Waiting on Wednesday: The House of Hades - Rick Riordan

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

This week, I'm waiting on The House of Hades by Rick Riordan.

The House of Hades
Rick Riordan
Series:  Heroes of Olympus, #4
Release Date: October 8th, 2013

On Goodreads

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.

UGH.  I HAVE BEEN WAITING FOR THIS BOOK SINCE THE DAY THE MARK OF ATHENA CAME OUT. (The Mark of Athena is the 3rd book in this series.) I have bought and read every book in this series the day it came out, and it was so worth it. This series is a continuation of the Percy Jackson series, and it is just as fabulous. Rick Riordan aims to please with Percabeth and a love triangle between Reyna, Jason, and Piper. I'm so nervous for Percabeth (Percy and Annabeth, the main characters and my favorite ship of the series), I hope nothing but the best for them. I absolutely cannot wait until this book comes out, and I know I'll be first in line to get it.
