Added DiffLines:

* During the start of the final battle, [[LightEmUp Sam]] and [[GravityMaster Dekka]] absolutely [[CurbStompBattle tear apart the coyotes that were holding the pre-schoolers hostage]] by combining their powers. This leaves Drake with no option but to retreat and the surviving coyotes running away in terror.
** Brianna's help also proves invaluable, cockily running right into the middle of the coyote pack and luring them away from the children with food and towards their deaths at the hands of Dekka and Sam.


Added DiffLines:

* Despite that fact that [[spoiler: he is being manipulated by the Gaiaphage]] you have to admit that Caine's takeover of the power plant was absolutely effortless, with the only actual challenge coming from the brave resistance of Britney.

Added DiffLines:

*** Howard quickly follows this up by calling out both Astrid and Albert for acting like leaders yet not doing anything to save lives or aid the wounded during the fire or in any other previous crisis scenarios. In a massive PetTheDog moment he also calls them out for not treating Edilio well enough for everything he does.

* Astrid Ellison and Nerezza's fight.

to:

* Astrid Ellison and Nerezza's fight. \n This marks the first time Astrid gets psychical and the result is a brutal up close fight where Astrid [[spoiler:takes down and nearly chokes to death the physical avatar of a literal EldritchAbomination.]] All in order to [[MamaBear protect Little Pete]]


Added DiffLines:

* With Orc too drunk and off balance to do anything and Astrid giving up having been past the DespairEventHorizon at this point, Edilio is left with no choice but to single handedly take out both Lance and Turk when they attempt to kill Little Pete. Showing off his BadassNormal skills he had been building up for four books he takes out both of the loathsome Neo Nazi's in a split second, shooting Lance in the face and Turk in the stomach. Although the resulting impact on Edilio's consciousness is heartbreaking the act itself is still awesome and cathartic after everything the two had done up to that point.

* Jack standing up to Drake of all people.

* Jack standing up to Drake of all people. If Diana and Caine hadn't stopped the fight there was a good chance Jack could have ended Drake right there and then.




to:

* Duck Zhang, a normal kid outside of the FAYZ circle of top dogs and upper echelons, stepping up during the books climax and with the help of Caine [[spoiler:performing a HeroicSacrifice to defeat the Gaiaphage and prevent it from creating an unstoppable form it could inhabit.]]
** This also serves as one of the few times that the [[GreaterScopeVillain The Gaiaphage]] is outplayed and defeated. The EldritchAbomination let its own hubris got the better of it and as a result [[spoiler: it is crippled and defeated by a kid who's powers it had no knowledge of and had dismissed as no threat regardless.]]



* Regardless of your thoughts of [[BaseBreaker Astrid]] it's hard to deny that Edilio and Howard's refusal to follow her orders in front of everyone in town served as an excellent wake up call that her desire to have control over everything was doing some serious damage. A fact Astrid later admits partly as a result of Edilio and Howard's deliberate inaction



* Astrid Ellison and Nerezza's catfight.

Added DiffLines:

* Side-Character Ellen playing a big role in saving the town as it's in the process of being burned down, taking control of the situation the best she could and creating fire breaks using Orc, Dekka and Jack's powers and skills. She successfully contains a raging fire without the help of any working water or hoses.
** Edilio and, funnily enough, [[JerkAss Howard]] also deserve credit for spending the entire night saving as many lives as they can. This is done without the help of any superpowers.

Added DiffLines:

* Newcomer Sanjit quickly proves himself to be this when he finds himself in a game of wits with [[MagnificentBastard Caine Soren]] and utterly trouncing him, smoothly lying during the conversation and blindsiding Caine's whole group by drugging their food.

to:

* There is no doubt that Sam and Caine's final battle, and the first outright fight between the two, is made of awesome. After a few shots are fired to test the waters the two go all out with [[BeamOWar a epic clash of Sam's killing light and Caine's storm of telekinetically thrown rubble.]] [[spoiler: Sam wins the clash and horrifically wounds Caine]]
** Caine then retreats but then proves that even when in extreme pain he is still incredibly cunning by [[spoiler: luring Sam into a derelict hose before bringing the whole building down on top of Sam.]] However Caine's smug sense of victory is only met with the sight of a PillarOfLight as [[spoiler: Sam blasts his way free of the rubble and quickly returns to the fight]]

* One of the most shocking and nightmarish scenes in the book quickly turns into one of the most cathartic as a panicking Astrid [[spoiler: nearly crushes Little Pete's gameboy with the cement binding her hands. Little Pete immediately makes not only the cement binding Astrid's hands, but that trapping Sam and every other starved and tortured mutant held in Coates.]] What follows is Caine and Diana immediately [[ScrewThisImOuttaHere running the fuck away]] and a unprepared [[CompleteMonster Drake]] getting [[spoiler: his arm burned so badly it nearly kills him by Sam's light powers.]]
