Stylistically, I feel like it's closest to the very first book, with Lindon spending a considerable amount of time exploring and learning about a part of the world virtually on his own. This style has advantages and disadvantages, but most importantly it means that he doesn't have the benefit of powerful allies that can intervene and save him at any moment. This lends a real element of risk and tension to the book, and that helps to allow Lindon to grow.
We also get some great moments with other characters, including some much needed development for Mercy and my personal favorite Cradle character, Yerin.
All in all, it's a great book and I strongly recommend it.
Although if you are looking at book 5, I am sure you know what I am talking about.
We start off shortly after where book 4 left off, with Lindon and Yerin being used and scrutinized by the Skysworn. They are taken by their 2 guards off on a special mission that should keep them out of the public eye for a while, since the empire is still trying to keep panic down after the Bleeding Phoenix has made it's appearance, and Lindon's Blackflame path is getting stronger. They are taken to the titular Ghostwaters research facility, created by the Northstrider, to attempt to salvage whatever they can from this crumbling facility that is essentially a underwater pocket world made into a lab. Immediately upon arrival they are greeted by a open doorway they do not expect, and Lindon is taken in with his Skysworn guard while Yerin remains outside along with Mercy and their guard.
Once inside things kick off to a startling and bloody beginning that as usual does not bode well for Lindon's survival. He survives and manages to stumble on a building with what appears to be trash only, and behaving in his usual fashion, manages to make some startling discoveries.
I wont describe more of the story from here on out because you really owe it to yourself to read the book. What I will say is that this book takes Lindon on an amazing path, and the ending is surprising and satisfying. Yerin also does advance but this story is very much Lindon centric, so her part is much smaller, and focuses on her efforts to try to save Lindon. Mercy, meanwhile, being new to the group I suppose, is somewhat relegated to a curious but mostly sideline part.
I've started to re-read the book already to soak it in, but if you felt satisfaction in book 2 when he gets his bloodforged body, or book 3 as he advances his Blackflame path in the testing grounds, you will really like this story.
The introduction of new allies along with new enemies made along the way also set up great plot line for future novels as the deadline Lindon faces grows steadily closer whilst the powerful all begin plans for a new competition between them that can cost thousands their lives
If I may mention my only dislike about the book, its pretty simple. Two certain characters despite having a somewhat important focus in the previous book are basically shoved into a dark closet and are basically rarely mentioned for the rest of the Volume. This irks me because... well it’s hard to say without spoilers but it’s strange how abruptly they both leave the plot.
However that is only a minor flaw in my eyes. If you are a fan of the series read this book. If you’ve never heard of this series before in your life read the previous ones and then read this book. If you are like me and believe Orthos is the one true god, read this.
Compelling story, great character growth and development, and twists that make you go WOW.
If you picked up just this book, go read the ones before it.
If you are caught up except for this one, well what are you waiting for?!
If you are all caught up, including this book, wanna help me kidnap the author and keep him locked in a bedroom so he can just keep writing? And we can read the books as he finishes the chapters! No bashing feet with sledge hammers, promise!
Also, there's something new and amusing at the end for a little extra value.

On another topic Amazon are really failing customers as I have Will followed and not only did I not receive notification of this book, or have it show up in my recommended list, but the book is not even linked to his author page or the Cradle series...shocking stuff.
There are now new threats to the party due to Lindon's direct actions. But, we get Dross who is the complete antithesis of its name sake and its amazing.
