Review: Deception Peak by Dianne Gardner
Teenage Ian Wilson follows his father through a portal into a deceptively beautiful Realm, where horses run free, the wind sings prophetic melodies, and their computer avatars come to life.I received this book from the author to give an honest review.
But separation from his father puts Ian in peril as he’s abducted by a tribe of dragon worshipers and forced to find his courage.
As he struggles for his freedom and embarks on a perilous search for his father, Ian meets the true peacekeepers of the Realm and learns of a greater purpose for his being
This is a great book that I honestly would have my son read when he gets older and can understand the book. Being as he is six he would probably look at me crazy and wonder why there are no pictures of the dragon lol. That being said I would recommend this book to younger kids, as there is an adventure written within this book that they may enjoy.
I had a problem with Ian being rude to Abbi ( I may have miss spelled her name as my kindle needs to charge so I can not go back and check right quick) even when she did not do anything but be curious. He seemed to be extremely short and I found that kind of bothersome.
Ian is taken on a journey to find his father and ends up not only kidnapped but he ends up making friends something he has never really had before. Ian and his father end up making a portal which takes them to another world that leads not only to adventure but danger unlike they have ever known. Ian is ever so cautious while his father Alex is wanting to explore this new world they have enter into. Along the way Alex and Ian are separated and Ian wants nothing more than to go home, but first he must find his father.
There seem to be two different tribes that live in this world, one being the Meneks who are in constant fear of the master and his punishments and are pretty much being held captive. While the Kaemperns want nothing more than to free them and live in peace with their families together.
Will they ever live in peace? Will Ian truly understand what he must do?
You just have to read to find out.
I would have liked to have known if time stood still when Ian and his father Alex entered into the world. Other than that it was a great story filled with an adventure, a dragon, friendship.
My Rating: 4 wine glasses
