YMMV: Monster Blood Tattoo
  • Crowning Moment of Awesome: These follow Europe around, but the QGU scene at the end of the second book stands out. Rossamund also gets his share.
  • Crowning Moment of Heartwarming: In the third book, when Rossamund goes to tell her that he's a monster after all, Europe doesn't care. He hugs her, and after a moment, she hugs him back and murmurs about how ironic it is that he's captured her affections. D'aww.
  • Genius Bonus: To someone with a background in linguistics (particularly Germanic and Romance languages), a lot of the dialects and slang feel like a Bilingual Bonus mixed with a little Buffy Speak.
  • I Knew It: Rossamund being a monster was fairly heavily implied before it was actually revealed
  • Jerkass Woobie: Threnody's jerkass attitude is due in part to being very upset with her mother for forcing her to undergo a body-transforming operation she didn't want.
  • Moe: Freckle. Squee. Not to mention Rossamund himself!
  • Nightmare Fuel: You have NO idea.
  • What Do You Mean, It's for Kids?
  • What an Idiot: How many days did it take Rossamund to figure out he'd been kidnapped by pirates?
  • World of No Grandparents: Fransitart and Craumpalin aren't exactly young...
