Rebecca Yarros is currently worth approximately $1.5 million. Her successful journey into the fantasy genre with ‘Fourth Wing,’ part of The Empyrean series, has been a pivotal point in her career. This book alone sold over 2 million copies worldwide and contributed significantly to her financial success and status as a millionaire.

With the release of Fourth Wing’s first installment in April 2023, the novel introduced readers to the world of Violet Sorrengail, a 20-year-old aspiring to become a dragon rider. The book not only became a viral sensation on TikTok but also set the stage for a new and exciting series that captivated a global audience. It also became a bestselling novel on Amazon,, the New York Times, and USA Today.

Following the success of Fourth Wing, Yarros released ‘Iron Flame’ in November 2023, continuing the adventurous saga of Violet Sorrengail. Her storytelling prowess and the intricate world-building seen in The Empyrean series have garnered a dedicated following, eagerly awaiting each new installment.

The anticipation is building for the third novel in The Empyrean series, ‘Onyx Storm,’ which Yarros announced would be released on January 21, 2025. In a reveal to Good Morning America, she teased fans with promises of politics, new adventures, old enemies, and, intriguingly, dragons. This forthcoming book promises to add another captivating chapter to the series.

She said,

“Good Morning America! I’m excited to finally announce that the third book in The Empyrean series will be released January 21, 2025. I can’t tell you much yet, but I can tell you the title: ‘Onyx Storm.'”

Moreover, the development of The Empyrean series by MGM Amazon Studios, in collaboration with Michael B. Jordan’s Outlier Society, indicates the significant impact and potential of Yarros’s work beyond the realm of literature. This adaptation could introduce her stories to a broader audience, further elevating her status as an author.

In 2014, her novel Full Measures was nominated for the Goodreads Choice Award for Debut Goodreads Author. In 2019, The Last Letter was recognized by Kirkus Reviews as one of the year’s best books, further solidifying her reputation as a noteworthy author.

She began her writing career while her husband was deployed in Afghanistan, turning to storytelling as a means of expression and perhaps as a solace during a difficult time. Rebecca and her husband are parents to six children.
