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.

The Percy Jackson books are some of my favorites. Nick Chamian is a good narrator, although it gets a bit slow and there are a couple of spots where he switches up a couple character voices. Still, it is well worth the listen.
Was so happy when Josh Swanson took over for Jesse Bernstein who narrated the last Olympians, because his accents were at best over the top and at worst straight up racist. Now, after the first three books, Josh Swanson been replaced by Nick "Stuffy Nose" Chaiman who's accent for Hazel fluctuated between a bad southern accent and a bad English accent. What gives? Come back Josh!
I like SciFi, I enjoy programing, website design, marketing, industrial art, ceramics, music, and listening to books.
This series of books are a great romp through Greek and Roman mythology. Entertainment worth the price of admission, and as an audio book, the family can enjoy it at their own pace.
This is one of the best books of the series. If nick would have started the series I probably would not have listened to it. he made listening to it really rough. It was only by pure stubbornness I made it through this book.
