Jason grace in the burning maze
The Burning Maze Quotes by Rick Riordan
trials of apollo the burning maze
It was released on May 1, The formerly glorious god Apollo , cast down to earth in punishment by Zeus , is now an awkward mortal teenager named Lester Papadopoulos. In order to regain his place on Mount Olympus , Lester must restore five Oracles that have gone dark. But he has to achieve this impossible task without having any godly powers and while being duty-bound to a confounding young daughter of Demeter named Meg. Thanks a lot, Dad. With the help of some demigod friends, Lester managed to survive his first two trials, one at Camp Half-Blood , and one in Indianapolis , where Meg received the Dark Prophecy.
Apollo then goes on, in mourning and shock, and by the end of the book, Riordan closes with Apollo remembering the words of Jason; promising himself to remember his death, his sacrifice, his life. We had previously met Jason Grace in The Heroes of Olympus series, where he is introduced as a character with amnesia who was learning about himself and his past alongside readers, then as the series progressed he became a beloved character. This is perhaps the first time since the death of Luke Castellan The Last Olympian that a protagonist has been killed in this saga, with no hopes of return. In my opinion, this is what makes these books so real—in a mythological setting, of course. The ability to confront that death is a real eventuality of life, even when it is a tragedy.
Hazel was brought back to life only because the Doors of Death were opened by Gaia, so Nico was able to smuggle her back to life, also, is implied that Hades allowed it to happened, because not only Hazel is his daugther, she had to fulfill her destiny in the Second Great Prophecy, she wasn't meant to die in Alaska. None of these circumstances aply to Jason, is up to Riordan to decide if he could be resurrected or not. Honestly, I want to believe that he has a plan in mind to bring back Jason at the end of ToA, so let's wait for the next two books and cross our fingers. I've never really liked Jason, but the way he died, no matter how heroic that was appeared to be, it was not, he can't died just like that, beside, I remember that he looks like he whispered something to Tempest before he fell, we still don't know what he actually said right, it couldn't be "hey bud, just left me die here, make sure the other safe" which so Jason btw, but I hope there is something more about his death. It doesn't have to be resurrection, just something more.
I understand being upset when a character dies. His death hit me hard. Only for shock value. My favorite characters die all the time. Always for shock value, making no true impact on the story only to be brought back a year or two later. Death has no meaning in comic books anymore.
