Britta is on the Star of Deltora with with her rivals, ready to compete for the Trader Rosalyn Apprenticeship. Britta is desperate to win the contest but so are Jewel, Sky and Vashti. Britta needs to keep her wits about her because one of her fellow competitors will stop at nothing to succeed.
Britta is ready for trouble but when their voyage fails to go as planned and rumours of an evil presence on the ship start to spread among the crew, Britta starts to wonder if she has more to worry about than just her competitors. But nothing can prepare her for what she finds in the forbidden swaplands of Two Moons.
I received a copy of Two Moons from Scholastic New Zealand to review. I’ve already read and reviewed the first book, Shadows of the Master on my blog. You can read that here.
I’ve enjoyed both book in the Star of Deltora series so far. They’re both under 200 pages but even for such short books a lot happens in them.
Two Moons picks up where Shadows of the Master left off. Britta is on her way to her first location to make her first trade in the competition. But soon things start to go wrong again and Britta suspects one of the other competitors of trying to sabotage her, to knock her out of the running to becoming the next Apprentice.
While in Two Moons Britta discovers a link to her father that may be her undoing. She doesn’t want anyone to link her with him in any way.
Just like Shadows of the Master, I couldn’t put this down. I was desperate to see what happened to Britta and how she’d talk her way out of trouble this time. I can’t believe how addictive these books are. They’re full of mystery and magic.
I hope to read the other books in the series when they come out. The third book, The Towers of Illica, sounds just as good as the first two.
