After recovering from a near death experience, the unconscious mind of Dryad becomes the gateway into other realities. The multiverse awaits her.
In a galaxy far away, a powerful new threat is born from hatred towards those responsible for a tortured existence. Revenge becomes a guiding force for an unrelenting living weapon.
As events unfold far beyond her control, Captain Lexia of the Starship Sunfire attempts to prevent what has been set into motion. As the barriers between realities are pierced, the fate of the Universe rests upon the actions of an unlikely crew of misfits, refugees, and lost souls.
Music often inspires scenes, helps mold the tone of a narrative, and in some cases, defines a character.
What follows is a collection of songs that are the soundtrack to this novel.
This is the opening for the fourth season of the Sunfire Chronicles as a television series. The opening credits of each season will reflect the changing cast of characters and allow for the opportunity to make numerous references to pop culture when it comes to science fiction and sci-fi, as well as introduce the characters.
The opening of the book visually would be this song playing with flashbacks to what happened at the end of the previous novel. It cuts to Dryad recovering from those events and having moments of waking in other realities. It becomes a montage of struggling to recover while coping with these visions of the multiverse.
The song, Who Will Save You Now, starts out as this somber, sorrow sounding melody speaking of survival. This inspired the entire story arc involving Parallax in the first third of the book and her dealings with the Oria. When it becomes intense, that is her anger, her hatred lashing out at those who tortured her for the last time.
This song will play at the conclusion, the final scene as it reveals the aftermath of all that has occurred. The lyrics works on so many levels, setting the tone for the conclusion of this story. It represents the sorrow of loss, the determination to keep going forward and to reclaim all that has been lost. This is not the end.

Dryad's Dream : The Movie
Jim can portray the innocence and curiosity that this character is often motivated by. He can bring forth a genuine humanity to what would be a rigidly robotic role. He could play that fine line between being reserved and exploring emotional connections. Brent’s persona would play so well with this actor’s strengths.
Dryad is one of those characters that opens up a world of wonders for an actress in that the character is constantly developing, learning, and exploring new aspects of her personality as well as growing list of talents. Francesca has that wide eyed, innocent look to her that is ideal for this unique individual.
He can be the action hero persona, but also portray a man who lets immediate concerns be like background noise that he ignores as he stays focused on the objective. He can show that yearning to be more emotional and expressive, but still show that reserved uncertainty that would fit Glen so well.
The character would need a voice actor with a rumbling voice. His portrayal of the robot in the Iron Giant would be ideal in that this inhuman character proves to be compassionate with this rumbling voice. It would be a challenge to maintain a relatively monotone voice yet reveal emotional depth.
She has proven in another role to be able to portray herself as a bratty, self-centered, and verbally abusive little girl. Using that as a foundation, she can take her attitude a step forward with a heartless, murderer. I think her previous role set her up for some experience and the role of Suzie would be her next challenge.
