Format: Mass Market Paperback
Lief, Jasmine, and Barda have now destroyed two of the Four Sisters. Now they must continue their dangerous quest as they search for the third sister, the Sister of the West, who lies hidden somewhere on the dangerous and deserted Isle of the Dead. Their journey there may be one of their most dangerous and horrifying adventures yet. Lief and Barda are separated from Jasmine during a terrible storm at sea and find themselves aboard a mysterious, apparently deserted ship called The Lady Luck, where many terrifying dangers lurk and they must solve a mystery from years past in order to escape.
Emily Rodda has written another thrilling fantasy adventure, and readers who loved the previous Deltora books won't want to miss this third exciting adventure in the Dragons of Deltora quartet, and will eagerly await the conclusion in the next book.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
If you are looking at this book's reviews I assume that you have read or are familiar with the "Deltora Quest" series, or at least the first two books, ("Dragon's Nest" and "Shadowgate"), of this later "Dragons of Deltora" series. If not, you are well advised to go back to at least the beginning of the Dragons series.

This book is a fine addition to the Deltora canon, and it seems clear that Rodda has been trying to make each succeeding volume deeper, richer, and more densely plotted than its predecessors. Accordingly, this really is a series that a reader can grow with, volume by volume. It's just that good.

Here's the caution. I read these from time to time, but not all at once and not even that close together. This book was the first one for which I really had to pause and try to remember which minor character was which. It happens to a lesser extent in the other books, but in this one we really have a lot of appearances by characters who figured heavily in earlier books. If you don't well remember those earlier books, it can start to get confusing. So, don't let too much time pass between episodes. (For what it's worth, someone has devoted a lot of time and energy to summarizing each Deltora book on Wikipedia. Under "Dragons of Deltora" there are articles summarizing plots, and articles describing each major and minor character. If you need a refresher, Wikipedia is the way to go.)

So, good reading. See you in the South.
