The Heroes of Olympus #3: The Mark of Athena Cover & Chapter One!

The Heroes of Olympus #3: The Mark of Athena Cover & Chapter One!

The Mark of Athena

Read Chapter One

On his Blog: Myth & Mystery Rick Riordan says this, which is pretty exciting:

“What is the scene on the cover? Is that who you think it is, about to fight??  Can’t tell you, but yes, that is an actual scene from the book, and the meaning will be clear when you read it. 

Well, it’s finally October 2nd – I hope my copy comes in today! If you like to talk about the Heroes of Olympus; the characters, the book covers, the prophecy and who might date who, you might like looking at the comments that have accumulated so far about the first two books. Over 1700 for each of them!

After you finish The Mark of Athena, come back and tell us what you thought.

  1. @lily aphrodite? Whaat? And idk i think maybe they are under a spell of the mark of athena and thats what the owl is. Also its released october 2 in the U.S but idk other countries.

  2. I’M baaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaccccccccccccccccccccckkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkk sorry i’ve been sorta busy with school

  3. 1 month left!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  4. I honestly think that its Rick’s fault because the Son of Neptune had a lot more clues and had more ike new characters

  5. @Danny – maybe the conversation will get interesting again after the book actually comes out and people have a chance to read it.



    Also known as the goddess of revenge.   This is one lady you do NOT want to run into in a dark alley (or anywhere else, for that matter).
    What does SHE do?  This woman can shape-shift into any imposing figure you can imagine, if you’re her target.  Which you don’t want to be.  Ever.
    Noteworthy: Imposing as she is, Nemesis can be bargained with, as demigod Leo will learn…but at what cost?


  8. Well I’m back!!! I read the Demigod Diaries and it was AMAZING!!! Percy and Annabeth are so sweet as a couple. They HAVE to be together forever. So I’m assuming everyone already knows who the 7 are. I can’t wait for the Mark of Athena!!!!!!!!!!!! So I’ll probably not be back until when the book comes out. So good-bye to all of you. I still miss all of the original people like Son of Neptune and etc…

  9. Guys rick released a drawing of coach hedge and he said that Coach was going on the Argo II with themmm!

  10. i am like 100% sure it’s PERCY and jason fighting, but why????????????
    BTW i am dying to get the 3rd book!!!!!
    wish that rick can post chapter 2!!!! i mean come on, right people????


    did you guys get the Demigod Diaries yet? I haven't yet but i can't wait to read it!

  12. hey guys!! havent been on in awhile!!! got alot of dance goin on! everyday of the week cept wednesday!!

  13. @Danny well you have think of it like this no matter how much you don’t want to Zeus Hades and Poseidon are the three most powerful gods in existence so far if you put them in a fight against each other (one on one of course) it would literally go on forever because they are equally matched now their children only have a small amount of their parents power and Jason and Percy both have trained under both Lupa and Chiron so they r equally matched no matter where they are sorry but it’s true

  14. @dancer* i dont know if they’re going to do character reveals because i feel like all the important characters are already introduced. But if they are then it would probably be right before the Mark of Athena comes out, like the son of Neptune. And the only other date i know is when the Mark of Athena comes out, which is October 2nd

    @danny lol good answer.

    Does anyone know when the Demigod Diaries come out?

  15. Are none if the comments anyone sends showing up or is no one sending any comments?

  16. this is the description from a canadian bookseller:
    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 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.

  17. i havent been on in sooo long! and i fell guilty!! sorry guys ive been seriously busy, if someone would be polite enough to post and get me up to date on everything? new characters plit ect ect?? please 🙂

  18. @PJO naahh jason doesnt get exhausted with one strike. He can cause many but making a large bolt tires him out because of the strength of it and he has greek and roman training.

    Everyone needs to cut jason a break. Jason had no idea who he was or where he came frome in tLH until the end. How was he supposed to fight if he barely knew who he was. And if you say that percy had no memories, he drank the gorgon blood before battling any giants or the other threatening groups. Im sure that if jason had his memories he could fight better than he had.

  19. Percy Jackson Taught me you can die hero or live long enough to become the villain….

    Katniss Everdeen Taught me That All the world is a stage…

    Artemis fowl taught me things are not always as they seem….

    And the kanes taught me that Family is forever…

    Number 4 taught me United we stand…

  20. oh percy no contest jason been training longer but percy has ha sfar better use of his powers jason however is tired easily

  21. @Danny Here’s how I view their powers: Percy can control water and ice, can cause earthquakes, can heal himself, can talk to horses and he’s the best swordsman in Camp Half-Blood in 300 years. Now here’s all of the “powers” that Jason has: can float, can make one lightning bolt even though it exhausts him to no measure and is a pretty good swordsman. Now, tell me, of both those people, who do you think is going to win…!!!!!!!!!!!!!PEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEERRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  22. Duo date soon percy vs Jason
    Percy’s Attributes: Super stength Master swordsmen (Greatest in over 300 years)HydroKenesis
    (the ability to control water) Healing Factor (can heal bones and some poisons when near water) Water force has the ability to use his own energy to summon water for his whirlwind/Hurricane Attack Slight Cryokenesis (the Ability to control ice as seen in the SON)Celestial bronze sword (one of the strongest in history)telepathy with fish and horses demigod sense (ADHD)Somewhat Geokenesis the Ability to cause tremors and or Earthquakes and fire resistance that surpasses that of any other demigod except for leo

  23. Duo date Percy Vs jason
    Jason’s Attributes: Super strength (surpasses that of percy’s) Enhanced sword prowess As (much as i hate to say it Jason’s skils either match or Surpass that of percy’s) Aerokenesis ( acn control wind currents and tame venti) Electrokenesis can control thunder and lightting and create small storms)

  24. @lovey143 I LOVE KIM KARDASHIAN Also PJO is right
    some fans have 4-gotten that percy’s THE BEST and like i said earlier don’t get me wrong jason’s strong But PERCY’S THE STRONGEST THERE IS

  25. @pjo im fond of percy but i also really like jason and i dont understand why everyone hates him.

    Also if they made a movie with Aphrodite i think that Kim Kardashian should play her. You all might hate her but i think that it would be perfect…lol (:
