Just when Annabeth Chase is about to be reunited with Percy Jackson- after six months of being apart- it looks like Camp Jupiter is preparing for war. As Annabeth and her friends, Jason Grace, Piper McLean, and Leo Valdez fly in with the Argo II, she can't blame the Roman demigods for thinking the ship is a Greek weapon. With its steaming bronze dragon figurehead, Leo's fantastical creation doesn't reassure the Romans that the visitors from Camp Half-Blood come in peace.

And that's only one of her worries. In her pocket, Annabeth carries a gift from her mother- Athena that came with an unnerving command: Follow the Mark of Athena. Avenge me.
