Mark of Athena (Cover) – Rick Riordan

U mad bros?OMG.

Oh. My. GOD.

IT’S OUT IT’S OUT IT’S OUT!!!!!

I’m leaving it big so that you can see it and all, since most sites have it tiny.

Anyway. LOOK AT IT!!!!!

Ok, to the review.

There’s an owl in the background (the mark of athena), and Jason and Percy are obviously having some epic battle of lightning vs. water and it’s all epic and stuff. Percy is on Blackjack? No idea which horse Jason has.

AND CAN I JUST SAY I LOVE IT SO MUCH

Why are they fighting? Please leave suggestions, because I have no idea and I really want to know.

Also, EXTRACT.

So Rick Riordan read out some of the first chapter at his events promoting the last Kane Chronicles book (A series I still need to read), and it ended BEFORE ANNABETH MET PERCY. But now there’s a new one that I think is the entire chapter.

So, in this extract (oh, spoilers) Annabeth sees his face. For like a second. And that’s enough to make me happy for today. I still need the book as badly as before, but this makes up for it a bit.

For those of you who can’t find where to read it, here’s a link.

I’m really hoping this means Annabeth is one of the seven. But I’m really scared that she isn’t. Please, please, please be one of the seven.

Oh, and, for those of you who haven’t seen it, here’s the summary.

Summary

“In The Son of Neptune, Percy, Hazel, and Frank met in Camp Jupiter, the Roman equivalent of Camp Halfblood, and traveled to the land beyond the gods to complete a dangerous quest. The third book in the Heroes of Olympus series will unite them with Jason, Piper, and Leo. But they number only six—who will complete the Prophecy of Seven?

The Greek and Roman demigods will have to cooperate in order to defeat the giants released by the Earth Mother, Gaea. Then they will have to sail together to the ancient land—Greece itself—to find the Doors of Death. What exactly are the Doors of Death? Much of the prophesy remains a mystery…

With old friends and new friends joining forces, a marvelous ship, fearsome foes, and an exotic setting, The Mark of Athena promises to be another unforgettable adventure by master storyteller Rick Riordan.”

See, I’m pretty sure it’s going to be someone new that joins the seven, BUT I WANT IT TO BE ANNABETH. It has to be Annabeth. Please make it Annabeth.

Mark of Athena seems like it’s going to be awesome. It’s Rick Riordan, I wouldn’t expect any less of him. No, not awesome. EPIC.

Hi!

Welcome to the first ever post on this blog. That’s right, you may be witnessing history right now, and you didn’t even realise it.

So nice to meet you.

This blog will revolve around books. Definitely. Probably. Maybe.

It’s still a work in progress, so we’re not really sure yet, but hopefully it will be awesome. We will review books, and maybe freak out every so often when a new title is released or movie adaptation has been announced.

Now, If you’re wondering, “Sure, that sounds cool, but do they have the same book taste as me…” Then here’s what you need to know. These are books we consider as awesome (note that this was AGES ago, and for a more updated list, go to Top Tens!)

  • Chaos Walking series – Patrick Ness
  • The Maze Runner series – James Dashner
  • Rot and Ruin series – Jonathan Maberry
  • Unwind, Skinjacker trilogy and Bruiser – Neal Shusterman
  • Percy Jackson & The Olympians (and Heroes of Olympus) – Rick Riordan
  • Gone series – Michael Grant
  • Noughts and Crosses – Malorie Blackman

So leave if you want. If you hate every single book up there and cannot stand reading about how amazing they are, you can go. If the idea of reading about books bores the hell out of you, then just click out. Shut down your computer if you want, and go make a BLT with extra bacon. But if one of those sparked your interest, stay. If you want to read about people talking about books, then stay. Click that little button that says follow, and we’ll keep you posted.

And keep smiling 😀
