PRAISE FOR THE HOUSE OF HADES

Adventure fans will relish the action as their heroes confront formidable foes, while readers who have come to love the characters will enjoy following the different individuals as they take the stage in scenes that are usually dramatic, often witty, and occasionally surprising. A satisfying, penultimate entry in the Heroes of Olympus series.--Booklist Online
PRAISE FOR THE HOUSE OF HADES

Fans won't be disappointed as the cliff-hanger ending from the previous book, The Mark of Athena, leads to further exciting adventures by the intrepid demigods. . . As Annabeth and Percy struggle to survive Tantarus's poisonous atmosphere and creatures, the other demigods must undergo harsh trials. . . but they learn and grow mentally and physically from their experiences. The heroes realize that they cannot change their parentage but they can control their legacy. Fans will be thrilled to know the series continues with The Blood of Olympus in 2014.--School Library Journal
PRAISE FOR THE HOUSE OF HADES

In this adventure, victories are hard-won and the essence of bravery nuanced, making the journey as satisfying as it is entertaining.--Kirkus
PRAISE FOR THE LOST HERO

Readers longing for a return to Camp Half-Blood will get their wish . . . the action scenes come frequently as the three heroic teens fight monstrous enemies in North American locales . . . Flashes of humor lighten the mood at times, but a tone of urgency and imminent danger seems as integral to this series as the last. With appealing new characters within a familiar framework, this spin-off will satisfy the demand for more.--Booklist
PRAISE FOR THE MARK OF ATHENA

With a true storyteller's sense of pacing, Riordan creates another compelling adventure, right down to the cliff-hanger at the end. Stay tuned for volume four.----Booklist
PRAISE FOR THE MARK OF ATHENA

With his now-trademark zero-to-60 acceleration, the author engineers a ghostly possession to set Greeks and Romans at odds and initiates the Prophecy of the Seven, hurtling Annabeth, Percy, Piper, Leo, Hazel, Frank and Jason into a pell-mell flight on the magical trireme Argo II. Here, Riordan's infectious love for his subject matter really comes through, even as he takes some real risks with his characters. A literal cliffhanger leaves eager readers hanging; next stop: Greece-and Tartarus.--Kirkus Reviews
PRAISE FOR THE SON OF NEPTUNE

Fans will find plenty to cheer about as Percy and his allies move slowly toward fulfilling the mysterious Prophecy of Seven.--Kirkus Reviews
PRAISE FOR THE SON OF NEPTUNE

Should pacing and wit continue unabated into the third volume, whose foretold European setting promises further freshness, fans will eagerly await numbers four and five.--Kirkus Reviews
