* KeepReading: PlayedForLaughs in the tenth and last book. Brys Beddict receives a letter from his brother and asks one of his aides to read it aloud, in case it contains vital information. Bad idea. In typical Tehol Beddict fashion, the letter begins with "Dearest brother, have you slept with her yet?" Cue sheepish silence in the command tent. But since the damage is already done, Brys bids his aide to continue.

* BreakTheHaughty: the Queen of Lether is introduced as a powerful, gorgeous woman who's political influence is somewhat greater than her much older husband. After helping start a war with the artiste Edur for her own amusement, she and her son are defeated, captured and exposed to chaos magic that literally twists her into a hideous snake thing that is kept alive as a demonstration of the King in Chains power. To top it off, due to her near immobility she grows obese.
