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.

    Story
    "Anna Beth the EPIC"
    What made the experience of listening to The Mark of Athena the most enjoyable?

    The Narrator really captured the whole cast incredibly. Anna Beth's personal quest and struggles as well as the wonderful yet horrible ending had me biting my nails!


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

    Can't say so no spoilers here. Just know that this book is going to make you wish you were a child of Athena.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The last few chapters were unbelievable.


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

    Yes, and then re-listen to make sure that I got all the wonders Riordan had written.


    Any additional comments?

    BUY THIS BOOK ITS WORTH IT! (if you have read/listened to the first two books but still worth it, just might not quite be as epic)!

    "Keeps you wanting more!"
    What did you love best about The Mark of Athena?

    Such a great series, such a great narrator!!!


    What about Joshua Swanson’s performance did you like?

    Joshua Swanson has the ability to make the book & characters come to life. I'd definitely listen to more books narrated by him. I'm EXTREMELY disappointed the narrator changed after this book - the pronunciations & voices of the character change, not for the better! =(
