Lief, Barda, and Jasmine have found and destroyed the first of the four poisonous creations of the evil Shadow Lord, and now they must find the second, which is hidden in the mountains that border the Shadowlands.
This book is Volume 2 of the Dragons of Deltora series. In the Quest series, each volume concerns a search for one of the gems that fits in the magic belt of Deltora. In this series, our heroes must find and destroy the Four Sisters, one per volume.
Now, all of this sounds like the same book, over and over again. But, Rodda keeps each book fresh. She keeps an eye on the arc of each series, but gives each individual book its own appeal. That is quite a feat.
Rodda's Rowan of Rin is for younger readers and is a great introduction to quest fantasy. These books are the next step. Deeper characters, more complex plot, more demanding writing style. But again, a wonderful introduction to quest fantasy and very accessible and very satisfying.
This book was the second exciting adventure in the third Deltora series, Dragons of Deltora. Readers who enjoyed all the previous Deltora books are sure to want to read this one as well, and I highly recommend it.
