City of the Rats

City of the Rats is the third book of the first series of the Deltora Quest series and the book where Leif Barda and Jasmine find the third gem, the Opal. I liked the part when Leif had to pick a card from the Cup to determine the fate of Jasmine. He knows both of them say death, so he picks one card, than pretends to stumble and tosses the car into the fire. Then, he tells them that by looking at the card inside the cup, they can figure out which one he got, so they think that he got LIFE, but Reece tells them to go the dungeons.

They escape the dungeons and Tira the servant girl shows them the way out, and trying to kill them, Reece is knocked out in Leif’s escape. Jasmine removes Reece’s gloves, and then he dies from the poison in their escapes path. finally I liked it when Leif, Barda, and Jasmine had to fight Reeah the giant snake and then Jasmine kills the snake with Leif’s sword and they get the opal from Reeah’s crown. A good book!
