One Comment to The Shifting Sands

  1. Emily Rodda real name Jennifer Rowe was born in Sydney, Australia and graduated from the University of Sydney in 1973 with an MA Hons in English Literature Moving into a publishing career, first as a book editor, and finally as a publisher at Angus Robertson, Rodda s first book was published in 1984.

  2. Deltora book four Leaf and friends need to find the fourth gem I liked the fighting tournament and, particularly, the twists afterwards The ramp up to the climax was my favorite in the series so far The relationship among the main characters is getting interesting, too.

  3. Like the third book, I felt that this installation in the Deltora Quest series took the whole thing away from the Adventure part But halfway through The Riftwere Games , which took at LEAST half of the book, I wanted the book to go back to the adventure Surely the reason why the focus was so little placed on the gemstone and so much on this weird competition full of characters we don t know or get to care about much in a place that is entirely unfamiliar with stakes that are entirely trivial to [...]

  4. Honestly, this book was kind of awesome I feel like I forgot of it than I had in the books before, so it was kind of cool re discovering certain things Like the bees I forgot about the bees I did remember how there was an almost Hunger Games kind of situation before the actual Hunger Games books were even published, so that was pretty cool too.But yeah Lief is dramatic Jasmine is awesome Barda is officially the worst at coming up with fake names Berry From Bushtown And these are my friends Bird [...]

  5. Leaving the City of Rats, an Ak Baba, or a flying beast loyal to the shadow lord is spotted in the distance trying to figure out what has happened to the city of rats In a panic the heroes duck in the water under Lief s cloak in an attempt to remain unseen lest their mission be ended before it begins Whether or not this would have worked remains to be seen, as they are saved by some intelligent fish who almost drown them, but in the process hide them thoroughly from the Shadow lords pet Just as [...]

  6. The Shifting Sands by Emily Rodda is an awesome book It is the 4th book in Deltora Quest series which follows three travelers The travelers are Lief, Barda, and Jasmine, their quest is to restore the seven gems of Deltora back to the belt In this book they are heading to the Shifting Sands to get the fourth gem Along the way the get involved in a fighting game carnival and some trouble with grey guards Will they get to Shifting Sands and if they do get there will they survive I personally enjoy [...]

  7. Step four in the Deltora Quest series is a little less thrilling than the first three for me , but it is still a great journey Lief, Barda and Jasmine again run into the mysterious rebellion leader, Doom, they are forced to battle in a gladiator style contest, and, as always, they finally triumph over a completely unknown foe Yet, it just doesn t quite have the fast pace of the first three books, and not as many riddles throughout the story And, after all, the reason I ve always loved this serie [...]

  8. well this book had a very interesting and exciting plot it takes a large turn in the story where rather then the heros in the book are still in search of the next jemstone they begin to look for a way to find supplies and mostly gold the majority of the book is their adventure inside the games in a city where the last champion standing in the tourniment will win 1000 gold peices and finialests will win 100 gold before entering the games they run into a very sucessful shopkeeper with so many sive [...]

  9. Okay, I figured I d write a review.It s probably a bit weird of me to be reading these books considering I m a 22 year old female, but I never read them as a kid so what the heck.The books so far are generally pretty good for such a young audience I understand why they are well liked However, this book didn t make the cut.The whole competition that took up majority of the book ruined the book in my opinion It reminded me of The Hunger Games but not as good I felt as if the whole book consisted o [...]

  10. Cerita keempat tentang petualangan Lief, Barda, n Jasmine dalam menemukan 7 permata Deltora yg direbut Raja Bayangan dan disebar serta disembunyikan di 7 tempat paling menyeramkan di tanah Deltora.Di cerita ini, kita mengenal daerah tengah ke utara dari negeri Deltora Kota Rithmere yg mereka datangi ternyata sedang mengadakan Sayembara Rithmere Mendapatkan sekutu tak terduga, dan hasil Sayembara yg tak disangka.Bunda Brightly yg begitu mereka percayai ternyata merupakan anak buah Raja Bayangan, [...]

