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.

Here's what

Fans are saying


Will appeal to all ages

There is plenty of soaring action, drama, humour as well as a deeper message behind the thrill-fest about tolerance, understanding and peaceful coexistence.

If you liked the BBC series `Merlin' the film `Dragonheart' and the book and film `Eragon' then this is a must read. `Redheart' will appeal to all ages and is a great read right up to its final unexpected twist ending.


A Book and a Dragon...
Seriously What More Do You Need?

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.
