The books are set in an [[AlternateUniverse alternate universe]]where UsefulNotes/TheSpaceRace was a biotechnology race instead, and various supernatural beings known collectively as "Inderlanders" have [[{{Masquerade}} lived alongside mundane humans since ancient times]], but kept their identities secret from the masses. In the 1960s, a virus called the [[ThePlague T4 Angel]] was accidentally released, attached itself to a genetically modified tomato, was transported worldwide, and wiped out a quarter of the human population in an event known as "The Turn". Since the Inderlanders were mostly unaffected by the virus and found their combined numbers were now close to that of humanity's, [[TheUnmasquedWorld they decided to reveal themselves to the world]], a move that further changed the already altered post-pandemic society.

** Rachel favorite expression when things get complicated is "Crap on toast," unsurprising given that she's not too fond of stronger language. Trent catches himself using it as well in "Million-Dollar Baby." She temporarily upgrades to "shit on crap" when things get ''really'' bad.

Added DiffLines:

* DestructiveSaviour: Early on in ''Pale Demon'', through the use of very strong magic, Rachel and Trent (due to trying to save Trent from assassins and [[spoiler: due to releasing the AxCrazy uber-demon Ku'Sox in a convoluted scheme to help Rachel]]), respectively, cause ''the near-total collapse of the St. Louis Gateway Arch.'' All by accident, of course.

* BlondGuysAreEvil: Trent Kalamack, though becoming father to two daughters has shifted him some along the sliding scale of good vs evil especially as he is shown to be a [[GoodParents good dad]].
