Originally appearing in the Dangerous Women anthology and now available as a solo ebook, Shadows for Silence in the Forests of Hell is a chilling novella of the Cosmere, the universe shared by Brandon Sanderson's Mistborn series and the #1 New York Times bestselling Stormlight Archive.
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.

Enjoy the Silence! (couldn't help it)
This is a great quick read. It doesn't require having read the Mistborn series, but I highly suggest it because like this story, the tension and characters are brilliantly brought to life. Few people can give a story a real sense of danger the way Sanderson does. By setting up rules and reminding of them subtly, he masterfully builds a sense of foreboding before pulling the trigger on his greatest skill; letting his characters react. It is in those moments of action they truly shine. Mr. Sanderson has shown a spotlight on a truly dangerous woman, her story will not disappoint.
