A scene selected from the book.
Visiting other realities written about by the same author leads to several interesting encounters for Dryad. A fan favorite of the author's works is Knowing Gnowing, a series of short stories that is a comedy. For Dryad to visit that reality, it is like a kind of, sort of, additional bonus short story set in that world with her meeting the main protagonist that threads all the various narratives together with his search for "the guy". Dryad's curiosity concerning meeting the gnome and his playfully fun way of speaking leads to a highly enjoyable experience for the audience to see how Ulysses tries to grasp the concept that she is a plant based individual. Therefore, in his mind, she should speak to a farmer, an expert on plants.
“I keep forgetting that your mind is limited in its understanding of the Universe and the possibilities of the potential of what can exist.” – Zoon
“One small step for me, one giant leap for botanical kind.” – Dryad
Before he began writing the previous book, the author was aware of the series of tragic events that would conclude that novel. He was preparing for how it would open up the gateway for Dryad to visit other realities. It was an idea he had been playing around with, that if any book series connected with the multiverse, it would be the Sunfire Chronicles. It was exciting for him to visit the various realities from other storylines that he had previously published.
There was an established plan for this to be the middle book of the trilogy, where the author had prior knowledge that everything would en in tragedy. It was his homage of the the original Star Wars trilogy, where the Empire won against the rebels in the second movie and they lost someone close to them.
Among other details revealed in this book, it confirms an ambiguous ending of the novel: Eye of the Beholder. Is the "cartoon" world real, or just a fictional reality in Logan's mind? Was it just a dream? Dryad's visitation proves it exists.
The author has been fascinated with multiple realities since he was in high school. It has been a long standing beleif that one of the ways one could connect with these other realities was in our dreams. There is an episode of the Justice League the animated series that hinted that the creators of comic books were writing about these other realities. Unknown to them, the stories they were telling actually existed somewhere in the multiverse, as seen in their minds.
Dryad becomes the Knight of the Cosmos, replacing Parallax at the end. This book left several major cliff hangers that took two full books to resolve.
“One, two, mommy is coming for you… Three, four, you are at death’s door… Five, six, no more of your tricks… Seven, eight, she has sealed your fate… Nine, ten, never threaten me again…” – Suzie
