I honestly really like this book. Even though this book is made for the younger kids i still love the story line and the characters. I find myself trying to find books like it in the YA and Adult book and i havent had any luck. This series is one of my favorites along with the Dragons of Deltora and The Shadowlands. This story is all about friendship and the race to save Deltora. Normally when a story has a plot about saving a kingdom, their is less about the friendship and trust the hero's have with each other an more about the action and adventure of it all, not Deltora Quest. It has a nice mixture of both.
