Questions and Stuff

Firstly I would like to say that I really love the prologue to Crown of Vengeance, it is incredibly well written and just "feels" right. As good as it is on its own if you have never heard it read in the Audiobook by narrator Christopher Lane, you seriously should because it is made even better. That being said I have a questions about some things from the prologue.

1. I have assumed that the Obsidian room and blade are the same here and in the first trilogy, is this in fact the case? And if so has everything else in the World Without Sun remained similarly unchanged in that period of time?

2. Where exactly does the World Without Sun exist? I was given the feeling that it is either far underground or some kind of overlapping hell dimension type deal. If it is the former is it possible to accidently stumble upon it?

3. When Light creates the different types of life, three types are mentioned; Green life, red life, and silver life. I took green life to mean plants and red life to be beasts such as wolves, squirrels, fish, and that sort of creature. I took silver life to mean elves and unicorns for certain, but are there other kinds of silver life? What about creatures that exist later but have comparable intelligence to elves and unicorns like humans, centaurs, and sprites? What about the beastlings and dragons are they all considered silver life too? Or do all those exist instead as red life?

Well since I posted these a couple days ago I ended up finding the answers to my third question. Whether I had simply somehow missed the information in my previous readings or had forgotten the knowledge since my last one I do not know.
I would also like to clarify my second question, I know that the Obsidian Mountain exists physically in the Bright World, but from the vastness that is described in the books it seems to me that the World Without Sun could not be contained in just Obsidian Mountain.
As for my third question about silver life, in Interlude Two it is mentioned that centaurs, bearwargs and a few other species were at least partially silver life, and that unicorns are the embodiment of the Light itself rather than silver life.


The next book in the "Dragon Prophecy" series is Blade of Empire. It will be published by Tor Books at the end of 2017.
