Life isn't easy, when you live in a world known for its demon attacks. On one hand, there's constant excitement. On the other...constant danger. The attacks have gotten so frequent over the years that they've plunged humanity into a Dark Age, full of little hope and almost-definite retribution.
Corelings, the demons are called, and there is very little one can do to avoid them...except for the wards, painted on surfaces and buildings, used to drive them off. The wards, however, are fragile. The slightest disturbance can cause them to crumble. All in all, not a very effective means of protecting your dwelling.
The story follows three youths as they each follow their quest to save mankind from coreling attack. In it, there is mystery and danger, darkness and sorrow. From the temptations of a child to the bravery of a young man, one must wonder: Will they succeed, or will humanity crumble once and for all?
The Warded Man Audiobook is a thrilling coming-of-age tale that will have you wondering the entire time what's going to happen to humanity and the heroes next. Never forget: a coreling may be lurking just around the corner.
Peter V. Brett is an American fantasy author most known for his Warded Man novel series. He studied English literature and the arts at the University at Buffalo, only to spend a decade thereafter working in the pharmacy publication field. At an early age, he developed an interest in fantasy, and wrote several books before finding success with his first published novel The Warded Man.
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. Download and start listening now!
