Rise of the Dibor
An Allegory for All Ages
No temptation--no sin. Where Adam and Eve had fallen, Ad and Eva stayed strong in the Most High. Evil had failed to reach them, and Morgui, the fallen one, never conquered them.
Enter the perfect world of Dionia, where it is always summer and where temptation is nonexistent.
But even as life goes on, an evil begins to grow in Dionia, an evil that could threaten the entirety of Dionia and those that inhabit it. Slowly, but surely, even the land itself begins to herald the approach and reawakening of evil.
Luik, son of a king of Dionia, must embark on a quest to save his world and become a Dibor, before Dionia follows the fate of the world that has gone before it: Earth.
This is an epic book. There are only so many words that you can say to describe such books. Christopher Hopper weaves an epic saga of life, death, and allegory within the pages of Rise of the Dibor. The description found in this book is breathtaking and vivid--Hopper accurately describes everything in detail, painting a masterpiece in your mind. Be prepared for an amazing ride to all edges of Dionia as boys become men and a battle for the fate of Dionia looms above their heads.
However, keep in mind that there are a number of grammar-related mistakes in this novel, but that is to be expected. All in all, this is an amazing book, one that I highly recommend.

A Homespun Tale-- So to Speak
Luik, a young boy in a pure world, has never seen evil. That is about to change, for strange things are happening, and more and more are leaving the CreatorÃ¢ÂÂs presenceÃ¢ÂÂ¦
Rise of the Dibor was a very heartfelt and thrilling book. I loved how the characters walked with the Creator, as if he was right beside them, and it set an example for me. I highly recommend this book to all of you, whether youÃ¢ÂÂre eight or eighty.
