Book Review: Fourth Wing by Rebecca Yarros is LIVE

Fourth Wing, the first book of the Empyrean series by Rebecca Yarros, is LIVE! Check out my spoiler-free book review of this epic fantasy romance. 

The Fourth Wing by Rebecca Yarros Kindle Crack



Enter the brutal and elite world of a war college for dragon riders from USA Today bestselling author Rebecca Yarros


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.


Friends, enemies, lovers. Everyone at Basgiath War College has an agenda—because once you enter, there are only two ways out: graduate or die.

Spoiler-free Review

Fourth Wing (The Empyrean, #1)Fourth Wing by Rebecca Yarros
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

The Fourth Wing (The Empyrean, 1) by Rebecca Yarros is absolutely brilliant! Rebecca knocked it out of the park with the first installment in The Empyrean series. Did I ever think I would be obsessed with dragons and magic? Nope. Rebecca's addictive storytelling made me fall hard for this brutal, new adult fantasy world. Move over Game of Thrones; there's a new badass dragon world that will leave you breathless! 

Rebecca's writing style captivated me from the first to the last page. I felt like I was riding a dragon, learning to wield magic and training in hand-to-hand combat, all while trying to stay alive. This story played out like an edge-of-your-seat action adventure. I need the next book YESTERDAY with that ending! I'm invested in these characters and can't wait to see what happens to Vi and Xaden and all of the fantastic secondary characters in the next book when it releases in November 2023. Hands down, The Fourth Wing is one of my top reads of 2023—Chef's kiss!

It's official.

I'm eighteen and a young woman with endless possibilities on my way to reunite with my mom in Colorado after five years apart--she had a little weed incident in Nebraska.

At the airport, she springs the news on me ... she's leaving for a month of job training. And me? I'm left on my own in the basement she's renting from the fisherman, aka her landlord who lives upstairs. 

He's ten years older than me. Never wears a shirt. And makes it hard to remember all the things I learned at Christian Academy.

Did I mention he's also my new boss?

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

The Naked Fisherman  by Jewel E. Ann Book Video Kindle Crack

Eighteen-year-old Reece has lived a sheltered life, focusing on bible studies at a Christian academy. After graduation, Reese moved to Colorado to live with Rory, her mom, who was recently released from prison. Reese meets their half-dressed landlord, Fisher, and life will never be the same. She falls hard for Fisher, who is older, deliciously hot, and tempts her in ways that don't mirror her deeply religious beliefs. Inexperienced and naive, Reese questions her life and newly awaked desires and emotions. She often ponders what Jesus would do (WWJD)? Jewel takes us on an emotional journey of self-discovery, leaving us wondering what Reese will do? What will Fisher do?

This "just the tip" coming of age/new adult romance will have you hooked and emotionally invested in Reese and Fisher's relationship. The Naked Fisherman is equally passionate, fun, sexy, and sweet. Jewel left me wanting more with that cliffhanger ending. The Lost Fisherman (Fisherman Book #2) can't land on my Kindle fast enough. God-speed. You will catch the feels, and hopefully, Reese catches her Naked Fisherman.

Frayed by Laura Pavlov Book Cover image

My name is Adelaide Edington, and my life was mapped out for me before I even entered the world.

Who I'd date, where I’d attend college, what I'd be when I grew up.

But there comes a time in everyone's life when they face a fork in the road.

Should I go left, or should I go right?

It didn't matter as long as I didn't remain stagnant any longer.

Jett Stone opened me up to a whole new world.

Reminding me that it was okay to find my own way.

I could have roots in Willow Springs and still spread my wings and fly.

What I didn't expect was to fall in love with the broody football player.

The boy I’d known since kindergarten.

The boy who I wasn’t supposed to be with—but had somehow become my everything.

Review of Frayed

Frayed (Willow Springs, #1)Frayed by Laura Pavlov
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Frayed by Laura Pavlov video teaser Kindle Crack

I loved Frayed (Willow Springs #1) by Laura Pavlov. This small town, coming of age romance what I was craving: a great story, enjoyable characters, and not too heavy on the drama. Frayed was the perfect mix of sweet and heat. I’m really excited to read Tangled (Willow Springs #2). What a great start to the Willow Springs series. One-click worthy.
