Such a nice reason for choosing a character. Not everyone can think of such a one. This is what makes you special.


message 40: by HyeFireFlame (new)

HyeFireFlame I really like Nico! He is not my favorite but he's third place. I love Spider-Man and I laughed so hard when he said "with great responsibility means a great nap" or at least that's what I think he said.


message 41: by atzmatter (new)

atzmatter Uncle Rick, you're awesome. You've inspired me into writing this book that I already four chapters of and I couldn't thank you enough for your talent. Your books helped me get fully out of writer's block after almost five years. :)

message 44: by WolfSpirit1126 (new)

WolfSpirit1126 He put nico and will solace together


message 45: by Liam (new)

Liam I'm not very pro-gay rights, and I oftentimes dislike gay rights, but as I'm reading The House of Hades (first time!!! On page 315 right now!) I'm liking the idea. I see Nico as gay. He seems.... right. I never thought about him being romantically involved with Annabeth, or Thalia, or any female character, but with him being gay, it does seem to fit him :) good decision, Mr. Riordan!


message 46: by Virdania (new)

Virdania Lestari for the next book, could you get more part about solangelo? I really love the two of them, so cute ><


message 47: by Liam (new)
