Publisher's Summary

At the conclusion of The Mark of Athena, Annabeth and Percy tumble into a pit leading straight to the Underworld. The other five demigods have to put aside their grief and follow Percy's instructions to find the mortal side of the Doors of Death. If they can fight their way through the Gaea's forces, and Percy and Annabeth can survive the House of Hades, then the Seven will be able to seal the Doors from both sides and prevent the giants from raising Gaea. But, Leo wonders, if the Doors are sealed, how will Percy and Annabeth be able to escape?
They have no choice. If the demigods don't succeed, Gaea's armies will never die. They have no time. In about a month, the Romans will march on Camp Half-Blood. The stakes are higher than ever in this adventure that dives into the depths of Tartarus.

I really HATE it when narrators are switched

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

This narrator was fine for the Luke story, but be just hasn't been able to pull off the longer, and varied voices of this book. I would re buy the book for Swanson reading it.

I'd rather have waited a couple of weeks to have maintained the narration.

What didn’t you like about Nick Chamian’s performance?

He doesn't have the amount of voices needed. His female voice sounds like a man trying to speak with a girls voice. It's just bad. I liked his reading of the Demi god diaries, so I don't think he's a bad reader, he's just not a good fit for this book

Any additional comments?

Please stop switching readers in a series that maintains the same narration. It's very distracting from my enjoyment.

New Narrartor is Horrible

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Although I am a huge fan of the story, this new narrator is horrible. He sounds stiff and robotic, and he pauses way too long for commas, giving a stilted quality to the audiobook. Basically, I consider buying this audiobook a waste of money and am going to just download the ebook and read it instead.

Would you be willing to try another one of Nick Chamian’s performances?

No, I am completely unwilling to try this narrator again. I have been looking forward to this for months, and he really ruined it. It was painful to listen to, like watching a kindergarten rendition of Swan Lake. He's reading a part where one of the main characters has "never been happier," but he has no emotion at all. It is how I would imagine a Vulcan would narrate an audiobook.

Any additional comments?

I am already invested in the series, and the story itself is great. But if I were new to the Heroes of Olympus series, based on the first chapter of this book, I wouldn't even bother. I even skipped ahead to several points in the book to see if the performance got better, but it never does. Every pause is too long, and the characters' experiences, joys and struggles are cheapened by the colorlessness of the narration.
