* Narm: Marian Alston's inconsistent accent. It comes and goes throughout the books, and when it's there, all it does is distract from whatever she's saying. Particularly painful is the scene in the first book where she deliberately employs a thick accent in an attempt to scare the Lisketters. Rather than making her sound like a ScaryBlackWoman, it makes her sound like ComicStrip/{{Pogo}}.

* CompleteMonster: Hong and Walker.
** Hong more so than Walker, who admits to being {{Squick}}ed a time or two by her most out-there proclivities, and occasionally reins her in - though for practical, not altruistic, reasons.
** And Helmut Mittler, who is an Alternate History version of Heinrich Himmler.

** They ''do'' realize that many very nasty things could've happened as side-effects of the Event though. Dwelling on them was [[DespairEventHorizon extremely unhealthy]] however, and as a result a set of unwritten taboos on discussing the Event gradually developed.
