   The House of Hades: You know the name – the fourth book in the Heroes of Olympus series by Rick Riordan. The series that has been on the New York Time’s Best Seller’s List for nearly sixty-five weeks! This book was released just a couple of weeks ago, and it has flown off the shelves. Every fan is dying to read what happens after Mark of Athena’s enormous cliff-hanger, and most readers obviously thought that it was worth the wait.

   The novel starts where it left off: Five members of the Prophecy of Seven have to let go of their grief over Percy and Annabeth – the main characters – falling into Tartarus. They must make it to the Ancient Lands of Greek Epirus to open the Doors of Death and save their friends. Of course, the gods have to make everything complicated.

   The House of Hades is intense, to warn you. Many swords, bows and arrows, daggers, and other terrifyingly mythical weapons will emerge throughout the book. If you are skittish around bloodshed, don’t read. For the others who are fans of the books: Please, read! If you are a fan of giant predatory sea turtles, read (don’t ask)!The book is engaging; when you start, you cannot put it down. From the very start, you are hooked on every last word. New monsters, gods, giants, and creatures of the earth we have never seen before approach and attack. The demigods discover new things about themselves and their companions as they travel through their quest, and you are very compelled to stay up into the late hours of night finishing it! The book, incredibly moving and relative, is a definite must read!
