The Painted Man

The Painted Man

The Painted Man (known as The Warded Man in the United States) is a fantasy novel written by Peter V Brett and published by Voyager Books in 2008. It is the first in a series called The Demon Trilogy.

Plot

The world is plagued by demons who live in the earth's core ("corelings") and rise at night to kill and feast on humanity. Protected only by fragile magical inscriptions ("wards") the last vestiges of humankind have been reduced to living in fear, scattered in distant villages at a medieval level of technology.

Corelings

The demons in the book are held by legend to reside in the Earth's core and are associated with the elements. They have magical abilities such as rapid healing, enhanced strength, and poisonous talons. Although they all attack humans, they can attack each other, particularly corelings that are wounded.

* Fire demons are small, cat-like creatures that can spit fire
* Wood demons are tall and spindly and are antagonistic to fire demons
* Wind demons can fly and resemble dragons
* Rock demons are extremely large and powerful
* Water demons
* Sand demons
