This took me way longer to read than the first. I was good with it till the last few chapters. It has nothing to do with the ending and more with how it was written. It was done confusing without a good enough explanation where it literally was telling the reader one character the whole time continued to do so then suddenly jumped to another. I just didn't get it. Like I can explain it myself with what I know about the world but the book didn't do that. It was frustrating. ( )

Loved it! Kept me entertained. I do think she follows familiar plot twists, for I'm not surprised. I was surprised at the ending because I hadn't paid attention to how "this" happens. After reviewing how "this" happens, it's exactly what would happen. I had to laugh. This series is right up my alley and has greatly entertained me, putting me in bondage until I finished. I am looking forward to the next book and am relieved to be released from the world for a time to get some things done in my life--besides listening!!! ( )

Having adored Fourth Wing, I took the very rare step of preordering Iron Flame for myself as a Christmas present and yet it still took me months to finally read it.

There was always the risk I’d be disappointed but just as with Fourth Wing I devoured Iron Flame in one sitting, enchanted once again by the adventure, intrigue, action and romance.

The stakes are higher with the revelation that the Venin are planning to take down the wards that protect Navarre. Having to return to Basgiath College with the revolution’s secret makes Violet vulnerable, and though she has new allies, she also attracts new enemies. There are plenty of moments of breathtaking tension and fast-paced action that had me on the edge of my seat.

Yarros continues to build on the lore of her world, revealing a little more about its political and magical history. She also shares some more details about the dragons, and their bargain with the people of Navarre. Tairn and Andarna aren’t as present in this instalment but still steal every scene they are in.

Violet and Xaden’s relationship is as complicated as ever. Trust is the big issue in this novel with Violet naively, and hypocritically, believing there should be no secrets between the pair. The repetition of Violet’s insecurities is irritating, and really the only misstep in the novel for me. Thankfully the scorching hot scenes between Violet and Xaden serve as a satisfying distraction.

Be warned, Iron Flame ends on another devastating cliffhanger and as yet there is no announcement on when we can expect book 3. There are rumours that the Empyrean series will run to 6 books and no matter how long it takes, I’ll be there for every one. ( )

Ahhhhhh! Freaking cliffhanger! The book started a little slow, but honestly I was still so into it the whole time. I know everyone loves the Violet and Xaden romance, but I just like the dragons and the world building. The romance is fine; but I am loving the fantasy aspect of this. It's no small feat to write a 600+ page romantasy that readers don't want to put down. You could murder someone with this book! Now I freaking have to wait forever for the next book! ( )

I own this book. Find this review on The StoryGraph.

Oh look, the second part of the Fourth Wing series. Like Fourth Wing, I wanted to read Iron Flame, but so many people placed a hold on it at the library that I had to buy it instead. I was hoping that after reading the dumpster fire that is Fourth Wing, Iron Flame would be better. Unfortunately, the latter was worse than the former.

It starts (more like continues) with Violet recovering from the battle that happened during the graduation ceremony, so she's a second year cadet, and everything will get harder for her as long as she keeps working at Basgiath War College. Everything wrong with Fourth Wing is still here in Iron Flame, much to my disappointment. I hoped the author fixed the flaws in the worldbuilding and characters, but alas, she didn't. For some reason, the new commander, whose name I don't remember, wants Violet to break up with Xaden. Why? I don't know. It's another plot hole. I used to like Violet and Xaden but now I feel disconnected from them and I can't relate to them anymore. Nothing much happens for the first 600 pages, right until the conclusion leaves me on a cliffhanger. I'm undecided on whether I'll read the third instalment when it comes out.

To summarise, Iron Flame looked like a promising improvement over Fourth Wing, but in the end, the author underwhelmed me again with her latest piece of literature, leaving me wondering if her works are worth my time. ( )
