Book Description

25 April 2013 Demon Cycle Novel

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.

More About the Author

Peter went to the University at Buffalo, where he studied Dungeons & Dragons, fencing, and girls. Somehow, he also managed to earn a (totally useful!) Bachelor of Arts degree in English with a minor in Art History in 1995.

Following college, Peter spent approximately 8 months managing a comic shop and pondering what to do with his life. He then went into medical publishing, squandering ten years of his physical prime sitting in a cubicle. He contented himself with writing books he never hoped to sell.

In June of 2007, his hard work and perseverance paid off, as he sold his 4th novel, THE PAINTED MAN, and in October of 2007, he left his day job to pursue writing full time.
He lives in Brooklyn NY with his wife Dani and two cats, Jinx and Max Powers.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another brilliant piece of work by Mr Brett 24 Jun 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Well, I have read both of the main novels to the series (The Painted Man and The Desert Spear) and I had read THe Great Bazaar but was mostly anticipating Brayan's Gold.

I will start with The Great Bazaar, this is a fantastic little novella, a little shorter than I would have liked but still brilliant. It answers a coupleof questions people may have been wondering from The Painted Man as well as exploring Arlen a little more in depth. I thought it an absolutely fantastic read and would recomend anybody who is a fan of the series to read this, and if you're not, then you're on Amazon so serch The Painted Man and get it! Anybody who has not read this series is seriously missing out!

Onto Brayan's Gold, now this story was absolutely brilliant, The Great Bazaar was good but this eclipses it in my opinion. It is a story about Arlen's first messenger run and had me so gripped I finished the whole Novella in less than two hours. Again I would have loved it to be a little longer, but then again if I had my wish it would be thousands of pages long. Another brilliant thing about Brayan's Gold is, if you haven't read any of the main books this wouldn't really spoil a great deal and would be a good read alone. It's also a lot more mild on the violence so perhaps even suitable to read to a young one who likes scary stories?

Either way, these two novellas are both fantastic and I recomend everybody to read them.

5.0 out of 5 stars Leaves me wanting more 15 Jun 2011
By barry
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I am a huge fan of the first two books and these 2 short stories are a perfect filler until the third book is released. Its great to get an insight in the life of Arlen on the road as a messenger, I would happily read a whole book based his time on the road. I disagree with the other reviewer who feels they don't add anything to the story. Its wonderful to see how Arlen develops into the man we know him as. Highly recommended, think of it as a good 'Clone wars', filling in the missing years of Arlen's journey to the Painted Man.

2.0 out of 5 stars Very disapppointed 10 Mar 2012
By David C
Format:Kindle Edition
In my opinion this adds nothing to the books. I felt very let down. A part of me thinks these were just sections of the book(s) that were edited out and it seemed a way of making some money from them. I couldn't recommend you buy them. The proper books are great though!!

Read the main books and downloaded these to kindle as an add on. Killed some time on a train journey. They are short stories all right, but add a nice bit of background to the main characters etc

5.0 out of 5 stars A great addition to an already amazing series 27 Jan 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
After having read all of the demon cycle book released to date, I thought I would buy this to fill the gap until the next addition to the series. I was not disappointed but i never thought i would be, definitely a worthy addition to the series.

5.0 out of 5 stars 2 fabulous short stories 29 Dec 2013
By JULES
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I had finished the Daylight War and was missing Arlen et al. Along came this, entertaining and stands (sort of) alone to the other Demon Cycle books. Would not be something that would appeal unless you have at least read The Painted Man.
