Another amazing novel by Rick Riordan Cant wait to start the next novel and see how this all ends But above all, I just want this book to come out or at least have any spoilers I mean, I m dying here That last book left me in a jumble of emotions and feels and thoughts But I realized something worse Since the House of Hades is the second to last book in the series, I predict there will be a big cliffhanger You think this is bad Just wait till we read this book Yes, I acknowledge the fact that we have to wait to read this bo But above all, I just want this book to come out or at least have any spoilers I mean, I m dying here That last book left me in a jumble of emotions and feels and thoughts But I realized something worse Since the House of Hades is the second to last book in the series, I predict there will be a big cliffhanger You think this is bad Just wait till we read this book Yes, I acknowledge the fact that we have to wait to read this book for practically a year.But on a different and much happier note The title of the book is House of Hades Could this mean NICO I think I would cry and hyperventilate if it s Nico s perspective My heart wouldn t be able to take it My undying love fascination of his character is just so deep, and I swear, I just want him to get out of that damned jar Screw Team Percy or Team Jason, I m Team Nico DiAngelo I wanna date meet the Ghost King Speaking of which, Nico better be okay and he better stay alive and Rick Riordan, don t you dare lay a finger on Nico If you do, I swear, you better sleep with one eye open.Percabeth update Rick has confirmed that Annabeth and Percy are alive How they re doing though No clue But I expect a lot of romance cause what better place to spend time with your boyfriend than in hell view spoiler Direct quote from RickThe one thing I can promise regarding The House of Hades SPOILER ALERT At the end of Mark of Athena , Nico senses that Percy and Annabeth are still alive, despite the incredible danger they are in Nico is right They are alive You WILL find out what is happening to them in the next book They don t disappear from the story END SPOILER ALERThide spoiler I m honestly not sure if I want Percy and Annabeth s perspectives to be told If I had to choose, I would want Nico obviously , Leo he s hilarious , Reyna we have to know what s going on in the Roman side of things and Maybe Jason We haven t heard from him in a while and he is a main character As much as I love Percy, I m not sure if Rick will include his perspective again I d rather Percy s perspective be in the last book than in the second to last Or maybe that s just me.On the romance department, I ve lost so much respect for Jason Playing both girls not cool I don t know if I want him with Reyna any, I m so conflicted.And the whole Leo Hazel Frank thing UNDECIDED There s so much romantic drama in these books now ENOUGH WITH THE LOVE TRIANGLES My most important request I miss some of the old characters Rick Whatever happened to Grover or Thalia or even Percy s mom Bring them back please Post some spoilers Rick Please, please, please, please Or else and I m serious this time Cause a year is just too long to go without Percy EDIT November 13th Sorry to say this edit doesn t have any spoilers or upcoming information and things like that But I have a real important thing to say Please do NOT rate the book alreadyI know, you love Riordan I know, all the other books were amazing And I know this book will probably be no different but please save your 5 stars until the book has been released There shouldn t be any ratings yet, pre reviews are fine but ratings Nah.Thanks EDIT April 5th Two important things I have to share with you today Number 1 The cover art will be released on May 31st, 2013So that means that this While very pretty, is not the actual cover art but a fan made cover Why must you taunt me with this So excited to see it Numero 2 THE RELEASE DATE FOR THIS BOOK IS OCTOBER 8TH, 2013 Aww, the wait is so, very long 6 months EDIT April 11th WAIT WHAT So Rick, you mean to tell me that the fact that Aphrodite talked to Reyna, the fact that Jason felt wrong about Piper, the fact that Reyna was waiting for Jason to come back because she wants to be loved means absolutely nothing You see, I wouldn t have had such a large problem with Jason and Piper if not for the inclusion of Reyna Jason feels If Riordan wanted to be Team Piper, why did he have to make us fall in love with the idea of Reyna and Jason This is just cruel.On a happier note Could this mean DOES NICO HAVE A POV EDIT May 31st IT HAS A COVER Let s analyse shall we So we can clearly see Annabeth and Percy on the cover the first cover which features PERCABETH cue fangirl screaming Secondly, and I m sure this has already been pointed out, why are those Doors of Death closed They they, can t be stuck in Tartaus NoooooO A 83% Very Good NotesPulsating panic, its heroes mature by individual valor, personal pain, and facing down the monsters of memory lane. House of Hades ReviewPre HoH release review near the bottom somwhere EDIT May, 2014So a confirmed Nico point of view for BoO interestingContains House of Hades spoilers Ummm so House of Hades was kind of epic I m just trying to figure out where to start here how about IT WAS TOO FREAKING SHORT So, it was almost 600 pages And it was awesome, but I can t help feel that it still could have been longer As many Tartarus chapters as there were, they were all short And Piper o House of Hades ReviewPre HoH release review near the bottom somwhere EDIT May, 2014So a confirmed Nico point of view for BoO interestingContains House of Hades spoilers Ummm so House of Hades was kind of epic I m just trying to figure out where to start here how about IT WAS TOO FREAKING SHORT So, it was almost 600 pages And it was awesome, but I can t help feel that it still could have been longer As many Tartarus chapters as there were, they were all short And Piper only got one section of chapters Which, don t lie, was a pretty bad A Khione confrontation Speaking of POV s, I was really happy to see Frank again He has such a subtle humor that I love And the whole thing on the bridge, I just loved it Another thing I loved HOLY CALYPSO I got teary at the end of that part It was so sad I actually got the feeling that the two of them were perfect for each other And the thing at the end of that part with the prophecy It s all starting to come together Even Jason was likable in this book Though I don t like the pro Camp Jupiter feeling I m getting from Percy, Jason choosing Camp Half Blood was a nice little twist Well, not quiet a twist We all knew he liked Camp Half Blood better And, come on, wealllike Camp Half Blood better Jason was also a pretty good leader in this book He s still not one of my favorites, but he kept everyone on track I m really starting to get that feeling that they are all a group Hazel and Piper started getting along and Leo got Frank that fire proof pouch InMark of Athena the seven plus Nico weren t really used to each other yet, but I think all of those problems were fixed in this book They are all a much better team than they were in past books.And Percy and Annabeth were adorable I mean, Percy only got to nap once the entire time, but it was all so perfect And the pen writes in bronze, and Bob, and Small Bob, and that scene with the arai. I liked that Annabeth got a cool sword and the whole Tartarus being alive thing was terrifying I also noticed that they used their delay tactic a lot in this book Like, does anybody have any idea how many times someone stalls for time in this book Not like I had problem with it, they are always hysterical when they delay The tourist thing at the place of Night killed me And then of course the next Jason chapter Frank picks up a tourist brochure.Also, I was so shocked that nobody died in this book Rick had me so convinced that two people were gonna die.1 Nico or Hazel 2 Leo or JasonI thought one person from each of these groups was going to go He made me so certain that two of these four people weren t going to make it to see the epic last battle Now if no one died in this book how many are gonna die in the next one And now on that wonderfully happy