The Mark of Athena

The Heroes Of Olympus Book 3

By Rick Riordan



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.

GIANT'S BANE STANDS GOLD AND PALE,

WON WITH PAIN FROM A WOVEN JAIL.

No books have influenced my life as much as these books have. The Percy Jackson and the Olympians and The Heroes of Olympus books have taught me so much about friendship, love, loyalty, and believing in your own strength. The Mark of Athena exemplifies these traits even more so than the others.


With a changing point of view in every chapter, I can see everything from several different perspectives. I can relate to each character on a deeper level because I can see how it affects them when reading from their point of view, but when reading another point of view, I can see how that same character holds themselves together and remains strong to encourage the others to keep going.


The heroes themselves are just ordinary kids my age. They deal with the same struggles that I deal with everyday. They would not be the kids that would be considered "popular" in the real world. But they become the world's greatest heroes anyway, because of their inner strength and the friendship between them. This concept helps me in my own everyday life because no matter what situation I am in I can relate to one of these seven characters and find the strength to overcome the obstacles and keep going. Knowing that one day, I can become a hero because of what I am inside, just like they did.
