Publisher Description

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

Great

Trust me it’s a great read, that has many elements that come all together at the end. I highly recommend it, but the rest of the books aren’t even close to the first. The second and third are good, and the 4th one is okay, but the last one wasn’t that good. I could bring myself to even finish the last one. But the first is great!!

An average Fantasy book

Generally an Ok book, but nothing special.

Waste of time

I don't suppose this review will help, as it was reviews here that recommended this book to me. The story is unoriginal and predictable, and the writing is as thin as the plot line. Don't waste your time.
