Overview

The Dragonswarm (The Dragonprince's Legacy, #2) by Aaron Pogue

The Kingdom of the Sarianne teeters on the brink. While its tyrant king plays out his petty vendettas, rebellion foments on the edges of his domain. Politics and power struggles gamble civilization on the tides of war.

Yet war is not the greatest threat to civilization. A far older enemy rises. The dragons are waking and these fiends of Chaos will swarm across the world of men, razing it to bedrock just as they have done in ages past.

But this time the world of men has a champion in Daven Carrickson. Once a beggar and still a fugitive from the king's justice, Daven is also a hero with unrivaled powers. A brush with one of the deadly dragons left him forever bonded to the beast and able to tap into the ever-shifting maelstrom of Chaos that roils beneath man's fragile reality.

It is a dangerous connection, one that threatens to consume him. Can he pay even that ultimate price if it means the salvation of humanity?

The Dragonswarm is the second book in the Dragonprince's Legacy.

I try to read books that are part of a series consecutively, if I can, but in and of itself, that’s a problem, especially if only part of the series has been published. That is not the case with this particular novel, being the second book in a trilogy, so there’s no excuse. Dragonswarm by Aaron Pogue had the misfortune of being read directly following the Kingkiller series by Patrick Rothfuss. Having said that, Pogue did an excellent job in having Daven pull me out of the magic cloud of Kvothe and drop me into the swarm of dragons – whose names are impossible to pronounce. If you’re a reader who is more inclined to love a story that is more centered on action and plot development, than character-centered, much like epics like Lord of the Rings by Tolkien or the Gunslinger Series by King, then this is a story for you. A majority of the writing focuses on the magic, the dragons, the quest, and the ensuing battle. Pogue is able to create a great visual. Being a character-centered reader and writer, I would have loved to see more development in the relationship between Daven and his lady love, his schoolboy friend, and more conflict with the King and the leaders at the Academy. However, I loved the connection Daven had with, and against, the dragons. I’ve never seen dragons depicted in this particular light before, and found it mesmerizing. The magic shared between the two is also a very imaginative element. This was a good read. I enjoyed it, and I would definitely recommend it. Till next time, ~T.L. Gray Author of the Arcainian Series

If the 3rd book is as good as the first 2 then it will definitely be a trilogy to be read over and over.

I have to say hands down this book is a must read. I couldn't put it down. It went along the same pace as the first book. It answers a lot questions that you'll have from the first book. Such as to the past with the dragons and how their power works. It answer's why Daven's power is so much different from other wizards. This book is perfect for anyone who love's dragons and magic. I will defiantly be buying the third book when it comes out.

First let me say, I received an ARC from the author and was so excited! I received it Saturday nite and I was done by lunch today! The main characters in the book come alive and practically jump off the page. I can picture them all and what their world must look like. The storyline is intriguing enough to keep one guessing about what is going to happen next, but consistent enough to be an easy read. Yes there are some ideas about Chaos and power that might be hard to follow at first, but if you have read these type of books before it won't be a problem. I really enjoyed how the main character, Daven, grows in his own power, but still needs his friends to ground him, to keep him human. Thanks again, Aaron Pogue, for allowing me to be one of the first to read this book! Now how long to the next one???....

Just to mention, I've not read these, but my hubs will not bother w/reviews and I felt they needed to be left. Hubs finished bk one on the plane to Europe, first thing he did when landed in Stockholm, airport! was hook to WiFi and download bk 2. My hubs is never this detected to bks. All he can say, kill more dragons! So whatever your doing, job well done.

With the sequel to his first book, Taming Fire (The Dragonprince Trilogy, #1), Aaron Pogue brings Daven back to continue his quest to save the world he knows despite how it has treated him. Hunted and hated, Daven persists in learning to grow into the unique creature he is now shown to be; able to look beneath the illusion that is his reality, yet still reacting with instincts learned during his outcast years, he must meld these contrasting parts of himself together if he is to even begin to fight the Dragonswarm. The second book in The Dragonprince Trilogy doesn't fail to thrill. Pick up The Dragonswarm (The Dragonprince Trilogy, #2) today and live Daven's adventure in your own imagination. Words fail to suffice.

The story was awesome. But the ending left me feeling really empty. Theres supposed to b a huge war against dragons and yet a king lays seige to a ledgendary tower defended by a man with powers so great a school of wizards look like clowns. Yet here he is in a seige. Dragons attack and all the king does is move in and "claim" the tower? Then trys to take credit for something he has no clue about?? No grudges are settled the war only begins and then i read the words THE END?.. then the third book is supposed to be about daven dissapearing? No way! He wouldnt just leave the worlds people like this! Especislly after two books showing the king only cares about revenge! Read if u want its an awesome book untill page 620 ish. Then stop reading and mske up ur own ending
