Fourth Wing is a NA fantasy book that has spicy and explicit scenes. All the scenes are consensual, so there is no need for any trigger warnings. The author does go into intimate details and I would say the book does have an appeal if you like romantic, steamy scenes.
However, the book isn’t just about the spicy scenes. It’s also highly praised for the incredible tension the author creates between characters. The descriptive scenes are well-written and engrossing, pulling readers into the story and keeping them hooked. The book is a blend of fantasy, romance, and tension that makes for an exciting read.
And if you are wondering, even the steamy scenes are great and detailed. I would personally say they are very well written.
As highlighted earlier, Yarros masterfully crafts numerous scenes filled with intimate tension between characters. The book is peppered with charged moments brimming with erotic undertones. This skilful build-up of anticipation is likely why her spicy and steamy scenes are so well-received. They serve as the perfect “YES moment” – the satisfying release that readers have been eagerly awaiting.
***Please note mild spoilers ahead***
