Excellent book! I've been a huge fan of mythology since my 6th grade year when we actually learned a little about Greek mythology and Riordan is a master storyteller! The Heroes of Olympus books are long, but are not boring. They are well written, helping you to feel like you are part of the story every step of the way. Also, even though Riordan includes a dictionary/encyclopedia at the end, looking the characters up online on sites devoted to mythology help to cross-reference any and all other characters and places that relate to them at all. Very cool, especially considering a final Jeopardy answer recently was regarding Poseidon's "brother" which having been reading these books, was easy to answer (Hades (: ) yet none of the contestants knew the correct response. How is it possible that people no nothing about mythology anymore?

If you like mythology at all, these are absolutely wonderful books! They are easy to read, but challenging enough for adults to stimulate the brain! ( )

I loved that Annabeth took charge in this. She's always been the most badass girl around. The cliffhanger was brutal, but perfect. ( )

This book (the entire series, in fact) is not just for kids. Action packed and filled with drama, The Mark of Athena is a tremendous addition to the Heroes of Olympus series. The way that Rick Riordan has developed this story is unbelievable. A truly amazing book! ( )

Oh my god!
That ending ripped my heart apart then threw it around for dogs to feast on!
I was so happy at the start to see all the seven reunited and especially Percy and Annabeth! I missed having them together so much!!!
I'm loving how the story is progressing and I am curious to know what would happen in the future

On a side note though, I couldn't help but picture Gaea as Te Fiti from Moana

In the mark of Athena percy and his friends have to find the statue of athena. They try to make friends with camp jupiter and ghosts control Leo into starting war for camp jupiter. These same ghosts in the story control Percy and Jason into a big fight with each other. Percy and jason feel useless in one point of the book, cause golden boy is way to good for them in a sword fight. They meet hercales to get into the ancient lands and they have to tear a bulls horn off. Then as thy are leaving annabeth shoots food out of the horn and traps heracules in food.

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.
