Disfruto de Savannah. Pero el final fue frustrante porque ahora tengo que esperar ansiosamente el próximo libro de la serie.
La tercera entrega de lo que se ha convertido en mi serie de misterio favorita.
Muy divertido con una organización increíblemente creativa. A veces fue un poco largo, pero en general, me quito el sombrero ante Heller.
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 way and the partitioning of them into the night, combined with the system of wards, really works to create a very interesting dynamic. The main character (first introduce, driving force) is Arlen and although he's a 'farm-boy-rises-to-hero' he manages to overcome the trope and be an interesting character, primarily through his combination inventiveness, down-to-earth morality, and bravery. The other point-of-view characters are also engaging and offer complete a diverse set of windows onto the world Brett's made for us. The plot works too. Ostensibly the book is about defeating (or surviving) the demon threat, and it has more of that in this first book than the later ones, but even here the politics and character interactions are a major focus. Brett gives us a complex world full of interesting people, and the demons act as a constant source of pressure to drive the characters to extremes. In many ways The Warded Man is old school fantasy, but it's written in a modern style that I found refreshing. A really good read. .