note I m going toalk about NICO Oh my gosh, is it sad that I wasn t expecting this I m not one of those people who have a mega fangirl crush on Nico, yet I still didn t see the signs earlier in the chapter I guess I just expected it to beof a brotherly Percy thing, but I m actually totally okay with the way it turned out It was important, but Rick didn t make ahugedeal of it I think it was done very nicely, actually Also, Dear Rick,We all though it was weird in Mark of Athena when you said Nico had always had a huge crush on Annabeth We know you planted it.Sincerely,I Knew I was Right And That That Never Happened.And how sneaky was it that he got rid of all the extra characters on that little save the camps quest I was wondering why if there were only supposed to be seven demigods, what the heck were Nico and Reyna doing hanging around But he fixed it, and he got rid of Coach Hedge, who s going to have a babyYay, Coach Hedge we all love you This was also really a book of answering fans questions We learned Reyna s full name, Annabeth s birthday, and if Percy s pen actually writes He did a good job of packing all of our ridiculous questions into the book in normal ways Way to go Rick And how about that next title Spooky right I really like it I just hope the cover isn t black, House of Hades is already dark enough that it would just look weird on my bookshelf Oh, I m sure the cover will be amazing as always.As much as I m SO EXCITED for this next book, I don t know how I feel about Percy Jackson ending I m going to be really sad when it s all over, and just think, the end is only a year awayAnd did anyone else get that creepy Barnes and Noble exclusive map of Tartarus It s really weird Mark of Athena Review and pre HoH release rantingWhy did MoA have to end so sadly I hardly ever cry Even when I saw Titanic my eyes just got a little teary But THIS THIS was the saddest sweetest most heartbreaking thing I have ever experienced Probably that ever existed I was SOBBING It was 1 30 am and I m surprised I didn t wake up my whole family with the inhuman noises I was making The only thing that made me feel just a tiny bit better was when Nico said that Percy was the best demigod ever and I was like take that Jason Don t get me wrong, I like Jason Percy s just better So yeah, my heart is broken Forever On a side note I hope that Nico is a POV in House of Hades UPDATE yes, guys I know that there will be no Nico POV, but when I made this review I did not know that because the information was not yet released, sorry for any confusion anybody else notice Rick s pattern of the last few books The_____ of _____ Yes NO Also, would I be alone if I said that I think Leo is going to play a huge role in the end of the series Just a guess.Also, I ve read the last two chapters like 5 times already and might I say that they are equally as sad every time The worst thing about the first time, though, was that it was SO unexpected Annabeth trips and you re like Percy will save her and the book s like lol no They fall to their doom after a really cute moment And then you re just like massive sob THAT S SO CUTE AND SAD WAHHHHHH in conclusion I DID NOT EXPECT IT def his darkest and one of his best ones yet Can t wait for House of Hades EEEEEEEP Rick isn t too cruel so Percy and Annabeth will probably make it but it s still super sad And to those of you telling Rick to write faster I know I don t want to wait either BUT considering that it takes some authors three years to write ONE book, he s actually pretty fast AND would you rather him take his time and have it be AMAZING or have it come out earlier and SUCK because he didn t have any time Exactly I don t want to wait but we have to And come on, you know the pain is actually really fun It makes the book even better when you get it Plus it gives ustime to enjoy the series AND we still have 2 years until the end And it will all be over And I ll have nothing to doUPDATE 11 26 12 SPOILER On Rick s blog it said that we WILL be hearing from Percy Annabeth my bet is on a Percy POV in HoH and that in the end Nico can tell that they are alive YAYAYAYAYAYUPDATE 5 31 13WOW The cover WOW It s so creepy I honestly cannot stop staring at it They look like zombies I love it Also, has anyone seen the U.K cover I like how the U.S and U.K covers are always sort of similar I think they want us to think certain things Like the MoA cover, we all thought that Percy and Jason were going to fight because on BOTH covers it showed them in deceiving battle positions. Now, the HoH covers show Annabeth and Percy in peril I likes it.Also, guys Seriously Rick Riordan tweeted the link for the official unveil and on the link it said that the cover was a nice Percabeth moment This means that, IT IS NOT NICO on the cover you guys That sword is bronze NOT iron Get a grip Also, the whole NICE Percabeth moment thing that I just mentioned means that Percy is not dragging Annabeth because he is possessed I understand that you cannot see his eyes perfectly, but guys IT IS A DRAWING Please forgive me, but I don t think that there is too much hidden in this cover Yes, I agree it is weird that their clothes are messed up I will give you credt on that because I don t know if it s spiderweb or prison clothes as some of you are suggesting or what Another thing that I am unsure of is the weird river path of souls or whatever that is on the bottom So come up with whatever predictions you want on that, it will not bother me But people that is PERCY he is NOT POSSESSED, and to add a third thing I love Annabeth s hair She is Rocking the hair ribbon totally relevant Oh, and Leo On the blurb synopsis thing it said that Leo wondered how they were going to close the doors without someone staying behind and I m really scared It said Leo wonders, LEO would they mention JUST Leo if something bad wasn t going to happen I m sure though that if anyone dies Rick Riordan will do it right Still, that will be a VERY emotional scene if it happens.One last thing On the U.K cover Annabeth has a knife YES At the end of MoA I was freaking out because her knife and laptop fell I had hopes that they would find them in Tartarus I am happy to say that with proof from the U.K cover that they possibly will find them Maybe I ll probably be back for another update when we get the sneak preview in a few weeks.SO EXCITED UPDATE 7 10 13Last week the first chapter for The House of Hades was released to the public I know that it took me a really long to update what I thought, but trust me I read it as soon as I had the chance This first bit of The House of Hades is in Hazel s point of view I love every single characters in these books, and I m glad that they are all getting equal chances to speak The only reason that I have not talked about this chapter sooner is because I felt that there isn t much to say It was fabulous and it set up the book for a ton of interesting things What is Hazel going to have to do when they get to the doors How much does Nico know Yes, there are many crazy questions raised and, as I said, it is an amazing first chapter There just isn t as much to question in it as there was for both The Son of Neptune and the Mark of Athena.Rick Riordan has done a great job as always and I cannot wait to read the rest of the book P.S What do you think book 5 might be called I know that we won t find out until October, I was just wondering some of your opinions My heart flutters when I m reading this one because it is the fourth book and I will have to wait for the final book D I am so excited what will happen to this series.Leo He is so useful in this book He s so awesome I ship him to Calypso by the way but I don t have faith much in this two since Calypso is in her world.Piper I m glad she is moving to help her friends Her fight with ice gods are awesome although her relationship to Jason still didn t improve, oh Piper dear, I think you are i My heart flutters when I m reading this one because it is the fourth book and I will have to wait for the final book D I am so excited what will happen to this series.Leo He is so useful in this book He s so awesome I ship him to Calypso by the way but I don t have faith much in this two since Calypso is in her