AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'When the evil Shadow Lord plots to invade Deltora and enslave its people all that stands between him and victory is the magic Belt of Deltora which holds seven gems of great and mysterious power. When the gems are stolen it appears that Deltora is lost and the Shadow Lord will triumph. However, two unlikely companions set out on a perilous quest to find the gems and bring them back so that the rightful ruler can regain the throne. Together they enter the sinister Forests of Silence and there the mystery begins.' (Source: Back cover)
