In the Mark of Athena we see the seven demigods of the prophecy come together and begin their voyage to the Ancient Lands in order to defeat Gaea and find the doors of death. I personally really enjoyed reading from the view of Annabeth as this book features her big quest in order to retrieve the Athena Parthenos and mend the rivalry between Greeks and Romans. The twist at the end is also extremely suspenseful. This was one of my favorite books of the series.

Rick Riordan is AMAZING. For over a year, all i've read are books by him. I TOTALLY recommend him!!!

I like that Annabeth just casually mentions that Jason and Percy could have done great killing each other. Vote: Tempest or Blackjack?

This is the first part of what is virtually a trilogy, since the first two books were more stand alone in nature. It’s great to see the two camps meet, and start the journey across seas. Team Leo!!!!!!!

To add a comment to this book is really to add a comment about this series. My opinion about this series is that it’s a good one to follow the Percy Jackson books. Riordan did a good job with this series, which I think topped his first. I liked how thick this book was. Checking out a book from a library just to finish it the same day is satisfying, but a little annoying. I’m a big reader and enjoyed the humor and drama this book holds. Go Team Leo!

This book is amazing! I remember when I finished the book and read the ending cliffhanger. I was like "give me the next book now!" wait... sorry I started reading the next one immediately XD. This book is a good one, trust me.

The mark of Athena combined The lost hero and The son of Neptune to the most exiting, action packed book of modern Greek and roman demigods (+ 1 coach hedge ). My favorite character in this book was coach hedge because he randomly yells Die! and kills monsters with his baseball bat. If your looking for a good book to read READ THIS SERIES.

All around the Romans, charolsten bay erupted like a San Francisco fount ion putting on a show. The Romans washed out to the sea. Percy stood on the deck, holding Annabeth's dagger.
"You dropped this."

"Save your selves!" Percy warned. "It's too late for us!"
Then he gasped and pointed to the spot where Frank was hiding. "Oh, no, Frank is turning into a crazy Dolphin!"
Nothing happened.
"I said," Percy repeated. "Frank is turning into a crazy dolphin!"
Frank stumbled out of no where, making a big show of grabbing his throat. "Oh, no," he said like he was reading from a TelePrompTer. "I am Turning into a crazy Dolphin."
He bed an to Chang, his nose enlarging into a snout, his skin becoming sleek and grey. He fell over on the deck as a dolphin. His tale flapping against the floor boards.

Frank advert end his eyes as if the sight of them together might burn him.
"Every one thinks you've been kidnapped," he said. "We've been scouring the ship. When Coach Hedge finds out--oh, gods, you've been here all night?"
"Frank!" Annabeth's ears were as red as strawberries. "We just came down here to talk. We fell asleep, accidentally. That's it."
"Kissed a couple of times." Percy said.
Annabeth glared at him. " Not helping!"
"Uh, were supposed to meet for breakfast. Would you mind explaining what you did--I mean, didn't do? I mean...I really don't want that faun--I mean satyr-- to kill me."
Frank ran.

After their perilous adventures, Annabeth, Jason, Leo, and Piper arive to the Roman camp. After they reunite with Percy, the prophecy of 7 have been exiled by some magic causing a slip up of Leo. They now go on, yes, another quest to find the Mark of Athena, a symbol of the wisdom goddess that has potential to reunite the camps together. But there is a catch, Annabeth must do this alone, as said by the prophecy. Can Annabeth alone save the camps, split by grief and accusations?

Jason, Annabeth, Leo and Piper finally meet Hazel, Frank and Percy. Together, they have to complete the prophecy of 7....this book is absolutely amazing, because of all the greek mythology that you could learn from it, and the fact that all the characters seem so real.

There is a little bit of fighting but it comes at apropriate times and the fighting actually makes it more exciting. I love the ending because Annabeth and Percy are going to have to work together except I hate how they leave you hanging at the end.

IGNORE THE PEOPLE WHO TRY TO SUCK YOU INTO THINKING THAT THIS BOOK HAS LOTS OF FIGHTING. .
