The House of Hades

Author: Rick Riordan 
Pages: 597 
Publisher: Hyperion 
Format: Hardcover 
My Rating: 5 out of 5 stars

Summary (from Goodreads): At the conclusion of The Mark of Athena, Annabeth and Percy tumble into a pit leading straight to the Underworld. The other five demigods have to put aside their grief and follow Percy’s instructions to find the mortal side of the Doors of Death. If they can fight their way through the Gaea’s forces, and Percy and Annabeth can survive the House of Hades, then the Seven will be able to seal the Doors both sides and prevent the giants from raising Gaea. But, Leo wonders, if the Doors are sealed, how will Percy and Annabeth be able to escape? 


They have no choice. If the demigods don’t succeed, Gaea’s armies will never die. They have no time. In about a month, the Romans will march on Camp Half-Blood. The stakes are higher than ever in this adventure that dives into the depths of Tartarus.



I couldn't even formulate a coherent thought after finishing this book. Seriously guys, after reading and loving all of Rick Riordan's books so far, I have nothing else to say but this: go out, get yourself a copy of any one of his books, and prepare to be hooked.

I really can't talk about what happens (hence the lack of summary) but I will tell you this: the little soft spot in my heart for Nico expanded to twenty times its size and I really just wanted to reach into the pages and give him a hug. The kid had to go through so much, and I really hope he gets a happy ending.

I am counting down the seconds days until The Blood of Olympus. Until then I'll probably be re-reading the entire series for the fifth time. If anyone has read it and wants to fangirl with me (or just talk spoilers, I don't mind), let me know in the comments! 

And seriously, if you haven't already: get yourself one of Rick Riordan's books. I promise you will not regret it.
