* ShoutOut: A small one in ''Sandry's Book''. Sandry briefly mentions her growing powers can work on straw too because you can [[{{Literature/Rumpelstiltskin}} spin straw.]]
* SiblingsInCrime: The two pirate leaders from ''Tris's Book'', "Queen" Pauha and her chief mage Enahar.

* NoDeadBodyPoops: Averted with the strangling deaths in ''Street Magic'' and ''Shatterglass''.


Added DiffLines:

* NiceJobFixingItVillain: Of course, [[spoiler:by using Daja's gloves, Ben allows investigating mages to trace him by tracing Daja's magic. Which means that he gets caught since the mages know that Daja isn't setting the fire. Daja also catches up to him and uses the gloves to create impromptu handcuffs]]

* CallBack: In ''Magic Steps'', it's established that every time Sandry says "I really must insist", she's about to use her magic to remove anyone and anything in her way. In ''Will of the Empress'', Ambros tells Sandry that Empress Berenene is determined to make sure she and her inheritance remain in the empire. Sandry cheerfully says that Berenene seems reasonable, and when it comes time to leave, she's sure that she won't have to insist.

* ComboPlatterPowers: Trisana has an overabundance of magic that is set along broadly defined terms: Rain, wind, and lightning, then tides, earthquakes, and lava, ''all'' fall under the purview of weather. Add in the fact that she can see magic, use academic magic, and is the one-in-a-generation who can scry the wind; she's definitely unsettling even to magic users.

* ComboPlatterPowers: Trisana has an overabundance of magic that Tris is set along broadly defined terms: Rain, most often called a weather-witch, and she does work mainly with wind, rain and lightning, then but her magic is with all kinds of elemental currents and waves, such as the force of the tides, earthquakes, seismic energy and convective energy, giving her power over lava, ''all'' fall under earthquakes and the purview of weather.sea.

* FantasyCounterpartCulture: Emelan seems to be the south of France. The other small countries surrounding them are the rest of Europe; Namorn is Russia and Tharios is Greece (with the caste system borrowed from Japan, specifically the geisha and the burakumin). Sotat and nearby countries are west/central Asia. Yanjing is China, and Gyongxe is Tibet. Traders have some elements of the Roma, but their cuisine is definitely Lebanese.

** In addition to Sandry's magic manipulating thread, she can also use it to manipulate ''magic itself'' by visualizing it as thread. Lark specifically states that she's never seen or heard of another ambient mage who can do that, [[spoiler: when explaining to the Duke why Sandry is the only one who can counter the unmagic-using assassins.

** Though that last is {{Justified}}, since would later confirm that Keth's glass magic gives him heat resistance as one of the RequiredSecondaryPowers.

* RealityEnsues: In ''Briar' Book'', Tris and Niko have to investigate the city's AbsurdlySpaciousSewer. Standard fantasy fare... except that they go in wearing protective gear and ''both'' of them freak out at having to wade through knee-deep human waste with unseen lumps occasionally colliding with their boots.
