The Great Bazaar and Brayan's Gold product reviews

Two exciting short stories set in the engrossing world of The Demon Cycle from bestselling fantasy author Peter V. Brett.

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 and killing humanity for over 300 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. But there was a time when the demons were not so bold. A time when wards did more than hold the demons at bay. They allowed man to fight back, and to win. Messenger Arlen Bales will search anywhere, dare anything, to return this magic to the world. Abban, a merchant in the Great Bazaar of Krasia, purports to sell everything a man's heart could desire, including, perhaps, the key to Arlen's quest.

The Great Bazaar and Brayan's Gold is the essential addition to one of the most exciting epic fantasy series currently being published.

When I got this book, I thought that it was just two short stories, but upon reading the blurb in the inside I found out that these two stories are in fact, based in the world of a book series.

Brayan's Gold tells of Arlen's (the main character in the book series) first mission, the first time he has to spend more than two nights outside since his perilous journey to Miln. There's a great deal of information packed into this one story, which is great for someone new to this world and means you aren't left feeling confused or the odd one out. This is a fun read and done well enough that I am interested in this series.

The second story felt far more linked to the book series, so I may see if it fits in the timeline anywhere specific and read it prior to that. A little confusing at times but still a great read.

This book is a really great way for someone to read a little bit of a series and find out if they want to read the books in the series or not. Even better, is that they work well as a stand alone. Also really like that the back shows pictures of the wards with meanings.
