Publisher's Summary

At the conclusion of The Mark of Athena, Annabeth and Percy tumble into a pit leading straight to the Underworld. The other five demigods have to put aside their grief and follow Percy's instructions to find the mortal side of the Doors of Death. If they can fight their way through the Gaea's forces, and Percy and Annabeth can survive the House of Hades, then the Seven will be able to seal the Doors from both sides and prevent the giants from raising Gaea. But, Leo wonders, if the Doors are sealed, how will Percy and Annabeth be able to escape?

They have no choice. If the demigods don't succeed, Gaea's armies will never die. They have no time. In about a month, the Romans will march on Camp Half-Blood. The stakes are higher than ever in this adventure that dives into the depths of Tartarus.

    "Changed Narrator!"

    I was really enjoying the storyline. I was looking forward to the adventure in the underworld, but frankly? This narrator is making it hard to get into the story. He's not interested in it. It's "just another book to read", to him. The narrator in the previous 3 in this series did his best to make the characters come alive and had individual personalities. I don't know them with this narrator.

    "Bad reading great story"

    I did not like the guy reading the book. It was annoying how he changed how words are said.

    "Narrator"

    Apparently, anyone is allowed to narrate books these days. I don't like when narrators are switched, but especially not when they are replaced by someone so awful. Every time a word ends with an "s" i cringe due to the narrator drawing out the "s." He sounds like a valley girl 99% of the time and he clearly didn't listen to the previous narrator. Leo's accent is completely gone/different. Did he even try?

    "Different Narrator"

    The narrator doesn't flow like the prior narrator...would have preferred they kept the same voice.

    "terrible"

    This book is basically a spoken word sitcom. it might as well have laugh track. The guy reading it sounds like a member of a popular boy band/ surfer dude. Many of the mythological terms and Godly names are mispronounced thorough out the entire series. The writing is trash, every time the author tries to give the characters some actual character it just ends up sounding like he's pandering to what he thinks the cool kids are into nowadays. It's as if he watched MTV all day and then sat down and wrote this book. Imagine Matthew McConaughey reading a transcript of your grandfather saying slang phrases like "on fleek", it's unbearably cringe worthy.

    "Great book, terrible narration."

    Why take a great story and have an awful narrator read it. Jesse or Joshua were Awesome, but this guy sucks. He can't even pronounce the names of the characters the same as the previous narrator.

    "Surprisingly disappointing"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    I wish I'd read the reviews, but we were enjoying the series so I just purchased them as we went not expecting such a change. We were surprised by the switch and can't fathom why they chose to do it. The narrator was just abysmal. My first grader has LOVED everything else by Rick Riordan he's listened to. He's even listened to the original Percy Jackson series twice. But he actually just gave up 1/2 way through this book. And he is a stickler for knowing the end of anything. I really, really hope they re-do the last two books in this series with a different narrator. I would buy them again because Riordan's writing is fun, but the listening is painful :(


    Would you be willing to try another one of Nick Chamian’s performances?

    Not a chance.
