Deltora Quest

Rowan of Rin is a series of fantasy novels written by Emily Rodda set predominately in the village of Rin and centred around Rowan and his adventures. The Rowan of Rin series is set in the same world as in the Deltora Quest, the Three Doors trilogy and the Star of Deltora series.

PlotEdit

SettingEdit

The series is set in the village of Rin. Which is found within a valley on the main continent across the Silver Sea from Deltora, known as Maris. 

The Mountain which Rowan travels to twice. Both in the first book and the last. It is often spoken of as if it were alive and has a core of molten rock that has the appearance of liquid gold. On the peak of the mountain lives the dragon that roars every day at dawn, thus melting the ice that flows down the mountain into the stream. The mountain is covered in what Rowan calls "Devil trees" which are carnivorous trees that sends its victim into a deep sleep so that it doesn't put a fight as it's devoured.

Main article: Rowan of Rin (book)

After the stream in their village runs dry, six brave heroes venture into the Mountain to eliminate the source of the problem, accompanied by young Rowan, the oddity of Rin and the keeper of the bukshah herd, and armed with a strange riddle and a map of the Mountain which only Rowan can hold and read. Although the heroes are all strong and brave warriors, they soon discover that the Mountain tests their endurance and courage in the most unexpected way-- by forcing them to face their most inner fears. Slowly, one by one the warriors confront their fears and are defeated by them, leaving at the last the young Rowan, who is afraid of everything and ridiculed and dismissed by many in Rin, to carry on and face the Dragon of the Mountain and restore the stream.
