Let's see. I'm about 99.999999% certain that Percy and Annabeth won't die. Also when I first thought of Tartarus, I thought of their past friends that have died lik Beckendorf, Selina, and Luke giving them clues to help them, but then they aren't in Tartarus, so that won't happen, but maybe.
Then I thought of Kronos. You know, since Percy sent him back there? So maybe he'll make a deal with Percy. Like a trade, kinda like what Leo and Nemesis did. They'll probaby find Annabeth's sword again, and maybe her laptop.
They will meet the others at the Doors of Death. Nico and the others will probaby try contacting them, but won't get it through, or it'll be really hazy. The others will probaby try to get to Greece as fast as they can so they can hurry up and find Percabeth and defeat Gaea.
Well, that's my prediction. I really super duper want someone to write their ver of HOH. I would be estatic! Afterall, that's the best we could do, since we have to wait a whole yeaar for the book to come out... Please, please, please, write someone!!! Oh, and feel free to use some of what I think'll happen, but I would appreciate it if you gave me some credit.
Well that's about it!

well For those that have read the kane cronicals you know how set was the big baddy in the first book and then in the second they were almost like buddies because there was a bigger threat. I see that pattern in alot of books the whole enemies from preveous books arnt that bad anymore so yeeeeeea i think thats a possibility that kronos will help them and probablly joak around with percy about the first war :P i wonder if he still looks like luke.. O.o Gods! what if luke is down there as punishment for what he did! ha i can so imagen luke picking up annabeths dagger, the knife the killed him and then he'd give it back to her and it wound be all symbolic ^.^ also they probably need some form of comunication with the others to time it right, so annabeth would find (or build) a cellphone or something and then percy could crack a joak like "tarturus had cellphone reception!!??" lolz aww i hope percy doesn't lose his sence of humour when he's down there! :(

Hmmm...I don't think Percy and Annabeth will die...
-In the they're going to like encounter a bunch of different monsters that have grudges against them
-For PoVs... I think it will be Jason, Frank, Hazel, and Annabeth. See cause MoA was the Greeks, so HoH will be Romans, and either Annabeth or Percy because we obviously need to know what happens to them.
-The House of Hades actually might be a real place I think... Idk I looked it up online and a bunch of stuff came up that made it seem like it was a place you can actually visit...
-Captivity...I bet Percy and Annabeth will be captured at one point by Gaea and her minions, cause she wants their blood to wake. Maybe that's how she actually wakes.
- Trapped...Either Nico, Hazel, or Percy and Annabeth might end up trapped in the Tartarus. Think about it. Someone has to close the doors from the Tartarus side and shut themselves in. One of these four people will be trapped inside unless Ricky pulls a wierd sceme that allows him to keep them all alive.
-Frazel/Heo?...I don't understand this at all. Leo, is not supposed to like Hazel in ma head. I don't like Riordan for writing a love triangle.
-Insanity...yah, Percabeth might go a little craaaazy
-Oooooh! Gaea's going to have minions capture Percy and Annabeth and then they'll be taken out of the Doors of Death (like Nico) and then they'll "spill their blood" (but not ya know, kill them) in like this really ancient place in Greece and then Percy, Annabeth, and all the oder epic demigods will pull an impossible stunt that none of us would ever be able to comprehend and cliff hanger and ba-bam! End of HoH!
-Yeah idk.

For those who read the Kane Chronicles, remember the houses of the night? Sounds really similar here... Fingers crossed for possible crossover

