The stakes have never been higher. If Percy Jackson and Annabeth fail in their quest, there’ll be hell on Earth. Literally.
Wandering the deadly realm of Tartarus, every step leads them further into danger. And, if by some miracle they do make it to the Doors of Death, there’s a legion of bloodthirsty monsters waiting for them.
Meanwhile, Hazel and the crew of the Argo II have a choice: to stop a war or save their friends. Whichever road they take one thing is certain – in the Underworld, evil is inescapable.
Tartus is terrifying. I felt claustrophobic and terrified while reading about Annabeth and Percy. It was brilliant! Rick Riordan created a hell which I would not like to visit. The supporting characters were great and all of them felt like they nada purpose and not just fluff.
The quest to seal the gates is great on both sides of the story. The Argo II gets into adventures as always and I liked that we got to know Nico more in this book.
This was one of my favourites in the series.
