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. Look for Peter V. Brett's complete Demon Cycle: THE WARDED MAN - THE DESERT SPEAR - THE DAYLIGHT WAR - THE SKULL THRONE - THE CORE (Coming soon!)

About the Author

Peter V. Brett is the internationally bestselling author of The Warded Man, The Desert Spear, The Daylight War, and The Skull Throne. Raised on a steady diet of fantasy novels, comic books, and Dungeons & Dragons, Brett has been writing fantasy stories for as long as he can remember. He received a bachelor of arts degree in English literature and art history from the University at Buffalo in 1995, then spent more than a decade in pharmaceutical publishing before returning to his bliss. He lives in New York City. From the Hardcover edition.


"Brett's debut builds slowly and grimly on a classic high fantasy framework of black-and-white morality and bloodshed. Young Arlen battles demons to save his mother while his father watches in terror; when his mother dies, Arlen runs away. Leesha leaves her village to work in the city hospital of Angiers after her betrothed claims to have taken her virginity. Jongleur Arrick Sweetsong saved himself from demons at the expense of a female friend, but he honors her last request and raises her son, Rojer, as his apprentice. Only near the end do the three strands of the story begin to intertwine. With its nameless enemies that exist only to kill, Brett's gritty tale will appeal to those who tire of sympathetic villains and long for old-school orc massacres."--Publishers Weekly "I enjoyed The Warded Man immensely. There is much to admire in Peter Brett's writing, and his concept is brilliant. There's action and suspense all the way, plus he made me care about his characters and want to know what's going to happen next."--Terry Brooks "The Warded Man works not only as a great adventure novel but also as a reflection on the nature of heroism."--Charlaine Harris "An absolute masterpiece . . . The novel [is] literally 'unputdownable, ' and certainly deserves to be the next Big Thing in dark fantasy."--HorrorScope "A very accomplished debut fantasy, broad in its scope."--SFRevu "A fabulous new fantasy series . . . that is likely to become a classic. Excellent fantasy literature."--The Cairns Post, Queensland, Australia From the Hardcover edition.

Love it! I've been looking for a fantasy series which delivers something more than the typical magic sword/ruined kingdom/journey of discovery, and this delivers. Its very well-written, and recommended by a legion of wellknown fantasy writers. The characters drag you in, and the story is utterly captivating and intriguing.
Learn from my mistake, The Painted Man and The Warded Man are the same book, just different versions. I got overexcited, and bought both of them thinking one was the third part as the blurbs are completely different. The third part won't be released until 2013 :(

WOW! Meizmerising, brilliant, gripping, a new adventure that hooked me from the start. This book is amazing, as soon as I picked it up I couldn't put it down. I literally read the whole book in one go and as soon as I finished I jumped online to order the desert spear. I'm now waiting excitedly in anticipation for it to arrive, can't wait!!
