    Gods, I nearly had a heart attack when I finished the last few pages of Iron Flame. Luckily my sanity remains intact so I can talk about it with you guys.

    What do you guys think?

    I have to say he did the right thing. I hate him for doing it, but if you look at it from his perspective he really didn’t have a choice. It was either he does reach, or their world as they know it ends. He kept Violet safe, even if it meant by corrupting his own soul for her sake. If that is not true love, then I don’t know what is.

    NO. Ok, fine, yes. Anything for love. I just read Cory’s theory about the Gods and now I totally see why the author turned Xaden into venin.

    Do I love him for it? No. But the way I see it:

    1) He could have accepted his death. But that doesn’t mean Violet would have been saved. The venin general could have killed her just as well.

    2) He turns because venin general tells him that otherwise she dies. Fine. This way, he sacrifices himself and kills venin general (bottom of ravine, come on, we all know that guy ain’t dead!) and saves Violet in the process. Like he sees the job done.

    I’m quick to judge but I think Xaden did the right thing.

      Well said! Just read the theory as well. I totally agree. He didn’t have to turn venin to save her indeed. But at least it will add a great amount of tension to the next book.
