A lot of incidents occur in this book and they seemed rushed. Lindon's development seems halted (even though his growth will be picked up in the following books) while Yerin continues to be awesome as usual (but isn't fleshed out as well int his book as with the previous books). I think Will Wight could have gotten away with another 50 or so pages to tell the same story but giving it a little more time to develop while allowing himself more space/time to flesh everything out.
All in all, I'd say this was the weakest book in the series so far but that won't stop me from buying the next as soon as it's out. I appreciate what the author is doing. It's not easy being a fan and waiting years for the followup book in a series and the author understands this based on the fact that Will has managed about 2 or so books in this series every year. I appreciate that and look forward to continuing this journey with Lindon and the rest of the team. I hope the coming books as just as good if not better than the first 3. I re-read those recently and am still amazed by them (the second book in the series is probably my favorite).
Thank you Will for bringing us along on this journey :-D
The fight sequence between Jai Long and Lindon which was meticulously built up is wasted, being both utterly confusing, and completely anticlimactic. This is definitely a theme, as the book piles more on us without really explaining what the hell is going on, keeping a fast, confusing pace.
What we end with is a book that was awkwardly realized, and leaves the reader wondering what the hell just happened.
I enjoyed reading through the story and it certainly packs a lot of action, but I feel like the times of reflection that helped the pacing for the previous story were largely missing.
This book focuses on action and a crisis, and while these are probably necessary to the plot, it was a whole lot all at once without much space for the reader to absorb it. Considering that it's only been about 5 months since the last book released I can't really fault the story for feeling short, but as a standalone novel this feels short. One of the things I've always liked about Will's writing is that he doesn't bog down his story with unnecessary details, his descriptions convey enough to be interesting but don't wallow in the setting to the point that I'm bored. It feels like he gave the plot this same treatment and I don't think it works as well on the plot as it does on his scenes.
What I've said is mostly negative but I largely enjoyed the book, those were my biggest complaints. At the end of the day if you've read through the series up to this point you should definitely buy the book, but be prepared going in for it to feel shorter than the previous installment.

But, we got a new addition to the cast! We got to see a monarch in action! New enemies and a better understanding of the heights Lindon has to achieve to save his people. Dread god is an apt name.. the body horror from the victims.
Also first book I've read in years that constantly improves on the previous instalment, creating a vast complex world and an intriguing storyline while somehow releasing at a extremely short wait. Counting down to the next instalment in the next few months because what more could you want?
