There are (at least) two sides to every story. In Queen of Diamonds, not only do differing opinions and ways of life come into play, but so do two alternate worlds.
Leigh and her family are from a small town in Mississippi.
Alexandria, Gideon, and their varied ilk are from El’Anret (boy, really? Haha.), the world of the Faerie.

In El’Anret, the land is divided and named, generally speaking, by the type/tribe of Fae who settled it.
