Why is it the whole fantasy creatures are usually the same in every book? Dragons are either the evil creatures that are meant to be slain or that must be trained. Unicorns are beautiful horse-like creatures that can always be ridden by pretty girls. Elves are basically humans with pointy ears, are sometimes short, and live forever. Werewolves are always man-eating people who forget everything as soon as they turn back into humans. Give me something new here, people!
