Bonus Scene: Not Found In Book
In a movie/television presentation of Emerald Intrigue, the story goes beyond the conclusion of the book with the song "Run Boy Run" as mentioned earlier on this page. It shows the pair of mothers with their children, the triples in dragon form, bounding around like excited puppies. One leaps at Emannuel, transforming suddenly into human form as she catches the baby. At one point, it shows Kaida running alongside two of the dragons, able to keep up with their speed in her human form. Then she begins transforming, revealing her dragon form for the first time for those watching. It's a way to wow the audience with a visual of this dragon family and a hint of what is to come in the next story.
Where would the Author make a cameo?
Stan Lee is notorious for making a cameo in movies and television series based off his written works. With that in mind, where would the author of this novel make an appearance in a visual adaptation of the book?
There is a scene in a restaurant where an elf is speaking to a mysterious stranger who has insight in how to get a large crate out of the city without being detected by Silvermane. A keen eye can see the author sitting among the patrons who are unaware of the conversation taking place between the pair. He appears again as Emmannuelle walks past those seated in the train to meet with the elf that is smuggling the cargo out of the city. He looks up at her with a smile.
