From #1 New York Times bestselling author Brandon Sanderson, a special gift edition of Edgedancer, a short novel of the Stormlight Archive (previously published in Arcanum Unbounded).

Three years ago, Lift asked a goddess to stop her from growing older--a wish she believed was granted. Now, in Edgedancer, the barely teenage nascent Knight Radiant finds that time stands still for no one. Although the young Azish emperor granted her safe haven from an executioner she knows only as Darkness, court life is suffocating the free-spirited Lift, who can't help heading to Yeddaw when she hears the relentless Darkness is there hunting people like her with budding powers. The downtrodden in Yeddaw have no champion, and Lift knows she must seize this awesome responsibility.

  • Amazingly Refreshing

    By HisMajestyClay
    This short novella follows an extremely likable duo as they explore an entirely new part of Roshar. Sanderson blew me away with how much he can fit into such a short book! This ties Words of Radiance together with the beginnings of Oathbringer quite nicely! Can’t wait to pick up the next book!
  • Quick but good

    Good book
  • Loved it!

    By Oodd B Narr
    Sanderson mentions his affection for the main character, Lift, and it shows. Love Lift and the unique way she views life.

    The price is ridiculous. Enough said.
  • Edgedancer

    I find myself wishing this story were about Jar-Jar Binx. It could not possibly be more contrived and frankly annoying than the character“Lift”. I’ve enjoyed this series for the most part, “Lift” being a glaring exception. #WORST_CHARACTER_EVER
  • Yet another success!

    Sanderson Stormblessed continues to amaze. Edgedancer provided a great “gap” story. The shorter chapters and quick readability presented a refreshing alternative to the denser 1000+ page novels that make up the rest of the Stormlight Archives (which I love!). The story is a great pivot from the characters we’ve been following so far and picking up on references to events from the other storylines was truly exciting. Now, onto Oathbringer!
  • Loved this!

    By DJ F-BOMB
    If you have an issue with the price, purchase the arcanum unbounded and get more stories for cheaper. Anyways this story is superb and Lifts character is absolutely delightful. This is a must read!
  • Great addition to the series...but the pricing ??

    By Clintonwl
    Loved this novelette. It is fun and light in a way that the main books aren't. However in comparison to the core books it is very brief and the price per page is a LOT higher. Lift is a fantastic character and I look forward to meeting her again in the future.
  • Very good book, but really overpriced

    By DatSawgDaddy
    This is really good. However, 7$ for 200 pages is ridiculous.
