Don’t miss the explosive new sequel to Rebecca Yarros’s bestselling hit, Fourth Wing.
“The first year is when some of us lose our lives. The second year is when the rest of us lose our humanity.” —Xaden Riorson
Everyone expected Violet Sorrengail to die during her first year at Basgiath War College—Violet included. But Threshing was only the first impossible test meant to weed out the weak-willed, the unworthy, and the unlucky.
Now the real training begins, and Violet’s already wondering how she’ll get through. It’s not just that it’s grueling and maliciously brutal, or even that it’s designed to stretch the riders’ capacity for pain beyond endurance. It’s the new vice commandant, who’s made it his personal mission to teach Violet exactly how powerless she is–unless she betrays the man she loves.
Although Violet’s body might be weaker and frailer than everyone else’s, she still has her wits—and a will of iron. And leadership is forgetting the most important lesson Basgiath has taught her: Dragon riders make their own rules.
But a determination to survive won’t be enough this year.
Because Violet knows the real secret hidden for centuries at Basgiath War College—and nothing, not even dragon fire, may be enough to save them in the end.
I’m going to leave this review short and sweet because I’m a firm believer of going into a story, completely blind. Especially with a book like this one.
So I’m sure most of you have heard of this series. It’s basically everywhere right now and for good reason.
This series is about Basgiath, a war college, and the students and faculty that attend/work at it. AND of course, we can’t forget the dragons.
Iron Flame is year 2 for Violet and her friends and man, does this one pack a punch. It’s pretty much action right from the very beginning. I thought book one stressed me out but man, this one topped that and more.
I won’t give anything away but if you like fantasy romance, I 100% recommend this one. I haven’t been this invested in a world in years. I can’t wait for the rest of the books in this series! Also, THAT ending. My heart is so happy.
