Ohmygods my heart can't take the pain.

My babies were in pain. Why why whywhywhywhywhy I needed my babies taken out of hell.
Finally they were.
It was horrible and beautiful all at once.
Wow. This books is a masterpiece.
Alright, as always, I'm not going through the book and reviewing simply because RICK WRITES TOO MUCH.

I'll say what's floating around my mind right now.

First of all: My Percabeth was beautiful as ever.
MOMENT TO APPRECIATE: It takes Percy about five and a half years to discover that Riptide could also be used as a pen. And even then it wasn't Percy, it was Annabeth. <3

Second: REYNA IS QUEEN. 'nuff said.

Third: Percy's journey in Tartarus, having all of his previous battles brought against him-- it was horrifying. It scared me a whole lot more than having Percy's Dark Side showing did. This was horrifying. Annabeth thinking that Percy abandoned her--- I can't.

Fourth: Bob says hello.

And I'm officially dead from an attack of the feels.

In this fourth instalment in the 'The Heroes of Olympus' series, Percy and Annabeth attempt to find a way out of Tartarus. With no food, water, or shelter from monsters, it becomes increasingly difficult. Their strength is waning and their hope is dying. Will they reach the Doors of Death in time, or will they perish in the Pit of Darkness?

This book was horrible. Percy and Annabeth are exploring the underworld ONCE AGAIN. Same old villains, same old storyline, same old characters. I thought heroes of olympus would be new and exciting and this is what I get. Riordan should have stopped with Percy Jackson book 5. This is incredibly disappointing.

The House of Hades was a great book and is the 2nd to last book of the series. I liked it because it tells about how Percy and Annabeth go through Tartarus and open the Doors of Death. I would give this book five stars. -Won, age 11

Still, my one true pairing may be Percabeth. That probably won't change for a bit, seeing that this book is so awesome. Let's just say that a regular person would go on a date in a location that nice and laid-back. Except here, Percy and Annabeth aren't just regular people. If you have read the books before you would know that here, they happen to choose the absolute nicest of all billions of places to have an adventurous date. Just being sarcastic here, sorry about that. But if you really want a calmer read, then why are you even reading Rick Riordan's stuff? 5/5 Stars.

"Use the catapults!" cried the coach.
"P.S.," Hazel read, "Don't even think about using your catapults."
"Curse it!" Said the coach. "This guy is good."

"Annabeth?" Percy said again. "You're planning something. You've got that I'm-planning-something look."
"I don't have an I'm-planning-something look."
"Yeah, you totally do. Your eyebrows knit and your lips press together and-"
"Do you have a pen?" She asked him.
"You're kidding, right?" He brought out Riptide.
"Yes, but can you actually write with it?"
"I-I don't know," he admitted. "Never tried."

"Yeah, you bet Romani." Percy bared his forearm and showed them the brand he'd gotten at Camp Jupiter - the SPQR mark, with the trident of Neptune. "You mix Greek and Roman, and you know what you get? You get BAM!"

Annabeth pressed her lips to Percy’s ear. “I love you.”
She wasn’t sure he could hear her—but if they died, she wanted those to be her last words.”

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.
