Kurzbeschreibung

17. Mai 2011
A new epic fantasy series begins. Song of Dragons tells a story of blood, steel, and dragonfire. BOOK ONE: BLOOD OF REQUIEM Long ago stood the kingdom of Requiem, a land of men who could grow wings and scales, breathe fire, and take flight as dragons. Requiem ruled the sky. But Dies Irae, a tyrant leading an army of griffins, hunted Requiem's people, burned their forests, and shattered their temples. Requiem fell. This ancient land now lies in ruin, its halls crumbled, its cries silenced, its skeletons littering the burned earth. In the wilderness, a scattering of survivors lives in hiding. The griffins still hunt them, and every day promises death. Will Requiem's last children perish in exile... or once more become dragons and fly to war?

ich muss gestehn, dass ich nicht über seite 50 hinausgekommen bin. die idee mit menschen die sich in drachen verwandeln können und der niedrige preis haben mich verleitet das buch zu kaufen.
aber die charaktere sind für mich so unglaublich schwarz/weiß überzeichnet, dass es scho fast weh tut. der einfache schreibstil tut sein übriges.

This book was the first of many i have read by Daniel Arensen and it was mind blowing. It's exciting, dramatic and still funny.
His writing is not overfilled with any frumpyso you are still able to capture the feeling of those days. I can truly recommend this book and al the other book Daniel wrote.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A living world 12. April 2013
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
I opened the book and BOOM I was in the epic world of dragons. A great book and compelling from the start. Must read for any fantasy lovers. I love the idea of people turning into dragons. The book isn't very long and of course, you can't compare it with other books because it is very unique and great fantasy literature.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Fast and Furious Dragons 4. Juni 2011
Von Dave - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
- - no spoilers - -

The vivid image on the cover drew me to this novel, and I am happy I have read it.

Blood of Requiem is a well-crafted novel, with strong, flowing prose, well-developed characters and a fast moving plot that keeps the reader engaged. The story follows the struggles of a few survivors of the Vis Requis to evade the evil King Dies Irae, who hunts these dragon people he calls weredragons mercilessly, aided by a host of griffins.

The plot is quite straightforward, with a few minor subplots. It allows for less intrigue than I usually like in my fantasy, but the storytelling and pace made up for it with ease. The worldbuilding is not earth-shattering, but well-developed and interesting enough, and there are some intriguing characters, most notably those of Benedictus, his daughter Agnus Dei and his estranged daughter and enemy Gloriae and young Kyrie.

My main gripe is with the character of Dies Irae, who is just your average, cruel, sadistic and bitter villain. I know that the black-and-white struggle of good against evil is still a strong theme, but I would have preferred to see a bit more grey. Despite this minor complaint, this was a fast and furious read, just like one of the many battles between Kyrie and the griffins.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Great read 18. Juli 2011
Von MarkAU - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
Whilst there is little original about the concepts, and the plot is fairly generic, the book is well written low fantasy which is strong on action. If you are looking for a long read with reams of philosophical rambling, don't buy this book. If you are looking for classic fantasy with action and magic - look no further.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Immersive and original 9. März 2012
Von Connie J. Jasperson - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
In Blood of Requiem Daniel Arenson has created an immersive and real world that takes what we thought we knew about dragons, griffins and were-people and twists it into a truly original tale. One of the things that struck me immediately was his use of Latin-sounding names for people and places, a touch which lends a sense of familiarity to his world. The reader immediately identifies the importance of each main character and place as they are introduced, because their names have strong historic and religious roots within our own society.

The Vir Requis are Weredragons, humans born with the ability to shift to draconic shape. The story opens with the final battle between two brothers, in which the young King of Requiem, Benedictus is the last of his kind, the Vir Requis to left alive. He manages to bite off the arm of his brother, the completely mad Dies Irae, and in the chaos he is able to flee to safety. Dies Irae survives and usurps the crown.

Dies Irae was not born with the ability to shift to dragon-form. This is seen as a defect by his autocratic father and as such he could not inherit the crown of Requiem. His younger brother Benedictus is instead made heir to the throne. Dies Irae later kidnaps Benedictus' daughter Gloriae, claiming her for his own, and takes the throne of Requiem by murdering his father. Griffins are bound to serve the ruler of Requiem by virtue of a sacred object, the Griffin Heart. Dies Irae steals that object, thus launching a war between those who can shape shift to dragonform and those who cannot, with himself as their new King. With the nearly invincible griffins in thrall to him, he succeeds in his genocide, leaving only a remnant of survivors. There is a rich, multi-layered backstory that is revealed in tantalizing bits as the story progresses

Hidden in the world are a few survivors of the Vir Requis, one of whom is Kyrie Eleison, a young boy weredragon who was found on the battlefield and taken into the home of a survivor, Mirum who raises him as her own. One day Dies Irae appears, and Mirum knows that Kyrie is in danger. She gives her life to allow him to escape, and he flees only to end up wounded and near death. Grief stricken, he determines to find the mythical black dragon, King Benedictus, and with his assistance Kyrie hopes take back Requiem from Dies Irae and his cruel daughter Gloriae.

