* FiveRaces: The gods created Huanin, Kyrinin, Anain, Saolin and Whreinin, although they don't fit the standard five races mold.


The titular world was abandoned by its gods long ago, after the Huanin (humans) and Kyrinin (elves, but [[OurElvesAreBetter notably different]]) rose up to destroy the Whreinin (wolf people).

* [[OurElvesAreBetter Our Elves Are Different]]: The Kyrinin are somewhat similar in appearance to Tolkienesque elves, but during the events of the story, live tribal lives, and can be quite savage. Nevertheless, they are described as graceful, and beautiful, though the tattoos they wear and their primitive dress can take away from that.

The trilogy features some excellent world-building, realistic characters and a dark yet very gripping narrative. Though relatively unknown, it is highly recommended.

* ForWantOfANail: The story is essentially kicked off because the king of the bloods decided to 'depopulate' the northern bloods of warriors (By using them as cannon fodder during a drawn out siege that could normally be ended through less violent means), as punishment for their refusal to be bootlicking sycophants ([[spoiler: and feared no reprecussions because the king was secretly negotiating with the king of the Black Road bloods to ensure that there would never be another war between the two]]). The fact that there are nowhere near enough warriors left in the north present to hold back the Black Road (Which had been the sole purpose for the existence of these northern bloods since the exile of the Black Road) is what emboldens the Black Road to attack.
