The House of Hades

written by Rick Riordan


The House of Hades is one of the sequels to the Percy Jackson series. The story follows a teenager who is a demigod. A demigod is a divine or supernatural being in classical mythology. One of the kids parent (mother or father) is a Greek god. Percy’s father is Poseidon the god of sea. Being the son of Poseidon allows Percy to control water, talk to sea life, and also talk to horses. With these powers Percy is sent on quests with other demigods.

The House of Hades picks up where the last book finishes off. Percy and Annabeth are trap in Tartarus. A place where all monsters go to when they die. Percy and Annabeth have to make their way through enemy territory and reach the doors of death and escape. Not only that but they have to seal the doors of death so that no more monsters can escape Tartarus.

The House of Hades is a great book to read if your into Greek mythology. The book does a great job at modernizing Greek mythology into today's times. Not only that but it can make you smile and laugh on how the book puts Greek gods and monsters in some situations. In overall The House of Hades is a book I recommend if your into adventure/fantasy novels.
