Author Biography

Dean De Servienti is the author of three novels, all published in Italian, to critical acclaim. Quantum is the first of these novels to be translated to English, after achieving great success amongst thriller readers. Quantum ranked #1 on Amazon.it for more than one month upon its launch in Italy.
At the age of seventeen Dean started to travel the world. As a Political Science university student he began exploring Western Africa, aquiring a deep knowledge of the territory and its people. In the ‘90s he moved to the United States where he produced several independent travel-adventure documentaries series. His work has been licensed to more than 20 television channels around the world.
From 1991 to 1995 Dean followed some Non-Governmental Organizations operating in Africa and South and Central America. Since 2008 he mainly focused on literary production always using travelling as a source of inspiration and discovery.
Quantum (Book One) represents De Servienti’s vision (backed up by a very detailed research and little known facts) of a credible origin of life on Earth.
Dean is currently writing Book Two of the Quantum Trilogy.

Reviewed by Neil A White for Readers' Favorite

Quantum, by Dean De Servienti, is the first novel in a rip-roaring trilogy that will have you salivating, waiting on the release of part two. Mr. De Servienti’s thrill-ride begins in the Darfur desert region of Sudan with the discovery of a mysterious object. The material from which it is constructed appears to be not of this world, yet the rock from which it was extracted dates back 250 million years. And so begins the adventure for a select team of six scientists as they attempt to unravel the mysteries that the strange object contains. They quickly determine that their find may have devastating effects on the world’s perception of history as we know it, so they go into hiding to protect the sanctity of their research. However, word leaks out, and the team is forced to flee. Hunted by an assassin employed by the world’s three major religions, and the CIA, that believes it is a weapon, the group of scientists has only one man - who hunts down historical artifacts for a living – on whom they can rely.

Quantum is one of those rare novels that you’ll find impossible to put down. It is a thrill-a-minute ride from Africa to Europe to the United States and on to the Caribbean, as our protagonists try to stay one step ahead of their pursuers, all the while learning the startling secrets that their discovery contains. Secrets that, if revealed, would turn our world upside down. Mr. De Servienti’s Quantum is an excellent novel and one that I highly recommend. And with a surprise ending that has me eagerly awaiting the second installment!
