Teaser Tuesday: The Mark of Athena by Rick Riordan

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading.
To play along just do the following:
  • Grab your current read
  • Open to a random page
  • Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
  • BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
  • Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

The Mark of Athena by Rick Riordan.

The meeting was like a war council with donuts.

 "Hercules, huh?" Percy frowned. "That guy was like the Starbucks of Ancient Greece. Everywhere you turn - there he is."

I just finished this third book in the Heroes of Olympus series and it made me laugh out loud, cry with frustration, and smile with fondness at the characters. Luckily, there’s more to come and hopefully soon.
Seven demigods get on a warship, sail to ancient Rome, try to work together (that’s especially hard on the sons of Jupiter and Poseidon), face a lot of monsters and try not to get killed on their quest to keep the giants from awakening the earth goddess Gaea. You can see that there are some problems to be solved, especially on the working together part. ;) As with the first two books, I’ll definitely read it again.

What’s on your reading pile this week? Tease us in the comments.
