:O Oh My Gosh!!!!! Riordan, why did you have to make such an amazing cliff-hanger ending! You are cruel

I borrowed The Lost Hero at my school library and finished it. Then, I got The Son of Neptune from Kerrisdale and finished it in one day. I couldn't wait any longer to read The Mark of Athena, so I started reading it online. The text is all itty bitty...:(

AWESOME book but the cliff hangar at the end made me almost angry. when I read the book I was excited to FINALY find out exactly what some characters were thinking. especially Annabeth. wonder what architectural designs she's thinking about right? I advise not even BEGGINNING to read these series until the last book comes out, and before you do even be sure you have instant access to them all or the cliff-hangars at the ends will kill you, and once you start the series you won't be able to stop(unless you hate Rick Riordan) (same with PJO).

Percy + Annabeth and the crew = a really fun adventure. I read this thinking, "This is going to be so epically AWESOME!" Then I read it and was blown away by how romantic and epic it was. But why did he have to leave us @ the cliff hanger? I am SOOOOO MAD!

After their perilous adventures, Annabeth, Jason, Leo, and Piper arive to the Roman camp. After they reunite with Percy, the prophecy of 7 have been exiled by some magic causing a slip up of Leo. They now go on, yes, another quest to find the Mark of Athena, a symbol of the wisdom goddess that has potential to reunite the camps together. But there is a catch, Annabeth must do this alone, as said by the prophecy. Can Annabeth alone save the camps, split by grief and accusations?

Jason, Annabeth, Leo and Piper finally meet Hazel, Frank and Percy. Together, they have to complete the prophecy of 7....this book is absolutely amazing, because of all the greek mythology that you could learn from it, and the fact that all the characters seem so real.

There is a little bit of fighting but it comes at apropriate times and the fighting actually makes it more exciting. I love the ending because Annabeth and Percy are going to have to work together except I hate how they leave you hanging at the end.

Nothing like total failure to generate great ideas.

" Roman eagles can hunt demigods by their magical scent even better than monsters can. This ship might conceal us somewhat, but not completely-not from them" Jason said. Leo drummed his fingers. "Great. I should have installed a smoke screen that makes the ship smell like a giant chicken nugget. Remind me to invent that, next time." Hazel frowned. " What is a chicken nugget?" "Oh, man..."Leo shook his head in amazement. "That's right. You've missed the last like, 70 years. Well, my apprentice, a chicken nugget-" "Doesn't matter," Annabeth interrupted.
