The Heroes of Olympus, Book Four: The House of Hades Rick Riordan read online review & book description:

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 my favorite book by Rick Riordan, which is saying a lot because the Percy Jackson and hero’s of Olympus series are my favorites of all time. But House of Hades shows everything in a new light. While before Percy and Annabeth’s relationship had been fun to read now it’s much more than that. The bond created when two people share near death experiences is shown perfectly by Riordan and Percy and Annabeth aren’t the only interesting things in this book. His other Demigod characters have just as much crazy dramatic life or death situations plaguing them. I like Frank and Hazel, Jason and Piper have a strange background with his amnesia and all, and Leo and Calypso I think are just there for laughs, and it works. Honestly I almost never read the series for fear it would be about pagan gods and weird Greek rituals, but it’s nothing close to that. It’s funny and tense and full of can’t put it down cliffhangers (I’m looking at you Mark Of Athena!) I can honestly say this book touched me and was one of those rare books you remember for the rest of your life. And the Percebeth moments made you want to laugh and cry and give them a hug because after all they’ve been through, THIS?? why does Rick torture them so? Hopefully Tower of Nero will reveal that they finally get a break! Anyone who can read, MUST read this book.

    Right now it’s the quarantine and I don’t really have anything to do except read. I was reading a stupid trilogy called Inkheart and it was freakishly boring. But then I remembered that I got The Trials Of Apollo! Wait... then I also remembered that as I was reading the first book, first; it wasn’t nearly as good as Percy Jackson, and second; a good part of the book I couldn’t read without reading The Heroes Of Olympus! I got the series from amazon and I zipped through all the books until The House Of Hades, which I’m still reading. Also I AM really mad about that toooo big cliffhanger in the Mark Of Athena... anyway I’m-still in the middle of the book but it’s too good not to review it right now! I think that all of Rick Riordan’s books all have these little excruciatingly exiting short chases and monster battles, with multiple of these in each book with each story revolving around one of the demigods. In this book, The House Of Hades, he masters it the most... I don’t like to be one of those reviewers who spoil every sing,e big of the book so I’ll leave it there for now. The only bad thing I have to say about the book, is that I think Rick did a little bit better job on Mark Of Athena, but this book still masters the book satisfaction award! Also my favorite demigod is by far Percy Jackson, and one of my favorite goofy characters is Bob the titan, ( his real name being Iaepites ). Anyway I hope you enjoy this book a ton!
  • Great

  • A little boring.

    By L14m777
    It was not bad, but it was a little boring because Percy and Annabeth being stuck in Tartarus the whole time, and they weren’t doing much. It wasn’t the best Percy Jackson book.
  • Okay.

    I love Percy Jackson and Annabeth and Camp Half-Blood. I first read "The Lightning Thief" two years ago and fell in love with the Percy Jackson series. SO GOOD. This second series is good, but not nearly AS good. In the Percy Jackson series I felt the characters were on point, perfect, so real. It was descriptive and was so creative in the way it portrayed ANCIENT Greek mythology in a modern day light. The main character was witty and sarcastic and awesome. Annabeth is awesome, and so is Grover and Chiron and Rachel and all of them I'm glad my two favorites weren't forgotten in this series, because those five books were GREAT but seemed so short. I adore Percabeth. My thoughts on the new series: I am not as much of a fan of the 3rd person view as the 1st person view. Somehow it makes the characters seem more distant and less real when it used to be 1st person. Also, Percy and Annabeth remain my favorites. I think Frank and Hazel are cool, and Leo is funny. Piper and Jason....I don't know. I just feel like their relationship was too quick, too instant. Like, one day Jason wakes up on the bus and meets Piper. A month later they are boyfriend and girlfriend. Their relationship is just TOO perfect. Before Percabeth got to be Percabeth, Percy and Annabeth were friends for about 4 years and then fought a lot (Annabeth was jealous that Percy almost fell for another girl) before they finally got together. It was so real how they came together. With Piper and Jason, less so. Also, Leo and Calypso. What? I mean, I guess Leo needed somebody but they were even worse. Less than a week and Calypso kisses him? In Percy Jackson, the obstacles were well-crafted and the solutions were believable and made sense. In this book, the situations they land in are always near-impossible. It's like "there's a slight chance this MIGHT work" and then it always works. They just seem lazy, like plot devices. For example, Piper facing Khione. She uses her charmspeak to activate a metal dragon. How? Why? I have no idea, but it was really the only thing she had so Rick "made it work". Even with Percy and Annabeth in Tartarus (there was SO much Percabeth there) when Percy controlled the liquid poison to fight the misery goddess, how? Just because they were in Tartarus was the answer. So yeah.
