A decent quick read that fills in a side story within the overall Demon Cycle series.

4 stars for a fun read. ( )

This is a novella to read only if you've read the first three books of the Demon Cycle series by Brett, as there are some spoilers in this story. It also introduces Briar who makes an appearance in the fourth book of the series. It's a short read but interesting enough. It could probably have made a good full sized novel, but since it's connected to an already complex and huge series, it works as it is. ( )

Diese und weitere Rezensionen findet ihr auf meinem Blog Anima Libri - Buchseele

Mit „Die Flammen der Dämmerung“ hat mich Peter V. Brett ja bitter enttäuscht, daher war ich auch sehr skeptisch gegenüber der Novelle „Das Erbe des Kuriers“. Es ist die erste Novelle des Autors, die ich gelesen habe, und überraschender- und erfreulicherweise konnte mich Peter V. Brett durchaus überzeugen.

Der Autor kehrt mit dieser Novelle zurück zu der Stärke, die er vor allem im ersten Band gezeigt hat und erzählt High Fantasy vom Feinsten, nur leider viel zu wenig davon, denn mit ihren knapp 200 Seiten ist die Novelle nicht nur unterhaltsames sondern vor allem auch kurzes Lesevergnügen.

Alles in allem konnte mich Peter V. Brett mit „Das Erbe des Kuriers“ trotz all meiner Skepsis überzeugen und dank der wirklich vielversprechenden und neugierig machenden Anspielungen auf den kommenden Band sehe ich auch diesem wieder mit deutlich größerer Begeisterung entgegen. Für alle Fans des Autors definitiv ein Muss! ( )

Book description
Haiku summary

No descriptions found.

"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 the surface 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. Briar Damaj is a boy of six in the small village of Bogton. Half Krasian, the village children call him Mudboy for his dark skin. When tragedy strikes, Briar decides the town is better off without him, fleeing into the bog with nothing but his wits and a bit of herb lore to protect him. After twenty years, Ragen Messenger has agreed to retire and pass on his route to his protg, Arlen Bales. But for all that he's earned the rest, he has no idea what to do with the rest of his life. When he learns Briar, the son of an old friend, is missing, Ragen is willing to risk any danger to bring him safely home"--from publisher's web site.… (more)
