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.

This book is meant to be read after Words of Radiance but before Oathbringer. I would advise people to read it in this order as this story developes on the character Lift who is going to be a big character in the stormlight archives going forward.
I enjoyed getting to know her and looking at how her powers work. I think Lift brings that little bit of lighthearted carefree attitude that is something needed in tense books/situations.
I can’t wait to read more with Lift.
