I love this series and can't get enough of it but I wish they hadn't skipped the stats. It wasn't every time but for anyone following the story it was noticeable. Stats are a big point in the litrpg genre.

Minalan gave up a promising career as a professional warmage to live the quiet life of a village spellmonger in the remote mountain valley of Boval. It was a peaceful, beautiful little fief, far from the dangerous feudal petty squabbles of the Five Duchies, on the world of Callidore. There were cows. Lots of cows. And cheese. For six months things went well. Then one night Minalan is forced to pick up his mageblade again to defend his adopted home from the vanguard of an army of goblins bent on a genocidal crusade against all mankind. And that was the good news.

I have read all the books and short stories in this series. They are some of my favorite and I was excited when I saw there was an audible version. Then I listened to it. The narrator does not do this book any justice! His tone is all wrong and even though he tries to perform most of it comes across as monotone. Also when he does manage emphasis it in the wrong places. Lastly he misprocesses almost every name and magical term in the book! If this book interests you read it, it is a great one, but do not bother with the audible version

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. Everywhere their curse is the same 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. Together they will forge a new tribe, a home for their kind. A dawn of dragon rises. The nation of Requiem is born.

What would have made Requiem's Song better?

Less flopping around between and less degradation of the main characters. They got beat, raped and killed so often I just couldn't keep track of who was doing what to whom.

Would you ever listen to anything by Daniel Arenson again?

Everyone deserves a second chance but I will never listen to this series again

Two forms of power - natural and chemical - divide the world. Dragons, who keep the chemical power in check, have long retreated from human sight; few still believe in them. Inside a castle surrounded by Tuscan hills more and more threatened by chemical forces, 16-year-old Anders lives a sheltered life. But much as his parents try, Anders can't avoid the forces that threaten....

A product of the latest technologies, Barliona is a virtual world brimming with fun and entertainment. The government has become the guarantor for the in-game currency, allowing its free circulation. As a result the population floods Barliona in pursuit of easy money. It doesn't take long for the game developers to discover a source of free labor: real-world prison convicts. While their bodies are locked in special auto-maintenance virtual capsules, the prisoners' minds are released into Barliona's virtual mines.

Barliona: a virtual world jam-packed with monsters, battles - and, predictably, players. Millions of them come to Barliona, looking forward to the things they can't get in real life: elves and magic, dragons and princesses, and unforgettable combat. The game has become so popular that players now choose to spend months online without returning home. In Barliona, anything goes: You can assault fellow players, level up, become a mythical hero, a wizard, or a legendary thief.
