He and the creatures of his sorcery have been driven back across the mountains.
But thousands of Deltorans are still enslaved in the Shadowlands, the Enemy’s own terrifying and mysterious domain. To rescue them, Lief, Barda and Jasmine, heroes of the quest for the Belt of Deltora, must find a weapon powerful enough to combat the Shadow Lord’s magic on his own ground.
According to legend, the only thing the Shadow Lord fears is the fabled Pirran Pipe. But does the mysterious Pipe still exist? And if it does, what dangers will the companions have to face to find it?
In secret, Josef writes about the state of Deltora after the defeat of the Shadow Lord. He mentions that although Deltorans are now free, many others are still trapped in the Shadowlandssuffering, but Lief refuses to take action against the Shadow Lord. Josef longs to return to the palace so he can tell the king about The Deltora Annals and the story of the Pirran Pipethe one thing that may help him free the slaves. In his chamber in the palaceLief retires near dawn after a long night of doing unknown business.
Because the Ruby and the Emerald are pale and dull, Lief realises danger is present. He hears a small sound coming from near his pillow, and slits open the pillow to find a Plains scorpion. Alarmed, Lief cries out and smashes the scorpion.
His shouts bring Doom and Jasmine to his door. Lief assures them that he is all right and tells them of his near encounter.
Although his friends are still worried about him, Lief convinces them to leave and let him sleep, as the danger has passed.
Doom leaves, but Jasmine demands to know where Lief has been all night. Lief refuses to tell her, and Jasmine leaves in a huff.
Cavern of the Fear
Fuming at Lief’s secrecy, Jasmine goes outside, and finds Barda has returned from Noradzwhere he had gone to free the people from the tyrannical rule of the Ra-Kacharz. During the following meeting Jasmine insists that Lief march to the Shadowlands to free the slaves. She is only further enraged when Lief refuses, claiming that they cannot do so until they have a magic that can combat the Shadow Lord in his own domain.
Lief then announces his intention to leave for Tora with Doom the following morning. Jasmine is appalled, and does not understand why Lief should go when the people need him in Del. She accuses Lief of running away, before storming off. Dejected, Lief realises that Jasmine does not understand why he must go to Tora, and longs to tell her the truth.
Doom stops him, telling the young king that the unknown task they are undertaking must remain a secret. Jasmine runs to the great hall for solitude, only to find it occupied by Jinks and Glock gambling over their fighting spidersFlash and Fury.
In the following conversation, Glock complains of Lief’s decision to flee to Tora rather than invade the Shadowlands and free his people.
He boasts that he could lead an army into the Feat if Lief would let him, for he is protected by his family’s talisman—a bag containing an old piece of wood, a Gripper flower, and a stone from a Diamond Python ‘s stomach, among other things.
Jinks claims, to Jasmine’s surprise, that Lief is going to Tora to find a bride. At first she refuses to believe it, for Lief is too young to be married, but Jinks’ proof is convincing.
Jinks says he discovered from ‘a secret source’ cavfrn Lief has been reading the family trees of the noble houses of Tora in secret, and that Jasmine’s own father has been helping Lief procure palace gems for the Toran bride. Feeling shocked and betrayed, Jasmine leaves. In a foul mood, she plans to abandon the palace and Del entirely — to go back to the Forests of Silencethe only place she believes she belongs. On a defiant impulse, she steals past the rope barrier blocking entry to the third floor of the palace, where the library is located.
She makes a hole in the bricks and crawls through, into an eerie white room containing a small glass tablethe source of the thrumming sound. Not knowing what it truly is, Jasmine looks into the crystal, and speaks with a girl named Faith. She beseeches Jasmine to come rescue her, before she and all the slaves are put to death.
Faith says she spoke to Lief but deltoda would not heed her, and he refused to mention her to Dltora. This further incenses Jasmine, and she swears to find Faith and free her. Deeply shaken by the encounter, Jasmine flees from the palace to the forgea place she knows will be safe and unoccupied. Marilen prepares to journey back to Del with Lief and Doom. She informs him that it is not, but there may be one thing powerful enough — the Pirran Pipe.
