Every fortnight, the girls of Margin will be reviewing a new book that's available at our Frances Compton Library. This week, Emily raves about TikTok sensation Fourth Wing by Rebecca Yarros.
Review by Emily Innes
I loved this book – so much so I read it in only two days.
The slow-burn romance was perfect. Just when you think it's getting to that point that all romance books have -- the point when the two love interests are finally going to realise how much they want each other, it hits you with a twist, and the twists are good. The whole book is never dull and it's one that will keep you reading until the sun rises. It's not even wholly romance too – most of the book is just leading up to the romance and the climax; aside from romance, there's the building and breaking of friendships, family drama, inner turmoil on who actually to trust, and questioning and assurance of her worth, and more. However, I did find reading different dragon names difficult, which resulted in a bit of confusion for me personally in the world-building and understanding of dragon aspects. Other than that minuscule detail, this book was the best I've read in a long time.
