The House Of Hades The House of Hades is a great book filled with suspense that keeps you on the edge of your seat. It has seven points of view because of the prophecy of seven which is a prophecy about seven demigods who must complete a quest to close the doors of death. The seven points of view are Percy's, Annabeth's, Leo's, Hazel's, Piper's, Jason's, and Frank's. The seven travel all around the world and encounter many hardships to get to their final destination. The plot twists around but you always have a grasp on what's going on. It's a great book and interesting if you like fiction books. When you get started it's hard to put the book down! The House of Hades is book number 4 of the series “Heroes of Olympus” and is six hundred pages of pure goodness! I give it two thumbs up! But let me just say… things aren't always as they seem.

The House of Hades by Rick Riordan is yet another astounding edge of your seat fantasy, sure to impress. This second to last book in the Heroes of Olympus series provides that one thing that Rick’s readers desire, suspense. Percy Jackson and his friends desperately try to save one another, all the while fighting their own battles. Rick Riordan has once again mastered the art of inspiring others to explore the world of the gods. Characterization and description is truly apparent in this novel. At the beginning of each chapter Rick has each of the protagonists narrate. Pick up the House of Hades today, you won’t regret it.

I have obsessed with what this book would be like once it finally came out. I was afraid it would disappoint me, but I was pleasantly surprised. It was everything I hoped it would be, and more! Dark and haunting, with several plot twists and character surprises. It reminded me of how much I loved the original Percy Jackson books when they first came out. I love this book, and how well Rick Riordan managed to capture the true darkness of the depths of Tartarus. I can't wait for the next one!

When I first picked up this book, I was very apprehensive. Of course I wanted to know what happened to Percy and Annabeth after that terrible, and literal, cliff hanger at the end of the Mark of Athena, but I didn't expect Riordan to be so good at writing dark. This book is possibly one of the darkest books he was written. From the description of Tartarus that originates from both classic myth and his own imagination to the descriptions of some of the gods, the book was very well written.

To start, I'll say that The House of Hades was most definitely the best of The Heroes of Olympus series. I went to get the book the day it came out, and I could not put it down for a second. Reading the book left me with excitement and sadness, and I have been wanting to talk to someone about it, but no one has finished it yet. Thank you, Rick, for not letting me down. Every page left me going back for more. The book was perfectly paced and each character's POV was extremely well written. If you haven't read it yet, read The House of Hades.
