The Deltora Quest 1 Series
The Deltora Quest
is a collective title for three series of children's fantasy books with a continuing, classical quest storyline, comprised of: the Deltora Quest
, Deltora Shadowlands
, and Dragons of Deltora
, also titled Deltora Quest 1
, and 3
, respectively. Ideally, the three series should be read in order. Like Rodda's earlier, Rowan of Rin
series, the Deltora Quest
uses riddles, a fast-paced narrative, and an epic setting to engage its readers. In most countries, the series is illustrated by Marc McBride.
The first series follows the adventures of three companions- Lief, Jasmine and Barda - as they journey across the land of Deltora, endeavoring to save it by recovering the magical Belt of Deltora and defeating the allies of the evil Shadow Lord.
