The third volume of the Flight Series begins with an intergalactic war. By the time of the French Revolution, the forces in the galaxy no longer play games and Pierre pieces together the meaning of Metatron's Cube. A young boy with a peg-leg, Pierre becomes even more savvy when he joins a band of gypsies camping in the Pyrenees Mountains. Working closely with Lafayette, he pioneers new advances in military technology and meets with scientists from the French Academy.
Pierre continues the Avalon mission when he reluctantly becomes King of France by default. With Rousseau's help, he spiritualizes the role, bringing democracy to the European continent on the heels of the American Revolution. His network extends to Sweden and New Orleans. Leaving France in the hands of the gypsies, he works with the surviving Peacocks of the American Revolution. All the Eagles from the revolution have been killed or live in exile; only the Peacocks possess the wisdom required to carry out the mission.
Pierre's discoveries reach the hands of a Naturopathic physician named Tobias Jones. A descendant of the surviving Peacocks, he unravels Metatron's Cube and recreates the meaning of the intergalactic pentagon. He learns the history of Annapolis and relearns the story of the American Revolution, which includes its relationship to the MidEarth. As a reflection of the celestial realm, Tobias corrects the anomalies in the cube for the planet's salvation.
