It was an enjoyable short story, but I could not connect to the characters. The plot was pretty simple, although the setting is still interesting. I would have appreciated more explanation about the world and the shadows in typical Sanderson's style, but due to space constraints I am aware it gets tricky doing so. I am curious to know more in detail how this story and characters will connect to the rest of the cosmere. ( )

Another awesome Sanders short story/novella. It always boggles my mind how much he manages to pack in so few pages. Also how he is able to crate unique worlds that still make sense and interconnect. ( )

Shadows for Silence in the Forests of Hell is a fascinating Sanderson story set in an out of the way corner of his shared universe--the cosmere.

It's a creepy short (for Sanderson) that follows an older woman (probably middle aged). She's a mother, an inn-keeper, and a bounty hunter. She's a wonderful character and really does do a lot to sell the story.


I believe in the God Beyond,” Silence said, after they reached the other side.
“But—”
“I don’t worship,” Silence said, “but that doesn’t mean I don’t believe. The old books, they called this land the home of the damned. I doubt that worshiping does any good if you’re already damned. That’s all.”


I'd love to see a bit more in this universe, but that goes for just about anything Sanderson writes in the cosmere.

Whether you are looking to read everything you can in the cosmere or if you just want a dark fantasy short, this book is worth the read. ( )

This short story by Sanderson describes a night in the life of an unexpected bounty hunter. As you would expect given the author, the unusual parts of the world are given the attention you would expect in a full novel. Ghosts that attack at the sight of blood could have been a cliche topic, but in this case it was flushed out enough with the economy, protection and past events to keep things interesting. ( )

84 points/100 (4.25 stars/5).

Silence lives in the Forests of Hell, which is populated by dangerous shades, and has to follow several rules to stay safe from these shades. She is also a bounty hunter. The rules and her side job aren't always the easiest to combine.

This was an insane interesting novella set in Brandon Sanderson's Cosmere. I have honestly no clue how it is connected to the cosmere as a whole yet, but man was I interested in it. As always with Sanderson, the novella starts off a bit slow. It warms you up for that ending. And wow, was that an ending. This was a darker story than I typically expect from Sanderson. It got my heart racing from early on.

The world Sanderson builds is incredibly interesting. The idea of them living in a forest populated by shades that will eat you so that you wither if you don't follow their rules is so cool. And, the rules really don't always make sense. And, you get hints the entire world isn't this way, just this forest. There is a story here, a whole world not yet being told. At the end, I was left craving more in this world. It is cruel that I don't know if there is more here yet.

Perhaps unsurprisingly for Sanderson, the main character, Silence, wasn't exactly anything special. Or maybe that is because the world overshadowed the character so much that it was harder to recognise Silence as something amazing, too. I liked her, don't get me wrong. It was really cool to follow a main character that wasn't in their early 20s to early 30s, who had kids, who was a widow. I did at times find her complaining about her grandmother to be a bit much, though.

I'm not certain what I was expecting, but this blew it out of the water. ( )
