Deltora Quest series 1 tells the story of three companions—Leif, Barda and Jasmine—who are on a perilous quest to find the seven lost gems of the Belt of Deltora. Only when the belt is complete will the evil Shadow Lord and his rule of tyranny be overcome.
This best-selling series of eight books is set in the fantasy world of Deltora, a sprawling kingdom of magic and monsters, bordered by the sea and a vast, curving mountain range, beyond which is an unknown territory called the Shadowlands.
An a ppealing aspect of these books is the series of brainteasers, puzzles, clues and mysteries that the adventurers must solve to fulfill the quest.
Part one of a three part series, Deltora quest is one of the best fantasy books around for younger readers. The core of the series focuses on 3 main characters Leif the reluctant hero, Barda the disgruntled castle guard and Jasmine the wild haired orphan. Together this unlikely trio have to work together to restore the belt of Deltora and banish the evil that is plaguing the land. Along the way we meet lots of crazy characters and evil creatures from gigantic snakes to massive human eating insects. One thing is for sure, this series is one big non stop action packed adventure! - Amorette (QBD)
Deltora Quest will always remain one of my favourite reads of my childhood. The first bindup of this series follows the adventures of a trio travelling around the world of Deltora collecting magical gems with the power to overthrow the evil Shadow Lord who rules over the land. With lots of clever riddles and puzzles along the way, it's a truly engaging read and a great intro to fantasy for kids! - Mitchell (QBD)
