WhittleMama Newbie Joined Jun 24, Messages 6. I have just read this book and Loved it!!! I loved the 'flow' of the book, how he introduced all the characters! I can't really say anything more on the book only that it must be read! Brilliant artwork on the cover as well!!!
When will my book be dispatched from your warehouse?
For me when I am looking at new books to read it helps if the cover is eyecatching. Kissmequick loony. Joined Nov 12, Messages 1, Location stuff. I finished this a few weeks ago, and thought I'd pop in and see what you thought. But if you like it so much, I shall bite my lip. Suffice to say I have serious issues with this book.

I pretty much loved this book, literally could not put it down and managed to read it in a day, and yet to my horror i went to buy the sequel and found its not to be released for another few months!

Joined May 30, Messages Just finished this; It pulled me in and kept me turning the pages way later than I should have been but I kept wondering "Why hasn't someone else done this stuff in the last years? As he grows in confidence and experience Mr Brett could certainly produce something much more special in the future.

The Painted Man
The setting was the usual cod medieval reminded me of early Wheel of Time. Consequently it all drags for a while until they turn into adults. Much of it, certainly early on, read to me as though written for the YA market. Thin uncovincing and frankly irritating characterisations at times. Some of the tropes were overfamiliar; one of the cities is basically Dune meets fatwah. Good points; plenty of action, intriguing idea of the demons besieging a diminishing humanity; the Painted Man himself once he appears is an interesting creation, and the path of the future books and mission is very clear take note Mr Erikson.
With his fiddle Rojer can entrance the corelings with his music causing the corelings to follow him, anger them to rage, make them oblivious to others, or drive them away with jarring music. Rojer tries without success to teach others his skills with the fiddle. Rojer harbors strong unrequited feelings for Leesha. The novel was selected by Amazon.

The Painted Man. Brett Colin Mace. Description Creators Details The Painted Man, book one of the Demon Cycle, is a captivating and thrilling fantasy adventure, pulling the reader into a world of demons, darkness and heroes.
Eleven-year-old Arlen lives with his parents on their small farmstead. As dusk falls upon Arlen's world, a strange mist rises from the ground; a mist that promises a violent death to any foolish enough to brave the coming darkness, for hungry corelings - demons that cannot be harmed by mortal weapons - materialize from the vapours to feed on the living.
As the sun sets, people have no choice but to take shelter behind magical wards and pray that their protection holds until the creatures dissolve with the first signs of dawn. When Arlen's life is shattered by the demon plague, he is forced to see that it is fear, rather than the demons, which truly cripples humanity. Believing that there is more to his world than to live in constant fear, he must risk leaving the safety of his wards to discover a different path.
