This book is wonderful! I couldn't put it down for even a minute and was so sad when it finished. Reading the final installment will be very bittersweet.

I love this book sooooo much!!!!!!!!! I just can't wait to get the next one! I think this is my favorite book in this series!

I don't want to sound like a d*****t, but I think half of the commenters here are overlooking Riordan's intention. I feel as if though this was his way to support equal marriage and rights and such. It might not look like it, but there are countless number of teenagers and pre-teenagers who're confused about their sexual orientation, and Riordan probably wanted to give those readers someone to relate to, which is Nico di Angelo. I've always found Nico.. Mysterious (no duh, Sherlock), but after that whole paragraph.. I found him more interesting. I've always overlooked Nico, I'm gonna be honest with you (*chants* Connor Stoll, Connor Stoll), but after this book, I've learnt how to defend Nico's character a whole, hella lot more. For those who're complaining about his character being homosexual at such a young age, let us all please take a moment to acknowledge Nico should be in his late seventies or early eighties if he wasn't trapped in the Lotus Casino. And Nico right now, is currently fourteen, and I personally know someone younger, who is bisexual.

There was nothing wrong with Nico's character before this book, and there isn't either after it. I don't want to sound harsh, but if you loved Nico before 'it' was revealed, and now you don't because of it.. Well, I'm gonna sit here and question your very existence as a 'Nico Fangirl'. One does not dislike someone else just because of his or her sexual orientation. Alexander Gideon Lightwood from the Mortal Intstruments is homosexual. People will probably say that it's okay because he's older, it's okay because that series is in the YA fiction.. But come to think of it, according to Riordan, the Heroes of Olympus series is not juvenile fiction, but instead is for Young Adult readers. I don't get why people yack on and on about Nico's orientation when in the Mark of Athena, Percy and Annabeth slept together. Nobody seemed to complain about that (smh). Sexual Content? There was only one complaint about that, and it was about kissing. The intimacy was up there in the Mark of Athena, and yet, everyone seemed to overlook that fact, once again.

I'd love to spend my night and defend Riordan's characters (Jason and Nico especially) and also appreciate unappreciated characters (Frank *smile* and Reyna), but I'm off to read more Kuroshitsuji.

Love The series im 12 and this book is AMAZING

I love these books !! but I do agree with Christine98 _ Rick Riordan really screwed Nico up for me, I mean Nico is like my favorite! I try to block that part out.> but other then that the book is awesome and I cant wait for Blood of Olympus!! the Percy Jacksons and the Heroes of Olympus are my favorite series :)!!!!!!

I love the fact that Rick Riordan is completely committed to his characters. He knows them inside and out and will not let others sway his decisions on how to proceed with his book. He knows how important it is that every child be able to find themselves somewhere in literature but includes them in in a healthy and natural way.

Two more months until the blood of Olympus!!!!! Can't wait!!!! Nico appalled me the first time I read it, but the second time i was still disgusted, but was able to get over it and poke for details. I agree with asroos. I also come for a christian family, and am one myself.

hey guy_ Leo is not gay. Nico is. you should get your facts strait, stupid. I bet you never read the book. O_O

At the end of mark of Athena percy and Annabeth fall into the depths of Tartarus and the five demigods put aside the grief and tried to close the doors of death while Gaea is weakening and percy and Annabeth are at the other side of Tartarus and has to seal both sides of the doors of death and in a month the Romans will come to camp half blood and destroy it

Spoiler Alert:

Nico had fled Camp Half-Blood after Bianca's death not just because he felt rejected by the other campers as the son of Hades, and not just because Percy had let him down by failing to keep Bianca safe--he has romantic feelings for Percy, which he could not deal with.When Percy and Annabeth arrive at the Doors of Death, which is a magic elevator from Tartarus to the world similar to the elevator in the Empire State Building in New York providing access to Olympus, they find Gaea's Giants and other monsters boarding the elevator. Bob tells Percy and Annabeth how they can escape: when the doors open, they have twelve minutes to enter the elevator, making sure no one else enters with them, before the doors close. Bob volunteers to drive the Titans Hyperion and Coeus, who are guarding the elevator, away from the doors and hold the elevator open so that Percy and Annabeth may escape Tartarus. Percy protests, since he knows that this will mean Bob's death, but Bob insists. They are then confronted by Tartarus, the god of the pit, who tries to stop them and is confronted by Damasen; together, Bob and Damasen come to their aid and hold off Tartarus while Annabeth and Percy escape the underworld.

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 Percys instructions to find the mortal side of the Doors of Death. If they can fight their way through the Gaeas 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 dont succeed, Gaeas 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

Sexual Content: Absurd pornographic images come to mind when reading this book.

Sexual Content: There are some slightly inappropriate themes ongoing with a lot of the relationships herein. It's kind of wink-wink in nature, though, so not much to be worried about.

Violence: Lots of violence; not as gory as most books, but still present.

Sexual Content: there is a gay character but that should not stop you from reading this book

Other: I love how everyone mentions *spoilers* that Nico is gay, but dosn't mention any of the other relationships in the book that go way further that whatever *more spoilers* that weird thing with cupid was. odd, odd scene. Also, it felt thrown in. Like, from a story standpoint it did nothing. and now i'm on a rant so I will leave.

Sexual Content: If you're homophobic, I suggest backing away from certain chapters of this book, as the character of Nico di Angelo comes out as gay. While he gets support from all of his fellow demigods - and almost all of the readers - understand this before reading.

Sexual Content: nico is gay with percy

Hazel made the mistake of looking over the rail. A dark, spherical shape hurtled toward her. She thought: Why is the moon coming at us? Then she yelped and hit the deck. The huge rock passed so close over head it blew the hair out of her face.

During the first attack, Hazel almost ate a boulder. She was peering into the fog, wondering how it could be so difficult to fly across one stupid mountain range, when the ships alarm bells sounded.
"Hard to port!" Nico yelled from the foremast of the flying ship.

'Cheeseburgers,' his stomach replied.
'Shut up,' he thought.

"We've got a good crew," Percy said. "If I have to sail to my death--"
"You're not dying on me, Seaweed Brain," Annabeth said. "Remember? Never separated again. And after we get home . . . "
"What?" Percy asked
She kissed him. "Ask me again, once we defeat Gaea."
He smiled, happy to have something to look forward to. "Whatever you say."

"Really? That would be a first. I'm the son of Hades. I might as well be covered in blood or sewage the way people treat me. And even that's not enough to set me apart. I have to be...to be..."

"I had a crush on Percy." Nico spat, "That's the truth. That's the big secret." He glared at Cupid, "Happy now?" For the first time, Cupid's gaze seemed sympathetic, "Oh i would'nt say love always makes you happy. sometimes it makes you incredibaly sad."

"How dare you send this...this charbroiled runt of a boy to ruin my tranquility!"

"You have to come with us," Annabeth pleaded. "The prophecy says 'foes bear arms to the doors of death'. I thought it meant romans and greeks, but that's not it. the line means us- demigods, a titan, a giant. We need you to close the doors!"
The drakon roared outside, closer this time. Damasen gently pulled his hand away.
"No, child," he murmured My curse is here. I cannot escape it."
"Yes you can," Annabeth said. "Don't fight the drakon. Figure out a way to break the cycle! Find another fate."

"Stupid rock gods!" Leo yelled from the helm. "That's the third time I've had to replace the mast! You think they grow on trees?"

Nico frowned. "Masts are from trees."

"That's not the point!"
