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.

About the Author

Rick Riordan is a teacher and a writer, and has won many awards for his mystery novels for adults. He says that the idea for Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief first came to him while he was teaching Greek mythology at middle school in San Francisco. But rumour has it that Camp Half Blood actually exists, and Rick spends his summers there recording the adventures of young demigods. Some believe that, to avoid a mass panic among the mortal population, he was forced to swear on the River Styx to present Percy Jackson's story as fiction. Rick lives in Texas (apart from his summers on Half Blood Hill) with his wife and two sons.

    Comments about House of Hades:

    Okay, so I'd been waiting to read this book since it came out and it'd be so long since the Mark of Athena that I was afraid I'd hyped it up too much for myself and that'd I would be disappointed. The cliff hanger at that last one killed me and I couldn't wait to see what happened next. And it was a total thriller, I loved it, it was everything I wanted. I can't wait for the next one.

      Comments about House of Hades:

      Latest hit instalment from the news series sequel to the best-selling Percy Jackson series. Further complications and twists with our adventurers as they journey to the Underworld. Just as good, if not better, than the Kane Chronicles series with an older more adolescent cast -- reflected in the higher page count. Great for younger and older readers who like good-natured fun, thrills and excitement at heart. Love the one-liners! Riordan again serves up a treat!
