It begins with a Dragon named Dennagon, he is a sentry that guards the dragon city of Drakemight. But he is no ordinary Dragon, he thirsts for knowledge and his dwelling is overcrowded with stacks of books that he has read over and over. The world in which Dennagon lives is not quite the Fantasy world that we know from Tolkien. Rifts in time give an interesting mix of magic and technology. A world of Dragons and Paladins, but also a world of cybernetic beings (ergo Technodragons) with technology that seems very out of place in this world. Dennagon who is forced to become a dissident as the real evil in the land is the Dragon King Drekkenoth who looks to poison the minds of his fellow dragons and capture the source of all knowledge – The Lexicon.
The battle and journey begins to capture the Lexicon as he who holds all knowledge will be omniscient.
Ironically, magic and technology don't play huge roles, they are mere tools for the characters to use, but the story is more centered on the characters and their perceptions of the world around them.The characters engage is some very interesting discussions about life, science and the meaning of it all. There are no concrete answers to very philosophical questions posed in this book, but rather the author seems to what to engage the reader and get him/her to think about their perceptions of reality and perhaps even to challenge those perceptions.
