Teen review: “The Mark of Athena” by Rick Riordan

“The Mark of Athena,” the third book in the Heroes of Olympus Series that follows up the Percy Jackson and the Olympians Series, is an exciting book where the Greeks finally come together for the first time in years. Seven heroes (Greek and Roman) must embark upon a journey to Rome starting their quest off to eventually stop Gaea, the Earth goddess who, unlike most depictions of Mother Earth, is mean and cruel and out to get the world. This book is the first one of the many Riordan books to have some chapters from Annabeth’s perspective, which I thoroughly enjoyed. The interesting thing that Rick Riordan did was instead of continuing on with the books from a first person perspective, which he did with the first series, he changed the perspective to third person. It didn’t occur to me until I went back and re-read a book from the original series. It completely changes the feeling of the books, but no matter what the perspective, they are still fabulous reads and worth your time!
