As darkness falls after sunset, the corelings rise demons who possess supernatural powers and burn with a consuming hatred of humanity For hundreds of years the demons have terrorized the night, slowly culling the human herd that shelters behind magical wards symbols of power whose origins are lost in myth and whose protection is terrifyingly fragile It was not always this way Once, men and women battled the corelings on equal terms, but those days are gone Night by night the demons grow stronger, while human numbers dwindle under their relentless assault Now, with hope for the future fading, three young survivors of vicious demon attacks will dare the impossible, stepping beyond the crumbling safety of the wards to risk everything in a desperate quest to regain the secrets of the past Together, they will stand against the night One of the most unique and engrossing novels I have ever readThe Warded Man tells the story of Arlen, Leesha, and Rojer and how their lives end up intersecting We meet Arlen and Leesha when they are only eleven and Rojer when he is only four They live in a world ravished by demons every night Humans are forced to live behind protective wards or die terrible deaths at the hands of these demons I have to admit it was hard to believe the book was over 900 pages long The pages seemed t I learned a lot from this book, because I wrote it myself My rating may be somewhat biased as a result. A rather brief review since I read the book very nearly 5 years ago.I came to this book with no expectations, finding it on the shelves in my house Both sons recommended it, but that s not always a recommendation There are fantasy books that are all about the plot, fantasy books that are all about the characters, and fantasy books that are all about the world building This one manages to be all about all of that.The big idea is the demons and it s a good one I d not seen demons done this wa A rather brief review since I read the book very nearly 5 years ago.I came to this book with no expectations, finding it on the shelves in my house Both sons recommended it, but that s not always a recommendation There are fantasy books that are all about the plot, fantasy books that are all about the characters, and fantasy books that are all about the world building This one manages to be all about all of that.The big idea is the demons and it s a good one I d not seen demons done this way and the partitioning of them into the night, combined with the system of wards, really works to create a very interesting dynamic.The wards themselves are not only interesting in the sense of a magic system but also in a meta sense as they are a marketeer s dream They provide for the fandom almost limitless fuel for fan art, cos play, and branding not in the literal sense I ve seen a line of wards as jewelry, warding as body art it goes on.The main character first introduce, driving force is Arlen and although he s a farm boy rises to hero he manages to overcome the trope and be an interesting character, primarily through his combination inventiveness, down to earth morality, and bravery The other point of view characters are also engaging and offer complete a diverse set of windows onto the world Brett s made for us.Arlen s chosen vocation involves a lot of traveling which is great for covering the map and colouring in the detail.The plot works too Ostensibly the book is about defeating or surviving the demon threat, and it hasof that in this first book than the later ones, but even here the politics and character interactions are a major focus Brett gives us a complex world full of interesting people, and the demons act as a constant source of pressure to drive the characters to extremes In many ways The Warded Man is old school fantasy, but it s written in a modern style that I found refreshing A really good read Join my 3 emails a year newsletter prizes Buddy read with my wonderful friend, CeliseI freaking loved this book Arlen, Leesha, Rojer, Bruna, Ragen, Cob, Leesha s father and Twilight Dancer were my favorite characters The book tells the story about 3 people, Arlen, Leesha, Rojer It starts when they are younger until they are adults and how they find each other They live in a world where you have to be inside a Warded home or Warded circle etc, before night fall This is when the demons rise and if you re not safe, you re pretty mu Buddy read with my wonderful friend, CeliseI freaking loved this book Arlen, Leesha, Rojer, Bruna, Ragen, Cob, Leesha s father and Twilight Dancer were my favorite characters The book tells the story about 3 people, Arlen, Leesha, Rojer It starts when they are younger until they are adults and how they find each other They live in a world where you have to be inside a Warded home or Warded circle etc, before night fall This is when the demons rise and if you re not safe, you re pretty much eaten I can t describe how awesome this world is, besides the getting eaten part I mean it s just like nothing I have read before And yes, there are people I wanted to beat down, but that is all par for the course I really, really hope the next books are good because there are mixed reviews I hate that because this is one of my new favorite books Mel
