Mark of Athena

Mark of Athena by Rick Riordan is fantastic.  He just keeps getting better with every book, of course this means that we read it nonstop and then are anxiously waiting for the next book.  The story picks up right where The Son of Neptune ended.  Annabeth, Jason, Piper, and Leo are all flying along in the Argo II hoping that Camp Jupiter doesn’t think they are trying to start a war.  This paired with the weight of having the coin that Athena, her mother, gave her with the words “avenge me”  attached  as made life a little stressful for Annabeth.  However, this is not discouraging her from tracking down Athena’s statue and making things right.

Riordan writes such beautiful descriptions; I was in awe when he the described the statue of Athena.    He  also has such a gift for keeping his readers glued to his every word.  The tale never becomes repetitive or mundane.  In fact, they become more suspenseful and every bit of the story is packed with adventure.  This has been such a great spin off series from the Percy Jackson and the Olympians and is wonderful for all ages to read.
