The Great Bazaar and Brayan's Gold

The Great Bazaar & Brayan's Gold - Peter V Brett
Oh, so that's what all the fuss is about with Peter V. Brett. The Warded Man has been on my radar for some time; I have it, somewhere, but somehow never cracked it open.

I certainly will now. This pair of novellas (with extras) was an excellent introduction and inducement. I absolutely look forward to more of this world and of Arlen, Brett's hero. The writing was beautifully, deceptively simple and straightforward – it felt like a solid old-fashioned fantasy, and I mean that as a high compliment. Vivid settings, gripping adventure, strong characters, a truly marvelous and unique concept, and a sense of humor – what's not to love?

I'm actually really happy that this was the first Brett book I've read. It will serve very nicely as a gateway drug.

I received the ARC from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review – which is this, with thanks.
