1. "Fourth Wing"
Meant to become a scribe, Violet is being forced to train as a dragon rider—a perilous enterprise. Beware of the other cadets and the dragons that might burn you instead of bond! With a fragile body but courageous soul, she’ll venture in this life-threatening adventure in the mist of a war with enemies inside and outside, and a challenge involving her heart.
- Violet Sorrengail—daughter of the director of Basqiath, the military academy.
- Xaden Riorson—enemy of the Sorrengail’s and powerful leader and dragon rider.
- Dain Aetos—Violet’s childhood friend and possible ally
- Liam Mairi—Violet’s bodyguard
- Andarna—the funniest and coolest of dragons
- Jack Barlowe—the academy bully and Violet’s most outspoken enemy
This book focuses mainly in Violet’s personal journey and challenges through her first year in Basgiath.
2. "Iron Flame"
Violet has survived her first year in Basgiath. Body strengthened, obstacles overcome, dragon bonded… She even fell for her ‘enemy.’ But more secrets are revealed, and new enemies surround her—the cost of fighting in the right side of the battle. Only her wit, inner strength and determination might help this time.
Crucial Supporting Roles:
- Violet’s Squad—her fellow cadets, allies and friends
- The Sorrengail Family—they will all play their part in here
- Major Varrish—Violet’s new and vindictive enemy
- Tairn and Andarna—our beloved dragon representation
The conflict has now spread outside Basgiath’s walls and the battles are getting more realistic by the minute. We reach new levels of tension.
