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.… (mais)

Violet has been training to be a scholar for what seems like most of her life, under the tutelage of her own scholar father. After his death she continued on that path, until her mother – a dragon rider of considerable rank – made the executive decision that Violet would follow in her mother’s (and her brother’s, and her sister’s) footsteps and enter the dragon rider training program. It’s a dangerous career path, with the majority of the first year students ending up dead before the year is over (or, really, even started), and Violet is not a likely candidate for survival. She’s short, slight, and her bones are devastatingly brittle. Oh, and there’s a giant target on her back, since the children of those who led the rebellion several years ago all would love to kill her because her mother is the reason most of their parents are dead. Her number one threat is the leader of the rebellion kids – and also Violet’s assigned wing leader. He’s the best of the riders and very, very dangerous. Also? Very, very handsome. Because of course he is. But Violet has some tricks up her sleeve, including a ridiculous amount of courage and stubbornness, so underestimating her is probably not the best idea.

Oh my lordy lou, I adored this book and can’t wait to get my hands on the next one. It ticks so many of my boxes: fabulous world building, amazingly detailed characters, excellent writing, superb twists, steamy enemies-to-lovers romance. It’s so, so good. ( )

Spoiler-free TL;DR review

I for the most part liked the characters (especially the dragons) but I found much of the world building (especially the political aspect) to be dumb and didn't really like the ending

Now for a longer review that will contain some spoilers:

I tend to really like sassy main and Violet fits the bill, Xaden makes a great love interest character and I mostly liked the way that relationship developed. Some of the side-characters were a little one-dimensional but you also had some good ones. I loved Tairn.

On the world-building. I mean Basgiath was fine as far as schools for magic go and the relationship between magic and dragons was interesting, but I was not a fan of the rest. For one making Wyvern bigger and more deadly than Dragons is not something I like, it goes against the long fantasy tradition of dragons being the most fearsome fantasy creature and especially for a book about dragons, diminishing their place is out of step. I was fine with venin having more powerful magics than dragon riders, especially since that arguably made sense in the lore where riders channel the magic of the dragons, while venin tap directly from the source. But the final battle was way too much about dragon vs wyvern and the venin magic didn't play much of a role in the final battle outside of being used to create wyvern.

I found much of the world-building to be a little too simplistic. The continent only has two Kingdoms on it, there seems to be only 3 magical creatures, there doesn't seem to be much of a political structure beyond a King and some generals. Making Navarre the 'bad-guys', I mean I spent most of the book thinking we'd get that angle, especially the more you learn about the rebellion/apostacy over the course of the book, but it was way too black and wide, I wish we saw more shades of grey on the humans. I was totally fine with them making Jack a psychopath, I mean if anything there weren't enough baddies in the student body, given I can imagine the kind of people an opportunity like dragon riding and the ruthless requirements to get through Basgiath would definitely attract people like Jack. But for the politics of Navarre, I wish we got more shades of grey then them being the bad guys. Especially as with the venin you don't know evil Kingdoms in the story.

But making Navarre the villians does beg some questions about the politics of the dragons, which given the series title I guess will be answered in future books. It seems some of the rebels were dragon riders, and what does that mean for the dragons? Doesn't it imply the dragons are subservient to their riders? Tairn certainly seems to be for Violet. I guess I wish we saw more cases of the dragons making decisions for the riders, rather than ultimately going along with whatever their rider wants. And doesn't it mean most of the dragons are fine with letting venin run wild as long as they don't threaten the Vale? But then why would Melgren's dragon be ok with Tairn and Sgaeyl and their loyalties, especially since they're two of the only dragons on the continent that could come close to matching him in power?

Also can I just say the erasing history thing is really dumb. It's just completely unrealistic to expect an entire generation to be willing to go through with such a grand conspiracy, and besides erasing history is much harder and less effective than historical revisionism.

Guys, I have no idea how to rate this book. I couldn’t put it down, which is shocking considering that I don’t do well with purely fantasy worlds. The dragon aspect was fascinating and I liked the college setting. But also, there was a TON of strong language and some *scenes* that I skipped.
I can’t believe I’m saying this, but I think I will read the second book when it comes out.
Also, I can say with 100% confidence that I would not have made it through this book without the audiobook. It really brought the story to life, and the narrator was quite good. Beware that there are many, many characters though.
Almost forgot to add, but I was not overly fond of the romance. I think the story was stronger before the romance plot was introduced.

In case this was not clear, I DO NOT recommend this for high schoolers. ( )

Violet Sorrengail was raised to be a scribe, but her mother was the commander of the dragon section, so she was forced into the dangerous and punishing course of dragon riders. Violet is small and could be easily injured. Her childhood friend, Dain Aetos, is in his 2nd year and the head of her squad. He tries to protect her and to convince her to leave and become a scribe. There are others there who wish her harm due to her mother's hand in their parents' deaths (the parents had been traitors). One is Xaden Riorson, a very handsome and accomplished rider who is the head of her Wing. Rhiannon Matthias and Violet become friends after safety passing over the Precipice walk on the first day. Many candidates died by falling off and down 200 feet to the river below. Very few of the original candidates were expected to make it to the second year. This is a very violent book where life does not seem to be worth much. Violet also has her sister Mira Sorrengail, who is a dragon rider. Her brother Brennan had also been a dragon rider and healer, but he was killed during battle. So far the story has been how Violet has managed to get by all the extreme challenges without getting killed. She is helped by Mira, Rhiannon, Dain, and Xaden, They only want the best of the best so that when it comes time for the dragon to choose their next rider and bond with them, the riders will have the skill and integrity to meet a dragon's approval. Brennan had left a book of tips to help getting by all the obstacles for his sister Mira who passed it on to Violet. With Rhiannon's, Xaden's and Dain's help, Violet made it though the initial course and is chosen by not one, but two dragons. Unfortunately, her primary dragon is mated with Xaden's dragon so they will never be far apart. This is an interesting fantasy novel which also seems to say something about past mistakes and rewriting history to obscure those mistakes. ( )
