    1. 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 [...]


    2. 4.5 5 StarsThe Warded Man is a superbly written debut that every fan of character driven fantasy must read.I started reading this book without knowing anything about it other than the premise It s been hundreds of years since the demons returned to ravage the world The demons only come at night and this situation has left humans isolated in their respective cities and heavily reliant on wards to repel their demonic adversaries The Warded Man is truly different from what I thought it would be bas [...]


    3. I ve seen this book in my feed for years now, so I finally decided to take the plunge and see what all the fuss was about And I m really glad I did because this was a pretty cool story.Ok, in this world there are demons Hiss Not the kind that possesses you and turns you into a minion of Satan, though The kind that come out at night and eat you RAWR Alright So basically these demons called corelings b c they come from the core of the earth rise up at night and wander around looking for humans and [...]


    4. 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 [...]


    5. The Warded Man had a tremendously strong start and was well on the way to a five star read Then three quarters of the way through, I became extremely disenchanted with characterization and plot jumping I ll average it out and call it three and a half stars Brett s world is fascinating a feudal system at the mercy of demons arising from the earth each night, and the only way to defend against them is through the work of drawn carved wards The story begins by following a young boy, Arlen, allowing [...]


    6. The world of The Painted Warded Man is governed by fear Countless corelings demons rule the night Magical wards that keep the demons out also keep the people in The promise of safety has become their prison Sidenote By the way, what s up with the name change Is this book a part of Book Witness Protection Program Why Being caught out in the open at night equals gruesome death People in this world hide trembling behind their wards at night terrified of what s out there Fear rules their lives and d [...]


    7. The Warded Man is an effective, efficiently written fantasy thriller, one with an ingenious premise at nightfall, various sorts of grisly corelings rise from the earth to slaughter all living beings folks live and travel behind various wards draw an imprecise ward you are fucked, and probably dead the novel documents a society which may or may not be in transition to ways that proactively and aggressively engage with this continual threat the set up is particularly effective in its recreation o [...]


    8. One of the most unique and engrossing novels I have ever read The 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 to fly by as t [...]


    9. This review is going to be a hodgepodge The Warded Man was such an unusual read that no matter how hard I tried I couldn t get my thoughts organized on it Here goes The Warded Man was a mixed bag of emotions for me and for most of my fellow Fantasy Buddy Reads group on The consensus was that it had a really slow start Even though I found myself invested as early as Chapter 3, many were struggling even as far in as the halfway point to find their enthusiasm if they even made it that far I happen [...]


    10. Reviewed by Rabid Reads4.5 starsOne of my favorite things about reading fantasy is the brand new worlds Writing a good book is an accomplishment by itself, but in fantasy the writer not only has to come up with a good story and good characters, they have to create a new place with new rules, new creatures, new cultures, new everything For an escapist reader, like myself, shoddy world building can ruin an otherwise perfectly good book, but above and beyond fantastical, yet believable new worlds, [...]


    11. I m easily super excited about this book and have no reservations about flying through the sequels Why Because we have an immersive epic fantasy world that focuses simply and easily on survival The world is overrun with demons that pop out of the ground at night and are only held back by drawn or carved wards Life is hard and harrowing, and if you make a single misstep, you die The three main characters Arlen, Leesha, and Rojen, are given delightful treatment in this world, from their childhoods [...]


    12. Oh, where to start with this book.Perhaps I should begin by pointing out that, according to the back of the book, this is the author s first novel don t quote me , this is his first published novel, I guess.Unfortunately, it shows.So, it s a fairly generic set up with a Medieval style community, humans vs demons, good vs evil Blah de blah As is obvious from the title, the primary protagonist eventually carves runes onto his skin to combat the demons and take a stand As a concept, it s fairly int [...]


    13. A fantasy secondary world or post apocalyptic Earth isn t clear, or at least not in the part of the book I read in which humankind is subject to attack every night by demons that materialize from the ground At the opening of the book, the only defense people have is to huddle behind magical wards which the demons cannot breach unless the chalk or whatever is scuffed or something, I don t know Humans cower in their cities or individual farmhouses, and it would be really great if someone learned t [...]


    14. Not only did it rise above the hype, but the hype looks like an ant from up here This is traditional fantasy done extremely well and with its own unique elements The Warded Man The Painted Man in the UK is exactly the type of fantasy I love summary As darkness falls each night, the corelings rise demons who well up from the ground like hellish steam, taking on fearsome form and substance Sand demons Wood demons Wind demons Flame demons And gigantic rock demons, the deadliest of all They possess [...]


    15. Three survivors of demon attacks spend their younger years learning to fight the corelings in their own ways Rojer becomes a Jongleur, a wandering minstrel whose fiddle playing can ward off the demon s attack Leesha becomes a healer and herb gatherer And Arlen walks the path of a Messenger At least at firstWow I have to admit I wasn t expecting a whole lot with this book Fantasy in a pseudo European setting Yawn city Imagine my delight when the book proved to be a breath of fresh air in the stag [...]


