I love this book so much! It feels like a symphony the way the different characters rally together, slowly becoming united into one badass fighting unit, promising a breathtaking conclusion to such a wonderful series.
I found the character development in newer characters like Elide and Manon to be wonderful as we watch them develop into the quality of people that we love from Sarah J. Maas. I also found that the timing of the different points of views was done masterfully as you never spent too long with one character to get bored and start wandering after another character. There is also no instance of a characters POV being unwelcome, as it takes us from a more favoured storyline. Everyone has an interesting story to tell and each chapter is filled with excitement and development.
I can’t wait to join these characters again in Kingdom of Ash.
