* EvilTaintedThePlace: In the third book we discover that the former ruler of Monsea (who was blessed with an astounding ability to make people believe anything he wanted to), left a nasty taint on the kingdom for his daughter to deal with when she assumes the throne. The good old king in addition to being CursedWithAwesome, was a creepy sadist who had a favorite past time was to go a torturin' his subjects with his gifts. The fall out of having literally hundreds of people mentally tortured into believing things, leaves the new ruler with the problem of having the occasional person or two go completely nuts out of the blue. Needless to say, she tires of it real quick.

** Being a human monster. ''Especially'' if you're a woman. Everyone objectifies you for your beauty, and you constantly have to watch for people who want to (sexually) assault you. Oh, and monster animals hunger for your flesh.
