Summary

When the familiar and seemingly safe turns lethal, therein danger lies. Amid a forest where the shades of the dead linger all around, every homesteader knows to follow the Simple Rules: "Don't kindle flame, don't shed the blood of another, don't run at night. These things draw shades." Silence Montane has broken all three rules on more than one occasion. And to protect her family from a murderous gang with high bounties on their heads, Silence will break every rule again, at the risk of becoming a shade herself.

Gripping

Brilliant story. You so want Silence to succeed and there are lots of highs and lows. Loved the ending. Brandon can sure tell a tale.

Meh...

I'm not a fan of the narrator, and this short story lacked the substance of the other Sanderson Cosmere novels.

Sanderson wins once again

Brandon Sanderson can be expected to have unique twists and turns in his narrative. Once again he does not disappoint. Who is the White Fox, what are the shades, what do they represent and how do you avoid them. All are answered, well mostly - there could be sequel. Catch it when is comes and don't forget to pick this one up first, preferably now !

Kate Reading does her usual fantastic job of narrating this story - but with almost 320 spoken books to her credit, she has shown that she could read the phone book and make it exciting.
