Review: Sela by Jackie Gamber

Review: Sela by Jackie Gamber

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?


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!
