"Waiting On" Wednesday (33): The Mark of Athena

"Waiting On" Wednesday... is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

This week I'm excitedly waiting on....

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.

Narrated by four different demigods, The Mark of Athena is an unforgettable journey across land and sea to Rome, where important discoveries, surprising sacrifices, and unspeakable horrors await. Climb aboard the Argo II, if you dare.

I am in love with this series! Rick Riordan is a masterful storyteller and his MG books have become some of my all time favorite. I'm so excited to see Annabeth and Percy reunited and cannot wait to find out where this story goes next. Plus, it releases just in time for my birthday!

What are you waiting on this week?

GREAT pick, I'm dying to continue the Heroes of Olympus story! I was really thinking nothing of Rick Riordan's could top Percy Jackson, but this one is definitely giving it a run for its money - I love the blend of Greek and Roman mythology, and I'm so curious what's going to happen with Annabeth! And of course, I want Percy and Annabeth to reunite already haha.
