YMMV: Fire Bringer
- Growing the Beard: It's only a single book; however, Part One is not as well written as the later parts, what with the violations of Show, Don't Tell and the often Narmy World Building.
- Esoteric Happy Ending: After Sgorr is defeated, Rannoch orders all the deer to stop using reason like humans and to split back into separate herds, so not only are they going to keep fighting amongst themselves, they will have no defense against the humans.
- Magnificent Bastard: Sgorr's ambition would impress even General Woundwort. Especially since he's a hummel, or a stag with no antlers who ends up leading an army of three thousand deer.
- Tear Jerker: Holy crap.
- Wangst: Yeah, Rannoch gets this. The "I'm not a changeling!" arguement just stops working after a while, almost veering into Suspiciously Specific Denial territory.
