Book Description

Peace was fleeting. Vorham Riddess, Venur of Esra Province, covets the crystal ore buried deep in Leland's mountains. His latest device to obtain it: land by marriage to a Leland maiden. But that's not all.

Among Dragonkind, old threats haunt Mount Gore, and shadows loom in the thoughts of the Red who restored life to land and love. A dragon hunter, scarred from countless battles, discovers he can yet suffer more wounds.

In the midst of it all, Sela Redheart is lost, driven from her home with only her old uncle to watch over her. As the dragon-born child of Kallon, the leader of Leland's Dragon Council, she is trapped in human form with no understanding of how she transformed, or how to turn back.

Wanderers seek a home, schemes begin to unfurl, and all is at risk as magic and murder, marriage and mystery strangle the heart of Esra. A struggle for power far older and deeper than anyone realizes will leave no human or dragon unaffected.

In a world where magic is born of feeling, where the love between a girl and a dragon was once transformative, what power dwells in the heart of young Sela?

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful and thought-provoking! April 25, 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
When asked by Seventh Star Press to participate in the blog tour for the second book in Jackie Gamber's Leland Dragon Series, Sela, I didn't think twice before immediately jumping on board with it. I have read and absolutely loved the first novel in the series, Redheart, and knew that I simply couldn't afford to miss the sequel. Having devoured and been totally blown-away by Redheart, I expected a lot from this book. I couldn't wait to be taken back to Leland, revisit the treacherous mountains, vast fields of green, and familiar villages. Most of all, I was anxious to be reunited with all my favourite characters, fly high in the sky with all the majestic, colorful dragons, and soak up the beauty and freshness of Gamber's world. I can't even begin to describe how happy this book made me - it's a breathtaking, magnificent fantasy book, so rich in atmosphere, so vibrant and emotionally engaging, so full of character, passion and magic - it's virtually impossible not to fell in love with it. Once again Jackie Gamber delivers, and she does it with style, power and irresistible charm.

I won't lie, I was a bit surprised when I first learned about Redheart not being a stand alone novel, but rather a first in a planned trilogy. Why? Because it ended so perfectly! I didn't see what could possibly be added to the story without making it seem forced and overdone. Jackie ended her first book in a way that was perfectly satisfying, sensible and seemingly final. The main story - Kallon and Riza's story - was concluded.

Sela takes the Leland Dragon Series to a whole new level. If you loved Redheart, you will not be able to put this book down. Jackie Gamber is a master story teller who draws you in and keeps you going with twists and plots that surprise and delight with every turn of the page.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sela (LeLand Dragons, 2) May 4, 2012
Format:Paperback
First Sentence:
"Sela's art was dead inside, just like her hope."

The first page of the book can make or break a story for me. So, I was quite excited when I sampled the first three pages of Sela and found myself not wanting to put it down (definitely a sign that the book is going to be good).
While Sela is not about Riza and Kallon, her parents, I still found myself enjoying this read because there was more intrigue than there was in Redheart.
I liked the parallel between the Riza and Sela's stories and how they were both strong characters, even if at times they both seemed a little lost when it came to what they wanted and where they belonged. I thought it was interesting to see how they were both running away from their troubles, while still trying to find their...destiny.

I think have liked Sela more than Riza. Why, because I found her to be a fascinating character and was intrigued by the mystyer of how she transformed into a human, and why she couldn't change back into her natural form. I also liked her because she was plucky and was willing she felt was the right thing (even if she may have been wrong about what).
Out of all the new characters introduced in Sela, I think my favorite would have to be Drell. His story was one of the most interesting because of his heritage and why he was living with the dragons of the desert. I also found him interesting because of how he acted when presented with the option of killing a certain character that the Venur wanted dead.
The one character that surprised me the most in this book would have to be Jastin Armitage. I thought it was quite interesting to see the full story behind why he despised dragons so much.

4.0 out of 5 stars Praise for Sela by Jackie Gamber April 19, 2012
By alicia
Format:Paperback
*I give this book a 4 1/2 for AMAZING!!!
Jackie Gamber does it again, with the second book in the Leland Dragon Series. I was so excited to get my hands on this book and as soon as I opened up the first page I was hooked. I couldn't put this one down just like the first book.

I loved all the little details of this story and enjoyed reading about each and everyone of the characters that fill the pages of Sela. I have no idea how Jackie Gamber keeps track of all of them when she is writing, but that's what makes her so amazing and talented.

I loved the mixture of the old characters and the new characters as well. Plus, Jastin is back in this story and if you've read my review for Redheart, you know I love to hate him. He is just one of those characters that you feel for, but at the same time hate what he does sometimes. I really liked how Jackie Gamber, once again, filled each character with real feelings. Something that makes a book so believable and fantastic!

The mixture of magic, creatures, and secrets makes this a must read for me. My favorite part of this book is flying. It's something that Sela wants so badly. When you are reading the story you can feel it right along with her! I also of course, love dragons and this book doesn't let you down as a reader on that part. There are all kinds of dragons!!!

I need more of this series and I can't wait to read more from Jackie Gamber. I love the world she has created in this series and I can't get enough of it!
