Rick Riordan is an author who is well known for his popular series about a kid named Percy Jackson. Riordan's new series named Heroes of Olympus is a 5 book series that includes The House of Hades, and continues on with the character Percy Jackson, and at the same time throwing new characters into the mix.
My opinion on the book is that it is okay. This book in my opinion is the worst out of the whole series so far, and I believe that this is due to the little action that occurs in this book. The books in this series prior to "The House of Hades" had been more interesting and had more action. The House of Hades doesn't seem to me like its even a book with Percy Jackson in it.

The message I believe that the author Rick Riordan is trying show is to never give up. This is the message that I believe that the author is trying show because even though the characters have many obstacles in their way, they are still able to have the strength to try and reach their goals.
