Publisher's 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.

SHADES of Greatness

Sanderson once again creates a new world for us to explore. You would think two hours was not enough time to create a world, create a character and be entertaining, but Sanderson is the Master of Magical Worlds. There are some similarities to Peter V. Brett's The Warded Man, which is a great novel. This is all Sanderson though, which is also great.

Aes Sedai, Reading was great.
