  2. Deltora Quest

    When the land was in piece the King betrayed them and the the gems of the belt of Deltora were scatered to the seven deadly islands and Lief and Barda and Jasmien have to restor the belt of Deltora and free the land of Deltor from the evil shadow lord.

    I thought that this book was an amazing book because Jasmien saved Barda and Liefs life, which sends a message to the reader to always help someone else and never leave them trapped.

    I would reccommend this book to anyone who is interested in sad books that end happy with some action this could be the book for you!
