YMMV / Asunder

  • Author's Saving Throw: The entire book seems designed to address fan complaints about the previous game's story.
  • Foe Yay: Rhys and Evangeline are both obviously attracted to each other despite their initial animosity.
  • He's Just Hiding: Given that Lambert's fate is left unclear, some believe that he survived Cole's attempt on his life.
    • Jossed by Inquisition, in which Cassandra notes that Lambert is dead and Cole readily admits to having killed him, although he does wonder later if killing him was the right thing to do. It's even a plot point that Lambert has a replacement that the Inquisition has to deal with.
  • Jerkass Woobie: Cole, despite being a serial killer, still manages to be sympathetic.
  • Moral Event Horizon:
    • 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.
  • Tear Jerker: Wynne's Heroic Sacrifice.
  • The Woobie: Pharamond.
