Follow the journeys of Lief, the son of a humble blacksmith, who, on his sixteenth birthday, sets out to fulfill his father's quest to restore the Belt of Deltora. Joining Lief is an ex-palace guard named Barda. Along the way they meet with Jasmine: a wild child of the Forests of Silence, who has long, black hair and emerald eyes. She can speak to trees and has two pets: a raven named Kree and a small, gray, furry creature called Filli. Their quest is to find the seven gems of the fabled Belt of Deltora: Diamond, Emerald, Lapis lazuli, Topaz, Opal, Ruby, and Amethyst.
