I’m really pleased to be taking part in this book tour for trilogies by authors Jackie Gamber and H. David Blalock. The Angelkiller Triad and Leland Dragon Series are from publisher Seventh Star Press and available now. I’ve got a review to share for my stop on the tour of Reclamation the final book in the Leland Dragon Series. Thanks to Jackie, David and Seventh Star Press. My reviews of books one and two can be read as well. Redheart and Sela are great reads and is a series I enjoyed.

The final book in the Leland Dragon series was a great ending to the series. A series that can be enjoyed by all ages. The beginning had me confused as I hadn’t read book two in about a year so some moments had me wondering who was who and what was what, reading the series in order is recommended. That being said once I got beyond a certain point the familiar entertaining storyline that I had come to enjoy sucked me in and away it took me. I enjoyed Sela and her families story, her growth and discovery that she was more than dragon or human and spreading her wings actual and otherwise was such a pleasure to read, Jackie really makes you get behind the characters and you support them and cheer them on wishing them the right path to safety for themselves, for dragons and for Leland province. I enjoyed this book in the series as well as the previous two, I highly recommend this series to those who enjoy fantasy and coming of age stories.
Another trilogy from Seventh Star Press is written by H. David Blalock, I’ve read book one in the series and loved it. You can find out more about him and his work online

H. David Blalock’s Angelkiller Book Synopsis: Why do bad things happen to good people? Simple. In the ancient war between the Angels of Light and Darkness, the Dark won. Now it is the job of an undercover force simply known as The Army to rectify that.
Using every tool available, The Army has worked to liberate our world from The Enemy for thousands of years, slowly and painfully lifting Mankind out of the dark. On the front of the great Conflict are the Angelkillers, veterans of the fight with centuries of experience.
Jonah Mason is an Angelkiller, and his cell is targeted as part of plot to unseat a very powerful Minion of The Enemy. Mason and his troop are drawn into a battle that stretches from real-time to virtual reality and back. The Conflict is about to expand into cyberspace, and if Mason is unable to stop it, The Enemy will have gained dominion over yet another realm
