Deacon Leeds is a kid that has a great head on his shoulders, isn't afraid to go after what he wants, has a sense of adventure and a healthy thirst for the unknown which make for a great story!
I would highly recommend this book for anyone of any age. I was absolutely taken in by it and so was my nephew who is 16. It would be a great story for anyone from age 10 to 110!
Happy Reading =}
The book has two timelines. One of the past.. and one of today. At some point.. the two merge!
The story of the past.. follows 'chosen' young maidens who are taught how to use the four elements.. and to keep Earth in harmony. Mother Earth is their teacher.. visible to the highest priestess. She lives within the huge pyramid! Unfortunately.. good has a counterpart.. and he is 'the shadow'.. pure evil.. who wants to destroy Mother Earth. He uses one of the kings.. and teaches him how to use the symbols for evil.
Very fast read! And, a superb plot! The characters are rich in detail.. and you get to know them! I'd highly recommend this book to anyone that loves history and adventure!
I liked how the author kept it clean, and Deacon was a likeable character. He felt true emotions for what he was going through. This showed his human side. I also liked how this was not another retread copy of another story that was been hashed over and over. It was refreshing to find a rather new storyline.
There were a few typos in the book (missing periods, etc.), which surprised me, because it seemed to be well-edited otherwise. I also felt the author could have slowed down certain parts and developed them more. Certain areas seemed rushed, or did not help develop the story at all. Those parts could have been deleted without missing a story beat. Also at times, there seemed to be more "telling" of the story than "showing".
But in the big picture, these are minor things. This is a clean story that you can feel safe to have your kids read, the adventures are ripe with humor and suspense, and the door is left wide open for future adventures.
I feel that it is a job well done.
