The Citadel Trilogy

The Citadel has been described as “a delightful and intriguing mix of Herman Hesse and Isaac Asimov” (by John Tintera, Senior Sales at Hay House)

The Song of Citadels takes the reader on an epic journey that spans the rise and fall of civilizations and the seeding of life in the cosmos. This trilogy comprises three books: The Citadel; The Foundation; and Gaiya. In Book One, a city and its people are trying to fathom the great mystery of the Citadel, and the fears that keep them within its shadows. Book Two explores a community that knows about the true nature of the Citadel, as well as about the purpose of human civilization and the impulses behind life in the cosmos. In Book Three, the need for seeding life within the cosmos becomes an urgent imperative. 

At the heart of the Song of Citadels lies a mystery, an enigma, and an exploration – a journey upon which is disclosed many surprising truths about the nature of human existence. Yet we may ultimately find that, as always, the secret protects itself…

Reader’s Reviews of the book:

A delightful and intriguing allegory 23 April 2015 by Roman

With this new book, Kingsley L. Dennis continues his exploration of our modern society previously described in “Meeting Monroe”. “The Citadel” is a delightful and intriguing allegory about a search for the meaning of life. A young and eager narrator visits various representatives of a very structured and organized society. Among the narrator’s hosts are the Scholar, the Banker, the Philosopher, and others. By listening to their experiences, the narrator gradually discovers the secret that protects itself; the secret that is beyond the reach of scholars, philosophers, or bankers. The book is an excellent reading for everyone.

A classic modern fable to love 4 May 2015

The Citadel, the first book in a trilogy, is a well crafted tale that draws you in with every expression that appears on the page. It seems that not a word is wasted and every sentence is filled with rich allegorical images, each with its learning and meaning. The author does a great job of teasing you through the book, peaking your curiosity at the turn of each page, only to leave you hungering for more at the very end, which really is just the beginning. The book is a direct reflection of the lost and meaningless lives many of us are leading today, but also is a clarion call for us to awake and seek out our journey from the known to the unknown, before the ‘suns set’.

Waiting with great anticipation for Book 2!
