The House of Hades is about 7 heroes that are on a quest to stop Gaea the earth mother from rising, ending the world. The heroes that consist of the book are: Annabeth (daughter of Athena), Percy Jackson (son of Poseidon), Jason Grace (son of Jupiter), Leo Valdez (son of Hephaestus), Piper McLean (daughter of Aphrodite), Frank Zhang (son of Mars), Hazel Levesque (daughter of Pluto). Before the book started the last book The Mark of Athena talk about Percy and Annabeth falling towards the pit called Tartarus, the enemies are near the Doors of Death that have been stolen from Thantos who is Death and was trapped in the Mark of Athena and broken out of the prison by Percy, Frank, and Hazel. They seven have to try and stop Gaea and the Roman demigods from attacking Camp Half-Blood and they have to prove that by bringing back a statue that was stolen by Greeks and the Romans have been trying to find it for centuries and it was only given to children of Athena and no one else. Annabeth was the first one of the children of Athena to retrieve it from Arachne who had it for the entire time hiding it from the Greek and Roman demigods.

The demigods had to go to Ancient Greece but to demigods that was the forbidden zone since there are much more powerful and evil monsters that lurk there.  The seven had to find their way to the Doors of Death and they had to deal with monsters and gods and goddesses. The seven demigods on their quest had to watch out for Roman legionaries so that they don’t get taken away from the Athena Parthenos which is the statue that Annabeth had gotten back from Arachne. Frank had to deal with a lot of stuff like having to deal with his dad fighting with the greek version of himself in franks head and when he had to kill a crowd of cows that are poisonous he got the power from his dad and was able to transform into creatures and kill them all and was able to get a python that was made to get a gods chariot to work again and in return he was able to grow a couple inches and lost some weight. Percy and Annabeth had to deal with a lot of stuff in Tartarus and had to drink fire water to stay alive since tartarus was bad to demigods and good to monsters that were killed in the mortal world and they found a old friend that percy had to fight in a war and ended up being a friend to percy.
