It made for a new reading experience for me! Aug 06, Chelsea rated it it was amazing Shelves: dragons , reviewed.
Simply breathtaking. And oh so original too!!! Truly well done!!! Problems which he so eloquently pointed out himself, so there was hope at least: He was so self-centered!! At first I mean, for the love of all that is good and just, you are NOT the only one who was affected by decisions made to bring Aurora to your territory, Draco! And to throw a frigging tantrum about it many frigging tantrums you just Simply breathtaking. And to throw a frigging tantrum about it many frigging tantrums you just about permanently removed yourself from my good graces.
For craps sake man, that is just basic decency!! And then you tried to act as if you had the right to claim being the wronged party. Rolls eyes Whatever dude! Thank the Heavens though! For there was hope.
He eventually was able to man-the-heck-up and be the person Aurora needed, and he was better off for being that person. From that point on, the story was smooth sailing; well except for a couple bumps in the road, having nothing to do with Draco's attitude. It was a much more bearable read after that. Though, then again, if he wasn't a butt-head and able to overcome his problems and move on, he would be a lovesick puppy, and I think we can do without one of those every now and then.
Never in my life have a read a book that had such gaping holes in its plot that I felt lucky to have an overactive imagination to feel in some blanks. This book starts of interesting enough, it's very fast paced so were pulled right into the action immediately, with snippets of information in form of memories or thoughts that explained current situations. The world building was lacking, the wasn't much character development and even when the author to give a certain depth to a secondary Never in my life have a read a book that had such gaping holes in its plot that I felt lucky to have an overactive imagination to feel in some blanks.
The world building was lacking, the wasn't much character development and even when the author to give a certain depth to a secondary character, I didn't buy it atall and honestly I was so annoyed with the fact that important information was randomly given out without any explanation and then causally brushed off. On the bright side I really liked Aurora, she wasn't weak or whiny or overly dependent on anyone, and I loved her courage a lot, well that and the fact that it was soo refreshing to see a female who didn't wallow in self pity and didn't runaway or get overly hysterical about "mystical creatures" or her sudden interaction with magic, and I could even understand Dracos resistance to be with her at first even if it childish.
The book isn't an obvious cliffhanger but with the way the whole book was structured, almost deliberately leaving out valuable pieces of information, not to talk of the fact that the book felt very rushed while trying to create the best possible outcome with each chapter, you know that there has to more to this book then that and that Hopefully the second book would have more answers.
Nov 07, Anais rated it did not like it. This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. I actually have had this book for a while now, but I never got passed the first chapter until yesterday. If I weren't behind in my reading challenge I probably wouldn't have finished this headache of a book.
Ughhh this book had so much potential which is a shame. The relationship between the characters is something like this; Draco, "Aurora I don't want to love you but I do so I'm gonna treat you like poo, apologize, and then miraculously become a "better person" even though I haven't had enough I actually have had this book for a while now, but I never got passed the first chapter until yesterday. The relationship between the characters is something like this; Draco, "Aurora I don't want to love you but I do so I'm gonna treat you like poo, apologize, and then miraculously become a "better person" even though I haven't had enough character development to show that aside from the constant repetition of how much of a dick I was before you.
Instant love. Draco I love you so much but you're a jerk but that's okay I instantly forgive you. Also, of course miracle cure for my blindness even though part of my appeal is my blindness. Jan 09, Racheal Munoz rated it it was ok. The overall plotline I found to be interesting.
I liked the ideas put behind the book, but the pacing and the characters just did not do it for me. The relationship feels fake and completely illogical. Mind you, while I found the characters boring I did at least somewhat enjoy the book. I feel like it could have been a great novel if just a little The overall plotline I found to be interesting.
The main female character is also blind. It seemed like a good portion of the book was her being led around by everyone. And well, there are a few other parts that bugged me about this, but it would include spoilers so I will leave it at: I wish this was done better because it was a great idea.
Dec 29, Meghan rated it liked it. It's ok, but I feel like the girl was good in the beginning, but then kinda became lame. Plus, she is all independence out and about and let's the maid tuck her in at night? Dude, blind people live independently all over the world. She is I think she can tuck herself into bed.
It isn't like she has been with her since a child. She just met the lady when they moved there. That bugged me. More than it should have. I'm sure I am over reacting.
And the leading man was a duche. I'm sorry It's ok, but I feel like the girl was good in the beginning, but then kinda became lame. I'm sorry ladies, but that soul mate stuff is crap if the dude treats you bad. And then she just let's him go all super protector psycho mode in the end? And for real?

It just played out a little too much high school melodrama. I love dragon stuff, and I don't mind funny introspection of high school stuff. But this just didn't do it for me.
Jun 07, MaryKate rated it liked it. Horrible editing job! I actually liked this book. It was a short, fun read that read interesting enough to keep me flipping pages right to the end. I though the love story was cute and the characters were likable. I was hesitant about this one because the main girl is blind, and many times the author will use the mc's "disability" as an excuse.
I was pleasantly surprised with the way that the author make her self sufficient, strong and very relatable. Great job there! However, I did have a Horrible editing job! However, I did have a problem with the editing, it was awful! Eventually they discover that the Sisters are hidden in the four most eastern, northern, western and southern corners of Deltora. The Sister of the East is hidden in Dragon's Nest. The Sister of the South is hidden in the city of Del, which happens to be the hometown of Lief.
In the Deltora series, apart from the books which tell the story, there are a number of companion books. These books include the following:. The Deltora Book of Monsters : This book goes through all the monsters and other deadly things that exist in the world of Deltora. Through the original Deltora Quest to Dragons of Deltora. They go through the beasts that cause the history through certain landmarks, such as Reeah from the City of the Rats. The book is also "written" by Josef, the palace librarian in king Lief and king Alton's time.
Tales of Deltora : This book tells of how the land of Deltora came to be, how the seven gems came to be, how the Shadow Lord came to be and many other things that evolved to become secrets, that just had to be released in this highly detailed book, with 20 new illustrations by Marc McBride Illustrator , and tales that make up some of the legends.

The book was "written" by Josef, who in the Deltora Quest 2 and Deltora Quest 3 series is the palace librarian of the city Del. Outside of the Deltora universe, the book was written by Emily Rodda and published by Scholastic Press in The Land of Dragons : Although it does not have the word "Deltora" in the title, this book is related to the Deltora series. It contains many of the short stories from the original edition of Tales of Deltora , along with three additional stories which were later included in the edition of Tales of Deltora.
The former book, which details the drawing of Deltoran monsters, was more associated with Marc McBride than Emily Rodda, seeing that he is the illustrator. In the back of the paperback version of Shadows of the Master there is also an author's note that states that Rowan of Rin , The Three Doors and Deltora Quest are set in the same world.

Barda describes Lief as "a young hot-head" who spends his time roaming the streets and both tempting and dodging trouble. On his 16th birthday he leaves Del on his father's quest to find the magical gems missing from the Belt of Deltora and the heir destined to wear it. Lief is tempted in many ways and by the end of the first series he has grown not only in bravery and strength, but also in wisdom and patience. Lief is very courageous and extremely trustworthy.
A few times he considers giving up the quest, but the thought of his friends or allies suffering always helps him to continue. The second series sees the characters questioning their trust of one another as they plot to save the slaves in the Shadowlands.
