Never mind variety, anticipation is the true spice of life and is something Peter V. Brett really knows how to inspire. We waited with baited breath for the third instalment of Brett’s Demon Cycle, and true to form he rewarded his fans generously for their patience. The Daylight War goes above and beyond the brilliance […]

With the impending release of Peter V. Brett’s The Daylight War, the latest installment of his Demon Cycle, I thought the time was ripe to have a look back at where it all started, with a fresh review of The Painted Man. I read this book for the first time recently and if it lay […]

Judge A Book By Its Cover – An Interview with Larry Rostant

Judge A Book By Its Cover – An Interview with Larry Rostant 

I never intended to buy The Painted Man by Peter V. Brett. I was walking through a bookshop intent on picking up something else, most probably a crime novel. I hadn’t read a fantasy novel in a long time. But the cover caught my eye and stopped me in my tracks. The hooded man glared […]

Brayan’s Gold by Peter V.Brett

Brayan’s Gold by Peter V.Brett

The Painted Man and The Desert Spear are among my favourite books ever written. Not only is the story absolutely brilliant, but Peter V. Brett’s writing is just simply, what I like to call: readable. Creating a fantasy world that drags you in and has an atmosphere that terrifies you and yet keeps you gripped […]
