__________________________________________

Welcome to the brutal and elite world of Basgiath War College . . .

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.

Everyone at Basgiath has an agenda, and every night could be your last. So, sleep with one eye open because once you enter, there are only two ways out: graduate or die.

Mail on Sunday
We weren't expecting to become obsessed with Rebecca Yarros's Fourth Wing, but we very much are - and we're not alone... Think Twilight meets Cruel Intentions meets Game of Thrones
Sunday Times Style
This book contains an addictive, drug like essence that will make you relinquish all responsibility until the very last word. Do not say I didn't warn you.
Glamour
Throw in an enemies-to-lovers plotline, a love triangle, some life-threatening trials and the threat of war in the outside world, and you've got yourself a deliciously gripping dish, which I downed in one sitting
Stylist
Dragons and war, passion and power...Fourth Wing is dazzling. Rebecca Yarros has created a world as compelling as it is deadly, and I can't wait to see where she takes it next
Nalini Singh
2024 is the Year of the Dragon, according to the Chinese calendar. Dive into a fantasy narrative featuring these mythical, winged creatures

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.
