* XMeetsY: Has the basic premise of TheChroniclesOfNarnia (a small group of humans from earth are pulled into a HighFantasyWorld where they act out a prophesied role) while the world itself is largely derivative of [[TheLordOfTheRings Middle Earth]] at various points in it's history. The whole thing is then made HotterAndSexier (though not to a ridiculous degree, the main difference is that in Fionavar sex is a thing that happens as opposed to the other settings where it's either politely ignored 99.9% of the time in Tolkiens works and in CS Lewis' books sex [[ContractualPurity actually seems to prevent a person from accessing Narnia]]). Finally the overall mythology is given a Celtic flavor rather than the Germanic tone of Middle Earth or the thinly-veiled christian allegory of Narnia.

* CompleteMonster: [[BigBad Rakoth Maugrim]], the Unraveler, is a deity from outside of Fionavar who loathes the world he had no part in making. Long ago, Maugrim arrived in Fionavar and began corrupting what he could with the intention of annihilating the world entirely. After freeing himself, Maugrim captures the heroine Jennifer and, vowing to take everything from her, rapes her, while taking the forms of her father and lovers to destroy all happiness she may have. Aware his rape has gotten her pregnant with his son, thus binding him to Fionavar, Maugrim gives Jennifer to a servant of his to rape and torture for a night as long as he kills her at the end of it. When Jennifer is saved, Maugrim later inflicts a brutal winter on Fionavar, killing many by freezing and starvation, while using his forces to ravage the land. When he meets his son Darien, Maugrim is gleeful about [[OffingTheOffspring a chance to murder him]], vowing to not only to kill him but to ''unmake'' him utterly as to regain his invulnerability.

**[[EvilChancellor Metran, First Mage to the High King of Brennin]], at first seems to be a [[ObfuscatingInsanity harmless, senile old man]]. Revealed as a servant of the aforementioned Rakoth Maugrim, assisting his master in returning from imprisonment, Metran arranges the massacre of heroine Jennifer's soldiers to deliver her to Maugrim to be raped and murdered. In the second book of the trilogy, Metran obtains the Cauldron of Kath Meigol, powering it by [[BadBoss draining the lives of hundreds of minions]], resurrecting them and killing them again to create a killing frost over the lands that dooms many people to die via cold and starvation. Another land suffers a killing rain from Metran's powers, poisoning and killing almost everyone within its borders. When finally killed, Metran is attempting to shift the death rain over to the High Kingdom to wipe it off the map, driven only by his {{greed}}, hunger for power and hatred towards Fionavar.
