Violet enters her second year at Basgiath college.

Inconsistent ✨ Pining ✨ Juvenile

Such a disappointing follow up to a fun first book. Violet and Xaden are insufferable. Most of their problems feel self inflicted. None of their decisions make any sense, especially when they sacrifice logic (and keeping everyone else alive!) for their own romantic plot. Overall terrible writing that could‘ve benefited from some editing guidance.

marleed I was disappointed in Book 2, as well, and likely won‘t continue the series. 2d

Wasn‘t a huge fan of Fourth Wing but figured I‘d give the sequel a go to see if more time with the characters/plot changed my mind. Unfortunately, it didn‘t. I can see why people enjoy this story but for me the “shocks” and “twists” don‘t have a huge impact. I think because nothing ever really get explained in the detail needed so when those things happen you don‘t have an emotional reaction to it. Surely there will be another book but I‘m out

RamsFan1963 I never made it past the first book. 4d
TheDaysGoBy @RamsFan1963 I probably wouldn‘t have bothered if I hadn‘t gotten the sequel for Christmas. For such long books the author could‘ve done way more world building 3d
RamsFan1963 @TheDaysGoBy I couldn't get past the, IMO, school girl romance elements that brought the story to a screeching halt every time they popped up. 3d

This month I‘m so busy with work, that I haven‘t had much time to read. It‘s a good thing that the #BookSpin number was 2, because my 2 was Iron Flame, and I just finished reading Fourth Wing in January. Still at about 30% in, let‘s see if I can finish it before March comes.

4/5 ⭐️. I cried, I squawked, and that ending has me wondering what the heck is going to happen!!!!

An adrenaline rush from the first to the last. It‘s very long, so I alternated between the hardcover and audio. Narration is excellent.

Soft pick. It was fine. I was entertained.The plot thickened somewhat, but I felt underwhelmed when it came to the character development . It could have been 250 pages shorter without taking away from the narrative too. Mature content felt a bit gratuitous. But it hit all romantasy checkboxes and I will likely read the next installment when it comes out, but not quite craving it yet.

So. Much. Action. I knew this was going to be fast paced based on the first book, but to tear through a 600 page book in 2 days is ridiculous. And yet I don‘t regret it. The ending is infuriating, but it had to go that way for there to be 3 more books in the making. My favorite character is Andarna. I love her and everything she is, was, and will be. Book #12 in 2024

This sequel was the fast, fun speed read I hoped it would be. The romance novel dialogue was, as the kids say, cringe at times, "How can I say those 3 little words if you won't fully open your heart to me?" Okay, buddy. Violet should know by now that even Xaden's secrets have secrets. Still, the plot raced along, introducing new characters & settings, while moving steadily toward the coming crisis. Not sure about that ending, but bring on book 3!

Sequel to Fourth Wing; fantasy, action, romance, and heartbreak. This book brings back a great cast of characters and introduces new people in the mix. Being a second year means risking friendship as well as life and limb as Violet & Xaden struggle to decide who should know what and how to trust each other.

Hi everyone on Litsy. I took a 3 month break from social media- but I did do a lot of listening to audiobooks- These are the latest 6. Most of them were re listens. My favourite was the new to me Iron Flame the second book in my new favourite series. There‘s lots of action as the students get into their second year of training at the military college. What‘s not to love there‘s dragons and quite a bit of heat. Can‘t wait for the next book 🐉

Part 1: This section felt overlong and a bit boring. I really missed the dragon school part of the first book. I was hoping for more of that. Instead we get more politics and so much torture. Uggh.

Part 2: was more exciting and I found myself enjoying the characters again. I still wish there was not so much politics. All of the high ranking characters are terrible people. I liked this book but I think the first one was better.

I tried a few chapters and it just isn‘t doing it for me. The protagonist feels just off as an adult is much too whiny for me. Because we are in her head all of the time I had to bail

Had to read after finishing Fourth Wing with a cliff hanger. If I‘m being honest, book 1 was far more intriguing. Characters developed in book 1 slightly changed in book 2. Romance was not quite as steamy in this title.

This book felt way rushed after the first book in the series. It could have been 200 pages less. Otherwise it is a fun fantasy novel.

⭐⭐⭐
A soft pick, just like the first book..

For me, it was waaaay too long! Part 1 e part 2 could have been 2 separate books, so the author could have focused better on the new characters and the plot development of the finale that felt rushed and chaotic (but great cliffhanger!)
I preferred part 1, but overall it was entertaining and I'm really curious to see where the story goes..

As a long term reader of high fantasy I don‘t really get the Empyrean hype. But I do see how the books are easily digested by folks who don‘t read as much (or as seriously), so kudos to Yarros for that! On top of that, this 2nd offering is stronger than the 1st, with a more interesting overall plot.

I loved the first book but I got to a point in this book that I honestly didn‘t care what happened! Anyone else feel this way? So much detail and the storyline just dragged for me. Violet can‘t make a decision in love or war if you payed her! Just let the Dragons talk and write the story! Anyone else feel this way?

robinb Oh no! I bought this one but haven‘t read it yet. Sorry you were disappointed. 2mo

Woah. So much happens in this book… much of it pretty intense. But there is still the spiciness, the banter that makes me chuckle, and the friendship bonds I cheer for. I know I maybe should read this more critically, but I‘m fully invested in this world and that definitely sways my opinion. Love it.

A lot of new information has come to light. This book had me in its grip, and I just needed to continue reading. A few new well written characters also came in. I loved the squad and their feelings for eachother! Andarna made me laugh. I just tremendously enjoyed reading this sequel!

This was an entertaining read, but somehow the romance elements almost entirely missed me in this one, as compared to how surprising and engaging I found them in the first book. I kept skimming the sex and romantic angst to get back to the adventure plot. Which, honestly, makes me feel embarrassingly basic bro-ish. Though, to be fair, I did very much enjoy all of the other character relationships and arcs.

And that is a wrap on 2023! I really enjoyed this, fast action, compelling story, cool dragons (though I‘ll always want more dragons) and a memorable way to end the year. I‘d heard mixed reviews and I get it, this could have used a bit of editing, it didn‘t need to be 622 pages long. But I had fun being back in this world and can‘t wait for the next one. #BookspinBingo @TheAromaofBooks

The ending was excellent! Really looking forward to the next book. I couldn't give it 5 stars because it was difficult to get into this one. Maybe it was the timing of trying to read it during a busy holiday season? Not sure. However the ending was very good and made up for the sluggish first portion. ⭐⭐⭐⭐
