The House of Hades

 Um, apology accepted?  Love you too, Rick!

The demigod crew of the Argo II is standing at a crossroads.  They could return home with the Athena Parthenos statue and try to stop Camp-Half Blood and Camp Jupiter from going to war.  Or they could continue on their quest to find the House of Hades, where they might be able to open the Doors of Death, rescue their friends Percy and Annabeth from Tartarus (if they have survived), and prevent monsters from being reincarnated in the mortal world.  Whichever road they decide to take, they have to hurry, because time is running out.  Gaea, the bloodthirsty Earth Mother, has set the date of August 1 for her rise to power.

Honestly, reading this book felt like I was going home.  The characters are so real – they’re my friends.  So, of course, it was a page turner.  I had to wait to get my hands on it – I like to have all my books in either paperback or hardcover, and my other Heroes of Olympus books are in paperback – but it was worth it.  I was a bit rusty on some of the details because I had to wait in between books, but I loved it all the same.
