Favourite book of July 2023 - Review (Blogmas 2023 - Day 20)

 Hello everyone!!

In July I cave in to the hype and read the Fourth Wing and it became my favourite book of the month.

“Hope is a fickle, dangerous thing. It steals your focus and aims it toward the possibilities instead of keeping it where it belongs—on the probabilities.”
― Rebecca Yarros, Fourth Wing

The Fourth Wing by Rebecca Yarros is the first book in The Empyrean trilogy and it is a fantasy romance. 
This book has gathered a lot of hype around it, so it was obvious that I would check it out.
After reading the first pages, I couldn't put it down and I understood the hype completely. This book is very addictive. It's fast-paced and full of tension.
I really loved the world-building with the dragons and the magic system. Rebecca Yarros does the enemies-to-lovers trope perfectly and the main characters Xaden & Violet were exactly what I needed.
This book left me with a book hangover , that took me awhile to get over it.

I highly recommend it and I cannot wait to read book 2, Iron Flame.

Rating: 5 Stars

About the book:

Welcome to the brutal and elite world of Basgiath War College, where everyone has an agenda, and every night could be your last . . .

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.

Alliances will be forged. Lives will be lost. Traitors will become allies . . . or even lovers. But sleep with one eye open because once you enter, there are only two ways out: graduate or die.
See you in the next post and don't forget to keep reading!!!
