I found this book to be one of the better novels in the series. It had much mystery to it, as it was set out in a much unfamiliar environment to me (Underwater, Maze). Throughout the entire book, you could never really tell what was going to happen until the moment you started reading the exact situation. Even though you can't actually see what's going on, The mental image you can paint in your mind is so in depth, This is because the author Emily Rodda has worded the novel to make it extremely
Read- May 2020 for Believeathon II and 24 Hour Raedathon (hosted by JadeyRaeReads)- I think this is my least favourite book in this series so far.
3.75 / 5The quest for the gems of Deltora continues in this next installment, with Leif, Jasmine and Barda on their way to find gem #6 ;DThis book introduced a rather terrifying new creature to the story - that of "Ols". Doesn't sound too menacing, but considering it's basically a really evil freaking shapeshifter that works for the Shadowlord and takes joy in causing pain and death, and that depending on the grade (one being the lowest, three the highest) it can not only take the shape of any l...
SN: I remember loving this series when I was a kid but I don't remember if I actually finished it. I might have moved on to another series by the time the last book was published. So here goes my attempt at rereading the entire thing!Meh, this one was never my favorite and I think this was actually the one that I stopped on when I was kid. The introduction and all of a sudden heavy focus on the shapechangers called Ols feels like too much too late. Also, there's just waaay too much going on in t...
Enjoyable book, really liked it
I liked Dain I hope he stays alive I wanna read more of him
This book feels different from the others. Partially because it is built differently from the rest. We get introduced to Ols, which are an important part of this book (view spoiler)[ and the rest of the series (hide spoiler)]. Dain is properly introduced (view spoiler)[ who is also important for the rest of the series (hide spoiler)], we get to see more of Doom. The friendship between the main trio, Lief, Barda and Jasmine, is put to the test and it showed how strong it had grown. Earlier in t...
It's hard to believe how consistently good each book in this series is! This one was no exception. New monsters, different landscape, clever treachery, a harrowing finish, a new friend and returning characters make this a satisfying book.
Very entertaining. But I will dock it one star *SPOILER ALERT*for the trio not even mentioning Dain, even in a passing comment, at the end. How cruel.
This one was a seriously packed one. In three hours we went ALL over. So to recap: (view spoiler)[ we met up with Dain (I was like "who??" when he appeared), who took us to the rebel stronghold, where we saw Doom again. (officially I still have no idea who he is, but as someone who saw the anime I get giddy every time he is near Jasmine.) Then they went ahead and escaped from the rebels, got separated, got boarded a boat, got attacked by pirates, chased after said pirate, got captured by said p
I think this may have been my favourite book in the series so far, but I do have a bias towards stories that include pirates. We see more of the Resistance in this book, but not much more. And it is still unclear (well, to a new reader anyway), whether Doom will be an ally or hostile to Lief et al's quest. One of the more intriguing aspect was the introduction of the Ols, which adds another layer of danger and suspicion to the story. Lief, Barda and Jasmine are in more peril than ever as they ne...
Bleakest one yet, an atmosphere of hopelessness. There's very little levity in this one, and some of the most brutal scenes in the series yet (pirate attack, the maze itself). There's definitely been an upward trend of darkness in this series, especially in the realm of human cruelty and betrayal. I was surprised at the brief separation of the group and the brief loss of the belt - they've been so stuck together up to this point. That lent a surprisingly subtle sense of dislocation to this one.
This book had so much promise at the start with regards to learning about shapechangers known as Ols. To the reintroduction of Doom and his reaction. Our heroes even decide to split up as they think it will be safer for them to not be recognized by the descriptions given about them - especially while they are with their traveling companion. However, it started to fall apart for me once they get to the coast. I am not sure whether it was just that I could not visualize the imagery (which was like...
The next step on Lief, Barda and Jasmine’s journey is filled with even more danger, yet again. Not only does it feel like the stakes have been raised, but the enemy’s awareness of their actions have also increased. Not only do the trio constantly face the dangers of recognition, but they similarly need to face the dangers of the maze of the beast. Not only do they not know where the maze is, but they also have no idea how to get there and avoid the dangers of the Ols and constant interaction wit...
Definitely one of the darkest and slimiest of the original series, whatwith the imagery of the Glus and the Maze (great originality with the dripping walls slowly sealing the victims in place). The visuals of The Glus are especially creepy, kudos to Rodda. And while the pirates are a bit one-note, they add a more relatable human villain element to contrast all the monsters and such. The River Queen steamboat was a fun touch. I was imagining a certain episode from Over the Garden Wall during the
The Maze of the Beast was so terrifying at the end. Liquid dripping from the walls encases people in stone. A slow but menacing monster that you can’t escape from unless you are quiet as a mouse and don’t fall asleep. Emily Rodda’s crazy imagination is so awesome but also it creeps me out so much. The River Queen scene showed that anything can happened and that Jasmine is great at disguises. Dain was a very naive but intelligent person and I wish to see him grow up some more and be able to defen...
I liked how the characters each were on a journey but it was no ordinary journey it was a very dangerous task to reach some small object beyond the end of the journey. I didn't like the points at which they were extremely close and at a very high risk of facing death and they all were at such close call.
Deltora Quest continues questing away in this as said previously all about the journey book series, and it is slowly winding its way to a conclusion, nothing too memorable, but it pushes all the right buttons at the right times to entertain you, if ever briefly.Deltora Quest #6Emily Rodda #13
ahhh i love that the more i read the more i remember things. also i love the trio so much i went on a 10-minute rant about why they're so good and work together so well + why lief is a better main hero than most... i love them so much
loved it lots of drama and new characters added in twas great cool twists and turns in there journey
I think this is my favorite in the series so far!
Great book in a gripping series!
Who doesn't love Lief's jealousy and the River Queen? This one is just as good as the others folks
Not one of my favourites but with the addition of Ols that haven't been yet introduced it added a freshness to the story.
I'm coming for the ending now......
I thoroughly enjoyed this one, especially after the pretty poor previous entry. It's packed full of weird stuff, from the Ol's, to Steven, to Chett the polypan and the pirates.
High rating due to these books getting me sucked into fantasy as a kid
Definitely wasn't as predictable as the rest though still enjoyable!
