Just finished David and Leigh Eddings' latest book. The pov shifts mostly don't work and mostly end up repeating the same things in almost the same words over and over again instead of providing new and useful insight. They needed an editor for that who could stand up to their momentum of fame.
Also, the ending? It sucks when it is done in SF. In fantasy where it isn't even a grand old tradition? Gah.

Also, I think the message would have been stronger if the character who was revealed to be more than they appeared had just been themself.

In all? a mostly enjoyable book with very loose editing and the world's worst plot resolution device. Not their best work.
