Inhaltsangabe

The stunning debut fantasy novel from author Peter V. Brett. 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.Voted one of the top ten fantasy novels of 2008 by amazon.co.uk.

Sometimes there is very good reason to be afraid of the dark...Eleven-year-old Arlen lives with his parents on their small farmstead, half a day's ride from the isolated hamlet of Tibbet's Brook.

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.In the small town of Cutter's Hollow, Leesha's perfect future is destroyed by betrayal and a simple lie. Publicly shamed, she is reduced to gathering herbs and tending an old woman more fearsome than the corelings. Yet in her disgrace, she becomes the guardian of dangerous ancient knowledge.

Orphaned and crippled in a demon attack, young Rojer takes solace in mastering the musical arts of a Jongleur, only to learn that his unique talent gives him unexpected power over the night.Together, these three young people will offer humanity a last, fleeting chance of survival.

    "macht Lust auf mehr "

    Die Story hat mich schnell gefesselt und es gab kaum Passagen, die langweilig waren. Der Sprecher setzt seine Stimme vielfältig ein und erzeugt eine angenehme Atmosphäre. Lediglich beim hören mit Kopfhörern nervten seine Schluckgeräusche. Alles in allem war es ein sehr gutes Hörbuch, dass auch für Nicht-Muttersprachler leicht verständlich ist

    "Great book"

    As a big fan of complex and innovative magic systems i've really enjoyed this book Even if listening to the "side"-storylines may seem a bit tedious at first and keeping up with the allover timeline is hard in the beginning you get rewarded by experiencing a wonderful and intelligently written beginning of a promising series that kept even me with over a hundred fantasy book in my shelf thoroughly amazed.

    Geschichte
    "Very akward narrator who ruins key moments"

    Although having a pleasant voice, the narrator shows no emotions in his acting what so ever.
    This ruins many of the emotional scenes in the rather well written story.
    Wont listen to the next part only because of colin mace...
