Almost everything that made this series amazing in the first 2 books has been whittled away to mere sidenotes. The downward spiral started in book 3 and bottoms out with this book. You can read the first 100 pages and the last 100 pages and get every important point of the book without having to struggle through constant, boring, repetitive "whimpering in fear BECAUSE OF ALL MY TRAUMA!!!" and psychotherapy 101 plotlines. There is also really no sense of risk for any of the major characters; one or two side characters always get offed but you always know there are no real stakes for any of the others. None of the other radiant classes are developed at all.
These books were 10x better when it was warriors with massive magical blades in almost indestructible magical-powered super-armor just fighting in huge battles and sometimes duelling. Go back to that, please.
