Iron Flame by Rebecca Yarros: My honest thoughts on the book’s plot, characters, and overall impact.

So, I took the second book of The Empyrean series – Iron Flame by Rebecca Yarros – and read it as soon as possible, and, of course, I am willing to share my impressions with you. The story continues with Violet Sorrengail, who somehow justified surviving her first year at Basgiath War College. However, the obstacles she encounters now are much more complex and meant to test riders to their limits since The B drug series.

As Violet goes through more harsh training, there is a new vice commandant there who wants to make Violet crack and give up on the love she has… Xaden Riorson. Despite being written off by her physical helplessness, Violet is intelligent and has the strongest of wills. The threats are more severe, and she has to survive this toxic atmosphere with much more vigour.

In the midst of this, Violet stumbles upon a centuries-old mystery contained at Basgiath War College and everything they know could be at risk. Violet knows that as soon as the fighting increases in strength, she and her companion will not be enough, even the mythical dragon fire that has protected her before.
