Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spine where we post upcoming releases we're highly anticipating. My pre-publication selection for this week's Waiting on Wednesday is The House of Hades by Rick Riordan.
The House of Hades
Series: The Heroes of Olympus
Release Date: October 8th, 2013
Publisher: Disney Hyperion
Waited on by: Mel
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 only thing you need to know about me that is completely essential is that I FREAKING LOVE THE PERCY JACKSON SERIES. And Percabeth. And Nico. And I am dying because there are only 26 days, 7 hours, 24 minutes and.... 34 no wait! 30 seconds (no wait! It's changing again!) till the release.
Just take a minute to admire that cover, it screams Percabeth and when it got released, I may as well died. Percabeth = my life. I think I could get money out of campaigning Percabeth because of this reunion. THIS.
*sobs in happiness*
so yeah. This is the only book that I have really been waiting for all year. And I want it. Now.
