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!
