Dreadgod (Cradle Book 11) Kindle Edition
The battle in the heavens has left a target on Lindon’s back.
His most reliable ally is gone, the Monarchs see him as a threat, and he has inherited one of the most valuable facilities in the world. At any moment, his enemies could band together to kill him.
If it weren’t for the Dreadgods.
All four are empowered and unleashed, rampaging through Cradle, and grudges old and new must be set aside. The Monarchs need every capable fighter to help them defend their territory.
And Lindon needs time.
While he fights, he sends his friends off to train. They’ll need to advance impossibly fast if they want to join him in battle against the kings and queens of Cradle.
Together, they will need power enough to rival a Dreadgod.

Lindon went from an "Unsouled" bowing before Coppers to being known worldwide for battling Dreadgods.
I look forward to the Epic Conclusion in Book 12 (coming soon, I hope....).
Part of the novel is Lindon coming to terms with his Labyrinth powers and getting his team to spread out to collect materials for them to advance. Next is a heist montage where Lindon and Yerrin have escapades. My favorite of which was with robbing Shen's bank while the 8-Man Empire chooses to fail to intervene.
Lastly they have to go get Mercy. Akura Malice had been attempting to poison Mercy on Lindon. The soul oath Lindon was forced to swear previously prevents him from telling Mercy (and almost kills him when he tells Charity whom he assumed knew). Fortunately Red Sage tells Yerrin, and during the Heist segment, she uses the Dreamway to tell THE WORLD that the monarchs are responsible for the Dreadgods. Not everyone hears, but Mercy does, which sets the stage for the final conflict: Lindon and Yerrin vs Akura Malice.
Big fight, Malice throws Mercy in a pocket world and locks her inside, but Mercy manages to unlock it by using her books final page (temporarily). She gets injured and Pride says they can help her, but Lindon says he's got it and takes her home, telling Pride that he hopes they are allies when next they meet.
Lindon and team: Yerrin, Mercy, Ziel, Orthos, Little Blue, and Dross end the book together and walking into a pocket world in Lindon's closet so they can have a Hyperbolic Time Chamber experience and level up to face down the rest of the Dreadgods and Monarchs.
Having killed and consumed the Silent King and enraged the other Monarchs (other than Emriss Silentborn), Lindon has had to fast track his plan to kill the other Dreadgods and force the Monarchs to ascend.
I'm curious if the book will open with a time jump or a montage of the training.
And we still have the Abidan situation: Makiel left Suriel and Ozriel to die before the Mad King, predicting that Ozriel was likely to die and Suriel to live, at least 60% of the time...
If both Ozriel and Suriel live, Makiel will be brought to trial for his naughtiness and sentenced to mortality in his home world.
Now, to actually talk about Dreadgod... It was amazing. If you've enjoyed the rest of the series, you will most likely enjoy this one. It is very fast paced with a majority of the book being very high stakes, and lots of excellent battle scenes. We get some new perspectives, with characters such as the sage of red faith getting fleshed out a little more, and we especially get way more information on the silent king and see him from multiple different perspectives which do a good job in making fighting him feel just as terrifying as the bleeding phoenix or wandering Titan (maybe even scarier depending on the individual). As is the case with most of the series, there is a healthy dose of advancement as the main crew has to get to a level where they can hold their own with monarchs and dreadgods, although for some of the team it's more just set up for advancement that will hypothetically happen in the final book.
Things that I think could be considered as potential negatives:
Because it's so fast paced, there's basically no time for slice of life. There's small breathers throughout, but even those still serve to push the plot forward.
Some of the advancements that do happen felt a little rushed. There's a couple that even felt semi-off-screen in the sense that you see the set up for the advancement, and then you see the powered up version afterwards, so it's clear the advancement happened, but there isn't any time spent on it actually happening.
Because we're getting into the realm of sages and heralds and monarchs and dreadgods where things become more conceptual, it feels like there's slightly more "hand-waviness" when it comes to power level. This serves to help make the fights more epic, but at the cost of making them feel less grounded.
It's the penultimate book, so there's still a lot of unresolved questions left for the final book, as well as a slight cliffhanger.
Overall, it's an amazing book and a fantastic entry for the series. As with any book, there's some choices made by the author that will appeal more to some readers than others, but I think that anyone who has made it this far into the series will find plenty of enjoyment and satisfaction.

I should have had more faith.
It’s been a long series but it still managed to find way to keep me glued to the page and surprise me. We’re really coming into the endgame now and much of the characters, locations and events we need to know about have appeared. Though it’s really impressive that new stuff can still crop up 11 books into the series.
The problem with this series is that it’s been written to such a high standard that it’s difficult to say things about the newest book that I haven’t said about previous ones, at least without spoiling it. And I really don’t want to do that because you have to read this for yourselves. If you’ve got this far then you know everything this book will contain, from epic moments, to fantastic fights to good characters and an enchanting world. And if you’re reading this having not read any of the others, wondering if it’s worth starting the series then yes, it absolutely is.
Unfortunately it looks like the next book, Waybound, will be the last one. But what a series this has been!
Amazing characters, an unbelievable world and some gargantuan powers. I might take the opportunity to read this book again immediately after finishing.
I don’t wanna give too much away because if you’ve gotten to this point then you’ve read the other books so you probably don’t need a review to get you to read it anyway.
Still, it’s probably the best thing you will do all year.
I really, really hope the next book is twice as long as usual, so it doesn't feel like its is rushed or any loose ends have been left. As that has often IMO let down amazing series in the past for me.
