Today, Nartea Publishing, a division of DNA Press (http://www.dnapress.com), announced that the book ÂDragons: Lexicon TriumvirateÂ (ISBN 0-9748765-0-X) has been shipped to bookstores. The publication of this book coincides with the much-anticipated show Dragons on the Discovery Channel Â Animal Planet (http://animal.discovery.com/convergence/dragons/dragons.html) to be seen on March 20th. Set in a mediaeval realm where futuristic technologies and prehistoric beings alike can be summoned through the tapping of timeÂs power, this book depicts the story of Dennagon, a lone dragon sentry who battles to find omniscience. What sets Kenneth EngÂs first book, Dragons: Lexicon Triumvirate, apart from most science fiction/fantasy is the fact that it revolves not around humans, but dragons. Dragons, often portrayed in literature as vile creatures meant to be slain by men, are instead shown as intelligent beings bent upon the search for truth. It is the only novel that is based entirely upon technologically advanced dragons battling one another in the Middle Ages, and contains fantastic fight sequences that span across time and space with an array of amazing weaponry.
In addition, this fiction work is not only entertaining, but philosophical as well. Various challenges that the characters face lead to discussions on the nature of the universe (and multiverse), and demonstrate how perception can literally change any reality, including our own quotidian World. What makes this book unique from other metaphysical stories, however, is that fact that it answers through pure logic alone many of the most fundamental riddles known to man Â the nature of infinity, the certainties of the universe, and the conceptual Theory of Everything, just to name a few. The author even claims that the very meaning of life is buried somewhere in the text.
Readers at various ages will enjoy this work, which is destined to be one of the bestseller books of 2005. It is not very often to find a book, which treats philosophy through the prism of DragonsÂ lives and knowledge in such a powerful way.
After being outcast from his draconic civilization, the dragon sentry Dennagon joins a band of errant dragons that tell him about an entity called the Lexicon, the one item in the world of fantasy that contains the source of all wisdom. However, along with the challenge of finding the Lexicon, he must also face the evil dragon king Drekkenoth, a frightful serpentine tyrant who has corrupted the minds of his species with the venom of knowledge. Armies of mechanized humans have amassed under his command, as well as quantum mechanical Technodragons of the 25th century enhanced. Their mission is to take total control over all reality, and the only being who can stop them is the one dragon that defied their decree. But can Dennagon overcome the strange enigmas of time that await him? Can he defeat legions of Technoknights, wurms, and wyverns that seek to annihilate him? More so, can he ever comprehend that there is more to life than the lore he has so valiantly sought?
The author, Kenneth Che-Tew Eng, is a January 2005 graduate of NYUÂs Tisch School of the Arts. At 21 years of age, he is one of the youngest published science fiction novelist in America. He has also written the novel The 0th Dimension. An ardent furry fanatic, he specializes in creating anthropomorphic literature and art.
The book is available at http://www.dnapress.com, amazon.com, and bookstores near you (available through Ingram, Baker&Taylor, IPB Book). Price: $21.95
