7 reviews for Fourth Wing Hardcover by Rebecca Yarros (The Empyrean, 1)

  1. Jessica S.

    Everything you’re hearing about Rebecca Yarros’ Fourth Wing is absolutely the truth! If you’re ready for an action packed, magically breathtaking, and heartbreakingly romantic read that will steal your breath away then this is the read for you. Also be aware that this is most definitely an adult novel. While the heroine is just past teen years, you could call this New Adult. I don’t think I’ve seen the *-word used so many times on one page before and throughout a novel as a whole, but there you go!Right away I found myself connecting to Violet in certain ways. She’s the daughter of a powerful commander mother, her older brother died a war hero, and her older sister is one of the best dragon riders in the provinces. But unlike her siblings, Violet does not have that physical strength. As a child she had medical issues and that turned her into the adult woman she is today, who can easily be broken. But for untold reasons, her mother wants her to be a rider instead of a scribe as she longed to be.With no other choice she’s off to the school that will either train her to be a dragon rider or she will die trying. Even those who are better fit than her will still lose their lives somewhere in their three years of training. Violet isn’t happy with the course that’s forced upon her, but she’s not going to back down from the impossible challenge set before her. Even when she learns that a great deal of the students at this school are children of the dissenters. There was a great battle a few years ago, one her brother fought in and lost his life when a man was set against the king of the provinces and wanted to tear down the structure of life everyone lived by. It was an ugly battle, but the king granted mercy upon the dissenters’ children if they were to join the riders, which that in itself is almost a death sentence since not many can survive the years leading up to graduation. And at the helm of all this is Xander, the son of the man who started the war that ultimately killed her brother…and Violet’s mother was the one to execute his father, so there’s no love lost between these two.So naturally, we all know what’s to come between them! But I will say that it’s not something that happens instantaneously. In fact, this was an ultimate enemies to lovers situation as Violet is certain that Xander would rather murder her than let the grueling trials of college do her in. That and the fact that Violet makes an enemy of one of the other students on her first day. Surprisingly, not a child of a dissenter but just a regular old d***** b**.Every first year is training to be physically fit and worthy of becoming a dragon rider. That eventually leads to trying to earn themselves a dragon, for the rider doesn’t get to pick the dragon, the dragon picks the rider.There’s almost 500 pages of story in this book and a lot happens over the course of a year. Violet makes friends, she makes enemies. It’s a wild ride for sure! The story even reminded me of another one I read years ago, but instead of dragons that one involved vampires (naturally!) and while I saw some similarities with the competition within the school that trains young adults to be protectors essentially, but that is about all they shared. I was expecting to see a lot of “school days” scenarios going down in this one and while we do get that sense with classes and tests and challenges, there was a whole lot more to this one. Though Violet appears weak at first glance, she is a force to be reckoned with and I so, so admired her for all that she accomplishes while being looked upon as someone who is weak and pitiful.I also wasn’t expecting to see Violet make true friendships in this one! At a cutthroat school where only the best of the best can win and even those who do win may not even be chosen by a dragon, you don’t really expect anyone to be genuine or kind. But I was happy to be proven wrong in this one.Then there’s the every complicated relationship brewing between Violet and Xaden. Xaden being the son of the most hated man in the provinces, he’s a dangerous unknown entity and yet he and Violet continually circle one another. They have an odd dynamic where they are never quite sure of the other one and eventually that evolves into something deeper. Honestly, none of it was a surprise. I mean the blurb pretty much tells you that without telling you that, as any reader could tell you.I do enjoy the slow burn romance though. The ones that take time to build and where the lovers start out as enemies of a kind.This book was just full of surprises and I pretty much loved every moment of it! The pacing was sort of a slow buildup but in a way it was more like Yarros was slowly reeling the reader in by giving little nibbles of the ultimately entertaining moments and then letting us simmer before reeling us in deeper as the pages went by. True, some fighting moments felt a bit drawn out but in a sense, I can kind of understand why those moments had to take up so much time.The ending…oh that ending! As soon as I finish writing this I am going back to read the blurb of Iron Flame because I wouldn’t let myself read that the other day when it was revealed! The ending is something of a cliffhanger, but not one where you scream at the agony of the wait ahead of you. It’s the kind of explosive ending that just gears you up for the next book and all the excitement that’s to come from it! You won’t scream in agony, but you will have emotions. My emotions are rolling all over the place! From the looks of things, Fourth Wing was Yarros’ first Fantasy novel and what a novel it was! I mean you can’t go wrong with DRAGONS! Dragons are everything in fantasy! All I can really say that the hype behind this series is justified! This was an incredibly epic and amazing read that held me riveted from start to finish! Violet is my new favorite heroine that I can relate to! She’s a girl I will root for until the very end! If you’re ready to be reeled into the spellbinding new fantasy everyone is raving about then be sure to pick up a copy soon!And on a side note, I can’t decide if it’s a good thing or not that we get the sequel before the end of the year because the real question remains…what happens AFTER THAT?! How long will that wait be? Time will tell I suppose, but I’ll be here for it for sure!Overall Rating 5/5 stars

