Cory the creator of Empyrean Riders

Hello! I’m Cory, a devoted superfan of the Fourth Wing, Iron Flame and the whole Empyrean Series. I am the sole creator of this site. I live in England, a place known for its love of good books and a fine cup of tea – two passions I wholeheartedly share.

Books have always been a significant part of my life, but Fourth Wing and Iron Flame hold a special place in my heart. Fourth Wing is my favourite book, and it’s captivated me to such an extent that I’ve put all other reading on hold to delve deeper into its rich, intricate world. Each read-through uncovers new layers of information, new theories to explore, and new details to appreciate.

I find joy and inspiration in a garden full of flowers, a well-brewed cup of tea, and the boundless worlds contained within the pages of books. My dream is to open a coffee shop one day, a haven where people can enjoy a variety of coffees and teas, surrounded by lush plants and a wealth of books.

For the past seven years, I’ve been a writer and photographer, exploring the world and capturing its beauty through words and images. This site is a passion project, born out of my love for the Empyrean Series and my enjoyment of writing for pleasure in my spare time.

With a Bachelor’s degree in Law, my academic background might seem far removed from the realm of fantasy literature. However, it’s this legal education that has honed my attention to detail and fostered a passion for fact-based analysis – skills that I believe enrich the content of this site. I’ve created this space to share my insights and theories about the Empyrean series, and to engage with fellow fans as the series progresses.

I invite you to join me on this journey. Let’s explore the world of Empyrean together, uncover its secrets, and share our theories. I look forward to hearing your thoughts and ideas as we delve deeper into the captivating universe created by Rebecca Yarros.

  1. Far reach, but could there be “good” Venin that can control the pull of the “dark side”?

    1. Hi Linda. So i’m toying with this idea myself. In any story, there is usually a good, a bad, a morally grey. Then there is the good that gets corrupted (and turns bad) and then there is bad that is sick of being bad (and becomes either morally grey or good as an act of redemption). So, totally possible!

      1. Two thoughts: First, I notice Andarna reiterates in both books that she will “go where I am needed”. Perhaps the author is foreshadowing Andarna’s capability to see into the future or some other time related trait that may involve Violet’s second signet. Coming off rock formation near the end of Iron Flame, she tells Violet “I told you I could hide”. Perhaps Andarna’s purple scales could have a very helpful chameleon-like camouflage ability.

        Regarding Xaden’s transformation, he has power and is turning into an evil power seeker. However, he has rediscovered love and may end up once again, leading a rebellion–in venin land. Who knows?

        1. Ugh! So hard, right? But I do feel like Andarna will be the most important dragon…

          1. I feel the same way. She says she will go where she is needed and as she develops she will become the most important dragon. I love Andarna!

  2. Hi, omg your website is great! I love Fourth Wing! My dream is to move to England (I live in Austria) and be an author. I love England. I‘m 16 years old btw. What is your book‘s name or what do you write? Sometimes I just want to write Fourth Wing in my version where (Spoiler!) Liam lives. It is so tragic and heartbreaking. Honestly, in Fourth Wing I didn’t cry about him. I never cry about a character’s death (except Finnick and Prim from The hunger games and a children’s book character), but in Iron Flame… This one scene. I can’t 😭
    Best wishes,


    1. Hi Anna, I think you should start writing! And you should create a fan fic where Liam lives. I would love to read it and share it here if you’d like. Xaden should be a religion haha <3