There already has been a crossover. It has come out already. over a year ago

I feel like if RR killed either Percy or Annabeth; it'd be a huge twist... And possibly another cliffhanger from him. I don't know; I feel like, if he let them BOTH stay alive, then it would be too predictable (but i really hope they both do). RR's all about the twists and the unexpected.
Also; about who would stay behind: I'm hoping it's Jason. He thinks he's the leader, nobody like him; it's a perfect plan! But truthfully, I (sadly) think it will Percy. Remember when that one god (can't remember who it was.... Bacchus?), said Percy's boyage would be harder than the rests? He didn't say Percy and ANNABETH. Besides, his fatal flaw is loyalty; so he'd want his friends to survive :(
over a year ago precious211 said…
Meh I didn't think alot of House of Hades, just the fact that i'll probably have to wait another year..Let me do some thinking right now. Umm I don't think its likely that Kronos will come and help Percy and Annabeth. And honestly, I don't think that either of them will die. You just don't kill characters that you took five books to build off of..Except if your J.K Rowling. I miss you Dumbledore<3
Call me optimistic but I believe that R.R would find a way to make sure that no one has to stay in Tartarus. I think that Percy would still be sane, cause he has Annabeth. Jason will obviously be the leader, no matter how much I oppose the matter. Maybe its just me, but I feel like Annabeth is going to die eventually..
over a year ago Karaoke_Leo said…
AHHHHH! No no no! Ppl stop saying someone's going to die! I mean heck yah it's probable but I'm more attatched to Percy and Annabeth than any other characters so I NEED to believe they live to keep my sanity. But truth be told I think all of the seven will stay alive until the last book. They are needed for the prophecy so Riordan doesn't have a choice but to keep them alive until at least the very end of the last book. So if someone dies it's going to be in the one coming out in two years.
over a year ago dwparker14 said…
So many things to chat about! I agree that Rick wont Kill Percy or Annabeth, primarily because I don't want to believe it. That is what PJO was centered around is those two after all :) I also like the idea that if you are with the one you love you can get through hell/Tartarus! And other reasons as well which have already been mentioned. Maybe Tartarus wont be that bad cause all the monsters are trying to escape and Percy and Annabeth can sneak out with them...(I doubt it but it's a thought) I do think someone/something will take that role of closing the doors on the inside, but who's says it going to be one of the seven in the prophecy? I don't think they will get help from a friend in the underworld even Luke, but I also don't think they will meet the Titans again. Titans are old news, LOL. I have many ideas which include one of the 7, Rheya, or even Briares (100-handed one who guarded Tartarus for the Gods anyway) but also maybe we will get lucky and Octavian will do it!
House of hades I think will not have a POV from Percy or Annabeth to my severe disappointment. I really enjoyed MOA because it was primarily Annabeth's POV and we pretty much all know Percy's POV after PJO. I feel it will be the Romans (Hazel, Frank, and Jason) and Niko. House of Hades is Greek after all, and Niko was charged with leading them by Percy.
Anyway this felt like a lot so please feel free to agree or disagree...I would love to talk more about this since I can't get the story out of my head even 12 days after finishing MOA!!

Hazel is already dead so, I feel like she would be willing to go to Tartarus and close the doors from that side. But did anybody notice how Frank was told that he was going to die with the stick in his hand? So that means he doesnt die because the stick burnt out... because then there would be no more stick. Also I don't think we will get a POV from Percy OR Annabeth, it would make it more mysterious and thrilling. We might get glimpses into what is going on through dreams of Nico or Hazel. Thats what im just thinking though. But I think it would be so awesome (albeit sad) if Percy and Annabeth had to close the doors from the inside. Then you have a Kingdom Hearts 1 type of ending and it would be really beautiful and sad.

Rick said we would get either Percy or Annabeth povs over a year ago
over a year ago megon4ever said…
I kind of thought that the main character would be Nico. House of HADES. At the end, they will probably meet up with Percy and Annabeth. For the POV's, I don't think Percy and Annabeth would be included due to the fact that they're in Tartarus. Like spacebarthingy said, we may get glimpses of them from Nico or Hazel. Hera seems like a very important character that hasn't shown up a lot, so she will play a big role. They kept hinting that Jason was making promises. That is suppose to throw us off. Obviously he won't die, but someone will or may seem like it.
over a year ago seaistruth said…
Personally I don't think any of the 7 demigods will die, the books wouldn't be as good
1) Leo and Annabeth seem to have something happening
2) Jasen angers a new Titan and is being held there which will be the cliffhanger
3) Leo gets a Spanish girlfriend who is daughter of Athena / she becomes Annabeths best friend
4) Percabeth finds that Titan whose memory was wiped out in the demigod files and he makes some bargain with them letting them out of Tartarus
5) There end up being 7 books
over a year ago WatchYourBack said…
@seaistruth you mean Bob
okay I think that the pov's will be Jason, Hazel, Frank for sure than it will either be
nico- because quote at the end "the other side nico! we'll see you there. understand?" nico's eyes widened "but-" "LEAD THEM THERE! PROMISE ME" "I-I WILL."
or annabeth or percy cuz there down there

We're getting a POV from Annabeth or Percy over a year ago
over a year ago Tyler61799 said…
So a oath to keep right? So I think there's two promises1)Gaia raising 2)annabeth and Percy being together. I think Gaia will capture annabeth and have Percy sacrifice himself but get the blood anyways OR after that and annabeth decides to stay in Tartarus but Percy will go with franks help. Remember the talk with Mars on Son of Neptune. And storm or fire the world must fall Peru and/or Jason will sacrifice themselves but Leo will save the day because he's the fire. Will post more theories soon

i think that no one will die and there will be some traitors like in the PJO series. like drew and OCTAVIAN
PerlicoShipper commented…
I agree with you over a year ago
over a year ago craxnor said…
Ok this is how I think some of the story is going to go.

