I wasn’t ready for how emotional Iron Flame was going to make me

Boy did I somehow not expect to be hit right in the feels almost immediately after starting Iron Flame by Rebecca Yarros. Violet reminiscing about the death of someone very close to her from the previous book, Fourth Wing, had me feeling the pain of it all over again and NO THOSE ARE NOT TEARS IN MY EYES RIGHT NOW. Seriously though, every time I thought I was passed the agony, the book just tried to break me all over again which added up to me being an emotional wreck right from the start.