Full of ancient magic, the Pipe existed before the time of the Shadow Lord. Zeean cautions that the Pirran Pipe is merely a Jalis folk tale, and pursuing it is folly. Cear Zeean’s view of the matter, Lief and Doom plan to find as much information as they can about the Pipe.
They intend to seek out Glock, the last of the Jalis, as soon as they return to Del, in order to hear the tale from the only person who may know it well.
Back in Del, Jasmine reaches the forge and finds that it shows signs of recent use. The iron is slightly warm, and the layer of dust on a chair appears to have been disturbed by a cloak or jacket.
Frustrated, she tosses the note to the ground, and is startled to hear an amused remark from someone behind her. In her fraught state of mind, Jasmine has failed to notice the dark-skinned man who had followed her from the palace to the forge. The man introduces himself as Raneshand claims he was bidden to show her qeust great treasure that his friend has been keeping safe for the king. Though wary and suspicious of him and his claim, Jasmine agrees to see this treasure.
Ranesh leads Jasmine to the pottery, where an old man is waiting with a trunk full of blue books labeled The Deltora Annals.

The excited old man, Josef, shows Jasmine the books but does not see her confusion about the matter. Jasmine does not believe books are fead great a treasure, and she is certain Lief would not find them valuable either. Not wanting to disappoint Josef, Jasmine agrees to accompany him, Ranesh, and the Annals to the palace. Jasmine is very surprised at the excitement caused in the palace by the return of Josef and the Annals. When Ranesh mentions that many of Doran the Dragonlover ‘s maps are contained within the AnnalsJasmine purposes to find them and far for the fastest, most secret way to the Shadowlands.
SharnRanesh, and Josef go down to the kitchens, leaving Jasmine alone in the library with deltroa books. She spends hours researching Doran’s works and reading the Tenna Birdsong Tales.
With all the information she needs written on a paper in her pocket, she gathers her belongings and leaves the palace in secret. As she climbs out her bedroom window, Glock stops her and asks where she is going.
He accompanies Jasmine out of Del, bringing along the fighting spider Flash. Lief, Doom, and Marilen arrive in Del very late that night. Doom heads off to find Glock, while Sharn welcomes Marilen before telling Lief that someone broke into the sealed room on the third floor. He is dismayed to hear it, but when she tells him the Annals were rediscovered, safe and intact, he is overjoyed.
Doom returns to announce Glock is nowhere to be found, to which Lief cheerfully replies they do not need him any longer, for a much more reliable source has been found. They hurry to the library, Lief is shocked to hear from Josef that Jasmine was reading the Annals earlier, which is confirmed by Ranesh who had noticed before she had closed the book. Josef intends to show Lief the Tale of the Pirran Pipehowever before he caverrn tell the king of it, Lief asks cafern to leave him and Doom alone, taking Ranesh with him, promising to read what Josef had for him in quiet.
Alone, Lief and Doom look down, and are shocked to see the Annals volume in front of them open on the pages containing the Tale of the Pirran Pipe.

The story, The Girl with the Golden Hairtells of a dragon and a girl with cacern hair, who fled deep into underground caverns where goblins dwelled.
Doom returns with Barda, angry that Jasmine is nowhere to be found. Lief deduces from his reading that she has left for the Os-Mine Hills to find a secret way to the Shadowlands, accompanied by Glock.
In a hurry to be gone, Lief instructs Marilen to keep her presence in Del and her identity secret. He assures her that he will return soon, but he must find and retrieve Jasmine, for he believes she ran off because he offended her. Barda finds Jinks sneaking jam from the pantry, and roughly questions him. This gives Barda an idea. Fury, Jinks’ spider, lost the last match against Flash, and would rage until she could fight a rematch.
Fury could track down Flash and lead them to Jasmine and Glock much faster than they could on their own. No sooner do they reach qeust hills than they are attacked by Granous.
