In times long past, the Shadow Lord was defeated by the Belt of Deltora, and its creator Adeen united the seven tribes into one kingdom called Deltora. The Shadow Lord bid his time, striking again generations later; he destroyed the belt and scattered the gems, thus leaving the land open to be easily subjugated. Now, in the present day, a young man named Lief does what he can to fight the forces of the Shadow Lord. On his 16th birthday, Lief's father confesses to being the last king of Deltora’s friend, and has reforged the sacred belt. With new hope, Lief takes it upon himself to find the gems, restore the belt, and to bring hope to the people of Deltora once more! Together with Barda, an ex-palace guard, Lief sets out on an adventure of a lifetime!
Fifty years ago, the Demon Stone and RAVE (two powerful artifacts) are broken and scattered throughout the world.

Deltora Quest and Groove Adventure Rave are both adventure series revolving around a young group of adventurers trying to regather the bits of a mystical item in order to defeat a great evil. They both have a similar tone and degree of action, so if you enjoyed one, you will more than likely enjoy the other.
In a world where humans are enslaved by beast men, there is one person who wishes to destroy it all: Morute, the leader of the World Destruction Committee. She sets out on a journey with an ancient artifact known as the "Destruct Code," a device rumored to have the power to destroy the world and turn everything back into sand. Along the way she finds two companions: the kind-hearted human Kyrie, and aspiring hero and beast man Toppi. Together the trio travels the world, always staying out of reach of the World Salvation Committee. Will they discover the secrets of the Destruct Code, and more importantly, succeed at destroying the world?
Deltora Quest and Sands of Destruction remind me of each other. At their heart, they are obviously both fantasy tales of a group on a quest to obtain a certain item. However, these series have oposite goals. In Deltora Quest, the Belt of Deltora is supposed to result in the saving of the world, while in Sands of Destruction the Destruct Code is supposed to end it. Story wise, the main characters in each series have a number of similar adventures while on the path of their respective goals. I am sure that if you enjoyed one of them, you will enjoy the other.
