    Percy and Annabeth are reunited. Jason is back at his old camp. The 7 demigods are now one team. Great, right? WRONG. They still have much danger ahead of them and Leo becomes posessed and fires on Camp Jupiter! War is sparked and the demigods have much more to worry about between retrieving the Athena Parthenos, saving Nico Di Angelo, getting rid of those pesky things that keep possesing their friends and even causing Percy and Jason to duel, and stoping Gaea from waking. I love this book.

      Our demigods are back and are now all united. Percy and Annabeth are reunited after months apart and Jason has gained his memory back. They all meet up in New Rome and everything's going great. They all get caught up, and are happy. Until Leo fires on New Rome and all heck breaks out. But it's not what it seems. Leo would never do something like that. He was possessed. The demigods must flee before the Romans kill them. Now, they have accidently sparked yet another war between camps. Annabeth believes that if she finds the Athena Parthenos, everything would become okay. So she sets out on that quest. Things go from bad to worse when Piper starts seeing disturbing images in her knife. She, Percy, and Jason drowning in dark water is one of them. Percy has seen some disturbing things too. Like Nico Di Angelo trapped in a jar in a coma with only a few days to live with two giants guarding him. Plus, Frank and Leo are at each others neck because Frank is worried Leo is after Hazel. Yet again our demigods have many dangerous problems to face and so little time to solve them. What will our half-bloods do?

                  Annabeth Chase and Percy Jackson have been together since the age of twelve, but ever since Percy went missing, it's been week after week of sleepless nights and mindless searching for each other. Now that they've both put together the pieces, this iconic book couple reunites with tears and kisses. Yet their minacious adventures are far from over: Annabeth gets visits from Minerva, her mother Athena's Roman counterpart, warning her about strange concepts such as the Mark of Athena. Haunted by more and more frequent visions, Annabeth suddenly understands that she must follow the Mark of Athena and bring back the treasure that will unite Camp Jupiter and Camp Half-Blood. Percy and Annabeth are destined to be burdened with danger after danger, but this time, Annabeth travels alone. And between the odds of life and death, it is most likely that Annabeth will not return alive.

                      Considering how good the first two books were, it was no surprise that “The Mark of Athena” was a spectacular book. In this book, the Argo II crew has to separate into little groups and go on vastly dangerous adventures, which includes the scariest nymphs they’ve ever seen to the terrible wrath of Athena’s greatest (spider) enemy. The thing I liked the most about this book is how much Annabeth, Percy, and the others have developed from insecure demigods to powerful demigods who are even willing to face their biggest fears (like *spiders*) to save the world.
