Publisher's Summary

Lief, Barda, and Jasmine are on a perilous quest to find the seven lost gems of the magic belt of Deltora. Only when all the gems have been restored to the belt can Deltora be freed from the tyranny of the evil Shadow Lord. Four gems have been found. Now, though grave news reaches Lief from home, and he longs to return, the quest must continue. To find the fifth stone the heroes must venture almost to the border of the Shadowlands, and plunge into the darkness and terror of the realm of the monstrous toad Gellick - Dread Mountain.

Neverending Story meets Spiderwick Chronicles

Would you consider the audio edition of Dread Mountain to be better than the print version?

Ron Haddrick definitely has a great gift for bringing stories to life! (As well as for keeping you on the edge of your seat throughout!) So I would have to say 'yes!'

Who was your favorite character and why?

The Kin were my favourite characters as they reminded me of a certain famous pink luck dragon from my childhood (:

Which character – as performed by Ron Haddrick – was your favourite?

Haddrick does a 'spot-on' Barda throughout the entire series, though his 'Gnome' performance/s in this, book five, were comical indeed!

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

The trio save a friend in need at on point in the book, which goes to show all the great personality traits you want in the characters of a children's/YA story

Any additional comments?

Like quests? Adventure stories? Then this series is the one for you! (I've listened to six out of the eight so far, and five is definitely my favourite (so far!))
