Publisher's Summary

At the conclusion of The Mark of Athena, Annabeth and Percy tumble into a pit leading straight to the Underworld. The other five demigods have to put aside their grief and follow Percy's instructions to find the mortal side of the Doors of Death. If they can fight their way through the Gaea's forces, and Percy and Annabeth can survive the House of Hades, then the Seven will be able to seal the Doors from both sides and prevent the giants from raising Gaea. But, Leo wonders, if the Doors are sealed, how will Percy and Annabeth be able to escape?
They have no choice. If the demigods don't succeed, Gaea's armies will never die. They have no time. In about a month, the Romans will march on Camp Half-Blood. The stakes are higher than ever in this adventure that dives into the depths of Tartarus.

I really HATE it when narrators are switched

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

This narrator was fine for the Luke story, but be just hasn't been able to pull off the longer, and varied voices of this book. I would re buy the book for Swanson reading it.

I'd rather have waited a couple of weeks to have maintained the narration.

What didn’t you like about Nick Chamian’s performance?

He doesn't have the amount of voices needed. His female voice sounds like a man trying to speak with a girls voice. It's just bad. I liked his reading of the Demi god diaries, so I don't think he's a bad reader, he's just not a good fit for this book

Any additional comments?

Please stop switching readers in a series that maintains the same narration. It's very distracting from my enjoyment.

Great story, but.....

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

The book, yes, the audiobook, no.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Couldn't finish the audiobook.

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Nick Chamian?

Joshua Swanson or Jesse Bernstein

Do you think The House of Hades needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

Any additional comments?

I couldn't listen to anymore than 5 mins of this audiobook. The narrator is terrible. Very dry, unenthusiastic and sounds like he's reading from a book. All of the other audiobooks on the series have drawn me in and held me captive. I've sat in my car waiting to hear what happens. I usually go back and forth for. The audio and the book, but I'll be sticking with the book only this time.
