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

Set in an alternate world in the late 2070's and 2080's, the series tells the soul-mate romance stories of couples, underscored with the political dynamics of the alternate world. Most soul-mate couples cross racial lines (e.g., Psy-changeling, leopard-wolf, human-changeling).

The Worldbuilding[edit | edit source]

The premise of the story line involves growing revolutionary movements that threaten to upset the balance of power. In 2079, where the first novel, Slave to Sensation, starts, the Psy have been the dominant global power for almost a hundred years while subjecting themselves to something called Silence. 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. Silence sought to eliminate emotion from the Psy, preventing some of their more unstable members from becoming murderers and allowing their people to use their talents without harming themselves or others. The changelings are divided into packs, and have mostly squabbled over territory, and have no overarching authority between packs, making unifying for a cause difficult. The humans do not have air-tight mental shields like changelings to protect them from the Psy, who in the pursuit of business, have been known to steal brilliant ideas from humans and leave them for destitution.

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. However, the balance has begun to shift, starting with the alliance of two powerful packs in California: the DarkRiver pack based in San Francisco, and the SnowDancer pack controlling the rest of California. Under the surface, though, there's something much more threatening to the stability of the PsyNet and all Psy that's been brewing since Silence was implemented. As the series advances, the Psy rebellion grows in strength, but the powerful Psy purists fight back. Eventually, the PsyNet itself begins to fail in portions, from a degradation that started when humans and emotions were removed from the network. The underlying message of the series is that emotions are a necessary and valuable part of life and love.

Interestingly enough, though the Psy have completely separated from intermarrying with humans and changelings as they did before Silence, they have completely obscured race as we consider it, interbreeding regardless of national or ethnic origins. However, the Psy have isolated themselves according to their own definition of race, refusing to interbreed with changelings or humans.

Races[edit | edit source]

Psy: They appear to be human, but are actually physically weaker. They have a variety of powerful psychic talents (e.g., healing, empathy, telepathy, 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 shapeshifters, mostly leopards and wolves, but also falcons and rats. Each group has their own mental network, an inter-connection of the minds of the top members (alphas and second-in-commands) within each changeling group. They are led by their alphas, though the second-in-commands provide check-and-balance on that power.

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 | edit source]

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 | edit source]

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

  • Cars: Run on energy cells that were invented by the changelings. They can be programmed with a destination and drive themselves to the location. The automatic navigation system only works on streets, not forest area or in parking garages.  
  • Fabric: Synthetic leather is called leather-synth. Common in jackets.  
  • Laz-Fire: Invented by the Psy, it's an energy saving and cheap heater. The generator imitates real fire.
  • Organizer: Miniature computers, and occasionally has proprietary technology. They can fit in a pocket, similar to a smartphone.
