Vitabu Club jiunge Percy Jackson & The Olympians New Article The Place of the Dead's Final Resting Place Percy is given a map that shows the location of three green pearls belonging to Hades' wife, Persephone, which would let them to leave the Underworld. He finds one of these pearls in Volcanoes National Park on Hawaii.
Percy uses the pearl to enter the Underworld and look for Annabeth. When he finds her, they go together to rescue Grover from the Furies. Then they all head to Tartarus to save Charlie from the Beast. After that, they arrive at Camp Half-Blood where everyone is waiting for them. Once there, Percy decides to visit the River Styx in order to find out how to open a passage through to the Underworld. While looking for an idea, he meets the ghost of his father, John Michael Circeo, who tells him that only someone with true courage can do so. With this new knowledge, Percy goes back home to ask his mother, Ceres, if she knows how to do it. She says no, but that it requires both strength and wisdom. Then Percy visits his grandfather, Jupiter, who tells him that he must make a sacrifice to satisfy the gods. Knowing that he will never have another chance like this one, Percy offers himself as a sacrifice and opens a passage through to the Underworld.
After this adventure, Percy joins his friends for dinner.
Percy transports the pearls to the Underworld. Percy desperately wanted to help his mother, but he only had three pearls. When Percy, Annabeth, and Grover crush the pearls at their feet, Hades tries to murder them. Because, as the Nereid said, "what belongs to the sea returns to the sea," the pearls bring them to the center of Santa Monica Bay. There they are confronted by the Sirens, who try to steal away their lives with their beautiful songs. But when the girls don't get what they want, they turn on them and kill them. Disgusted, Percy throws the bodies into the ocean where they will be eaten by the sharks.
Now that the threat is gone, Percy can go home. But first, he wants to find out if Annabeth is okay. So he travels to the Elysian Fields, where the good souls live. They tell him that she has been sent back home to Rome. Sad but determined, Percy goes back home.
Home sweet home!
Note: In the movie version, Percy doesn't go to the Elysian Fields to search for Annabeth. He just stays home because Jason comes back for him.
Percy snatches the pearls to flee Hades, but discovers he only has three and will be unable to save himself, his companions, or his mother. He abandons the prospect of a joyous reunion with his mother and instead uses the pearls to flee with Annabeth and Grover in order to return the master bolt to Olympus. When they arrive, however, they find only Jason, who was not at Camp Half-Blood. Percy assumes he's been captured by the gods, but when no word arrives from them, he begins to believe that something must have happened to their other two friends.
After some time, Percy meets a trio of maidens called the Fury. The Furies tell him that if he wants to see his friends again, he must bring back their bones. Percy agrees, and the ladies show him where they saw their fallen comrades: in a giant pit surrounded by carnivorous plants. Desperate, Percy dives into the trap and finds all three bodies. After some deliberation, he decides to take this opportunity to escape from the underworld. As he reaches the edge of the pit, however, he is confronted by Charon, who demands a fare across the Styx. Only those who have committed suicide can go to heaven, and only the dead can enter the underworld, so Percy is still trapped between life and death. However, just before he sinks into the void, Charon changes his mind and lets him go free...
Charon drops Percy off in the kingdom of the dead.
Percy must travel across the nation from Long Island, New York to Los Angeles, California to enter the underworld in The Lightning Thief, the first novel in the Percy Jackson and the Olympians series. They are then able to deceive Cerberus and make their way into the Underworld to meet with Hades.
Cerberus is a three-headed dog who guards the entrance to the Underworld. To gain entry, Persephone has agreed to marry Pluto. If she refuses, then all of humanity will be sent down there until someone pays for their sins. As punishment for killing Poseidon's son, Zeus, Pluto had imprisoned him in Tartarus under the sea. Only by offering his blood can Persephone avoid sending her husband back there.
Pluto then offers Hades the opportunity to take over Earth if he kills Zeus. Since this would mean destroying mankind, Hades refuses. However, he does promise to keep an eye on things from the underworld.
In order to reach the Underworld, Percy travels with Grover, a satyr who serves as his guide; Annabeth, a teenage goddess girl who plays a major role in rescuing her friends; and Charlie, a young god boy who joins them later on in the journey.
During their trip, they meet various characters who help or hinder them in their quest.
Percy arrives to Camp Half-Blood, where he hears that Grover is in hot water with the Council of Cloven Elders for failing to find Pan. During a tournament held by the new sword teacher, Quintus, Annabeth, and Percy inadvertently discover an opening into the labyrinth, presenting Luke with a viable invasion path. They tell no one but Grover, who secretly follows them into the maze.
When the twins return without their brother, they search for him inside the maze. There they meet the goddess Artemis, who offers her help in finding Pan. She tells them that he may be in danger and needs saving. Before they can ask how to rescue him, however, an assassin named Cercis (who was following them inside the maze) attacks and wounds Artemis. Fearful for their friend's life, the twins immediately follow his scent into the woods where they come across Cercis again. Before they can stop him, however, he kills himself by jumping into a pit of snakes. This revelation scares the twins so badly that they run away from Camp Half-Blood as soon as possible. When they arrive home, they tell their parents everything that has happened and why they believe Pan must be saved. Apollo then sends out an emergency signal to all Camps around Greece to prepare for battle.
Meanwhile, at the camp of Phoebus Apollo, Peter and Rachel de la Cruz learn about the invasion route through the labyrinth from their son Jason.
