This was yet another almost perfect entry for this saga. I really enjoyed the long POVs for the different characters. Even with the big cast, it was possible to see the different character arcs and the common goal.

My favourite part by far was the reunion with Percy and Annabeth. Rick Riordan really shines with Percy's POV but I still enjoyed and could empathize a lot with Piper and Leo's struggles.

I think the stakes felt a bit higher than they were, specially at the end.

It was a very good read, nevertheless, and I'm looking forward to the next one ( )

Tinha boas expectativas para este livro e posso dizer que não desiludiu. Foi, até ao momento, o melhor livro da série Heroes of Olympus.

O que mais gostei foi de finalmente ver todos os personagens a interagirem juntos, depois dos dois primeiros livros terem servido como setup para este momento. A mistura de ação e humor com todos estes personagens foi bastante bem executada e gostei bastante da expansão do universo do Rick Riordan com esta mistura de deuses e monstros Gregos e Romanos.

Outra coisa que também gostei bastante foi termos, pela primeira vez, o POV da Annabeth. Foi interessante ver, pela primeira vez, os pensamentos e sentimentos de um personagem que esteve tão presente nos últimos 7 livros da série. O que faz sentido, tendo em conta que este era o "seu" livro. E surpreendeu-me a evolução do Leo, de uma personagem secundária a ter um papel bem grande nesta narrativa e espera-se que continue bastante importante no próximo.

De pontos a melhorar, o livro, por vezes, sentiu-se um bocado longo e o final, num previsível cliffhanger, o que nos deixa a querer mais, por um lado, mas, por outro, não da uma sensação de conclusão da história deste livro.

Concluindo, fãs da série que chegaram a este ponto seguramente irão gostar deste livro. E sem dúvida, dos melhores da série até agora, dou um 4.5/5. ( )

Now that I've read the Magnus Chase trilogy I can kind of see where there's a lot of unneeded story in this five book set? Don't get me wrong, I'm really liking it so far, but I feel like some could have been edited out and made the books slightly shorter and maybe less daunting to some? Still, the storyline progressed well with the wit and humor you would expected from Riordan. 4 out of 5 stars. ( )

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.
