What?

Tales of Deltora

by Emily Rodda

Pub. date: October 06
"Where did the mysterious Shadow Lord come from? How did his seven ferocious Ak-Baba come to be? The secrets are revealed at last! 
Return to Deltora — land of magic and monsters — in a new special edition that finally reveals the truth about the battles and the bloodlines that forged a universe full of adventure.
As an added bonus, this collection offers twenty stunningly lavish new color illustrations by Marc McBride."

Why?

I was a big fan of the Deltora series when I was younger. Like, huge fan! It was my absolute favorte series. I owned all the books... or so I thought. While browsing Rodda's books on Shelfari a while ago, I stumbled across this little gem. You would not believe my shock at learning there was more to the series I love so much! I immediately put it on my wish list, then went in search of other Deltora titles I was missing. I'll tell you the results of my search next week.
I will definitely have to get this to complete my collection, as well as learn more about the history of my favorite made-up land.

I know what you mean about needing to own all the books in a series. I'm still trying to finish off getting books in series that I love. :)
