In book two, Eloise tears Daren's glasses off of his face and grinds them into dust. She then proceeds to hug him like a Cool Big Sis, but Daren is so confused and terrified that he starts to cry.
Learning about how Devon and the Lunaris Emperor were once schoolmates for years and that Devon did not remember him at all was funny enough, but learning that Mr. Lunaris was head over heals for him and used over 70% of his clan's resources in order to find Daren just to get Devon's attention was priceless!!
Devon always (whether it's on purpose or not is up in the air) gets Kyle's name wrong by calling him Bill so the first time Daren calls Kyle by name correctly, Kyle is shocked, just shocked.
