As Annabeth and her friends Jason, Piper, and Leo fly in on the Argo II, she can’t blame the Roman demigods for thinking the ship is a Greek weapon. Annabeth hopes that the sight of their praetor Jason on deck will reassure the Romans that the visitors from Camp Half-Blood are.

He waswearing an SPQR banner like a giant bib. And the architecture…gods, the architecture—gilded In front of her, the demigods made way for a girl infull Roman armor and a purple cape.
Dark hair tumbledacross her shoulders. Her eyes were as black asobsidian. Jason had described her well. Even without that,Annabeth would have singled her out as the leader. Medals decorated her armor.
She carried herself withsuch confidence the other demigods backed away andaverted their gaze. Annabeth recognized something else in her face, too—in the hard set of her mouth and the deliberate wayshe raised her chin like she was ready to accept anychallenge. Annabeth knew that expression. She saw it everytime she looked in a mirror. The two girls considered each other. The Romans Percy smiled at her—that sarcastic, troublemakersmile that had annoyed her for years but eventually hadbecome endearing.
His sea-green eyes were asgorgeous as she remembered. He looked even better than he had six monthsago—tanner and taller, leaner and more muscular.
Annabeth was too stunned to move. She felt that ifshe got any closer to him, all the molecules in her bodymight combust. The praetor Reyna straightened. With apparentreluctance, she turned toward Jason.
Percy rushed toward her at the same time. The crowdtensed. Percy threw his arms around her. They kissed, andfor a moment nothing else mattered. Percy smelled of ocean air. His lips were salty. Seaweed Brain, she thought giddily. Percy pulled away and studied her face. He slammed into the stone pavement. Romans cried out. Stand down!
She pushedher forearm against his throat. Romans thought. Suddenly the lump ofheated emotions melted inside Annabeth. Shewanted to kiss him again so badly, but she managed torestrain herself. Jason cleared his throat.
Or an site?
The burly Asian guy withthe buzz cut was about fifteen. He was cute in a sort ofoversized-cuddly-panda-bear way. The girl wasyounger, maybe thirteen, with amber eyes andchocolate skin and long curly hair. Her cavalry helmetwas tucked under her arm. Annabeth could tell from their body language thatthey felt close to Percy. She fought down a twinge of jealousy. Wasit possible Percy and this girl…no. Annabethhad spent her whole life learning to read people.
It wasa survival skill. Meanwhile, Reyna was giving orders to her officers. Dakota, alert thespirits in the kitchen. Tell them to prepare a welcomefeast. As augur, you should burn an offering to thankthe gods for bringing Jason back to us safely. Octavian shot Percy a lookof absolute loathing. Then he gave Annabeth asuspicious once-over and stalked away.
She heard that whisperinglaughter again, as if the presence had followed her fromthe ship. She looked up at the Argo II. Its massive bronze hullglittered in the sunlight. Part of her wanted to kidnapPercy right now, climb on board, and get out of here And there was no way shewould ever risk losing Percy again.
She turned to Jason, andAnnabeth thought there was a hungry sort of gleam inher eyes. Sets of couches and low tables were carted into the Romanslounged in groups of ten or twenty, talking and laughingwhile wind spirits—aurae—swirled overhead, bringingan endless assortment of pizzas, sandwiches, chips,cold drinks, and fresh-baked cookies.
Drifting throughthe crowd were purple ghosts—Lares—in togas andlegionnaire armor. Around the edges of the feast, satyrs no, fauns, Annabeth thought trotted from table totable, panhandling for food and spare change.
In thenearby fields, the war elephant frolicked with Mrs. The whole scene was so familiar yet so completelyalien that it gave Annabeth vertigo. All she wanted to do was be with Percy—preferablyalone.
She knew she would have to wait. If their questwas going to succeed, they needed these Romans,which meant getting to know them and building somegoodwill.
