- Broken Base: The series's finale. To some, it is the adequate culmination of a surprisingly well-written Mind Screw series of books, while to other, it is a bizarre and disturbing ending which does not end things very much.
- Crazy Awesome: Martha varies between this, and just plain crazy.
- Darkness-Induced Audience Apathy: Perhaps inevitable, given the sheer amount of characters who die or reveal themselves as traitors.
- What Do You Mean, It's for Kids?: Yeah, it's for kids, and also is full of claustrophobic perils, biologic horrors and bloody deaths.
