Hi everyone. the number of pages for house of hades is 608. i saw it in  can someone edit this page? it seems that i dont have the required permission. thanks Exalibur (talkcontribs) 10:33, May 29, 2013 (UTC)

Yes, I can. SayuriDarling ~ “But a mermaid has no tears, and therefore she suffers so much more.” 13:03, May 29, 2013 (UTC)
Hasn't Amazon said it was 608 pages for awhile. If I remember correctly, Rick Riordan even posted on his blog that any website giving a page count was most likely just estimating. Darkcloud1111 Umbreon1111Fastest Hero Alive 18:46, May 29, 2013 (UTC)
^^I remember seeing that. I couldn't find the link, but I remember that he did say websites were probably estimating. Albus Chase ~So this is Narnia... 18:56, May 29, 2013 (UTC)
Hey that means 608 pages of fun filled adventure thanks guys.~ Bardaleif

Cover Picture

Does somebody want to change the brown pre-cover picture to the nicer-looking red pre-cover picture on Rick Riordan's blog? It has already been uploaded to the wiki, all it needs is adding. OwlKind17~ κουκουβάγια Είδος XVII 22:20, May 29, 2013 (UTC)

Considering the real cover comes out in about 2 days, there really isn't a point. Darkcloud1111 Umbreon1111Fastest Hero Alive 22:38, May 29, 2013 (UTC)


When monsters die, they go to Tartarus, right? Isn't it an option that they won't die in Tartarus, because they return everytime to Tartarus? HermesTheBestForever (talkcontribs) 06:51, June 24, 2013 (UTC)

They can escape from Tartarus. SayuriDarling ~ “But a mermaid has no tears, and therefore she suffers so much more.” 07:48, June 24, 2013 (UTC)

Main Characters

Shouldn't we add the rest of the seven to the main character section? Since they are all narrating, I figure they all fit into that category. Albus Chase 20:49, October 3, 2013 (UTC)

It could still not be "official". The sample is always subject to change etc. SayuriDarling ~ “And like the sea, I'm constantly changing from calm to hell.” 20:59, October 3, 2013 (UTC)
He also said it in that video, though. Albus Chase 21:02, October 3, 2013 (UTC)
No, he didn't. SayuriDarling ~ “And like the sea, I'm constantly changing from calm to hell.” 21:06, October 3, 2013 (UTC)
He said during the interview that unlike the other books,"...they're all together, they all have their own points-of-view..." This helps confirm that the preview from Flipkart is accurate, as it lists all the chapters and narrators. Darkcloud1111 Umbreon1111Fastest Hero Alive 21:14, October 3, 2013 (UTC)
I have literally never seen an interview where he says that. SayuriDarling ~ “And like the sea, I'm constantly changing from calm to hell.” 21:17, October 3, 2013 (UTC)

This one.

Albus Chase 21:21, October 3, 2013 (UTC)
Okay. Go add the stupid characters onto it. SayuriDarling ~ “And like the sea, I'm constantly changing from calm to hell.” 21:26, October 3, 2013 (UTC)

Chapter Breakdown

17-20 Frank
21-24 Annabeth
25-28 Hazel
29-32 Percy

I haven't read the book yet, although I already have my copy but from what I can tell, some chapters are really short while others are long. I think I saw a two-page chapter.

Next Book

The Next Book after HoH

The next book is called "The Blood of Olympus". How did I know? And im sure a lot of people have already posted it online. I got the book already since it is October 8 here in my country sΓΣamyGoreng 06:49, October 8, 2013 (UTC)

I'll create the page. SayuriDarling ~ “And like the sea, I'm constantly changing from calm to hell.” 06:16, October 8, 2013 (UTC)

Chapter Pattern

Could we add like there is still a pattern? The narrations are changed from Tartarus to Earth. Annabeth's and Percy's narrations are alternating Taposa|My talk :D 17:49, October 11, 2013 (UTC)

Plot - WikiDumped

Okay so a user completely WikiDumped the plot and I just now caught it. I thought we had just finished the whole plot instead. Anyway, Wikipedia uses a different tense then we do and we need to go back and fix it. For now the tenses are off... I'll fix it later and if someone wants to help it would be nice. SayuriDarling ~ “And like the sea, I'm constantly changing from calm to hell.” 02:00, October 21, 2013 (UTC)

Mentions or indirect mentions

Do they really matter? I think it's just annoying because they really don't appear. Does anyone else find it helpful or something...? SayuriDarling ~ “But a mermaid has no tears, and therefore she suffers so much more.” 21:10, October 24, 2013 (UTC)

I have to say it is kinda annoying and useless. Like the fact that they were mentioned doesn't need to there, as they weren't actually in it. Albus Chase 21:18, October 24, 2013 (UTC)

More trivia

Sorry if this seems a bit irrelevant, but being a huge fan of trivia sections (all my contributions have been to such sections) I just couldn't let it slide.

I think it's worth adding to the page that, because Frank is canadian, Rick uses the metric system in his POV chapters or whenever Frank is speaking.Doritus (talkcontribs) 08:19, January 1, 2014 (UTC)

Mistake in the Book

Does anyone remember what Leo said near the ending of House of Hades? Something about the million peso question? Is that just a mistake in my book, or is it really included in every House of Hades version?

--Allied Soldier (talkcontribs) 06:57, April 3, 2014 (UTC)Allied_Soldier

It is included in every book, but I don't see how it is a mistake. Leo speaks Spanish after all so it wouldn't be out of character for him to use say pesos instead of dollars. Darkcloud1111 Umbreon1111Fastest Hero Alive 09:53, April 3, 2014 (UTC)

Remember in The Lost Her, how Piper`s Dad`s old assistant`s name was Jane? Well, In The House of Hades, Piper called her Jessica.DemigodSavior (talkcontribs) 16:54, June 9, 2014 (UTC)

We are aware of that. It is listed on the mistakes page, as well as Jane's article page. Darkcloud1111 Umbreon1111Fastest Hero Alive 04:06, June 10, 2014 (UTC)

remove template

can someone with permission remove the template saying that this book is unreleased? one of many fiction experts, Rider ringer 47 (talkcontribs) 00:40, July 17, 2014 (UTC)

It's not a template saying the book is unreleased. It's basically saying that someone isn't finished with the article. I can reword the writing, but I took it off. SayuriDarling | "One day I will find the right words, and they will be simple." 01:35, July 17, 2014 (UTC)
