Book Review: Peter V. Brett’s The Warded Man

The world is a dangerous place at night.  Demons (corelings) from the core roam free.  The only things holding them back are wards that must be meticulously cared for or else those hiding behind them become food for the demons.

The Warded Man by Peter Brett follows three different characters (Arlen, Leesha, and Rojer) as they grow up and mature in this world; each learning how to combat the demons in their own way.  At times, the story needlessly diverges from these characters and sucks in a few other, not even secondary, characters to provide some other points of view, but these are the three main characters.  These other POV characters appear for just a brief enough period of time that they don’t detract greatly from the narrative.

Under The Darkened Moon Next Rewrite/Edit Started

March 28, 2012 Leave a comment

I have now begun a new edit of my novel Under the Darkened Moon. Feedback from the last rewrite was good but I though of some additional things to put early in the story, particularly pertaining to the world’s magic system. I have touched up the first three chapters and have a group looking at them.

How many more rewrites there will be is uncertain. It will be done when it is done is the way I look at it.
