** [[spoiler: Numbria]] is skinned and then eaten alive by [[spoiler: Cradle!Sita]] after being tied to a bed with a special alloy she cannot escape and having many broken bones. The worst part is, because [[spoiler: Sita]] can't talk about what she's done, most of the details are left [[http://http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/GoryDiscretionShot to the reader's imagination.]] Even worse when you think about the fact that the victim is Telar and can last an extremely long time without dying.

* LeaveNoWitnesses: The main way Sita has remained alive for so long is that anyone who knows her secret and threatens to reveal it dies. Examples include [[http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/EstablishingCharacterMoment Ray's father]] and the secret facility in "Red Dice".

* SuperWindowJump: Averted. Both Sita and two telar pretend to jump out of windows by throwing furniture out of them to deceive each other into thinking they've left. It doesn't work.

Added DiffLines:

* MeaningfulName / PropheticNames: Several instances in the series.
** Yaksha is named for a class of nature spirit, which are sometimes benevolent but about as often evil.
** Sita and her human husband, Rama, are named for the protagonists of the Ramayana. This is even more fitting (or prophetic) given that a major chunk of the Ramayana's plot is about Prince Rama's quest to rescue Princess Sita from the demon who has abducted her.
** Kalika is named for the goddess Kali, who [[spoiler: she is implied to be an avatar of]].

The protagonist is the vampire Sita, who was the lieutenant of the first vampire, Yaksha, as well as the target of his affections. Thousands of years ago, Yaksha created a whole army of vampires and intended to take over the world, only to be stopped by TheMessiah (Krishna), who made him vow to destroy all of the vampires as penance. The first novel begins with Yaksha's quest nearly completed, in modern times, with only he and Sita still alive. The novels show Sita's relationships with humans and battles with enemies that are more powerful than her. Though it all, she just wants to have a family, having lost her original family when she became a vampire 5,000 years ago. Each volume offers a mix of present day action, and flashbacks to previous eras in Sita's life (sometimes hundreds of years in the past.)

* MayflyDecemberRomance: Happens with pretty much every romance Sita has, since she is a vampire and other vampires are quite rare. Emphasized because TheMessiah made her take a vow to create no more vampires, so she can't turn any of her human lovers. Exacerbated by her CartwrightCurse.

* TheMessiah: Krishna and John both fit this trope.

* ILoveYouBecauseICantControlYou: Arguably a large part of why Yaksha was attracted to Sita. From day one, she seems less than susceptible to the charm that makes all the other people in their village trust him utterly. Shee tends to defy him and run counter to his wishes.

* UnrequitedLoveLastsForever: Seemingly played straight with Yaksha and Sita, until we find out (a) [[spoiler she really did love him, in a way]] and (b) [[spoiler: that he never stopped loving her but still fell in love with another woman, married, and had a kid]].
