For those who reside in the outer regions of Aleria, the day of bestowal is what determines their destiny. It is the holy day of the Goddess. The day that allows those of age to step forward and receive their blessing, to embark on the path that she has chosen for them. To receive their Classification, which dictates their strength and ability. For those people, the holy day of bestowal represents fate itself. For Dante, it represents salvation.

This book is packed full from beginning to end with mystery and shocking turns. Some people like intense character details and you will not much here. I however, like to imagine the rest. Jeff Hays has a hand in giving so much character with just his voice. I can't wait for the rest of this series!

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? Perfect State sets God-Emperor Kairominas on a date.

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.
