O certain characters for like 50 pages at a time Like one character will be about to fall off a cliff and it ll be like TROLOLO time to go talk about another character for 100 pagesSo sometimes I would be impatiently waiting to hear about what was going on with a certain character and I wouldn t get to know forever and ver But other than that it wasn t too painfulAnyway as for the character development in this book it was mostly awesomeI say mostly because some of the characters became a lot likable than others Towards the A Vineyard Christmas end I wasn t that crazy about Jason or Piper I didn t like Jason very much in The Lost Hero and I wasxpecting him to become a compelling character but nah I still feel like he s pretty boring in comparison to the others He just doesn t have much of a personality plus he s magically kickass and awesome and perfect at Een Bijzondere Vorm Van Osteosclerose everything So he s just not all that interesting to me Piper is slightly better and I liked her for the most part in The Lost Hero but in The Mark of Athena I kind of got impatient whenever the story was focused on her Maybe it was just that I don t like her as much as most of the other characters I don t hate her but I don t love herither I think she s kind of a damsel in distress and just meh I m not a huge fanBut other than those two I found the character growth in The Mark of Athena to be xcellentFirst of all it s great to see how much Percy and Annabeth have matured over the course of all the books I almost got a little teary yed from nostalgia a few times I kind of grew up with these books in a way throughout my teenage years anyway That is I was around 12 when the first book came out and they were 12 in the first book and very year when the next book came out I would have aged another year just like they had Well and now they re stuck at 16 and I m 20 but STILL I ve had these books in my life for uite a long time now and it just means a lot to me to see them so grown up I mean Percy used to be so clueless and had no idea what he was doing 99% of the time And now he s like wicked badass but he still stresses out about trying to save the world and crap and ugggh And Annabeth used to be kind of mean and also got herself into trouble by having too much pride and yada yada and ven though she s still super brave and kickass and all she s open and humbled and EEEP it s just fantasticAnd see in a lot of books where two characters officially get together the author tends to screw it up by a making their relationship too damn perfect or b making Hot Shot (North Ridge Book 3) everything go to heck and have something ridiculous happen like they break up again or whatever But no not our dear Rick Riordan Yes Percy and Annabeth do get a lot of time together in this book and it s really sweet But Riordan doesn t overkill it For a lot of the book Percy and Annabeth are off on separate uests doing what they need to do As much as they care aboutach other they both also realize that they have a duty to fulfill and that s what s most importantWhat I also love is that Annabeth doesn t depend on Percy to protect her or any crap like that And also Percy recognizes that Annabeth can take care of herself Even when she has to go on her uest alone and could possibly die Percy still lets her go not that he doesn t want to help her but because he knows she needs to do it and that she s strong Math Basics 6 enough to succeed I mean can we all just stop and appreciate this for a second DO YOU KNOW HOW RARE THIS IS IN YA BOOKS DO YOU Seriously they re like the best fictional couple EVER GAHHHH In addition Annabeth is just so awesome and courageous in this book I felt like she finally got the spotlight she deserved after so many books and Riordan really gives her a time to shine and she makes the most of it I mean dang she has to go on this crazy uest by herself and face one of her worst fears view spoilerARACHNE AAHHHH hide spoiler WHAT KIND OF AN ENDING WAS THAT HUH WHERE WAS THE HAPPY ENDING Oh my God Percy and Annabeth why why why why whyI. Nabeth sua figlia una terribile missione «Segui il marchio di Atena Vendicami»Percy si ricorderà dei suoi vecchi amici o sarà passato dalla parte dei Romani Il gruppo di semidei dovrà scoprirlo in un viaggio per terra per mare alla volta della splendida terribile Rom.

My pre review and think how can I write this review What should I include what should I put Smokin' Hot emphasis on I would simply just stare at my laptop s screen until my mom called me down for dinnerI wish I could write this review to My favorite book in this series so far Full review postedPain my true and loyal friend welcome back First off Uncle Rick are you okay Who hurt you that made you channel your feelings into thending of this bookThis isn t gonna be much of a review rather than just a spoilery screaming session but don t worry my peeps im gonna break out the spoiler tags you re safe Now let me tell you kids THE AMOUNT OF PERCABETH IN THIS BOOK WILL GIVE YOU LIFE You know when your ship becomes canon and you basically just want the Placing Memory entire book to be consumed by that ship but author aka rick riordan clearly doesn t care and so he creates a plot or something totally unnecessary And then smashes your heart into little pieces with that unnecessary plot kidding I loved the plot so much and how mythology is so thoroughly incorpora OH GOD OH MAN OH GOD OH MANI just I can tven I can t Well Good job Rick Riordan You have written another glorious book Congrats I salute you But YOU ARE ALSO A HUGE TROLL AND YOU ARE STOMPING ALL OVER MY FUCKING HEART AND THAT ENDING WAS SO SAD AND BEAUTIFUL AND HOW AM I SUPPOSED TO WAIT A YEAR FOR THE NEXT ONE HOWWWWWW But okay okay Let s start at the very beginning A very good place to staaaartIn his usual trollish fashion Riordan left the previous book in the series The Son of Neptune just as Annabeth Piper Jason and Leo were about to fly into Camp Jupiter AND PERCY AND ANNABETH WERE ABOUT TO BE REUNITED AT LAAAST And then it was like THE END And we all threw the book across the room am I rightSo The Mark of Athena starts out Lasombra exactly where the last book left off Annabeth co are flying towards Camp Jupiter where Percy co are waiting for themWe finally FINALLY get the Percabeth reunion we ve all been waiting for After two whole books and like 15 pages Percy and Annabeth finally seeach other again and they kiss and then Annabeth like judo flips Percy and tells him never to leave her again and AWWWW I CAN T HANDLE ALL MY FEELSSo yeah after waiting like 1000 pages it finally happened and it was totally worth the wait It was perfectBut of course since this is a Rick Riordan book nothing stays perfect And after not too long there s a little mishap in which things xplode and well there s a bit of a misunderstanding And let s just say Percy Annabeth Leo Piper Jason Frank and Hazel all have to leave straightaway and also they might have accidentally turned Camp Half Blood and Camp Jupiter against ach other In typical Riordan style there s a main plot in the book but it s also made up of a lot of little mini adventures in which the characters have to go on a bunch of different uests and of course face a wide variety of crazy monsters and gods and all that jazz And all of it is leading up to Annabeth taking one uest on her own and fulfilling a prophecy that has some rather ominous implications Don t all propheciesThis was a long book and it took me uite a while to read However I thought that as usual Riordan does a good job keeping the plot moving from one point to the next and Wanton Nights each little uest is almost like its own little story so there s no room for getting boredProbably the most daunting task in this book was having to juggle all the characters Now that the two groups from the previous books have joined together that makes seven major characters to keep track ofYikesBut Riordan handles this uite well He does a good job payingual attention to all the major characters and having them all interact with While My Soldier Serves each other in one way or another The huge group tends to branch off in pairs or groups of three or so as they go off on their various uests so that makes it a bitasier to keep track of veryoneThe only thing that gets a tad annoying about this is that sometimes you won t know what happens Reata da Leo cerca di raggiungere il Campo Giove insieme a Jason Piper Certo il natante che ospita a bordo un drago di bronzo sputafiamme non ha un'aria amichevole i Romani capiranno che la loro è una missione di pace E la pace uanto durerà Atena infatti ha affidato ad An.
