Shadows for Silence in the Forests of Hell

Originally appearing in the Dangerous Women anthology and now available as a solo ebook, Shadows for Silence in the Thickets of Hell is chilling novella of the Cosmere, the universe shared by Brandon Sanderson 's Mistborn series and the# 1 New York Times bestselling Stormlight Archive.

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: " Do n't kindle flame, do n't shed the blood of another, do n'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.
