Barren Lib/E (Compact Disc)
Publication Date: September 25, 2018
New York Times bestselling author Peter V. Brett returns to his groundbreaking Demon Cycle series with this enthralling novella--the latest story set in his much-loved fantasy world.
Each night, the world is overrun by bloodthirsty demons. For centuries, humanity survived only by hiding behind defensive wards--magical symbols with the power to repel the demons. Now, the rediscovery of long-forgotten combat wards has given them the magic they need to fight back.
In Tibbet's Brook, the fighting wards have brought change, but the factions and grudges of a troubled past remain. Selia Square, the woman they call Barren, has long been the force that holds the Brook together. As a terrifying new threat emerges, she rallies her people once again.
But Selia has a past of her own. And in a small community the personal and the political can never be divided. If Tibbet's Brook is to survive, Selia must uncover memories she has buried deep--the woman she once was, the woman she once loved--and retell their story.
