This week I'm waiting on...

Check out the description from Barnes & Noble:
* This whole description is pretty much a spoiler if you haven't read the other books.
"At the conclusion of The Mark of Athena, Annabeth and Percy tumble into a pit leading straight to the Underworld. The other five demigods have to put aside their grief and follow Percy's instructions to find the mortal side of the Doors of Death. If they can fight their way through the Gaea's forces, and Percy and Annabeth can survive the House of Hades, then the Seven will be able to seal the Doors both sides and prevent the giants from raising Gaea. But, Leo wonders, if the Doors are sealed, how will Percy and Annabeth be able to escape?
They have no choice. If the demigods don't succeed, Gaea's armies will never die. They have no time. In about a month, the Romans will march on Camp Half-Blood. The stakes are higher than ever in this adventure that dives into the depths of Tartarus."
I'm finally just about caught up with the Heroes of Olympus series, I'm on CD 11 out of 12 from the 3rd book. I've been listening to all of them on audio which has been a great experience and really makes my drive to work fly by. I highly recommend you check out the audio it really brings the characters to life marvelously. With how I know the last book ends this book will either be super awesome or terribly scarring. I have a bad feeling that not everybody will make it out of this quest alive (I mean just take a gander at the cover of the book.)
