Why are you in love with Xaden?

    What made you fall in love with Xaden? Was it his looks or his attitude? It’s been ages since I’ve been so captivated by a character. For me, it was definitely Xaden’s attitude โ€“ his bad boy, mysterious vibe was so intriguing. I could vividly picture his confidence, his attitude, the air of mystery around him. It wasn’t just about how he looked, but how he carried himself that really drew me in. How about you? What was it about Xaden that caught your attention?

    I think I began to love him when he didn’t kill her at the tree after the meeting, teased her with sarcastic comments and makes the comment about “now get back to bed before your wing leader realises you’re out after curfew”.

    The chapter where Violet takes his advice about throwing daggers at Jack and Dain’s losing his shit but Xaden does a slight smile of approval + him challenging her on the mat and putting Dain in his place was A-MAZ-ING!

    After threshing when although annoyed at Violet (well-the-fuck-aware lol) he supports her against Dain and his shit. Team Xaden for sure!

    And when saves her from the cadets trying to kill her in her sleep and then has the balls to not only talk to but YELL at Tairn?!? Deal-fucking-sealed <3 haha

      Fun fact. When I picked up the book, I had NO idea what to expect. I was really bored, in a reading slump, cruising amazon and saw this book recommended to me. I thought. MEH. Fly or die, sounds interesting enough. Downloaded a sample, why the hell not.

      Well, as you can see it changed my life! Every bit of spare time I have, I dedicate to this book now.

      I was so hooked oh my God. And the tension between Violet and Xaden WOAH. I honestly did not expect spice, I didn’t know there will be any. And when they kissed, my heart! When they got together, WOAH! I wanted to scream haha

      I fell for him at the tree too. The author created such tension because while he was everywhere, she went on about her days without interacting with him like ALL the time. Perfect

        My cousin recommended it to me and I was intrigued at the HP x GOT x HG comparison + the fact she said it was the best fantasy series she’d read since HP and as a lover of books and owner of…*ahem* over 4000 HC books *cough* possibly more…๐Ÿ™ˆ? I thought “Ok, challenge accepted.”

        I bought it in September but with work didn’t get to start it until I was waiting at the airport for 4hrs to travel to see my cousin on Boxing Day. I was so captivated by this stage I almost missed seeing her arrive in the pick up zone because I was reading and hanging off every word while holding my suitcase! ๐Ÿ˜…๐Ÿคฃ

        Then on one of our lazy days I literally spent…14hrs? (Possibly more๐Ÿ˜…) reading the book straight and because I was up to right before the War Games when I was heading to the airport my cousin was like “ok here’s the digital version of the second book because you will not handle the flight and 2hr drive home at midnight if you finish the first book on the flight and cannot continue” and OH.MY.GOD she was right!!! Haha

        Now I’ve read both books twice in a matter of 3 weeks and I’ve got the itch to read them again (especially joining this group and talking quotes and theories! Haha)

        But I always thought Xaden had that sexy mystery to him from the beginning. There was a slight nervous energy about him at parapet for obvious reasons but for me? That subsided well before I think RY intended. He just had that edge that made him overbearingly intriguing and not at all terrifying haha

        I also stumbled on this book series, not knowing a thing about it or the author. It sounded fun and I had no clue that what I was in for. I am so obsessed with the story. I’m so heartbroken about waiting for the third book, but I’m hoping this group helps me keep my mind together. I can’t wait to re-read them knowing what I know now.

      100% the tree scene started it, but it was during the sparring match that I felt a change in their relationship. It seemed to me like he was trying to help her and not hurt her. Also, when he killed all those cadets in her room, boom I was in 100% for life. I love the way he loves her. He protects her, but lets her be herself and grow. He doesn’t hold her back and only encourages her to get stronger and be better. I love that so much! Although, I might be totally in love with Liam.

    Xaden is absolutely everything that a person can want to be like. Handsome looking. Great leadership skills. Confident, and he inspires confidence in others. Patient. Dependable. Calm when needed to be calm. Talented. Extremely thoughtful. Creative and resourceful. Neat and organized at all times. Well versed in his signet powers and he uses it at all the right times, so many times saving situations. Logical. Attentive. Reasonable. Responsible. And so much more.

    When one sees someone with so so so many good qualities and on top of that he’s also sexy looking, how can one not be in love?

      You should be his agent. Even if I didn’t know who Xaden is, I’d want to meet him right NOW!
