Publisher's Summary

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 from 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.

    Story
    "The heroes have a lot to overcome!"

    The plot gets darker and a lot more dangerous for the 7 on the quest. Secrets are revealed and fears continue to be faced. The heroes get a lot more opportunities to show what their strengths truly are and often surprise themselves.
    The story is really good. I liked the last narrator a lot better, but overall the story is more powerful.

    "lots of action"

    first, I was surprised by the different book reader. I wished they would have continued with the same person. however, after the first chapter, I got used to the new reader.
    this book has so much action, twists and turns! I really enjoyed that. also, this book makes you care about all of the characters. everyone is important.
    now, I really want to know what will happen next.

    "Different narrator very disappointing"

    Disappointed in the narration. Different narrator than previous books in the series and in my opinion just not up to par.

    "Why would you change narrators mis series?????"

    I like the story and author but dislike the decision to change narrators in the middle of the series. This narrator does a poor job distinguishing between

    "reader"

    I liked the reader of the other books. you shouldn't change in the middle of a series. they don't do the voices the same. it makes you picture the characters differently.

    "Pretty good"

    The story was really great. I loved it. But, I don't think nick chamian did a good job narrating. Annabeth sounded kind of weird. But apart from that, Loved it.

    Story
    "SWITCHING THE NARRATOR ALMOST RUINED THE BOOK!!"
    Would you listen to The House of Hades again? Why?

    No, because the narrator was so bad compared to the narrator of the first three books of the series. His voices for the characters made them sound so stupid and when he is not doing voices his regular voice has extreme vocal fry that drives me up a wall. I miss the original narrator :(


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Leo Valdez.. I already love the fact that he is the comic relief and his story is amazing, but adding the relationship between him and Calypso was a great addition to his story.


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    Narrator was awful.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    When Bob and the peaceful giant stood up to their creator to save Percy and Anabeth. Bob and little Bob are amazing!


    Any additional comments?

    Don't ever switch up a narrator mid series. Don't ever use a narrator with such bad vocal fry. Don't ever use a narrator that has the voice of a valley girl. Don't ever hire this narrator again!
