The Making of a Graphic Novel
The novel has since been translated into many languages and released as a hardcover , e-book , audiobook and paperback. The novel is narrated in third-person , switching between the points of view of Annabeth, Percy, Piper, and Leo. The Mark of Athena received positive reviews from critics for its humor, characters, and mix of elements. Criticism was focused on its slow pace, action, and different perspectives. Annabeth, while having a talk with Camp Jupiter's praetor Reyna about the quest, reveals that in order to unite the Greek and Roman demigods against Gaea, they have to first retrieve the Athena Parthenos , a giant statue of Athena that was stolen by the Romans from the Greeks in ancient times and hidden somewhere in Rome. The statue can only be retrieved by the demigods of Athena through the help of the Mark of Athena, all of whom had died trying. However, an Eidolon sent by Gaea possesses Leo and forces him to fire a blast on the camp, inciting the paranoid augur , Octavian, to convince the Romans that the Greeks are a threat and have to be destroyed.
Just when she's about to be reunited with Percy—after six months of being apart, thanks to Hera—it looks like Camp Jupiter is preparing for war. With its steaming bronze dragon masthead, Leo's fantastical creation doesn't appear friendly. Annabeth hopes that the sight of their praetor Jason on deck will reassure the Romans that the visitors from Camp Half-Blood are coming in peace. And that's only one of her worries. In her pocket Annabeth carries a gift from her mother that came with an unnerving demand: Follow the Mark of Athena. Avenge me.
Annabeth felt as if someone had draped a cold washcloth across her neck. She heard that whispering laughter again, as if the presence had followed her from the ship. She looked up at the Argo II. Its massive bronze hull glittered in the sunlight. Part of her wanted to kidnap Percy right now, get on board and get out of here while they still could. She couldn't shake the feeling that something was about to go terribly wrong.
