2013 book 267

Rick Riordan's The House of Hades
This series is fun to read, and I appreciate the great diversity of the characters, but there are just TOO MANY of them. Too many backstories, too many plot points to give everyone a chance to shine. And every time one or the other goes up against a big baddie, you know they're gonna be just fine and will get out of danger by being clever, so there's not much narrative tension really. Which is kind of a problem, b/c two of the characters are down in the pits of Hell! It should be tense! I am excited about prospective new love interests, though, b/c that's how I roll, apparently. B.
