An all-new Stormlight Archive novella, "Edgedancer", is the crown jewel of Arcanum Unbounded: The Cosmere Collection, the first audiobook of short fiction by number one New York Times best-selling author Brandon Sanderson. The collection includes nine works in all. Originally published on Tor.com and elsewhere individually, these wonderful tales convey the expanse of the Cosmere and tell exciting tales of adventure Sanderson fans have come to expect.

This is the 4th book I have bought of short stories. I do not want to listen in order. I want to be able to open the chapter list and go straight to a story. How hard is that to do?

In this adrenaline-charged, up-to-the-moment political thriller, Stieg Larsson's Lisbeth Salander and Mikael Blomkvist are back.

Lisbeth Salander—the heart of Larsson’s two previous novels—lies in critical condition, a bullet wound to her head, in the intensive care unit of a Swedish city hospital. She’s fighting for her life in more ways than one: if and when she recovers, she’ll be taken back to Stockholm to stand trial for three murders. With the help of her friend, journalist Mikael Blomkvist, she will not only have to prove her innocence, but also identify and denounce those in authority.

All year the half-bloods have been preparing for battle against the Titans, knowing the odds of victory are grim. Kronos's army is stronger than ever, and with every god and half-blood he recruits, the evil Titan's power only grows. While the Olympians struggle to contain the rampaging monster Typhon, Kronos begins his advance on New York City, where Mount Olympus stands virtually unguarded. Now it's up to Percy Jackson and an army of young demigods to stop the Lord of Time.

Great Listen. Author did a great job closing out the story and the reader did an amazing job. This was my second time listening to this series.
