Added DiffLines:

* Trellis has once again ''proved'' how utterly skilled he is as a stonekeeper by instantly defending himself and Vigo when Emily unexpectedly attacks.
** The clincher is that Vigo doesn't even 'flinch''.

Added DiffLines:

** Leon's BadassBoast despite the overwhelming odds:
-->'''Trellis''': "I don't think we'll be able to kick our way out of this!"
-->'''Leon''': "You're right." ''(straps on gauntlets)'' '''"We'll have to do some punching too."'''

Added DiffLines:

* It turns that Emily and Navin '''destroyed''' Luger's stone. He pretends to to have done it himself, but Trellis knows better.
* Trellis leaving his father, despite the threat of death and choosing to help his brother.


* Emily and Navin's [[BrotherSisterTeam teamwork]]. Emily repowers the Charnon House while Navin delivers on hell of a RocketPunch to Luger.

** [[spoiler: Unfortunately this becomes less awesome when you realize that the Amulet was taking control of Emily and encouraging her to kill.]]


* the history behind the creation of Lucien Underground. The war is tending the increasing animosity vetween humans and elves, bad enough to the point that ''Cielis'' secceded from its outer city to separate itself from 'outsiders' (people who don't look like human). But even then, people like Riva are still geting pushed out and many left. So what does her father do? '''He built a ''freaking'' city underground''' right under the Cielis Guard's noses and ''no one'' noticed. It was kept secret for ''years'' and its existence was only revealed to Lucien when the people needed evacuating. And the Ash family are selfless enough to open their doors despite the past racism. They saved ''thousands'' of lives.

* It's subtle, but consider this: Trellis managed to figure out there is something more from the war, the Elven government is compromised, and Alledia is bound to be colonized. This was something not even ''senior stonekeepers'' knew, like the likes of Luger, who was close to the Elf King, nor Vigo, who has lived through all of it. He may have had helped from his uncle, but Virgil did mention that he would've figure it all out on his own anyway. Considering his age, looking around ten, this is pretty impressive.
** Trellis then later instantly realizes the memory was a trap set up for Emily.

Trellis then later is revealed to have discovered the truth behind his father's stone and the invasion of Alledia thanks to his uncle. The memory shows him reacting calmly and rationally, making determined inquiries to everything his uncle explains to him, a demonstration of how much [[WiseBeyondTheirYears wiser]] he is than even a lot of the senior stonekeepers in the story. Virgil even claims Trellis would have discovered this on his own even if he didn't tell him.
* Trellis
instantly realizes realizing that the Earth memory was is a trap set up for Emily.


* Trellis pulls his CrowningMomentOfAwesome towards the end of the Book. He produces what may be the ''most powerful defense In-universe'' as he manages to protect all three of them ''from a high-altitude fall'' with the barrier dramatically reforming the earth's surface from impact alone. Complete with mushroom cloud and debris. And when the dust settles, how did Trellis finish it off? ''With a modified goddamn ThreePointLanding like badass and he isn't breaking a sweat.''

* Here's the thing: we only know two ways to view memory cubes, which is either the specialized gun that Gabilan has, or the Nexus itself. Now, it's unlikely Gabilan has ever shown the Cortex to anyone or even told somebody how to view the cube for years. The Nexus is destroyed (likely on purpose ordered by the Voice) and the memory extractor is nowhere to be found but Gabilan gives the cube to Trellis anyway, whom he doesn't even tell him how to view it. Anyone viewing or entering an extracted memory is likely unprecedented, because most stonekeepers are only used to travel into the Void with their current memories. The thing is, ''Trellis managed to figure it out on his own regadless'', which all the more prove on how innovative he can be.

* Review the map of Alledia. See how far Lucien is from Ippo? Well, ''Riva Ash'' managed to get the entire refugee city of Lucien and the remnants of the human Resistance ''that'' far south. That's an OffScreenMomentOfAwesome right there.

* He may say that he's not a good stonekeeper, but Trellis is just as skilled as Emily. Luger claims that learning the ability to travel the Void will tale many years to master, but this two pulled it off correctly on the first try. The only thing Trellis hadn't prepared for is how to get out, which Emily managed to do so. Even then, he learns quickly to do the exact same thing all the while pulling off a barrier that purges the shadows. ''Not a good stonekeeper'' my ass.

* Consider this: the series have been ongoing for ''10 years''. Kazu Kibuishi have been writing, drawing, and coloring Amulet for a decade. Nonetheless, it's not hard to see where the inspiration of Emily's [[TheDeterminator determined]] attitude came from.
** Jason Caffoe also counts. The series '''heavily''' rely on him when it comes to coloring. Do you remember many of the one-page and two-paged spreads of scenes?? Jason Caffoe ''did all those'', with Kazu contributing a bit for the general look but he's the one who's doing the fine details. ''Holy Shit''.


Added DiffLines:

* Emily's first use of her amulet. We're just as stunned as her.
* Trellis's introduction is ''awesome'' due to the built up to it. The terrifying aura is executed perfectly and fear is genuine when he shows up.

Added DiffLines:

** Trellis then later instantly realizes the memory was a trap set up for Emily.
* The Firebird. It's horrifying to know that it's [[spoiler:Emily]] but you can't help but look in awe of the fiery avian.
* ''Firelight'' is one of the few volumes that ''TheBadGuyWins''. The Voice managed to trick Emily to fall in his trap by manipulating her worst memory and used her emotions against her. And just like ''The Last Council'', the antagonist gets an easy win. No wonder the Voice is TheChessmaster
* Once again the Elves shows how far clever and technologically advanced they are compared to the rest of Alledia by building an ''underground base in Frontera and a space station miles above''. The fact that the Elven resistance managed to avoid and survive this long with the Elf King after them is no less impressive.
