    Both of our boys have enjoyed reading fiction books about dragon

    Both of our boys have enjoyed reading fiction books about dragons, and we have quite a few, including those by Bryan Davis, Donita K. Paul, and Dave Marks, among others. However, we have never read the “Deltora” series of books written by Australian author Jennifer Rowe, under the pen name Emily Rodda. There are actually three sets of them: the Deltora Quest Series of eight books (The Forests of Silence, The Lake of Tears, City of the Rats, The Shifting Sands, Dread Mountain, Maze of the Beast, The Valley of the Lost, and Return to Del); the Deltora Shadowlands Series of three books (Cavern of the Fear, The Isle of Illusion, and The Shadowlands); and the Dragons of Deltora Series of four books (Dragons Nest, Shadowgate, Isle of the Dead, and The Sister of the South); plus some add-on books like Tales of Deltora and Secrets of Deltora.

    They follow the adventures of three companions as they journey across the fictitious land of Deltora, endeavoring to recover the magical Belt of Deltora and defeat allies of the evil Shadow Lord. Though we have not read them, they have been recommended by friends. The Deltora Book of Monsters is another bonus book. It is purportedly written by Josef, the palace librarian of the kingdom of Deltora. He had been ordered by Prandine, chief advisor to King Alton, to destroy The Deltora Annals but through a ruse was able to escape with them and go into hiding. The foreword gives a short history of Deltora, telling how the great leader Adin drove the Shadow Lord’s hordes back across the mountains and formed the seven tribes into a united Deltora. Apparently Prandine and Alton are afraid to let the Deltoran people know their true history.

    The rest of the book is a fantastical look at the world of Deltora with descriptions of the different Deltoran creatures identified throughout the series and exquisite four-color drawings of the creatures by illustrator Marc McBride. Our younger son Jeremy, who likes reading about monsters, saw it in a discount bookstore and asked to buy it. I suspect that it might have made a little more sense if we had read the Deltora books first, but for those who have read or are reading them it would be a very helpful companion because it gives information on many of the creatures mentioned in the books, so that the reader can have a better visual of the story, sort of like a field guide. However, parents might want to keep the book away from small or sensitive children, especially those who could be given to bad dreams based upon what they see.

    These books are Awesome!!!!!!

    These books are great they target almost any age group particularly those of grades 4-8. I have read the whole series and it is awesome. After I read the first 8 books I kept studying Deltora and its king I also just kept reading the following series Shadowlands & Dragons. I do know almost everything about these books. Let me just say to you Lief II, a Deltorian Scholar you probably know nothing about these books, I mean you can't even spell Lief right (or in your stupidity of a mind Leif, HAH you idiot of a ninny). Well thats all I have to say to you, and for my closing statement Emily Rodda you ROCK!!!!!! (And Marc McBride sure can draw):)

    Deltora Book of Monsters

    My dearest friend, First I would like to tell you I consider myself a Deltorian Scholar. I have studied the Deltora Quest Series extensivly. So I would like to tell you what these wonderful books are made up of. (E-mail me if you want to talk about Deltora, I know everything about it!) Deltora is a land of magic, monsters, and danger. The evil Shadow lord has taken over the kingdom... and only three people can save it. Leif, Jasmine, and Barda have nothing in common- and everything to lose. They must embark on a perilous quest to recapture the seven lost gems of the magic Belt of Deltora. Only when the belt is complete once more can the evil shadow lord be overthrown. The obstacals are many. The risk are real. But Leif, Jasmine, and Barda must defeat the darkness- or else Deltora will perish.

    The Best Books Ever

    The Deltora Quest Books are the best books you will ever read!! Emily Rodda is my favorite writer and I think she is a ten times better than JK Rowling or Lemony Snicket could ever be. I would recommend this book to anyone who loves Lord of the Rings. D.Q. is the best book of fantasy and adventure of the century!!!

    Awesome book!

    Even though this book is targeted at a younger age group, this book is a thriller for all ages. I have read all the series and, I think that Emily Rodda has done a wonderful job at making this story come to life. I can't wait until the rest of her series come out! I hope you enjoy reading these books.

    Shhhhhhhhhh... secret!

    Psst... do you like the first series of D.Q.? What about the second series of D.Q., the Shadowlands? And the Deltora Book of Monsters? Great too. Well I learned on Scholastic.com/deltoraquest on the author's page is that there's a new series coming out in the summer of 2004. But that's all they said. But remember... you didn't here it from me.

    the monsters book of the century

    Here you can find any kind of mosnter in Deltora Land. Based on the marvelous Emilly Rodda's books Deltoras. I will guarentee that you would not be dissapointed. Better than Rowling with her Harry Potter and as great as Tolkien with his LOTR. Don't miss the other books!

    So whats up with the Quest in Deltora?

    I think Emily rodda has really outdone herself this time by subjecting her time to making these excellent books. Personaly I like number 5: Dread mountain and number 4: The Shifting Sands, So I really recommend this book to kids who like to read about adventure.
