The House of Hades (Heroes of Olympus #4)
   by: Rick Riordan
 
Expected Publication: Oct. 8, 2013
 

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
 
 
My friends! If you have never picked up a Rick Riordan book: I beg you. WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR?! This man is a writing genius. I am a huge fan of his Percy Jackson series (love me some Greek mythology). I loved his Kane Chronicles (Egyptian mythology, say whaaa?!) And now he brings us the Heroes of Olympus! (Greek AND Roman mythology! AND it brings back my boy Percy and crew!) ZOMG. I am so ready for this one. I absolutely loved The Mark of Athena because we see our characters growing up and this is becoming more YA than MG. And Book 3 left off with a HUGE cliffhanger! Holy crap. I need this book like whoa.
 
What are you waiting on this week my friends?

  1. I'm so behind on this series! I recently bought The Son of Neptune and it keeps getting pushed further and further down my TBR pile :\ But I did love The Lost Hero! I hope I can get back to this series soon!

    Great pick!

    1. Aww! I know how it is though. I've gotten behind on a few series myself. Loved the Son of Neptune! And Mark of Athena is really great too! I love that now the characters are growing up a bit, Riordan is also moving up to the next step too (age-wise)

    1. Oh! I love Rick Riordan! :D He's so good! But then again, I am a huge mythology fan so it was super fun to read about all these myths that I already read a long time ago! Even if you don't care for mythology, I still think they're fun reads!

  10. Ooo, you know, I haven't been keeping up with THIS series - I've only read The Lost Hero. I loved all of the Percy Jackson books! But I haven't had much interest for this series. My sister, on the other hand, LOVES them. I'll have to get her this one for Christmas. Hope you get the chance to read it sometime early! And I hope you enjoy it, Jess :)

  13. Ahhhh THIS specific book in the series is making me even more eager to finally freaking get into the Heroes of Olympus!! Hades ♥ <--not sure what that says about me but anyways. I seriously enjoyed the Percy Jackson books and I've been eager to continue with the continuation...especially with the addition of Roman myths! Oh and I'm glad to see you loved the Kane books, I own book 1 but I still haven't gotten around to reading it yet (ugh!), Egyptian myths = WIN. Brilliant pick Jessica :D
