Book Review: The Mark of Athena

Title: The Mark of Athena
Author: Rick Riordan
Format: Paperback (Int'l Edition)
Rating: 4.5 / 5.0

Did I just finish reading this book? It only seemed like yesterday I was just reading The Son of Neptune and here I am now, waiting for the fourth installment.
Like the previous books, MoA had the combination of action, adventure, romance and humor. In my own opinion, this is the best book of the series, so far. We now have four different points of view from Annabeth, Percy, Piper and Leo, each of them going on a different adventure throughout the book. MoA started off exactly where SoN left and immediately kicked off the action and adventure until the very last page.

Although I was annoyed by some parts where there would be a dialogue and something interrupts it when it gets to the most important part. I just wish Mr. Riordan stops doing that now. Nevertheless, I still loved it.

I also loved how the ending was written. It was a cliffhanger, that doesn’t seem like a cliffhanger at all, but left me wanting the next book which makes it a cliffhanger, BAH! Go read it yourselves. Riordan doesn’t disappoint.
