This review is from: The House of Hades (Heroes of Olympus Book 4) (Heroes Of Olympus Series) (Kindle Edition)
We find ourselves in Tartarus on a long and dark journey with Percy and Annabeth. Riordan does a good job at depicting the depths of hell. You can almost imagine taking the journey with Percy and Annabeth and you grow to love Bob just as much as they do.
Meanwhile, Nico, Frank, Jason, Leo, Hazel and Piper continue on their journey to find the House of Hades. We are introduced to more Gods and Godesses who pose more challenges for the team. What I liked about this book is Leo and his encounter with a familiar but forgotten character who changes Leo to the core. How much we have yet to see. Also, Frank really proves to be a strong demigod in this book and grows into a true hero.
Overall, the story has progressed and the battle draws to a close but I'm not sure Riordan progressed the story enough in this book and it did seem to drag on in parts. This is why I've given it 4*'s and not 5*'s.
Let's see what the final installment brings next year. I do hope Percy and Annabeth get their wish and we don't lose too many along the way. Will the Greeks and Romans unite and save the Gods? Or is it best they remain seperated?
I look forward to finding out :)
