Spoiler Warning! Calling all Iron Flame fans – if you haven’t finished the book, this article is chock-full of spoilers!
Exploring the Theory:
Signets are the magical abilities that are the resulting bond of riders and dragons. But here’s the burning question: Are there more signets out there than we initially thought?
- Chapter 4, Page 6: Jack dismisses the idea of precognition. But is this just a lack of knowledge?
- Chapter 8, Page 97: The belief that no signet can resurrect the dead. But what about other unknown powers?
The Revealing Verdict:
Buckle up, because the truth is a game-changer: there are indeed more signets in the Iron Flame universe than we were initially led to believe! This isn’t just a theory; it’s a fact that’s gradually unveiled throughout the story.
We’re introduced to characters with unique and previously unheard-of signets. Bodhi, for instance, possesses the ability to counter other signets. Then there’s Varrish, who can see weaknesses – a pretty horrible power. And let’s not forget the truth sayers, adding another to the signet spectrum.
But wait, there’s more! The revelation of fliers and their distinct lesser magic and mind work. We learn about characters like Catriona, who can amplify emotions. Not signets tho, but still…powerful enough to hold their own.
Is there more? I think so. If you read my Iron Flame theory that Andarna knows how to kill venin, you will quickly realise that we are circling back to precognition. After all, she was left behind with a reason (to serve in the future). And is there no signet to bring back the dead? Maybe not per se, but given that we need to mend the souls of venin, it might be that such a signet (or combination of signets) exists.
What This Means:
There are more signets indeed! This theory was proven.
The introduction of these new signets also opens up a world of possibilities for future storylines. It hints at a vast, unexplored realm of powers, some of which might have implications far beyond what the characters – and readers – have imagined so far. Precognition? Resurrection? It doesn’t feel as far fetched anymore.
In short, the world of Iron Flame just got a whole lot bigger and more exciting. With the discovery of these new signets, we’re left wondering: what other secrets are waiting to be uncovered in this enchanting and ever-evolving world? Book 3 can’t come fast enough…
