    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.

    Scott Fabel says: "Another Solid Story in the Heroes of Olympus Serie"

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Once again Rick Riordan has delivered. This series has been great fun for both myself and my daughter to listen to. The mythilogical references are great conversation starters for us and have ignited an interest in my daughter.


    What other book might you compare The Mark of Athena to and why?

    I would compare Rick Riordan's books to Harry Potter, engaging and entertaining for all ages.

    After losing his leg to a land mine in Afghanistan, Cormoran Strike is barely scraping by as a private investigator. Then John Bristow walks through his door with an amazing story: his sister, the legendary supermodel Lula Landry, famously fell to her death a few months earlier. The police ruled it a suicide, but John refuses to believe that. The case plunges Strike into the world of multimillionaire beauties, rock-star boyfriends, and desperate designers, and it introduces him to every variety of pleasure, enticement, seduction, and delusion known to man.

    Tracey says: "Unbelievable debut mystery set in London"
    "Thoroughly pleased!!"

    Story
    Where does The Cuckoo's Calling rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This was a great story! Great characters, interesting story, and a perfect amount of humor and humanity. The narrator did a wonderful job of delivering each character and the subtly nuances of each of them.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    I can normally guess the end of a book long before I've reached then end. But with this story I had my suspects all of which where wrong.


    Have you listened to any of Robert Glenister’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I have not listened to Robert Glenister's other audio performances but this was a perfect performance.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    There's a part where the main character Strike and his assistant finally bond. It was a sweet scene and felt real.


    Any additional comments?

    I really did love this book, and I do hope to see more of Strike and Robin. I hope that JK Rowling doesn't let the fact that her pen name was found out hold her back from writing more. This book was a great success and I would be very sad if the story of Strike ended here.
