YMMV / Grave Peril

  • Crazy Awesome: Harry defeats Kravos by getting himself clinically dead before being brought back through PCR, creating in the process a ghost of himself which he then teams up with to fight Kravos.
  • What an Idiot: Susan gatecrashing Bianca's ball. Not only does she ignore Harry, who has repeatedly told her that it's too dangerous for her to attend, she also thinks a fake invitation will hide the fact that she wasn't invited. Or, that if she does get discovered, no one will care.
  • Unintentionally Unsympathetic: Susan. Because of her own stupid decision and refusal to heed Harry's warnings, she ends up becoming a vampire, Harry is tortured - in ways that he never really elaborates upon, though there are pretty clear hints that he was gang-raped by Bianca's cronies - and technically dies, though he's able to come back. What's worse, although the Red Court were probably gearing for war for years, they're able to use the incidents of the book to declare it proper, causing years of suffering, misery and death. All because Susan 'had to get the story'.
    • Susan can hardly be blamed for the war itself. In later books it's actually explained that the Red Court was going to find any excuse to go to war regardless. In fact, they would've actually preferred to gather more strength first.
