Hello all you Rick Riordan fans! As most of you already know today is a very important day for the Riordan, Heroes of Olympus fandom.
Today is the day the cover for House of Hades, the fourth book, was revealed. After the cliff-hanger ending of The Mark of Athena, (heh-heh, see what I did there?), fans of the series were left gasping for more.
Although the book is not released until October 8 2013, the cover and plot summary/blurb were released today:
Blurb: 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.
The cover is so beautiful and the blurb makes me really want to catch up on the series, but don't worry guys- finishing the Percy Jackson series and the Heroes of Olympus series is my summer reading goal!
