This story is set in the Afterverse, a parallel world where legends, myths, and fairy tales all really happened. The whole history of this reality is made up of stories. There's a lot more to it than just the part you'll see in this book. If you want to learn more, look up the Beaumont and Beasley fairy-tale fantasy series on Amazon. That said, you don't have to have be familiar with those books in order to enjoy this one. (There will be fun surprises for fans of the B&B series along the way, though.)
One other thing--even though the Afterverse's history is loosely "parallel" to ours, there are a lot of differences. For example, Neverica's version of the Civil War was fought for different reasons, and the slave trade never happened in this world. These divergences stem from the fact that magic and magical creatures are real in the Afterverse. They're not an attempt on my part to gloss over real historical tragedies. This is a very different, fictional world, and none of its history should be interpreted as political or philosophical commentary. It's just entertainment.
(That disclaimer probably wasn't necessary, but I thought I should throw it in just in case.)
Anyway, enough of my blathering. I'm handing things over to Todd now.
But don't believe anything he says. He's a crook.
