    First, the unthinkable: a security breach at a secret U.S. government facility unleashes the monstrous product of a chilling military experiment. Then, the unspeakable: a night of chaos and carnage gives way to sunrise on a nation, and ultimately a world, forever altered. All that remains for the stunned survivors is the long fight ahead and a future ruled by fear—of darkness, of death, of a fate far worse.

    This book was great, but I am betting the longer version is much better. Solid character development, with enough suspense to keep you on the edge of your seat. Not the typical Vampire garb either, which is nice.

    Peter V. Brett has won accolades from critics, fans and fellow authors alike for this riveting debut novel. The Warded Man features a world where demons stalk the night, hunting humans who have long forgotten the magic of their ancestors. But all is not lost, as some hold out hope that a savior will release humanity from the demons' terrifying reign.

    Overall

    The idea behind this book is a great concept, unfortunately it fell short for me. I had to quit listening, which I have never done, and I have listened to some stinkers.

    By the time I had given up (about 10 hours in) I didn't really care what happened to any of the characters. The book began to remind me of a Renaissance Fair. Lots of bellowing with an over-dramatic, tone applied to everything from a fight with a demon, to drinking a glass of water. At times the book felt very juvenile, with lots of sniveling. So juvenile in fact that it began to irritate me.

    If you dig the whole D&D scene, then this is the book for you. If not, stay clear.

    On a positive note, the narrator was very capable.
