If you are anything like me, then you love collecting quotes. My Iron Flame book is practically full of small reading sticky notes colour coordinated with my favourite characters and quotes. And let’s face it, as much as I LOVE Violt, it’s actually Xaden Riorson that comes up with most gems. Maybe because he’s a really cool book boyfriend and his quotes give us all shivers.
Well, for people who love Iron Flame Quotes, I created this article which is a tribute to the series’ intricate storytelling, weaving together the profound, the poignant, and the profoundly magical.
For both ardent fans and those newly acquainted with its pages, these quotes serve as a reminder of why this series is simply the best in the romantasy world.
Prepare to revisit your favourite moments and rediscover the magic that is the Iron Flame series, one quote at a time.

You’re my gravity. Nothing in my world works without you.Violet, Chapter 58 Iron Flame by Rebecca Yarros
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, Chapter 58 Iron Flame by Rebecca Yarros
My heart only beats as long as yours does, and when you die, I’ll meet Malek at your side.Xaden, Chapter 36 Iron Flame by Rebecca Yarros

There’s nowhere in existence you could go that I wouldn’t find you, remember?Xaden, Chapter 36 Iron Flame by Rebecca Yarros

Love doesn’t even have the decency to die. It just transforms into abject miseryViolet, Chapter 2 Iron Flame by Rebecca Yarros
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, Chapter 2 Iron Flame by Rebecca Yarros
I do. I’m sorry if you expect me to do the noble thing. I warned you. I’m not sweet or soft or kind, and you fell anyway. This is what you get, Violet— me. The good, the bad, the unforgivable. All of it. I am yours.” His arm wraps around the small of my back, holding me steady and close. “You want to know something true? Something real? I love you. I’m in love with you. I have been since the night the snow fell in your hair and you kissed me for the first time. I’m grateful my life is tied to yours because it means I won’t have to face a day without you in it. My heart only beats as long as yours does, and when you die, I’ll meet Malek at your side. It’s a damned good thing that you love me, too, because you’re stuck with me in this life and every other that could possibly follow.Xaden, Chapter 36 Iron Flame by Rebecca Yarros

With trembling hands, I unfold the paper—and smile. Xaden Riorson wrote me a letter.Violet, Chapter 10 Iron Flame by Rebecca Yarros
“If you didn’t figure it out, you weren’t worthy of knowing.” She huffs. “I waited six hundred and fifty years to hatch. Waited until your eighteenth summer, when I heard our elders talk of a weakling daughter of their general, the girl forecasted to become the head of the scribes, and I knew. You would have the mind of a scribe and the heart of a rider. You would be mine.” She leans into my hand. “You are as unique as I am. We want the same things.”Violet and Andarna, Chapter 64 Iron Flame by Rebecca Yarros
“You couldn’t have known I would be a rider.”
“And yet, here we are.”
A thousand questions go through my head, none of which we have the time for, so I give her exactly what I wanted–to be seen for who and what she is.
“You are not a black dragon, or any of the six that we know of. You’re a seventh breed.”
“Yes.” Her eyes widen in excitement.”
“People are trying to kill you?” Jesinia’s brow knits.Violet and Jesinia, Chapter 11 Iron Flame by Rebecca Yarros
My gaze finds Xaden’s in under a second, and it’s not because he’s seated at the center of the table, or because he’s one of only two men dressed in black, or even because he’s turned around as if he sensed me coming—which he probably did. I locate him within a heartbeat because he’s the center of my gravityViolet, Chapter 41 Iron Flame by Rebecca Yarros
Who the fuck’s flight jacket are you wearing?Xaden, Chapter 27 Iron Flame by Rebecca Yarros
You still don’t trust me, and that’s all right. I told you I’m not in this for a battle. I’m winning the damned war. I’m a fucking fool for saying this, but when haven’t I been a fool when it comes to you?Xaden, Chapter 12 Iron Flame by Rebecca Yarros
I’m more than willing to let you burn me.Xaden, Chapter 12 Iron Flame by Rebecca Yarros
I meant what I said on the parapet. Even when I’m not with you, there’s only you.Xaden, Chapter 8 Iron Flame by Rebecca Yarros
I will happily watch Aretia burn to the fucking ground again if it means you live.Xaden, Chapter 36 Iron Flame by Rebecca Yarros
That trick you mentioned? You know, with the fingers?” A slow smile spreads across my face. Thanks.Violet, Chapter 49 Iron Flame by Rebecca Yarros
Home. Gods, he tastes like home.Violet, Chapter 12 Iron Flame by Rebecca Yarros

Tairn and Andarna, Chapter 38 Iron Flame by Rebecca Yarros
Violet, Dain and Maren, Chapter 43 Iron Flame by Rebecca Yarros
Xaden slides his hands beneath my thighs, then lifts me so we’re level as he lays expert claim to every line and recess of my mouth like this is the only time he’ll get. Like kissing me is more vital than his next breathViolet, Chapter 12 Iron Flame by Rebecca Yarros
Most generals dream of dying in service to their kingdom. But you know me better than that, my love. When I fall, it will be for one reason only: to protect our childrenLilith, Chapter 65 Iron Flame by Rebecca Yarros
