Synopsis

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 from 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.

This is a great book and a good sequel to Mark of Athena. The story is interesting but it feels much longer just because it had so many chapters. There could have been fewer chapters with more pages, but other than that the book is great.

Maturing Demigods, with more power
January 13th, 2014
This book was a great read. The journey of Annabeth and Percy through Tartarus and the journey of the rest of the crew kept me on the edge of my seat. The demigods are maturing and getting stronger, realizing that there is more behind themselves and powers that they have already seen or used. As each demigod grows stronger, it shows that those new powers are definitely going to be needed as they get closer to the final battle against Gaea to save the word.

Pretty good
December 5th, 2013
The book was, as I said in the title, pretty good, Rick Riordan could go more in depth with Nico's side of the story, to add a darker tone, as well as really let you connect to him on a deeper level. Also, Bob, or Iapetus seemed like a very one-dimensional character, making it harder to like him. Piper is quite Frank-ly, pretty useless, and in the next book I'd like to see her actually do something. And last but not least, Tartarus just felt way to easy, Percy and Annabeth made it through just fine, no real character defining moments were had, which made it seem almost like filler, if Percy and Annabeth were affected greatly, and became more reserved, like Nico, this wouldn't have felt like a time killer as much, but in the end, it was a good book.

The House of Hades review
October 20th, 2013
This was a very good book with riveting stories hidden inside. Showing kids to face their fears, not be afraid of who they are, and to stand up for each other. Accepting people for who they are is something our society struggles with. Riordan incorporates all of this into his book. Jason realized that Nico was "gay", but this brought Jason closer to Nico, as Jason started to realize Nico's problems. So, not only does Riordan write an extremely good book in The House of Hades, but he puts his resolutions to real-world problems in it as well.
