YMMV: Twelve Houses

  • Anvilicious: The message of these books? Don't discriminate against anyone. Especially not minorities who live as second class citizens in the south-eastern part of your massively powerful country which could could kick the ass of all its neighbouring countries, and occasionally does. Racism is baaaad, kids.
  • Ensemble Darkhorse: Donnal. You hardly notice him in the first book, but his part grows subtly throughout the second.
  • Shocking Swerve: Who Senneth really is.
  • Tear Jerker: When Karryn Fortunalt, who has thus far been a Spoiled Brat, admits:
    "I suppose I'm not used to thinking of myself as valuable. Mostly I always just thought I was in everybody's way."
