The House of Hades, Rick Riordan
I am starting to like the split narrative thing a lot-getting everyone's perspective. This was a great read. Things I liked:
You don't have to give in to you were, you can choose a new course of life.
Friends are usually what gets you through hard times.
A little understanding goes a long way.
Pride is a fatal flaw for most of Riordan's immortals. Exploit this, and you can win.
Miracles can happen.
Something that I'm interested to see play out is the reveal of a God who admitted to falling in love with a man. And even further, the reveal of a character to have same-gender attraction. I'm anxious to see how it plays out. Personally, in my belief system, there is nothing inherently wrong with a person if they feel that way, but in my belief system, acting on those feelings is considered immoral. Book 5 comes out this fall, so we'll see how things play out!
