The Overlady Reads Edgedancer!

Overlord Jebus

Hi all and welcome to The Overlady Reads Edgedancer! This one is a little shorter than the others, due to Edgedancer being a smaller book. Hope you all enjoy this tidbit before we tackle the behemoth that is Oathbringer!



  • 100g plain flour
  • 2 large eggs
  • 300ml milk
  • 1 tbsp sunflower or vegetable oil, plus a little extra for frying
  • Lemon wedges to serve (optional)
  • caster sugar to serve (optional)



STEP 1 Put 100g plain flour, 2 large eggs, 300ml milk, 1 tbsp sunflower or vegetable oil and a pinch of salt into a bowl or large jug, then whisk to a smooth batter.

STEP 2 Set aside for 30 mins to rest if you have time, or start cooking straight away.

STEP 3 Set a medium frying pan or crêpe pan over a medium heat and carefully wipe it with some oiled kitchen paper.

STEP 4 When hot, cook your pancakes for 1 min on each side until golden, keeping them warm in a low oven as you go.

STEP 5 Serve with lemon wedges and caster sugar, or your favourite filling.

These are my favorite things!

I do have ten nitpicks, though:

  1. Neither the shardfork nor the Lie of the Tenth Pancake were mentioned.
  2. Not all orders have exactly five oaths. Lightweavers explicitly have an undefined number that is usually greater than five, depending on how much therapy they need.
  3. Shallan was about 11 when she killed her mother. It happened within months of the killing of Gavilar (possibly the same day, but unlikely).
  4. You never mentioned the tenth pancake.
  5. It was known when Edgedancer came out that both Ym and the Stump were Truthwatchers, because they both had progression and neither were Edgedancers.
  6. The way that Lift figured out that Nin-son-God wouldn't kill her if she was pardoned is that he punished his henchmen for stabbing Gawx without a warrant.
  8. Wyndle almost explicitly says that Lift's boon was actually granted by Cultivation herself, not by the Nightwatcher. As far as we know, the Nightwatcher cannot on her own grant boons that are different from what the person asked for, though if she is incapable of granting what the wisher asks she will try to suggest a different boon unless Cultivation steps in.
  9. We also learn that Lift has an uncanny ability to pick up slang and new language, which may or may not be related to her powers (the fact that it is pointed out to the reader in-character implies that it is important).
  10. There is no tenth nitpick. It is actually a metaphor for the incompleteness of true pedantry.
