The Mark of Athena by Rick Riordan
Expected publication date: October 2nd, 2012
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.
Do I even need to explain why this is on my wishlist? We're talking about Rick Riordan's next book, the next book in the Heroes of Olympus series, a book about Greek and Roman gods, and you still don't know? I've been *dying* to get my hands on this book ever since I finished The Son of Neptune (which I of course read as quickly as I could, which means I've been waiting 9 months already and the wait isn't even over yet) and EGHRJEIHWIHREWRHHGFGDGFGG I need this book!
Also? That cover? John Rocco outdid himself. LOVE IT!
