Lake of Tears

Lake of Tears is the second book to the first series of the Deltora Quest series. It is the book where they get the Ruby gem. It is a good book and has many good parts. My favorite parts include the part where they meet Jin and Jod, (Nij and Doj) and must escape. Howeve, Leif, Barda, and Jasmine do not know that they are monsters until Leif accidentally puts his hand to the Topaz and he suddenly sees the whole trick. They escape from Jin and Jod and they meet the Ralad man that they had saved before. The escape into the underground palace of the Ralads.

Also, I liked the part when the golden eyed man asked Barda Leif and Jasmine three questions on one condition, that if the answer wrongly, they must die and only by getting the correct answer can they pass. The first question was how to make 13 sticks into 9. The answer was 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 into NINE. The second question was What is it that a beggar has, a rich man needs, and the dead eat. The answer is Nothing. The last question,

Thaegan gulps her favorite food
In her cave with all her brood:
Hot, Tot, Jin, Jod,
Fie Fly, Zan, Zod,
Pik, Snik, Lun Lod
And the dreaded Ichabod
Each child holds a slimy toad.
On each toad squirm two fat grubs.
On each grub ride two fleas brave
How many living in Thaegan’s cave?

The answer, is 106 for Thaegan had swallowed the raven alive, adding 1 o the answer. The giant gives him the chance to pick how to die. If what one statement Leif said was false, his head would be cut off. If he said something true, the giant would strangle him. Leif says that his head would be cut off. If it is true, he would be strangled, thus making it false and if it was false, his head would be cut off making it true. So the trick answer broke Thaegan’s spell and the giant was free to be a raven again. The raven saves him and repays the debt that Leif had saved him. A great read!
