Yes, the cover really does look like that. Advertisement: Rifts in time during the Middle Ages allow humans to summon powerful prehistoric beasts and future technologies in this fantastic novel about the influence of perception on reality and the role of political power on the conversion of knowledge into ideology. Under the auspices of the hominids, dragon king Drekkenoth has attempted to use knowledge to corrupt the minds of all the dragons in his kingdom but is stymied by the existence of a single source of uncorrupt knowledge: a tome of omniscience known as the Lexicon. Dennagon, a lowly dragon sentry, takes it upon himself to discover this lexicon, an act that leads to his expulsion from the mainstream world of worms and humans and the creation of a band of dissident dragons who wage war on the corruption of Drekkenoth and his human masters. During his seemingly endless quest to find the Lexicon, battles with cyborg technodragons and bewildering encounters with the enigmatic forces of time provide Dennagon with insight into the ephemerality of omniscience and the instability of the temporal as he discovers that there is more to life than the lore he has so desperately been searching for. A horrific frothing sound filled the atmosphere.

Start your review of Dragons: Lexicon Triumvirate Write a review Feb 18, Silvera Starling rated it did not like it Something that always makes me sad is when a book has an honestly interesting concept that I really like, but then the writing is absolute crap.
Dragons: Lexicon Triumvirate is one of those books. The premise of the story is about the world being in the Middle Ages, but because time is distorted and reality is being weird, things such as advanced technology co-exist in the world. I actually kind of like that. It creates a surreal atmosphere and I think in the hands of a more capable writer, it Something that always makes me sad is when a book has an honestly interesting concept that I really like, but then the writing is absolute crap.
It creates a surreal atmosphere and I think in the hands of a more capable writer, it could have turned out cool. Something like a world where the laws of physics have broken and everyone is freaking out.
The story constantly fills with random ramblings about time, space, reality, math, and abstract concepts. It does little to add to the book and just makes the characters irritating. And the characters are already pretty irritating on their own. Dennagon, the main character, is just unlikable. Everyone else is either dull or just plain forgettable. Or equally pretentious. I would like to show how all this "drop smart sounding information" stuff ruins the narrative.
Why would you write a simile like that? It sucks, because this book could have actually been kind of cool. I like the world it presented. It was this surreal fantasy with modern technology thrown in. Why not make it so the characters struggle to deal with the non-rules of this world?
There is ambiguity in everything because everything can mean anything or nothing. So, yeah. Thanks to conjugalfelicity. Dragons lexicon triumvirate, seems like it has the makings of a good story.
It has dragons that are fighting humans and technoknights, as well as the technodragon king Drekkenoth and his two cyborg cronies.
Its got dragons, thunderbirds, magic and fantastic lands. Also cyborgs, firearms and computers. Too bad that it just comes off as an asinine half-baked waste of a story! The central plot is about Dennagon a once loyal Dragons Lexicon Triumvirate, Good ideas in the hands of an incapable author. The central plot is about Dennagon a once loyal sentry of the destroyed city of Drakemight.
So they can get the all-powerful magical MacGuffin: the lexicon. The story itself is just a mess of ideas that has no cohesion and ends up like something a forth-grader came up with on the bus ride home from school. The prose itself is just plain awful. I swear that he abuses the thesaurus so badly that someone should call socal services. In all honesty it makes me wonder if there was an editor at all when this story was written.
The characters are flat at best and before and done way, way, better elsewhere in other in other works. They have no real personalty and just there, they have at best a single stereotypical trait and little else.
The villains are just the most bland and uninteresting. The motivations of the big bad just boils down to, "I want the Lexicon because I want to be all-powerful," and little else. In conclusion they are all forgettable. The fights lack energy or even make you care who wins or not.
I would like to call Kenneth Eng a hack. I would like to call his writing style akin to fanfiction but, that would be an insult to everyone on fanfiction. At least they have the benefit of being based on something that was successful.
The only value this story has is for any aspiring author to see how not to write a story like this.

Akikree DF — And words are used to communicate things like concepts, so…yeah. To see what your friends thought of this book, please sign up. A loud cranking sound churned as well, wooden and monstrous. Now all that stands between him and world domination is Dennagon, with his untainted soul. It has the fantasy elements of a kingdom run by dragons, who are engaged in an ongoing war with humans. And it would have saved us from the anime-ish descriptions of a retarded fight scene.
