Blood Lily Island

Blood Lily Island, also known as the scarlet island,[1] is a small island in Diamond territory off the coast of Deltora.


Secrets of Deltora[]

Doran travelled to Blood Lily Island for his book Secrets of Deltora. There, he discovered Forta grazing on the lilies. Later, she chose Blood Lily Island as her hiding spot when Doran convinced her to go to into hiding. Sadly, her sleep lasted longer than she anticipated, and she was eaten alive by fleshbanes.[2]

Isle of the Dead[]

Lief, Barda, and Jasmine discovered Forta's bones on the island, as well as the single egg she had laid. They were nearly eaten alive themselves, but were able to clear a path through the blood lilies with Tom's fire beeds.[1]


Blood Lily Island is located off the south-west coast of Deltora. It is surrounded by rapids and is connected to the Isle of the Dead by a natural rock bridge.[2]

Fauna and Flora[]

Blood Lily[]

Main article: Blood Lily

Blood Lily Island is the only place in Deltora where Blood Lilies grow. Blood Lilies are red and have a sweet scent. This attracts birds and other wildlife to them.[2]


Main article: Fleshbane

Hidden among the Blood Lilies are bugs called Fleshbanes. They are red and similar in shape to Blood Lily petals. When Blood Lily pollen touches skin, it has a numbing effect on the victim. Fleshbanes attach themselves to the numbed area and chew through clothing to the flesh using their razor sharp teeth, sometimes without the victim knowing.[2]
