Not as good as Fifth Season since it didn's span the different eras and was all after the end of the world, but pretty close.

Good continuation of the series. If I see critically, nothing much actually happened in this book. Nassun reached the "school" where she is learning her abilities and Essun learnt how to control Obelisk Gate. That's about it. And yet, I didn't feel bored at any moment. The pace was a little slow, but kept me interested in the story.
