These are what we call the 'YMMV items.' Things that some people find in this work. We call them 'your mileage might vary' because not everyone sees these things in the same way. This starts discussions in the trope lists, a thing we don't want. Please use the discussion page if you'd like to discuss any of these items.
Evil Is Sexy: 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 Telar race.
Suetiful All Along: 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?
