All around the Romans, charolsten bay erupted like a San Francisco fount ion putting on a show. The Romans washed out to the sea. Percy stood on the deck, holding Annabeth's dagger.
"You dropped this."
"Save your selves!" Percy warned. "It's too late for us!"
Then he gasped and pointed to the spot where Frank was hiding. "Oh, no, Frank is turning into a crazy Dolphin!"
"I said," Percy repeated. "Frank is turning into a crazy dolphin!"
Frank stumbled out of no where, making a big show of grabbing his throat. "Oh, no," he said like he was reading from a TelePrompTer. "I am Turning into a crazy Dolphin."
He bed an to Chang, his nose enlarging into a snout, his skin becoming sleek and grey. He fell over on the deck as a dolphin. His tale flapping against the floor boards.
Frank advert end his eyes as if the sight of them together might burn him.
"Every one thinks you've been kidnapped," he said. "We've been scouring the ship. When Coach Hedge finds out--oh, gods, you've been here all night?"
"Frank!" Annabeth's ears were as red as strawberries. "We just came down here to talk. We fell asleep, accidentally. That's it."
"Kissed a couple of times." Percy said.
Annabeth glared at him. " Not helping!"
"Uh, were supposed to meet for breakfast. Would you mind explaining what you did--I mean, didn't do? I mean...I really don't want that faun--I mean satyr-- to kill me."
"That is exactly how people beat Chinese handcuffs. They turn into iguanas." -Leo
"On the bright side," Percy said, "both Jason and I outrank you, Octavian, so we can both tell you to shut up." *Jason and Percy then proceed to high five each other*
Percy: Wait, we're sitting on (glass) doors?
Annabeth: Don't worry. Only Leo and I know how to control it. It won't open. Probably.
"You've been guarding this statue since the ancient times," Annabeth guessed. "But it doesn't belong here. I'm taking it back."
"Ha," Arachne said.
Even Annabeth had to admit her threat sounded ridiculous. How could one girl in a Bubble Wrap ankle cast remove this statue from its underground chamber?
"I'm afraid you'll have to defeat me first, my sweet," Arachne said. "And alas, that is impossible."
SummaryAdd a Summary
The Heroes Of Olympus The Mark Of Athena By Rick Riordan is about closing the doors of death in order to save the demigod's camps camp half blood and camp Jupiter ,both a place for demigods. they are opposite counterparts of each other. one is the Roman way and the other way Greek. They must stop Earth mother Gaea's forces from entering into the human world. but seven demigods must work together. but there are only six. who is the seventh one? the prophecy will still remain a mystery
Jason,piper,Leo,Percy, hazel,frank ,and annabeth have to find the doors of death,save Nico,and annabeth has to find the lost statue of Athena.
Greek and roman demigods are sent on a mission to stop Gaea from waking up. Two different myths combined together
These demigods are sent on a quest to stop Gea's awakening and save this statues. Romans and Greek Demigods must team up!!!
After their perilous adventures, Annabeth, Jason, Leo, and Piper arive to the Roman camp. After they reunite with Percy, the prophecy of 7 have been exiled by some magic causing a slip up of Leo. They now go on, yes, another quest to find the Mark of Athena, a symbol of the wisdom goddess that has potential to reunite the camps together. But there is a catch, Annabeth must do this alone, as said by the prophecy. Can Annabeth alone save the camps, split by grief and accusations?
Jason, Annabeth, Leo and Piper finally meet Hazel, Frank and Percy. Together, they have to complete the prophecy of 7....this book is absolutely amazing, because of all the greek mythology that you could learn from it, and the fact that all the characters seem so real.
So basically, the go to rome but accidentally blow it up so they leave, then they Meet nemisis and trick narcissus then they go to kansas meet bacchus and jason and percy try to kill each other, then they meet porkey and kate actually phrcys and keto...
There is a little bit of fighting but it comes at apropriate times and the fighting actually makes it more exciting. I love the ending because Annabeth and Percy are going to have to work together except I hate how they leave you hanging at the end.
IGNORE THE PEOPLE WHO TRY TO SUCK YOU INTO THINKING THAT THIS BOOK HAS LOTS OF FIGHTING. .
Sexual Content: Percy and Annabeth kiss, so do Jason and Piper. Frank, Leo, and Hazel are a sort of romantic triangle.
Frightening or Intense Scenes: I thought for a second' that in the fight scene Percy Jackson might actually lose!!!! Too addicted!!! I really can't wait until The House Of Hades Comes out!!!
Violence: perfect happiness and peacefulness throughout the whole book monsters having tea parties and helping old grannies cross the road. I know right very bloody and horrifying
Other: You may be permanently blinded by the supreme awesomeness of this book
