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.

    I really didn't like the parts where the guy does a fake girls voice, that's all. Or else it's cool.

    "Narrator is improving"
    What about Joshua Swanson’s performance did you like?

    I did not like his performance in the first book of this series, but I think he has really improved.


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

    Yes! It was very good!


    Any additional comments?

    Fantastic story line. I loved seeing both Anabeth's and Percy's point of view.

    Story
    "This is My Last Percy Jackson Book"

    I have listened to all of the Percy Jackson books and I have pretty much lost steam at this point. Each book is more and more similar to the previous one. Sometimes that works, but in this case, there is almost no innovation to each book. I originally thought the premise of the stories was clever -- why create new stories when you can just borrow from Greek and Roman mythology? Genius! -- but it is as though the author is on auto-pilot. I made it through because I listened to it at 3x speed and even then didn't really have to pay attention to get through it. I'm not planning to read any more Percy Jackson books.

    "Just OK"
    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?

    "A Great Third Adventure in this Story"
    Would you listen to The Mark of Athena again? Why?

    All in all this was a great book. It had some great points where each of the characters developed in some way or another. It had lots of good action and was a great read. I wish the ending hadn't been such a cliff hanger but that just makes me look forward to the next book that much more. I will definitely listen to it again.


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

    The two other Heroes of Olympus books were read by Swanson and I've like them all so far. His reading is great and his voice is so much easier to listen to that the guy who read the original Percy Jackson books.
