    WHAT KIND OF AN ENDING WAS THAT, HUH WHERE WAS THE HAPPY ENDING Oh my God Percy and Annabeth why why why why why I won t lie, this book was the book that I was the most excited about in this series This was the book that all the seven demigods were finally going to meet each other for the first time, and start their quest AND of course, the Percabeth reunion whooooooooooooooooooooo Rick Riordan hasn t failed me yet His characters are still what I love about his books the most Okay, so I know that I said that I disliked Jason and Piper before, but they re growing on me At least Piper is Jason, I m still not sure about Something about that guy says traitor to me Am I the only one But everyone else, Percy, Annabeth, Hazel, Frank and Leo, I absolutely loved I have to say though, I expected relationships built during the course of 500 pages Like some nice siblingy relationships or some tension, like with Percy and Jason for example I felt like there were opportunities for them to have gotten to know each other , like Piper and Hazel, or Leo and Percy, or Frank and Jason But I suppose in their defense, they DID have to fight off monsters and enemies 82% of the time view spoiler Frank, Hazel and Leo, though I am so torn about them On one hand, I find Hazel and Leo absolutely adorable together although the Sammy thing DID kinda freak with my mind , but then I d feel so sorry for Frank if this happens UGGGG Love triangles You hate em and you love em Riordan did pretty good on this part of the story and I m definitely looking forward to how their relationship will blossom in the next books hide spoiler

    My Not So Final Final Review Let s start this review in the most eloquently put way I can I have no idea how to write this review.When I finished this book a while ago, I would log onto Goodreads every single day and every single day, I would look at my pre review and think, how can I write this review What should I include, what should I put emphasis on I would simply just stare at my laptop s screen until my mom called me down for dinner.I wish I could write this review to the high calibar it deserves I wish I could write this review that could do this book justice, a review that would please all the people who liked my pre review I wish, I wish so badly, that I could write a review that would be able to express how badly I loved this book, how much I sobbed when I read that damned ending and how I just couldn t contain a fan girl squel everytime Percy and Annabeth shared a kiss.Unfortunately, my wish cannot come true Dare I say it, I believe no one can write a review justice for this book It s just not possible But of course, it wouldn t be like me not to try I haven t read a good book in a long time Far too overdue Luckily, Mark of Athena was the perfect book to solve my problem It wasn t just good It was amazing I would marry this book if I could sort of good This book though, should definitely come with a warning like this, right on the front page WARNING Reading will cause excessive sobs laughs and an extreme conflict of emotions.Riordan is able to toy with your brain and make you cry when you thought you were happy and make you laugh when you should have been sad It s confusing, it still confuses me but it is also amazing My emotions no longer were controlled by me, but controlled by this book Can you imagine that A book controlling my emotions, an inanimate object controlling my emotions But that s the beauty of a well written book, it stops being inanimate, the words start to come to life.Or perhaps I am over thinking this and Riordan just takes pleasure in watching his fans have their minds blown.Another helpful warning tip Be prepared to have no other book be able to captivate you again, or at least for a very long time After reading this book, I wandered around aimlessly at my library, glancing over the pretty cover arts and the interesting titles but none being able to fully capture my attention For once, in all my years of existance, I left the library empty handed Why Because I was still living in the world of fantasy, in the world where Greek Gods were real and that demi gods walked the Earth When you read Mark of Athena, you ll leave your ordinary life I left my reality of homework and tests and school and entered a world of action and humour and overall awesomeness And don t we all want to just escape reality for a little, and experience some awesomeness I know I do.But let s move on to the meat of the review My Speculations How off was I Speculation Percy and Annabeth will reunite and share a kiss.Reality OH YEAH They sure reunited and their reunion was everything the fans could have asked for It was tres romantic without going overboard And my little idea that they could have a kiss every single chapter didn t come true, but Percy and Annabeth SURE kissed a lot Percabeth kiss count I m tallying it up but I m predicting over 10 I ll update soon if I don t, you have the right to spam my account Speaking of Percabeth, this book definitely had it s fair share in the lime light There were numerous mentions of it throughout the book and I couldn t be pleased.Even that ending, was Percabeth I know, I know, we re all sobbing over what happened to our favourite characters but stop and think of the romantic aspect of it view spoiler Percy said he wouldn t lose her again So they went together, tell me that s not romantic hide spoiler

