While reading Iron Flame, I came across many note-worthy quotes from the second book of the Emyprean series.

Many of these quotes were love quotes about Violet and Xaden’s relationship. However, there were plenty of quotes touching themes of strength, self-exploration, power, war, family and friendship.

These quotes stood out to me while reading Iron Flame, some resonated with me on a deeper level.

Just like my compilation of Fourth Wing quotes, these Iron Flame quotes are from my personal kindle highlights. No matter what the reasoning maybe for you to have stumbled upon this post, I hope you find these quotes helpful.

Iron Flame physical copy has 623 pages while the Kindle edition has 884 pages. Since I read the book on my Kindle, the page numbers will align with the Kindle pages.

Violet Sorrengail Quotes from Iron Flame (With Page Numbers)

Revolution tastes oddly…sweet.

Violet Sorrengail, Iron Flame, (Page 14)

Sometime in our past, one generation of Navarrians wiped the history books, erasing the existence of venin from common education and knowledge, all because we aren’t willing to risk our own safety by providing the one material that can kill dark wielders—the same alloy that powers the farthest reaches of our wards.

Violet Sorrengail, Iron Flame, (Page 32)

Turns out, falling in love with someone only brings that blissful high all the poets talk about if they love you back. And if they keep secrets that jeopardize everyone and everything you hold dear? Love doesn’t even have the decency to die. It just transforms into abject misery. That’s what this ache in my chest is: misery.

Violet Sorrengail, Iron Flame, (Page 35)

Because love, at its root, is hope. Hope for tomorrow. Hope for what could be. Hope that the someone you’ve entrusted your everything to will cradle and protect it. And hope? That shit is harder to kill than a dragon.

Violet Sorrengail, Iron Flame, (Page 36)

Gods, I’m so sick of having to make the first move when it comes to this man.

Violet Sorrengail, Iron Flame, (Page 264)

“Sure, as long as you can keep your secrets. Has it ever occurred to you that this”—I gesture between us—“is all because you don’t trust me?” I take a step backward. “You expect complete, blind faith without giving it. It. Goes. Both. Ways.”

Violet Sorrengail, Iron Flame, (Page 264)

“One touch, that’s all it takes, and the world around us ceases to exist.”

Violet Sorrengail, Iron Flame, (Page 281)

Violet Sorrengail, Iron Flame, (Page 526)

It’s the only time my power is beauty without destruction—without violence.

Violet Sorrengail, Iron Flame, (Page 677)

Violet Sorrengail, Iron Flame, (Page 762)

Almost everyone in my life has kept secrets from me because I didn’t ask the right questions, didn’t look further than face value, and I understand that there will be times you can’t tell me everything—that’s the nature of what we do as riders—but I need you to stop setting me up for failure by insisting I figure out what there is to ask.”

Violet Sorrengail, Iron Flame, (Page 769)

“I love you,” I whisper. “You could throw my entire world into upheaval, and I would still love you. You could keep secrets, run a revolution, frustrate the shit out of me, probably ruin me, and I would still love you. I can’t make it stop. I don’t want to. You’re my gravity. Nothing in my world works without you.”

Violet Sorrengail, Iron Flame, (Page 770)

iron flame quotes with page numbers

“Violet!” Mom shouts. “Listen to me!” I yell right back. “For once in your life, listen to what I’m telling you!” She draws her head back. I forge on. “For once in my life, trust me. Have faith in me. I can get the wards up.”
