GOODREADS SYNOPSIS: Enter the lands of Leland Province, where dragon and human societies have long dwelled side by side. Superstitions rise sharply, as a severe drought strips the land of its bounty, providing fertile ground for the darker ambitions of Fordon Blackclaw, Dragon Council Leader, who seeks to subdue humans or wipe them off the face of the land. As the shadow of danger creeps across Leland Province, a young dragon named Kallon Redheart, who has turned his back on dragons and humans alike, comes into an unexpected friendship. Riza Diantus is a young woman whose dreams can no longer be contained by the narrow confines of her village, and when she finds herself in peril, Kallon is the only one with the power to save her. Yet to do so means he must confront his past, and embrace a future he stopped believing in. A tale of friendship, courage, and ultimate destiny, Redheart invites readers to a wondrous journey through the Leland Dragon Series.
Redheart is a story about two characters you wouldn't think could build a releationship together, but they end up doing just that.
Jackie Gamber is a brilliant author, she doesn't just tell this story about a dragon , no she paints the picture through her words, a picture you can step right through. Every detail of the world she created in Redheart I felt as if I could reach out and touch it.
This story isn't only about a dragon and its tragic tale, no its about way much more than that; Love...Sacrifice... Bad guys...Adventure... and lets face it so much more.
Redheart was one story I couldn't get enough of. I fell in love with the well thought out characters as they faced all their demons. I cheered for the relationship of Kallon and Riza to develope.
When Riza is accused of being a spy, Kallon must step up and figure out how to be the dragon he was meant to be.
Redheart is definatly going on my loved bookshelf. Its a book any young adult reader will enjoy. I have always loved dragons! Redheart and Kallon are now my new favorites. Plus, there is Jastin to love in this book as well. I loved his character. I loved how unpredictable he is! Sometimes he made me want to punch him and others I just wanted to hug him.
Jackie has built a terrific world and I for one can't wait to read more from her and her brilliant characters.
Even though this book is meant for Young Adults, I think adults would love it. So I'm going to say 12 and up.
Alright its time for my rating of Redheart... So lets see...I give Redheart a:
Lets break down what that means shall we...
89 out of 100 = 4 puppies!
Redheart is definitely a book to remember and fall in love with! What are you waiting for it's your turn to step into Jackie's world and Leland province!
