5 Stars, Golden & Completealways try solving this puzzle in this book with the characters & enjoy it all the way, which had a shocking answer. other riddles were fun & great, but after this many times re-read I know all the answers or where its trick was, but this one needs to be thought over every time. I picking up the clues to solve it. it's mysterious & the result is... wow... the author knows how to drop a plot twist! I loved it. felt like all those puzzle-play books I used to solve as a ki...
there are Interesting puzzles in this book and actually in these books, which involves readers mind and make it more and more interesting!
I'm fairly certain that as a kid this was my favourite of the Deltora Quest books. Back then I loved the change from fighting the monsters with brute force or trickery, to fighting the monster using logic and reason and completing riddles. This novel started with the aftermath of the last one (as they all do really), with Leif, Barda and Jasmine attempting to go to the Valley of the Lost, and trying to stay in hiding and away from any Ols that might try to kill them. After realising that they ca...
Read- May 2020- At this point I'm just excited for this series to be over because I haven't truly loved any of the books.
This one was good but not as great as the previous ones to me. The puzzle I think was great. The next book finishes the series so I hope they finish out strong.
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!Ooooooookay, I can see what the goal was. I can see how I would have been mad annoyed as a kid. This one just didn't touch me in the feels the way how the previous ones did. The whole name guessing aspect was interesting. I enjoyed the riddles and the puzzle, but I
I didn't like the book thought it was boring
My favourite one in many ways. There are riddles, there is a plot, it feels like a proper continuation of the sixth book. It explains so many things that the reader might have been wondering about. (view spoiler)[Where would the king and queen hide? Are they hidden there? Why were they supposed to start at the Valley of the Lost? (hide spoiler)]It also gives characters more depth. Dain returns in this book, Doom shows his face again. Narida (???) who was introduced in book 4 plays a minor but s...
If you have missed the puzzles and riddles, you're in luck. This is the most puzzle-heavy of the seven books so far. It is also the one that devotes the most page time to Lief et al's battle with the guardian. Though it isn't really a battle in the traditional sense of the word. We learn more about Doom in this book, but he is still shrouded in mystery. Mysteries which I expect will be unravelled in the final book. I mean, I know how it ends, but I'm still looking forward to it anyway, because t...
WOW. This is probably my favorite so far of the series. It has the best puzzles that I could not solve myself. It had THE BIGGEST PLOT TWIST, and then laughed in your face about it. The book gave you the same urgency as any of the rest when it came to solving the problem to get the stone, but in a completely different way - no monster, no collapsing anything. The main characters didn't rely on their special magic item as a deus ex machina. The lessons were really dark, but realistic and truthful...
This excellent installment was quite ridden with frustration and disappointment at every turn. The best part, according to my son (and also to me!) was the solving of the riddle. They did it completely by their wits, no magic or powers of gem stones helped out. I can't believe I left the last book at home. Now we'll have to wait until we get back from vacation.... :-(
Twisty-turning, suspenseful, puzzling, thought-you-finally-figured-it-out-but-you-were-wrong kind of book
Star Rating: 5 stars Note: This is the 7th book in the Deltora Quest series as well as book 7 in the overarching Deltora universe so this will not be an in-depth review. When I was a child, my mother bought me a box set of the Deltora Quest series from my class’s book order, and I spent a lot of childhood reading all 8 books over and over. Later, I realized there was two companion series, but I could never get my hands-on copies to read. However, I decided to buy them recently from a used-books
This might be the last gem for the belt of Deltora, but it is definitely not the last step on the journey. The gems may all get restored to the belt, but they still need the heir, and Lief is so very aware of this as they travel towards the Valley of the Lost. But, like the rest of the gems, it is not just a simple means of finding where the gem is hidden – they have to battle the guardian to win it. Just, in this case, the battle is one of wits that the trio can’t afford to lose.Del’s sister ci...
Love that my copy of this book is sparkly like a diamond. Wonder why it has that extra fancy design element and the others in the original series don't? Though I do know the 3rd Dragon series has some pretty sparkly covers going, so my nerdy book manufacturing side will be assuaged.Like some have noted already, the excellence in this penultimate novel is through the time the characters spend with this final Guardian. One of the criticisms of the other six is that the characters don't encounter t...
Unlike the previous book in the series, this book feels like it wastes no time in getting started and bringing the action to the reader. The only dull moment is the uneventful time period when they leave Tora and head to the Forests where the next gem is suspected to be located. From this point on I had a really hard time putting the book down. The guardian is so intriguing, and the puzzle is a brain-teaser. It is a little disappointing that someone the heroes know solved the riddle first but re...
This book was a really good book. It told the story of how Barda, Lief, and Jasmine had to find The Valley of the Lost. They were looking for a gem that needed to be placed on The Belt of Deltora. On the way to the valley, they encountered whom they had know as "Doom". When they reached the valley, they had to play "The Guardian's Game". They had to solve a riddle of what The Guardian's name really is.
like every other previous part of This series called Deltora Quest, this eighth and penultimate book of the series too has a fast-paced story and condensed and good storytelling for kids. In hundred-odd pages, this book is worth every minute spent on it. Interestingly, this book has no grappling, struggling, hustling in it this time. No fight, none at all. The contest is one of wits and the adversaries are true of their word.
The Valley of the Lost is the second to last book in the Deltora Quest series. There are two very unexpected twists that make it quite exciting. I highly recommend this book and all the other books in the Deltora Quest series.
This is the best one so far. Loved all the riddles and the plot twists and discoveries they make. Some are oh-so obvious while others are a proper shock.I need to read the next one around about now please. Desperate to find out if my theories are correct.
No more messing about, I'm focussed on the quest now, and going to pump through these, and finish the journey, the book, well its more of the same really, the journey though is coming to a conclusion.Deltoraa Quest #7Emily Rodda #14
ahhhh this one was Pure Fun! i loved the riddle and even tried to solve them before the characters, it made me That excited :') and the way i love doom more and more aaaaa i feel so sorry for him :c my own son :c
I LOVE reading this to my daughter!I started this series to read to my eleven year old daughter before bed, and was pleasantly surprised to enjoy it. Now I anticipate bed time reading, and see how the characters develop and the story unfold.
Definitely one of the better books in the Deltora series! Loved the intrigue and game that was involved in guessing. I am looking forward to concluding the series, and maybe move onto the next.. who knows
loved it just another one in the series with more challenges they have to face loved it one of the best by far
Brilliant book with a great mystery puzzle at the end.
These books are living up to their nostalgic value for me. I especially enjoyed this one, the quest for the last gem.
Very exciting, containing puzzles.
Great read, and makes up for the severe lack of puzzles in the previous book. Had a lot of fun with this one as a kid. Good spooky atmosphere for the valley, and more Doom backstory.
