About this item


About the Book

Nico, the son of Hades, and his boyfriend Will, the son of Apollo, travel to Tartarus, the deepest, darkest part of the Underworld as they attempt to rescue an old friend.

Book Synopsis

Demigods Nico di Angelo and Will Solace must endure the terrors of Tartarus to rescue an old friend in this thrilling adventure co-written by New York Times #1 best-selling author Rick Riordan and award-winning author Mark Oshiro.

Percy Jackson fans, rejoice! Nico and Will have a book of their own!

As the son of Hades, Nico di Angelo has been through so much, from the premature deaths of his mother and sister, to being outed against his will, to losing his friend Jason during the trials of Apollo. But there is a ray of sunshine in his life--literally: his boyfriend, Will Solace, the son of Apollo. Together the two demigods can overcome any obstacle or foe. At least, that's been the case so far...

Now Nico is being plagued by a voice calling out to him from Tartarus, the lowest part of the Underworld. He thinks he knows who it is: a reformed Titan named Bob whom Percy and Annabeth had to leave behind when they escaped Hades's realm. Nico's dreams and Rachel Dare's latest prophecy leave little doubt in Nico's mind that Bob is in some kind of trouble. Nico has to go on this quest, whether Mr. D and Chiron like it or not. And of course Will insists on coming with. But can a being made of light survive in the darkest part of the world? and what does the prophecy mean that Nico will have to "leave something of equal value behind?"

Nico will have to face demons both internal and external as his relationship with Will is tested to the core in this standalone adventure featuring two of the most popular characters in the Percy Jackson saga.

Inappropriate material for the 8-13 year old section. This book is placed at eye level for grade school children and addresses more adult themes. Shame on target.

This book was phenomenal. I’ve always been a huge Percy Jackson fan (I read the books my freshman year of high school, which was 2009-2010), and I’ve loved every series/spin-off since then. Admittedly, I *just* read the last two books in the Trials of Apollo series, but that was because I thought it was going to be a trilogy and an event happened in the third book that I did not appreciate so much, but once I got over that and read the last two, I was fully back on board the love train. Anything in the Greek/Roman demigod series is something I will read and love and reread over and over. The Sun and the Star is completely focused on Nico de Angelo, son of Hades, and his boyfriend Will Solace, son of Apollo. Nico has been one of my favorite non-main characters since his first appearance in The Titan’s Curse, and he’s just gotten better and better throughout the books. Will also popped up in the last book of the original series, but never really as someone important important, more as just one of Apollo’s gazillion kids. He got more important in the Heroes of Olympus books, and then super important (with Nico) in the Trials of Apollo books. Will and Nico are both young demigods (fifteen and sixteen, I think), and they go through tons of challenges together. Nico has faced so much horrendous death in his life, not even counting the seventy years he lost in the lotus casino. Will has also lost people, but nowhere near the extent as Nico. I loved getting to watch Nico and Will together (and separately) throughout the course of this book, and I liked that it was told half in flashbacks and half in “real” time. It brought up things I hadn’t ever thought about (like how it was straight up illegal to be gay in Italy in the 1930s/1940s when Nico was a kid and lived there), and also definitely put Hades (God and place) in a much better light, which as a huge Hades/Persephone fan, I appreciated. I also super enjoyed that there was no cliffhanger ending to this book. It definitely wasn’t a stand alone (you DEFINITELY need to read all three series first), but it didn’t leave you waiting for the next book. I’m not sure if this was meant to be a one-off or if Nico and Will may be getting more books, but I’m happy with this either way. Highly recommend this book for anyone who loves the Percy Jackson books, Greek mythology, adventures, or basically enjoying a book at all. 10/10.
