Filled with action, adventure, and magic, Emily Rodda's remarkable Deltora series begins right here!
The evil Shadow Lord is plotting to invade the land of Deltora and enslave its people. All that stands against him is the magic Belt of Deltora with its seven stones of great and mysterious power.
In secrecy, with only a hand-drawn map to guide them, two unlikely companions set out on a dangerous quest. Determined to find the lost stones and rid their land of the Shadow Lord, they struggle toward their first goal--the sinister Forests of Silence.
I happened to find this in my local library by accident, our library happened to have the special edition also, and loved it from the first page! Definitely recommend this for any one to read, from kids to adults!
I use to read this series over and over again as a kid. It's full of adventure and riddles. It keeps you interested and leaves you wanting more. I read the series again as an adult and it brings me back to my childhood. It is as good as I remember it. You wouldn't regret reading it.
