Awesome: The Talisman
- Wolf's Roaring Rampage of Revenge through the Sunlight Home to save Jack. To explain: While dealing with his "change", Wolf breaks out of an iron strongbox suspended in a barn, rips through literally every guard Sunlight Gardner has, and finally goes down in a hail of bullets allowing Jack to just walk out of the Sunlight Home. Simultaneously the most tearjerking and awesome moment in the book.
- Jack and Richard's shootout at Point Venuti. Two preteen boys versus an entire Territories-augmented army.
- Jack's retrieval of the Talisman, which sends a ripple effect throughout his world. Those who hampered his journey or otherwise abused him are punished, while a select few of those who helped him or were kind to him either have their lives changed for the better, or feel this immense, all-consuming joy without really understanding why.
