I’m going to need you to please help me with this one. Dust off your Fourth Wing book and come on a wild journey with me. I think I discovered something really odd in Fourth Wing and I’m not sure if this is real or a mistake. I have this feeling that Rebecca Yarros doesn’t actually make mistakes. I’m pretty sure, actually. What looks like a mistake is very much intentional, and it’s there to throw us off. This? This is BIG because it involves Liam. Did I get you? Yeah, me too…I’m still not happy that Liam is gone but I have this feeli …

I 100% have thought about this too! Knowing how much his mom was well versed in runes it would only make sense Liam was taught more about them. He always kept wood on him for the carvings, but maybe to also make runes too. I wonder if he put runes in the dragon carvings too? Maybe something to protect his friends! There is definitely more to learn about Liam that’s for sure!
This is brilliant!
Hear me out because the ice welding confused me unless it’s a lesser magic & different from Ridoc’s signet. In IF when Xaden is tellin Vi about the significance of the protection runes Liam’s Mom created & says
“It was designed to COUNTER the signet of the rider whose dragon would kill them.” He swallows. “But it could only activate when killed by dragonfire.”
I took this as his Liam’s far sight is actually tied to Melgren’s ability to see the outcomes of battles since his dragon was the one who burned the parents which would also align with the marked ones having mind-related signets in some form. We still don’t know Garrick’s & know Bodhi can flat out counter signets. This also makes me wonder if Xaden will actually have another signet…..so 3 total.
Understandable I was looking at it as a verb “ to defend yourself against something” vs actually countering something. I looked up in FW ice wielding is one of the more common signets, so was that an error on the authors part or do the marked ones have additional signets?!
Somehow Sloane knows that riders who bond dragons in family lines get two signets. Violet learns that information from here. So how would Sloane knows but Violet, our clever girl don’t. So I think as with Xedan that was happening with Liam. He bonded a dragon in his family line an so he got a secound signet, witch he diden’t told anyone but then uses in the battle in Resson. Violet herself said when she finds out about Xadens secound signet, that if it would be an element wilding signet it would have been seen in Resson. So back to Sloane, I thinke she knew because Liam told her in his letters, that he has two signets. I think we will learn much more aout Liam trough the letters he wrote to Sloane.
