About Brandon Sanderson

I write stories of the fantastic: fantasy, science fiction, and thrillers. My most popular series are the Mistborn books and the Stormlight Archive (set on different planets of the Cosmere), and the Reckoners trilogy beginning with Steelheart.

This was a fantastic novella, that I ads depth to the universe that Brandon Sanderson has created. Making this a must read for fans of the main series. It also has very poignant moments and conversations about human disability.

Loved it. Much more bite-sized than others in the same series, even though it was quite heft compared to most novelettes! I enjoyed all of the characters and am really glad this was standalone.

I agree with the two reviewers who precede me.

I disagree with future reviews on principle since they have the gumption to exist where (when) I can't read them.

Great book. Perfect to read just before Rhytm of War. And buying the DRM free version from smashwords makes it even better.

This story is a great addition to the Stormlight Archives. Rysn and Lopen make for great viewpoint characters, the exploration of disability and the importance of community is well done, and the conclusion of the story will have a major impact on the future of the series. Absolutely would recommend to anyone who has been following The Stormlight Archive.
