As silly as that makes the series sound, the story is very well-written and imaginative. Not least because of its unusual writing structure. It's written almost entirely in sentence fragments. Like this. All the time. Author claims they generate pace. Good pace. Sentence fragments make for fast-paced reading, particularly during the numerous action sequences.

* YourCheatingHeart: Jack is in love with PJ, but after meeting Reilly he goes to her house for what is obviously a sexual encounter. He lampshades it while he is receiving a naked back rub, but although he is sorry about it, he doesn't refuse to a good time with Reilly anyways. [[spoiler:Except that Reilly is not out for sex.]]

* TheVamp: Reilly, though not as good as she thinks.
* VoluntaryShapeshifting: For some reason, only women are capable of this. Eko is the most blatant example, but the Gorm that Jack meets early on also uses it.
