What I like best about Ruin Mist is how expansive it is and how much is explored in the books. A lot of times authors make you wait forever to explore far off parts of the world but that's not true with RS. He lets readers explore vast areas of Ruin Mist as the books progress.
I've always wondered if it should be called a multiverse rather than a world. The way RS describes it: "three realms" leads me to believe it is three separate worlds. It is over earth, under earth as well as the kingdoms and the reaches and you get to over earth and under earth via magic gates.
I agree completely the worlds are connected with very different rules and laws. Robert Stanek describes under earth as having bloodred skies and lacking stars, moon and sun. Vilmos's experiences there make it seem so very different from the world of the kingdoms.
