Waiting on Wednesday: The Mark of Athena by Rick Riordan

Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill over at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.

This week’s can’t wait to read selection is
The Mark of Athena by Rick Riordan.
Publication Date: October 2nd 2012


The Mark of Athena - Hyperion Book CH
Annabeth is terrified. Just when she’s about to be reunited with Percy—after six months of being apart, thanks to Hera—it looks like Camp Jupiter is preparing for war. As Annabeth and her friends Jason, Piper, and Leo fly in on the Argo II, she can’t blame the Roman demigods for thinking the ship is a Greek weapon. With its steaming bronze dragon masthead, Leo’s fantastical creation doesn’t appear friendly. Annabeth hopes that the sight of their praetor Jason on deck will reassure the Romans that the visitors from Camp Half-Blood are coming in peace.

And that’s only one of her worries. In her pocket Annabeth carries a gift from her mother that came with an unnerving demand: Follow the Mark of Athena. Avenge me. Annabeth already feels weighed down by the prophecy that will send seven demigods on a quest to find—and close— the Doors of Death. What more does Athena want from her?

Annabeth’s biggest fear, though, is that Percy might have changed. What if he’s now attached to Roman ways? Does he still need his old friends? As the daughter of the goddess of war and wisdom, Annabeth knows she was born to be a leader, but never again does she want to be without Seaweed Brain by her side.
 
Synopsis from goodreads.com 

Rick Riordan. Do I need say more? Perhaps. The Mark of Athena is book three in the Heroes of Olympus series and it promises to be great! I've read and re-read The Lost Hero and The Son of Neptune several times since their publication. The first book was about Jason, the second about Percy and the third will be about Annabeth. I'm not her biggest fan, I have to say, but I'm sure that the book will be as spectacular as the first two.

What's on your waiting list this week? Leave us a comment.
