I LOVE these books. I only hate that I have to wait a year for the next book in the series. Despite Rick Riordan carrying on this story so long, it never gets slow, repetitive or boring. The Greek demigods and the Roman demigods are finally meeting a Camp Jupiter and discussing the quest of the seven. Of course, things never go as planned--starting with the Greek warship accidentally attacking the Roman camp, starting the civil war between the two groups. Annabeth has been given an impossible task that children of Athena have been failing at for centuries. And Percy and Jason must put aside their individual personalities and learn to work together, all while trying to stay a step ahead of Gaea and to survive the "assistance" from meddling gods and goddesses! I can't wait for the next book!”

“The seven demigods aboard the Argo II are on a quest to kill the giants and Gaea. Annabeth's mother, Athena, gives her an Athenian silver drachma. She tells her to avenge her. The seven demigods, following the prophecy go on exciting missions and adventures.”Senna Hahn wrote this review Saturday, November 10, 2012. ( reply | permalink ) Was this review helpful? Yes | No

“Mark of Athena is the 3rd book in the Heroes of Olympus series. These mythological adventures are geared toward middle school readers, but they are fun for all ages. Riordan does not disappoint in Mark of Athena. Fans of the Percy Jackson and the Olympians series will find that Percy is still a main character in the HofO, but he shares the spotlight with 6 other demigods. Mark of Athena switches back and forth between perspectives of Percy, Leo, Annabeth and Piper. The gang is now aboard the Argo II and heading on a journey which will lead them to Rome. Annabeth has been commissioned by her mother to find the Mark of Athena and avenge her. Leo and Coach Hedge provide comic relief along the way as they also attempt to rescue Hazel's brother (Nico D'Angelo). It's an exciting adventure and readers will be biting their nails as it comes to a close. Book 4, The House of Hades will be hard to wait for!”lindajoy wrote this review Friday, November 9, 2012.

“term two review.
setting: the setting takes place in new rome at the begining. but as they start there new quest they make there way to rome. along they way they make multiple stops and one of them being the great salt lake. In the story they are on the argo l l l (3) sailing through the sky and the ocean. they describe all of there settings perfectley so i could see the salt lake and every where else and it seemes like i was there aswell.
character: my favorite character has to be annabeth. Annabeth has a lot of wisdom, being the daughter of athena. she also is very good at battle strategy. she can thank her mom for both of those, but she is not feeling much love toward or from her mom at the time. she was dishoned a little earlier unless she follows the mark of athena and succeeds in her quest.i also really like piper. a daughter of aphrodite who uses her beauty and charm speak to persuade people.
plot: in this annebeth is trying to find and follow the mark of athena, while percy and his crew are all trying to stop gaea from awaking. Gaea is planning to destroy the world and make it her own. she is getting stronger and bringing bigger, stronger monsters from tarturous. Percy, annebeth, piper, jason, leo, frank, and hazel are trying to close the doors of death, and save hazels brother, nico. while all of this is happening, reyna(the leader of the roman demigods) is looking for war with the greek demigods. The roman demigods are traveling to the territory of the greeks,planning to destroy and conquer them.”
