    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 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 based on the cover I honestly thought it would be a plot driven book featuring ...

    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 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 thi...

    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 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 well integrated world building as Arlen grows Brett did a fabulous job of creating the feeling of subsistence living, of huddling behind the doors each night and the race to get daily chores done by dusk to prevent demon attacks Before Arlen reaches teen years, the point of view switches to a young girl, Leesha, and then on to another boy, Rojer Their tale...

    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 Goodreads 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 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 Goodreads 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 to enjoy slower paced or boring, as my best friend calls them books provided all the other elements are there to keep me interested In that regard, TWM was a success.I think we were all expecting it to be a straightforward high fantasy novel, but it was anything but conventional Brett unapologetically broke storytelling rules left and right and it still somehow worked for me, anyway.For one thing, the he spent the entire first half of the book establishing character, showing the event...
