    I finished it. I really really liked it. I think it was in the same field as Way Of Kings.

    I'm gonna do a re-read once the holidays start.

    I've completed the book too. It's fine, not as boring as Oathbringer, but imo below the level of the first two books.

    Is there adequate amounts of Lift?

    Please say yes.

    You were partially right on most of these and it does make me reasses the book for the worse
    Lift is there, but not prominent. Too many important things happening/encyclopedia dumps. I'd say she played a greater role in the previous story.

    While there was one subplot I did not really care for, I think that overall, this might actually be the volume I like most so far. To be fair, the aspects I enjoyed may well be the reasons others will like it less.

    Planning to reread all the other Cosmere books now. It's been a while and I'm curious if I am able to spot any of the connections between them that are supposedly in there.

    Really enjoyed this book, I didn't bother rereading any of the previous ones though I likely will before book 5 comes out in '23.
    I thought there'd be a longer timeskip after this one but then the last few chapters mean book 5 might wrap this up and then a timeskip? Nah, I think Kaladin will definitely be part of the larger cosmere war though Radiants can't leave the Roshar system. I'll have to start following the other cosmere books more, I can't even remember how Elantris
    gods died.

    I finished this yesterday. It had some slow moments, but overall, I enjoyed it a lot. It was about time Navani got more of a spotlight.

    I actually didn't like Navani getting
    the sibling, I was lowkey rooting for the mute guy to get it
    I did love her scholar stuff though.
