Percy Jackson and the Sword of Hades (Percy Jackson and the Olympians #4.5)
The Sword of Hades was a short read, as it is intended to be a short story. It's not nearly as thrilling as the others in the first and second series. The writing seemed very basic and kind of rushed/not edited.
I still liked it, though. I love everything that's associated with Percy. In this novelette we were able to have a glimpse of our hero's...more
The story line is an interesting one, that takes place in the Underworld. Persephone summons Percy, Thalia and Nico to help find Hades's sword that is built with a Death's key in the hilt (hope I got the term right :P) This key can lock and unlock death (I know! Right!) and also, theoretica...more

I liked this little adventure Percy, Thalia and Nico go on in the Underworld. It was short and sweet and I enjoyed it a lot. Different Gods make an appearance in this short story and I liked that Hades has finally an official role because there was talking about him in the previous books, but he didn't really show up to say hi.
Also, the writing. I love how sarcastic and witty Percy's thoughts are and although he doesn't know every God and what their role is, he is smart and fu...more