POV characters
Percy (He is the main character of the series and he is the only character in all actuality that i care about we just have to know what happens in tartaras)
Frank- because he is next
hazel- also because she is next
Nico- mainly because c'mon who doesn't want to know what goes on in that kids head

Ok the story is basically going to be the chosen minus the obvious going to Greece as fast as they can. they will be getting messages in and out for when the Romans (who are in fact the most idiotic and cowardly group of demigods I have ever scene and it is no wonder they lost the civil war I mean jeez Jason came back and Percy saved their camp and it took three seconds for them to act like animals) (sorry little rant). anyway while that is happening Percy and Annabeth are going to basiccally be going through tartarus and probably meet up with Nyx (who might be good because tartarus cheated on her with Gaia and she might help them to spite her) the primordial goddess of night. percy might also be wondering about Kronos since of the incident with the ghost who turned his and Jasons eyes gold. The demigods will all meet their fare share of trouble from monsters and immortals alike and it is mainly another race against time to in the end stop the greeks from completely destroying the romans ( ill explain later). Now this final thing is just me but I remember Nico saying the door has to be closed from both sides so, I think that if or when they reach the door Percy will push Annabeth out of the door to Tartarus and percy will close it from the inside saving her giving him the extremely super mega maybe he will die again do not get angry maybe he will die and finaly get his piece and go to elysium (should go to the isle of the blest in my opinion)

the greeks will beat the romans for three reasons
1. they know they are coming and Argus can see in every direction so they can't launch a surprise attack
2. The greeks are all demigods not quarter or a 16th demigod so they are several times more powerful
3. the greeks have a guardian dragon, several pegasus, and Tyson who is the LEADING GENERAL of the cyclops army which outmatches the romans in numbers heavily
4. You know I'm going to add a fourth they are fighting on the greeks turf
5. screw it a fifth the greeks have Chiron the trainer of heroes to aid them and Lupa will maybe attempt to stop them to

Also spoiler alert if nobody knows Octavion betrays everyone and is probably working or is corrupted by Gaia (come on who doesn't want this guy to get stabbed or blown up)

that's all I have to say about the book

Does anyone realise that when any of those people will kill a monster, they will be adding to the burden of percbeth. And what will happen when they try killing the residents of Tartarus? I am really confused.

Leo, with his awesome power over locks, that no one seems to notice, will lock the doors, but it will take so much energy out of him he will fall into a coma/die (NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO­OOO­OOO­OOO­OOO­OOO­OOO­OOO­OOO­OOO­OOO­OOO­OOO­OOO­OOO­OOO­OOO­OOO­OOO­OOO­OOO­OOO­OOO­OOO­OOO­OOO­OOO­OOO­OOO­OOO­OOO­OOO­OOO­OOO­OOO­OOO­OOO­OOO­OOO­OOO­OOO­OOO­OOO­OOO­OOO­OOO­OOO­OOO­OOO­OOO­OOO­OOO­OOO­OOO­OOO­OOO­OOO­O insert dying fangirl heart here)

ok so i think percy is going to sacrifice himself to close the doors of death... remember chiron said percys time would come...
PerlicoShipper commented…
Nope, no nope. He's one of the main characters, and we have one more book left. I think, it will be Coach Hedge, I mean he was beating himself up about Percy and Annabeth falling into Tartarus, I think he will sacrifice himself over a year ago
over a year ago goldenpoptart said…
First off The POV's will be

* Percy or Annabeth. I'm swinging with anabeth bc 1) With how romantic that last scene of Percabeth was with Percy sacrificing himself to be with her would mean we dont hear her thoughts abt that situation, and 2) It would give Annabeth a second POV. 3) She is a good story teller (that is different from how good of a character she is if you get what i mean.

* Jason. I think we need to see him develop into the second strongest male character on the team and watch him develop into a great and strong leader. I think he will not lead the team to HOH (Nico's Job) but he will still be the leader while going there.