world.Piper I m glad she is moving to help her friends Her fight with ice gods are awesome although her relationship to Jason still didn t improve, oh Piper dear, I think you are in the verge of heartbreak.Jason I m glad he has a numerous POV in this book not much to say to him but he is reaching out to his friends.HazelFrank They are so cute Such a matured couple.PercyAnnabeth How could i forget this two Drinking fire, getting help from Bob and Damasen, their love is so strong and i can t wait for book 5 for their happy ending.NICO Okay, so his name is in caps and bold BECAUSE OF HIS REVELATION sakldjjsfhjsahfgdghjhhdfkghdksjadfhkjasgrf I CANNOT I DON T EVEN HATE OR DISLIKE IT BECAUSE ITS GOOD JUST TO WAY IT IS Oh, waitReyna Shes so awkward well that s expected and I m glad she is not like the other Roman demigods that are narrow minded Well, for the whole summary of my review, it is awesome I can t wait for the book 5 D I ve finished House of Hades First of, let me tell you that the dedication page is CRAZY It s like Rick derives pleasure from seeing us in pain view spoiler hide spoiler I mean seriously Do you have to rub it in Argggh Sigh But let s face it We still love Rick Riordan no matter how troll he is.Anyway, on to the book.Rick stepped up his game in the House of Hades It wasn t all action, wherein there is one explosive thing then the scene shifts to another one In the HOH, there a I ve finished House of Hades First of, let me tell you that the dedication page is CRAZY It s like Rick derives pleasure from seeing us in pain view spoiler hide spoiler I mean seriously Do you have to rub it in Argggh Sigh But let s face it We still love Rick Riordan no matter how troll he is.Anyway, on to the book.Rick stepped up his game in the House of Hades It wasn t all action, wherein there is one explosive thing then the scene shifts to another one In the HOH, there are quiet moments where Rick lets his character grow and havedepth During these moments the readers could know what kind of person a character truly is and I personally enjoyed these moments Now I know what Jason really feels about being the golden boy That he does not feel that perfect contrary to what the others perceive about him I wasn t expecting it but I really liked Jason s chapters He tries hard to build a rapport with his colleagues but unfortunately, he doesn t have the skills of Percy Jackson I can see why others don t trust him that much Jason is supposed to be looked up to because he s the leader, being the son of Jupiter and all But can I share my problems with him Can he be a friend and not just a ruler who only thinks for the good of the quest Percy is a people person Jason not so much But hey, props to Jason for trying Now I know that he can be a good friend Also, I love that Jason and Percy are bros view spoiler When he bear hugged Percy Bromance overload hide spoiler Piper was much much less annoying this time Maybe because she got only four chapters which is very fine with me lol Piper is okay when she s not obsessing about Jason She s actually pretty cool and kick ass, her charm being her most effective weapon Leo I really wished that view spoiler his romance with Calypso will be permanent I mean it s about time he gets someone, a living creature, to love and will love him in return, not just his machines Otherwise, that would be extremely lonely hide spoiler He kind of matured in this book, no longer that silly, crazy demigod we all adored Oh well, thats character development.Also, I like the Leo Hazel friendship without the tension Or maybe I just can t imagine Hazel being with anyone but Frank Hazel s powers have grown here She learned how to view spoiler use the mist and bend it to suit her needs hide spoiler , that s pretty much impressive I like her new friendship with Leo, and her relationship with Frank becamestable She bonded well with Piper too I just wish that Nico would stop the self pity and realize that of all people, Hazel would accept him for who he is Anyway, Hazel has a huge part in finding the doors of death and can I just say that she really rocked figuratively the underground realm It s like everything is possible when Hazel is in underground, view spoiler she can even sort of teleport Leo, Percy and Annabeth hide spoiler Anyway, I hope the whole we re quite scared of you because you re a child of pluto and youre super powerful business will stop I mean, it s really not fair.What s with the voices inside Frank s head I still quite dont get it but okay. Ares is just a troublesome, childish war god End of story.I do like the fact that Ares is generous with giving his blessing to his children Remember when Clarisse killed the drakon and had a red aura around her or something Yea, that happened to Frank too But Frank has gotten some bonus points view spoiler His appearance changed He became taller and less pudgy In short, he became hot lol hide spoiler and I think his promotion is right too since out of all the Romans among the seven, Frank is most roman of all Heck, he even pins his centurion badge with everything he wears Percy and Annabeth Oh my heart is soooooo happy for these two.They ve come so far I really can t imagine one without the other I think Annabeth was spot onHer voice caught on the word friend Percy was a lotthan that Even boyfriend really didn t cover it They d been through so much together, at this point Percy was part of her a sometimes annoying part, sure, but definitely a part she could not live withoutExcerpt From Rick, Riordan The House of Hades Heroes of Olympus Book 4 Sigh Their journey through Tartarus was one helluva ride It s their darkest adventure yet, and I think they wouldn t have survived if not for view spoiler Bob Maybe Damasen too but mostly it s Bob who had been their rock hide spoiler.I don t know For me the highlight of their trip to Tartarus is learning to give chance and to trust that even enemies could be great allies Also by treating someone as a friend, even if it would be insane to do so, he would also treat you as a friend and will choose to be on your side even if it means betraying traditions Wow Since when did Rick Riordan s books make me so philosophical Maybe it s just too much Annabeth Not that I m complaining.okay, Nico is not part of the 7 but im going to include a separate portion of my review for him WARNING The following might contain strong emotional outbursts.NICO was angry and miserable like I mentioned Nico is freaking fourteen he shouldn t be feeling these kinds of stuff It will break him I wish he would be given a friend who could understand him and give him advice Then he will view spoiler make up with Percy accepting the fact that hes just an older brother or something hide spoiler Then he ll go somewhere to heal his broken heart while doing some important godly job That would be awesome.And the scene when Annabeth held Percy s hand while saying good luck to nico That moment, i wanted to snatch Percy s hand from Annabeth and give her my Don t you have a heart glare Oh nicoWell not everything about Nico is pure drama There was a scene when Nico was so cute I wanted to bring him home lol view spoiler When he was turned to a corn plant and when he returned to human and he said that he had a nightmare about popcorn hide spoiler That was hilarious I hope he hadscenes like that.So that s it I LOVED IT It may not be the same as the past series PJO , not that silly and juvenile, but the characters becamereal to me Goods job Mr Rick Riordan, as usual.Now book five view spoiler Blood of Olympus Wow that sounds scary hide spoiler , please please come a little faster At least make it on the first week of October I know the ending of the House of Hades which I loved btw isn t much of a cliffhanger, but I still want to know badly what will happen ESPECIALLY ABOUT NICO He s the most angry and miserable character I ve ever met, Akhlys and he would make a fantastic, albeit desperate, pair I want Nico to have a peace of mind, he deserves it Please Nico stop being angry and let people love you because believe me, a lot of us fangirls really really have a massive crush on you.Oh my gosh this is such a good book I hope Rick would write another Percy series after