The Painted Man by Peter V Brett
This book had me enthralled from the start. The author creates a fantastic world in the mind of the reader. It is one where demons rule the night and mankind cower behind symbols in the hope of safety. From this world of fear comes one man whose thirst for knowledge could mean an end to the fear. Would you turn and face your fear or would you run.
The author weaves three tales into a masterful story that leaves you wanting more. I for one will be coming back for a second helping.
