A nice little novella which is set in between Stormlight 2 and 3. It follows Lift who has a minor role in the interludes in the main Stormlight books. I like the character but I am still not fond of her constant use of ‘awesome’. It is too American in the context and always takes me out of the story a bit.
Apart from that it is a great story, and we see more of some very cool characters, one of whom gets some pretty good insights. As always with Sanderson we also get more questions which I’m sure will be answered at some stage. I think this is fairly necessary for Stormlight 3 as there is some character development which Brandon mentions at the end which will be relevant.
