Teaser Tuesday: The Mark of Athena by: Rick Riordan

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:

Grab your current read
Open to a random page
Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

""Yes," she said carefully. "It's on the Tiber River. I think I can find it, but I should--" "Take me along," Percy finished. "Yeah, you're right." Annabeth glared daggers at him. "That's not--" "Safe," he supplied. "One demigod walking through Rome alone. I'll go with you as far as the Tiber. We can use that letter of introduction, hopefully meet the river god Tiberinus. Maybe he can give you some help or advice. Then you can go on alone from there." They had a silent staring contest, but Percy didn't back down. When he and Annabeth started dating, his mother had drummed it into his head: It's good manners to walk your date to the door. If that was true, it had to be good manners to walk her to the start of her epic solo death quest."

This is way over the two sentence limit, but I couldn't help myself. I just really liked this moment between Percy and Annabeth for some reason.

Share the link to your TT in the comments, or if you don't have a blog just share your teaser there too and join in the fun!


  1. I'm SO glad you didn't pay attention to that two-sentence limit because that was awesome! And yes, I would think that would count as good manners also. So cute! Awesome pick, Wifey *hugs*

  2. Nice tease. Glad you didn't cut it short. As you know, I'm always over the 2-sentence limit. Some teasers just can't be shortened.
    Happy Tuesday :)
