Welcome to the series of the Iron Flame Verdicts, where we discuss in detail previous Fourth Wing Theories and whether they are proven or disproven. The most read and commented on theory was Xaden is Inntinnsic. Please make sure to read my theory, which took me ages to formulate and gather proof for. So the question is, was I right?
Heads up, we’ve got spoilers for Iron Flame coming!
Just a little warning before you read on: there are big spoilers ahead. If you haven’t had the chance to dive into Iron Flame yet, you really should before you go any further. It’s not just a suggestion – it’s pretty essential if you want to fully enjoy the big reveal we’re about to discuss.
Here’s a theory that’s been causing a stir:
We’ve all been trying to figure out Xaden Riorson since book one, picking up little hints here and there. A thought started to grow in my mind – could Xaden actually be Inntinnsic? This suspicion came from paying really close attention to the story and seeing how Xaden seemed to connect with Violet on a level deeper than their dragons’ bond. It was like he knew her secret thoughts, which seemed like more than just emotional insight.
While some doubted, thinking it was just the dragons’ deep bond, I had a hunch there was something more. And how amazing would it be if Xaden could actually read minds?
Now, Iron Flame has landed, and it’s changed everything! That big guess we had about Xaden – it was absolutely right. He’s a mind reader, and that’s a fact. I didn’t think we’d find this out so soon, in the second book, but here we are, and it’s like an early Christmas present!
Think back to all those little moments we wondered about, where Xaden seemed to respond to Violet’s unspoken words. It turns out we were right on the money. It wasn’t just emotional intuition; he was literally hearing her silent thoughts. We’ve got you figured out, Xaden!
And Iron Flame has made it crystal clear. Xaden’s mind-reading isn’t just a clever plot device; it’s a genuine part of the story. That little theory we all toyed with? It’s now solid truth, and Xaden himself has confirmed it.
I’m over the moon to have been onto this, but it’s not just a personal victory. It’s a triumph for all of us who imagined this theory could be true. And to those who were sceptical – your doubts only made the conversation more exciting.
With Iron Flame now out, it’s clear that Xaden’s mind-reading is no mere speculation. It’s an actual, undeniable piece of the tale.
How does he do it? Does he have another ability? It turns out that his dragon Sgaeyl, once bonded with Xaden’s grandfather, might grant a second power or cause madness in a new rider. Xaden got lucky here…
Who else is in on his secret? It seems no one but Violet Sorrengail, who pieced some of it together and then got the confirmation straight from Xaden himself. The whole scene was quite touching, honestly. I’ve read it three times and can’t wait to go back for more. It was thrilling and quite the emotional rollercoaster.
But this isn’t where the story ends. With this new piece of the puzzle about Xaden’s abilities, what’s next for him? There’s so much to look forward to, and I’m keen to hear your thoughts!
