* At the vampire ball, Kelly Hamilton, an arrogant Red Court Vampire that has been nothing but a pain in Harry's ass throughout the novel, places a hand on Michael Carpenter's shoulder. Her hand immediately bursts into white hot flame, leaving her screaming in agony. Michael's mere ''touch'' made a vampire spontaneously combust. Even better was his nonchalant response.

** There is another thing about that line that can be easily missed; the reason wizards CallTheirAttacks with [[AsLongAsItSoundsForeign ancient language or nonsense words]] is that using words from languages they actually speak risk damaging their brains and causing the power to surge out when they don't want it to. For Harry to summon fire using regular language, he was so far past caring that wasn't on the same continent anymore.

* Harry lets the villain [[spoiler:kill him in his dreams]], but uses the villain's weakening of the border between worlds to [[spoiler:make his ghost appear to assist in killing the villain]] and has someone (who could quite possibly kill him) [[spoiler:perform CPR on him the next minute]].

The entire thing possibly counts as {{Foreshadowing}} to later events.

** This is often overshadowed by his PersonOfMassDestruction tendencies in later books, and is worth dwelling on. At this point, Harry has had a chunk taken out of his magic and is additionally weakened by having four times broken his bargain with Lea, so that he struggles even with making some light. And then he burns down the topiary with flames that shoot fifty feet into the air. Picture fifty feet. Are you picturing them? ''That is a lot of feet.''

* The introduction of Ferrovax. Ferrovax is literally a force of nature, maybe two tiers down from out-and-out godhood.
** Also the reveal that Michael was the one who slew Siriothrax.
