A novel by Jennifer Crusie and Bob Mayer.
Welcome to Dreamland Adventure Park! We've got the best ice cream to be found anywhere, a fortune telling booth that's very accurate, the Dragon Roller Coaster, and everyone loves the Tunnel of Love, right?
- Devil in Plain Sight: It's obvious to the reader early on, if not the characters, that Joe is really Fufluns.
- Disney Owns This Trope: one ride at the park bears a significant resemblance to the It's A Small World Ride. Frequently prompts the question, "Hawaii is a country?"
- The Glasses Gotta Go: Mab likes it when Oliver has his off.
- Grand Theft Me: Fufluns does this to Young Fred's Empty Shell body so he can be the official Trickster of the Guardia.
- Heroic Lineage: most Guardia members are related to/descended from each other.
- Human Mom, Non-Human Dad: interesting variation on this. Ethan and Mab were both produced by human parents, but both their dads were possessed by Kharos at the time of conception, giving them a bit of mutant power. Mab got a double dose because her mother was possessed by Vanth at the time as well. Presumably baby Delphie will have a triple dose of demon exposure.
- Long Lost Sibling: Ethan and Mab have the same demon father, if not biological parents. Uh, whatever that means. Possibly Half-Identical Twins, since Glenda notices a strong resemblance between the two, and since they were conceived on the same night, they have similar birthdays.
- Mood Ring Eyes: Indicate when a demon's inside someone or something or if your parent(s) were possessed by a demon while having sex.
- Technical Pacifist: Oliver would prefer to keep demons alive for study purposes, but is well aware of the difficulties of this.
