!!''The Sister Verse and the Devouring Glass'' contains examples of:

* ApocalypticLog: The logs from the Carcosa survey team, all of whom are driven to a paranoid insanity by whatever lives there. Also applies to the Crest special operators trying to infiltrate Lao-Va, who were likely tortured until they became darklings.

* ConditionedToAcceptHorror: This seems to be what’s happening to Elliot, who apparently had no problem showing a fourteen-year-old girl how to execute someone with the handgun he just bought for her. Even Diana finds it unlike him.

* DrivenToSuicide: [[spoiler: Diana essentially tries to kill herself by obliterating her shadow. It doesn’t work, but the only thing keeping her from violently destabilizing is her armor.]]

* EldritchLocation: Lao-Va is a sentient, living organism that changes its architecture depending on who’s inside it, and how much it wants to screw with them. Honorable mentions go to Carcosa, the Lunar Fortress, and basically the entire Dreadlands.

* TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt: [[spoiler: In the final chapter, the world starts to disintegrate, signifying the coming end of Diana’s story, and supposedly that of all creation.]]

* {{Gorn}}: As soon as the party gets to Lao-Va, things get wet.

* LostTechnology: Singer spends most of the book recovering the Crest infrastructure so he can manufacture an army of drones.

* MindRape: The fate of [[spoiler: Veronica]], who summoned the Lord in White in order to become a darkling, without knowing that psychopaths are useless to it.

* MiseryBuildsCharacter: Everyone goes through their own grueling trial in Lao-Va until they finally accept [[spoiler:or destroy]] their shadows, granting them a better understanding of who they really are.

* {{Shapeshifting}}: Used by the Lord in White to assume the party’s appearance, and [[spoiler: kill everyone in Kaylee’s high school]], making Diana and the others wanted fugitives.

* ShoutOut: ''Film/AlienS'', ''Literature/TheHungerGames'', ''Literature/TheKingInYellow''.

* TheSociopath: [[spoiler: Veronica, who tries to sacrifice Kaylee and her sister as her act of passion in the darkling rite.]]

* SurrealHorror: Ramped UpToEleven in this. Even the comparatively mundane parts of the book are weird.

* TomeOfEldritchLore: The party learns early on that they’re trapped inside the Sister Verse.

* WithGreatPowerComesGreatInsanity: Diana notes that she’s been slowly losing it ever since she began her quest.

* YouCannotGraspTheTrueForm: Whatever it is that’s living in the sewers of Lao-Va. The longer you look at them, the more their appearance reveals itself as your brain slowly adjusts to them.
