Lief, Barda, and Jasmine continue on their quest for the gems from the Belt of Deltora. They meet a group of helpful Kin who fly the companions to the Kins’ original homeland, Dread Mountain. There the three must battle a Vraal, the Dread Gnomes, and Gellick, the evil guardian of the fifth gem.
The only problem with finishing Dread Mountain was knowing there are only three more books left to read in the Deltora Quest series. While the stories are formulaic (something kids like my 7 and 9 year old boys – and, I’ll be honest, I – love in reading books), there is something special about the relationship between Lief, Barda, and Jasmine that makes me feel like I am hanging out with my own old friends. I highly recommend this book, and the entire series, to everyone. It makes a great family read aloud!
