Publisher Description

“Unputdownable thrill ride with an epic love story.” - # 1 New York Times bestselling author Tracy Wolff

“Fourth Wing will have your heart pounding from beginning to end. Brutal games, grumpy dragons, complex characters, sizzling sexual tension, magic, and war...a fantasy like you've never read before.” - # 1 New York Times Bestselling author Jennifer L. Armentrout

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.

Smiling Face with Heart-Eyes“Edit to add review of bonus chapters: We get some of Sgaels perspective too with Xaden's!! 😍 Honestly, we see so much more of Xaden's mind with his POV that I'm hopeful we get more of his, along with Sgael's, & maybe even Tairn & Andarna. It would be so amazing to see things from the dragons perspectives! 😍 Well, I jumped on the band wagon with this one. I can't say anything that others haven't already said. All I can say is you'll laugh. You'll cry. You'll swoon. You'll want to throw the book. You may even be like me and accidentally throw the book. It wasn't my proudest moment, I'll admit it. But it deserved it. I can also say this was worth all the hype and I'm so glad I read this. I already pre-ordered book two.”
