Though the Greek and Roman crewmembers of the Argo II have made progress in their many quests, they still seem no closer to defeating the earth mother, Gaea. Her giants have risen - all of them - and they're stronger than ever. They must be stopped before the Feast of Spes, when Gaea plans to have two demigods sacrificed in Athens. She needs their blood - the blood of Olympus - in order to wake.

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?

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

My kids and I have been looking forward to this book for a year, they listen to the others all the time. My daughter was so excited to get the audio version today but that soon turned to tears on how bad the narration is. she asked to return it and read the book instead. Horrendous!

What didn’t you like about Nick Chamian’s performance?

It is like listening to a dead fish, there is no life in his voice, he makes the book sounds bland and boring! Save yourself money and buy the book.

Any additional comments?

I wish this book could be returned, its audio ruins the whole story, we will be buying the book!
