Where Waters Meet

Where Waters Meet is a small village in Amethyst territory which lies near the River Tor and north of Tora. The town was deserted for some time during the reign of the Shadow Lord in Deltora, but at the time of the quest to destroy the Four Sisters, it was being rebuilt.[1][2]


Secrets of Deltora[]

Doran stopped at Where Water's Meet on his journey writing Secrets of Deltora.[1]

Deltora Book of Monsters[]

Ranesh told Josef that he grew up in Where Waters Meet, but was captured by a band of pirates and taken to the Maze of the Beast until he eventually escaped.[3]

The Maze of the Beast[]

A band of pirates came to Where Waters Meet and demanded the people pay them tribute. When they refused, the pirates attacked the town. Some of them carved their names into the ruined buildings.

Lief, Barda, Jasmine, and Dain all came to the ruins after they had split up. Jasmine came first and left a coded message for the others to tell them how far ahead she was.[2]

Isle of the Dead[]

After the Shadow Lord's defeat and the rescue of the slaves from the Shadowlands, the people of Where Waters Meet had begun to rebuild their town, with Ranesh's help. By the time the Sister of the East and of the North was destroyed by Lief, Barda and Jasmine with help from Deltora's dragons, the work had been completed. Ranesh mentioned this when he met the king and his companions in the Dreaming Dunes, a good way into their journey towards the Sister of the West.[4]


  • The town is built on the delta where the River Tor joins the Broad River.