    OH GOD OH MAN OH GOD OH MAN.I just I can t even I can t Well Good job Rick Riordan You have written another glorious book Congrats I salute you But YOU ARE ALSO A HUGE TROLL, AND YOU ARE STOMPING ALL OVER MY FUCKING HEART, AND THAT ENDING WAS SO SAD AND BEAUTIFUL, AND HOW AM I SUPPOSED TO WAIT A YEAR FOR THE NEXT ONE HOWWWWWW But okay, okay Let s start at the very beginning A very good place to staaaart In his usual trollish fashion, Riordan left the previous book in the series The Son of Neptune just as Annabeth, Piper, Jason, and Leo were about to fly into Camp Jupiter AND PERCY AND ANNABETH WERE ABOUT TO BE REUNITED AT LAAAST And then it was like THE END And we all threw the book across the room, am I right So, The Mark of Athena starts out exactly where the last book left off Annabeth co are flying towards Camp Jupiter where Percy co are waiting for them.We finally, FINALLY get the Percabeth reunion we ve all been waiting for After two whole books and like 15 pages, Percy and Annabeth finally see each other again and they kiss and then Annabeth like judo flips Percy and tells him never to leave her again and AWWWW I CAN T HANDLE ALL MY FEELS.So yeah, after waiting like 1,000 pages it finally happened and it was totally worth the wait It was perfect.But of course, since this is a Rick Riordan book, nothing stays perfect And after not too long, there s a little mishap in which things explode, and well there s a bit of a misunderstanding And let s just say, Percy, Annabeth, Leo, Piper, Jason, Frank, and Hazel all have to leave straightaway and also they might have accidentally turned Camp Half Blood and Camp Jupiter against each other In typical Riordan style, there s a main plot in the book but it s also made up of a lot of little mini adventures in which the characters have to go on a bunch of different quests and of course face a wide variety of crazy monsters and gods and all that jazz And all of it is leading up to Annabeth taking one quest on her own and fulfilling a prophecy that has some rather ominous implications Don t all prophecies This was a long book and it took me quite a while to read However, I thought that as usual Riordan does a good job keeping the plot moving from one point to the next, and each little quest is almost like its own little story so there s no room for getting bored.Probably the most daunting task in this book was having to juggle all the characters Now that the two groups from the previous books have joined together, that makes seven major characters to keep track of.Yikes.But Riordan handles this quite well He does a good job paying equal attention to all the major characters and having them all interact with each other in one way or another The huge group tends to branch off in pairs or groups of three or so as they go off on their various quests, so that makes it a bit easier to keep track of everyone.The only thing that gets a tad annoying about this is that sometimes you won t know what happens to certain characters for like 50 pages at a time Like, one character will be about to fall off a cliff and it ll be like, TROLOLO time to go talk about another character for 100 pages So, sometimes I would be impatiently waiting to hear about what was going on with a certain character and I wouldn t get to know forever and ever But other than that, it wasn t too painful.Anyway as for the character development in this book, it was mostly awesome.I say mostly because some of the characters became a lot likable than others Towards the end, I wasn t that crazy about Jason or Piper I didn t like Jason very much in The Lost Hero and I was expecting him to become a compelling character but nah I still feel like he s pretty boring in comparison to the others He just doesn t have much of a personality, plus he s magically kickass and awesome and perfect at everything So, he s just not all that interesting to me Piper is slightly better, and I liked her for the most part in The Lost Hero, but in The Mark of Athena I kind of got impatient whenever the story was focused on her Maybe it was just that I don t like her as much as most of the other characters I don t hate her, but I don t love her either I think she s kind of a damsel in distress and just meh I m not a huge fan.But other than those two, I found the character growth in The Mark of Athena to be excellent.First of all, it s great to see how much Percy and Annabeth have matured over the course of all the books I almost got a little teary eyed from nostalgia a few times I kind of grew up with these books, in a way throughout my teenage years anyway That is, I was around 12 when the first book came out and they were 12 in the first book and every year when the next book came out, I would have aged another year just like they had Well, and now they re stuck at 16 and I m 20 but STILL I ve had these books in my life for quite a long time now, and it just means a lot to me to see them so grown up I mean, Percy used to be so clueless and had no idea what he was doing 99% of the time And now he s like wicked badass but he still stresses out about trying to save the world and crap and ugggh