Reviews about Deltora Quest #5: Dread Mountain (7):
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!
I read these as a kid and finding them on the Kindle has been amazing. I got to revisit the world that I was so fond of. Rodda's writing is superb and even as an adult I find myself drawn into the story and unable to put down the novels as I did as a kid. Would recommend as series to kids interested in fantasy fiction.
My 9-year-old granddaughter and I are reading the whole Delta Quest series together. I am enjoying the books as much as she is! They are well written and filled with imaginative plot twists. They also support the values of friendship, loyalty and honor. I would recommend Dread Mountain -- and all the other books in the series to anyone who is interested in fantasy literature.
See the review l wrote and posted for Delta Quest # 1: The Forests of Silence regarding the entire Deltora Quest series of books. I initially purchased books 1-5 as a Christmas gift for my great-grandson. I have since gone back to Amazon and order the remaining four books in the series. The tenth book in the series is being released in Jan. 2013 and will become part of his collection on his birthday in May/
Son loves this series
I guess it is time to go to the Shadowlands and continue the quest! Onward with strength and knowledge! The belt and its wearer are getting stronger! Closer to destroying the Shadow Lord.
Certainly not a classic but still a fun and entertaining casual read. Will continue with the series.
