  2. This was one of my favorite book series as a teen and was the book that really got me into reading fantasy It s technically considered a children s fiction book, but if you are interested in YA books don t let that scare you off as it s an excellent piece of fantasy writing I recently read this book for the third of fourth time after a very long hiatus of reading hundreds of other YA and Adult fiction and I m pleased to say that it holds up very well.The series starts with a king and his best fr [...]

  3. What a nice, quick read This is a great fantasy novel for 7 10 year olds First half of the book is about the protagonist s dad The second half is very the action starts and the three main characters meet I m looking forward to the rest of the series.

  5. I have just recently finished reading The Forests of Silence, by Emily Rodda It the first book in the Deltora Quest books I read this series when i was younger, and remembered that it was a nice escape from reality After reading it again i can tell why i liked it so much as a kid.This book really isn t like any other books I ve read in recent memory The best way Ii could describe it is like the Lord of the Rings, but much easier to read The fantasy, creatures, and quest all remind me of that ser [...]

  6. i realise i might be Way Too Old to read this for the first time but i saw a cool edit now here we r

  7. My sister and I both read these in fourth grade I graduated high school this May, for reference , and to this day they rank among our favorite series read, ever And we both have read a LOT of books.I forget the plots and the characters names and what even the major point of the quest was but I do remember the fantastic time that I had reading these books I remember running to the Childrens section of Barnes and Noble and hoppping up and down waiting for my dad to buy us the next book, and physic [...]

  8. Deltora Quest is a series for children, but the world that is created by the skillful mind of Emily Rodda will stay with you The characters will remain your friends, and the words will be there to entertain, comfort, distract, anytime you choose to pick up any one of the 1st, 2nd or 3rd Deltora Quest series My love for these books and my gratitude towards Emily Rodda for creating them cannot be accurately explained without sounding creepy Which is unfortunate Deltora became a home away from home [...]

  9. The book The Forest Of Silence is about a boy named Jared Jared lived in the castle of Deltora Jared s parents died so he is still in the castle to be best friends with the prince They were Best friends and then they got split apart then Jared had a son named Leaf The Shadow Lord ruled Deltora for many years and the 7 Gems were gone so Leaf goes looking for them with some guy named Barda They meet a girl named Jasmin They fight a guy then find 1 gem.I made a text to text connection I connect thi [...]

  10. Based on this book, Deltora Quest seems to be a great transition series for the move from children s books to YA books This first book in the first series apparently the Deltora line resembles the Beast Quest line, in that they are both long series of books broken up into shorter mini series of five or six volumes each has an unusually complicated plot for a children s book , and protagonists that exhibit a complicated emotional range than most children s books they re angry, confused, and, at [...]

  11. Wow, very detailed and action packed started to a series I loved it when we were told that Jarred and Endon had a secret code as a kid in order to tell each other if Min was near I kinda got sad and frustrated at the same time when Endon is crowned as king and is forced out of his friendship with Jarred Prandine is very forceful, and seems to hate Jarred I can t believe that Endon didn t believe Jarred when he came to warn him, but noooooo Prandine had to freakout and call for guards because he [...]

  12. I adored this series as a kid, and re reading it now, it actually still stands up Is is simple Yes Are there large chunks of exposition Yes Does the whole books feel like a rip off of the Lord of the Rings Absolutely But it s engaging and descriptive without being flowery or on the nose, female characters are treated the same as any other, and the plot flows swiftly For a kid s adventure book, this thing ticks all the boxes for me.

  13. Good enjoyable kids book that I still find myself turning to The T.V series along with it is another, enjoyable show to binge watch A good throwback.

  14. PERSONAL RESPONSEWhile not the hardest book I have ever read, The Forests of Silence did a wonderful job of keeping my interest Even though the action part of the story is relatively short, it is well balanced by the backstory Sort of a nine chapter prologue, if you willOTIn the land of Deltora, King Alton has died of the mysterious illness Only days before, this same illness took the queen Their child Endon is crowned, or in this case belted, in a ceremony where he will wear the Belt of Deltora [...]

  15. This came highly recommended But I thought it was seriously lame for the first 50 pages In reading about the characters I felt no sympathy, I thought them shallow, especially the first villain we meet face to face, and I thought it extremely far fetched that Jarred just happened to doubt what he had been raised to believe on the night Endon was crowned Just happened to think of it It would have been believable for Jarred to sneak out, find out what was really going on, come back and find Endon [...]

  16. I m eight years older than my brother When I was a teenager I got into the habit of reading the books he was reading so we could talk about them It started with Harry Potter and spiraled out from there My brother absolutely loved the Deltora Quest series as a little boy, and practically begged me to read them I read them all in one weekend, and it lead to a lot of good conversations between us I like to think of Deltora Quest as a precursor to epic fantasy series like Lord of the Rings, A Song o [...]

  17. it is a very good book for somebody that wants to stick with a sires it has probably one of the best backstories ever it creates strong characters and a very interesting universe it has very interesting characters and places all tied up neatly into a large adventure one of the ways that a charterer changed SPOILER ALERT is when the charterer barda is brought back from the brink of death from the golden lilies nectar and he says that he admits that he wanted to go on the quest alone and not bring [...]

  18. Deltora Quest is a very good book I like how it starts with a flashback to about 16 years ago to show how the world became what it is The only problem I have with that is Emily Rodda could have made a book just about Lief s dad and the king I think the group will have trouble finding all of the gems for the belt I don t know how Lief s father could send his kid into danger like he did I think it was cool that Barda was pretending to be a homeless person outside of their house for 16 years just t [...]

  21.

  22. I picked this book up off of my shelf late at night, with the intention of going to bed after I finished it It was a good thing I had the rest of the series as well, otherwise I would have had to find a book store open at 11 o clock at night The Deltora Quest series is amazing Once you start it, you will not want to put it down The character development is believable and the world that Rodda has created is well developed and lush with danger and magical creatures I wish I had picked up the BN ha [...]

  23. It was pretty dang good The beginning was a bit a confusing, but after a while it began to become clear The first part of the book is about two childhood friends who did almost everything together Heck the two Friends even made there own secret language One of the friends was a prince and his father died from a unknown sickness, Making the prince king In order to become king, the prince needs to put on a magical with 7 magic gems these seven gems have the power to keep the shadow lord at bay Th [...]

  24. Before I read it, I had never heard of this series I saw it sitting on a bookshelf and I had nothing else to read, so I thought why not So I picked it up As I read of Jarred and Endon s journey, I was instantly intrigued The whole idea around the series to collect the 7 gems of the belt of Deltora to end the reign of the evil Shadow Lord is simple yet so effective Also, the main characters of Lief, Barda, and Jasmine is really an interesting mix and proves to hold potential for great character d [...]