  11. Another great installment Seth and I have been having a blast reading these books together Man What other amazing children s fantasy fiction stories did I miss out on because I never found a love for reading when I had to read Just another reason to be thankful to my children Another curse turned blessing Not only did I develop a love for reading when I was forced to help my first child with his reading, but now that it is fully developed, I can enjoy reading with all four of my boys I love shar [...]

  12. Another read aloud This one I snuck out of the boys room last night after reading chapter five to them so I could finish it on the couch I really like these books In this, the fourth book, the three companions are fleeing the burning City of Rats and soon find themselves on the road to Rithmere Desperately in need of supplies and coin, they travel to the city when they hear that contestant are swarming to the town to win 1.000 pieces of gold in a contest With pockets empty, they decide to compet [...]

  13. A fun series that is remarkably well written Though written for a younger audience it is worth reading even for adults due to the skill with which the world is crafted.

  16.

  17. One of the things I like about this series, despite being written to a formula, the ending is in random spots in the story They are looking for jewels scattered across the map so basic formula, they leave the region of the last jewel run into trouble finding the new jewel, overcome that jewel, and recoup for the next leg But the author sometimes has leaving the region at the beginning of a book or the end of the previous book Sometimes they find the jewel and the story ends Sometimes they find t [...]

  18. In this book they leave the rat city Now Lief and his friends go towards rithmere In Rithmere they play a game so that they could win money Jasmine plays and finds her skill I connect this book to me because when i play a game i find something about myself I find my skill and special ability s That is why i can connect to this part of the book I m sure that other people can relate as well.Like the last book i didn t get so into the book I barely finished it The first book was the best I need to [...]

  20. When the seven gems of magic Belt of Deltora where stolen, the evil Shadow Lord invaded the kingdom and enslaved its people Determined to rid their land of tyrant, Lief, Barda and Jasmine are on a dangerous quest to find the lost gems which are hidden in fearsome places throughout the kingdom They have found three gems Now they must seek the fourth, hidden in a shimmering barren waste, kept jealously by an unknown guardian Separation, confusion, and strange, terrible enemies await Lief, Barda an [...]

  21. Out of money and apparently luck too the three heroes decide to compete in a sporting tournament to raise funds They win, not knowing that this will make them prime candidates to be captured as slaves and sent to be gladiators in public entertainments in the Shadowlands However, they are rescued by the ever surprising Doom and make their way to the Shifting Sands to find the lapis lazuli from the belt of Deltora To be honest the ending was a slight let down mainly due to the guardian of the gem [...]

  22. This book is a great book because it has action it is suspenseful and the plot is amazing he has to find all of the gems before the shadow lord finds the heir to the city of deltora and kills him if the shadow lords does find him then deltora and the rest of the world will be doomed and each gem has a power to help him on his way like the opal gives a glimpse to the future if you touch the ruby pales in the presence of evil and also cures venom.Overall i think this is a great book i recommend pe [...]

  23. Wow, best of the series so far Maybe because I really like fighting tournaments in my books I also liked that there were three different conmen, as those types of characters are often interesting Lastly, the creatures in the sand like on the cover and the guardian of the stone are very cool conceptually so than previous guardians.Rating PG for some action fantasy violence SPOILERS AHEAD The sand itself as a living creature It treasures things that are slow to corrode or decay Very cool ideas, th [...]

  24. A great continuation of the series While the characters get a little irriating as they often seem almost hopelessly clueless as to what to do next at one point, Kree,the bird has to advise them because they couldn t figure out a simple solution for themselves , but the writing is good and I love the story A great adventure book for young readers I cannot wait to read the rest of the series as the companions venture to find the last three gems.

  25. Again the quest goes on and this book continues the great tale Emily Rodda weaves But this part of the quest seems even impossible than the others And they meet someone from the last quest who seems to be out to stop them Some of the strangest creatures yet appear in this book The writing is great and the story fresh Amazing how she comes up with new adventure in each book as they search for the seven gems Don t miss this one.
