The Mark of Athena begins with the demigods going to Camp Jupiter a Roman camp. When the Argo 2 begins to descend into Camp Jupiter they are stopped by Terminus because there are no weapons aloud in Camp Jupiter. When the group of demigods (Piper, Annabeth, Leo, and Jason) enter the camp they are welcomed by Percy, Hazel, and Frank. Later a reunion is held and Ella the harpy speaks of a prophecy that references to Annabeth's quest The Mark of Athena. Soon after a possessing spirit takes over Leo on the ship and Leo begins to open fire on the Romans. The Romans are outraged on the Greeks for firing and the quest begins.

There quest then begins with the search for Baccus god of whine who has experience fighting the 2 giants who the 7 demigods will soon fight. Baccus then tells the 7 to go to Charleston. When the demigods make it to Charleston they meet Aphrodite who talks to the girl demigods for a bit until the Romans arrive attacking the group. Annabeth then goes another way into a cave where she finds a hint of a future enemy she will fight. The 7 then leave and reach the ocean where Chirons brother lives. A giant monster shrimp attacks the Argo 2 and Hazel, Leo, and Frank fall into the water. The 3 try to receive help for the coming war from Chiron's brother. Later the 7 reach near Hercules who says that Piper and Jason must get a horn from a former enemy and if they don't bring it in time he will destroy the ship.

Once the 7 demigods reached Rome they went into groups with Annabeth searching for the Athena statue, Piper, Jason, and Percy fought Otis and Ephialtes and Leo, Hazel, and Frank searched for Nico. Annabeth fights Arachne and stalls time until the others come. Jason and Percy defeat the giants while finding Nico along the way. Annabeth tricks Arachne and Arachne falls into Tartarus.

Book description
Annabeth is terrified.
Just when she's about to be reunited with Percy =- after six months of being apart, thanks to Hera - it looks lIke Camp Jupiter is preparing for war.

As Annabeth and her friends Jason, Piper and Leo fly in on the Argo II, she can't blame the Roman demigods for thinking the ship is a Greek weapon. with its steaming bronze dragon figurehead, Leo's fantastical creation doesn't appear friendly. Annabeth hopes that the sight of their praetor Jason on deck will reassure the Romans that the visitors form Camp Half-Blood are coming in peace.

And that's only one of her worries. IN her pocket, Annabeth carries a gift form her mother that came from an unnerving command: Follow the Mark of Athena. Avenge me. Annabeth already feels weighted down by the prophecy that will send seven demigods on a quest to find - and close - the Doors of Death. What more does Athena want from her?

Annabeth's biggest fear, though, is that Percy may have changed. What if he's now attached to Roman ways? Does he still need his old friends? As the daughter of the goddess of war and wisdom, Annabeth knows she was born to be a leader - but never again does she want to be without Seaweed Brain by her side.

Narrated by four different Demigods, the Mark of Athena is an unforgettable journey across land and sea to Rome, where important discoveries, surprising sacrifices, and unspeakable horrors await. Climb aboard the Argo II, if you dare...

From jacket cover. Putting it back on, discovered there's a cut out of the Argos II under the back flap with instructions on how to build your very own Argos II.
