5.0 out of 5 stars"Requiem's Hope, Dawn of Dragons 2"
Reviewed in the United States on July 20, 2014
"Requiem's Hope" is the 2nd book in the prequel to Daniel Arenson's Requiem novels. Even though this is a prequel, I highly suggest starting with "Blood of Requiem, Song of Dragons" book 1. There is a lot explained in this prequel that would not be understood or properly appreciated without starting with "Blood of Requiem". These novels center around the Vir Requis, a species that has the gift to shift from human form to beautiful dragons. They didn't always have this ability. Certain families were gifted this by the Draco Constellation though at this point in the novels we are still not sure why these specific families were chosen. The Vir Requis are an extremely honorable and strong race. It amazes me time and time again how they are able to persevere. This series is one of my favorites and Daniel is one of my favorite Authors. I have yet to be disappointed or bored with anything he writes. One thing that I love about his writing is nothing is ever easy for his characters. They literally go thru hell and back. Also, Daniel has this ability to continuously create new and unique antagonists. This is true in all of his other books too. If you enjoy this series as much as I do I suggest reading Daniels " Moth" series.
Interesting stories in this series but it quickly gets to be a pain in the butt when you realize that this author is writing books in this series, and naming them in such a fashion that confuses the reader, and it is super difficult to understand what books should be read next. Nothing like a series of books that you need to spend hours researching online just so you know which book to read next. Terrible story follow up and history.
I have always enjoyed Daniel Arensons writing and this book is no different. King Raem (The Demon King) is flying with his hoard to exterminate the fledgling Kingdom of Requiem while Angel the demon queen sits on his throne awaiting his return. This book picks up where the last book left off and new alliances will be made and new enemies will be born. This book has a lot of action and adventure all told in Daniels unique writing style. If you are a fan of Daniel Arenson and Dragons then check this book out. Enjoy.
Enjoyed this author's writings very much! Keeps you in awe of what happens next. Hopefully his next book is such a good read also. I find myself jumping over that which just fills pages (LOL) and getting on to the next battle. Pleading for the next book to be forthcoming in the near future.
I truly love these books, all of them. The story of Requiem is unique and engaging. I have read many fantasy novels where, dragons have taken on the human form. But this is the first where humans could take the form of dragons. Simply an excellent story please keep writing about Requiem, it is simply magical to delve into this world. Thank you for creating such a fantastic world to enjoy.
2.0 out of 5 starsI read the Dragon War series first and enjoyed all three of the books
Reviewed in the United States on May 7, 2016
I read the Dragon War series first and enjoyed all three of the books, so I ordered this trilogy. I am very disappointed with the Dawn of Dragons series (I'm in book 3 right now). This trilogy is full of grotesque descriptions of demons and gory war scenes. I wish I had not ordered this series, and now will think twice about reading anything from this author.
I have already some of the Requim"s stories and this book and its predecessor is equally engrossing. I think these stories are well thought out and have a natural flow to them. In the best keeping of the expert tale weaver Daniel keeps his characters vivid believable and we'll within the realms of the best dream weavers - your own imagine. He creates a world of magic and fantastical that keeps you submerged in the stories page after page after page. Many dawns have risen with me still in a world of wonder unable to put the book down and turn out the light. I have no hesitation in inviting anyone who like me believes in dragons and demons and the wonder of magic to open the first page and enter the world of wonder
I like the dawn of dragons books, but I felt that it lacked detail about the characters and surrounds. I have purchased the whole set as it was quite addictive. I was disappointed that the author seems to have split all of the books, Requiem's Hope is 211 pages. Dawn of Dragons Book 1 is 302 pages. Could have been 1 book.
The story of Requiem continues, with the battle for freedom and independence, against an evil host, do they win ???? Sorry but i don't do spoilers, but i will say this, i was not disappointed... Happy Reading
