* AmazingTechnicolorPopulation: The feas.



* PettingZooPeople[=/=]AmazingTechnicolorPopulation: The feas.


All the characters are PettingZooPeople, with some resemblance to cats, and many have mistaken the main alien race, the feas, to be CatFolk. Also, due to the [[AmazingTechnicolorPopulation multicoloured nature]] of the feas, coming in every single colour imaginable, times two, the main characters are ColorCodedForYourConvenience. Although things can get a little confusing with Kajiya and her brother Resurge- they're both blue.

* PaleFemalesDarkMales: Partially; while it is possible to have a dark female and a light male, this is true of a fea's <i>stripes</i>, being that a female's stripes are <i>always</i> lighter than her base fur colour, while a male's stripes are always <i>darker</i>. Averted and [[LampshadeHanging lampshaded]] with [[spoiler: Sarka and her brother, Orn. It's heavily implied that this applies to their entire family and is a genetic mutation.]]

There are confirmed to be three books in the series so far, with ''Damage'' and ''Healing'' released, to be followed by ''Redemption''.

Fun fact: the author does her own cover art. Hence, Kajiya thinks SleevesAreForWimps due to RuleOfCool. Slightly justified as leaked concepts for the second book reveal that Kajiya would rather come face to face with a taic than wear sleeves. She ''hates'' to have to cover her magik's mark. BareYourMidriff is also slightly justified- Mysterium has two suns.

The story revolves around Kajiya, the first female fea to be marked as a [[TheChosenOne magik]], the next leader of her Tribe Mirabilia. She JumpedAtTheCall and fell flat on her face. She managed not only to put her best friend and one of Mirabilia's best hunters, Gaorun in danger, but her overreaction at the high council's punishment, [[spoiler:(revoking her right to lead) causes her to be banished from Mirabilia!]] She then gathers up her FiveManBand and sets off to regain her honor. Too bad the BigBad decides Kajiya would be better off dead. They struggle to get supplies when the Assembly takes control of the only nearby source of water, and Kajiya’s [[BroughtDownToNormal magic suddenly gives out]]. Finally they manage to travel over the mountains and reach the far side of the continent. They manage to construct a boat, and leave with seconds to spare. But they soon find themselves at the mercy of the current, and strain themselves trying to reach the island of Ainee. Just as they spot the [[EliteArmy warriors,]] they reach the island, and safety. The next day, they set out to explore the island. It doesn’t take them long to find the original reason why Kajiya chose the island as their destination- it is the resting place of the blakeslee, giant stone golems created by magic during the great wars. Kajiya, however holds the IdiotBall for a moment when she knocks one on the head to see if it’ll wake up. [[WhatCouldPossiblyGoWrong Bad idea.]] And then the author decides to be mean and gives us a CliffHanger ending. Book 2, Healing begins exactly where Damage left off.
