Brett spins another side story (after The Great Bazaar and Other Stories) off the deliberately harsh fantasy world first .
Not in Thailand? Choose your country's store to see books available for purchase. Humanity has been brought to the brink of extinction. Each night, the world is overrun by demons—bloodthirsty creatures of nightmare that have been hunting the surface for over years. A scant few hamlets and half-starved city-states are all that remain of a once proud civilization, and it is only by hiding behind wards, ancient symbols with the power to repel the demons, that they survive. A handful of Messengers brave the night to keep the lines of communication open between the increasingly isolated populace.

Arlen is a gifted warder, and he won't live locked behind walls when there's a whole wide world to see and try to take back from the corelings.
Brayan's Gold showcases his ability to think on his feet and not be ruled by his fears, though this almost costs him his life on several occasions. The rest of the content, while entertaining, didn't entrance me like Brayan's Gold.
If you haven't started reading the Demon Cycle, this novella collection is a great place to start. May 17, Talia Colley rated it really liked it Shelves: These were interesting stories that filled in the gaps of events that were referenced but not fully described in the other books of the series. A good read for fans who want to spend a little more time in the world of Thesa. Jul 07, Kelly rated it it was amazing Shelves: Ten days on the road! The messenger he is to accompany is harder to convince, but enough gold to pay his bar tab and settle him into retirement proves to be the right price.
Arlen is an engaging hero. I enjoyed the chance revisit his character, seeing as he changes so much after his apprenticeship.
Each story in this volume is prefaced by an introduction. In introducing "The Great Bazaar", Brett explains how writing a novel is as much about what you leave out as what you put in. In a story spanning fourteen years, this is particularly important. Still, those years were obviously filled with great stories and authors love nothing more than telling stories. Abban has given Arlen the map to a deserted hamlet and a promise any pottery he finds there will bring a great price.
Arlen does find the pottery but also a type of demon he has not encountered before. Upon his return to Krasia, Arlen takes Abban to task for this and he effects surprise that Arlen has never heard of this particular type of demon. In recompense, they agree on a new exchange: Obtaining this book and map are not a matter of simple barter, however.
What makes this short novella worth the read is the opportunity to spend more time with Abban, the merchant Arlen befriends in Fort Krasia. The scenes from his point of view offer a unique insight to a culture that obviously fascinates the author as much as it does Arlen. There is also plenty of excitement. I flipped through the pages in less than an hour and immediately moved on to the other two stories included in this volume, which are both deleted scenes from The Warded Man. For me, they bridge the gap nicely between the first and second books of the series, even if the stories are all set during the time period covered by The Warded Man.
I hope Peter V. Brett is inspired to write more short adventures for Arlen and his companions. Written for SFCrowsnest.

I absolutely fell in love with the series, and have now read and reviewed all three books in the series so far.
However, fans of Abban and Leesha will also be pleased, as they each have their own short stories in this volume. My favourite was the first, the story of Arlen and the thundersticks, his first encounter with snow demons and another battle with One-Arm, the rock demon hellbent on killing him. However, it was interesting nonetheless, and something to quench the thirst until I can get my hands on the recently released fourth book.

I haven't read the Demon Cycle series - but I thought this pair of short stories would help me decide whether it was something I wanted to try.
And I do Both stories contained enough action, new worlds, demons and adventure to keep most people happy. Even though I hadn't read the series, there was enough backstory included for me to understand what was happening, who the major characters were and what was actually going on. I am definitely going to track down the series now and I do believe I am going to seriously enjoy it!
Paul ARH What a great addition to the Demon Cycle! This book is essentially two mini stories that happen during the time frame of the first book, The Warded Man , that you never really get to see because they happen during the years long gaps in that story. I admit that I read it after I had read The Daylight War , so it was kind of a shock to see Arlen in armor, but even in armor he was so I would highly suggest picking up a copy it you are a Demon Cycle fan.
