Hard for me to express how much I enjoyed this book (and the series) so I'm not going to try in any depth - but basically, I LOVED the world building and the cast of characters too, ace - some of the secondary players especially stood out.
The series also has a superb set of magic systems, one of which involves painting in a clever way which really puts some complications on the plot. And for someone living in Australia, the red desert-setting felt familiar yet chilling too, especially when water plays such a vital role in the story.