Reyna and a few of her officers including the blondkid Octavian, freshly back from burning a teddy bearfor the gods sat with Annabeth and her crew. Percy Just you and me. The place isincredible. Just you and mewas exactly what she wanted. Instead, resentmentswelled in her throat. How could Percy talk soenthusiastically about this place? What about CampHalf-Blood—their camp, their home? At Camp Half-Blood, demigods got bead necklaces to commemorateyears of training.
Here, the Romans burned a tattoo intoyour flesh, as if to say: You belong to us.
She swallowed back some biting comments. After introductions all around, the Romans and Now, be quiet and let Jason finish. She noticedReyna looking back and forth between Jason andPiper, her brow creased, as if just beginning to realizethe two of them were a couple. Porphyrion, the big leader dude He plans onawakening Gaea and destroying the gods by…what didhe call it?
Pulling up their roots. We had our own encounter with Queen DirtFace. He talkedabout waking up at the Wolf House with no memoriesexcept for one name—Annabeth. When she heard that, Annabeth had to try hard notto cry. When Percy had finished, Jason whistledappreciatively. The rules clearly state we can only have two! So we can both tell you to shut Jasongave Percy a fist bump.
Even Reyna managed a smile, though her eyes werestormy. You guys looknothing alike. You did anawesome job. Annabeth kicked his shin. She hated to interrupt abudding bromance, but Reyna was right: Great Prophecy. It sounds like the Romans are awareof it too? Octavian, you have it committed to memory? In English, not Latin.
Percy looked down, suddenlyinterested in his cheeseburger. Oh, gods…Reyna had triedto make a move on Percy. That explained the tinge ofbitterness, maybe even envy, in her words. Percy hadturned her down for Annabeth. Shewanted to throw her arms around him, but shecommanded herself to stay cool.
Foes bearing arms tothe Doors of Death…that means Romans and Greeks. We have to combine forces to find those doors. It She decided to letthe matter go. You were saying? Percy took a bite of his burger. She turned it in her fingers, studying the dark redsurface. You do realize that the ancient lands—and theMare Nostrum—are dangerous? Roman Empire is not only the birthplace of the gods. As dangerous as travel is fordemigods here in America, there it would be ten timesworse.
Her fingernails cut littlecrescents into the apple as she turned it. No hero in his right mind wouldgo there.
Besides, theArgo II is a top-of-the-line warship. We have to stop the Jason,Piper, Leo, and me. Without a vote in the senate? Without a proper debate? Tyson stopped by their couch and wrung his meatyhands. His big brown eye was full of concern. He looked at Hazel, who was seatednext to him. We needto take her away, but she will not go on the ship.
She looked straight atAnnabeth. There she is. Everyone stared at the harpy. Noone spoke. The Markof Athena…She resisted the urge to check her pocket,but she could feel the silver coin growing warmer—thecursed gift from her mother.
Follow the Mark ofAthena. Avenge me. Around them, the sounds of the feast continued, butmuted and distant, as if their little cluster of couches hadslipped into a quieter dimension.
Percy was the first to recover. You andMrs. His eyes fixed on Ella. She sat cross-legged on Mrs. Annabeth gave Percy a curious glance. Obviously, heand Frank and Hazel were hiding something.
Just asobviously, Ella had recited a prophecy—a prophecythat concerned her. She forced a laugh. Maybeharpies are different here, on the Roman side. Ourshave just enough intelligence to clean cabins and cook Do yours usually foretell the future? Do youconsult them for your auguries? The Romanofficers laughed nervously.
Some sized up Ella, thenlooked at Octavian and snorted. The idea of a chickenlady issuing prophecies was apparently just as ridiculousto Romans as it was to Greeks. Besides, wealready have a real prophecy to worry about. Is Ella okay with that?
The Romans looked at Reyna, waiting for her ruling. Annabeth held her breath.
Reyna had an excellent poker face. Then he climbed on Mrs. They dove straight into a shadow on the SenateHouse wall and disappeared. See the ship.
