Book Description

Oct. 2 2012 The Heroes of Olympus (Book 3)
In The Son of Neptune, Percy, Hazel, and Frank met in Camp Jupiter, the Roman equivalent of Camp Halfblood, 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 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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good book, good writer, excellent buy! Oct. 15 2012

Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
The writing of these books are amazing, and the cover art is fantastic. This limited edition (that arrived today, much to my excitement) is beautiful and I do not regret paying a little more for this copy! However, I warn the buyer of this product to handle the book inside of the sleeve (decorative case) VERY CAREFULLY. This is not Amazon's fault, but the manufacturers put the jacket of the book on a little askew, causing some minor dents, and when the sleeve was damaged on the inside, causing the taking out and putting in of the book to be a bit snug.

That being said, I would suggest any fan of this series who loves collector's items to snatch this purchase up right away as it won't disappoint!

"The Mark of Athena" is the third in Rick Riordan's current series, "The Heroes of Olympus," which feature both Greek and Roman demi-gods having to join together to battle the slowly awakening Gaia, who once fully awake will destroy the human and gods' worlds and let the monsters run rampant once again. As the title suggests, this book focuses on Athena's daughter, Annabeth, who is given the task of following the Mark of Athena to recover the long-lost, gigantic and magical statue of Athena Parthenos. A hugely difficult task, but getting the Roman and Greek demi-gods to work together, let alone their respective camps, is perhaps even more impossible. Can Leo, Piper, Hazel, Frank, Jason and Percy really work with Annabeth and save the world(s), as prophecy demands? Or will Gaia's minions destroy the demi-gods and sacrifice two of them to hasten Gaia's wakening?.... I do adore Riordan's fresh YA imaginings about ancient Greek and Roman mythology, and his fast pacing and multiple points of view chapters make this a wonderful read, as usual. Of course it ends in a cliffhanger because there's at least one more book in the series (though I think it'll be two, he's got a penchant for series of five it seems), and of course you have to have read the previous two books ("The Lost Hero" and "The Son of Neptune," respectively) to make sense of this one, but if you meet those requirements, this one doesn't disappoint at all. My one problem with the book (and the series) is that, basically, as a Celtic pagan, I'm really on Gaia's side, but in this series, She's the bad guy {g}....
