Annabeth returns in the third installment of the biggest series yet from Rick Riordan, author of the #1 New York Times best-selling Heroes of Olympus, Kane Chronicles, and Percy Jackson and the Olympians series.

In The Son of Neptune, Percy, Hazel, and Frank met in Camp Jupiter, the Roman equivalent of Camp Half-blood, and traveled to the land beyond the gods to complete a dangerous quest. The third book in the Heroes of Olympus series will unite them with Jason, Piper, and Leo. But they number only six—who will complete the Prophecy of Seven?

The Greek and Roman demigods will have to cooperate in order to defeat the giants released by the Earth Mother, Gaea. Then they will have to sail together to the ancient land—Greece itself—to find the Doors of Death. What exactly are the Doors of Death? Much of the prophecy remains a mystery...

With old friends and new friends joining forces, a marvelous ship, fearsome foes, and an exotic setting, The Mark of Athena promises to be another unforgettable adventure by master storyteller Rick Riordan. (Goodreads)

My Thoughts...

The Mark of Athena by Rick Riordan was probably one of my most anticipated reads for August, and for good reason! I really didn't expect to enjoy this series as much as I am, and even as much as I did the first Percy Jackson series, but I swear, the books just get better and better as they go along.

One of the things I like most about The Mark of Athena is that the seven heroes are finally together at last. You'd think that it would be hard keeping up with 7 Greek and Roman Demigods, but it's not. Each character is awesome, and all for completely different reasons. I really enjoy going along on their adventures with them. The secondary characters are pretty cool as well, including Coach Hedge, who never fails to make me laugh.

The storyline for the book follows along the same line as the previous book, and as with those previous books, I was completely hooked. There's really never a dull moment when you're reading this series, and that's definitely another thing I love about it. There were so many parts in the book that had me rolling with laughter, which is apparently exactly what I need at the moment. I'm really, really glad that all of the book in this series have already been published, because I don't know what I would have to do if I actually had to wait for the next book in the series to be released. *Grin*

Overall; The Mark of Athena was a great addition to The Heroes of Olympus series, and now I'm super excited to move on to The House of Hades next! I can't believe that I only have two more books to read before this series is complete, but, that just means that I can finally move on to ANOTHER of Rick's series. If you've not checked out this series yet, I highly recommend it! :)
