Added DiffLines:

* ArtisticLicenseGeography: Harry describes a climactic racing battle to the top of the Chichen Itza pyramid. The steps of the pyramid are ''very'' narrow and steep, and practically impossible to take at a run even for someone of Harry's height (to say nothing of a PintSizedPowerhouse like Murphy).

* WeHaveReserves: When Harry and friends attack the Red Court, [[spoiler:they first fight ''Esclavos de sangre'' or Blood Slaves. These are Reds who have lost control of their addiction and now it rules them. Martin notes their loss isn't something the Reds mind because of the disdain the Reds have for those who cannot control their addiction]].

** Generally the Red Court's main advantage, and the reason that the rescue mission looks so hopeless: Harry and company might each be match for dozens or even hundreds of vampires... but there's ''thousands.''

** Harry is GenreSavvy enough to realize when he was sitting [[spoiler:before Father Odin]] refusing his hospitality and not accept the food and drink kindly offered would be a heinous insult to his host.

Added DiffLines:

* BackForTheDead: [[spoiler: Susan returns after 6 books only to be sacrificed at the climax of the book]]


Added DiffLines:

* DespairEventHorizon: [[spoiler: What drives Harry to deal with Mab. Crippled, with half his life destroyed, nearly empty on magic, his strongest allies unwilling or unable to help and desperate to save his daughter, he was pretty much at the end of his rope.]]


Added DiffLines:

** Ivy literally cannot help Harry. When pushed she does her best to point him towards [[spoiler: Marcone]] but can't do more.


Added DiffLines:

* PoorCommunicationKills: If Harry just explained to Ebenezar or vice versa instead of keeping secrets and plan maybe Harry wouldn't have been pushed to such dire straits as to [[spoiler: make a deal with Mab]] believing that no one was there to help him.


Added DiffLines:

* YouCantGoHomeAgain: [[spoiler: Harry's office, car, staff and apartment are destroyed by the vampires, pretty much guaranteeing that Harry has no place to come home to (making it that much easier for him to take up Winter's Mantle)]].

** In the last moments of his life [[spoiler:Martin looks into Harry's eyes. It is here Harry sees after mourning the loss of his mortal life, he became a devoted follower of the Red King and went on the mission to destroy the Fellowship of St. Giles. But being among these people tarnished his love of the Red King and he became driven to end the red King at any cost. Even if it meant pushing Susan to kill him, so she would turn into a vampire and Harry present, ready and able to kill Susan.]]

* WellIntentionedExtremist: [[spoiler:Martin]] was willing to go to some extreme ends to [[spoiler:destroy the Red Court. He played the long game for several hundred years by being a ReverseMole on the Red Court. In this book, he betrayed Susan by telling Arianna about Maggie, revealed where Susan was hiding, and then enraged her to the point she would kill him and turn into a full Red Court Vampire. Then have Harry, who is in the right place at the right time, kill Susan on the alter to kill the rest of the Red Court using the very curse they planned used against Harry. Only through a Soulgaze at the last minute did Harry learn the truth of his actions.]]

* RoaringRampageOfRevenge: [[spoiler:Arianna's whole plot is pretty much this, seemingly against Harry. But Harry's not the actual target. He's just the cherry on the top. The goal was to kill Ebenezer [[=McCoy=]], Harry's grandfather.]]
