Présentation de l'éditeur

Dragonlore, an epic fantasy trilogy, tells the story of Requiem -- an ancient kingdom whose people can grow wings, breathe fire, and take flight as dragons. This collection includes all three Dragonlore novels.

Book 1: A Dawn of Dragonfire -- Queen Solina, a desert tyrant, leads an army of phoenixes. She invades Requiem, vowing to destroy it. Requiem's people can become dragons, but how can they defeat the phoenixes, beasts woven of sunfire?

Book 2: A Day of Dragon Blood -- Solina raises new champions: the wyverns, creatures of iron scales and leathern wings. From their maws spews acid to eat through stone, steel, and dragon flesh. When the wyverns attack, can Requiem survive?

Book 3: A Night of Dragon Wings -- Vowing to kill every dragon, Solina summons her greatest warriors: the nephilim, the spawn of demons and their mortal brides. As ancient evil engulfs the world, Requiem's dragons roar, blow their fire, and fly to their last stand.

In 2011, the Song of Dragons trilogy introduced readers to mythical Requiem. The books went on to sell hundreds of thousands of copies, captivating readers around the world. Now a new dawn rises. Dragonlore returns to Requiem with an epic story--for both new readers and old fans--of blood, steel, and dragonfire.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Lovers of Dragons and drama..hold on to your seats! 5 mars 2013
Par Mary Barger - Publié sur Amazon.com

The Dragonlore Trilogy is packed full of the beloved Vir Requis fighting for their home and everything they hold dear in their lives. You do not have to have read the Song Of Dragons trilogy to jump into this one, however you truly should read them too.
I loved these books for the very detailed storyline and descriptions of the land. When you read a character you are swept away in how that person is feeling, love, loss, crushing defeats and hard won battles seem very real.
Daniel Arenson takes his time in crafting the story and making the words and feelings jump off the page and into your brain. Throughout reading these books I have laughed, I have cried and even a time or two cursed out loud at what happens!
Bringing together the Vir Requis with so many new foes will keep you on the edge of your seat waiting to see if the mighty dragons can conquer the enemy and sometimes their own feelings!
If you are a fan of dragons, you absolutely cannot go wrong in reading Dragonlore! I look forward to seeing more from the Vir Requis and seeing what new journeys they will take!

This new trilogy brings us back to the wonderful world of Requiem. 300 years have passed since our faithful heros of the previous trilogy have defeated Dies Irae for good. Requiem has recovered and is flourishing but it is not meant to last.

A dawn of dragon fire introduces a new antagonist, the beautiful queen of the desert Solina who as a youngster lived among the dragons pretty much against her will and after returning to her desert realm obtained immense powers including the ability to transform her people into phoenixes who outmatch our beloved dragons by an order of magnitude.

Here I will raise my only serious complaint in this new series. Solina is in many respects a female reincarnation of Dies Irae and the character has many of the same characteristics, from her motives growing up "bullied" by the dragons to many of the megalomanic and twisted insane unreasonable nature. While Blood of Requiem quickly skipped over the battle in which Dies Irae decimated Requiem Dawn of Dragons feels like it is retelling a similar story in much more detail.
It is however a wonderful story that has you sitting on the edge of your seat wondering page after page how our hero's are going to get themselves out of this mess.

When finally Solina is 'defeated', mind you at a very high price, Requiem gets a respite for a year, but then comes a Day of Dragon Blood.

A Day of Dragon blood in my humble opinion is the best book in the series yet. Its only weak point was how easily our heros fall for the trap set for them but it is non the less a thrilling ride. The wyverns for the first time are not some magical opponent but a great match for our dragons and as a result this book feels very real indeed. I simply could not put this book down.

The book ends with an amazing cliffhanger going into a Night of Dragon Wings. Though a good book to read this one is the weaker of the series. The wyverns weren't really defeated in the last book yet suddenly take a backseat to a new enemy that is introduced with much anticipation but leaves you wondering if they live up to that expectation. The Nephil do not seem as formidable an enemy as any of Daniels other creations, it is only in their sheer overpowering numbers that the dwindling force of Dragons stand on the loosing side of the battle. There are some great moments in this story but at the end I did feel it could have been better especially after the high a Day of Dragon blood turned out to be.

A Dawn of Dragonfire
Ahh, it's so good to get back into the world of Requiem. The story begins 300+ years after the last seven survivors from the Song of Dragons trilogy. We now hear of their ancestors, the ancient royal lines descendend from Aeternum, Terra Eleison, Gloriae, Agnus Dei, etc. The dragons have thrived, though of course their numbers are nowhere near where their golden age long long ago was. Nova Vita is the new capital and the Vir Requis have scattered across Requiem.

