Book Description

***A must-read for fans of Rick Riordan's Percy Jackson Series***

Deacon Leeds is spending his school break on a scientific expedition in frigid Antarctica. Unfortunately, the only other teen staying at the Terra Nova Station is a royal jerk named Broderick Norsworthy. But when a football-sized golden pyramid—covered in curious symbols—is discovered buried below the ice, Deacon quickly learns that Broderick is more than just a pimple-faced nuisance: He's a thief on a dark mission.

Now it's up to Deacon and Fitz, an old driller, to track Broderick down and rescue the ancient artifact. The unlikely companions are thrust into a harrowing adventure across the polar plateau, where they must survive the brutal climate, as well as a mysterious entity that will stop at nothing to prevent them from acquiring the golden Pyramid of Symbols.

Along the way, Deacon deciphers the pyramid's magical symbols and unlocks a secret that will lead him to an even larger mystery thriving below the ice. It is there that Deacon learns what is truly at stake….

5.0 out of 5 stars Great start to what I hope is a new series! March 23, 2012
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 =}

I thought The Silver Earth Seed by Grant Morris was very good but Deacon Leeds and the Pyramid of Symbols was amazing. His characters were so vivid.

5.0 out of 5 stars Engaging fantasy tale July 6, 2012
By Joshua
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 What an imagination! May 16, 2012
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!

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliantly colorful! March 27, 2012
By Rachel
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Deacon Leeds and the Pyramid of Symbols was so brightly written I didn't put it down until I was done. I have been going through Harry Potter withdraws and Deacon Leeds helped fill that void of magical moments. In Deacon Leeds you are constantly guessing at who the bad guy actually is, admiring the Mother's dreadfully fascinating speeches, and the wishing to work the symbols' magical powers... if only I could be one of the chosen few. If only I new where to find the Palmpa plant. Ha-ha!

I admit, I wasn't thrilled with the first 50% or so of the book. The constant back and forth between Deacon and Kyra was okay at first, but it dragged on. Read more

A good read but it did jump around a bit. Which made it hard not to skip ahead then want to go back and finish reading the rest of the book.
