5/5 Stars
Note: All the reviews on my blog are written for the sole purpose of sharing my experience and enjoyment of the books reviewed.  My first language is not English so please forgive the multiple errors in grammar. : )
This is one book experience I debated wether or not to write here in the blog for the simple reason that I am so in love with this book I am suddenly self conscious of the fact that my English grammar sucks and this book doesn't deserve it when writing about it. Still after careful consideration my need to talk about it won over my bad grammar so please forgive me, but this book was soooooo good. The hype is very real and deserved. I have not felt this way about a book since I started reading again in 2020 after a whole decade of barely reading any books. From Blood and Ash was the book that got me back into reading and my obsession for that series has not been matched by any other book until now, until this masterpiece written by Rebecca Yarros. 
My knowledge of this author was non until Fourth Wing started to become popular on Tik Tok, like many others, I was enamored by the gorgeous hardcover and black edges with dragons and like any respectable book addict I immediately went to purchase the book even though I still have about 200 unread books to get to. Once I started to read it I could tell this author's writing style agreed with me. The reason for it being that while I love fantasy and fantasy romance books sometimes the world building and dialogue can be a bit rough to get into and I had previous experiences were I did not enjoyed reading it even if the story was actually very good but I just felt somehow mentally tired. Not the case here at all. Learning about this world and it's characters was addicting.  I did not feel at any point bored while reading. I genuinely felt like I was watching a movie or TV show, the kind that are so good you don't even want to take a bathroom break.
Another plus for the book is the characters. We get a female main character who is humble, determined and a fighter in many ways. A male main character who while  at the beginning might not be your favorite person, eventually you will end up loving and it is not the type of male character that at some point you might think is a little toxic, on the contrary, he plays a big role in not only the romance on the story but of the evolution of our female lead and helping her reach her power and confidence without taking credit for it.  And the dragons, man I swear that is the best part, so many dragons. The story is perfectly structured and you will be entertained all along.
This book has become so wildly popular that is has become a hard find but it is also available on kindle format. I will leave the link as well as the book blurb from Amazon below.
Fourth Wing ( The Empyrean #1) by Rebecca Yarros
Twenty-year-old Violet Sorrengail was supposed to enter the Scribe Quadrant, living a quiet life among books and history. Now, the commanding general—also known as her tough-as-talons mother—has ordered Violet to join the hundreds of candidates striving to become the elite of Navarre: dragon riders.

But when you’re smaller than everyone else and your body is brittle, death is only a heartbeat away...because dragons don’t bond to “fragile” humans. They incinerate them.

With fewer dragons willing to bond than cadets, most would kill Violet to better their own chances of success. The rest would kill her just for being her mother’s daughter—like Xaden Riorson, the most powerful and ruthless wingleader in the Riders Quadrant.

She’ll need every edge her wits can give her just to see the next sunrise.

Yet, with every day that passes, the war outside grows more deadly, the kingdom's protective wards are failing, and the death toll continues to rise. Even worse, Violet begins to suspect leadership is hiding a terrible secret.

Friends, enemies, lovers. Everyone at Basgiath War College has an agenda—because once you enter, there are only two ways out:
graduate or die.
