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.
YMMV: Blood Rites
Complete Monster: Since Thomas and Lara prove that it is possible for a full vampire of the White Court to have a conscience, a sense of morality and genuine emotions for people they care about, Lord Raith can be held morally responsible for his crimes. In addition to his on and off-screen acts of evil, he reveals that even his supposed affection for his daughters is simple pragmatism, making him totally without redeeming qualities.
Freud Was Right: Obvious in the final chapters of the book, to the point that it was even Lampshaded by Harry in the narrative.
Moral Event Horizon: Harry considers the practitioners who send off the Entropy Curse to have fully crossed it because of the cold murder of Emma. Even though they are women, Harry will no longer care about that fact as they must be stopped at any cost now.
Harry also candidly mentions he wouldn't mind marrying Murphy for her mom's cooking.
Tear Jerker: Emma's death, mainly because she was just a nice woman trying to do her job, feed her kids and pay the bills, and she got killed because her murderers thought she was the only woman left on set who was pretty enough to be attractive to Genosa. And she wasn't even his fiancee.
