…seven half-bloods searching.
Seven half bloods shall answer the call…
In another Great Prophesy, seven teenagers are thrown together, despite rivalries, in order to close the Doors of Death. Greek and Roman mythology collide and only these seven will be able to accomplish the goal. His sword, Riptide, can be disguised as a pen and appears in his pocket whenever he loses it.
Percy Jackson, son of the Greek sea god Poseidon, is called the “glue” that will hold the group together. He can control water and talk to horses, thanks to his father.

Although she may not have any special powers, Annabeth uses her wits and intelligence to escape sticky situations. Her mother gave her a baseball cap that turns her invisible, but recently hasn’t been working.
Leo Valdez, son of the Greek god Hephaestus, feels like the outcast of the group. He can summon fire with a snap of his fingers and fix any machinery. His father gave him a magical tool let that can hold anything and everything inside.
Piper McLean is the daughter of the Greek goddess Aphrodite. She has a rapier that shows scenes of the future, and so far they have never been wrong.
Hazel Levesque is the daughter of the Roman god (Hades). She can rise precious gems and stones from the ground. Every now and then, she has a flashbacks of her past–something she cannot remember,

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 figurehead, 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 command: Follow the Mark of Athena. Avenge me. Annabeth already feels weighed down by that prophesy 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…
