Mallory Keen hinting at the exits to Midgard, the Sword of Summer

Midgard is home to humans, one of the mortal races. It is one of the Nine Worlds.


Midgard is where the human race resides. Occasionally, other beings from the other worlds may break in, like frost or fire giants. Thor protects the humans from these threats with his mighty hammer.

Boston, which is in Midgard, is the very center of it. Boston is also right at the trunk of the World Tree. It has a nexus that can enable to people to travel freely through the Nine Worlds. The specific nexus is the collection of duck statues, which can allow people to travel through the worlds.

The einherjar are not usually permitted to escape to Midgard, but they can often find ways in and out of Valhalla, with or without permission. Once in Midgard, einherjar retain their inhuman strength and battle skill. But they can die a permanent death. They most likely will be sent to dissolve in Ginnunagap, or to Helheim, where they spend an eternity of misery.

Magnus and his friends frequently visit Midgard instead of solely staying in the afterlife.They dwell in Boston, then in Provincetown during their quest to conquer the wights. Samirah's wedding is also hosted in the realm of the humans, in Bridal Veil Falls.

The Ship of the Dead

For a brief time, Magnus and Alex visited Midgard to explore Randolph's manor. There they find clues on how to defeat Loki. Later, Magnus and his crew sailed through the seas of the human world on their sea voyage. They stopped by Flåm, Norway, the UK, and York. They meet several mythical entities in Midgard, such as Frigg. Later, Magnus changes the old family manor to the Chase Space, a home for the homeless children.
