* FlingALightIntoTheFuture: In ''City of Bones,'' the Krismen (humanoid marsupials resistant to poison, drought, and desert sun) were created so that at least something mostly human would be able to survive in the wasteland consuming the known world. (And then it turned out that normal humans could live on the fringes of it just fine, so now the Krismen are a hated underclass whenever they leave the desert to do business in the cities.)

! Tropes found in her works include:
* BlackAndGrayMorality: ''Death of the Necromancer'' has [[AntiVillain Nicholas]] [[AristocratsAreEvil Valiarde,]] a coldblooded thief, murderer and all around MagnificentBastard. Nic has spent years sabotaging his enemy on a RoaringRampageOfRevenge; at the start of the narrative, Nic's nearing the completion of his [[EvilPlan ultimate scheme]] when he and his subordinates run afoul of an unknown person using BlackMagic. Somehow, this leads to the group spending the rest of the book fighting an insane mass murderer. And the reason they do it is at least partly because it's ''bad for business.''
* ChekhovMIA: Nicholas Valiarde in the ''Fall of Ile-Rien'' trilogy.
* FantasyGunControl: Averted in ''Death of the Necromancer''. Guns exist side-by-side with knights, swordplay, and magic (including that of the eponymous necromancer). The prequel, "The Element of Fire," has a quasi-Elizabethan setting, and the protagonist uses a wheel-lock gun in the first chapter.
* FlingALightIntoTheFuture: In ''City of Bones,'' the Krismen (humanoid marsupials resistant to poison, drought, and desert sun) were created so that at least something mostly human would be able to survive in the wasteland consuming the known world. (And then it turned out that normal humans could live on the fringes of it just fine, so now the Krismen are a hated underclass whenever they leave the desert to do business in the cities.)
* FramingTheGuiltyParty: In ''The Death of the Necromancer'', one of the villains framed an innocent man for murder and necromancy. As a consequence, the hero[[note]]the adopted son of the condemned man[[/note]] spends the novel trying to frame him, so that he too will be executed for a crime he didn't commit. [[spoiler: The hero finally tricks him into shooting a magically animated corpse.]]
* GeometricMagic: In ''The Fall of Ile-Rien'' the wizards are busy reverse-engineering a kind of "travelling circle"-spell, where altering the symbols lets you go to different places and worlds.
