“Her voice caught on the word friend. Percy was a lot more than that. Even boyfriend really didn’t cover it. They’d been through so much together, at this point Percy was part of her – a sometimes annoying part, sure, but definitely a part she could not live without.”
- Excerpt From: Rick, Riordan. “The House of Hades (Heroes of Olympus Book 4).”
I don't know. For me the highlight of their trip to Tartarus is learning to give chance and to trust that even enemies could be great allies. Also by treating someone as a friend, even if it would be insane to do so, he would also treat you as a friend and will choose to be on your side even if it means betraying traditions. Wow. Since when did Rick Riordan's books make me so philosophical? Maybe it's just too much Annabeth. Not that I'm complaining.
okay, Nico is not part of the 7 but im going to include a separate portion of my review for him.
NICO was angry and miserable like I mentioned.
Nico is freaking fourteen!!! he shouldn't be feeling these kinds of stuff. It will break him.
I wish he would be given a friend who could understand him and give him advice. Then he will Then he'll go somewhere to heal his broken heart while doing some important godly job.
That would be awesome.
So the air was acid. The water was misery. The ground was broken glass. Everything here was designed to hurt and kill.
Be honoured, little demigods, said the god of the pit. Even the Olympians were never worthy of my personal attention. But you will be destroyed by Tartarus himself.
To my wonderful readers:
Sorry about that last cliff-hanger.
Well, no, not really. HAHAHAHA.
But, seriously, I love you guys.
Love is no game! It is no flowery softness! It is hard work—a quest that never ends. It demands everything from you—especially the truth. Only then does it yield rewards.
“Annabeth pressed her lips to Percy’s ear. “I love you.”
She wasn’t sure he could hear her—but if they died, she wanted those to be her last words.”
Tell him, Nico di Angelo, Cupid said. Tell him you are a coward, afraid of yourself and your feelings. Tell him the real reason you ran from Camp Half-Blood, and why you are always alone. Will you hide among the dead, as you always do? Cupid taunted.
