  • Author: Rebecca Yarros

Twenty-year-old Violet Sorrengail was expected to join the Scribe Quadrant, leading a peaceful life surrounded by books and history. However, her mother, the formidable commanding general, has instead ordered her to join the ranks of candidates competing to become Navarre's elite dragon riders.

Being smaller than her peers and physically fragile, Violet faces constant danger. Dragons do not bond with weak humans; they burn them alive.

With a shortage of dragons willing to bond, many cadets are willing to kill Violet to increase their chances of success. Others want her dead simply because she is the commanding general's daughter, especially Xaden Riorson, the most powerful and merciless wingleader in the Riders Quadrant.

Violet must rely on her cleverness to survive each day.

As the days pass, the war outside intensifies, the kingdom's protective wards weaken, and the number of casualties rises. Violet begins to suspect that the leadership is concealing a dreadful secret.

At Basgiath War College, everyone has their own agenda—whether friend, enemy, or lover—because once you enter, there are only two ways out: graduate or die.


How Did Fourth Wing End?

At the end of Fourth Wing, Violet Sorrengail uncovers the truth about the leadership's dark secret. She learns that the kingdom's protective wards are failing because the leadership has been manipulating the dragon riders and their dragons for their own gain, hiding the true extent of the kingdom's vulnerability.

During the climactic battle, Violet fights bravely alongside her bonded dragon, using her intelligence and determination to survive against overwhelming odds. Despite the many challenges and betrayals she faces, she manages to expose the corruption within the leadership, rallying her fellow cadets and dragons to take a stand against the true enemy threatening their kingdom.

In the final scenes, Violet and her allies confront the corrupt leaders, but the battle comes at a great cost. Many lives are lost, and Violet is left to grapple with the consequences of her discoveries. The ending sets the stage for further conflict and resolution, leaving Violet's future and the fate of the kingdom hanging in the balance, paving the way for the next installment in the series.

Despite her physical frailties, Violet's sharp intellect and unyielding will remain her greatest assets.
