Maria (mariasaleem) | 685 comments Halfway through my current book. Will start this one as soon as I'm done with the current one!


Angela Jr. | 995 comments I started a few days ago already, but am going slow. I'm only around page 60


Aakash (aakashthedreamer) | 444 comments Hello


Aakash (aakashthedreamer) | 444 comments I am also going to start house of hades as soon as my exam gets over


Maria (mariasaleem) | 685 comments You're very welcome to join us, Akash! The more, the merrier :)


Aakash (aakashthedreamer) | 444 comments Thnxs for your warm welcome.


Aakash (aakashthedreamer) | 444 comments I started the book and i m on ch 12.


Angela Jr. | 995 comments I just finished chapter 25. I've been reading only a few pages at a time inbetween some other reads, which is working out well so far. The previous books in the series couldn't really keep my attention and I grew bored pretty quickly, but this method is keeping my interest in the story rather high!


Maria (mariasaleem) | 685 comments Yes. This one has some good action going on. I am through chapter 20. Surprisingly enjoyed Frank's perspective! (He annoyed me a bit in Son of Neptune) I sympathize with him more now. He's just a big boy with a soft heart. I understand why he alone had to do this (view spoiler)


Maria (mariasaleem) | 685 comments This book has been keepinh my attention better than Mark of Athena, which I liked less than the first two books


Maria (mariasaleem) | 685 comments Also, I'm sorry for Frank being (view spoiler)

Maria (mariasaleem) | 685 comments Oh. Well I've read the Percy Jackson series so this felt more mature to me...but I get what you mean. The tone of the book gives a young-ish vibe and I understand how Leo's humour might not appeal to everybody


Aakash (aakashthedreamer) | 444 comments Hello friends. Acoording to you all hades was boring. Yeah it is right but after completing 50 % of book it becomes more compelling.


Aakash (aakashthedreamer) | 444 comments And by the way I completed House of Hades and I am going to start blood of olympus.


Aakash (aakashthedreamer) | 444 comments [I want to know how leo will free calypso from the prison Island as he had promised on river stynx.]
It will be very fun for me reading blood of olympus

I've read percy jackson too and enjoyed it a lot :) in heroes of olympus i do enjoy most of the perspectives, i just don't like piper and leo all that much for some reason 🤔

Oh, no, I loved House of Hades. Mark of Athena had been a bit boring for me. I finished this yesterday. So excited to share my thoughts! What en epic ending!


Maria (mariasaleem) | 685 comments There is a lot to share. I'll gather my thoughts and share them soon!


Angela Jr. | 995 comments I'll probably still take another week to finish, since I'm taking it slow :)

Aakash (aakashthedreamer) | 444 comments Anyone would like to start kane chronicles after this series


Maria (mariasaleem) | 685 comments I would have loved to start Kane Chronicles, the excerpt I had read was interesting enough, b1ut maybe not right now. Have some other book series I really need to catch up to first.

Ending. (view spoiler)


Aakash (aakashthedreamer) | 444 comments Maria did you started blood of olympus ?


Maria (mariasaleem) | 685 comments Not yet. Don't have it right now, unfortunately :/

Aakash (aakashthedreamer) | 444 comments It is irony that hades remain loyal to the pact😂


Aakash (aakashthedreamer) | 444 comments Plz inform me whenever you start blood of olympus, I would love to read it again

Sure, I'd love that!

Yeah. Hades is cool like that 😅


Aakash (aakashthedreamer) | 444 comments I think the line i told about hades was same told by artemis in titan's curse.


Aakash (aakashthedreamer) | 444 comments I bet you would like Hades more after reading blood of olympus. In that Hades do something good.


Maria (mariasaleem) | 685 comments Ooh. Cool