    I first came across Fourth Wing when I noticed it in the #1 position on Amazon’s Best Science Fiction and Fantasy of 2023 So Far. But beyond that selection, I looked at how the reviews were trending. At the time, there were more than 21,000 reviews (it’s now about to crest 40,000), and the average was a whopping 4.8 stars. It has to be good for that many people to love it, right? In need of a palate cleanser after the difficult read that was The Whispers, I decided I’d limit the likelihood of another clunker and see what all the hype is about. And I’m happy to say that I get why so many people love this book: it’s pretty great.Fourth Wing is set at Basgiath War College in the mythical land of Navarre. It opens on Conscription Day, where thousands of twenty-year-olds assemble to take their place among the healers, scribes, or infantry. The most elite of them try to join the most selective branch and become dragon riders.Our heroine is Violet Sorrengail. Bookish and smart, yet frail, she always imagined a future as a scribe, just as her father had been. But her mother is a rider and a general in the army, and she has other ideas. Against Violet’s wishes, her mother insists she attempt to be a rider as well. But this isn’t an idle push in a different direction. The stakes are the highest possible for those trying to become riders: from the opening conscription challenge through bonding with a dragon, there are dozens of opportunities to fail, and any failure when attempting to become a rider equals death.In addition to the general peril of the tasks at hand, there is also a ruthlessness among the members of the War College. Fewer classmates means better opportunities to bond a dragon, and so the murder of fellow classmates, while perhaps not encouraged, is certainly allowed, making every waking moment one filled with potential death. Yarros creates an interesting caste within the college of students who carry “rebellion relics”. They are the children of adults involved in a rebellious uprising six years prior. All of the adults were executed, and the children were only spared execution as well by being forced into conscription as riders. As a result, they all tend to possess a brooding darkness — you could think of them as the “Slytherin” of Basgiath. To further complicate things for Violet, those children of the rebels all intensely hate her because Violet’s mother was responsible for ordering their parents’ execution.The novel is packed with a ton of genre-bending elements. There is the basic plot — Violet’s unlikely journey through her first year at Basgiath War College — which stirred up memories of one of my all-time favorite books, Pat Conroy’s The Lords of Discipline, based on Conroy’s first year at The Citadel military college. There are dragons and dragon riders, which of course evokes memories of plenty of fantasy novels, with Anne McCaffrey’s Dragonriders of Pern series top of mind. And then there’s some romance, and a potential love triangle, which starts out feeling like something from a YA novel, but ends up a lot more R-rated and steamy, and more akin to what you might find in a novel with Fabio on the cover. Add to this a nuanced backstory and some misdirection on who the reader should trust and believe, and Fourth Wing truly has something for everyone.There is depth to the story and characters, which elevates the story and I’m sure plays a big role in the stellar reviews. Yarros handles relationships well, whether it’s the strained relationship between Violet and her mother, the love between Violet and her sister, or the friendships Violet forges with her classmates. The romance is the romance; honestly I could have done without it, and while it was almost humorous at times, it works for what it is meant to be. Yarros also does a standout job of presenting how her characters handle loss. Whether it’s grieving the loss of family members or their classmates, there is an undercurrent of sadness and longing that affects many of the characters and hardens them to the task at hand. Despite the intensity of their training, Yarros does a pretty good job reminding us that they’re only in their early twenties and still figuring out a lot of life.I suspect a lot of the hype and enjoyment of the book is related to how Yarros turns a straightforward “year 1 as a student story” into something more. I can’t help but compare that to the Harry Potter books (except, of course, Harry never had hot magical sex with Ginny Weasley — at least not within the pages of any of the books!). Those novels changed significantly for me with the third book in the series, The Prisoner of Azkaban. Where books 1 and 2 were decent and straightforward YA novels, The Prisoner of Azkaban took the story to a more nuanced and mature level. Yarros does the same thing here, but all within the pages of a single book. I get why people are so drawn to the story.Overall, it’s a winner. It’s fun, and while it feels derivative of several other novels, it also combines those stories and plots in its own unique way. Book 2, Iron Flame, is already set for release this November (I’ve already ordered my copy!), and so if you fall in love with the characters, you’ll have the opportunity to spend more time with them before long (well, at least with those who survive Fourth Wing). It’s a compelling read and like the other 40,000+ readers who have this trending at almost 5 stars, I don’t think you’ll be disappointed.

