I’ve had the first of Peter V. Brett’s Demon Cycle books recommended to me on reddit’s r/fantasy more than once. For years fellow redditors would namedrop the Demon Cycle; I must’ve had the first three books on my to-read list for well over three-four years. When I saw it on one of Audible’s 2-for-1 deals, I thought to myself, “At last, I will reveal myself to Peter V. Brett. At last, I will have my revenge.” Then I listened through seventeen hours of godly narration by Colin Mace and I have to say, I am well pleased with The Warded Man indeed.
Rating: 4.5/5 stars
A finale that goes beyond my expectations; The Core is a marvelous conclusion to the long-running Demon Cycle series that would make the Jongleurs sing praises.
