A light flickering through nearby bookcases startled her, and she tucked
away her folio. It turned out to be just an old, berobed female ardent, shuffling
with a lantern and followed by a parshman servant. She didn’t look in Shallan’s
direction as she turned between two rows of shelves, her lantern’s light shining
out through the spaces between the books. Lit that way—with her figure hidden
but the light streaming between the shelves—it looked as if one of the Heralds
themselves were walking through the stacks.

Her heart racing again, Shallan raised her safehand to her breast.
she thought with a grimace. She finished gathering her things

and moved through the stacks, lantern held before her. The head of each row
was carved with symbols, indicating the date the books had entered the
Palanaeum. That was how they were organized. There were enormous cabinets
filled with indexes on the top level.

Jasnah had sent Shallan to fetch—and then read—a copy of , a
famous historical work on political theory. However, this was also the room that
contained —the book Jasnah was reading when the king
had visited. Shallan had later looked it up in the index. It might have been
reshelved by now.

Suddenly curious, Shallan counted off the rows. She stepped in and counted
shelves inward. Near the middle and at the bottom, she found a thin red volume
with a red hogshide cover. . Shallan set her lantern on the
ground and slipped the book free, feeling furtive as she flipped through the
pages.

She was confused by what she discovered. She hadn’t realized this was a
book of children’s stories. There was no undertext commentary, just a collection
of tales. Shallan sat down on the floor, reading through the first one. It was the
story of a child who wandered away from his home at night and was chased by
Voidbringers until he hid in a cavern beside a lake. He whittled a piece of wood
into a roughly human shape and sent it floating across the lake, fooling the
creatures into attacking and eating it instead.

Shallan didn’t have much time—Jasnah would grow suspicious if she
remained down here too long—but she skimmed the rest of the stories. They
were all of a similar style, ghost stories about spirits or Voidbringers. The only
commentary was at the back, explaining that the author had been curious about
the folktales told by common darkeyes. She had spent years collecting and
recording them.

Shadows Remembered, Shallan thought,

This was what Jasnah had been reading? Shallan had expected
