The sinister Fordon Blackclaw has returned from the shadows to strike at the heart of neighboring Esra, killing its Venur and making clear his intentions to retake what was once his: Mount Gore, seat of the Leland Dragon Council. All around, the land grows weaker and weaker. Leland, once thought saved by Kallon Redheart, is without purpose, and within its borders, Murk Forest, a place of mystery and danger, has driven its inhabitants to seek aid. Esra is in flames, and the Rage Desert grows. Dragon and human alike struggle to find their way, and the wizard Orman can sense that there may be more at stake than the affairs of dragons. Hope remains, yet it is not without obstacles. In Esra, Sela, the daughter of Kallon and Riza, found the well, a source of life, and made herself whole again. But her homecoming is not what she had imagined. Old wounds buried deep must reopen if life is to continue. Dragons, humans, wizards, and shape shifters are all at risk as the peace between dragon and human has finally been broken. War is here. The stakes? Perhaps the whole world.

My Thoughts:
From the minute I picked up Redheart, Jackie Gamber has topped my list of favorite authors. I fell in love with Redheart and read the whole thing in a weekend. Sela was next up and it was amazing. I read that one in about a day. I could not wait for book three. I didn't think I could love Ms. Gamber anymore then I did already but she has done it again, this book was stellar.  Book Three jumps in right where two leaves off and the action does not stop. Ms. Gamber does is amazing at developing and creating truly complex and beautiful characters. Ms. Gamber is by far one of the best character creators I have ever read.  The beauty of this series is it is a message of hope, tolerance, love, strength and family. I think this trilogy contains a wonderful message. I highly recommend this book to all ages and all genre lovers. This rich, complex book will grab on to the reader and hang on tight until the end. It was a brilliant ending to the trilogy. Though I am sad to see it end. Fantastic Job Jackie Gamber.