He turned to Annabeth, and his smilechanged. Then Annabeth blinked,and Leo was just regular old Leo again, with his usualimpish grin. As Leo andOctavian headed for the rope ladder, she thought aboutcalling them back—but how could she explain that? Telleveryone she was going crazy, seeing things and feelingcold? The wind spirits began clearing the plates. Annabeth wondered how Jason could be so dense. It was obvious enough to Annabeth. Percy knit his eyebrows.
Shewondered what Reyna was up to. Or maybe therewas something she wanted to say in private. Either way,Annabeth was reluctant to be alone and unarmed with Now,walking through this miniature city, she kept thinking, Ishould have made a dome like that. I love the waythose columns lead into that courtyard. Whoeverdesigned New Rome had clearly poured a lot of timeand love into the project.
Many demigods stayon to live here after their time in the legion. They go toour university. They settle down to raise families. Percyseemed interested in this fact. She musthave scowled more fiercely than she realized, becauseReyna laughed. Reyna nodded. She turned and whistled like she washailing a cab. A moment later, two metal dogs racedtoward them—automaton greyhounds, one silver andone gold.
She noted that the greyhounds had teeth likesteel arrowheads. He smiled and handed her a to-gocup, then offered one to Annabeth. Areyou familiar with how her Roman form is different? Sheremembered the way Terminus had called Athena thatgoddess, as if she were scandalous. Not for Romans. Talking about that always made Annabeth feel self-conscious, like she was some sort of freak.
Peopleusually asked her whether or not she had a belly button, Of course she had abelly button. The Vestal Virgins, forinstance…if they broke their vows and fell in love withanyone, they would be buried alive. No wonder the Romans had been giving herstrange looks.
Not leaders of dangerous quests. Not officially. But she wondered if herfriends on the Argo II would agree. The praetor strokedhis ears. A group ofchildren spilled out of a nearby alleyway and gatheredaround Argentum, petting the dog and laughing, unfazedby its razor-sharp teeth. They wound their way up the hill. The greyhoundsfollowed, leaving the children behind.
Annabeth kept A vague memory startedtugging at her—the way Reyna brushed her hair behindher ear, the silver ring she wore with the torch andsword design. Of course you spoke mostly withmy older sister Hylla, who is now queen of thesites. She left just this morning, before you arrived. At any rate, when we last met, I was a merehandmaiden in the house of Circe.
Percy andshe had washed ashore from the Sea of Monsters. Hylla had welcomed them. She had helped Annabethget cleaned up and given her a beautiful new dress anda complete makeover. Then Circe had made her salespitch: Annabeth hadbeen tempted, maybe just a little, until she realized theplace was a trap, and Percy had been turned into a That last part seemed funny afterward; but atthe time, it had been terrifying.
How did you two—? You were brave. Annabeth thought it might besafer not to respond. They reached the top of the hill, where a terraceoverlooked the entire valley. Beesbuzzed through honeysuckle and jasmine, which filledthe afternoon air with a dizzying mix of perfumes. In themiddle of the terrace stood a statue of Bacchus in a sortof ballet position, wearing nothing but a loincloth, hischeeks puffed out and lips pursed, spouting water into a Despite her worries, Annabeth almost laughed.
Sheknew the god in his Greek form, Dionysus—or Mr. D,as they called him back at Camp Half-Blood. Seeingtheir cranky old camp director immortalized in stone,wearing a diaper and spewing water from his mouth,made her feel a little better.
Reyna stopped at the edge of the terrace. The viewwas worth the climb. The whole city spread out belowthem like a 3-D mosaic. To the south, beyond the lake,a cluster of temples perched on a hill. To the north, anaqueduct marched toward the Berkeley Hills. Workcrews were repairing a broken section, probablydamaged in the recent battle. Annabeth turned. Tell me aboutyourself. Tell me about Camp Half-Blood. Your friendPiper has sorcery in her words. I spent enough timewith Circe to know charmspeak when I hear it.
And Jason…well, he has changed. He seems distant, no longer quite Roman. Reyna had no one. She wasresponsible for running an entire camp all by herself. Annabeth could sense that Reyna wanted Jason to loveher. But he had disappeared, only to come back with anew girlfriend.
