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.

Wednesday ranting

I’m a fan of the duo Ilona Andrews and their Kate Daniels series. I often read their blog and really enjoy it, including their kindness in sharing free stories on their website. While reading their blog I decided to peep at the comments left by loyal fans and here is where I was flabbergasted at the audacity and stupidity of some people.

Idiots! Why idiots? Because I’m reluctant to use harsher words on my blog, you know, being new and all…

Anyway, apparently Curran (for those of you who have read these books know who I’m talking about, for those who haven’t, well, go buy the books), any way so it seems the man used the F word two or three times in an entire book. Comments from the fans.. they were offended! Offended? WTF!? Are you guys 5 years old? Your kids probably use language that would make a mechanic blush and you have the courage to criticise an author because she uses the F word 2 or 3 times in an entire book??!!

Oh please… F&*#K OFF!!!

Hate hypocrites!
