Description

Weredragons, men call them. Monsters. Cursed ones. People who can turn into beastly reptiles.

In an ancient world just rising from darkness, they are everywhere. Some wander the plains with clans of mammoth hunters. Others are born in riverside huts. Some live across the ocean where seafaring tribes are discovering the secrets of bronze and writing in clay. Everywhere their curse is the same--people who can grow wings, breathe fire, and take flight as dragons.

And everywhere, they are hunted. They hide in forests and caves, dispersed. Many are alone, unaware that others exist. They are shunned, afraid, dying . . . until a group of these lost souls binds together and stands tall.

A blacksmith in a world of stone tools. A mammoth hunter exiled from her tribe. A traveling juggler and a wandering warrior. An elderly druid and an outcast prince. They are weredragons. They are cursed and hunted. Together they will forge a new tribe, a home for their kind. A dawn of dragon rises. The nation of Requiem is born.

In 2011, Blood of Requiem introduced readers to mythical Requiem, a land where people can become dragons. The book and its sequels went on to sell over 350,000 copies, captivating readers around the world. Requiem's Song returns to Requiem with a new tale--for both new readers and old fans--of wings, claws, and dragonfire.

    Exquisite details surround the magic of each dragon portrayed in the first book of this series. I'm eagerly awaiting to download the next book to continue the war against the daemons and dragons. It's going to be a thrilling adventure with my hot popcorn and ebook beside me. KSW

  • Fantasy. Battles. Degradation.

    Searching for family or for enemies. Resolve to build. Intention to destroy. Hate. Yearning to belong. It keeps on ticking. The story needs cutting and tightening. I didn't find it either satisfying or enjoyable. Others might.

    So far, making this short and sweet, this book here is about how it all began with Requiem. And so far, it's been the same old, run-fight-then hide kind of stories, also there are quite a bit of scenes in the book that are a bit too gross. Sentences are somewhat a bit better, but still too short, not to mention that he uses the same few words now and again, and that I noticed he uses -way- too many commas. Character descriptions are coming along well too, where I can actually picture what they exactly look like. Though with the villain in this book here is kind of like the same old psychopath like in the "Song of Dragons" books, which don't get me wrong, I am one of the few people that like a good dark story, but this here is becoming a phase to me. It's just the same old thing like in all of the books that I've read. Run, fight, hide, then find more survivors which will probably die pretty quick in the books as well. Overall I do like the story idea, but this is really becoming repetitive, and I do hope Daniel Arenson will step up his game if he's willing to make this another short trilogy. I know he can do it, if he's trying to be like George R.R. Martin.
