* SeriesContinuityError: With thirty two years passing between the writing of the third and fourth book, these abound. Suddenly, there is no difference between picking up on sendings that are color patterns and sendings that are words. Very few humans can pick up on the sendings of dragons, to the point where it's commonly assumed that this is impossible. [[spoiler: The cave people are now all called 'trogs' without so much as being named that.]] Insects are able to send, if weakly. Being able to psychically tell a dragon what to do is an unheard-of and disturbing thing. The triplets all came from one egg. All water blocks sendings. Jakkin has totally forgiven Erikkin for selling him out. Dragons are no longer mentally {{Starfish Alien}}s, but are clearly less intelligent and capable than humans and do not have senses of humor beyond slapstick.

* TheHeart: In ''A Sending of Dragons'', while helping Jakkin with a plan Sssargon proudly declares that he is Jakkin's eyes. The Tri say that they are his ears. Sssasha, always more deliberate and patient but often somewhat wiser, tells him "I am thy heart."



* SlapSlapKiss: Jakkin and Akki's burgeoning relationship in the first two books could be interpreted as this.



* SameSexTriplets: The three hatchlings Tri-sss, Tri-sssha, and Tri-ssskkette are, unlike their siblings who hatched at the same time, basically identical and all girls.
* SequelGap: ''Dragon's Heart''.



* ShoutOut: The Federation seems ostensibly derived from Franchise/StarTrek.

The story takes place ALongTimeAgoInAGalaxyFarFarAway, on the harsh desert planet of Austar IV. Once used to dispose of criminals, Austar IV has now flourished, under a system of masters and 'bonders', a lower class that has to pay a bond price to rise up in the world. The books mainly revolves around Jakkin Stewart, a worker at a dragon farm run by the mysterious Master Sarkkhan. He steals a dragon egg and manages to raise the hatchling, named Heart's Blood, into one of the greatest Pit fighters the world has ever seen.
