Synopsis

As darkness falls after sunset, the corelings rise—demons who possess supernatural powers and burn with a consuming hatred of humanity. For hundreds of years the demons have terrorized the night, slowly culling the human herd that shelters behind magical wards—symbols of power whose origins are lost in myth and whose protection is terrifyingly fragile. It was not always this way. Once, men and women battled the corelings on equal terms, but those days are gone. Night by night the demons grow stronger, while human numbers dwindle under their relentless assault. Now, with hope for the future fading, three young survivors of vicious demon attacks will dare the impossible, stepping beyond the crumbling safety of the wards to risk everything in a desperate quest to regain the secrets of the past. Together, they will stand against the night.

A fun fantasy story centering on magical wards and the demons they certain. Well written with good action sequences and interesting characters. The book ends on a high note and makes you want the next book immediately.

Confusion in e begging

It was rather confusing initially. But as e book went on, it became easier to understand his style of writing. Just got book 2. Hopefully its better.

Good start of a series
October 23rd, 2013
Couple of jarring breaks e.g. How the warded man came to survive the desert n became a walking tattoo; how quickly the herb gatherer became a woman; sudden betrayal of the Desert Spear. While the transitions could have been smoothened, it's a good opener on the bigger view.

Awesome book, but I didn't care too much about the other characters. The Warded Man/Arlen kills it, literally
