  • What do you guys think is the scariest Deltora book? It can be from any of the three series.

    Shifting Sands was really freaky for me. Even before they got to the desert...

    Feel free to express what you think. :D

      The Sister of the South was probably the creepiest. The ending was just so tense!

      Yeah I agree with that.

    • For the first series, I was really creeped out by The Maze of the Beast and Valley of the Lost, because of the guardians.

      For the second series I think the creepiest book was the Isle of Illusion, because of the giant spiders in the dome.

      For the third series it was Shadowgate, because of the snakes in the pit in the village Shadowgate and the Masked Ones. The scene where Jasmine rips the mask of Lief gave me the chills.

    • The Masked Ones were just plain freaky.

    • For the third series I would say it's a tie between Shadowgate and Isle of the Dead. The Masked Ones were so macabre. Like a unexplainable nightmare you have as a kid. The adult masks that fuse onto your face, and the thing with Kirsten and that emerald castle. Gives me the shivers! I said Isle of the Dead, because the idea of the people rowing the ship being forced to work is seriously creepy. And it was extra spooky when they started to break free and try to get into the gambling room of the ship. The description of their torn fingers and stuff was creepy in the most awesome way. And then there's the visions of the past. Those were cool. I wish Rodda would write more books in the universe with more creepy, horror-esque themes. That'd be awesome.

    • i have to say that the whole third series had me on the edge of my seat. the masked one plus copie dragons plus beautiful freaks and oozing grey slime was all adding up on the creepy/scary meter. i also have to say that the creepiest part of isle of the dead was on the abandond ship the idea of what seemed minutes to barda and leif was actually days.

      im getting goosebumps just memorising them

    • It's been a long time since I've read the books myself (currenlty taking steps to try and reobtain them!)

      But one of the things that I remember most from when I was a kid, that kinda freaked me out, were the Blood Lilies/Fleshbanes.

      I remember their encounter with those being extremely intense and it freaked me out.

      I think I was scared of flowers for a while.

      I happen to have all of the books from series 1, still sealed in plastic if you're interested in them. I already had them, so I'd like to get rid of them. It's the new publication though, not the original one. Text's the same, just the cover artwork (not the pictures of the monsters themselves, but the circular patterns and such) are different. Would you like to buy them from me? I can show you some pictures. They're good as new :) I hope me trying to sell these books here doesn't make the rest of the staff look down on me lol.

      Are you serious?

      I just ordered Series 1 from Amazon like ten minutes ago.

      It's probably not too late to cancel the order but... I did get them for under $10, incuding shipping.

      I don't want to force that kind of deal on you XD


      By the time you read this, it'll probably be too late to cancel. But... (hmmm...) the ones I bought are used. I certainly would enjoy having a sealed copy to keep safe too. So... name your price, and I'll see if I can afford it.

      My roommate just lost his job this week though, so we don't exactly have a lot of money right now.

      I won't want to take money from you that you might need to support yourselves. So just buy the used ones. Though, what is the seller's price?

      DQ 1- The Valley of the Lost Evil Fardeep was so scary especially with his creepy monsters that were tied to his flesh! DQ 2- The Isle of Illusion The Arachs scared the heck out of me! DQ 3- also a tie between Shadowgate and The Isle of the Dead The way Emily Rodda depicted Verity, her defiance and bravery was amazing! Laughing Jack and his crew chilled me to the bone. When Jasmine, sobbing ripped the mask of Liefs head and he was screaming abuse at her. His face was bloody, torn and scarred. That scared me and I stayed away from masks for about a year!

      Yes, that scene in Shadowgate was incredibly painful and difficult and scary to read. Especially seeing Lief so changed by the mask. Any sort of mental brainwashing-type stuff creeps me out, so that scene really affected me. But I think that the scariest part of the novel was the climax, with the snakes attacking Kirsten of Shadowgate. In fact, the whole book was a load of nightmare fuel, and I will always consider it the creepiest book in DQ3.
