In my speculation before this book came out, Iwondered which, and how many, of the characters that would most likely be inMark of Athena would be used as narrators. From just flipping through the book, itlooks like Riordan rotated between four of the Seven as narrators.
The narratorthat intrigued me the most was Annabeth. We already knew she was going to be anarrator from the teaser chapter, and an important character from the name of 3. So I really enjoyed that part of the book.
Another thing that interested me is how much the characters know now. This isthe third book of the second Percy Jackson series, so by now readers would be fedup if the characters still didnt know what the deal was with all of the monstersthat attack them - and Riordan has evidently realized this. In this book, thecharacters know who the monsters are - they dont have to trick the monsters intoaccidentally revealing it. And they guess what the larger pictures are much morequickly, without having gods or helpful random characters drop extremelyrevealing hints or just spelling it out for them, like in earlier books.
The charactersare starting to connect the dots on their own now, though Riordan is able to dothis while still keeping us readers somewhat in the dark. Which is definitelydifferent and definitely interesting. Altogether, we can see the characters maturing and growing up. Though the booksthemselves are still strictly PG, older readers can still see whats going on throughundertones and subtle occurrences. A thirteen year old wouldnt really understandthe depth of Annabeth and Percys relationship, or how Leo, Frank, and Hazel workthrough their troubles - but older readers can appreciate those, and see how thisbook is actually more mature in these respects than books targeted to olderaudiences, which do turn this into teen angst and drama.
There is none of thathere - just responsible teens working their way calmly and openly through theiremotions. In my opinion, that is a much better way to approach those matters,and definitely sets a better example for the younger readers these books aretargeted to than some other books I can think of do.
For setting that example andtaking that approach, my respect for Riordan has increased exponentially. Of course, this book follows the usual blueprint of heroes running around fightingrandom monsters and villains that pop up out of the woodwork and culminates inan epic battle with the evil mastermind of the day, but it also follows the newtrend weve seen in the previous two Heroes of Olympus books of throwing in amonumental plot twist at the end of the book, similar to the discovery of Percy atthe Roman camp at the end of book 1 and the arrival of the Greek party in Festusat the end of book 2.
This plot twist, however, takes things to another levelentirely. I will say no more, except that because of this plot twist, I will have to atleast read the first few pages of the next book in the bookstore.
Which will more 4. The setup Riordan has craftedin this book just promises that the next one will be epic. I would also like to say a quick word about the setting. Yes, the book starts out atthe Roman camp moments after the previous one ends. Yes, the combined teamtakes a trip across the U. Butthis book does get to Rome, and I loved how Riordan managed to work in thesetting once the characters actually got there. He acknowledged how amazing thesetting he had chosen to use was, and incorporated it into his story far more thanhe had in any of his previous books.
Altogether, The Mark of Athena has a slightly different feel to than the previousbooks - certainly it is far more developed than The Lightening Thief, his firstcreation. Perhaps the appeal for Riordans books is gradually shifting to that of anolder audience, like in many series which extend this long, but I believe that is agood thing, since it acknowledges the fact that the original target audience hasaged considerably since the first book came out.
It helps to watch your heroes agewith you. In actuality, all of this is caused by the simple fact that Riordan is stilldeveloping as a writer, and I anticipate seeing how the next book in his seriesdisplays the - if gradual, then certainly present - metamorphosis of his writing.
Rick Riordan demonstrates his superb storytelling abilities once again in the thirdinstalment of the Heroes of Olympus series, The Mark of Athena. His books have plots that are the perfect blendof adventure, action, fantasy, mythology and romance, involving a cast of amazingcharacters with flaws, complexities and developments, and a prose that transitionsfrom seriousness to hilarity seamlessly — The Mark of Athena is an ideal example.
The Mark of Athena is the best book yet and although I complain way too muchthat time flies, I do hope that the next year does just that so I can have TheHouse of Hades in my hands already.
The Argo II lands in NewRome so that the Greeks can try to make peace with the Romans and purge anyhostility between the two so that they can ally together to fight and stop Gaia fromrising. But this does not happen due to some unforeseen events… Our league of 5. Having known Percy and Annabeth for the greatest amount of time from the PercyJackson and Olympians series you would think you know them as much as youknow yourself, however that is not the case after all in The Mark of Athena.
RickRiordan continues to make Percy and Annabeth interesting, adding newdimensions and maturity to their characters.
They just do not get repetitive. It was such a heart-rending moment — myheart was melted, then hardened, then pulverised into a million pieces.
On TwitterI tweeted: Iwould like to be her Percy, keeper of promises. Yes, the whole reason theygo to Rome is because Annabeth has to follow the mark of Athena and avenge hermother, but on this journey Percy, Jason, Hazel, Piper, Leo and Frank alsodiscover something new about themselves and each other — we as the reader alsolearn something new about each of the characters.
It was a great dynamic withinthe group to observe as were all the relationships. Jason shrugged. But right now, you need some rest.
Me too. He always knew when to bring the laughs to the party e.
Leo had this unsureness about the others — he was especiallyskeptical about Frank, because he just did not understand him as much as theothers did… as much as Hazel did. So there was a bit of caution and uneasinessbetween the two.
For me, I thought Leo used his jokes as a sort of defencemechanism against Frank or as a way of showing that he is an alright dude. Butthere is this awkwardness between them because Frank has a problem with fire,as we learned in The Son of Neptune.
Moving on… Frank I found was theintroverted and shy one of the bunch, evident in his relationship with Hazel butalso in his distance from Leo.
And then finally Piper, our daughter of Aphrodite,can really use that power of persuasion to do some good in the world — and sheproves that she really is as intelligent than what people usually thought of her,considering she is the daughter of Aphrodite and all… the daughter of a goddesswho would rather gossip over tea and cakes than discuss the war that ishappening. Coach Hedge is just so effingcool… and strange… and a total goat! The characterswere the best part of this story and were all relatable.
The House of Hades can you 7. I am currently reading Mark of Athena, by Rick Riordan. So far the chosen 7 fromthe prophecy are halfway through the journey, I am also halfway through thebook. What really confuses me is that so far, it doesnt have much to do with thetitle and in the books before it did, I wonder if there is a reason for that?
This bookrealates to me because, the 7 demigods face many dilemmas. Plus they are puttogether and had to become friends. I face alot of dilemmas in gymnastics and, Ihave moved alot so I never really made true friends and if I did I would leavethem the next year.
If I were to rate this book so far I would give it 3 and a halfstars.
I reccomend this book to people who like an adventure, a little, bit ofromance, and people who like to have a good laugh once in a while. I hope youread this book, the author is truly amazing. I know I cant wait to finish it. The book was great overall, although I was expecting some more actions. I wasntas impressed with this as with the previous installments. It felt like Rick Riordanwas saving all the goodies for the House of Hades and this is just a filler.
I washappy to see Percy and Annabeth reunited.
