    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.

    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    Its childish considering the characters are teenagers not fifth graders.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Rick Riordan? Why or why not?

    Yes! The end keeps you waiting and you cant stop there!


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Joshua Swanson?

    He sounds like 34 different people!


    Was The Mark of Athena worth the listening time?

    Well of course! I mean what else are you supposed to do during a five hour drive?


    Any additional comments?

    Six years earlier, Matty had come to Village as a scrappy and devious little boy. Back then, he liked to call himself "the Fiercest of the Fierce." But since that time, Matty has grown almost into a man under the care of Seer, a blind man whose special sight had earned him the name. Now Matty hopes that he will soon be given his true name, and he hopes it will be Messenger. But strange changes are taking place in Village.

    What did you love best about Messenger?

    I like the way all the characters from previous books meet in village


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    The way that forest turns against everyone and has a mind of its own was cool but the main character just had to fall in love with the prettiest girl in village, blah


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

    No


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No because evantually your mind would begin to wonder and you could miss important details


    Any additional comments?

    I think their could have been more of a story to it instead of just a journey
