'''Feel free to add your favourite awesome moments in the appropriate book period. Please explain why you think it qualifies. '''
* Mary stepping up to do the daycare with no help and no agenda was a CrowningMomentOfAwesome in itself.
* Drake's [[spoiler: [[CombatTentacles whip-hand]]]].
* The dreaded poof scene at the end of the book.
* Diana's [[DeadpanSnarker quips]] had this ongoing effect. It was kickass how her insults weren't only hilarious and well-timed, but true too and with context.
* The confrontation and battle of wits between Sam and Caine half-way through the book. They tore each other new ones like a boss, whilst delivering a WhamLine at the end. [[spoiler: '''Caine:''' ...And you are...Brother. ]]
* Bringing down a entire church Caine Soren style.
* Astrid swinging not only herself, but her 4 year-old brother onto a balcony below them to hide from Drake. All while reciting the [[SurvivalMantra Hail Mary prayer.]]

* Jack standing up to Drake of all people.
* Lana going to take on the Gaiaphage. Whether you think she was being stupid or not, you have to give her credit for being ballsy.
* Caine finally defying the Gaiaphage after [[spoiler: Diana is attacked by Drake.]]
* Orsay's power.

* Diana Ladris [[spoiler: Risking her life for people she didn't even know.]] Aye, she's come a long way from being a [[ManipulativeBastard Manipulative bitch]] in ''GONE''.
* Astrid Ellison and Nerezza's catfight.

* Howard's loyalty for Orc in this book defines the term.
* [[spoiler: Diana leaving Caine after being betrayed by him. ]]
* [[spoiler: Caine killing Lance. More because of who was dying than because of how it was done.]]
* [[spoiler: Performing surgery on Dekka.]]

* Edilio unloading on Sam and Dekka after Sam accuses him of not having anyone he cares about. [[spoiler: He does. It's the Artful Roger]]
* Dekka finally calling out Brianna was pretty kickass.
* Caine's bubble finally bursting, whether [[BaseBreakingCharacter you're a fan ''or'' a hater,]] was either very compelling and moving (if you love him) or hilarious and relieving that someone at last managed to pick him apart (if you don't-love-him-so-much). Either way, full of awesome.
* Penny using her power was this combined with horror.
* "I miss Diana." [[spoiler: Yes Caine, you are lost without her. Thanks for acknowledging that. ]]

* [[spoiler: Sam kills Drake.]]
* [[spoiler: Albert calls out filmmakers that think the graves in the middle of the town plaza are fake.]]
* [[spoiler: A cop is about to report Edilio to immigration services, but when he recognizes Edilio, he instead calls for another four police cars for protection.]]
* [[spoiler: Caine, of all people, is the recipient of Little Pete's consciousness, and he gets to save the world in the most {{Badass}} manner possible.]]

* [[spoiler: Brianna would have ended Gaia if it wasn't for a dud shell, even though she was fighting her alone and wounded, and she still went out fighting.]]
