SPOILER-FREE REVIEW: Iron Flame by Rebecca Yarros

by |November 17, 2023
One of the most highly anticipated sequels is finally here!

Is anyone else not emotionally okay after finishing Iron Flame? Just us? Okay.

Iron Flame takes readers on an adrenaline-pumping ride into a world of dragons, courage, and unyielding determination. It was fantastic to be once again thrust into the expertly woven world of Basgiath War College.

Our main protagonist, Violet Sorrengail, is tenacious and despite her physical struggles, emerges as a beacon of strength and intelligence that makes you root for her. The journey she goes on is a testament to the sturdiness of the human spirit as she has to constantly face adversity and overcome seemingly insurmountable odds. The character development of both her and the lovable side characters (shoutout to Rhiannon, Ridoc, Jesinia and Sawyer!) is superb in Iron Flame and readers will find themselves deeply invested in both their struggles and their triumphs.

Another development we loved was Andarna’s, who kept us thoroughly entertained. If you are wondering if Xaden and Violet’s romance is just as hot in Iron Flame as it was in Fourth Wing, we can confirm it is spicy!

As the plot unfolds, an intriguing layer of mystery arises and propels the narrative towards a gripping climax that will have you on the edge of your seat. The stakes are high, and Yarros masterfully keeps readers guessing, ensuring that the final pages are as pulse-pounding as the first.
Iron Flame is a testament to Rebecca Yarros’ storytelling prowess, combining elements of fantasy, romance, and adventure into an explosive g narrative.

Needless to say – we can’t wait for the next instalment in this series!

Iron Flame

The Empyrean: Book 2

by Rebecca Yarros

From the NUMBER ONE SUNDAY TIMES BESTELLING author, Rebecca Yarros, comes the eagerly anticipated sequel to TIKTOK SENSATION and RADIO TWO BOOK CLUB pick Fourth Wing . . .

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.
