Praise For…


PRAISE FOR THE HOUSE OF HADES

"Fans won’t be disappointed as the cliff-hanger ending from the previous book, The Mark of Athena, leads to further exciting adventures by the intrepid demigods. . . As Annabeth and Percy struggle to survive Tantarus’s poisonous atmosphere and creatures, the other demigods must undergo harsh trials. . . but they learn and grow mentally and physically from their experiences. The heroes realize that they cannot change their parentage but they can control their legacy. Fans will be thrilled to know the series continues with The Blood of Olympus in 2014."—<EM>School Library Journal</EM>