    his book is a beautiful, consuming, addicting fantasyThis book is a beautiful, consuming, addicting fantasy that I wish I could read all over again for the first time! The pacing is absolutely spot on, it includes a slow burn, enemies to lovers angsty romance that sparks right off the page, incredible but easy to follow world building and my absolute favourite trope of found family!The reader is pulled in to the breathtaking world of a war college for dragon riders, we meet Violet as she is forced to follow in her families footsteps and enter the riders quadrant, instead of becoming a scribe (a scholar). Violet struggles with chronic pain and weak joints, I appreciated the author giving a voice to chronic conditions while demonstrating the Violet’s resilience in how she overcame her bodies differences, never treating them as a disability but just as something unique.One of the greatest strengths of this book lies in its meticulous world-building. The author creates a vivid universe, rich in intricate details that transport readers to a realm where imagination runs wild. Each setting is exquisitely described, effortlessly pulling us into the heart of the story. I could so clearly picture each individual setting in my head, it was such a unique and intriguing fantasy world. And the dragons…I have never been so entranced by fantasy creatures in a book before!The characters are equally exceptional. Rebecca Yarros masterfully crafts a diverse cast that is not only relatable but also leaves a lasting impression. Their strengths, vulnerabilities, and complex emotions make them feel like genuine individuals, with whom readers can form deep connections. Watching their personal journeys unfold and witnessing their growth is a true pleasure. I also loved the inclusion of LGBTQ+ characters without making them a stereotype or token character placed simply to fill a quota. Sexual and gender identities were mentioned but never hovered on, it was a very small but heartwarming detail.I very much enjoyed how Violet’s journey coming into her true powers was realistic, she wasn’t automatically the strongest and best candidate, she had to work harder and smarter than the rest of the riders. Resilience is a central theme in this book. The characters face daunting challenges, both physical and emotional, and the author expertly portrays their perseverance and unwavering determination. Through their struggles, the reader is reminded of the power of the human spirit and the indomitable will to overcome even the most daunting obstacles.The plot of is an exhilarating rollercoaster ride from start to finish. Action-packed sequences and heart-stopping moments keep readers on the edge of their seats, desperate to uncover what lies around the next corner. Rebecca Yarros skillfully balances intensity with moments of respite, allowing readers to catch their breath before plunging them back into the heart-pounding action. The intricate twists and turns keep the plot engaging, ensuring that boredom never has a chance to set in. And when I say heart-pounding, I truly mean this, as the last action sequence had me so intensely concentrated that my apple watch gave me a warning that my heart rate was rising without any exercise occurring, I was that invested!This is an outstanding novel that deserves all the praise it has been receiving and more. With its exceptional world-building, well-developed characters, thrilling plot, and theme of resilience, it captivated me from the very beginning. Rebecca Yarros’s skillful storytelling transports readers to a realm where imagination knows no bounds, leaving you yearning for more. Prepare to be swept away on a breathtaking journey that will leave you exhilarated and inspired. This is a true fantasy masterpiece!!
