Description

Shadows for Silence in the Forest of Hell is a novella set in the Cosmere. Who names their daughter Silence, and what does it imply? What is it like to grow up with this name? The answer's built into the concept of a stout pioneer woman who ran an inn on the frontier, drawing the seediest criminals the land had to offer. She’d then track them after they left her inn and murder them for their bounties.

Perfect State sets God-Emperor Kairominas on a date. What happens when the most important man in the world is forced to have dinner with the most important woman in the world?

Two Perfect Sanderson Miniatures

Brandon Sanderson's imagination is prodigal, spitting out richly developed worlds at a rate much too fast for even his breakneck writing to keep pace with. Some of the worlds get long novels, some get very long novels, and some even get whole series of very long novels devoted to them. Some (THE EMPEROR'S NEW SOUL, SHADOWS FOR SILENCE IN THE FOREST OF HELL, and PERFECT STATE) get only novellas. But regardless of the volume of prose, one always has the sense that one is visiting a complete world, with its own history, laws, and tensions. Some visits are brief, some protracted, but all are rewarding.

This program offers the listener two brief visits: two novellas set in different worlds. Both are very interesting and exciting places, with unseen depths we would like to see explored. The experienced Sanderson fan should have no trouble imagining either of them getting its own epic trilogy. A fan who has kept track of his recent output, though, will doubtless realize that he already has too many irons in the fire. We won't get those trilogies, and must be content with miniatures. Both of them are delightful.

Brilliant novellas

I loved Shadows of Silence and the concept of Perfect State. Both the novellas develop character and story in the few hours.

Shadows of Silence was very well written and conceptualized. I ended up caring for the characters in just a few hours of reading.

Perfect State character development was a little slow and dull. the concept was brilliant.

Narrators are great as always.

awesome book

The main character was a bad a** woman who you could not help but love her spunk. Reading about how they lived made you wish the book was longer. You really hated the villain and you were very happy when you saw how Silence defeated him.

Two amazing Novellas showcasing Sanderson's skill!

Is there anything this man writes that isn't awesome??? Once again I was taken to two amazing places in his Cosmere and loved them both. Kate Reading is an exceptional performer. I've also enjoyed her in the Stormlight archive.
Christian Rummel gave a fun spin with his adaptation of Perfect State (although I'm a bigger fan of Michael Kramer and his amazing voice work).
If you aren't a huge fan of the longer reads or haven't been introduced to Brandon Sanderson's work give these novellas a try...you won't regret it!

Perfect was great while Shadows... was ok.

I'm a huge fan of Brandon Sanderson. Shadows for silence was good but should have been twice as long. Too many questions were left unanswered and narration was bland. maybe that was the point. 3 stars for this book

On the other hand, Perfect state couldn't be better named. I would like to see more of this world for sure. Anything can happen. 5 stars for this book.

These were ok listens

I prefer hearing complete stories. Both of these would make great full length novels but the way they are I am left feeling like I am missing something in the beginning and in the end. These stories are a 3 course meal but only the meat is on the plate.
