Fourth Wing – Empyrean, Book 1
Introducing an Instant New York Times Bestseller and a highly anticipated book on Goodreads, “Fourth Wing” by Rebecca Yarros takes readers on a suspenseful and adventurous journey into the elite world of dragon riders. The first installment in the Empyrean series has received critical acclaim, captivating fans of romantic and action-packed fantasy.
In this fantastical universe, we follow twenty-year-old Violet Sorrengail, who was initially destined for a quieter life in the Scribe Quadrant, surrounded by books and history. However, her plans take a dramatic turn when her formidable mother, the commanding general, orders her to join the prestigious Navarre war college for dragon riders.
Violet’s dream of bonding with a dragon faces significant challenges. Her physical size is smaller than most, and her body is delicate and fragile, which makes her a perceived liability in the eyes of dragon riders. In this world, dragons are selective and do not bond with “fragile” humans – they instead incinerate them. Violet’s life hangs on a razor’s edge, surrounded by competitors willing to kill her to increase their chances of bonding with a dragon or merely due to her association with her mother, General Sorrengail.
Among these ruthless competitors stands Xaden Riorson, the powerful and ruthless wingleader in the Riders Quadrant. Violet must rely on her wits and intelligence to survive and secure her place among the candidates vying for the limited dragon bonds.
But the dangers extend far beyond the competition within the college. The external world is fraught with peril, and the kingdom’s protective wards are weakening. As the death toll rises, Violet grows suspicious of the leadership, sensing a hidden and terrible secret that could change everything.
At Basgiath War College, alliances are precarious, and everyone has their own agenda. Friends, enemies, and lovers weave a complex web of intrigue, and Violet must navigate through this treacherous landscape. The stakes are high, for once you step foot in the war college, there are only two possible outcomes: graduation or death.
Rebecca Yarros skillfully crafts a gripping tale filled with vivid imagery, intricate world-building, and well-developed characters. The Empyrean series promises an enthralling and immersive experience for fantasy enthusiasts. To fully appreciate the depth of this captivating narrative, readers are encouraged to enjoy the series in chronological order.
