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.

I loved the first two audio books in this series. Better story than the preceding Percy Jackson series, and the former narrator was doing an awesome job with the voices. Sadly they switched the narrator and now it has almost ruined this series for me. He reads super slow, really long pauses and just no excitement (he seems really bored and detached). Terrible voices and accents compared to the previous narrator.
I'll return this audio book and hunt down a hard copy instead...
The only time I would pick another book read by Chamian is if it's because of a switch in the middle of a good series. His mispronunciation of simple, common words is extremely annoying. When he should say "since" he says "sense", "hull" is "hole", and several other similar things that really makes it difficult to enjoy this book and the fifth book.
Narrator does not have the depth or breadth needed ... Sounds like a snotty dumb teenager
Hate the narrator
Use old narrator
