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.

Gamber has written another wonderful novel in that of Sela, the sequel of Redheart, which picks up many years after Redheart's conclusion and focuses on the second generation of dragons in Leland province. Though there is a generational gap between the novels, I found it extremely refreshing as new characters permeate the novel, and yet our beloved older characters still pepper the story enough to have a healthy presence. Gamber's choice to continue her story through this generation gap allows her characters years of peace and quiet in between, which is perfect as Redheart had a complete ending, with no cliffhangers. There are no dire circumstances the reader is dying to know about and so, when Sela picks up years later, the reader is given a brand new cast of characters with just enough information about the beloved previous ones to make a wonderful sequel.

Mirroring the writing style of the first novel, Gamber presents her story using different perspectives, focusing mainly on Sela, but also jumping to different characters and giving the reader an in-depth glimpse into their minds as the events surrounding them become perilous. I really enjoyed this writing style, and the use of third person was ideal as it gives the reader access to all the characters' thoughts and feelings.

Sela, trapped in her human form and desperate to become a dragon again, sets the events of the novel in motion through her rash decisions, taking the reader on an exciting ride through the Leland and Esra Provinces as the story unfolds. I really enjoyed her character; her headstrong personality made her lovable, though it gets her into trouble on more than one occasion.

Sela was a very fast moving and enjoyable fantasy. It is the second book in the Leland Dragon series that began with Redheart. I think that it has moved to one of my top ten favorite books of all time. I love fantasy and I love engaging, intelligent, strong women in fantasy and just like in Redheart, Sela did not disappoint.

Something that struck me in Jackie Gamber's first book and holds true in the second her writing style makes the fantasy fun and engaging. Many times fantasy is all about the set up with her it is the pay off. She makes characters that are easy to see, feel and like. Jackie Gamber has the uncanny ability to make twists and turns in a story that keeps you turning page after page. She is a true storyteller. Some people just write books and some tell tales and she is the latter. I really believe she loves her characters and feels excited to be the one telling their stories.

Another element I love was that never in a book has a first kiss moved me so much. Sweet moving romantic. Perfection. Sela a sweet young girl so confused and lost but able to find hope and love.

This book had action, adventure, dragon hunts, love and real relationships. The interaction between Sela and her parents was so true of a rebellious teenager and parents that are just trying to figure it all out.

I enjoyed seeing many of the Characters introduced in Redheart continue in this book and the new characters just added to the story. Bannon and Leesa are amongst a couple of my new favorites and I love how she continued Jastin's story. Jastin may be a dragon slayer but he is one I feel such sympathy for.

Be sure to read Redheart the first in the Leland dragons series. While Sela is truly it's own story Redheart is the story of where Sela comes from.
