Waiting on Wednesday # 34 - The Mark of Athena & Foretold

"Waiting On Wednesday" is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating. Be sure to post a link to your Waiting on Wednesday below!

This week's pre-publication "We can't wait to read it!" selections are...

The Mark of Athena  
(Heroes of Olympus, Book 3)
Author: Rick Riordan 
Release Date: October 2, 2012
Published by: Hyperion Book CH

Annabeth is terrified. Just when she's about to be reunited with Percy - after six months of being apart, thanks to Hera - it looks like Camp Jupiter is preparing for war. 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. With its steaming bronze dragon masthead, Leo's fantastical creation doesn't appear friendly. Annabeth hopes that the sight of their praetor Jason on deck will reassure the Romans that the visitors from Camp Half-blood are coming in peace.
And that's only one of her worries. In her pocket Annabeth carries a gift from her mother that came with an unnerving demand: Follow the Mark of Athena. Avenge me. Annabeth already feels weighed down by the prophecy that will send seven demigods on a quest to find - and close - the Doors of Death. What more does Athena want from her?
Annabeth's biggest fear, though, is that Percy might have changed. What if he's now attached to Roman ways? Does he still need his old friends? As the daughter of the goddess of war and wisdom, Annabeth knows she was born to be a leader, but never again does she want to be without Seaweed Brain by her side. (Summary from Goodreads)

OMG! I love Rick Riordan and his writing. When I finished The Son of Neptune, I was so mad because I knew I'd have to wait FOREVER to read the next book. It looks like forever is here finally on October 2. Can't wait because war is coming - yikes!!

(The Demon Trappers, Book 4)
Author: Jana Oliver 
Release Date: December 11, 2012
Published by: St. Martin's Griffin

Now that Riley's managed to (just barely) fend off Armageddon, everything's changed. Well...most things. After their passionate kiss before the big battle in the cemetery, Beck is back to treating her like a little girl, as if nothing ever happened. While she'd love to just tell him off and move on, Riley vowed to take care of Beck the way he's taken care of her since her father's death - but she's about to get a whole lot more than she bargained for. When she's commissioned to go with Beck to his hometown and help him care for his dying mother, they stumble too close to a dark and murderous secret, one that Beck fears will drive Riley away from him forever. As chaos breaks loose, Riley may be Beck's only hope for redemption...and survival.
Meanwhile, up in Atlanta, it's quickly becoming clear that Heaven may have won a battle, but the war is far from over. Riley and Beck face a stormy future, as Lucifer's ex-right-hand-man, Sartael, proves himself to be more resilient than anyone thought. He has Atlanta in his grip and is about to begin a brutal war with the prince of Hell. As the seconds tick down toward a final confrontation, it's up to Riley and the man she loves to finally defeat their old enemy, or lose everything they've fought for. (Summary from Goodreads)
