"Waiting on" Wednesday: The Mark of Athena by Rick Riordan

"Waiting on" Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Jill over at Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that we're super excited about. This week, my pick is:

The Mark of Athena
Heroes of Olympus #3
By: Rick Riordan
Publication Date: October 2, 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. (from Barnes & Noble)

I have loved every single book I have read by Rick Riordan, especially the Percy Jackson series. I was so happy when I learned he was planning a spin off series. They have been just as amazing as the original series & I am anxious to see what happens to these demigods next! 

That's my 'waiting on', what's yours?
