ntarctica, circa 1540. Two aging swashbucklers confer on how to defend or hold their ground against a hostile force they know. Things look tight. They live on an island, in a mountain rich in tradition and myths. It is called “The Mountain of Hope”. Actually it is Dragomar, supposedly the ancient home of dragons and their successful “cultural successors”.
A slightly pubescent youth is bored far away from Dragomar. Everything is trivial, transparent and repeats itself in a daily rhythm. He would like to travel the ocean but he is not allowed to yet. He dreams of adventures and battles that seem so real to him, as if he had a déjà vu with a historical claim to truth. Fire seems to come out of his nose and he changes in other ways as well. He is drawn toward a distant island where there is a mountain with a crystal shining brightly and mysteriously at the top. He is told that he is a foster child and that his grandfather, his last relative, lives on the distant island. The budding hero sets out, meets various people, develops physical and mental abilities, is kidnapped. There is a sea battle for him, because he is supposed to be something like an heir to the throne. He learns about history, past forms of government and more about ancient myths.
That Italian emperor penguins completely deface and chew up the “Band of Brothers” speech from Henry V; that a black dragon can spit black holes and is about to merge into the matrix; that really fascistic meanies are afraid of the crowd of penguins and are prone to vulgarity; that the issue of separation of powers is a real problem … all this stuff fills the pages in such a way that it is irrelevant whether there is a human, animal or dragon giving something to the best.
