* ThemeNaming: It is traditional for lamia to be named after natural things (birds, plants or precious stones); ie. Rowan, Kestrel, Jade, Garnet, Lily, Dove, Hunter (all of whom belong to the Redfern clan). There is also the tradition of any werecreature being named after whatever animal s/he happens to be able to change into in his/her native language.

* GoodWitchVersusBadWitch: In ''Spellbinder'', Thea (the good witch) is fighting with Blaise (the bad witch) for Eric. Played with in that Blaise is more of an AntiHero than truly evil and ''Thea'' actually breaks several witch laws opposing her. A straighter example would Thea vs the real BigBad: a vengeful witch spirit named Suzanne she accidentally released.

* TheNineties: The series was first published in the 1990's and is presumably set then, with [[UnintentionalPeriodPiece the upcoming millennium being a plot point in later books and references to 90's pop culture]]. Some later additions of the books tried to update the setting by switching out words like "Walkman" for "iPod", but the majority of fans accept The90's as the series' setting (including on [[TheWikiRule the wiki]] and most editions stick with this.

* DidTheyOrDidntThey / GRatedSex: In ''Spellbinder'', thereís a scene late in the book where Eric and Thea end up falling into each other arms in a secluded spot near the desert after declaring their love for each other. Itís mentioned that ďsome timeĒ passes before the action picks up again and theyíre lying in each otherís arms, and although itís never made explicitly clear that anything sexual happened, itís quite easy to interpret it this way.
