Secrets of Deltora Rating: 5


Author: Emily Rodda

No successful series is ever without its companion book. That’s why Emily Rodda, author of the Deltora Quest series, has created a fantastical guide called Secrets of Deltora. This 167 page volume takes you through Deltora, the Land of Dragons, to refresh your memory or to give you some extra tidbits about the land.


A Look at the Territories

Twice the size of the books in the series, Secrets of Deltora has a striking hardback cover with a 3D image of a dragon on the front. On the very first page, you’ll find a colorful fold-out map of Deltora showing you the placement of each gemstone-named territory (Amethyst Territory, Ruby Territory, etc), as well as the surrounding waters.


In Which Dragon Tribe Do You Belong?

This guide, written by the character Doran, moves from one territory to the next, teaching you about the resident dragons and showing you how to figure out which dragon tribe you belong to based on their individual traits. Are you kind and slow to anger like those in the Ruby Territory, or are you stern and war-like like those in the Emerald Territory?


People and Places

As Doran moves through the territories, you’ll learn about the different types of people and creatures, like the Masked Ones and Polypans, as well as towns and cities such as Raladin and the City of Hira. You’ll also learn about the dangers in Deltora, like Coffin Pods and the Ak-Baba, and different safety precautions you can take while traveling through the land.


The Bottom Line

Secrets of Deltora is a very comprehensive, and not to mention colorful and attractive, guide to Deltora. If you’re a fan of the Deltora Quest series by Emily Rodda, then this book is a definite must have!

    {I don't know much about Outertale, so pardon me if I get this wrong, but it takes place in space, right? You'll have to help me a bit. .} (("Um... Ok!" Papyrus accepts the sketchbook, opening it to a fresh page. "What do I do first?"))

    "I'm fine, but thank you for the offer though!" Blue said happily, looking up for a moment, before continuing his work. (the story seems to be going nowhere in Underswap... a suggestion of visiting Outertale has been given)  (PunMaster smiled. "It's not too hard. You just have to practice. Want me to show you?" She offered)

    {Oh. Well. I had hoped we could've done something with that... but, nvm then.} (Just saying, when a Sans uses a "short-cut", I like to pretend they creates a wormhole that goes into the void. Iron teleports, which is him warping space and time to make himself be in another place. He uses this power to also travel to other universes.)  When I saw nothing in that infinite nothing, I returned to my-... No, their house. I could smell spices and meat cooking, the scent wafting from an open window. ​I teleported into the kitchen to see Blue, as he had said, cooking tacos. ​"Need any help?" I had been cooking for myself most of the time, since I was almost never at home with Paps, so I had acquired some skill in the matter. ((Papyrus begins to see his face etched into the paper. "Wow! You're amazing! I-.. I couldn't do anything like that..."))

    Papyrus was indeed not in the void. He'd been in the middle of teleporting to his room.  (She didn't respond for a little bit, erasing a few ghost like lines that worked as the original faint outline. "Us." She responded)

    In the blink of an eye-socket, I had scanned the entire underground, blinking in and out of reality to check every possible location. ​He wasn't there. ​I checked the only other place left, teleporting into the infinite black that is the void. "Hello? Papyrus? Please tell me you're not in here. Did I miss you somewhere?" ​(("What are you drawing?" Papyrus couldn't tell from the early sketch.))
