If Middle-Earth were a painting, the colors would be muted. If Deltora were a painting, on the other hand, the colors would be bright and gaudy, and I don't just say this because of the shiny cover illustrations! The danger in Middle-Earth is a you-have-disturbed-the-ancient-powers-of-the-world-and-you-shall-die kind of danger; the danger in Deltora is a look-how-beautiful-and-colorful-I-am-well-it's-because-I'm-poisonous-and-so-is-everything-else-around-here-in-some-way kind of danger. I'm not saying the two are equal, or that one atmosphere is necessarily "better" than another, but this is always the comparison that comes to my mind. I thoroughly enjoy Emily Rodda's penchant for creating marvels of nature that equal and exceed marvels of magic, as well as her extremely clever, game-changing plot twists (particularly in this book and two of her other series finales, The Third Door and The Sister of the South), which in some cases I would call worthy of Agatha Christie.
