A Nice Short Novel addition to the Olympians series Aug. 2 2012
By Pop Bop - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a novella length book that was created in Great Britain for World Book Day, which was organized by UNESCO. Every year a few popular children's authors are asked to write a special short edition from their most popular series to contribute to the affair. The books are then made available to kid readers in exchange for a Book Token. Book Tokens are sent to schools to be distributed, and kids can use their Token to get any one of approximately eight available titles.

Anyway, this was Rick Riordan's contribution, which explains why you won't find it in U.S. bookstores or generally available as part of the Percy Jackson series.

This is basically a stand-alone story. The usual gang has to go to Hades to accomplish a task that is part of, but not essential to, the larger Olympians story arc.

This is a great book to get if you have finished the Olympians series and are hungry for just a bit more. All of the characters are as you remember them, and the novella has the same feel as the novel length books. It is certainly a worthwhile addition to the series, and a satisfying acquisition for the completist in you.

Both my kids love Percy Jackson and they have read all the books from this series. This title is an additional extension to the series and both kids just love reading it.

Fun Read Dec 6 2012
By rcook612 - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Was a great read for the afternoon. Quick adventure the Percy has with some friends and meet some great charcters. Still full of great teenage attitude and sarcaism as the novels. Rick is a wonderful writer.

Nice for a little fill- in about Percy and Annabeth April 13 2013
By Kelly Bonar - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Thisa isn't meant to be a great novel. The short story is entertaining, gives us a glimpse of Percy and Annabeth when things are supposed to be going well. Would be nice to develop the godess Persephone's personality/role rather than simply making her another irritating godess like Hera.

amazing Feb. 21 2013
By justbeccaz - Published on
Format: Paperback
The Sword of Hades is a wonderful short story set in Rick Riordan's world of Greek heroes. If I remember correctly, it's told in the classic Percy Jackson style and is set chronologically between Battle of the Labyrinth and The Last Olympian (there's even a few references in TLO). Until now, i didn't even know that it had been released by itself in an acutal book format: i read it as part of the collection "The Demigod Files," which is also completely amazing.
