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 …

Sparkling start, slow finish

3 stars

This was overall a very enjoyable read that bogged down at the end. It made heavy use of YA tropes but had adults-only romance and those two components fit awkwardly together. The characters' dialogue was very modern, which took getting used to with the setting.

The first two-thirds were a real page-turner that I compulsively read until I slowed down at the end.

The equation here was (a worse version of Scholomance) + (a better version of Divergent) + (a few Game of Thrones elements) + (sex scenes).

I'll definitely read the next one, and I wonder if the school will continue to feature in the plot, or if it will go another direction.

Couldn't Finish

I put this book down and couldn't pick it up again. I never felt the plot materialize any stakes for the characters, and the main character describing her horniness in excruciatingly cringey detail for the nth time was enough to make me give up waiting.

Review of 'Fourth Wing' on 'Storygraph'

No rating

Ugh. Where do I even start. Yes, the premise of the book is very promising. But the prose is so poorly written. It's as if the author just kept filling up her word count for the day. Also, there are many plot holes. I can accept flawed characters, but the MC couldn't get any more generic and cliché. I tried to give it time to see if it improves but no it just the same over and over. I really wanted this to work for me but unfortunately it didn't.

I jumped on the hype train with this book, mainly because the premise sounded interesting - a dragon riding college? But I admit that this is the first ever "romance" book I've read, and I'm not sure what to make of that regarding this book. In my opinion, there wasn't really much romance in this book, but rather quite a lot of horniness. Which ironically is also what I liked least about this book (aside from its very militaristic nature). I think it could have been an infinitely better book without the main character constantly salivating over some guy, who no less is supposedly the son of someone who killed her brother? WTF??? I get that it serves to illustrate that not everything is black and white, but I found it cringe at times.

What I did like about the book is the worldbuilding (again, minus the militaristic nature). The …

Starts well, ends badly

Content warning Lots of plot devices remain unaddressed. If the protagonists can mentally talk to each other, there must be others who can? Not addressed. If more than 3 meet, then they are invisible to the bad guy? Surely that means he knows of such occasions.
