Reader question: transportation/translation magic

Dennis says: I’m fascinated by the technology/magic used to transport the monsters between worlds as well as the language translation device. Will we learn more about them in a future book?

Robin says: Thanks for the question! Since it’s technically closed-ended, I could easily say, “Yes,” and leave it at that ;D

But I will say a little more. The translation system doesn’t just allow very different people to communicate. Remember when Matías remarked of their first meal on Vulpine, “I bet it’s ‘translated’ just like all our languages”? What if he was right? I’ll ask you to consider all definitions of the verb ‘to translate.’