If you've heard about the series and h What a great addition to the Demon Cycle! If you've heard about the series and haven't picked it up yet, I honestly don't know what you're waiting for. If you like epic fantasy, or stories about demons, or great adventures, go buy the first book! May 04, Dany rated it really liked it Shelves: Brett's a great storyteller, also a one of the best new voices in fantasy genre.

What more could you ask for? PLUS it can be enjoyed by everyone, no necessarily just for the demon cycle fans but also fantasy readers. Jun 06, Seregil of Rhiminee rated it it was amazing.

They offer an interesting glimpse into the author's rich fantasy world in which humanity has survived a demonic onslaught and where being outdoors after the sun has set is dangerous and deadly because of the demons.
I consider Peter V. Brett to be one of the best new fantasy authors, because he writes good and fluent entertainment for adult readers I've enjoyed reading his Demon Cycle novels.
This collection offers interesting entertainment to his fans and also to new readers who haven't read any of his novels yet, because the stories tell about Arlen's adventures. Here's a bit of information about the stories: Brayan's Gold: In this story Arlen is sent on the mission to the mountains where he encounters bandits and a snow demon.
The Great Bazaar: In this story Arlen visits the Krasians and finds a map of the village of Anoch Sun. This collection also contains two deleted scenes "Arlen" and "Brianne Beaten".
Both of these scenes will be of interest to fans of The Demon Cycle. Peter V. Brett is one of those talented authors who have a natural ability to hook readers with their stories. Although these novellas are shorter than novels, they easily hook and thrill many readers, because the author has created them well and writes fluently about the characters, happenings, magic and action scenes. What more could you possibly ask for in an entertaining epic fantasy?
They're stories about Arlen, and they reveal what has happened to him on his journeys. They shed some light on a few interesting things. Brett has created a fascinating fantasy world, because he writes convicingly about people, cultures and different places. I admire his ability to write believably about the world without getting stuck on too many details.
There are plenty of details in the author's novels and also in his novellas, but everything works well, because the author concentrates on moving the story forward and doesn't bore his readers with unnecessary happenings.
The author writes fascinatingly about the demons - wind demons, wood demons, clay demons, rock demons etc - and what they can do and how they try to harm people. It's great that he writes about how demons can have personal grudges against humans the One Arm rock demon in "Brayan's Gold" doesn't like Arlen, because Arlen crippled it.
I enjoyed reading about how Arlen encountered a new kind of a demon a snow demon in "Brayan's Gold", because it was a well written and thrilling scene. It's one of the best fight scenes I've ever seen in fantasy novellas. I'm sure that fans of Peter V. Brett will enjoy reading about Arlen's encounter with a snow demon. I also enjoyed reading about Abban the khaffit in "The Great Bazaar", because he's a well-created character khaffit is the lowest caste in Krasian society; khaffit are men who fail warrior training and have to take a craft.
It's great that the author writes about Abban from his own point of view, because it adds depth to the story. Another reason why I like this story is that the author writes believably about a different culture and its customs.
Characterisation and character interaction works nicely in both novellas. In my opinion, Peter V.
Brett writes surprisingly well about Arlen and Abban and pays attention to their characteristics and traits. Both of them are fascinating characters and it's enjoyable to read about their deeds. This collection has Krasian Dictionary, which is useful to readers, because it allows readers to check words and terms. The Ward Grimoire is also useful to many readers, because it contains information about the different kind of wards.
If you've never read anything by Peter V. Brett, reading these novellas is an excellent way to test whether you like his writing style and stories or not. I think that most new readers will find these stories intriguing, because they're good and entertaining stories for fantasy readers.
If you happen to find these stories interesting, you shoud take a look at the author's novels, because they're good fantasy novels. I give this collection strong 4. It's a must-read collection for fans of Peter V.
Brett because of its thrilling blend of traditional fantasy elements, action, magic and originality, but it'll also please newcomers who haven't read any of the author's novels. If you're looking for entertaining fantasy stories to read, you can't go wrong by reading this collection, because it offers fantasy, demons, good characterisation, action and originality in one package.
