"Suspenseful, sexy, and with incredibly entertaining storytelling, the first in Yarros' Empyrean series will delight fans of romantic, adventure-filled fantasy."—Booklist, starred review
"Fourth Wing will have your heart pounding from beginning to end ... A fantasy like you've never read before."?Jennifer L. Armentrout, #1 New York Times bestselling author
Enter the brutal and elite world of a war college for dragon riders from USA Today 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.
APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
Enter an intense world of love, danger, and dragons in this enticing romantic fantasy. Violet Sorrengail hoped to follow in her late father’s footsteps and become a scribe, but her fierce mother—the general of the kingdom of Navarre—has other ideas. She forces Violet to enter the cutthroat fight to become one of the elite dragon riders who are sworn to protect the kingdom, putting her in danger…and in the crosshairs of a brutal but undeniably sexy rival. Rebecca Yarros expertly blends epic world-building and a simmering enemies-to-lovers romance, and narrator Rebecca Soler captures all the excitement and sizzle with her expressive reading. The impressive depth of Violet’s character really comes through in audio, too: you can hear her steely determination and her belief in herself despite her physical limitations. Fans of the Hunger Games or Sarah J. Maas’ Throne of Glass series will love diving into this fascinating, violent world.
Great book. Totally addicted
Narrator ruined it
The narrators voice is so bad that it ruined the book for me. Do not do the audiobook.
Love the book… not so much the narrator
This book is great but there’s something about how this narrator reads gives me anxiety and not the fun kind when listening to a book. You can also tell that she has a cold at the end of the story.. I hate hearing her talk around the mucus
