Kallon Redheart lives with his back turned on his fellow dragons, on humans, and on everything he once understood. Riza Diantus is a young woman with dreams too wide to fit inside her village fence. Their unexpected friendship is risky in Leland Province, where drought has stripped the land and superstition has cowed its people. And the danger only grows. Fordon Blackclaw, Dragon Council Leader, resents Leland's time-worn venur system. He has inflamed tensions between dragons and humans to the brink of war. He wants to trample humans into utter submission, or wipe them off the face of the land. Anger erupts, scorching innocent lives in its path. When Riza is threatened, Kallon is the only one with the power to save her. But first, he must confront his past and the future he stopped believing in. He must claim his destiny.

My Thoughts

Okay so first off I must say how much I love dragons, so must dragon books I like, this one captured me insides it's grasp and didn't let me go.  I'm still stuck inside it. I was supposed to post this review on Friday last week, but I was at a lost for words and wasn't sure what I was going to say about this fantastic book.  But I knew I had to tell people about it.

Redheart by Jackie Gamber is a power house of a book and there is several reason's why.  One of those reasons is the characters, sometimes in fantasy books it's hard to connect with dragons and this one I connected with Kallon.  He's a loner, one that isn't connected with his own kind or humans either and he likes it that way.  

Of course a great book isn't any good with out a little conflict and a bad guy right? The bad one in this book is like most bad guys, Jastin, who of course hates dragons and thinks he has a right to hate them.  But to my surprise this character isn't all bad, he does love and show kindness sometimes, just don't tell him I said that. (Yes I know the character is just a character, insert evil laugh here!)

Another reason I loved this book is the descriptions author Jackie Gamber has in Redheart.  Descriptions that had me daydreaming I was in the world she had created and I stood there watching everything take place.  

All in all Redheart is one fantastic book and if you haven't read it, you should pick up your copy today and jump into the world Jackie Gamber has created feet first. But don't say I didn't worn you, this book is addicting. 

My Rating: 

I give Redheart by Jackie Gamber a Page Bites....