the Heroes of Olympus I m not ready to let Percy go.EarlierUPDATE Oct 3, 2013 Look at this ALL OF THE SEVEN are getting a POV in the House of Hades I did NOT expect that, but YAY But is my understanding of what he said correct Sorry, I m a little giddy I can t think straight lol.THE COVER Percy and Annabeth are on the cover.Percy and Annabeth are on the cover.Percy and Annabeth are on the cover.It only means one thing We ll be getting a POV from either of them I m guessing it would be Annabeth s.But oh dear, they don t look good in the picture They look so beat up But at least they are together Together. Gosh that should be their. um, tagline Or slogan or whatever I AM FREAKING EXCITED EARLIER I have a feeling we won t see Percy and Annabeth in this book If it s possible, we will see them on the last chapters already sobs I have to qualify this I think we won t see Percy and Annabeth s POVs here We can only know what s happening to them thru demigod dreams and visions whatnot I know, I know This is unacceptable Maybe Annabeth s POV will be included too Since her POV was not included in TLH or SoN NEWSFLASH I just read Riordan s blog and he wrote this The one thing I can promise regarding The House of Hades SPOILER ALERT At the end of Mark of Athena, Nico senses that Percy and Annabeth are still alive, despite the incredible danger they are in Nico is right They are alive You WILL find out what is happening to them in the next book They don t disappear from the story END SPOILER ALERT THAT S FREAKING AWESOME GUYS Whose POV we will be seeing view spoiler I think House of Hades would be told from Jason, Frank and Hazel s POV Meh hide spoiler I mean, I like Hazel and Frank with Leo joining the mix but Jason No I don t like him that much Maybe I was influenced by Piper s POV on MoA, she being obsessed with Jason, as usual Through Piper s eyes we saw Jason as too perfect Um. WHO WANTS PERFECT Perfect is boring and not really believable, I mean there s a reason why most people root for the underdog right Also she compared Jason to Percy, and I din t like her comparison view spoiler She thought Percy was unimpressive compared to Jason hide spoiler At least I won t be seeing Piper s thoughts in this one That s definitely a plus Jasper fans, no hatin please DI just wish the love story won t be the main plot, it s too cuddly for my taste LOL Oh well, another year of waiting for the House of Hades Until then, I should read MoA again and savor Percy and Annabeth s moments together I won t be seeing them for a long time Bob says hello AND I BROKE IN TEARS WHAT IS WRONG WITH ME. Oh, these books are going to destroy me However, despite loving this, there is something different which makes it a bit hard to decide on the rating I feel like there was something missing in this story, maybe too many characters, so something had to be cut Because since there are so many of them, people tend to find favourites, and then they wish forcontent about them This book had me totally destroyed, I did not see this coming at all and it was so painfully good, I just cannot tak Oh, these books are going to destroy me However, despite loving this, there is something different which

there wereof Jason Piper moments because so far they are quickly becoming my favourite couple I adore Percy and Annabeth they are the original Riordan couple I could not wait for them to get together And I m so happy for them.I hope that Percy and Nico will talk and everything will be all right forever.I m not a fan of Happily Ever After but I so much need a happy ending for Nico and a book for him as well.I finally started to like Leo view spoiler , please, be with Calypso hide spoiler However, I still don t like Hazel or Frank They just do not fit with the rest, to be honest view spoiler Well, I hope that there will be different ending than that Jason ll go to the Half blood Camp and Percy to the Jupiter Camp hide spoiler Maybe this book wasn t perfect, but I m not able to give only 4 I would feel terrible Because these books are just so awesome and leave me grasping for the next book Seereviews at YA Midnight ReadsSo the air was acid The water was misery The ground was broken

Seereviews at YA Midnight ReadsSo the air was acid The water was misery The ground was broken glass Everything here was designed to hurt and kill.I have never been a fan of including gifs in my reviews however The House of Hades, calls for some exception Not only have I been dying for a year to read this, but also because right now, I m a mess of emotions and words I mean, I was already crying when my mum snagged a copy for me while I was at school the second the bookstore opened And then I abandoned all my review books so I could read The House of Hades ASAP because IT S THE HOUSE OF HADES, DUH Proceed onwards Picking up from where the torturous The Mark of Athena left off, we have Hazel, Frank, Leo, Jason, Piper, Nico and Coach Hedge on the Argo II, on the way to meet Percy and Annabeth on the other side of The Doors of Death However the task is not that simple, a war is brewing between the Greeks and Romans, Gaia is becoming stronger and the Athena Parthenos needs to be in its rightful place The House of Hades, second last book before the finale which has been named The Blood of Olympus has a little something for all types of readers Action, mythology, humour, romance, sacrifices, war and monsters are all present And, trust me people you will not be disappointed no matter how high your hopes were, no matter how excited you were, no matter how much of your body you would sell for this No Disappointments YAYA The House of Hades, has whopping 7 main characters and 2 sub main characters Crazy Yes It has always been my greatest concern that The House of Hades would make my brain hurt from attempting to distinguish apart such an ample number of personalities Yet, I seriously love love loved the characters in this book Percy, our hero since the beginning has never beenselfless and humorous He may be kickass but he still has one big big heart and a very funny personality However I couldn t help but think that Bob the Titan, yes, Bob is back was one of thelaughable characters here Percy had a little less due to his situation, a.k.a in the deepest part of hell Annabeth, wholly badass, full of hope and smart Always with a plan While Percy and Annabeth are in Tartarus, they face some of the biggest challenges and curses of their lives their abilities are stretch to their maximum and above And their romance was like THE SWEETEST EVER I ll admit, their isn t as much as I was wishing for but Rick Riordan makes it the most realistic and every time they d hold hands I was like Together, they make an ass kicking team.Hazel was actually one of theimportant ones in The House of Hades I grew rather attached to her, she s so determined to save everyone, so full of heart, so determined I really wanted to tackle hug her Leo, our cool guy with plenty of cute arrogance Frank, lots of character development in this one, our shy and unsure one Coach Hedge, we go a littleinto his history and still and get plenty of his love for killing and butchering And Nico OMG My fictional crush 3 I did get heartbroken though Heart So Broken Into Shreds Piper and Jason they were just meh As usual Not that they ruined my enjoyment of the book but I am just no fan.I do think, while Percy Jackson and the Olympians and The Heroes of Olympus are full of fun and action, it s also been teaching me a lot of Greek Mythology and Roman Mythology along the way, in fact, I ve become really interested in Greek Myths, and am planning to learnabout religion and mythology for my free electives at school which is exciting I am so, so grateful to have read this series Some books, you read and love but they may not teach you as much as this one Rick s books come with the extra of some knowledge If an author can teach a bit of Greek Myths while writing an attaching story, I do believe that all MG and YA readers so give this series a go.All in all, The House of Hades was no disappointment apart from the fact that I have to wait ANOTHER year for the sequel cries Oh, geez Oh, wow This Me Now.Give it to me before I freak out Too late.LOOK AT THAT COVER Oh, geez Oh, wow This Me Now.Give it to me before I freak out Too late.LOOK AT THAT COVER

