    Once Dionysus grew to adulthood, Silenus was his companion along with his group of satyrs. During the Trojan War, Troy had gained the upper hand over Greece, and had begun to threaten Greek shipping. In appearance, the gods were supposed to resemble mortals, whom, however, they far surpassed in beauty, grandeur, and strength; they were also more commanding in stature, height being considered by the Greeks an attribute of beauty in man or woman. Despite this, Nut managed to have five children, and the oldest, Osiris, did indeed take over the throne from Ra.

    They work as spooks for the New Gods. Sweeney is foul-mouthed and a frequent drinker. He watched over the common man, children, women in childbirth, and anyone else who needed protection from evil. He often appeared on amulets and in sculpture as a hairy little man with a lion-like mane and a pug nose.

    Honestly, a lot about Jacob and Kat was disappointing for me during this novel. Laura Moon — Shadow's wife, who dies in a car crash at the beginning of the novel, a few days before Shadow is due to be released from prison. It fell short of my expectations. It was originally a wedding gift from Hephaestus, the blacksmith god, to the goddess Harmonia for her wedding to the King of Thebes, Cadmus.
