"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.

Greta story, narrator should not have recorded while sick

The narrator was clearly sick. They should’ve waited to record, it’s sooo hard to listen to the sniffling a snorting. Story is fantastic!

Amazing read, not so great listen

This book was great, I was coming down from an ACOTAR high and needed something to scratch the itch! I almost gave up, however, because it sounded like the narrator was fighting a cold for 70% of the book. I couldn’t listen with headphones because of the swallowing and snot sounds.

I have to wait how long for the next one!?

Loved the story, twists, turns, and then that ending. BAM.

It was really hard to get past how the narrator seemed sick for most of the book. The last half was definitely better, but I’m sorry, you can totally tell she had a cold or something.

First book with dragons and I’m hooked.

This book gave me the same feeling as the first time read a fae book. HIGHLY recommend! Next book comes out in November 2023 so you won’t have to wait a very long time to find out what happens next.

My new favourite book of all time!!!

I devoured this book, enemies to lovers, fated mates, dragons with dragon to human rider dialogue. The book hangover will be long with this book and it won’t be long before I’ll be reading.

Couldn’t get enough of these characters and their story. ***** to the author and ***** to the narrator.

Amazing

Love when I can’t see an ending coming! Awesome story, so gripping, and very well performed. If you’re a fan of Sarah J Maas or Tamora Pierce you’ll love this book.

Great Read!

Interesting story with relatable characters. I’ve been looking for new YA fantasy and chose this based off of social media suggestions. I was pleasantly surprised. I’m looking forward to the rest of the story!

Captivating

I enjoyed the storyline and how it kept me wanting more. Some sections were a little tough with the narrator sounding under the weather. But can’t wait for book two in November
