sub-par, the characters filled the roles of who they were originally which helped in understanding the plot. The story line of the graphic novel followed Percy Jackson and his quest to defeat the ruler of the underworld, Kronos. During the quest, Jackson defeated many enemies and made many discoveries about himself. Jackson had made many hard choices which helped him grow as a character. Foster’s theme of a quest was prevalent as Jackson learned who he was and what he was fighting for. The quest was the main plot of the story as Jackson needed to fight his way through many monsters to eventually defeat Kronos. Many relationships were created and destroyed because of Kronos, but in the end, everything turned out fine. Overall, I thought that the graphic novel was boring and I would not read one again unless forced. Graphic novels feel like a children's book to me and the graphic novel I read felt like a crappy spin off from the original The Last Olympian. There were some parts of the book I had enjoyed reading, but without reading the original book I don't know if I would have been able to follow the storyline all that well.

    It was good. Not as great as the actual book, but good. The drawings were beautiful and I loved the summary of the story they did. It was my first graphic novel of the PJ’s books and I honestly expected more, like I was going to see everything that was written in the book as drawings but this didn’t obviously happened. They cut a lot of things but the main story remains. Some very important scenes were also rushed but I think this happens when you adapt a book into a graphic novel. Anyway, as I sai It was good.

    I find myself in these moments from time to time when I just want to sit back and visit with my old friends from Camp Half-Blood. So, since I’ve previously decided to not read ToA or Magnus Chase because of personal convictions, here I am, taking a trip down nostalgia lane. This isn’t a replacement for the book, in case you’re wondering. It skims over a lot of the battle scenes, and probably other important things that I forgot since it’s been ages since I read the actual book.

This isn’t a replacement for the book, in case you’re wondering. It skims over a lot of the battle scenes, and probably other important things that I forgot since it’s been ages since I read the actual book. However, what this adaptation really excels at is the powerful character moments. Beckendorf’s death* hit me a lot harder this time around, and Silena and Clarisse’s bond is just... 😭 As far as visuals go, almost all of the characters look exactly as I pictured them! (Even Mrs. O’Leary! ❤️❤️)Which is a huge thing for me. The cover is also stunning (no, not that lousy excuse for a cover Goodreads has posted). Some of the frames seemed a bit rushed and sloppy to me, but the other, more detailed ones made it up for me. Content: Pretty mild. Scary monsters, of course, and some rather gross (but undetailed) scenes like, for example, Prometheus. In short, if you’re a fan already, you’ll probably love this. However, if you’re not familiar with PJO already, read the books first. Otherwise you’ll wonder why Tyson shouts “Peanut butter!” for no apparent reason. *If you’re yelling “Spoilers!” remember... that does take place in the first chapter, so...

    I already knew what was going to happen in this story – I’ve read the novel that it was based on. But it was still beautiful and stunning. Almost impossible to forget. There is just something so beautiful about this graphic novel. It’s a lot lighter than some of the graphic novels that I tend to read. It’s also great to see a graphic novel interpretation that actually envisions things like I did. It didn’t ruin my perceptions by being something so totally different.

Spending the night reading this graphic novel made me want to go to my shelves and grab yet another Rick Riordan novel. I kind of need to finish / start the Kane Chronicles, so it’s definitely something that is insanely tempting… but I probably need to finish some of the series that I have already started. I found the Last Olympian novel a bit of a darker storyline than the rest of the series. Yet, somehow, this was quite a nice, light book. Both in the gorgeous colours and the way that the storyline is set out. The more horrible parts don’t take up a large portion of the storyline, but they do still feature. In a way that makes the tale a little more uplifting and bright than what I was expecting. This was a great, easy finish to the graphic novel adaptations. It was a good way to spend an hour just drifting back into an amazing world that I’m not all that keen on leaving most of the time.

    3.5/5 stars I enjoyed the art once again. The characters were very distinctive as well as the gods. It also did a good job touching on a lot of different parts of the book. However, it was like we were in a speed run through the book, so none of the exciting moments of people arriving or different smaller fights mattered as much. They mentioned some of them, but in such brief contexts that it seemed unimportant.

    Love it. I just finished this book again. There are many series in the Percy Jackson series in this order. Percy Jackson and the Olympians, Kane Chronicles, Heroes of Olympus, Magnus Chase and the Gods of Asgard, Trials of Apollo. The Trials of Apollo and Magnus Chase and the Gods of Asgard happen at the same time so you need to read them at the same time. But The Trials of Apollo is longer it and is still going on. There are also add ons to each series.

    3.5 stars The final book of the Percy Jackson story, in graphic novel format. Obviously a graphic novel can never convey everything that a print novel can; there are so many fewer pages, no written descriptions, etc. With that said, however, those who have been reading the graphic novels will enjoy this conclusion to the series. It is action-packed and has all the familiar characters in clear, colorful, easy to read panels. If you have the others, you need this one too.

    I think this is my favorite book in the series. I'm sad we didn't get some scenes, but again, I understand why they weren't there. The end battle felt too short, and I'm very disappointed that NOT ONCE in this graphic novel adaptation did Percy call Annabeth Wise Girl! She called him Seaweed Brain, but he never returned the favor! :( I think this is my favorite book in the series. I'm sad we didn't get some scenes, but again, I understand why they weren't there.
