From fire and blood, the kingdom of Requiem rises. It is a home for the lost, the exiled, the hunted--those they call weredragons. In their new kingdom, they gather--men and women who can grow wings, breathe fire, and take flight as dragons. But there is one who would see this fledgling kingdom crushed.

    Enjoyable pulp fantasy. There's a lot of good action, and if you're into dragons, you'll probably like these books quite a bit. That being said, I felt at times like things were happening too quickly. I think this book would have benefited from slowing down at times, both in terms of plot progression and character development. I was entertained the whole way through, though, so I overlooked some of the shortcomings. Rating: 7/10 Enjoyable pulp fantasy.

    I don't like leaving trilogies un-read, and I often get in a trap of "First books are often weak because they are a lot of setup, let's see if book 2 is a bit better." Then, after book 2, the Sunk Cost Fallacy kicks in, and I think, "Well, I came this far. Might as well see how it ends." There were more surprises in this book, such as (view spoiler)[ when the young prince, freshly rescued, kills himself.

There were more surprises in this book, such as (view spoiler)[ when the young prince, freshly rescued, kills himself. (hide spoiler)] While it certainly had shock value and reiterated a Song of Ice and Fire-esque "Anyone can die" atmosphere, it felt like it was only done for shock value. It didn't change the plot much. In fact, it kind of cheapened the end of the previous book to have it happen so soon. Had it happened closer to the end, it would have worked. As an event in chapter 2, not so much. The world is never fleshed out. Countries, peoples, they just randomly seem to appear out of nowhere to make plot happen. Its impossible to know where anything is, how far away they are, how they relate to each other. Its disjointed, the worldbuilding equivalent of Calvinball. I know this sounds silly, being that this is a series with were-dragons and demons and whatnot, but the rocs irritate me to no end. They are constantly described as greasy and smelly, to the point that they are dripping goo constantly. That fucks up feathers. Don't you see the news after an oil spill?Those birds couldn't fly.

    It was good but getting a little bored of the of the formula in these books. The dragons need help, they split up and seek it but first they must earn the respect of those they seek. A test of strength is needed. I saw this in Moth books too. I like Arenson's books but getting a little stale. I had stopped reading Koontz for the same reason, every book was too similar. I'll come back to Arenson after a hiatus It was good but getting a little bored of the of the formula in these books.

    This series just went more downhill the more I read it. I finished the third book so I could get it out of my mind and read something good. Such an interesting idea but poor execution.

    90%, up 5% compared to the first book. One-day read. Following the first book and the persecution of the dragons, the focus shifts to the small group of dragons trying to start their own 'kingdom'. Which also means that non-battle violence drops significantly. In its place comes a larger swath of crude humor - as other dragons learn about the existence of Requiem and seek it out, one of them challenges Maev's bluntness and desire to fight.

There are some twists, though some of them are the type that was, is, and will be used and while it's not obvious, it's not surprising - but that's the nature of politics and not the fault of writing (because these cases have only a few ways how they can play out). What became an annoyance was the repeated description of the various demons every time the PoV shifted to Raem.

    This one was not quite as good as its predecessor. Although it’s just as dark, in fact maybe even more, it felt rushed. While the first book set the stage and moved quickly towards the climax, this one introduced too much too soon without taking the time to intrigue me. Still I did enjoy it and am looking forward to see how he closes it. There was a pleasant unpredictability that fantasy novels far too often lack.

    I'm enjoying the series and the world building. It's interesting to me the "bronze age" setup currently present in the story. In the previous book, there are some descriptions of the people of Eteer that depict them with high brow ridges and inset eyes, which goes along with the setting of the world, but... While I understand that this is a much more rough world, there is no place for peacetime here. We get pages and pages of battles/conflict with a paragraph of two of the in between.

I'm reading this chronologically story-wise, not by publication date so I can expect less development as I go along in the series and don't know where I'll be as I start on the next trilogy, but it's a good world, just wish the author would've spent more time filling in the details, and not just the broad strokes.

    The dragons of Requiem have regrouped and are wanting to start building their kingdom. However, before that can be done, there are still enemies who seek to destroy them. Raem is on the move with an army of a thousand demons and Requiem's dragons must find allies. Seeking these allies will stretch all those involved and require that some sacrifices be made. As the group sets out in different directions, they must be strong if they wish to survive.

Daniel Arenson started weaving a tale of dragons years ago and he continues to build upon that legacy.

    Easily the best bronze aged fantasy with dragons vs. demons I've ever read. Actually, really good overall. Not the densest of books by any means, but enjoyable. Some pretty intense parts, especially toward the end. Some very interesting world building in this, compared to the first in the series. My only complaint is that sometimes characters seem to know things that doesn't make sense that they know, such as where locations are or names of other characters they've never seen, and other similar Easily the best bronze aged fantasy with dragons vs. demons I've ever read.

    Weredragons Unite! One thing that I look for in fiction is a villain(s) who's sympathetic. Requiem's Hope delivers in that department. I can understand the motives and hurt from each antagonist. I did think this novel was somewhat predictable and still has too much repetition. There were several scenes that definitely could've been shortened. And now, I'm off upon an adventure to finish this trilogy. Weredragons Unite! One thing that I look for in fiction is a villain(s) who's sympathetic. Requiem's Hope delivers in that department.

    The story grows and the battle rages. Again Arenson does a fantastic job of building characters and settings. The battles are fantastic and the demons of the abyss horrible and terrifying. I do feel that he could make some of the trials of the main characters a little less easily resolved. Some are trapped and freed within a page or two. But otherwise this is a great addition to this trilogy

    Loved this book and love the series. I am a dragon lover so this attracted me to the series. I had never read Mr. Arenson before and am sure glad I found him. The series is wonderful and something I would recommend to anyone.

    Disappointing I had hoped the writing would get better but it did not. Still filled with repetitive descriptions and makes for a bland story.
