From 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.

I liked the first two of this series ok, but it really picked up in The Mark of Athena and I loved that book, and just as things were coming together...A MASSIVE CLIFFHANGER! I'm ready to find out what happens.

  8. I'm waiting for this one too! One of the most amazing fictional books ever. If you like Greek myth, have you read Starcrossed by Josephine Angelini? It's another awesome one, but it's a Greek myth from a different point of view. It talks about Helen of Troy. :)
