I just want to comment that I'm in my 40's and I enjoyed this book very much. I bought it as I enjoyed the author's other fantasy adventure book. My sons and I are tired of the vampire, zombie, werewolf books that populate the fantasy section. This book has none of that. It's filled with great characters, a lot of action, and it's a fast read. Another winner for the author.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great start to what I hope is a new series! 23 Mar. 2012
By Gina Hurteau Shoen - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This book was a gift from the author and what a great gift it was! It's an adventure that is full of action, friendship, mystery and self discovery.

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 =}

5.0 out of 5 stars What an imagination! 16 May 2012
By Mamabear Cherei - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I was rather impressed with the concept behind 'Deacon Leeds and the Pyramid of Symbols'. The story is about two young men .. who do not get along.. stuck together in Antarctica. Their fathers both work at the scientific station. On the evening before they're due to fly out.. someone discovers a gold pyramid sunk down in the ice... where it must have been left 70,000 years ago! The pyramid has a number of symbols upon it.. somewhat like ancient Egyptian.. but, not quite. They know it's a very important find.. and are in a hurry to get it back to the USA for study. They do NOT make it. Their plane crashes.. many are feared dead..

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!

5.0 out of 5 stars Engaging fantasy tale 7 July 2012
By Joshua - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This book had me stumped at first. I wondered where the two separate story lines were going. Then they merged in a creative and unexpected way, and I enjoyed seeing how the story played out. The writing style was clean and understandable to enable quick reading. I wish I had known sooner that there was a glossary at the end to explain the new vocabulary. This story is probably geared toward young adults or younger, but it kept me (a grown man) entertained for a couple days.

5.0 out of 5 stars ELM 7 July 2012
By E L M - Published on Amazon.com

I loved this book, "Deacon Leeds and the Pyramid of Symbols." I was fascinated by the other book I read by Grant, "The Silver Earth Seed," but this book took me on a journey that I never wanted to return back from. To be exact, two journey's. If you read the book you will understand that statement! The imagination and creativity that this author has really blows my mind! The author makes it easy for readers to understand so I would recommend it for around ages 12 and up. Hats off to you again Grant! Keep them coming.

4.0 out of 5 stars Action adventure with some mystery 14 Nov. 2012
By Bruce - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Once I sat down and finally got into the story, it drew me in. The transitions between the present and the distant past seemed to be distracting at first, but then I finally realized they were necessary for the story.

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.
