The annihilation of a colony of humans leads Captain Lexia of the Starship Sunfire and her second in command, Parallax, on a journey to discover those responsible. Meanwhile, the remaining crew explores the Universe through the unpredictable behavior of a traveler with extensive knowledge of the past, present, and future.
Two paths of discovery lead to ancient life forms, each appearing to be benevolent in nature, but only one will prove to be an ally.
Lexia must discover who she can trust, who will betray her, and save the lives of all on board the Sunfire before it’s too late.
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 third 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.
An epic battle both on a planet and in orbit between the Cosmic Union and some unknown threat. The Sunfire streaks into the scene, zooming inside the control room where Lexia is casually enjoying a drink as Parallax is intensely focused on dealing with the threats. Then they land as the song ends, the crew disembarks.
This is Lexia's theme song. Nothing is impossible in her mind. She is the kind of person who will leap off a tall building and figure out how she's going to survive on the way down. She's fearless, determined, refusing to accept defeat, and always pushing herself to do the right thing no matter the risk.
In a scene not in the book, Dryad is at a club filled with animal like beings. Near the climax of the song, her eyes glow as her psychic ability affects those around her. Lexia has just worked through the crowd to reach her when she becomes affected. Her, Dryad, and a large group dance together as the song ends.
This song is ideal for the antagonists in the novel, giving them this sense that what they're doing is for the greater good. They come across as benevolent and helpful when in reality they're responsible for horrible atrocities. The haunting tone reflects the utopia that they offer but at such a tragic, horrifying cost.
A year before the book was written, I first heard this song. I knew then how it would end, long before I began writing it. Dryad is trapped, alone, isolated, separated from anyone else with no hope in sight. The song reflects this desperate cry for help, sending out a message, pleading for someone to find her before it’s too late.

Parallax's Paradox : 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.
