Book Review: The House of Hades by Rick Riordan (Heroes of Olympus #4)

Hey Guys!

One of the first things I did once I had gotten back to Vienna was paying the library a visit! I finally grabbed the two remaining parts in Rick Riordan’s Heroes of Olympus series and immediately sat down with The House of Hades!


The Plot:
Our favourite demigods are still trying to stop Gaia from rising and – well – destroying the world as we know it. They’ve already come a new way but no they are in the ancient lands which makes everything even more dangerous. But our heroes are fighting from both sides to close the Doors of Death. While Frank, Nico, Piper, Jason, Leo and Hazel make their way to the House of Hades, Percy and Annabeth have an even more difficult task to handle. They need to cross Tartarus to get to the doors. Will they make it?


The Rating:
It’s no secret that I’m a huge fan of Rick Riordan’s novel and a total sucker for Greek mythology.
I just love how he always comes up with something new and makes it his own. Even though some of the stories are well known, you will be surprised (and often amused) by what he makes of them!
Although this is already the fourth book in the series, it is still super exciting and never gets boring. At times I had the feeling that some tasks were almost completed too easily, I am prepared to overlook that tiny flaw.
The characters are all well written and I love that Riordan writes each chapter from another persons view. Thus, you get to know all of the heroes and kind of bond with each one of them.
You can clearly tell how much effort Rick Riordan puts in each one of his books and it definitely pays off.

So far I’ve loved all the Rick Riordan novel I laid eyes upon. The House of Hades is no exception! Fast paced, thrilling, exciting. What else could you wish for?


Did you read the book? Let me know what you think!
