Iron Flame by Rebecca Yarros
Discover the instant #1 New York Times bestseller!!
Violet Sorrengail defied all expectations when she survived her first year at Basgiath War College, including her own doubts. The initial trial, known as Threshing, aimed to eliminate the weak, unworthy, and unlucky.
Now, the true training commences, and Violet faces the daunting challenge ahead. The intensity is not only grueling and mercilessly brutal but also intentionally designed to push the riders to withstand unimaginable pain. Adding to the struggle is the new vice commandant, who is determined to demonstrate Violet’s powerlessness unless she betrays the man she loves.
Despite Violet’s physically weaker and more fragile form compared to her peers, she possesses sharp intellect and indomitable will. She has learned a crucial lesson at Basgiath: Dragon riders forge their path.
However, survival instincts alone won’t suffice this year.
Violet holds knowledge of a long-hidden secret, guarded for centuries within Basgiath War College. In the face of impending danger, even the might of dragon fire may prove insufficient to secure their ultimate salvation.
