Waiting on Wednesday #34: The House of Hades by Rick Riordan

Posted July 10, 2013 by Debby in Uncategorized

This is a weekly meme, hosted at Breaking the Spine, spotlighting upcoming releases that we’re anticipating.

Title: The House of Hades
Author: Rick Riordan
Release Date: October 8th, 2013
Publisher: Disney Hyperion
Series: The Heroes of Olympus (#4 of 5)
Pages: 594
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. Goodreads

Oh god guys. After the massive plot twist cliffhanger at the end of The Mark of Athena, The House of Hades has been on my “desperately want” “must buy immediately when released” list. I need to know what happens next. And I need more Percabeth feels.

    1. THAT COVER. OMG. When it was revealed, I had a feelsplosion. Those two are absolutely amazing together and one of my favorite couples EVER.

    2. D: That's really bad. You should fix that ASAP xD I read them for the first time last year but was completely addicted, instantly. They're so much fun. I hope you get around to it soon!

    3. Yes! Do start it! I didn't like the first two too much (The Lost Hero and The Son of Neptune) but The Mark of Athena was AMAZING and just made the whole series that much more awesome. I hope you can read them soon!
