Review:

Let me start by saying I enjoyed this book almost as much – but not quite – as the others so far. I like the characters, the mythos, Riordan’s skill to depict the eons and culture of the young characters. I loved that the new series (The Heroes of Olympus) brought back favorite characters and the knowledge of the demigod world while still keeping his material fresh with new characters and the introduction of the Roman camp and demigods.

In The Lost Hero, I loved having the narrative voice switch from character to character – it made a pleasant change from the 1st series and gave understanding of more than one character. Riordan repeated this trick in The Son of Neptune, and while it still worked, I never developed the connection with Hazel and Frank that I had for Jason, Piper and Leo. I understood that for me, it was because Percy’s narrative voice was conversant and outshined the others. I couldn’t hooked on to Hazel and Frank because I just wanted to go back to Percy’s perspective. So, while I’ve revel in the varying narrative voice, which I reflect is one of the ways Riordan is differentiating the 2nd series from the 1st, it presents some challenges. And for me, using the different perspectives was a challenge that didn’t work as efficiently in Mark of Athena.

As hinted at in Son of Neptune, Mark of Athena brings together all 7 demigods. So I probable to read chapters from all 7s perspective. That’s not the case. There are only 4 narrative voices, and I found it off-putting from the story to keep doubting when/if I was going to get the other viewpoint. I’m 1st to admit that having 7 different narrative voices would probably have been worse. That probably would have been too distracted and cracked. So even though I was sidetracked by the “omitted” voices, I’m willing to accept this was perhaps Riordan’s best preference.

In every previous book, Riordan has pleasingly settled a quest within the context of the multiple-book story curve. The quest is complete and everyone’s together at the end of the book enjoying some well-earned rest and recuperation. That’s not fairly the case in this book. An objective has been successfully completed, yes, but it’s certainly a parting from the other books in that it’s more of a “foreword” to what will come next. The end feels more like a deadlock than a carnival. Think Empire raids back, or even the end of Tolkien’s communion of the Ring.
