Series Sunday: Iron Flame

(The Empyrean #2) 

Series Sunday is a bookish meme hosted by Literary Marie. I encourage all of my fellow book bloggers and bookhearts to play along.
  • Read an installment of a series.
  • Share your review/recommendation below.
  • Include the title, author and series name.

My Series Sunday pick is Iron Flame, the second book in the Empyrean series by Rebecca Yarros. No one expected Violet Sorrengail to make it past Threshing yet here she is second year at Basgiath War College. It is full of pain, a test of endurance and a fight for power. Violet's body may be frail but her wit and will of iron is unmatched.

"Magic requires balance." ~ pg. 564

Does a book make you call off work for a bereavement day? Does a book cause you angst? What book has you giving a knowing nod to strangers when you see them reading it in public? Does a book make you literally throw it across the room then leave it sitting overnight? Only to wake up, be reminded of its ending and step over it? IRON MUTHAF'N FLAME! 

I was not into fantasy before The Empyrean series but I am oh so glad to be here. If I thought I loved me some dragons before, they are my spirit animals now. Once again, Rebecca Yarros had me saying fuck bedtime to read until the wee hours. I jumped down rabbit holes for hours on BookTok to find fellow readers and watch reaction videos. I discussed this book with any and everybody both online and IRL! My head is still swirling with reactions and theories.

Just like Fourth Wing, instead of me saying more, I am going to share my live updates and favorite quotes of Iron Flame then let you decide whether it is worth adding to your TBR. I will be waiting here to welcome you aboard The Empyrean fly or die skies. And best believe, I pre-ordered the special edition of The Empyrean book 3 titled Onyx Storm expected to be published 01.21.2025.
