* TheBechdelTest: This series contains exactly two male characters of any importance, one of whom appears in only a handful of scenes. Needless to say, it passes with flying colors. In fact, you'd be hard pressed to find an incidence of it passing a ''reverse'' Bechdel Test, given that Eclipse and Jaguar spend most of their scenes together talking about Mirage, the witches, or [[spoiler: Mirei]].

* BlondeGuysAreEvil: Eclipse averts this trope hardcore.


Added DiffLines:

* WalkingSpoiler: There is a ''reason'' [[spoiler: Mirei's name]] is spoiler-tagged throughout this entry. It's pretty easy to infer [[spoiler: the main resolution of the first book's plot]] just from seeing it. This isn't helped by the fact that it's just thrown around casually by the second book's jacket summary. *facepalm*

* OnlyKnownByTheirNickname/RedBaron: Hunters. They have names like Mirage, Eclipse, Jaguar, Avalanche, Ice, and Talon.

Interestingly, Mirage and Eclipse, having known each other for as long as they have, still call each other by their old names.

* HeroWorshipper: Deconstructed/subverted/''something'' with Indera, who first wants to be just like Mirage and thinks she can do no wrong. But after she finds out about [[spoiler: Mirei being a witch and the fact that Mirage as such no longer exists]], she feels that Mirage has betrayed her and refuses to stay in her presence. This causes a few problems.
