The Deltora Quest 2: Deltora Shadowlands Series
by Emily Rodda (Author) Marc McBride (Illustrator)
In Deltora Shadowlands, Lief, Barda, and Jasmine venture beneath Deltora. There they encounter strange societies formed by the three original tribes of the Shadowlands, which long ago was a beautiful land, where the the Shadow Lord was supressed by the magic of the Pirran Pipe. The three adventurers convince each tribe to lend them their piece of the Pipe, with which Lief, Barda and Jasmine travel into the Shadowlands itself, in the hope of using the Pipe to combat the Shadow Lord's power, long enough to free a multitude of Deltoran slaves.