    16. There s nothing I love in a book than when it exceeds my expectations, and this book did just that This book has it all, a great plot, amazing characters, good writing, religion, sexism action,magic you name it The author created a whole new world that is broken and on a brink of being destroyed by demons As much as I love this book, I have a few issues with it, I feel like some things were unnecessary because it adds nothing to the plot whatsoever view spoiler Like when Leesha was ganged rape [...]


    17. At times, I believe that humanity is doomed to destroy itself Actually, I feel that way a lot, although it saddens me Which is why I prefer reading fiction that is hopeful, or with humans triumphing over the destructive forces within them or around them Tales in which the monster of the story is a fantastical beast of the inhuman variety, defeatable, even if it requires cost and sacrifice on the part of people I couldn t even imagine living in a world in which every night, demons take over, and [...]


    18. You can get this book FREE right now from the publisher at this link if you have a US address freebieA fantastic debut novel by Peter V Brett that feels fresh and original, even a few years after I first read it.This book is one of the best first efforts by any writer I have ever read, a real page turner The story is extremely gripping, the characters are easy to like and care for and the worldbuilding is excellent I never found myself bored or dragging my feet and the ending came far too soon L [...]


    19. This book turned my attention after reading a great review of Gavin I ll try and put my incoherent rambling to match at least 1% of his great review My journey started when the author led me into the world of monsters that rise in the night and attack humans who hide behind wards, fascinating old times with herb gatherers, jongleurs and messengers, who are the only ones who dare to travel far despite danger to bring messages and goods for exchange Interesting for sure And the symbols in the begi [...]


    20. 4.5 stars This was so awesome At first I thought it d be a slow book that I d have to read in parts, but then the second time I really picked it up, I just never put it back down, and read the majority of it in around five hours It was just so addictive I absolutely loved the characters of Arlen, Leesha, and Rojer, and following them growing up in this world and becoming the adults that they do was fascinating The world building is incredible, and while it s not the kind of fantasy story with on [...]


    21. Welcome to a world where every person knows what time the sun sets Sure it s partially because when the sun sets is quitting time, but it s mainly because people are trying to avoid being torn to shreds When the sun goes down evil literally comes out Some call them corelings others call them alagai, but their name doesn t matter when they come out All that matters is being behind the wards, well that and making sure the wards are fresh and clearly drawn In this insane world three survivors of de [...]


    22. Hmmmm well I get the feeling I m on my own here given the reviews, but here goes The warded man painted man is set in a kind of alternate future where after the age of science, the world has been thrown back into a dark age, where ancient elemental demons known as Corelings have once risen from the earth to feed upon mankind Man s only salvation rests in the magical properties of wards , magical symbols that can be written on homes, and earth to keep the creatures at bay The story has three pro [...]


    23. First things first, thank you Mark Monday for recommending this piece of treasure to me I ve read another amazing fantasy novel Your recommendations are always spot on I finished this novel in just a day Need I inform you that this is aFantasy novel , and I finished it in one day It was that good my good people It s near impossible to finish a fantasy novel in a day, as the length of any tend to make you finish one in 2 5 days I m aware that this had fewer pages compared to most fantasy novels, [...]


    24. This book was sitting on my tbr from last three years gathering dust I have decided to read at least ten books that are on my shelf for than two years and this was on top of that pile One of the other reason is that the author is wrapping up series with the release of final book I know its foolish to wait for a series to be complete when I even don t know if I am going to like first book or not But in this case I liked first book and I have decided to go ahead with this series.A really fascinat [...]


    25. I loved this book, but it took a while couple of tries that I actually finished the book The thing that I wished there was of is Arlen training And I wish there was not as much jump in the timeline, where we don t see Arlen, and that Arlen was the only character that we saw, him coming of age, and training That would be traditional So that the other two main point of view characters of Leesha and Rojer were unneeded in my opinion.


    26. I don t have much to say for this book I thought the premise was interesting, but there was something about the execution that just didn t grab me Like Sandi, I found it pretty preditcable and straightforward Unlike Sandi, I didn t connect with the characters enough for me not to care.The characters I did like the most were secondary Bruna, Ragan and Elissa, Master Cox but after they fill their roll to the main characters, we don t see them any This is has it should be , as it were, for it s not [...]


    27. This was a really good epic fantasy without all that dense worldbuilding Or it didn t read like it had a ton of worldbuilding and the focus was on the characters, which is the right way to do it IMO There are three main characters in this story and it does take a little bit to get into it as the POV shifts from one to the other so just as you re really getting into Arlen s story, it switches to Leesha But once you get to know all three, then the story just flies along at a nice pace.This world i [...]


    28. Reading the books on my friend s kindle has meant that there have been a bunch of books that I have tried that I probably would have taken a long time to get to otherwise, if ever Some of them have been not to my taste But this one was than a pleasant surprise It was really delightful Note The rest of this review has been withdrawn due to the recent changes in policy and enforcement You can read why I came to this decision here.In the meantime, you can read the entire review at Smorgasbook


    29. misogyny is common in mediocre fantasy misogyny AND orientalism takes skill, which this dude s got i am appalled at how many authors are heralding this as one of the greatest new arrivals in fantasy i can t remember the last time a fantasy author offended me this much oh wait i can terry goodkind.
