Love dark, epic fantasy like A Game of Thrones by George R. R. Martin? You’ll love Song of Dragons, a new fantasy series about blood, steel, and dragonfire.


Long ago stood the kingdom of Requiem, a land of men who could grow wings and scales, breathe fire, and take flight as dragons. Requiem ruled the sky.

But Dies Irae, a tyrant leading an army of griffins, hunted Requiem’s people, burned their forests, and shattered their temples. Requiem fell. This ancient land now lies in ruin, its halls crumbled, its cries silenced, its skeletons littering the burned earth.

In the wilderness, a scattering of survivors lives in hiding. The griffins still hunt them, and every day promises death. Will Requiem’s last children perish in exile… or once more become dragons and fly to war?

Here’s what the reviewers have to say:

Beautifully written, engaging, exciting. The characters are well-developed with good depth. The bad guy is vile, wicked, and ruthless. It’s easy to hate him, yet you feel a bit sorry for him (but not much). Can’t wait for book two!


I walked away from this book wanting the second one. I love dragons and this book was nothing short of excellent. I absolutely HATED the antagonist and fell in love with the main characters. I always appreciate a book that really gets you to feel passionate about the people in it and this one did it for me.


This book had me turning page after page to see what happens. It’s exciting and good with fleshed out characters that will make you scream. I want to read more of this series and I would recommend this fantasy author to others.
