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 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.

The other heroes all go through their quests with their quirks and their powers beginn...
Once again I regret making the choice to binge-read and stick through a series of books. Normally life is too short to read bad books but I wanted an escape and the world of Percy Jackson was a familiar one. Sadly this just isn't holding up. Riordan seems most comfortable when writing Percy and An...
Our heroes struggle alone on their impossible quest. I really liked how much we learned about Nicco in this book. I loved how Leo changed through out the story and has become a mire in-depth character. Audiobook note: there is a different reader for this book and he talks SO Slow so I ended listeni...
