C.P. Cabaniss (cpcabaniss) | 3719 comments 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.


C.P. Cabaniss (cpcabaniss) | 3719 comments I'm so excited for this! I have no idea why I haven't read it...But now I finally will. And just in time for Oathbringer.

Gillian Murrell | 3704 comments I'm trying to work out where in the book is Edgedancer as the audio just lists chapter numbers not the individual books :(

I think it may become clearer as we read the next book. This is where Michael J. Sullivan has an advantage in writing the whole series before he releases it. His book don't need any add novellas to fix any missing information to make things fit.

C.P. Cabaniss (cpcabaniss) | 3719 comments I don't think it was so much that Sanderson thought he needed to "fix" anything for the next book, it was more just that he wants people to know what is happening with Lift before she becomes a focus in the main series.

That said, I think I will definitely need to write my entire series before releasing. I don't see any way around it.

I haven't read Mark Lawrence, I didn't know he does that. I know Sullivan does, which is cool and there are so many connections that I think would be impossible through Riyria without having it written that way.

Gillian Murrell | 3704 comments I just saw your list for December I know I have some of those books I will check out which ones I can get after work but I think I may be able to them all except Harry Potter as I have just done that whole series.

I thought he had to fix something about the assassin maybe I remember that part wrong.

C.P. Cabaniss (cpcabaniss) | 3719 comments Haha, I see that you meant Sullivan. Yes, I agree there.

Sweet! Let me know which ones you want to read! I've been trying to finish the HP series for a while (a reread) but just keep pushing those last two off.

Maybe he did have to fix something. I don't know what it could have been if he did, but it's very possible. I don't see how more authors don't have to do that.

Gillian Murrell | 3704 comments I just had a quick look and I can get or have all those books I do have to read The Death of Dulgath but I now have The Disappearance of Winter's Daughter on pre order :)
