The Cosmere Novellas - Shadows For Silence in the Forests of Hell by Brandon Sanderson
Now, this is totally a different take on the Cosmere world. After reading, it left me gasp with adoration how in just 50 pages, Brandon is able to deliver such darkness in this story.
Many thoughts and many emotions left me thinking that this book has a certain background to it's origins on the Cosmere world. Shades, shadow are what you call both the protagonist and antagonist in this book.
Silver is being used here. Remember Silver is useless with Allomancy in the world of Mistborn. (Reference) However, silver is used as a form of a new magic system here. The used of silver is pretty legit in this world. When I mean world, I mean the Forest.
Silence Malone is of great character. She's strong, she has a mind of her own, she wants to change how her grandmother has made her the woman she is. So much emotions in just 50 pages. It's good!
Ratings: 4.75 out of 5 stars
