Nathan Gridley The setting The book The Mark of Athena takes place all over the world. Some of the main places are The Argo II, a warship that was created by Leo Valdez, and Rome. The Mark of Athena is in present time. Characters Percy Jackson Percy is a 16 year old demigod. In this series his memory is erased by the goddess Juno and he is placed in a Roman camp. He is the son of Poseidon, who is also known as Neptune by the Romans. Percy has sea-green eyes and dark black hair. Just like most other demigods, he is dyslexic and has ADHD. He is very loyal, humorous, and smart. Also, he can sometimes be very sarcastic and short tempered. Annabeth and Percy are in a relationship. Annabeth Chase Annabeth is a 16 year old demigod. She is the daughter of Athena. Her features include blonde hair and gray eyes. Also, she is tall, fit, and athletic. Annabeth is very intelligent, prideful, and somewhat scary according to Leo. Most of all she is a natural leader. Percy and Annabeth are in a relationship. Jason Grace Jason is a roman demigod who's father is Jupiter, or Zeus which is the name for Jupiter that is used by the Greeks. His memory was wiped by the goddess Juno, also known as Hera, and he was placed in a Greek camp. Jason has
blonde hair and blue eyes. He is very tall with a muscular build. Percy and Jason are very similar. For example, they are both very fair to other people and they are very loyal. Piper and Jason are in a relationship. Problem The problem in the story The Mark of Athena is that Nico di Angelo is captured and is going to die. Also, if they don't kill his kidnappers all of Rome is going to be destroyed. Detailed description of plot Leo Valdez Piper McLean Hazel Levesque Frank Zhang Nico di Angelo Climax Character Changes Conclusion Leo is a son of Hephaestus. He has curly dark brown hair, brown eyes, and pointed ears. He was told by Jason that he looked like a Latino elf. Leo loves to tell jokes. It doesn't matter if they are funny of not. Leo is pretty much the Joker in his group of friends. Piper is the daughter of Aphrodite. She has brown hair and eyes that change color. She is described as being very pretty. Piper is very caring towards her boyfriend Jason and can be extremely fierce when someone threatens him. Hazel is the daughter of Pluto, or Hades. She is outgoing, bright, and mature. She doesn't do things just because it is normal. Hazel has curly, brown hair and golden eyes. She died in the 1940's, but was brought back from the dead by her half brother Nico. Frank is the son of Mars. He is very clumsy and has a low self-esteem. He is part Asian and part Canadian. A babyish face with brown eyes and short black hair are some of the features he has. Also, he is very large in build. According to Hazel, he looks like a koala bear with muscles. I really liked this book. I had a blast reading it. Once I had started it I couldn't put it down. This book is great for both genders. Anyone who likes a story that is full of action will love this. Resolution This book starts off with Annabeth, Leo, Piper, and Jason getting ready to land the Argo ll at Camp Jupiter. At first everything goes well, but soon after their arrival Leo gets possessed by an Eidolon and starts firing the scorpion ballista at the Romans. Everyone makes it back to the warship with minor injuries. Percy, Hazel, and Frank have come aboard, too. Soon Leo snaps out of it and they go to Salt Lake, Utah so they can repair the ship. While there Leo meets Nemesis and she gives him a fortune cookie and tells him to use it when he really needed help. Opening the cookie comes with a price, though. While everyone was gone getting supplies Piper took out her knife, which has magical powers, and sees a man standing next to a road sign that said Topeka 32. When everyone came back she told them what she saw. They all decided they should go there. When they got there the found out that the man was Bacchus. He told them that the twins in the prophecy were Otis and Ephialtes and that they would probably find out what they were doing by asking Phorcys, Otis and Ephialtes unloyal brother. Phorcys ends up capturing Perc and Frank, but they escape. The climax is when Percy, Jason, and Piper arrive in Otis and Ephialtes's lair. When they get there they find Nico unguarded. As they approach Nico, two platforms lower from the ceiling.One of them was carrying Ephialtes and the other had Otis on it. The three launch themselves into battle, but since Otis and Ephialtes are giants it takes a demigod and a god fighting together to kill them. Just before they were about to get defeated Bacchus suddenly appears. He teleports everyone to a the Roman Colosseum and together they kill the giants. Nico is the son of Hades and is Hazel's half sister. He has black hair that is always messy, olive skin, and dark eyes. He almost always wears black. Author's Message The character that changed the most is Frank Zhang. By the end of the book he didn't have such a low self esteem and was confident in himself. The theme in this book is that when you work together nothing is impossible. The resolution in this book is when the god and the demigods worked together and killed the giants. Because of this, Rome was saved and everone was okay. While there they learn about Nico getting captured. Also, they find out that Rome is going to be destroyed if Nico's kidnappers don't get defeated. The seven kids travel to Rome. When they get there Annabeth leaves to go recover the lost Athena Parthenos. Hazel, Frank, and Leo go searching for the entrance for the twins lair while Percy, Jason, and Piper wait at the ship. Hazel, Frank and Leo get trapped and can't get back to the Argo ll. Since the three aren't back yet Percy, Jason, and Piper go to find them. While looking for them they stumble upon the giants lair. They enter the area when suddenly Otis and Ephialtes appear. Just when they are about to get defeated Bacchus appears and together they kill the giants. Bacchus then informs them where to go to save Annabeth. Just then the Argo ll appeared with Hazel, Frank, and Leo on board. Leo had used his fortune cookie to find out how to escape. They get there and recover the missing statue, but Percy and Annabeth fall down hole that goes all the way down to Tartarus. The book ends with the remaining five demigods planning on going to the doors of Tartarus and saving their friends. Prophecy Wisdom's daughter walks alone,The Mark of Athena burns through Rome.
Twins snuff out the angels breath,
Who holds the key to endless death.
Giants bane stands gold and pale,
Won through pain from a woven jail.
