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. 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 in there.


 First off I want to say how much I enjoyed reading this book, it was given to me by First Rule Publicity for this blog tour and I loved reading it.

Deception Peak is a story full of great charcaters and incredable descriptions.  I really love  how this story flowed right off the pages and into the room I was reading it.  It was if the characters were right in front of me playing out what Dianne Gardner had wrote.  The characters are so realistic in this book that I felt as if I could really relate to them.  It's not every day that I find a book that can play out in my head like a movie.

I also really loved the history in this book as well, the history of the land and the characters also made me feel like I really knew them.  I love books that tell the backstories to characters and the land they are in.  It helps to make the story more understandable and Deception Peak didn't let me down on this aspect of the story.

I did get lost in this story a few times and had to reread something a few times, but it didn't take away from this story.

I also really loved the artwork with this book, its fantastic and beautiful.  I love books that have amazing artwork in them.

As a whole, Deception Peak is a fantastic story and a great start to this series.
