Recommends it for: To everyone
First I have to confess that I've begun listening to Deltora Quest after I have watched the anime made based on these books and realising, that the books tell the story further.
I considered skipping the first eight books as I believed that they will be the same as what I've already seen, but in fear that I'd miss out on something I started with the first book.
And I was right to do so, as this book, too, contained new or simply differently told events I truly enjoyed. For example Theagan's de
I thought this book was pretty cool. meeting scary creatures who want to eat you and it seems like there is no way to escape...

The second Deltora Quest book isn't as good as the first. I expected a lot from it since the first book is one of my favorite books. I like the new character we meet who's name we don't know because he can't talk. I think he will play a huge part in the books because he is from Tora. The only good parts of the book are when they are fighting the sorcerers from the lake and when they fight the monster living in the lake.

I gave this book 2 out of 5 stars because it is very boring. There is no acti

I love how clever these books are, and Rodda always finds a way to top herself with all of the great riddles and little twists she adds - like ow connected everything is with Dij and Doj and the bridge guardian and the sorceress.
Not to mention Rodda adds the dimension of how awful things really are, even in the face of success. You never forget how tenuous things are while reading; there's not much assurance that they'll succeed until, by the seat of their pants, they think of something on the s

3.5 stars. This series is pretty good but I wish I'd read it as a child.

As with the first book in this series, The Forests of Silence, I felt that when finally faced with the terrible and wicked creatures, the battles were not very battle like at all. The events that lead to the defeat of the sorceress, for example, was very anticlimactic. The author lingered on her children though, and those were fun and intriguing chapters. I love finding out about the pasts of the creatures and characters met along the way. The curious blue race that were mute, the monstrous and ...more

I liked this book because it has a lot of cool things it also has a lot of action and it is interesting. I would recommend this book to a classmate because from the beginning the book was interesting. If i had to rate is i would give it a 10. There is a series and I am going to continue the series because I enjoy these kind of books. I hope some classmate gets to read all the series. If I had to choose this series to some other series i would choose this series. So if you have a chance to read i ...more

In the prequel - The Forests of Silence - Lief, Barda and Jasmine manage to acquire the Topaz, the first of seven gems of the fabled Belt of Deltora. The trio's next destination is The Lake of Tears, where they will aim to acquire the coming gem (the Ruby) and face the next jeopardous guardian.

Gee, the world of Deltora sure is interesting, but I definitely wouldn't want to live in it! *Laughs* A lot of freaky things happen in this book, making it scarier than the first one. (MY OPINION.) The two 'friendly' sorcerers talking backwards was creepy, them being revealed as evil was creepy, the monster at the end was creepy, and WAHRGHHHH...! No comic relief either. Hang on to your seats, kiddos. You're in for a dark (yet incredibly fun) adventure.

The storyline to Deltora Quest keeps getting better and better. The characters have a lot of will and power, and they're always ready to face any challenge that meets them head on. They have gotten stronger because of their new companion, Jasmine, and an advantage to see what's coming up because of her pet crow, Kree. Their companionship has helped them in the story greatly and has will help them get stronger as the serie continues.
This was a great book(like the rest of the series) and I highly recommend it to anyone with a taste for adventure and a love for fantasy. This series definitely fulfills my expectations for any fantasy epic(good story lines, hard to put down, almost addictive, adventurous, big monsters, long books/series). The way the Ruby was obtained was (in my opinion) genius! (spoiler, if wanted to be skipped, go 1.5 lines down) the way it was with the weeping stone is amazing and the way the creature of the ...more

The second installation in the series. It is pretty much along the same lines. There is not much introspection, a lot of action, and several neat but shallow characters.

The books definitely follow a formula. Start journey, meet new character, fall into lap of dangerous place they are looking for, meet main boss, defeat main boss, celebrate. This time the new character returned home instead of going with them.

I really wanted to like the Deltora Quest series. I read Rodda's Rowan of Rin series to my 7 year-old son and we both loved every one of the books. However, all the things I loved about the Rowan books were missing in the DQ books: the unlikely hero, rich, interesting, respectable characters, and communities, an imaginative plot and unexpected twists and turns in exciting journeys and adventures.

I made it through the first two books of the Deltora Quest series, barely. I started the third book w
The best part by far was the cherubic grandma and grandpa with their strange language and 'Live No Evil' cross stitching above the fireplace, who *spoilers* we learn are actually backwards speaking evil monsters, whose cross stitching is supposed to be read as 'Live On Evil'. The fact that these gross, evil troll monsters keep cross stitchings in the first place is tragically glossed over in the book. Did they make it themselves? It's adorable.
this book was about this dude and his two friend's search for the lost gems from the belt of deltora. they have two go through the lands that belong to this evil witch. in the center of her woods is a lake, a lake called the lake of tears. they believe that is where one of the gems of deltora lies.
this book reminds me of Eragon. in that book, Eragon finds out that he is a dragon rider and flys a lot. he goes on a search for this city. they both search for something.... Eragon is waaaaaay cooler.

This is the second book in Deltora quest written by Emily Rodda. I had a feeling that this book would be wrose than the first book because like most movies the first movie is always the best. I was proven wrong after reading Lake of Tears, it had alot of Puzzle's in it which are fun to try to figure out, but sooner or later if you keep reading the character's in the book will solve the problems. I think that this was a very fun book to read and the age group this is more intended to is 7-12 year ...more

I think it a nice book with good twists and riddles so it's fun enjoyable with the new palace and new caracter Emily Rodder has a good idea for this book so I think you should read this book
The Lake of Tears is about Leaf trying to find the second gem. Leaf, Barda, and Jasmine go looking for the gem in the Lake of Tears. They find some guy who tries to make them solve the riddles so they can cross the bridge. Leaf and his friends get the gem.

I made a text-to-text connection. I connect this book to the first one. I believe that Jasmine's parents are the prince and his wife. The Prince and his wife disappeared after being attacked by the shadow lord and Jasmine was abandoned. So mayb

the bridge trick a bit old, but the writer gave a little twist. although it's seem not all thanks to Lief's wit alone. and the blood-sucking, flesh-eating creatures of the lake was really, really disgusting.
Having not read the previous volume, I was surprised how easy it was to follow the story. Then again, it is aimed at children!

Lief has to find the seven stones of the Belt of Deltora so that he can defeat the Shadow Lord. This is the second volume, so he's looking for the second stone. Running up against the sorceress Thaegan and her monstrous children, he and his companions have to fight through to the Lake of Tears where the stone is hidden.

Children will probably like this and there's some gre

I like to read children's and teen books occasionally to keep up with my grandchildren so I chose a book from this series. It's a good read for youth. The companions: Leif, Barda, and Jasmine are on a quest to find the seven gems of the magic belt of Deltora. The gems are a diamond, a topaz, a ruby, an opal, an amethyst, a lapis lazuli, and an emerald. At the beginning of this book they have only one gem - the topaz. Their journey to the Lake of Tears leads them through several adventures which ...more

Episode/adventure two in the Deltora Quest series, and it IS an adventure! Even at my advanced age I enjoyed it, even if the intended audience is about 8-12 years old. Some stuff is reminiscent of Indiana Jones or a very scaled down version of the Lord of the Rings, but what the hey, it's fun! Only reason fdor the three stars only is the fact that I have already read s bunch of fantasy books for adult raders. On to #3!
