Rick Riordan’s ‘House of Hades’ Covers & Synopsis Revealed

At Book Expo America this morning, Rick Riordan unveiled the cover for House of Hades, fourth book in the Heroes of Olympus series. The U.K. cover was revealed a few hours later. You can check them both out below.

The U.S. House of Hades cover features Percy Jackson and Annabeth Chase in a fiery hellish scene, and at Riordan’s Book Expo America panel this morning he said that this book is the one Percabeth fans have been waiting for. As you can see from the cover, the scene we’re looking at features a very emotional moment as Percy and Annabeth approach the door…

The official House of Hades synopsis:

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 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.

House of Hades will hit book store shelves on October 8 this year.
