that this book was not only quite hard but also of a genre that I was not particularly interested in Personally I really do not like the horror genre, particularly when the genre involves haunted

, House of Hades was firmly in the horror category, starting with your character showing up at a spooky old house and becoming trapped within its walls to experience the terrors within In other words, right up my warped little alley.Second, it was the most difficult one Most of the FF books I could figure out pretty quickly, but something about House of Hades stumped me again and again, and I must
