Edgedancer
By: Brandon Sanderson


A novella within the Stormlight Archive series, Edgedancer by Brandon Sanderson is about Lift, a young girl who must adapt to her new "awesome" powers of gliding across surfaces. Accompanied by a odd and timid vine creature that assists her on her ventures, Lift seeks out a malicious murderer known as Darkness who once nearly killed her. Leaving the suffocating life in the court of an emperor, Lift travels to Yeddaw, a bustling town specialized in selling information, to pursue the mysterious Darkness. Knowing that Darkness is hunting people with budding powers like Lift, she must face the seemingly unstoppable force to save the future heroes of her world. Set in a massive continent with diverse cultures and nations, explored further throughout the Stormlight Archive series' main books, Edgedancer portrays just a slice of the immense world and character building Sanderson is known for. Edgedancer as a whole is a fun, eventful adventure with hints of mystery that left me on the edge of my seat through its enjoyable chapters.
