Now, the commanding generalalso known as her tough-as-talons motherhas ordered Violet to join the hundreds of candidates striving to become the elite of Navarre: dragon riders. But when youre smaller than everyone else and your body is brittle, death is only a heartbeat away...because dragons dont 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 mothers daughterlike Xaden Riorson, the most powerful and ruthless wingleader in the Riders Quadrant. Shell 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 agendabecause once you enter, there are only two ways out: graduate or die.

This is the book that everyone is talking about and reading at the moment. Lots of action, fantasy, and romance. I really liked it and I‘ve reserved the 2nd book from my local library. Looking forward to reading it!

Listening to the dramatized audio of this book on my recent walks, it feels so real with a cast and sound effects I turned around several times thinking something was behind me. Several women at work are listening and now I‘m hooked! Enough to walk 3 miles in 85 degree heat today 🥵🤣

We are vacationing with two other families this year, and almost all of the readers going have read this and the second book in the series. My BFF, my sis in law, my BFF‘s daughter and my two bonus daughters (my sons‘ GFs). I don‘t want to feel left out! I borrowed my daughter‘s copy - she hasn‘t read it yet. Hoping I can finish both before we go on vacation. Was slow to start for me, but it‘s picking up. ❤️📚

5⭐
𝐏𝐫𝐨𝐬⇩
-I already loved this author‘s contemporary romances
-She pulls off the new genre of fantasy fantastically
-Exceptional world-building
-These dragons are oozing personality…they are the best part of the whole series
-The narration is exceptionally cast for the most part
𝐂𝐨𝐧𝐬⇩
-The sound effects can be a touch distracting, although it was better when I had headphones on.

This is the absolute worst book I've ever read. I hated every single thing about it. The writing, the straight up copying of popular series. Nothing in this world made any sense. Of course, we have the amazing BADASS girl who has no idea what she's doing, but somehow manages to be the most special person ever. And the guy she's lusting over is a tall, dark, brooding bad boy with shadow powers, who hates her, but wants to make her his. Eyeroll.

LOVED it. By the time Violet‘s dragon bonded her, I was IN. Dragons, magic, numerous gruesome deaths, a bit of daft “sizzling” tension, great fun. I‘m all for the easy reads right now.

A movie in your mind is the best way to describe this. I am even more ready for book 3 now… which is now pushed out to January 2025. I need Onyx Storm pronto! I yet why Yarros needs to take care of herself in this - I also have EDS and sometimes you‘re just ridiculously exhausted for extended periods. I will do whatever it takes to help her get this bad boy finished, though. Seriously.

My first foray into BookTok hype was…fine? A solid ⭐️⭐️⭐️ for a fast-paced and dragon-centered narrative, but predictable romance and some of the most clumsily written sex scenes I‘ve ever read knocked at least two stars off. I did buy the sequel before I was done, so am maybe being too harsh 🤷🏻‍♀️

This was a ⭐️⭐️⭐️ read for me. I know, everyone loves it! But while the overarching idea was original, all the ways it played out felt formulaic. The enemies to lovers was… so predictable. And I hated how Violet was “strong” but she was constantly talking about how weak she was and 1000% just focused on helping/impressing/getting the man. I got bored in the middle, but I will say the end picked up and was good. Not planning to read Iron Flame.

Oh my gosh.. I started reading this last year with my partner. We had more time and read together often. We had some schedule changes and I‘ve been reading solo this year, but I haven‘t worked up the nerve to resume Fourth Wing.
I finished ACOTAR and needed a break from romantasy, but I‘m back baby!! Excited to dive back in. I hope she‘s every bit as dramatic and magical as I‘ve heard. 🫣✨

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I get the hype, I really do. However, the very prominent and frequent lusting of the two main characters and graphic scenes kind of took away from how good the rest of the book was. Also the romance between Violet and Xaden felt a bit immature at times, especially towards the end. There were several majestic moments and plot points that I absolutely loved, and the cliffhanger demands for the sequel to be read.

robinb This was a 4⭐️ for me as well. I had an issue with the amount of vulgarity in it. The storyline could have survived without it. 3mo
Gryffleclaw95 @robinb I completely agree! I definitely think that the book would have been so much better without it. 3mo

Okay, I'm officially hooked! I highly enjoyed this second part of the graphic audio more than the first. I didn't hear Violet talk about how hot Xaden was as much as the first part (this was kind of annoying). I was not expecting the ending, nor was I expecting my reaction when one of the characters died. Overall, I give the entire book 4.5 stars.

5✨ The plot was well thought out and there was a real element of danger. We do lose people both good and bad. The dragon element was perfect, and I love the young dragon. We don‘t really know who to trust, and that ending was a huge shock! The hype was true for me. There was a warning for sexual content in the audio, which I appreciated, but really besides three scenes it was not too overwhelming for someone who doesn‘t want to read it.

Finished listening to Part 1 of the graphic audio of The Fourth Wing. It ended with the unbounded attacking Violet. I enjoyed the first part, especially when they met the dragons. Now I need to get the second part.

Violet must beat the odds to survive and become a (dragon) rider. Then she has to choose between the kingdom she's been raised to protect and the well-being of the entire realm. Suspense, action, steam, and Violence. A definite 5⭐️ read!

I've been doing much #audiocooking at this trip. I am listening to Part 1 of the dramatization of The Fourth Wing. I feel like I'm listening to an epic soap opera.

Highly addictive. I will admit I am a bit of a sucker for romantasy but I did feel less icky after listening to this than some of the others. The world-building is good. Enemy to lovers trope is a bit tired but an academy setting always pulls me in.
Sex scenes are quite graphic, which I don‘t really have an issue with but sometimes awkward on audio.
Proceeded immediately to the second book.

This book was insane! It‘s been forever since I‘ve inhaled a book like this. Terrific fantasy, dragons, heroes, all the things. Hunger games meets the Dragon Riders of Pern. Warning: there were some truly cringy sex scenes. Otherwise- phenominal!

Awk_Word_Smith Amen. And the cringey scenes just seemed to needlessly go on and on for pages and pages. I was just: ok already, I get it. 4mo

I am so disappointed on all levels: not original story elements, badly executed tropes, predictable plot twists, bland love interest and cartoonish antagonists. The action and fighting scenes were good but they do not warrant the hype. Worst: The "Oh My God" phrase in the bedroom is so overused and here was nothing original about it. I have read so much better romantasies.

RamsFan1963 I'm glad I'm not the only one that panned this. I was beginning feel like a little island in a big sea of Litsy hype. 4mo
julesG @RamsFan1963 No, you're not the only one. I bailed. Totally over-hyped book. 4mo
monibookishnerd I constantly had a feeling of deja-vu while reading. It was like all the popular tropes and elements from the best fantasy books of the last 20 years were taken and bunched together. Especially the similarities between the Blood Queen series (FMC and plot) were astounding. 4mo
emz711 for real. i don't get the hype. twist at the end was nice though. I'll hype this one instead which is also a school and people are dying but totally different than this, and way, way hotter. 4mo

I read it (how could I avoid it? It was fun, whatevs, will read the next...) but can now only think of Anne McCaffrey (rip), the O.G. of thirsty, violent people with psychic bonds to large flying reptiles. I dunno if all the Tairn/Andarna/Violet stans are aware? But they should go read The White Dragon immediately.
