What happens to einherjar after they are killed in battle? Is there a special afterlife dimensions just for them or do they like cease to exist or something?
Hecate. Love magic, witchcraft and the supernatural.
^Are you talking about when they were talking about the trial? I think they were talking about punishment rather than where they go where they die, but that was what I got after reading it.
Isn’t Hellheim for those that die outside of battle like age or disease? Just looked up Ginnungagap and it sounds like the Nordic version of Chaos than an afterlife dimension/realm.
Would it be better to have bedrooms in the minor gods' cabins instead of the built-in cushioned benches and twin beds in the lofts. If the bedrooms are small enough (but not too small), it could work and would be more private/better than benches.
Yes the child would be a demititan. Probably would be more powerful than a demigod depending on the Titan parent. I don't think the child of a protegenos would be a demiprotogenos. I think they would be a demigod but far more powerful than other demigods and demititans. A protogenos is a primordial god and goddess, but still a god or goddess.
I believe Long Island is talking about a demigod’s abilities like Hydrokinesis, Aerokinesis, Electrokinesis and etc., abilities/powers that comes from their godly parents not learned and/or passive skills/abilities like fighting and etc. It is believed that Athena’s children have some control over weapons as Athena is a goddess of war which is a power.
No idea. It was never said what determines what afterlife a person ends up in when they die. I suppose it could be possible other demigods could end up in Valhalla or Folkvanger. Although it is more likely those demigods are pre-determined to go to the afterlife associated with what pantheon their godly parent is from (Elysian for Greek and Roman demigods and etc.).
It's possible the magic barriers protecting CHB keep out Covid-19 and campers don't need to worry about getting it and doing the extra safety measures we do like wearing a face mask and etc.
Some Titans/Titanesses like Hecate are gods/goddesses in addition to Titans/Titanesses, so it is possible that their children would be considered both, demigods and demi-Titans. The children of regular Titans and Titanesses, absolutely. Children of more powerful Titans/Titanesses would most likely be more powerful and stronger than other demi-Titans.
Does anyone know if and when Eli Whitney was mentioned to be a son of Demeter? If not, then it isn't canon and needs to be removed.
Aren't they both gods as well as Titans? I think they mean Titan only like Kronos, Rhea, Oceanus and etc. that aren't also gods/goddesses. Besides we don't know the full extent of demigods of children of god-Titans like Hecate and Helios enough to say for sure.
Demi-Titans obviously. Probably more powerful than demigods since the Titans are more powerful than the gods.
Other than that I really enjoyed the book. Rick’s book are still a joy to read tho there is a couple little nitpicks that I have.
1) I personally didn’t really like that Reyna became hunter. I always felt like she was the bad ass that was married to her job and even though she never had guy luck, one day she found the perfect one for her, and since it was interpreted that only a mortal can love her, even though that every single person around this hypothetically male would be better fast more heroic and more beautiful than him, he would still be worth it cuz he is near and dear to her heart. Too sappy? Eh oh well
2) I pretty much despise every fake death there is, so even though frank’s is about the least painful of the majority of them, I still don’t know how to feel about it. It felt like a weird contrived death with a weird contrived way of him coming back. The only couple reason i’m like “eh” on it instead “ugh” is that we had an major death in the pervious book so it seems like a little break before the absolute firestorm that is going to be book five and that the battle was not consequences free.
3) the wakanda reference was absolutely hilarious, but it messes with the lore because infinity war came out in 2018 and the story should take place in 2010 so unless if there was a marvel comic with wakanda depicting something similar released in 2010 or infinity war came out in 2010 in the riordanverse, we would have some little timeline issues for us to debate in the future ( semantics I know)
Overall I really enjoyed the book tho, and for the entire series of far I have steady grown more and more to like it. TOA is really taking an identity of its own as the really Dark story of the riordanverse. We’re really see consequences and sacrifices never see in uncle rick’s works, tho I have yet to personally put it over any of his other series, except for HOO ( cuz I still don’t know what to feel bout that series lol)
Edit: oh another gripe is hazel being chosen for praetor. Absolutely nothing against her, I love her to death, but every single person we know that we know was praetor was from the 5th cohort. Jason, the Michael dude, I-don’t-know-bout-Reyna-but-it’s-heavy-implied-tho, Percy, Frank, and now hazel at all 5th.
They could still bring Jason Grace back or make him a minor god. Hades COULD resurrect Jason in exchange for Caligula, maybe even the entire Triumvirate. I really hope they do. I love Jason and he's one of my favorite characters. Reyna being a Hunter makes perfect sense. She had difficulties in the romance department so she wants to never go through that pain again by becoming a Huntress.
It says on Frank's page that Frank died, but Frank is seen near the end of the book during Hazel's election to become the new Praetor, so how did he die?
Ganymede. Zeus lusted after him and abducted him in the form of an eagle. Zeus made him a god and his eromenos, his sexual partner/lover.
