Tropes found in her works include:

  • Cut Short: The Age of X series was left incomplete due to Mead's publishers cancelling the third book, The Eye of Andromeda; Mead stated that low sales were the reason the book never saw the light of day.
  • Development Hell: The Eye of Andromeda is currently stuck here. Mead has stated she would like to finally complete the Age of X series, especially with the amount of fan interest, but her publisher is unwilling to pick up the third book due to the previous books not selling well. Mead has considered self-publishing The Eye of Andromeda, but has stated she's busy writing contracted books (which she's legally obligated to complete), so The Eye of Andromeda remains on-hold.
