These are what we call the 'YMMV items.' Things that some people find in this work. We call them 'your mileage might vary' because not everyone sees these things in the same way. This starts discussions in the trope lists, a thing we don't want. Please use the discussion page if you'd like to discuss any of these items.
Lord Seeker Lambert crosses this when he completely disregards his orders to start the battle at the Spire.
Senior Enchanter Adrian ends up killing Pharamond and framing Rhys (her only friend and the man she claims to love) to spark another battle. She has no excuse for this, beyond the bog standard "mages are oppressed" argument, and it's quite clear that Rhys justifiably hates her by the book's conclusion.
The Scrappy: A good amount of fans wanna see Adrian dead as punishment for her crimes.
