Rated 4 out of 5 by from Dark adventure captures readers Dark adventure captures readers House of Hades is the fourth book in the series Heroes of Olympus. It starts Annabeth, Percy, Hazel, Nico, Leo, Frank, Piper, Jason and Coach Hedge who are all half human and half Roman or Greek gods- called demigods. Each of them has special powers and they are on a quest to save the world from Gaea’s forces and monsters. In this book they specifically need to close the doors of death so it will take a long time for monsters to reform and come back to earth. If they don’t close the doors, the monsters can pass freely from their world called Tartarus to ours and destroy the earth. Percy and Annabeth are facing danger and trials in Tartarus and the other 5 demigods are facing dangers and trials on the earth side. while Percy Jackson and Annabeth Chase are stuck in Tartarus trying to get to their side of the doors of death while facing thirst, hunger and so many monsters because well they are where the monsters come to be. On the earth surface the other 6 demigods named Hazel, Frank, Jason, Piper, Leo, and Nico who wasn't originally part of the quest, and the satyr that is hilarious Coach Hedge, are trying to get to their side of the doors of death. The targeted audience is for teens and preeteens because the characters from the book might be facing the same problems like love life etc, it also aims for teens and preeteens because there is a lot if action. It has a bunch of information of the Greek and Roman mythology. You can look at the back of the book at the glossary where it will describe what all the monsters are and what powers the gods have and what they are good at. I gave this book a 4.5/5 because every few the chapters the perspectives change like from Hazel to Frank etc. The characters are described wery well as well as their personalities, the characters also grow a lot in the book but not just in height or age but also in character. Pros There was a lot of action, including fighting monsters, escaping dungeons, escaping death and terrible situations The roman and greek characters are like real people you can relate to even though they are demigods You can learn greek and roman terms/gods/creatures Riordan writes in a way that they come alive and you can imagine how horrible it would be to fight them Cons There are lots of confusing words- especially when a bunch of them are included in one paragraph, its hard to follow We don’t learn very much about Jason- he remains Piper’s boyfriend, but just keeps on getting hit on the head and doesn’t add much to the story line It takes a long time to read through because he switches between what’s happening to Percy and Annabeth and then back to the 5 demigods on the surface. If you put it all together- 5 chapters to include all the points of view, only moves the story forward an hour in the plot. I definitely recommend reading this book, especially if you have already read the other books in the series. You will enjoy getting to know your favourite characters even better and be pulled into the story through the intense action, nail biting suspense, and vivid descriptions of battle scenes between the monsters and characters. Every chapter has you holding your breath as the characters fight for their lives and overcome impossible circumstances. It will be a book you won’t want to put down.
