Tropes in her other works:

  • Death of the Old Gods: The Bridei Chronicles series has this, it's set in Scotland and England during their conversion from paganism to Catholicism.
  • Expansion Pack Past: Faolan from The Bridei Chronicles. In the first book, he's a spy and bodyguard with a Mysterious Past. In the second and third books, we find out that he started out as a bard in Ireland, then became an assassin, then was in prison for awhile, then somehow made his way to Scotland and made a career there. Despite all that, he's still in his 20s. There doesn't seem to have been time for him to actually do everything he's supposed to have done, particularly given the time it must have taken for a member of an enemy tribe to win the trust of the Priteni king.
  • Selkies and Wereseals: Watcher in Foxmask is a descendant of a selkie mother and a human father.
  • The Sociopath: Somerled from Wolfskin. He commits genocide, fratricide and rape, has no empathy, and his only reaction to human pain and sufering is mild curiosity. He also thinks Despotism Justifies the Means
