The sea nymph Thetis is raped, and it is somewhat graphically described on page 19. Discussion of her subsequent PTSD continues onto page 20.

There is also discussion on pages 58-59 of female slaves who are forced into sex by the men of Peleus's house. Their pregnancy after is also mentioned. There is a line that says that these relationships are not always rape, but it is also possible that is just what the men tell themselves.

There are ghosts of sorts involved in Greek mythology but it's not really relevant. There's something from the POV of a ghost near the end but nothing intended to be creepy involving ghosts at all

It isn't meant as a threat or manipulation but there is heavy implications that if achilles or patroclus died before the other, they would kill themself to be with the other. At one point patroclus says that if achilles died he "wouldnt be far behind".

There is a point in the book where Achilles is forced to pose as a woman and is referred to as a woman (with she/her pronouns) by characters who do not know it is Achilles.

Not really but some characters are homophobic. It remains rather rare and not so violent, they're more denying than aggressive

both main characters are lgbt and die by the end of the book - not sure how spoilery this is, since Song of Achilles is an adaptation of the Iliad and Patroclus's and Achilles's deaths are quite notorious from the original material

several mentions of sex as well as young pregnancies. there are three scenes with explicitly sexual content. though the prose writing is designed to make them fairly "poetic", two of the three would be considered graphic. easy to spot them before they happen, each lasts around a page or two.

Whether the ending is happy or not is arguable. Both characters die but they are reunited in the afterlife.
