Empyrean Series Book Club

Empyrean Series Book Club

You asked and I listened. You wanted an Empyrean Series Book Club, with in-depth discussions for dragons, and characters. Not only that, but you wanted a read along option on this site so we can discuss each chapter individually. I get it, it’s also super useful for finding Easter eggs and for discussing theories as we go.

This is also the perfect place to discuss things as they happen without further spoilers, making it an awesome option for those who want to be part of an active Empyrean Series book club.

To be part of the Empyrean Series Book Club, all you need to do is want to read the books together. From now on, I will post a new chapter discussion every single day. Please engage in the comments and send your ideas and details on what you loved more about that particular chapter. In doing so, we’re hopefully going to come up with even more theories and maybe even discover Violet’s second signet.

This series will continue once Book 3 is out as well.