Good and well written fantasy entertainment for adults! Sep 28, Margaret rated it really liked it Shelves: I am now eagerly looking forward to reading the latest and I suspect the last in the series. Peter Brett has an easy and captivating style which really makes the narrative live. Jul 16, Jasper rated it really liked it Shelves: Brett is a well known name in the fantasy world, being the author of the highly praised The Demon Cycle series. The fifth addition, The Core is set to be published in according to Goodreads.
The Great Bazaar & Brayan's Gold
In expanding his universe, Peter V. Brett has written various short stories and t originally published at: Brett has written various short stories and two of them: The Great Bazaar and Brayan's Gold have been compiled by Tachyon Publishing into an omnibus edition sharing with the names of the stories as title.
This for me was the first encounter with the Demon Cycle series and I tell you it has been a pleasant one! The first story in this omnibus is that of Brayan's Gold. The story focuses on the main protagonist of the series, Arlen Bales, who is setting his footsteps in the trade of being a messenger. Arlen is a young adult of 17 years old, who is trained by his master Curk to become a full messenger.
Messengers in the universe of Peter V. Brett are brave souls who venture long distances to deliver valuable, well it might sound boring but it's these brave souls that have to stay out at night or travel at night.
And at night, the world transforms, bringing the demons out to play. Now back to the story, so Arlen is set on a task to deliver some very explosive items to Count Brayan who uses these items in his excavation endeavors.
Again bringing stuff from point A to B is easy but not with demons and other people that wants something from you. Early on in the story Arlen is faced with troubles, not the demonkind, which he solves rather drastically. During this early encoutner it really comes to show that Arlen is a boy who sticks with his promises, it might give him a certain degree of naivete but it also with the stunt he pulls makes him very dangerous and not person you want to mess with.
Of course Arlen also has to face of with some demons, because well, he travels in the dark hours as well. In the end Arlen does make it intact to Count Brayan to deliver the good, but here again he is faced with problems of a different degree and for me it came to show that Arlen, though apprentice messenger by trade, is something much more.
It does happen later than Brayan's Gold. Here Arlen is already a bit more grown up and no longer feels like the apprentice messenger he was said to be in the first story. In this story Arlen receives a map from Abban. Abban runs a shop at the Bazaar in the desert of Krasia, and he wants Arlen to find a treasure, a very expensive and valuable piece of pottery which is said to be located in a small desert village.
The reason why Abban cant retrieve said pottery is because the town is overrun by demons and demons can only be fought with wards. So naturally Arlen will be the best suited person for this task as he knows wards and how to use them. The trek to the desert town is a tough job where Arlen faces a number of known demons to him, who he can easily outsmart.
But once in the city he stumbles upon species of demons he has never seen before and will make this task a lot harder on him. The strength for me in these two stories really are the protagonist Arlen, he is a cool guy, as I said a bit naive but when he has to do things he will make sure the job gets done, and most importantly he sticks to his guns, no matter how dire the situation is. Another thing is the part of the whole demon fighting and the bigger idea behind it.
Brett utilizes in these two stories. This short omnibus edition featuring Great Bazaar and Brayan's Gold has definitely wet my appetite for more!
Jul 07, Jessica Strider rated it it was amazing. This is a collection of 2 short stories and 2 passages that were cut from The Warded Man.
Each story has a short introduction from the author explaining either where the ideas came from or why the scene was cut. The stories were originally published as limited edition hardcovers by Subterranean Press, with this new combined edition being published in trade paperback by Tachyon Publications. The book also includes a short Krasian dictionary, which is not really necessary as all the required terms This is a collection of 2 short stories and 2 passages that were cut from The Warded Man.
But while the compensation is generous, the risks are also high: This is a fantastic story with a lot of different elements to it. If you missed the Subterranean Press editions, then this is a good time to get the stories. Mar 12, E. These were both pretty good short stores about Arlen before he became the warded Man. It was a quick read.
This book contains two short stories from the Demon Cycle series, in addition to a glossary at the end of different wards used throughout the book by Arlen, plus a short Krasian dictionary. The stories in this book take place in the same time scale as that of the first book, The Warded Man.
