The MYTHOS BEHIND THE CAUSAL ENCHANTMENT SERIES
From there, the universe of all universes was born. I'll try to explain the basics in the most simplest of terms because it's hard to describe 275K worth of a world into one small post J I also don't want to reveal too much about the plot.
At the very top are "The Fates" (I'll note that there are hints of a higher power but nothing has been revealed yet...). The Fates are the beings who govern over the worlds. They are all powerful but they are also bored, which makes for some not-so-nice decisions. The reader finally gets to meet the Fates in ALLEGIANCE. I think those scenes are some of my favorite in this series.
The paranormal creatures - your common vampire and werewolf - as well as the unique abominations like the Tribe and Wraith, are all created at the hands of the Fates in response to Causal Enchantment spells cast by powerful sorceresses like Sofie. These responses are typically nothing like the sorceress has requested, the Fates taking the need and twisting into something accurate but so perverse in nature that no one comes out happy. Except for the Fates, because it's one big game for them. A game where each one vies to win with their "pawns". Okay, really... that's all I'm going to tell you.
The other key to this world is that anything goes. There is no such thing as gravity, time, and finality of death when it's in the hands of the Fates. They can move people from one world to the next, they can erase memories, transplant bodies. They can even bring people back from the dead. J
