Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.
This week I’m Waiting on Wednesday for The House of Hades (Heroes of Olympus #4) by Rick Riordan (Disney-Hyperion):
NOTE: Summary contains major spoilers for The Mark of Athena.
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.
Why I’m looking forward to this book:
Because the ending of The Mark of Athena nearly killed me. I MUST know what will happen next, and how they’re going to fix everything. Also, I desperately want to know who’s going to narrate this story! Considering “Hades” is in the title, does that mean we may actually get a Nico point of view? One can only hope. Plus, this is a Rick Riordan book, and I will literally read pretty much anything he slaps his name on!
Release Date: October 8, 2013
