Title: The Last Olympian
Author: Rick Riordan
At last, I’ve read The Last Olympian and it did not disappoint. It was my favorite book of the series so far. The book is not so fresh in my mind, but I will say that the plot was intriguing, compelling and new. I never felt bored during this book, never felt a lull in the story. Riordan has written an absolutely perfect ending to a perfect kid’s fantasy series.

Title: The Thirteen Treasures
Author: Michelle Harrison
The Thirteen Treasures was an awesome find. My dad picked it up overseas in England, and I absolutely whizzed through it.
The main character is spending sometime in the summer at her horrible grandmother. It would seem fairly clichéd, except she can see fairies. This little detail makes for dilemmas galore, but she always seems to pull through. It’s also steeped with mystery and has a surprising twist at the end! The story is very original and I can’t wait for the sequel.
Title: The Forest of Hands and Teeth
Author: Carrie Ryan
I have to say that I was completely surprised by The Forest of Hands and Teeth. The characters were rich and dynamic with really developed personalities. Although I’m not much of a zombie fan, the book had a really intriguing apocalyptic aspect that kept me reading.
Price: $16.99, hardcover
Title: Wrath of the Bloodeye
Author: Joseph Delaney
Wrath of the Bloodeye was definitely a page-turner. I’m not sure if it was my favorite of the Last Apprentice books, but it was definitely a welcome addition to the series. I missed the more psychological aspects of the other books, but I did enjoy the characters’ new moral dilemmas.
Again, I'm so sorry for the sad, vague reviews, but here's four more books I would definitely recommend!
