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.

A terrible choice of narrator

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

Sticking with Joshua Swanson, who did a great job with all three previous books, or if impossible, Jesse Bernstein from the Percy Jackson books, or pretty much ANY other narrator.


How could the performance have been better?

By being in any sense a performance, this was flat and lifeless from the start and a very bad surprise as I preordered it without paying attention to whether they switched narrators...


You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

It is with all likelihood the continuation of a very enjoyable series, in written form or with a different narator.


Any additional comments?

Please, this is a best-seller series, DON'T ruin it with bad narration.
I would gladly buy this book if they released it with a better narrator, but this way, I will have to return it right now and pick up the ebook version instead.

9 year old cried about how bad audio is

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

My kids and I have been looking forward to this book for a year, they listen to the others all the time. My daughter was so excited to get the audio version today but that soon turned to tears on how bad the narration is. she asked to return it and read the book instead. Horrendous!


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

It is like listening to a dead fish, there is no life in his voice, he makes the book sounds bland and boring! Save yourself money and buy the book.


Any additional comments?

I wish this book could be returned, its audio ruins the whole story, we will be buying the book!
