    "Neww stuff and a new perspective."

    I was a little weirded out to see the perspective of the basic bad guy for the first third of the book, but I really liked this book. I am really looking forward the third book. We learned more about the demons and the effects of the wards on humans and the healer woman seems to keep playing a game of musical love interests changing with every location by being interested in guys who are crap and ignoring quality guys, oh and being attracted to guys who can't handle a relationship at the current time (warded man). Overall a good book with an ending I didn't expect.

    "Quite impressive!!"

    Well written, well paced, well worth every moment.

    All the people who gave this a bad review think a little too much of their own opinions. (Ernie)
    It's a fabulous book. Opens up The Warded Man's initial world, and makes it even more vast.

    Loved it!!!! Can't wait for book 4.

    "A rare gem"

    I could not stop listening to this one, It's just as good as the first and really couldn't get any better. I sift through all the mediocre audio books here in search of a great tale like this. You won't be disappointed.

    "Well...J.R.R. Tolkien he is not..."

    Peter V. Brett deserves all the praises he's received from his first novel: the Warded Man.
    His work is unique and well thought out. I purchased both books and enjoyed them equally well. But...as an author, it was very evident to me that the story was written by a man for men. Sorry.
    No true offense meant to the author or fans, but read the books again before you lambaste me and my review.
    Recently I've purchased many books penned by men and have noticed one similarity: the menfolk cannot write romance.
    Or sex scenes.
    Sorry.
    Really, I like the books and the characters, but the romantic elements are lacking. I'm left cold, feeling like I'd just had a one night stand with a typical jock jackass who was more interested in making notches on his belt than connecting with me on an emotional level. Hmm, but then Arlen was ready to commit at the end of the second book, wasn't he?
    My suggestion? If you're planning to write strong romantic elements into the series then I suggest you consult with a member of the RWA (Romance Writers of America) to make sure you get it right.

    "Good story, but too hard of an edge for my tastes"

    This one was good, but there was a lot of needless junk in it. Too much hard sexual references and details for my tastes. The Author could have easily gotten the same ideas across without going into so much details. But the story and action were both good aside from the above caveats.