That last book left me in a jumble of emotions and feels and thoughts But I realized something worse Since the House of Hades is the second to last book in the series, I predict there will be a big cliffhanger You think this is bad Just wait till we read this book Yes, I acknowledge the fact that we have to wait to read this bo But above all, I just want this book to come out or at least have any spoilers I mean, I m dying here That last book left me in a jumble of emotions and feels and thoughts But I realized something worse Since the House of Hades is the second to last book in the series, I predict there will be a big cliffhanger You think this is bad Just wait till we read this book Yes, I acknowledge the fact that we have to wait to read this book for practically a year.But on a different and much happier note The title of the book is House of Hades Could this mean NICO I think I would cry and hyperventilate if it s Nico s perspective My heart wouldn t be able to take it My undying love fascination of his character is just so deep, and I swear, I just want him to get out of that damned jar Screw Team Percy or Team Jason, I m Team Nico DiAngelo I wanna date meet the Ghost King Speaking of which, Nico better be okay and he better stay alive and Rick Riordan, don t you dare lay a finger on Nico If you do, I swear, you better sleep with one eye open.Percabeth update Rick has confirmed that Annabeth and Percy are alive How they re doing though No clue But I expect a lot of romance cause what better place to spend time with your boyfriend than in hell view spoiler Direct quote from RickThe one thing I can promise regarding The House of Hades SPOILER ALERT At the end of Mark of Athena , Nico senses that Percy and Annabeth are still alive, despite the incredible danger they are in Nico is right They are alive You WILL find out what is happening to them in the next book They don t disappear from the story END SPOILER ALERThide spoiler I m honestly not sure if I want Percy and Annabeth s perspectives to be told If I had to choose, I would want Nico obviously , Leo he s hilarious , Reyna we have to know what s going on in the Roman side of things and Maybe Jason We haven t heard from him in a while and he is a main character As much as I love Percy, I m not sure if Rick will include his perspective again I d rather Percy s perspective be in the last book than in the second to last Or maybe that s just me.On the romance department, I ve lost so much respect for Jason Playing both girls not cool I don t know if I want him with Reyna any, I m so conflicted.And the whole Leo Hazel Frank thing UNDECIDED There s so much romantic drama in these books now ENOUGH WITH THE LOVE TRIANGLES My most important request I miss some of the old characters Rick Whatever happened to Grover or Thalia or even Percy s mom Bring them back please Post some spoilers Rick Please, please, please, please Or else and I m serious this time Cause a year is just too long to go without Percy EDIT November 13th Sorry to say this edit doesn t have any spoilers or upcoming information and things like that But I have a real important thing to say Please do NOT rate the book alreadyI know, you love Riordan I know, all the other books were amazing And I know this book will probably be no different but please save your 5 stars until the book has been released There shouldn t be any ratings yet, pre reviews are fine but ratings Nah.Thanks EDIT April 5th Two important things I have to share with you today Number 1 The cover art will be released on May 31st, 2013So that means that this While very pretty, is not the actual cover art but a fan made cover Why must you taunt me with this So excited to see it Numero 2 THE RELEASE DATE FOR THIS BOOK IS OCTOBER 8TH, 2013 Aww, the wait is so, very long 6 months EDIT April 11th WAIT WHAT So Rick, you mean to tell me that the fact that Aphrodite talked to Reyna, the fact that Jason felt wrong about Piper, the fact that Reyna was waiting for Jason to come back because she wants to be loved means absolutely nothing You see, I wouldn t have had such a large problem with Jason and Piper if not for the inclusion of Reyna Jason feels If Riordan wanted to be Team Piper, why did he have to make us fall in love with the idea of Reyna and Jason This is just cruel.On a happier note Could this mean DOES NICO HAVE A POV EDIT May 31st IT HAS A COVER Let s analyse shall we So we can clearly see Annabeth and Percy on the cover the first cover which features PERCABETH cue fangirl screaming Secondly, and I m sure this has already been pointed out, why are those Doors of Death closed They they, can t be stuck in Tartaus NoooooO A 83% Very Good NotesPulsating panic, its heroes mature by individual valor, personal pain, and facing down the monsters of memory lane. House of Hades ReviewPre HoH release review near the bottom somwhere EDIT May, 2014So a confirmed Nico point of view for BoO interestingContains House of Hades spoilers Ummm so House of Hades was kind of epic I m just trying to figure out where to start here how about IT WAS TOO FREAKING SHORT So, it was almost 600 pages And it was awesome, but I can t help feel that it still could have been longer As many Tartarus chapters as there were, they were all short And Piper o House of Hades ReviewPre HoH release review near the bottom somwhere EDIT May, 2014So a confirmed Nico point of view for BoO interestingContains House of Hades spoilers Ummm so House of Hades was kind of epic I m just trying to figure out where to start here how about IT WAS TOO FREAKING SHORT So, it was almost 600 pages And it was awesome, but I can t help feel that it still could have been longer As many Tartarus chapters as there were, they were all short And Piper only got one section of chapters Which, don t lie, was a pretty bad A Khione confrontation Speaking of POV s, I was really happy to see Frank again He has such a subtle humor that I love And the whole thing on the bridge, I just loved it Another thing I loved HOLY CALYPSO I got teary at the end of that part It was so sad I actually got the feeling that the two of them were perfect for each other And the thing at the end of that part with the prophecy It s all starting to come together Even Jason was likable in this book Though I don t like the pro Camp Jupiter feeling I m getting from Percy, Jason choosing Camp Half Blood was a nice little twist Well, not quiet a twist We all knew he liked Camp Half Blood better And, come on, wealllike Camp Half Blood better Jason was also a pretty good leader in this book He s still not one of my favorites, but he kept everyone on track I m really starting to get that feeling that they are all a group Hazel and Piper started getting along and Leo got Frank that fire proof pouch InMark of Athena the seven plus Nico weren t really used to each other yet, but I think all of those problems were fixed in this book They are all a much better team than they were in past books.And Percy and Annabeth were adorable I mean, Percy only got to nap once the entire time, but it was all so perfect And the pen writes in bronze, and Bob, and Small Bob, and that scene with the arai. I liked that Annabeth got a cool sword and the whole Tartarus being alive thing was terrifying I also noticed that they used their delay tactic a lot in this book Like, does anybody have any idea how many times someone stalls for time in this book Not like I had problem with it, they are always hysterical when they delay The tourist thing at the place of Night killed me And then of course the next Jason chapter Frank picks up a tourist brochure.Also, I was so shocked that nobody died in this book Rick had me so convinced that two people were gonna die.1 Nico or Hazel 2 Leo or JasonI thought one person from each of these groups was going to go He made me so certain that two of these four people weren t going to make it to see the epic last battle Now if no one died in this book how many are gonna die in the next one And now on that wonderfully happy note I m going toalk about NICO Oh my gosh, is it sad that I wasn t expecting this I m not one of those