YMMV / Chrestomanci

  • Crazy Awesome: Angelica Petrocchi. She would not be nearly as effective if she wasn't tone-deaf. She may not be actually nuts, but as Renata put it, she's a "back-to-front genius."
  • Harsher in Hindsight: Most of the class bullies anyone who's suspected to be a witch. This can be attributed to Fantastic Racism until it's revealed that most of said bullies are witches, themselves, and know it.
  • Moral Event Horizon:
    • In Charmed Life, Gwendolen crosses it when she shows up to help a criminal society kill her little brother to open the way to other worlds.
    • In The Pinhoe Egg, Marianne's father and uncles cross it when it's revealed that, rather than kill their father under their mother's orders when he starts getting too uppity, they merely crippled his legs and imprisoned him in a pocket dimension in the woods behind his house for eight years. They felt it was kinder.
