Brett For time out of mind bloodthirsty demons have stalked the night culling the human race to scattered remnants dependent on half forgotten magics to protect them Then two heroes arose men as close as brothers yet divided by bitter betrayal Arlen Bales became known as the Warded Man tattooed head to toe with powerful magic symbols that enable him to fight demons in hand to hand combat and emerge victorious Jardir armed with magicall It has been a long journey to the core The Warded Man was already 2 years old when I read it back in 2010 while waiting for my first book to be published But these are fat complicated books full of legions of characters and engineering such wonders of many moving parts naturally takes timePeter Brett is a fine writer He can paint a scene bring a tear or a smile fascinate with imagination build worlds of believable complexity The Demon Cycle is a great work of modern fantasy an adventure well worth takingIn this series of 5 books the scope broadens steadily from the original fairly focused tale of Arlen Leesha and Rojer to one that encompasses many cities dynasties and lives Arlen the main character of book one grows rapidly in power outstripping the story in many ways and having to be relegated to the background for much of the tale while others of human dimensions pick up the struggleThe fearsome and fascinating demons become for much of the series a source of external pressure that mostly acts as a stressor for the multiple human conflicts The demons are the closing walls of the room and the show is the characters struggling with each other as their lives tighten around themIn The Core this focus doesn t shift uite as much as you might expect Though as promised in the title the war is carried to the demons At last we have a conflict worthy of Arlen Renna and Jardir s demi godlike powers and a significant thread of the novel follows them into the demon infested depths seeking the demon ueen However a good 80% of the book remains on the surface following dozens of known characters in a scattering of cities or moving between them as the final war breaks and demon armies seek to wipe mankind from the mapThere is a slight issue here for those of us whose memories might not be what they used to be Do you know what Derek s beef is with Count Bryan or remember who Mery is and what her issue with Arlen was Because these and a dozen similar uestions may arise as we bounce around from one city to the next Putting that to one side the assaults and battles are great fun to read and the various advantages reversals victories and defeats were exciting enough to sustain this reader as he waited to rejoin the core uest Because if you excuse the pun that is the core issue None of the cities are going to survive unless our heroes down below come out on top All the efforts of the wider cast of characters are essentially just delaying tactics They are holding their sandcastles as the tide rises And so while interesting to watch it s down in demon central one stop from the Core where the real action liesThere s a danger with so many characters and battlefronts that the reader s attention and attachment is diluted that the deaths and losses matter less the victories and gains too There s the danger that even in such a fat book we might spend too little time with character X or situation Y to really reconnect with them and care Brett largely offsets this with skilful writingThe core uest heats up and at the sharp end of things we re with Arlen and friends as they confront the biggest bad I won t spoil things but it s a good fight and when things in demon central conclude the book wraps up fairly uickly No LotR multiple endings forever hereNot every loose thread is tied off and there are a remarkable number of pregnancies in the book almost as if Mr Brett were breeding a cast for some kind of seuel seriesAnyway I applaud the series and congratulate PVB for bringing it all home and giving us closure I very much enjoyed the read and await with bated breath to see what he has in store for us next Join my 3 emails a year newsletter prizes