However, early on we hear of a war that happened 30 years ago, when Requiem's armies attacked the Tiranor, a country that makes it's dwelling in the sands and deserts. No real reason is ever quite given for the war; it almost seems undeserved, like Requiem just attacked a country because they were different. Throughout the book, I often wondered and wished the Vir Requis had learned from the attacks on them not to go out to war against others and to try to extinguish another race.

And now, the Tiranor people have risen from the damage the war had caused. We find out that the true conqueror seeking revenge for the war against Tiranor is Solina; the lost princess that had been adopted into the Vir Requis family as an orphan. Because of her "difference" and inability to shift, she was ridiculed; we never quite know whether she was ridiculed for real or whether she just read between the lines and thought people didn't like her.

The battle ensues as Solina attacks the Vir Requis. Once again the Vir Requis find lost artifacts and go in the search to bring them back to Requiem to save the day! While the story somehow seems very repetitive of the Song of Dragons book (aka, Requiem under attack for being "different" and will be wiped out of existence is the artifacts aren't recovered....and they manage to survive in the nick of time), the book is still VERY enjoyable. It's fun to hear briefly of how the Vir Requis have recovered from near decimation and of their determination to stay alive.

A Day of Dragon Blood
A year later....the Vir Requis have lost 20,000 and are down to 30,000 people. Seems like a lot? No, that's just the size of a small city nowadays. They are repairing their city, reinforcing their battlements and armor, and training everyone that is of age and capable of fighting to the cause. Unfortunately, all the seasoned veterans didn't survive, and this means the new soldiers are farmers and kids. There doesn't seem to be much hope.

They all know Solina is coming back with an even bigger army from Tiranor. They have spies on the inside in the hopes of getting a better heads up then they have in the past. The Vir Requis have reached out to all their old allies from Song of Dragons: the Griffins, the Salvanae, the men of Ossana. All of these allies decline; we don't know quite why. Have they forgotten over the centuries the struggle the Vir Requis have had to stay alive? Do they not want to jeopardize the lives of their own race and countrymen? Do they simply not care? They abandon the Vir Requis in an hour of greatest need, trying to convince them that they have enough people to fight this war, and at the same time forgetting that these "warriors of Requiem" are mere children that don't stand a chance.

So the war begins, and it's heart-wrenching. Vir Requis are dying left and right. There's no hope. I thought part way through "why didn't they send all the mothers and children to live with the Salvanae or Ossana to ensure the survival of their race?" It seems like that would have been an easy request to ask their allies. The Vir Requis always find a way though. Even when trapped with no escape, a new solution ensues.

While at first I was wondering "so what artifact will they find to help save the day?" I was very happy to know there was none. Not because I didn't want the day to be saved, but because the story needed to be new and not the same cycle. A battle. To the death. With no chance of survival. I think what makes the Vir Requis such a powerful race is the fact that they never give up even when there's no hope. When things get tough, the tough get tougher.

Now on to book three to know whether the Vir Requis will survive or whether their numbers will diminish again.

A Night of Dragon Wings
Solina can't be stopped. Even after two battles, she still has not had her revenge against Requiem and King Elethor. She starts the process to release an ancient evil among the land, even though all who hear of her plans KNOW that it's a terrible idea. But she doesn't care because she really is no longer a queen of Tiranor, but is using anything she can to attain her goal of defeating the Vir Requis. It's a wonder the Tiran are still following her wishes and accepting her as queen.

There's not much the Vir Requis can do in preparation. Except that once again, they go make an appeal to their allies. And this time they are met without hesitation. All nations know that this ancient evil that are the Nephilim are not simply being awaken to defeat Requiem, but will come after all. It's so sad that it took near annihilation of Requiem for their allies to finally realize that Solina would not stop at just conquering Requiem.

I do wonder though, where at the Crescent Isles people in all this? I loved their story in book 1 of this trilogy, but they have not resurfaced again, even when the world was near extinction.

Now we get to a big battle, and I was shocked at first because it seemed like it was the battle of the ages and it was all over within a chapter...umm, so much build-up for this? Thankfully it wasn't the end. All nations divide themselves to hit Solina in numerous areas, but that's about all we hear of it. The story mainly shifts to King Elethor and his storyline. Which is fine, but there was a lot more potential.

I think the ending happened a little too quickly, but I am also glad that the author ended the trilogy with the happy note of what happened to everyone after.

Overall review of the trilogy:
I enjoyed it. The first one was definitely better, but that's usually how sequels go. I do wish for Requiem to finally find peace and allies and no more enemies, but what story would that be? lol
I did notice there was a lot more sexual violence in this trilogy, which while not inappropriate, I think some of it could have been omitted. None of it was written in too much graphic detail though (which is also hard to find in books nowadays).