Kyrie finds a man that he believes is Benedictus, who is going by the name Rex Tremendae. He forces his company on the old recluse and through a series of events he is proven right, Rex is none other than Benedictus. Kyrie forces Benedictus to face things that the old man would rather forget.

Benedictus' wife Lacrimosa and their daughter Agnus Dei still live, hidden away. There are many secrets and layers to the love story of Benedictus and Lacrimosa. She is a white weredragon, and Agnus Dei is a red weredragon. Kyrie is a green weredragon, and each color has strengths that are particular to that color that they can bring to any battle.

The many dimensions and rich backstory kept me reading, and turning the pages as fast as I could. I am impressed with the tapestry that Arenson weaves..Just when you think you have seen it all, there is more to see. I heartily recommend this engrossing tale to all who love dragons and truly enjoy epic fantasy.

1.0 von 5 Sternen Too Juvenile 6. September 2011
Von E. Garrison - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
I should've known by the title, but I wanted to love this. I mean weredragons. Frickin weredragons! How much more awesome can you get? I was thinking, "The author can't mess this up." Then... Horrible characters. Simply awful plotting.

I guess that's how.

I don't care about a map. They often look like crud in Kindle editions anyway. There were a couple of times when it was obvious that travel continuity was off anyway. The villains needed to be there so, bang they are. Pay no attention to linear time. Even though it's not a time travel adventure...

Evil tyrants who slaughter indiscriminately have rebellions. Even if they're hopeless rebellions. See human history for reference. When said tyrant decides to follow protagonists in mad genocidal quests, said rebellions get really easy to throw.

The prose didn't do anything for me, and I'm flabbergasted at how anyone can honestly review it well. Opinions vary, so mine is worth what you paid for it. Thought I'd offer a dissenting one to the top review, however.

I think the worst thing about the novel is how stupid the "heroes" are. We are talking epically dumb. So in that sense it is an epic tale. Example: When following a bad guy in pursuit flight on a dark night do you...
A) Follow directly behind bellowing incoherently and shooting flame to present the best possible target for the poisoned, self loading crossbow.
B) Fly high to descend on over-burdened enemy.
C) Fly low to swing up and rescue helpless dragon female dangling from monstrous griffin claws.

In this book you would naturally choose A), because the plot needs the helpless dragon chick to get captured, by the mustache-twirling villain.

The message of the book is that you can be remotely intelligent, but if you are you can't have even a smidgen of morality. Alternatively, you can be too stupid to live, but have a heart of gold. There are no other options.

Awesome cover, but an epic fail book.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Great book!! 18. August 2011
Von Universe in Words - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
At the centre of the book is Kyrie Eleison, a young Vir Requis, one of the few who have remained after the Great Battle. He wants to find Benedictus, the former king of the Requis, in order to revenge his dead parents and friends on Dies Irae, now king and brother of Benedictus. Kyrie is a great as a character because he is sometimes unstopable in his youthful enthousiasm. Benedictus is a great opposite to this and together they make the perfect master-student couple.

Arenson made the decision to write each chapter from a different character's perspective. Especially in a story like this, where there are two sides fighting each other, it allows the reader to be able to judge by themselves and not blindly follow what the main character thinks. I also really enjoyed the chapters from Gloriae's point of view. Gloriae is Dies Irae's daughter, however Benedictus beliefs she is his daughter. Gloriae knows none of this and has been raised to hate Vir Requis and her story is one of the most interesting ones in the book.
As you may have notices, all the characters have Latin, often religious names. Arenson did the same in 'Flaming Dove'. It shows extra consideration for his characters on the author's side. All the names tell us something about the characters. Benedictus' wife is called Lacrimosa, which means tears in Latin. She does have a lot to cry about, since her life has not exactly been easy. By doing this the characters gain extra depth and it shows the author's commitment.

I have enjoyed all of Arenson's books and I can't wait for the sequel to this one. Although this book can be read alone, I think it is almost impossible not to be wanting to read the sequels.
