The House of Hades

Rick Riordan

How long could YOU survive in Tartarus?

Setting

The House of Hades starts off aboard the Argo II over the Apennines in Italy. Jason, Leo, Frank, Hazel, Piper, and Nico are trying to fight off the mountain gods summoned by Gaea. Eventually it switches over to Percy and Annabeth plummeting into the dark abyss of Tartarus.

Summary

Nothings better than falling into a black pit or trying to escape angry mountain gods to get to Greece. Unfortunately, Percy, Annabeth, Nico, Leo, Frank, Piper, Jason, and Hazel...they got stuck in the boat. Luckily, they have mad skills that could have the potential to save them, and the world as well.
