JakeKSAge: Under 18Gender: male5 Stars Out Of 5An Allegory for All AgesDecember 13, 2010JakeKSAge: Under 18Gender: maleQuality: 4Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5No 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.

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 you're eight or eighty.
Seth3 Stars Out Of 5August 7, 2010SethIn Dionia, a world that knew no sin, an ancient evil arises to turn everything that they know upside down. Christopher Hopper creates a world unlike any other, completely original. The story is about 18 young princes who are called to be trained to become a band of warriors. The Dibor. But are 18 men enough, even when well equipped and highly trained, to take down an army of demons?

Jessica5 Stars Out Of 5March 5, 2010JessicaI could not put the book down, it was just so good! The whole story spring out of a question a lot of us have asked but never really dwelled on. What would earth be like if Adam and Eve had not sinned? Mr. Hopper did a great job of really thinking it through.When I first picked up this book and started to read, I became worried that I would get frustrated by the slower story line and heaps of description. I was however, greatly surprised when I found the things that usually annoy me in books, actually made me enjoy this book all the more. The beginning was not as fast paced as many books I have previously read, but it entertaining none the less. In these slower parts we are given a bunch of background information of the world, customs, insight on the characters etc. It gave me an understanding of the main characters and helped me begin to care for them.
