THE PAINTED MAN is currently on sale!


Peter V. Brett‘s fantastic debut, THE PAINTED MAN, is currently on sale in the UK! The first novel in the best-selling Demon Cycle series, and published in the UK by Voyager, the eBook is currently discounted on Amazon and iBooks. Here’s the synopsis…

Sometimes there is very good reason to be afraid of the dark…

Arlen lives with his parents on their small farmstead, half a day’s ride from the isolated hamlet of Tibbet’s Brook. As dusk falls each evening, a mist rises from the ground promising death to any foolish enough to brave the coming darkness. For hungry demons materialize from the vapours to feed, and as the shadows lengthen, all of humanity is forced to take shelter behind magical wards and pray that their protection holds until the dawn.

But when Arlen’s world is shattered by the demon plague, he realizes that it is fear, rather than the monsters, which truly cripples humanity. Only by conquering their own terror can they ever hope to defeat the demons. Now Arlen must risk leaving the safety of his wards to discover a different path, and offer humanity a last, fleeting chance of survival.

Voyager has also published the rest of the series (to-date): THE DESERT SPEAR, THE DAYLIGHT WAR and THE SKULL THRONE, as well as the novellas THE GREAT BAZAAR AND BRAYAN’S GOLD and MESSENGER’S LEGACY. The fifth novel in the series, THE CORE, is tentatively scheduled for a late-2017 release.