people who have a mega fangirl crush on Nico, yet I still didn t see the signs earlier in the chapter I guess I just expected it to beof a brotherly Percy thing, but I m actually totally okay with the way it turned out It was important, but Rick didn t make ahugedeal of it I think it was done very nicely, actually Also, Dear Rick,We all though it was weird in Mark of Athena when you said Nico had always had a huge crush on Annabeth We know you planted it.Sincerely,I Knew I was Right And That That Never Happened.And how sneaky was it that he got rid of all the extra characters on that little save the camps quest I was wondering why if there were only supposed to be seven demigods, what the heck were Nico and Reyna doing hanging around But he fixed it, and he got rid of Coach Hedge, who s going to have a babyYay, Coach Hedge we all love you This was also really a book of answering fans questions We learned Reyna s full name, Annabeth s birthday, and if Percy s pen actually writes He did a good job of packing all of our ridiculous questions into the book in normal ways Way to go Rick And how about that next title Spooky right I really like it I just hope the cover isn t black, House of Hades is already dark enough that it would just look weird on my bookshelf Oh, I m sure the cover will be amazing as always.As much as I m SO EXCITED for this next book, I don t know how I feel about Percy Jackson ending I m going to be really sad when it s all over, and just think, the end is only a year awayAnd did anyone else get that creepy Barnes and Noble exclusive map of Tartarus It s really weird Mark of Athena Review and pre HoH release rantingWhy did MoA have to end so sadly I hardly ever cry Even when I saw Titanic my eyes just got a little teary But THIS THIS was the saddest sweetest most heartbreaking thing I have ever experienced Probably that ever existed I was SOBBING It was 1 30 am and I m surprised I didn t wake up my whole family with the inhuman noises I was making The only thing that made me feel just a tiny bit better was when Nico said that Percy was the best demigod ever and I was like take that Jason Don t get me wrong, I like Jason Percy s just better So yeah, my heart is broken Forever On a side note I hope that Nico is a POV in House of Hades UPDATE yes, guys I know that there will be no Nico POV, but when I made this review I did not know that because the information was not yet released, sorry for any confusion anybody else notice Rick s pattern of the last few books The_____ of _____ Yes NO Also, would I be alone if I said that I think Leo is going to play a huge role in the end of the series Just a guess.Also, I ve read the last two chapters like 5 times already and might I say that they are equally as sad every time The worst thing about the first time, though, was that it was SO unexpected Annabeth trips and you re like Percy will save her and the book s like lol no They fall to their doom after a really cute moment And then you re just like massive sob THAT S SO CUTE AND SAD WAHHHHHH in conclusion I DID NOT EXPECT IT def his darkest and one of his best ones yet Can t wait for House of Hades EEEEEEEP Rick isn t too cruel so Percy and Annabeth will probably make it but it s still super sad And to those of you telling Rick to write faster I know I don t want to wait either BUT considering that it takes some authors three years to write ONE book, he s actually pretty fast AND would you rather him take his time and have it be AMAZING or have it come out earlier and SUCK because he didn t have any time Exactly I don t want to wait but we have to And come on, you know the pain is actually really fun It makes the book even better when you get it Plus it gives ustime to enjoy the series AND we still have 2 years until the end And it will all be over And I ll have nothing to doUPDATE 11 26 12 SPOILER On Rick s blog it said that we WILL be hearing from Percy Annabeth my bet is on a Percy POV in HoH and that in the end Nico can tell that they are alive YAYAYAYAYAYUPDATE 5 31 13WOW The cover WOW It s so creepy I honestly cannot stop staring at it They look like zombies I love it Also, has anyone seen the U.K cover I like how the U.S and U.K covers are always sort of similar I think they want us to think certain things Like the MoA cover, we all thought that Percy and Jason were going to fight because on BOTH covers it showed them in deceiving battle positions. Now, the HoH covers show Annabeth and Percy in peril I likes it.Also, guys Seriously Rick Riordan tweeted the link for the official unveil and on the link it said that the cover was a nice Percabeth moment This means that, IT IS NOT NICO on the cover you guys That sword is bronze NOT iron Get a grip Also, the whole NICE Percabeth moment thing that I just mentioned means that Percy is not dragging Annabeth because he is possessed I understand that you cannot see his eyes perfectly, but guys IT IS A DRAWING Please forgive me, but I don t think that there is too much hidden in this cover Yes, I agree it is weird that their clothes are messed up I will give you credt on that because I don t know if it s spiderweb or prison clothes as some of you are suggesting or what Another thing that I am unsure of is the weird river path of souls or whatever that is on the bottom So come up with whatever predictions you want on that, it will not bother me But people that is PERCY he is NOT POSSESSED, and to add a third thing I love Annabeth s hair She is Rocking the hair ribbon totally relevant Oh, and Leo On the blurb synopsis thing it said that Leo wondered how they were going to close the doors without someone staying behind and I m really scared It said Leo wonders, LEO would they mention JUST Leo if something bad wasn t going to happen I m sure though that if anyone dies Rick Riordan will do it right Still, that will be a VERY emotional scene if it happens.One last thing On the U.K cover Annabeth has a knife YES At the end of MoA I was freaking out because her knife and laptop fell I had hopes that they would find them in Tartarus I am happy to say that with proof from the U.K cover that they possibly will find them Maybe I ll probably be back for another update when we get the sneak preview in a few weeks.SO EXCITED UPDATE 7 10 13Last week the first chapter for The House of Hades was released to the public I know that it took me a really long to update what I thought, but trust me I read it as soon as I had the chance This first bit of The House of Hades is in Hazel s point of view I love every single characters in these books, and I m glad that they are all getting equal chances to speak The only reason that I have not talked about this chapter sooner is because I felt that there isn t much to say It was fabulous and it set up the book for a ton of interesting things What is Hazel going to have to do when they get to the doors How much does Nico know Yes, there are many crazy questions raised and, as I said, it is an amazing first chapter There just isn t as much to question in it as there was for both The Son of Neptune and the Mark of Athena.Rick Riordan has done a great job as always and I cannot wait to read the rest of the book P.S What do you think book 5 might be called I know that we won t find out until October, I was just wondering some of your opinions My heart flutters when I m reading this one because it is the fourth book and I will have to wait for the final book D I am so excited what will happen to this series.Leo He is so useful in this book He s so awesome I ship him to Calypso by the way but I don t have faith much in this two since Calypso is in her world.Piper I m glad she is moving to help her friends Her fight with ice gods are awesome although her relationship to Jason still didn t improve, oh Piper dear, I think you are i My heart flutters when I m reading this one because it is the fourth book and I will have to wait for the final book D I am so excited what will happen to this series.Leo He is so useful in this book He s so awesome I ship him to Calypso by the way but I don t have faith much in this two since Calypso is in her world.Piper I m glad she is moving to help her friends Her fight with ice gods are awesome although her