Added DiffLines:

* WeaksauceWeakness: Since vampires are allergic to garlic, and werewolves to basil, ''pesto sauce'' provides a measure of protection against both. [[InvokedTrope Which is why Italy invented it.]]

* WhatIfTheBabyIsLikeMe: Downplayed; while Alexia is concerned about her baby turning out preternatural, it's not the prospect of the condition itself that bothers her, so much as the fact that preternaturals are repelled from each other. Which would be rather uncomfortable, to say the least.

Added DiffLines:

* AcquiredPoisonImmunity: {{Downplayed|Trope}} in that the substance is not strictly ''toxic'', but merely ''very unpleasant'', but one vampire overcomes the species' repulsion to citrus this way. [[spoiler:Lord Akeldama did this entirely for the purpose of putting lemon in his tea.]]

* TheKnightsTemplar: Apparently, the order was really into slaying supernatural creatures. [[spoiler:Alessandro Tarabotti in particular was a result of a breeding program set up by the Templars to make specialized hunters...which didn't exactly work.]]

* MustBeInvited: When the residence of the Westminster Hive is destroyed, Lord Akeldama refuses to invite the now-homeless vampires into his home because that act would mystically "sign over" his home to them. [[spoiler: However, he's willing to let Alexia make that mistake -- largely because it forced the Westminster Hive to relocate to Woolsey Castle outside of London.]] It's implied that this may not be the ''only'' way; when Countess Nasdasny is told that there is a new home for the Hive, her question is "who do we have to kill".
