Publisher's Summary

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 that the visitors from Camp Half-Blood are coming in peace.

And that’s only one of her worries. In her pocket, Annabeth carries a gift from her mother that came with an unnerving command: Follow the Mark of Athena. Avenge me. Annabeth already feels weighed down by the prophecy that will send seven demigods on a quest to find - and close - the Doors of Death. What more does Athena want from her?

Annabeth’s biggest fear, though, is that Percy might have changed. What if he’s now attached to Roman ways? Does he still need his old friends? As the daughter of the goddess of war and wisdom, Annabeth knows she was born to be a leader - but never again does she want to be without Seaweed Brain by her side.

    "A great addition to the story"
    Where does The Mark of Athena rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    its in the top of the list


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Mark of Athena?

    the ending


    What does Joshua Swanson bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    overall i like the person that read the first set better. I guess its that i was use to the voices of the char. from him


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    no, its just a great story line

    Story
    "Narrator doesn't do this justice"

    As an adult reader, I have been impressed with the Riordan mythology series. There's a good mix of action, education, and just plain silliness that obviously appeals to the young readers who have made Percy and friends so popular. This entry brings back the characters from the "Greek" side of mythology and mixes them with the "Roman" counterparts pretty ingeniously. I also like the way the author sets his stories in America and draws in our country's history and geography as well as the ancient themes and characters.

    My question is about the narration of all the Riordan books to which I have listened. Narrators seem to dumb down the voices, bringing out the dopey rather than the imaginative in the series. I find the reading diminishes the value of these books and insults the listeners, and I can't think that children react much differently. Compare them to the wonderful narrations of Jim Dale and Tim Curry in the Harry Potter and "Series of Unfortunate Events" books-- I wish someone would do equal justice to Riordan's work! I'd recommend the written versions over the Audible to both children and adults.

    "Rick at his Best!"

    This is Rick Riordan at his best! I think this is my favorite book in the Percy Jackson universe. Plus I loved finally getting to see parts of the story from Annabeth's viewpoint! That was great!

    Many of loose ends were tied up, while still leaving enough to make the wait for the next book horribly long.

    I've got to say that I am majorly jealous of Rick's writing skill. All of his books are awesome because of the great characters, great plot line, and his incredible research! But what makes his books shine above the others? His awesome sense of humor. It's amazing how he can add the strangest things to mythology, like having a giant that loves the ballet, or satyr that's obsessed with MMA.

    "Great Story with a Big Cliff Hanger"
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Mark of Athena to be better than the print version?

    Well, I like it both ways. But I would highly recommend the audio. The narrator does a good job with the characters and overall good job with reading the book.

    "Great Fun"
    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.

    "WOW"

    Another wonderful series to listen to this is the second to last book of the series and I have listened to all of his books and own them all and would suggest it to anyone who loves books about the Roman and Greek gods and their mortal children
