A review of Forged in Dragonfire (Flame of Requiem Book 1) by Daniel Arenson


Okay, so here goes I confess, I was seduced by the title and the cover, I mean look at it, would´t you be tempted?

Have you ever read a book that you were sort of annoyed and wanted to close it but at the same time curiosity got the better of you and you just keep on going? That was what this book was like for me until about half way through then I just kept going until I finished. What made me want to close it? Too many eighteen year olds, their thoughts and inexperienced minds (to no fault of their own).

It was an interesting read although reading about young adults and what goes through their minds can be a challenge but there are enough twisted adults in this book to overlook this. As the story progresses these annoying dialogues somehow dissipate as the eighteen year olds are forced to make tough decisions and they grow from frightened kids into potential interesting adults.
Fortunately Daniel Arenson is a good story teller and included just enough violence and action to make the book worth reading. The characters are diverse and alluring, all in their own right. From the weak, to the brave and feisty where emotions range from fear to anger revenge and hope. I will look forward to reading book 2.
