The Mark of Athena book. Read reviews from the world's largest community for readers. Annabeth is terrified. Just when she's about to be reunited . 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?.
People are entitled to their own opinions. Talking about character development: relationship development. Percybeth in this book was different. Typically, they have a "lighthearted, awkward, teasing relationship.
Percy is still the same but he develops a major fear and grows slightly weary of the hero life.
As a result of the character changes, the relationship changes. I can see how people don't like these changes but I personally applaud them because it shows Percy and Annabeth are growing up and maturing. The other relationship which was developed was Jasper. You can see how they are sort of perfect for each other. On the other hand, I can see the issues with their relationship because: 1 Piper likes Jason for what she wants him to be 2 Jason is impassive.
If you don't like the relationship and character development there is lots of action. We have our usual selection of monsters which our heroes fight them off with their God given powers. I particularly liked that the heroes didn't just try to brute force beat an opponent. If the other person was stronger, faster, or just genuinely better, the hero would use their intelligence to beat them. The Romans had knocked him unconscious before they boarded.
She is also afraid of the visions she sees in her charmed knife. One of them shows the Romans rallying to find the Argo II and stop the quest.
Another shows Piper, Percy and Jason drowning in a circular room. Jason finally wakes up as the other demigods return from their errands. Leo quickly repairs the ship, and they set off for Topeka, as Piper had seen the destination in her knife, along with the god Bacchus. Once they land, Percy, Piper and Jason set off to find the god. Percy calls his Pegasus, Blackjack, while Jason calls Tempest, a wind horse. Piper rides with Jason. When they meet with Bacchus, he gives them information about the twin giants they must face to free Nico.
He also says he won't help fight the giants unless he is given a proper tribute. Before he leaves, he tells the demigods to go to Atlanta and find Phorcys, the twins' brother. He might be able to help them.
Gaea's voice rises from the fields around them. Jason and Percy are possessed by eidolons, evil spirits, and are ordered to fight to the death. Jason is knocked unconscious again, but before Percy can kill him, Piper gets Blackjack to knock him out as well. She brings the boys back to the ship where they are given ambrosia, a healing liquid.
They reveal what they learned from Bacchus. Piper realizes the eidolons are still on the ship. When she asks them to reveal themselves, Jason, Percy and Leo all raise their hands.
The Mark of Athena
Using her charmspeak, a powerful ability to persuade others to do what she wants, Piper gets the eidolons to leave the ship and promise never to possess another member of the crew again. In the morning, Percy tells the others about a dream he had of the twin giants.
They kept Nico in a large, sealed urn. He had five seeds with him. Hazel explains that these seeds deaden the body's systems so it can survive without food, water and little oxygen, one day at a time. The demigods land in Atlanta. Percy, Hedge and Frank look for Phorcys at the aquarium.
An employee named Kate leads them through a special entrance, explaining that they are VIPs. The demigods suspect she is some kind of monster, but follow her anyway. She takes them into an area hidden from the rest of the tourists. Mythical sea creatures are kept drugged and captive in tanks. Phorcys arrives and explains how he and his sister Keto Kate were exiled to Atlanta after supporting the Titans in an ancient war. Phorcys babbles about Gaea's plan to kill a group of demigods. All but two must be destroyed.
A boy and girl must be saved to be offered as a sacrifice in order for Gaea to attain her full power. He also lets it slip that there is a map in Charleston that could help them in Rome. Then he imprisons Percy and Frank in an enchanted tank. They manage to escape with Coach Hedge's help. They flee to the Argo II, pursued by sea monsters. Leo gets the ship in the air, and they travel to Charleston. There they meet Aphrodite, who offers them tea. She explains that the ancient rift between Romans and Greeks came when the Romans stole the statue of Athena that stood in the Parthenon.
They split Athena's personality when they took the god, changing her into Minerva — the goddess of wisdom and crafts — and Bellona — the goddess of war. Athena never forgave the Romans, and throughout the centuries, has sent her children to try to find the statue and restore it to Greece. Annabeth must seek it when they arrive in Rome.
They are interrupted by the arrival of Roman legionnaires. Annabeth throws her knife into the harbor, which alerts Percy to their trouble. He causes a tidal wave to overpower the Romans. They must then save Frank and Leo, who have been shot down over Fort Sumter.
The Romans have an army ready for battle, and they are surrounding the fort. Reyna finds Annabeth and begs her to return to the Roman camp for a trial. If she doesn't, the entire force of the Roman army will go up against Camp Half-blood. Annabeth convinces Reyna to let the seven demigods try to complete their quest.
Annabeth and her friends manage to escape, and Leo sails the Argo II out to the ocean, where the Romans are afraid to follow. Hazel shows Leo one of her memories so he can see why he reminds her of her old boyfriend Sammy. The memory shifts to show an old man Hazel doesn't recognize. Eventually they realize that the man is Sammy and that Leo is his great-grandson. Sammy asks baby Leo to help Hazel if he ever sees her. Before they can process what they've seen, a giant shrimp-like creature attacks the ship.
Leo, Frank and Hazel are swept overboard and taken prisoner by fish centaurs. Once convinced they aren't enemies, the centaurs help the demigods. The demigods promise to free the sea creatures held captive by Phorcys. He demands they retrieve the remaining horn of the river god, Achelous. If they fail to bring him the horn by sundown, Hercules will kill them. The demigods find Achelous. Piper tricks Achelous into believing she will become his wife so he'll let Jason go free.
Jason calls down lightning to electrify the river and destroy the god. Piper manages to take his horn before he dissolves into the water. They refuse to give the horn to Hercules, instead burying him under an avalanche of food that comes from the horn, which is a cornucopia.
Once back on the boat, they are attacked by Chrysaor, another son of Poseidon, and his army of dolphin-men. Once again, the demigods are able to use deception to defeat their enemy. This time, Percy convinces the dolphin-men that Bacchus, their mortal enemy, has pledged his help to their quest.
The dolphin-men flee in terror. Frank transforms into a giant bear and attacks Chrysaor, forcing him off the boat. Once in Rome, the demigods must split up to pursue their different quests.
Annabeth seeks to follow the Mark of Athena to her mother's statue. She eventually finds the cavern of Mithras. The spirits who guard it threaten that she may never leave.
Annabeth uses her wits to keep herself alive and manages to escape by collapsing the cavern ceiling. She breaks her ankle in the process and must accomplish the rest of her quest in excruciating pain. They end up in secret tunnels under the Pantheon, an ancient temple. Leo is thrilled to discover the spheres and scrolls of Archimedes, another son of Hephaestus and a brilliant engineer.
Before they can leave with their treasures, they are attacked by the eidolons. The spirits take possession of the various machines Archimedes had created and attack Frank and Hazel. Throughout the novel, the juxtaposition of humor and terror makes both aspects of the writing more vivid. The demigods use their wits and their weapons skillfully in a string of encounters, and their insecurities make the characters all the more appealing.
With a true storyteller's sense of pacing, Riordan creates another compelling adventure, right down to the cliff-hanger at the end.
Stay tuned for volume four. Review quote Terrifying dreams and enigmatic prophecies mean danger for seven teen demigods, but also good times for fans of The Heroes of Olympus series. About Rick Riordan Rick Riordan www.