relationship to Jason still didn t improve, oh Piper dear, I think you are in the verge of heartbreak.Jason I m glad he has a numerous POV in this book not much to say to him but he is reaching out to his friends.HazelFrank They are so cute Such a matured couple.PercyAnnabeth How could i forget this two Drinking fire, getting help from Bob and Damasen, their love is so strong and i can t wait for book 5 for their happy ending.NICO Okay, so his name is in caps and bold BECAUSE OF HIS REVELATION sakldjjsfhjsahfgdghjhhdfkghdksjadfhkjasgrf I CANNOT I DON T EVEN HATE OR DISLIKE IT BECAUSE ITS GOOD JUST TO WAY IT IS Oh, waitReyna Shes so awkward well that s expected and I m glad she is not like the other Roman demigods that are narrow minded Well, for the whole summary of my review, it is awesome I can t wait for the book 5 D I ve finished House of Hades First of, let me tell you that the dedication page is CRAZY It s like Rick derives pleasure from seeing us in pain view spoiler hide spoiler I mean seriously Do you have to rub it in Argggh Sigh But let s face it We still love Rick Riordan no matter how troll he is.Anyway, on to the book.Rick stepped up his game in the House of Hades It wasn t all action, wherein there is one explosive thing then the scene shifts to another one In the HOH, there a I ve finished House of Hades First of, let me tell you that the dedication page is CRAZY It s like Rick derives pleasure from seeing us in pain view spoiler hide spoiler I mean seriously Do you have to rub it in Argggh Sigh But let s face it We still love Rick Riordan no matter how troll he is.Anyway, on to the book.Rick stepped up his game in the House of Hades It wasn t all action, wherein there is one explosive thing then the scene shifts to another one In the HOH, there are quiet moments where Rick lets his character grow and havedepth During these moments the readers could know what kind of person a character truly is and I personally enjoyed these moments Now I know what Jason really feels about being the golden boy That he does not feel that perfect contrary to what the others perceive about him I wasn t expecting it but I really liked Jason s chapters He tries hard to build a rapport with his colleagues but unfortunately, he doesn t have the skills of Percy Jackson I can see why others don t trust him that much Jason is supposed to be looked up to because he s the leader, being the son of Jupiter and all But can I share my problems with him Can he be a friend and not just a ruler who only thinks for the good of the quest Percy is a people person Jason not so much But hey, props to Jason for trying Now I know that he can be a good friend Also, I love that Jason and Percy are bros view spoiler When he bear hugged Percy Bromance overload hide spoiler Piper was much much less annoying this time Maybe because she got only four chapters which is very fine with me lol Piper is okay when she s not obsessing about Jason She s actually pretty cool and kick ass, her charm being her most effective weapon Leo I really wished that view spoiler his romance with Calypso will be permanent I mean it s about time he gets someone, a living creature, to love and will love him in return, not just his machines Otherwise, that would be extremely lonely hide spoiler He kind of matured in this book, no longer that silly, crazy demigod we all adored Oh well, thats character development.Also, I like the Leo Hazel friendship without the tension Or maybe I just can t imagine Hazel being with anyone but Frank Hazel s powers have grown here She learned how to view spoiler use the mist and bend it to suit her needs hide spoiler , that s pretty much impressive I like her new friendship with Leo, and her relationship with Frank becamestable She bonded well with Piper too I just wish that Nico would stop the self pity and realize that of all people, Hazel would accept him for who he is Anyway, Hazel has a huge part in finding the doors of death and can I just say that she really rocked figuratively the underground realm It s like everything is possible when Hazel is in underground, view spoiler she can even sort of teleport Leo, Percy and Annabeth hide spoiler Anyway, I hope the whole we re quite scared of you because you re a child of pluto and youre super powerful business will stop I mean, it s really not fair.What s with the voices inside Frank s head I still quite dont get it but okay. Ares is just a troublesome, childish war god End of story.I do like the fact that Ares is generous with giving his blessing to his children Remember when Clarisse killed the drakon and had a red aura around her or something Yea, that happened to Frank too But Frank has gotten some bonus points view spoiler His appearance changed He became taller and less pudgy In short, he became hot lol hide spoiler and I think his promotion is right too since out of all the Romans among the seven, Frank is most roman of all Heck, he even pins his centurion badge with everything he wears Percy and Annabeth Oh my heart is soooooo happy for these two.They ve come so far I really can t imagine one without the other I think Annabeth was spot onHer voice caught on the word friend Percy was a lotthan that Even boyfriend really didn t cover it They d been through so much together, at this point Percy was part of her a sometimes annoying part, sure, but definitely a part she could not live withoutExcerpt From Rick, Riordan The House of Hades Heroes of Olympus Book 4 Sigh Their journey through Tartarus was one helluva ride It s their darkest adventure yet, and I think they wouldn t have survived if not for view spoiler Bob Maybe Damasen too but mostly it s Bob who had been their rock hide spoiler.I don t know For me the highlight of their trip to Tartarus is learning to give chance and to trust that even enemies could be great allies Also by treating someone as a friend, even if it would be insane to do so, he would also treat you as a friend and will choose to be on your side even if it means betraying traditions Wow Since when did Rick Riordan s books make me so philosophical Maybe it s just too much Annabeth Not that I m complaining.okay, Nico is not part of the 7 but im going to include a separate portion of my review for him WARNING The following might contain strong emotional outbursts.NICO was angry and miserable like I mentioned Nico is freaking fourteen he shouldn t be feeling these kinds of stuff It will break him I wish he would be given a friend who could understand him and give him advice Then he will view spoiler make up with Percy accepting the fact that hes just an older brother or something hide spoiler Then he ll go somewhere to heal his broken heart while doing some important godly job That would be awesome.And the scene when Annabeth held Percy s hand while saying good luck to nico That moment, i wanted to snatch Percy s hand from Annabeth and give her my Don t you have a heart glare Oh nicoWell not everything about Nico is pure drama There was a scene when Nico was so cute I wanted to bring him home lol view spoiler When he was turned to a corn plant and when he returned to human and he said that he had a nightmare about popcorn hide spoiler That was hilarious I hope he hadscenes like that.So that s it I LOVED IT It may not be the same as the past series PJO , not that silly and juvenile, but the characters becamereal to me Goods job Mr Rick Riordan, as usual.Now book five view spoiler Blood of Olympus Wow that sounds scary hide spoiler , please please come a little faster At least make it on the first week of October I know the ending of the House of Hades which I loved btw isn t much of a cliffhanger, but I still want to know badly what will happen ESPECIALLY ABOUT NICO He s the most angry and miserable character I ve ever met, Akhlys and he would make a fantastic, albeit desperate, pair I want Nico to have a peace of mind, he deserves it Please Nico stop being angry and let people love you because believe me, a lot of us fangirls really really have a massive crush on you.Oh my gosh this is such a good book I hope Rick would write another Percy series after the Heroes of Olympus I m not ready to let Percy go.EarlierUPDATE Oct 3, 2013 Look at this ALL OF