The Mark of Athena (Heroes of Olympus, #3) by Rick Riordian. The way Rick wove the multiple journeys of the 7 together was awesome. Lots of action, and even though there are some 'stars' (percy, annabeth, jason, maybe even leo), I still liked and wanted to read more about the others (frank, hazel, piper). Great 3rd in the series, looking forward to book #4. (2013)
