    One thought on “The Warded Man”

    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 prett [...]

    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 b [...]

    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 huma [...]

    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 wa [...]

    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, all [...]

    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 the [...]

    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 more proactively and aggressively engage with this continual threat. the set-up is particularly effective in it [...]

    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 [...]

    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 [...]

    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 [...]

    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 chil [...]

    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 f [...]

    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 [...]

    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. [...]

    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 [...]

    16. There's nothing I love more 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 ga [...]

    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 [...]

    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 soo [...]

    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 [...]

    20. 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 [...]

    21. 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 more 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 [...]

    22. 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 no [...]

    23. 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 more 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 [...]

    24. 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 more 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 more traditional. So that the other two main point of view characters of Leesha and Rojer were unneeded in my opinion.

    25. 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 anymore. This is has it 'should be', as it were, [...]

    26. 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 [...]

    27. 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 more 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 Smorg [...]

    28. 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.

    29. I had high expectations for The Warded Man as I've read so many good things about the series over the years. Did the story live up to the hype? Yes and no. It was an excellent story but a few flaws held it back from challenging any of my all time fantasy favourite series. Thad said, I definitely really enjoyed The Warded Man. Brett had an engaging storytelling style that was reminiscent of authors like Jordan and Rothfuss. The fantasy world was a fun one with the humans living in a demon infeste [...]

    30. A friend gifted me a copy of The Warded Man for my birthday, and I was worried I wouldn't like it. Demons? Meh. An orphan farm boy (sigh) who (conveniently) has the right skills to save the world? Meh. I wasn't excited by any of it and that wasn't helped by a rather slow start.The novel focuses on three protagonists, Arlen, Leesha and Rojer. We meet them as children and watch them live their lives in this world where humans are being hunted by demons as soon as the sun sets.As a reader you assum [...]

    31. The beginning of a series that's already up to 4 giant novels and 4 shorter entries. I kept hearing good things about it, so decided to check it out.Well it's a start. A slow start, however.The largest part of the book really moved too slowly for me, as it shows us three young people who are bored of life in their small, backward, restrictive towns.Admittedly, I guess the point is that their lives are restricted and boring but it got to the point where reading about them was boring, too. And oh, [...]

    32. 5.0 stars. WOW there are some really good fantasy series being written lately. Of my top ten favorite series, I wouild say that more than half of them have been written in the last 10 years. This one has the potential to be another great series. Great characters, an original magic system, great villians and excellent world-building. This book is a very good read. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!

    33. RTC but I had a last re-reading it. A foundation book more than anything else but it just delivers a great world, very convincing characters and a great foe. Or are there more?

    34. Before I knew what has happened, this book had sucked me in, chewed me, and spat me out. Broken. I expect nothing less from an epic fantasy.

    35. Sometimes it’s easier to be a coward. Easier to not fight back. To not stare in the eye of the bully harassing you. To slink around the corner, avoiding confrontation. Maybe the odds aren’t in you favor. Maybe fighting back could mean serious injury. Maybe it could mean your life.But what if your family was in danger. Would you stand and watch, paralyzed by fear, unable to help. Or would you fight. Even if fighting meant sacrificing yourself for your loved ones. What choice would you make? M [...]

    36. Awesome! It is such a treat to get hold of such an engaging story. The world building that Peter Brett uses here is one that will stand up beside the other greats such as Erikson, Martin, and Jordan.Brett blends epic fantasy with horror in a world of the corelings, demons that rise up at sunset each day to feed on the humans. There are ancient means to combat these creatures, but most of that art had been forgotten, lost in 3000 years of complacency after the demons seemingly went away. The Ward [...]

    37. 5 StarsI original gave the Warded Man/the Painted Man 4 stars the first time I read it. But after some time had passed, I read and loved the second book, now more than a year later in anticipation of reading the third book that it is out now, I could not wait to reread this book. By definition, regardless of any flaws or shortcomings, if a novel interests me so much that I want to spend time reading it again for a second time, that I cannot help but give it full marks. That being said, regardles [...]

    38. Right before I started this book, I had been reading this lengthy fantasy novel that left my mind confused, tired, and utterly dissatisfied with character development. After that ordeal, I was just really in need of a good, baggage-less story that can take me away from all that. Turned out The Warded Man was exactly what I was looking for -- a character driven novel that grabbed me right away, and certainly the story was interesting, action-packed and straightforward enough to keep that momentum [...]

    39. This has been out for a while and has been popular enough to spawn three subsequent books so I think people realise that this is a good book/series/author. I had not paid the series or author much attention until Peter appeared at the Grim Gathering alongside Mark Lawrence and Joe Abercrombie, who are two are my favourite storytellers. I was then fortunate enough, just when enough time had passed that he might have slipped from my mind, to have the lovely Mia send me a copy of The Warded Man.Two [...]

    40. This did not feel like a debut novel. It doesn’t have that raw, first book feel where the plot grows its own legs and takes you places that have you scratching your head. Not that I mind that at all, but what Peter V Brett has produced here is a polished story, obviously written to an outline with good consistent pacing and a lot of editing. It was very easy to read and the pages just flew by and my attention was held from start to finish. What you won’t find, at least not at this stage in t [...]

    41. So the way I found out about this book was by coming across Peter V. Brett's awesome blog post about his frustrations with a certain RPG game:petervbrett/2014/09/10I had actually never read any of his books, but was so taken with his outrage on his daughter's behalf that I immediately read The Painted Man; well, not immediately, I finished The Wise Man's Fear first, and then read The Painted Man. I must say that I really loved the book. I don't write long reviews on . I spend most of my time rea [...]

    42. via GIPHYBald Mage Rating 7/10‘Don’t presume to know me’ ‘I kill corelings, yes and because of that, I have seen places no living man remembers. Shall I recite poetry I’ve translated from ancient Rusk? Paint for you the murals of Anoch Sun? Tell you of machines from the old world that could do the work of twenty men?’I will start this review by saying that fellow Bald Mage Keith Brady has been nagging me to read Peter V Brett’s first novel for ages so I got the book and left it on [...]

    43. Review in Portuguese from Desbravando Livros:Lançamento de março da editora DarkSide, O Protegido é uma das grandes apostas para 2015 no Brasil em termos de fantasia. O autor Peter V. Brett é aclamado lá fora como um dos grandes nomes da literatura fantástica e esperamos que aqui no Brasil também seja!Desde o início dos tempos, na Era da Ignorância, os demônios sobem à superfície quando a noite chega e tem um único objetivo: destruir os humanos que estão em seu caminho.

    44. OMG!!!!! This book was AMAZING!! whew! honestly wish i could get super eloquent and all that but all i have is amazingLoved the characters, there were some gritty scences in the book that mad my jaw drop though, totally unexpected but good all the same.However, cant help feeling we didnt get a whole lot of Rojer though also now that i think of it for a book that's called the warded man, there isn't really a lot of the warded man when he actually becomes the warded man. Also, thinking back to Lee [...]