Both stories tell the tale of Arlen while he is on "Messenger duty" - Arlen's first overnight messenger trip is detailed in Brayan's gold, while The Great Bazaar is later in his Messenger career. Arlen is fac This book contains two short stories from the Demon Cycle series, in addition to a glossary at the end of different wards used throughout the book by Arlen, plus a short Krasian dictionary.
Arlen is faced with two extremes, the snowy mountains and the hot desert along with two new demons, snow and clay. Another great addition to the Demon Cycle series. Sep 08, Sibil rated it really liked it Shelves: I received a copy of this book in exchange of an honest review I really loved this book!
I loved to read about Arlen, about something that happened in his past, something that we cannot see in the main book. And I totally loved to read about the "born" of Arlen. Brett, you did well! You did awsome! So good to immerse myself back into the world and writing style of Peter V Brett and I just adore these quick snipits which give background details behind the original books. Highly recommended!
Jul 01, Marc rated it liked it Shelves: Does not add anything to the story, but I like getting back into this world. I enjoy it! Overall 3 out 5 Snow and Clays Corelings! Jul 08, Jana added it Shelves: Sep 18, Tony rated it it was amazing. I really enjoyed this book.
The book contains two short stories about Arlen that fit time-wise into the period of the first book, the Warded Man, though I am glad I waited til after Desert Spear to read the Great Bazaar.
The book also contains two deleted scenes from the Warded Man, one about Arlen and one about Leesha. The two short stories were pure action and excitement, showing Arlen in the days he wo I really enjoyed this book. The two short stories were pure action and excitement, showing Arlen in the days he worked as a Messenger before he found the Spear of Kaji.
When I read the Warded Man I remember feeling like I had missed out on a lot of Arlen's development as he skipped from a boy suddenly to an invincible and haunted demon warrior. I would've loved to have more of these stories and more exploration of the world before that first book ended. Arlen took time to explore much of the world and many ruins, but we as readers missed out.
These two stories give an exciting view into some of that part of Arlen's life. The mountain setting of Brayan's Gold was especially new and refreshing.
The first deleted scene in this book is the original sketch of Arlen written by Peter Brett long before the Warded Man was written. He explains that he wanted to include it in the Warded Man but was convinced not to. I am glad it was not included, because while it's charming in a fairy-tale sort of way, the voice and mood of the passage is mismatched with the opening of the Warded Man, and a lot of information that was allowed to develop organically in the Warded Man here in this passage seems rushed and blunt.
It's an interesting glimpse of Arlen's childhood, but I believe it's good that it's presented separately here in this book. The last deleted scene in this book is a story of Leesha and Brianne which I also really enjoyed. The scene shows us a little more of these characters and the relationship between them, set again in that rich Thesan hamlet setting, and it shows a bit of Leesha's strength growing as she apprenticed to Bruna.
Brett wrote that he cut the passage because the Warded Man was already 3, words, which I thought was unfortunate. I think I would've appreciated the extra detail.
Overall, after reading through a rough start in Desert Spear, reading this book left me looking excitedly towards Daylight War and the rest of the series. Truth be told, I would probably never have picked this book up if it hadn't been in the library. Not that I wasn't interested - additional stories from one of my favourite book series in recent years? Yes please! I just didn't think that two short extras for a story I'd already finished were worth buying above all the other books I was excited to read.
And honestly? I stand by that assessment now. They ce Truth be told, I would probably never have picked this book up if it hadn't been in the library. They certainly fill in a few gaps - I now know the background to Arlen's acquaintance with Derek and Stasy, and I know the specifics of how Arlen got his hands on the map to Anoch Sun.
A scant few hamlets and half-starved city-states are all that remain of a once proud civilization, and it is only by hiding behind wards, ancient symbols with the power to repel the demons, that they survive. A handful of Messengers brave the night to keep the lines of communication open between the increasingly isolated populace. Arlen Bales is seventeen, an apprentice Messenger in brand new armor, about to go out for the first time alongside a trained Messenger on a simple overnight trip.
