The most wonderful Deltora book of them all. It is beautifully illustrated by Marc McBride and the writing by Emily Rodda is equally stunning as all her writings are. There are two parts to this book. The first part explains the ancient history of the Shadowlands, the Ak-Baba and the Shadowlord. The second is about how Adin, the first king of Deltora and also the maker of the Belt of Deltora, united the seven tribes (Del, Ralad, Plains, Mere, Dread Gnome, Toran and Jalis) and collected each of their gems (the topaz, the ruby, the opal, the lapis lazuli, the emerald, the amethyst and the diamond).

So, happily enough, this stays close to the heart of Deltora. It is a book writtne by Josef the Librarian to give a brief history of Deltora, and is divided into two sections: The Tenna Birdsong tales of Jardis culture (Josef believes these to contain a nugget of truth) that tell of how the world came to be, and the Rise of Adin, which gives a marvelous story of Adin's coming and uniting of the seven tribes that rivals anything else Rodda has written.
This book shows that Rodda's genius of Deltora was not just limited to the series. While this could be enjoyed without reading anything else, it helps flesh out the Deltora magic.
A must-read for any Deltora fan.
