* EvilIsSexy: Subverted in the second book in that the distinguishing feature of the antagonist was his face full of acne scars; one woman said, when interviewed, that she'd rather kill herself than be with him. Played straight if you consider Yaksha or Sita evil, and also with the physically beautiful but apparently cruel [[spoiler: Telar]] race.
* FanPreferredCouple: Most fans seem to ship Sita/Yaksha.
* SuetifulAllAlong: Although Sita is emotionally flawed, her physical powers expand to the point of absurdity. How can narrative tension be maintained when the heroine can successfully take on pretty much anyone/anything, and continues to remind the audience of her power at every opportunity?
