I continue to love this series for vast and wide reasons, and this book was just another penny in the tin for Rick where comes to me. I continue to love all the groups, the things they go through, the choices they made. I'm glad Rick took a stand on the controversial issue he did, because I think there need to be more LBGT characters in every single type of YA fiction out there.

I'm holding out breathlessly for the next book in this series and the conclusion to it all. ( )

Hazel stands at a crossroads. She and the remaining crew of the Argo II 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 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, 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.

Annabeth and Percy are overwhelmed. How will the two of them make it through Tartarus? Starving, thirsty, and in pain, they are barely able to stumble on in the dark and poisonous landscape that holds new horrors at every turn. They have no way of locating the Doors of Death. Even if they did, a legion of Gaea's strongest monsters guards the Doors on the Tartarus side. Annabeth and Percy can't exactly launch a frontal assault.

Despite the terrible odds, Hazel, Annabeth, Percy, and the other demigods of the prophecy know that there is only one choice: to attempt the impossible. Not just for themselves, but for everyone they love. Even though love can be the riskiest choice of all.

I don't think I can read this kind of book anymore, it's a shame since I bought all of them but stoped on this one.

The story follows the Greek demigods Annabeth Chase, Leo Valdez, Piper McLean, Nico di Angelo, and Percy Jackson; and the Roman demigods Jason Grace, Hazel Levesque, and Frank Zhang on their quest to close the Doors of Death, stop the Giants from raising Gaea, and prevent war between Camp Jupiter and Camp Half-Blood.

Rick Riordan has yet to fail me. I can't even express how much I love this book.
Excuse me while I go collect my thoughts and feels*Update*
I have been a die hard fan of the Percy Jackson series ever since 6th grade when I saw it at the store and thought "Hey, this looks good!" I'm so glad I found this series though because it opened me up to the world of Greek mythology and got me hooked on it. I love all of Rick Riordan's writing. It makes me feel like I'm with Percy and his friends at Camp Half-Blood fighting random monsters. And not only is Riordan able to write epic battle scenes, but he also includes the most adorable romance of all time. I ship Percabeth so muchThis may be a middle grade book, but it will capture the hearts of people of all ages. ( )
