Brief Summary of Book Iron Flame (The Empyrean, 2) by Rebecca Yarros

“The first year is when some of us lose our lives. The second year is when the rest of us lose our humanity.” — Xaden Riorson

Anticipated by all, including Violet Sorrengail herself, was the grim expectation that she would not survive her first year at Basgiath War College—a grueling test known as Threshing, designed to separate the weak-willed, unworthy, and unfortunate.

Now, the true training commences, and Violet faces the daunting challenge of enduring it all. The brutality and maliciousness are only the beginning, as the riders’ endurance is pushed beyond its limits. But it’s not just the intense training that threatens Violet; the new vice commandant is determined to demonstrate her powerlessness—unless she betrays the man she loves.

Despite her physical fragility, Violet’s wits and unyielding determination remain her strengths. She possesses a will of iron, and Basgiath’s most important lesson echoes within her: Dragon riders create their own destinies.

However, sheer determination alone may not suffice this year, as Violet holds a hidden knowledge—a secret kept concealed for centuries at Basgiath War College. In the face of challenges, even dragon fire may prove insufficient to save them all.

In this enthralling tale, the journey through Basgiath War College unfolds, fraught with danger, intrigue, and the essence of what it means to be a dragon rider. Violet’s resilience and unyielding spirit offer hope amidst the shadows that shroud the academy. As the stakes rise, she must navigate treacherous waters, making choices that could define the fate of herself and those around her.
