The Mark of Athena by Rick Riordan
Once again, Riordan came through with a totally fantastic book. It carries on with the humor found in the other books in this series which I really enjoy. In this book, Annabeth must follow the Mark of Athena, a task which none of her other siblings were able to fulfill, resulting in their deaths. Nico is trapped and they have to save him before he dies, and the Greek and Roman contingents meet - and Gaea causes it to be contetious. Percy and Jason are both leaders - can they work together? Leo feels like a seventh wheel and Piper worries about her relationship with Jason. Lots of fighting, near misses, Gods, Goddesses and demigods and monsters abound in this action packed story.
