I ADORE Ead!! That’s the first thing I wanted to say about the book. She’s just a fantastic character. I got a little bit of a Robin Hobb vibe from this book which also made it a winner for me because I love Hobb. The pacing moves quite quickly despite the length of the book and I never got stuck or felt like it bogged down in too much detail. The world building is fantastic and brings the story to life. Sabran was my second fav character, but I really enjoyed all the characters introduced throughout. My second ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ read of 2020. Highly recommend this one
