Product Description

Product Description

Song of Dragons -- the bestselling fantasy series beginning with Blood of Requiem -- continues with a new tale of blood, steel, and dragonfire.


The nightshades cover the land. Demons of smoke and shadow, they fear no sword or arrow. They suck the souls from all who live, like a glutton sucking marrow from bones. The world falls under their darkness.

But the nightshades crave more than random ruin. The souls of mere humans will not sate them. They seek dragons.

Requiem's last dragons, a mere scattering of survivors, have fought off men and griffins. But how can they fight the nightshades, creatures they cannot cut or burn?

Light of Requiem (Song of Dragons, Book 3) -- now available!

More About the Author

Daniel Arenson is an author of epic fantasy.

Three of his trilogies -- Song of Dragons, Dragonlore, and The Dragon War -- are set in Requiem, a world where humans can turn into dragons. He's also the author of Moth, a series about a world torn in two -- its one half always in sunlight, the other always dark. Several of Daniel's novels have hit Amazon's overall Top 100 bestsellers list. In total, his books have sold over 250,000 copies.

Raised on Dungeons & Dragons, Lord of the Rings, and scratchy Star Wars VHS tapes, Daniel still consumes -- and tries to contribute to -- geek culture. He lives in Canada with his wife and pet birds.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not bad 24 Dec 2012

The book did not catch hold of me as others have, so in the end it was not a book that I looked forward to reading, shame because the idea was good.

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely loved it! 9 Feb 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
I absolutely loved the first book, because it was one of the most original dragon stories I have ever read and when it ended I felt there was so much more to tell. 'Tears of Requiem' picks up right where 'Blood of Requiem' left of, which meant I was immediately sucked back into the story. Kyrie is on the run with the last remaining Vir Requis: Benedictus, his wife Lacrimosa and their daughter Agnus Dei. Gloriae, the daughter who was stolen by Dies Irae, has released the nightshades, who are ravaging the kingdom and killing its inhabitants. These Nightshades were a brilliant addition to the story because they are genuinely terrifying. Especially the effect they have on Gloriae and, later on, on Dies Irae leaves a lasting impression. Thankfully, this book has the right mix between action and context. There are impressive fight scenes in which full use is made of the fact that the main characters are dragons. And there is still time for the characters to develop.

What I think is great in the story is that the Vir Requis aren't out for revenge per se, they want to rebuild their own home, Requiem. It is very much a battle for equality and acceptance and this is perhaps best represented in Gloriae. In this book she finally has to face up to who she is and what she has done. Because Arenson has chosen to write each chapter from another perspective we also get to see how thoughts and actions are opposed. Kyrie is an adorable character that I think everyone could identify with. He is full of life and need for adventure, yet he is also loyal and honest. His relationship with Agnus Dei is therefor not a big surprise. She is my absolute favourite character. At times she is filled with anger and loss and at other times she can be caring and forgiving.

4.0 out of 5 stars Awesome 6 Feb 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
One of my favourite book series of all time. It got slightly repetitive and predictable at times, but for the most part I simply couldn't put the trilogy down! Great mixture of adult themes, comedy, drama and fantasy-action.Would definitely reccomend to fans of the genre.

5.0 out of 5 stars A rare find 4 Jan 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This sequel did not disappoint. These two so far are the type of books that I had searched for for a very long time, the kind you all too rarely find. When I finished reading,I was in tears. I hope that Arenson is very proud. Must read the 3rd soon!
