Deception Peak by Dianne Lynn Gardner

Today I'm reviewing Deception Peak by Dianne Lynn Gardner!

The first book of a trilogy, Deception Peak is a young adult adventure fantasy about a teenager, Ian Wilson, who follows his father through a portal that magically appears on their computer screen. They travel into a deceptively beautiful Realm, where horses run free, the wind sings prophetic melodies, and their computer avatars come to life.

But when the two are separated, Ian is abducted by a tribe of dragon worshipers and is forced to find his courage. As he struggles for his freedom and embarks on a perilous search to find his father, Ian meets the true peacekeepers of the Realm. It's then that he learns there is a greater purpose for being there.

This is out of my realm of normal books read. I'm usually into romance books, even in YA novels. This book was given to me in exchange for an honest review, and I am more then happy to give it. I wasn't sure how I was going to feel about this book. It started off a little strange. Young loner boy with his dad having nerd bonding time. Going from there to this magical land that they somehow managed to get access to from a computer program the two of them build. Everything seems cool until they go to venture further into this world to explore and get separated. I didn't think I had gotten sucked into it so bad until I ran out of book to read! I was surprised I had been so absorbed. No sappy romance to distract me, no steamy sex scenes, just pure intense plot taking me from one chapter to the next and leaving me hanging!!

I'm really glad I read this. It was a wonderful read. I will be adding the next two books to my to be read list, with pleasure!! Five smooches for an exceptional read. You can find Deception Peak here!
