Each of the given words contain the all the letters constituting the spelt out version of the numbers from 1 through 8.

Thus,

EBONY -> ONE -> 1 

STOW -> TWO -> 2

RETRENCH  -> THREE -> 3

UNIFORM -> FOUR -> 4

FEVERISH -> FIVE -> 5

EXITS -> SIX -> 6

SOVEREIGN  -> SEVEN -> 7

THIEVING -> EIGHT -> 8

Consequently, the word "thieving" is the best fit to continue the sequence.
