The stunning debut fantasy novel from author Peter V. Brett. The Painted Man, book one of the Demon Cycle, is a captivating and thrilling fantasy adventure, pulling the reader into a world of demons, darkness and heroes. Sometimes there is very good reason to be afraid of the dark...Arlen lives with his parents on their small farmstead, half a day's ride from the isolated hamlet of Tibbet's Brook. As dusk falls each evening, a mist rises from the ground promising death to any foolish enough to brave the coming darkness. For hungry demons materialize from the vapours to feed, and as the shadows lengthen, all of humanity is forced to take shelter behind magical wards and pray that their protection holds until the dawn. But when Arlen's world is shattered by the demon plague, he realizes that it is fear, rather than the monsters, which truly cripples humanity. Only by conquering their own terror can they ever hope to defeat the demons. Now Arlen must risk leaving the safety of his wards to discover a different path, and offer humanity a last, fleeting chance of survival. Voted one of the top ten fantasy novels of 2008 by amazon.co.uk.

Every bit as excellent as rumors would have it - I wish I'd read it sooner and will be having to track down the sequels when I'm caught up on my reading.

3.0 REVIEW: The Warded Man (Demon Cycle #1) by Peter V. Brett
The basic idea behind the novel is compelling. Demons rise from the ground every night, hounding and killing the ever diminishing human population. We follow the lives of three different protagonists at various points in time. The plot of the novel isn't very strong. It's basically three coming of...