THE SEVEN are getting a POV in the House of Hades I did NOT expect that, but YAY But is my understanding of what he said correct Sorry, I m a little giddy I can t think straight lol.THE COVER Percy and Annabeth are on the cover.Percy and Annabeth are on the cover.Percy and Annabeth are on the cover.It only means one thing We ll be getting a POV from either of them I m guessing it would be Annabeth s.But oh dear, they don t look good in the picture They look so beat up But at least they are together Together. Gosh that should be their. um, tagline Or slogan or whatever I AM FREAKING EXCITED EARLIER I have a feeling we won t see Percy and Annabeth in this book If it s possible, we will see them on the last chapters already sobs I have to qualify this I think we won t see Percy and Annabeth s POVs here We can only know what s happening to them thru demigod dreams and visions whatnot I know, I know This is unacceptable Maybe Annabeth s POV will be included too Since her POV was not included in TLH or SoN NEWSFLASH I just read Riordan s blog and he wrote this The one thing I can promise regarding The House of Hades SPOILER ALERT At the end of Mark of Athena, Nico senses that Percy and Annabeth are still alive, despite the incredible danger they are in Nico is right They are alive You WILL find out what is happening to them in the next book They don t disappear from the story END SPOILER ALERT THAT S FREAKING AWESOME GUYS Whose POV we will be seeing view spoiler I think House of Hades would be told from Jason, Frank and Hazel s POV Meh hide spoiler I mean, I like Hazel and Frank with Leo joining the mix but Jason No I don t like him that much Maybe I was influenced by Piper s POV on MoA, she being obsessed with Jason, as usual Through Piper s eyes we saw Jason as too perfect Um. WHO WANTS PERFECT Perfect is boring and not really believable, I mean there s a reason why most people root for the underdog right Also she compared Jason to Percy, and I din t like her comparison view spoiler She thought Percy was unimpressive compared to Jason hide spoiler At least I won t be seeing Piper s thoughts in this one That s definitely a plus Jasper fans, no hatin please DI just wish the love story won t be the main plot, it s too cuddly for my taste LOL Oh well, another year of waiting for the House of Hades Until then, I should read MoA again and savor Percy and Annabeth s moments together I won t be seeing them for a long time Bob says hello AND I BROKE IN TEARS WHAT IS WRONG WITH ME. Oh, these books are going to destroy me However, despite loving this, there is something different which makes it a bit hard to decide on the rating I feel like there was something missing in this story, maybe too many characters, so something had to be cut Because since there are so many of them, people tend to find favourites, and then they wish forcontent about them This book had me totally destroyed, I did not see this coming at all and it was so painfully good, I just cannot tak Oh, these books are going to destroy me However, despite loving this, there is something different which

there wereof Jason Piper moments because so far they are quickly becoming my favourite couple I adore Percy and Annabeth they are the original Riordan couple I could not wait for them to get together And I m so happy for them.I hope that Percy and Nico will talk and everything will be all right forever.I m not a fan of Happily Ever After but I so much need a happy ending for Nico and a book for him as well.I finally started to like Leo view spoiler , please, be with Calypso hide spoiler However, I still don t like Hazel or Frank They just do not fit with the rest, to be honest view spoiler Well, I hope that there will be different ending than that Jason ll go to the Half blood Camp and Percy to the Jupiter Camp hide spoiler Maybe this book wasn t perfect, but I m not able to give only 4 I would feel terrible Because these books are just so awesome and leave me grasping for the next book Seereviews at YA Midnight ReadsSo the air was acid The water was misery The ground was broken

Seereviews at YA Midnight ReadsSo the air was acid The water was misery The ground was broken glass Everything here was designed to hurt and kill.I have never been a fan of including gifs in my reviews however The House of Hades, calls for some exception Not only have I been dying for a year to read this, but also because right now, I m a mess of emotions and words I mean, I was already crying when my mum snagged a copy for me while I was at school the second the bookstore opened And then I abandoned all my review books so I could read The House of Hades ASAP because IT S THE HOUSE OF HADES, DUH Proceed onwards Picking up from where the torturous The Mark of Athena left off, we have Hazel, Frank, Leo, Jason, Piper, Nico and Coach Hedge on the Argo II, on the way to meet Percy and Annabeth on the other side of The Doors of Death However the task is not that simple, a war is brewing between the Greeks and Romans, Gaia is becoming stronger and the Athena Parthenos needs to be in its rightful place The House of Hades, second last book before the finale which has been named The Blood of Olympus has a little something for all types of readers Action, mythology, humour, romance, sacrifices, war and monsters are all present And, trust me people you will not be disappointed no matter how high your hopes were, no matter how excited you were, no matter how much of your body you would sell for this No Disappointments YAYA The House of Hades, has whopping 7 main characters and 2 sub main characters Crazy Yes It has always been my greatest concern that The House of Hades would make my brain hurt from attempting to distinguish apart such an ample number of personalities Yet, I seriously love love loved the characters in this book Percy, our hero since the beginning has never beenselfless and humorous He may be kickass but he still has one big big heart and a very funny personality However I couldn t help but think that Bob the Titan, yes, Bob is back was one of thelaughable characters here Percy had a little less due to his situation, a.k.a in the deepest part of hell Annabeth, wholly badass, full of hope and smart Always with a plan While Percy and Annabeth are in Tartarus, they face some of the biggest challenges and curses of their lives their abilities are stretch to their maximum and above And their romance was like THE SWEETEST EVER I ll admit, their isn t as much as I was wishing for but Rick Riordan makes it the most realistic and every time they d hold hands I was like Together, they make an ass kicking team.Hazel was actually one of theimportant ones in The House of Hades I grew rather attached to her, she s so determined to save everyone, so full of heart, so determined I really wanted to tackle hug her Leo, our cool guy with plenty of cute arrogance Frank, lots of character development in this one, our shy and unsure one Coach Hedge, we go a littleinto his history and still and get plenty of his love for killing and butchering And Nico OMG My fictional crush 3 I did get heartbroken though Heart So Broken Into Shreds Piper and Jason they were just meh As usual Not that they ruined my enjoyment of the book but I am just no fan.I do think, while Percy Jackson and the Olympians and The Heroes of Olympus are full of fun and action, it s also been teaching me a lot of Greek Mythology and Roman Mythology along the way, in fact, I ve become really interested in Greek Myths, and am planning to learnabout religion and mythology for my free electives at school which is exciting I am so, so grateful to have read this series Some books, you read and love but they may not teach you as much as this one Rick s books come with the extra of some knowledge If an author can teach a bit of Greek Myths while writing an attaching story, I do believe that all MG and YA readers so give this series a go.All in all, The House of Hades was no disappointment apart from the fact that I have to wait ANOTHER year for the sequel cries Oh, geez Oh, wow This Me Now.Give it to me before I freak out Too late.LOOK AT THAT COVER Oh, geez Oh, wow This Me Now.Give it to me before I freak out Too late.LOOK AT THAT COVER "/>
