Fourth Wing Summary  

Fourth Wing introduces us to Violet Sorrengail, a twenty-year-old girl with not the best health history.

Violet was destined to live a peaceful life engrossed in books and history, but then her mother, the commanding general, forces her into the intense competition to become a dragon rider; the prestigious elite of Navarre.

In a realm where dragons bond only with the strongest humans, Violet’s fragility puts her life in constant jeopardy. Due to her apparent vulnerability and her relationship with her tough mother, Violet’s survival is far from guaranteed in a world where aspiring dragon riders are willing to destroy their rivals.

Xaden Riorson, the vicious wingleader of the Fourth Wing in the Riders Quadrant, is one of the fierce competitors and a serious threat to Violet. He’ll do whatever it takes to get her out of his way. 

To navigate this treacherous path, Violet must rely on her wits to outmaneuver her adversaries and secure her place in the dragon rider program. She may not be the strongest, but she is one of the smartest!
