Lief, Barda, and Jasmine set out to gather the seven tribes to renew their vow to Adin and the Belt of Deltora. The belt warms to tell Lief the heir is in the room – so it must be himself, Dain, or Jasmine just based on ages – but as they are realizing who it is, Ichabod attacks and carries one of them away, to Del. Plans are laid to return to Del, but Doom is right, there is a spy in their midst. Finally, everything is revealed, the heir is found, and Doom discovers just who he is.
I loved this last installment of Deltora Quest just as much as I loved the previous seven books. Lief, Barda, and Jasmine feel so real and like friends to me that I am always a little sad when I complete Return to Del. I very highly recommend this book and the entire Deltora Quest series to people of all ages. They make a wonderful family read aloud!
