  • The book was originally scheduled to be released on July 17, 2018, but was delayed to September 11 of the same year.
  • In the book's timeline, it is set before the events of season 1 down to when the book was burned by Ludo/Toffee in season 3 of "Book Be Gone".
    • It even shows the pages Ludo tried to write in for his chapter but couldn't because of not being the owner.
  • According to Daron's note in the book sleeve, after the book was burned, a piece of the remains was taken and then reconstructed every page from one of Glossaryck's silkworms.
  • Solaria's chapter includes "Monster Annihilation Techniques", a guide to kill certain species of monsters. The guide also showcases Solaria's absolute hatred toward monsters and her belief that they welcome death:
    • Lizard Men (Septarians): "Not sure what to do with these ones. ...Best to explode them and spread the pieces as far apart as possible. They are happier this way."
    • Slime Men: "Do not touch these slippery beasts. A spell worked from far away is advised, possibly something that burns them to a crisp or sends them to another dimension. They are so much happier this way."
    • Kappas: "A cowardly mean-spirited sort. A simple disembowelment spell will make them rue the day they were brought into this world. I promise they are happier this way."
    • Frog Men: "These creatures deserve no mercy. To end their miserable existence, you must mince them into tiny pieces. Believe me when I say that they are happier this way."
    • Conjoinicans: "These creatures, too, deserve no mercy. They are an abomination to the ever after. To end their miserable existence, you must flambe them with your sword wand. They are most definitely happier this way."
