Publisher's Summary

The evil Shadow Lord is plotting to invade Deltora and enslave its people. All that stands against him is the magic Belt of Deltora with its seven gems of great and mysterious power. When the gems are stolen and hidden in dark, terrible places throughout the kingdom, the Shadow Lord triumphs and Deltora is lost. In secrecy, with only a hand-drawn map to guide them, two unlikely companions set out on a perilous quest. Determined to find the lost gems and rid their land of the tyrant, they struggle towards their first goal - the sinister Forests of Silence.

Nostalgic Easy listen

I remember reading these books when I was a kid and I loved the adventure. I had a short two hour trip and this was an easy listen for me and my husband.

These books should be made into a movie trilogy

These books should be made into a movie trilogy. In the same vein of Lord of the Rings.

some parts could have been more detailed. It could have transitioned into the main story better.
