"When Jonathan O'Lochan, Counselor at the U.S. embassy in Cairo first saw the small monkey perched on a branch of a nearby acacia tree, he thought that the cute little visitor was pleading for food so he threw it a banana. But, in his wildest dreams, he could never have guessed that the pleasing of this particular monkey was about to change his life."
So begins The Legend of Dagad Trikon, an action- packed fantasy, good-versus-evil thriller that embraces ten thousand years of history. Journeying through Africa, Europe, India, and America, it tells of prophecies in ten caskets, hidden by the Avasthas, an enlightened race who vanished eons ago.
Jonathan and his friends find themselves unwittingly on a search for the greatest prize that mankind can attain: the secret to how we can transcend the perceived limits of the human mind. The Legend of Dagad Trikon offers a precise explanation as to how this can happen and posits that this is at the heart of the Holy Grail myth.
No brief description can do justice to The Legend of Dagad Trikon. It is Tolkienesque, and there are elements of C.S. Lewis in the writing. What one can say for sure, is that it is an utterly unique and rewarding reading experience, full of subtlety and nuance, something to be re-read and savored many times.
The Elephant Rock
The Elephant Rock is located at the ancient site of Omphalos gaies, the name of the holy sanctuary of Delphi in Greece, considered the centre of the world during antiquity. The rock is largely ignored in modern times, but in the text of Dagad Trikon, it is one of the entrances to the Bardo, the underworld.
The Holy Grail
The mystical cup with which Joseph of Arimathea collected the blood/essence of Christ on the Cross at Golgotha. It is said to contain the mysterious substance that is the key to the redemption of mankind.
"I loved reading the Legend of Dagad Trikon for it encompasses fantasy mixed with sound historical references and it's a fascinating quest told with insights into ancient and modern spiritual knowledge. It is an epic novel, a gripping adventure lived by characters who become increasingly real and endearing to the reader. I highly recommend this original novel to 'book worms' of any age.

This is one of those rare books, like the master work of C.S. Lewis, which draws you in completely and compels you to participate with the protagonists on their amazing journey. Having heard such great things about the book from friends, I had very high expectations and I wasn't disappointed. It was so enjoyable to be swept into such a captivating 'reality'. Please let there be a sequel.

The Legend of Dagad Trikon is a phenomenal read - the author is at his best explaining the battles, inner and outer, that we all face daily.

I am eager to know the trick from the people who wrote that they make sure to read a few pages everyday. I could not put it down until I finished it. It almost took a day to come back to the real life. Great book or may I call it a Legend? I am ready for a second go at it. Thanks to Mr. Grégoire.

This book is absolutely breathtaking, impossible to put down. It is quite unlike anything else ever written before. The author brilliantly relates the connection of the underlying truths hidden and forgotten in different cultures across the world. LDT is deeply symbolic and I feel that the author is describing something that is really happening here and now. As has been predicted, the time is approaching when religion and science will become one, no more believing, only knowledge through experience. I think this book is going to be a milestone in the evolution of mans' ability to discover and use the full potential of the brain . The main characters in the book are discovering truths about the human race that has been, and are still today forbidden to be spoken of in some places for example. that no man or woman is higher than another so priests are no longer necessary. Maybe this book is part of a silent revolution. It is incredible how subtle and intelligent the power from where the author got his inspiration must be.
Thank you Mr. Kalbermatten for sharing this with us.

I really enjoyed The Legend of Dagad Trikon. I would come home from work every night, looking forward to reading a chapter. I would read, even if it was 1 a.m. and sometimes, I couldn't stop at one chapter!

I'm hooked… this book reminds me of The Da Vinci Code, but much better written.
Claire Scobie - author of "Last Seen in Lhasa: the Story of an Extraordinary Friendship in Modern Tibet"
As the editor of many fantasy titles, including The Legend of Dagad Trikon, this fascinating novel was unique for me in the sheer depth and scope of the stage on which it plays out. To read this book is to embark on a journey, an adventure - a quest that is at least as richly rewarding as the search for the secrets of Dagad Trikon itself.
