"The first year is when some of us lose our lives. The second year is when the rest of us lose our humanity." Xaden Riorson
Everyone expected Violet Sorrengail to die during her first year at Basgiath War CollegeViolet included. But Threshing was only the first impossible test meant to weed out the weak-willed, the unworthy, and the unlucky.
Now the real training begins, and Violet's already wondering how she'll get through. It's not just that it's grueling and maliciously brutal, or even that it's designed to stretch the riders' capacity for pain beyond endurance. It's the new vice commandant, who's made it his personal mission to teach Violet exactly how powerless she isunless she betrays the man she loves.
Although Violet's body might be weaker and frailer than everyone else's, she still has her witsand a will of iron. And leadership is forgetting the most important lesson Basgiath has taught her: Dragon riders make their own rules.
But a determination to survive won't be enough this year.
Because Violet knows the real secret hidden for centuries at Basgiath War Collegeand nothing, not even dragon fire, may be enough to save them in the end.
The Empyrean series is best enjoyed in order.

Creo que hay toda una corriente de nuevos libros a los que llamamos young adult cuando lo que queremos decir realmente es "la novela adolescente de toda la vida pero con gente de 20 años y buenas escenas de follar". Me gusta mucho esta saga del Empíreo. Sufre de los clásicos fallos que tienen las novelas escritas en primera persona (personajes secundarios planos, excesiva protagonitis). El lore y el sistema de magias no es lo más complejo del mundo, pero funciona bien para lo que quiere ser la historia, y a estas alturas de la vida yo ya he escarmentado y no quiero más explicaciones detalladas de cómo funcionan las neveras de un mundo mágico si no aporta nada a la trama.
En cuanto a la historia en sí, creo que me gusta que no sea una cosa centrada únicamente en el romance, aunque este sea una parte principal. Todo el ecosistema dragones-jinetes, rebelión-tenemos que unirnos para combatir algo más grande, misterios del pasado es muy interesante. No viene a reinventar la rueda en nada, pero hacía muchísimo tiempo que no leía una combinación tan buena de fantasía y romance.
La carpeta en sí sigue sin terminarme de hacer click del todo, aunque me gusta muchísimo. Una de las cosas que sí me ha gustado es que los conflictos emocionales que surgen entre ellos se sienten bastante reales(la falta de confianza, secretos del pasado) y no forzados para meter drama gratuito. Sinceramente, le sigo poniendo la misma pega que en el libro 1: no son enemies to lovers y podrían haber sido unos enemies to lovers fantásticos. Pero como pareja ya establecida funcionan mucho mejor, y estoy deseando ver el juego que da esa revelación de las últimas páginas del libro en la siguiente entrega. ( )

This gets too much hate. It was a fine book and about the same as the first. Iron Flame reads slightly less YA than the first book, but there are still a lot of YA elements present.

I won't be continuing this series. However, if you enjoyed the first book for the actual plot (and not the attempt at romance), then this will still be an enjoyable read. ( )

Violet Sorrengail is now a 2nd year and waiting for her second signet from Andarna to manifest itself. She is still unable to control her lightening strikes. She now has a durable relationship with Xaden, a 24-year old lieutenant. He will protect her at any cost, including keeping secrets from her which she finds intolerable. In addition, their dragons, Tarin and Sgaeyl are a pair and cannot be separated for long, throwing Violet and Xaden together almost every weekend. Enter Major Varrish, a mean, vindictive man who relishes torture and does bring Violet almost to burnout when she will not order Andarna to the flying field. Andarna is undergoing her sleep and growth period in the Vale. Dain Aetos takes over as the Fourth Wing's leader and tells his father about something he "saw" in Violet's mind that caused the battle in Resson in the first book. Violet has discovered that the leaders have kept the existence of the wyvern and venin a secret from the people. Eventually, she is tortured when she is found with an original journal of the original six riders, but she is rescued by Xaden and Dain. She and half the company leave for Xaden's home, Riorson House located above Aretia, the capital of Tyrrendor and set up a flying school there. Quickly, they include the gryphons and their riders. Unfortunately, the wyvern and venin are coming for Basgiath, Navarre. How will Violet, Xaden, and their friends and colleagues save Basgiath? This is a riveting story, but I could do with very much less explicit sexual scenes. ( )

The plot absolutely drew me in and didn’t let me put the book down.
That said, this book is huge. 30 hours on audio and over 600 pages. It could have been edited down a bit, especially all the arguments between Violet and Xaden. They were the same thing over and over again.

4 Stars

Content: much the same as the first with way too much language, some *scenes* (easy to skip) and lots of violence ( )

Half this boon could have been cut out. I almost DNF’d it. Violet is one of the most annoying characters I’ve ever read and Xanden only personality trait is being sexy. Authors like Pierce Brown can make you emotionally attached to ancillary characters that are only in 10% of the book. This books was 600 pages and I discovered I hate the main characters and was bored the majority of the time. This was definitely stretched to fit a certain amount of pages. ( )
