The Stone Knife by Anna Stephens (The Songs of the Drowned #1)

Anna Stephens is back, and her second series starts off bloodier, grittier, and more brutal than ever. Never has music sounded more terrifying in The Stone Knife, where colonisation is as unapologetically bloody as it is devious. The Stone Knife is indisputably one of the most impressively insidious entries in the fantasy genre I've read in 2020.
