YMMV / Care Taker

  • Anvilicious: Environmentalism in spades. Especially speaks out against bottom-trawling, and the devastation of the rainforest.
  • Cliché Storm: It's relatively little what you can find in Caretaker that you have never seen or read in similar science-fiction young adult literature. Sometimes, like the aptly but quite unoriginally named Dark Army and Dark Lord, it looks like They Just Didn't Care.
  • Complete Monster: The Dark Lord (obviously).
  • Ensemble Darkhorse: Gisco.
  • Evil Is Sexy: Reilly.
  • What Do You Mean, It's for Kids?: The trilogy is marketed as juvenile literature and even below in some countries, despite containing some very graphic sexual overtones.
