The Forests of Silence (Deltora Quest #1)Hot
This book is really great for young (I'd say starting at 9) readers. I don't think more mature readers would grasp and enjoy this book as much but it's a great fantasy book. It starts out when the king of Adin dies mysteriously, his young son, Endon takes his place. Endon's best friend Jarred is a poor boy whose parents worked in the palace. Jarred tried to warn Endon of treachery but is thrown out of the palace by a grieving Endon. Jarred leaves the palace to find the town outside of it has been neglected. He becomes a blacksmith and gets married, and Endon marries and continues to be king. The main focus is the Belt of Deltora, which was made eons ago, to protect the lands from the evil sorcerer. The king is supposed to wear it all the time, but through the years they have become lax and lazy and only put it on once, when they are crowned. Many years after all of this (6 or 7 I believe) the gems from the Belt of Deltora are stolen by the Shadow Lords evil birds and scattered everywhere. Jarred helps Endon and his pregnant wife (Jarred's wife is also pregnant) escape the palace and puts them in hiding. 16 years later the lands are ruled by the Shadow Lord. This is when Jarred's son, Lief learns from his parents all that happened and they give him the choice of going to find all of the scattered gems so the Belt of Deltora can be restored and the Shadow Lord can be destroyed. He agrees and sets off with an old palace guard Barda to find the first gem in the forest of silence.
Many things happen in this book, they get captured by monsters, meet a free-spirited girl named Jasmine who agrees to help them out more times than one. They must fight a immortal-seeking, body controlling creature called Gorl to try to "win" the first gem. This book is very interesting and original. I recommend it to lovers of fantasy books.

So...You've stumbled upon the Deltora Quest series, eh? Well, let me tell you what!!
At first this series looked boring and "childish" to me...until, that is, until I read them!
The Forests of Silence is book number one in the Deltora Quest series. I began reading them because I had run out of other books to read (time to make a new list!!) even though that sounds impossible! And I was going to sop when I found a book that really caught my eye....but in the end I ended up reading them all! I hope you enjoy them too!
Young Lief and his companion,Barda,set out for the Forests of Silence.On the way,they meet an orphan,Jasmine,who's mother was killed by Grey Gaurds.After Jasmine comes into the book,they find out about Jasmine's secret...............
This book is higly recommended!It's an excellent book and thrilling!!

Only when they find them all will they be able to save Deltora from the grip of the Shadow Lord. Lief must fight a terrible foe to find the first gem in the forests of silence.
This book has a creative plot and it is very suspenseful. It will keep you on the edge of your seat and make you want to read on.
The Forest of Silence is an exalent and well writen book perfect for anyone who wants to read a realy good adventure book.
The book is writen by Emily Rodda.
Leif, Barda, and Jasmine are looking for the dimond, but first they have some obsticles to overcome, including a RAVING MAD MAN with theses super FREAKY monsters attached to his hand by flesh. EEEEEEEEEW!!!!! Leif, Barda, and JAsmine have some work cut out for them as they enter a battle of wits. PLUS at the palace-type-thingy they find hundreds more of the super freaky monsters, but the twist is majorly shocking.
YOU MUST READ
this book shows off the talent of emily rodda at her finest. I found this book to contain a certain air of dark vs. good. The ending of the book though comes out as a bit of a twist!
the other books in this series follow in line with this one...great!
there, are, of course other series written by emily rodda yet this one is probably the best...for boys anyway...like me! though i would not expect every single girl to enjoy this fine piece of written art-work.
it is a must read for readers who like fabtasy yet do not like the big bulky fantasy.
****-four stars!!!!! great,superb,complex!
This book, along with the whole series of Deltora books, is the best book I have ever read! Right now I am on the Deltora Shadowlands series, which is also excellent. So read it people!!!
