Mark of Athena by Rick Riordan

I bought Rick Riordan's book after school last Tuesday and finished all 574 pages in less than a week.  Talking about it with my stepdaughter, we realized that in some books we find ourselves skimming some scenes, but in this series no scene is wasted.

This book focuses on Annabeth's quest to avenge her mother while the seven demi-gods of the prophecy travel together to fulfill their destiny.  If you haven't read the first two books in the series, The Lost Hero and The Son of Neptune, I recommend you read those first.

Update: I would give this a blue ribbon, but it is hard to start a read aloud in the middle of the series.

  1. But what do you rank it? Blue? Red?

    1. I would give it a blue for read aloud potential except I think that students need to know the story lines for the first two books. I am thinking of a new category -- purple -- for books I would be willing to read aloud but they are mid-series books.
