"Fourth Wing will have your heart pounding from beginning to end... A fantasy like you've never read before."―#1 New York Times bestselling author Jennifer L. Armentrout

Enter the brutal and elite world of a war college for dragon riders from New York Times bestselling author Rebecca Yarros

Twenty-year-old Violet Sorrengail was supposed to enter the Scribe Quadrant, living a quiet life among books and history. Now, the commanding general—also known as her tough-as-talons mother—has ordered Violet to join the hundreds of candidates striving to become the elite of Navarre: dragon riders.

But when you’re smaller than everyone else and your body is brittle, death is only a heartbeat away...because dragons don’t bond to “fragile” humans. They incinerate them.

With fewer dragons willing to bond than cadets, most would kill Violet to better their own chances of success. The rest would kill her just for being her mother’s daughter—like Xaden Riorson, the most powerful and ruthless wingleader in the Riders Quadrant.

She’ll need every edge her wits can give her just to see the next sunrise.

Yet, with every day that passes, the war outside grows more deadly, the kingdom's protective wards are failing, and the death toll continues to rise. Even worse, Violet begins to suspect leadership is hiding a terrible secret.

Friends, enemies, lovers. Everyone at Basgiath War College has an agenda—because once you enter, there are only two ways out: graduate or die.

The Empyrean series is best enjoyed in order.

My *~Spoiler Free~* Thoughts

This is hands down one of my favorite reads of the year. It has grown incredibly popular on BookTok and Instagram because it is just so good. The book has it all, a feisty female main character (FMC) and a brooding male counterpart. Voilet could be a little aggravating at times, but I've never read a book where the main characters did not make me roll my eyes at least once.

The story is beautifully told, the world-building is on point, the character development is good and THERE ARE DRAGONS!!! The story is fast paced - believe me when I say you will fly through it. I read this book in 2 days, and I have a full time job and 2 little ones. That's how hooked I was. The book is a slow burn and the spice is *chefs kiss*. I pre-ordered book 2 the minute I finished. GO BUY THIS BOOK NOW!!

My Rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
