How Does Treasured Claim tie in to the Mythos World?
(Warning: Potential Spoilers Below…)
Treasured Claim takes place entirely on Earth, the only home Elaina has known, but Elaina’s mentor hints at the fact that Mythos exists. He references their former homeland and that faeries were involved with its loss. In addition, knights seem to have inherent memories of that homeland, with the mention of the Mythos sky and stars.
Readers see how easily dragons can control metal, which would be dangerous to any race vulnerable to certain types of metal.
Readers learn that Elaina’s “changeling” hair is not normally a trait of dragons—but of faeries.
Elaina’s magic, where she seems to communicate with inanimate objects to some extent, alludes to the nature of the Mythos plane and its elemental spirits.
The Drakish language builds on aspects of many Eastern European languages, such as Albanian, Croatian, Czech, Romanian, etc. All of the details, from Elaina’s apartment and Chicago transit options to the Hungary setting and Bahamas location, were based on real facts as well.
The Pinterest board above contains images of the boats and cottage of the private island. That setting was based on a 33-acre private island in the Bahamas available for sale (for $7 million!) at the time Jami was writing the story. The real estate page is no longer available, but luckily, she saved some pictures to share…
