* LivingLieDetector: Ig's horns compel people to confess their sins and their innermost thoughts once they see them. [[spoiler:Lee Tourneau]] is the only person immune to their effect, [[spoiler:because he has Merrin's cross. When Ig takes it, Lee can't shrug off Ig's power anymore]].

to:

* LeaveYourQuestTest: Towards the end of the novel, Glenna finds Ig and tries to convince him to come back home with her, going back to the way things were before the start of the novel. Ig realises that as long as he [[spoiler: keeps wearing [[PowerLimiter Merrin's cross]]]], he can actually do just that... but instead, he gently tells her that not only did he hate the way things were, but ''she'' deserves much better than what he was giving her. Glenna leaves to make some changes in her life and try to be less of a perpetual LoveMartyr, and Ig goes back to preparing for his final confrontation with [[spoiler: Lee]].

Added DiffLines:

* LoveMartyr: Glenna is generous to a fault and wants nothing so much as a chance to make someone happy. Unfortunately, this has led her to have a string of boyfriends who all treated her like a doormat - Ig was arguably the best of the lot, and he barely cared about her at all. [[spoiler: The final chapter hints that her fortunes may be improving, though.]]


Added DiffLines:

* PokeThePoodle: Ig frequently forbids people affected by the horns from doing the really bad things they're thinking about, but incites them into performing lesser sins instead, in many cases ones that are likely to improve their lives. For instance, he tells a store clerk that he may not kill his Alzheimer-suffering wife and go off and live with his mistress. Instead, he is to ''put his Alzheimer-suffering wife in a nursing home'' and go off and live with his mistress.


Added DiffLines:

* TogetherInDeath: [[spoiler: Ig and Merrin]].