And Annabeth used to be kind of mean and also got herself into trouble by having too much pride and yada yada and even though she s still super brave and kickass and all, she s open and humbled and EEEP it s just fantastic.And see, in a lot of books where two characters officially get together, the author tends to screw it up by a making their relationship too damn perfect, or b making everything go to heck and have something ridiculous happen like they break up again or whatever But no, not our dear Rick Riordan Yes, Percy and Annabeth do get a lot of time together in this book and it s really sweet But, Riordan doesn t overkill it For a lot of the book, Percy and Annabeth are off on separate quests doing what they need to do As much as they care about each other, they both also realize that they have a duty to fulfill and that s what s most important.What I also love is that Annabeth doesn t depend on Percy to protect her or any crap like that And also, Percy recognizes that Annabeth can take care of herself Even when she has to go on her quest alone and could possibly die, Percy still lets her go not that he doesn t want to help her, but because he knows she needs to do it and that she s strong enough to succeed I mean, can we all just stop and appreciate this for a second DO YOU KNOW HOW RARE THIS IS IN YA BOOKS DO YOU Seriously, they re like the best fictional couple EVER GAHHHH In addition, Annabeth is just so awesome and courageous in this book I felt like she finally got the spotlight she deserved after so many books, and Riordan really gives her a time to shine and she makes the most of it I mean, dang she has to go on this crazy quest by herself, and face one of her worst fears view spoiler ARACHNE, AAHHHH hide spoiler

    Uncle Rick Now you are going to torture me with cruel cliffhangers Really I didn t think you would do that after seven books Anyway, carry on I still love you This book was AMAZING The adventure was the most deadly one yet And we got to see all the prophesied seven demi gods on screen I LOVED THAT OVERVIEW Annabeth, Jason, Piper and Leo reach Camp Jupiter with their warship, Argo II, to tell the roman demi gods that they have to forget their animosity and team up with them to defeat Gaea But things don t go as expected Leo, in the influence of Gaea, fires at them Now the romans think it is the trick that greeks want to destroy Camp Jupiter All the seven demi gods, Percy, Annabeth, Jason, Piper, Hazel, Frank and Leo escape with Argo II and go to the ancient land of Rome to stop gaints from awakening Gaea.But that s not enough Nico is also missing They have to find him too.That s not enough again Annabeth, on her mother s orders, have to follow the Mark of Athena which will lead to a thing which can help them to defeat giants When he and Annabeth started dating, his mother had drummed it into his head It s good manners to walk your date to the door If that was true, it had to be good manners to walk her to the start of her epic solo death quest RANDOM THOUGHTS Spoilers Ahead Cover was very confusing at first I thought why Jason and Percy seem to fight to death But it turned out to be a trick of Gaea In Son of Naptune, I thought Hazel could be able to kill Alcyoneus because Arion, horse and a god, had hit him before But Uncle Rick explained it much better here Great I liked Annabeth s quest Previous two books don t have much of her role But this book is solely for her Percy and Annabeth are sooo amazing together Sometimes Percy gets selfish about Annabeth and forgets about the quest These are very hard times for him for it s his fatal flaw He is too loyal to his friends that he doesn t care about the world as long as his friends are alright I liked how he overcomes his feelings and understands that the quest is important Percy and Jason FOUGHT They were possessed by spirits of Gaea What an amazing scene that was Water and Electricity Wow Both are my favourite Narcissus He was soo obsessed with his beautiful face that he broke so many hearts He didn t care about anybody So Nemesis made him fall in love with his own reflection Wow I enjoyed his scenes Especially the way Leo stole his mirror was funny At a point Narcissus couldn t find words to speak, to threaten Leo for stealing his mirror This really shows he rarely speaks because he always stares at his own reflection A point well made, Uncle Rick Also in a scene he says WE all love ME Hahahaha We get to know a child of Medusa An amazing thing I don t remember his name but his father is Poseidon Hehehe Percy doesn t have normal siblings He is a pirate and tries to kidnap Percy and Annabeth But he has to run away after Percy defeats him But he doesn t show his face Always putting the mask I am curious why His mother could turn living things into stone by looking in their eyes I wonder what he can do Doors of Death I was thinking that there are many doors But it turns to be just two One in the Greece and another in the most expected place but I couldn t see that, Tartarus Wow Now Percy and Annabeth have fallen into Tartarus Whoa The worst thing that could have happened to them I didn t believe that Overall, an amazing book The best so far But I think THE BEST in series would be the next one Can t wait to start it.September 30, 2017
