The Isle of Illusion was written by Emily Rodda, and it was the second book to Deltora Shadowlands. Leif had brought a wife from Tora to Deltora, but it was a secret. Her name was Marilen. In the book, they also found the Deltora Annuals which lies a map to find the hidden secrets and stories of the Pirran Pipe. Leif left to find the second part of the Pirran Pipe in Auron with Jasmine and Barda. They fought with Arachs to achieve their goal, and they succeeded. Now their next goal was to find t ...more

There weren't as many puzzles in this one as I would have liked to see, and I felt the solution to finding the next Pipe piece was a bit rushed, but this series is much, much darker than either of the other two series that come before and after it. I like that Rodda took risks, that she illustrated just how evil and just how cunning The Shadowlord is. She spared no expense making sure that the reader never forgot how dangerous and vile his work is, how far-reaching and calculated his plans are.

The second of the three adventures is completed in this book. But it also is building on secrets still not revealed. This book doesn't let down one bit from all the others that has lead to this point. And again the three companions work together to face incredible challenges to find the second of three parts of the magical pipe. Giant monsters and a strange people move them closer but to what....death?But the book also deals with what is happening back at the castle and the attempts of the Shado ...more

These books are surprisingly good, they are sort of like Lord of the Rings for grade schoolers. And by that I mean the story line is a little more simplified and easier to read. I happened to pick these up at my libraries book sale, because the covers are really unique, so far I'm not disappointed. They're also really helpful in catching me up on my reading challege. Looking forward to finishing up this series and moving onto the other series called Dragons of Deltora.

Prozatím asi nejslabší kniha z Deltory. Nevím, sice se mi líbí nápad podzemní země, ale nějak extra mě tento díl neuchvátil. Jediné, co stálo za to, bylo asi dění v Del.

THE ISLE OF ILLUSION is the third book in the DELTORA SHADOWLANDS series. In this book Leif, Barda, and Jasmine venture to the island of Auron seeking the stem of the Pirran Pipe. On the way he will make new friends, new enemies, and learn of new monsters. I would recomend this book to anyone who likes adventure stories and fantasies. I liked this book a lot. This book has 146 pages.

Tejemahannya kapan-kapan yah.

Ini cerita Lief, Barda, n Jasmine dalam rangka pencarian Seruling Pirra untuk membebaskan rakyat Deltora yang ditawan di Negeri Bayangan.

Setelah melewati mulut gua cahaya temaram, mereka sampai di gua yang dindingnya memantulkan cahaya pelangi.

This one took so long to get from the library it took a while for me to remember what was happening in the series. Once I got into it, I enjoyed it quite a bit. These are not deep thinking books but fun light reading.

I didn't enjoy the changing perspectives. But it kept my attention! Also, who the heck yells, "Beware!" when there is danger ahead? Haha!! I thought that was kind of odd. ^^''

I liked this series more than I did the rest of her Deltora books. Her style of writing seemed to do better in these books than in the Quest and the Dragons series.