* Leo/Frank. Maybe Leo for this one considering he is sort of next in line for leadership. He is the captain of the ship also so he is a leader in his own right. He took responsibility for the separation and even though he knows it was not his fault he would like to help the team go get them back.

* Hazel. Hazel's role is going to see a huge increase in this book especially if Nico dies. She is the daughter of Pluto and that holds weight in this particular mission there could be a surprise regarding her but i doubt she dies.

In the HOH i predict that Annabeth will live but maybe Percy stays after beating a lot of monsters and legendary evil characters mostly to gain rep and make Percy look a lot stronger. then i see him staying and somehow becoming a god and that could be the cliffhanger for the end or something, either way or anyway he turns into a god i would want it to be so 1) that would make it so where the 7 dont need any god's help and then Nico could actually be one of 7 and Percy was never one. So now they can kill any Giant and everyone and Gaea can raise and eventually they defeat her and throughout this process Nico's Status in the underworld grows any he get's more privaleges and gifts. Also Jason rises to be the strongest demigod there is bc Percy is technically a god. and that would stretch out the last 2 books. Idk abt any other predictions but it is confirmed Calypso is in the book. I also think Percy should defeat Hercules one one god v god or w/e even if percy wasnt a god idk, i just think he needs to beat him that would make him legend status.
PerlicoShipper commented…
Dude, stop being an idiot. Percy is not becoming a god. Go reread Percy Jackson and the Olympians! PERCY. DOES. WANT. TO. BE. A. GOD. He would rather stay with Annabeth than be a god. The Seven demigods have already been found out. Nico is NOT part of the Seven, but he is an important character in the books. THAT HAS ALREADY BEEN SAID THAT THE SEVEN NEED NICO TO HELP THEM. Why do you keep saying Nico will rise to be the leader, but then saying he could die. No. Nico is the outsider, always has been, same with Leo. I think Leo will have influence in leading the group while Percy is in Tartarus, but in the end, Jason and Percy are the leaders. Nico is Nico, he has never really been a member of the group, but he has always been a major help to them. Sorry if you find my opinions rude, but I just thought I should share my theories, maybe we can help each other out and combine theories! Anyway, sorry if I seem rude. over a year ago
over a year ago PerlicoShipper said…
I have like a million theories as to what will happen.
1.We know somebody has to close the Doors from the inside. Everybody assumes it will be one of the Seven, but who else is there? Coach Hedge. I think he's going to be the one who closes the Doors(whenever they get closed). I mean, he was beating himself up over Annabeth and Percy falling into Tartarus, so I don't think he'll let one of the Seven, or Nico, close the Doors.
2.So, I've seen a ton of people saying "Oh no! Now Percy and Annabeth are down there with Kronos! They'll be killed for sure!". No, hell no. There is no way Rick will be able to kill one of them and live, plus they're two of the main characters. IF rick plans to kill them off, he can't do it till the last book. Plus, I think Kronos is smarter than that. I think he has gained some respect for Percy, seeing as he played a major role in defeating him, and he wouldn't dare hurt Annabeth. I think Kronos might actually help them out. Help them find the Doors, then try to make his escape through them and the rest of the Seven, plus Nico and Hedge, are on the other end and they stop him.
3.We are going to see our buddies at Camp. We might not see a lot of them, but think about it, we're going to hear something about them. Rick has said that Grover will make an appearance, my theory is he will come with news about Camp. Maybe even rally some help from Dryads and Nymphs to help Percy and company close the Doors.
4.RICK. WILL. KILL. OUR. FEELS. One way or another, something is gonna happen to one of the Seven that is gonna make us go sob in a corner and want to die. I don't think it'll be Percy, Annabeth, or Nico. I mean, they've gone through enough for now. But I sense something happening to Leo and/or Hazel that will hurt one(or more) of the rest of the Seven.
5.This one doesn't have to do so much with HoH as it does SoS. It has to do with both. PERCY. WILL. NOT. DIE. IN. HOUSE. OF. HADES. Rest assured, he won't die. If you haven't read Son of Sobek yet, read it. In it Percy meets Carter and they fight this giant alligator(or was it a crocodile), the Son of Sobek. Afterwards, neither one of them can figure out while this monster all of the sudden showed up. Both Carter and Percy are confused about one and another. Anyways, when you read it, you KNOW, there will be a combine series in which the main characters are Percy and Carter, so rest assured. He's not Going to die, yet.
I think I've said enough to get you guys thinkin up your own therioes, so ttfn, ta ta for now!
