Posted by Karen

Hey everyone! Last week we got a 5 star review from cupcakesandmachetes of The Warded Man:

They’re definitely not shy about speaking their mind about books, so the glowing review really hits home! Here’s an excerpt.

The back story and character progression is phenomenal. It is what I loved the most about the book. The plot line and world-building are fantastic as well but it was the characters that really drew me in. A strong female character was a winning point as well.

You can check out the full review here! Aside from some character descriptions, it’s spoiler-free.

Fanart: Mind Demon Tattoo!

Posted by Karen

Hey everyone! Check out Krzysztof Blonski’s frikken mind-blowing mind demon tattoo. Seriously, this thing is wicked cool:


Some of you might recognize the art as Dominik Broniek’s (illustrator for the Polish translation of The Demon Cycle). There have been other tattoos done of his official artwork, but this is definitely a good one. I especially love how the tattoo artist really detailed the brains. Gross <3

As always, Dominik’s work is a definite must-see. You can check him out on Deviantart and Facebook. Along with illustrations for Peat, he’s also done a whole bunch of book covers and independent projects.

The Polish edition of The Warded man is split into two parts. You can get them from Fabryka Slow here and here.

Taiwanese Daylight War Review

Posted by Karen

Hey everyone! A little while ago we got a glowing review of the Taiwanese version of Daylight War.


There are relatively few spoilers, so feel free to check out the whole review.

One question in the review I can answer here– yes, there are more books in the series. Five, to be specific. After that, well… Peat has made a whole post on the latest info on The Demon Cycle.

You can get your copy of The Daylight War here!

Demon Cycle Tweets #1

Posted by Karen

Hey everyone! One of my favorite things about my job is checking people’s tweets. I love looking through to see what people say about the Demon Cycle, so today, I’m going to share a few:

The next in line arrived today! 😀 Can’t wait to get started on it now 🙂 – dylz1999


Just finished ‘The Desert Spear’ () – normally I’d wait for but, well, that was bloody good wasn’t it? – Chris


Our next one isn’t a tweet since it was sent via email, but I’m including it anyway. This beautiful poem was sent in on February 8th:


I know this is a working address 🙂 So I’m sending my best wishes here for Peter on his birthday -István


Reading the warded man by for the third time. every time i’ve read series i’m blown away by the stunning depth and simplicity -michaelpass

My cat stole my book… again. He loves to read. -gwitter_cat


The Demon Cycle could well be one of the best book series ever! is magnificent throughout -CodexFiction


A big shout-out to everyone for tweeting about The Demon Cycle! Without you guys spreading the word, Arlen and the gang would be a trilogy left to collect dust. It’s because of fans like you that we’re getting a quintet (with more to come)!

Seriously. Thanks.

I’ll be putting together more posts like this as tweets come in. Get tweeting for a chance for yours to appear in the next one!

In the meantime, check out the Warding For Treasure Contest going on right now.

Lucky Klats

Posted by Karen

Hey everyone! We’ve had warded coins in the works for awhile now and we’re HELLA excited.

These warded Hollow County klats are made of wood with protective wards carefully etched around the perimeter.

Look familiar? Keen-eyed fans might recognize the image of Leesha in the center as Malgorzata’s entry to the Favorite Character Contest Peat held back in 2013.

Leesha by M from Poland

That’s right, this pic went from fanart to official production. Pretty cool, huh? Warded klats are currently in production from Shire Post Mint and will be available soon!

That being said, there IS a way to get your hands on one early…

For a chance to win a lucky klat, check out the Warding For Treasure Contest! Third place winners get first crack at them, hot off the press, before they’re available to the general public.

Get warding and good luck!
