    "Interesting stories, almost ruined by narrators"

    The stories provide an interesting backdrop to many of Sanderson's Cosmere novels, neatly answering questions and filling in some blanks. The additions to the Mistborn series are especially welcome.

    But once again, Michael Kramer, Kate Reading and whoever edits and checks these recordings do their best to ruin it for the listener. Michael Kramer sounds mechanical, while Kate Reading sounds like a primary school teacher reading out a book to 5 year olds in her best, over acted, "look how dramatic I'm being" voice. Just awful.

    Having just listened to Elantris, read by Jack Garret, I was looking forward to the follow up short story in this anthology. Clearly nobody bothered to check the pronunciation of many of the names against either the already published audiobook, or Brandon Sanderson's freely available pronunciation guide available on his website. The result being that many character and place names are pronounced incorrectly. It really would not have been rocket science to check this out beforehand. Neither of these narrators are very good, and the editorial team behind these recordings needs to wake up.

    "One for the fans"
    Any additional comments?

    A book for the fans, many of the stories relate to previous books. Whilst all can be read as stand alone stories they are much more enjoyable when you are aware of the back stories. An excellent read.

    "not Bad however not my thing
    "

    I Found it Hard to get through some Stories but Edge Dancer was Amazing Silence and Dusk were my favorite After Lift and I'd love to read More about them

    "Brilliant!!"

    Finally got this under my belt! Loved the background story's to all the Cosmere planets and law, answers a lot of the question that you think on when reading the different series. Not to mention in my case waiting for Stormlight 3 to be published. However, it still leaves a lot of unanswered question but just enough to keep you wanting more. Very satisfied! Also loved the narrators!! Micheal and Kate are some of the best in the business in my opinion!!
