From the dangerous world of the Demon Cycle comes the early adventures of Arlen, Peter V. Brett’s quintessential fantasy hero. These exciting origin tales follow Arlen as he learns to navigate a world where the elemental forces of evil conjure themselves from the earth each night.
Humanity has barely survived a demonic onslaught by using magical wards that protect their cities and homes. Only a handful of mercenaries and explorers risk traveling after the sun sets. Arlen, seeking adventure and fortune, is barely protected by the warded armor upon which he has inscribed intricate defensive runes. From a journey ferrying a wagonload of dynamite to a mountain stronghold, to a dangerous mission to recover desert treasures, Arlen faces friends and enemies with a strong arm and a cunning wit.
Peter V. Brett is the bestselling author of The Demon Cycle, which includes The Painted Man (re-published as The Warded Man in the U.S.), The Desert Spear, and The Daylight War, and has two more forthcoming novels in the series. In addition to the quintet, he has published three standalone novellas and has one standalone novel forthcoming. After writing The Painted Man during his commute on the F train, he left his day job to pursue writing full time, and currently lives in Brooklyn with his daughter Cassandra.
