Description

Dear Readers,

Please note that The Great Bazaar and Other Stories is not a full length book. It contains Peter V. Brett's roughly 60 page title story, as well as a number of deleted scenes from his novel, The Warded Man.

***

Humanity has been brought to the brink of extinction. Each night, the world is overrun by demons--bloodthirsty creatures of nightmare that have been hunting and killing humanity for over 300 years. A scant few hamlets and half-starved city-states are all that remain of a once proud civilization, and it is only by hiding behind wards, ancient symbols with the power to repel the demons, that they survive. A handful of Messengers brave the night to keep the lines of communication open between the increasingly isolated populace.

But there was a time when the demons were not so bold. A time when wards did more than hold the demons at bay. They allowed man to fight back, and to win. Messenger Arlen Bales will search anywhere, dare anything, to return this magic to the world.

Abban, a merchant in the Great Bazaar of Krasia, purports to sell everything a man's heart could desire, including, perhaps, the key to Arlen's quest.

In addition to the title novelette, The Great Bazaar and Other Stories contains a number of scenes not included in The Painted Man (published in the US as The Warded Man) as well as a glossary and a grimoire, making it an essential guide to one of the most exciting epic fantasy series currently being published.

    Do not buy. Not worth your money
  • Novels were great. This is a waste of cash.

    I don't need to see someone's discarded ideas, especially when they are not finished or polished and especially when there are only two "stories" contained within a book that's supposed to be a collection of stories. Two is not a collection, especially since one of them isn't even that original. Many elements of the first story are already described in the novel. This is a cheap publisher's trick and should be avoided.
