(First Chapter, First Paragraph is hosted by Bibliophile By the Sea. Every Tuesday we share the first paragraph or two of a book we’re reading or thinking about reading soon. Care to join us?)
I’ve followed Rick Riordan’s Percy Jackson and the Olympians and The Heroes of Olympus series since the beginning, and am glad that The House of Hades is finally out.
During the third attack, Hazel almost ate a boulder. She was peering into the fog, wondering how it could be so difficult to fly across one stupid mountain range, when the ship’s alarm bells sounded.
Of course it’s been so long since I read the last in the series, so I’ll have to look up some summaries before I dive into this one. I’ve heard some really interesting things, though, so I’m excited to see how it goes.
Would you keep reading?

Sorry, I can’t relate to the “intro”? I’m wondering if I’d need to stard for the beginning. I’m happy you joined us though & hope you like the story.
Yes, it’s definitely a “start from the beginning” situation. If you like Greek and Roman mythology (and YA), you should check it out. The first book in this series is called The Lost Hero, although I’d recommend starting with the original series, Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief.
I actually finished the book earlier today — another cliffhanger. :p
Oh, now I’m curious! Thanks for sharing…and enjoy. And thanks for visiting my blog.
You too! You should give the series a try,
