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 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.
This paperback edition will include a never-before-seen short story, "The Crown of Ptolemy," in which Percy and Annabeth fight alongside Carter and Sadie Kane, and more bonus content!

    Riordan is my favorite author. I read a thousand times the Percy Jackson series and Heroes of Olympus is my favorite series ever. The House of Hades made me worried about Percy and Annabeth, made me laugh and hope that Gaea and the giants would finally get defeated. A PERFECT BOOK!!!!!

      After Annebeth and Percy fall into tartarus they are stranded down there. While Percy and Annebeth are down in Tartarus their friends are on the surface looking for them. After a while, Jason has a dream of the praetor of Camp Jupiter Reyna. When they are going to the House of Hades they stop by a palace. While they are there they find cupid. near the end of the book, Percy and Annabeth are trying to reach the doors of death. I would recommend this book and this series fo 6th graders and 5th grades with a higher reading level.

                I haven't read this in awhile, but I still like it. It is definitely on my "good books" list. Plus, it inspired me to right my own mythology book! But of course no copy write, and I made up my own mythology. My book even has 373 pages. I love fantasy so much!
