This is a work in progress. It is incomplete and as of yet not fact checked.

Set in an alternate San Francisco in the 2070's and 2080's, the series tells the soul-mate romance stories of couples from the following racial groups, listed in order of their power. Most soul-mate couple crosses species lines (e.g., Psy-changeling, leopard-wolf, human-changeling).

The Worldbuilding Edit

The premise of the story line involves growing revolutionary movements that threaten to upset the balance of power. One series theme is the contrast between the ever-growing Psy-Web of the changelings and the dying Net of the Psy.

Races Edit

The Psy: They appear to be human, but are not. They have a variety of powerful psychic talents (e.g., healing, empathy, teleportation, telekinesis) and must always be connected to the PsyNet, an interconnection of the minds of all Psy, or they die. They are led by the Psy Council, which is a cynical, corrupt and power-hungry group that connects through the PsyNet.

Changelings: These are the shape shifters, mostly leopards and wolves, but also falcons and rats. They are connected by the Web, an inter-connection of the minds of the top members (alphas and sentinels) within each changeling group. They are led by their alphas (Hawke—SnowDancer wolves—and Lucas—DarkRiver leopards.

Humans:  This is the weakest group, generally at the mercy of the Psy. They are led by the Human Alliance, a mysterious and violent group that works tirelessly for human domination.

Medical Advancement Edit

Medics of all races uses scanners to diagnose injury and disease. Doctors are often referred to as medics unless they are surgeons. Neurosurgery and vascular surgery is far ahead of the surgical techniques at the beginning of the 21st century. Fractures and wounds heal much faster, especially for the changeling races. There are certain Psy who can heal on the cellular level - Judd Lauren is one when he uses his Psy powers to heal himself and sometimes others. The Aleines can work at the DNA level, sometimes to heal. Ashaya Aleine helps her mate Dorian be able to shift into his leopard form by working with his DNA.

Technical Advancement Edit

There are several advances which have been made. Some include:

  • Laz-Fire: invented by the Psy, it's an energy saving and cheap heater. The generator imitates real fire.

Word Market Edit

One hundred years ago, the Psy Council found itself faced with a growing number of killers, driven insane by their inability to live a normal life while trying to control their powerful psychic abilities. The Council decided to strip Psy citizens of all emotions (the Silence), allowing them to use their talents without harming their minds. As the series begins, an ever-growing number of Psy are revolting against both the Silence and the Council itself. The changelings have always hated the supremacy of the Psy, but a successful business alliance has evolved between the two groups so that they have, on the surface, a relatively civil relationship. The humans also hate the Psy, and their leaders have begun trying to take down the Psy Council. As the series advances, the Psy rebellion grows in strength, but the powerful Psy purists fight back. Eventually, the Psy-Net itself becomes degraded and parts of it begin to fail.

The series story line involves growing revolutionary movements that threaten to upset the balance of power. Most soul-mate couple crosses species lines (e.g., Psy-changeling, leopard-wolf, human-changeling), and one series theme is the contrast between the ever-growing Psy-Web of the changelings and the dying Net of the Psy. Because each couple must overcome great personal difficulties before mating, the scenes with the highest sensuality come in the final third of most of the books, with the exception of book 6, which has scenes of graphic sex scattered throughout. The underlying message of the series is that emotions are a necessary and valuable part of life and love.
