The sun is setting on humanity. The night now belongs to voracious demons that arise as the sun sets, preying upon a dwindling population forced to cower behind ancient and half-forgotten symbols of power. These wards alone can keep the demons at bay, but legends tell of a Deliverer who once bound all mankind into a single force that defeated the demons. Those times, if they ever existed, are long past. The demons are back, and the return of the Deliverer is just another myth... or is it ?

Out of the desert rides Ahmann Jardir, who has forged the warlike desert tribes of Krasia into a demon-killing army. He has proclaimed himself Shar'Dama Ka, the Deliverer, and he carries ancient weapons that give credence to his claim. Sworn to follow the path of the first Deliverer, he has come north to bring the scattered city-states of the green lands together in a war against demonkind - wether they like it or not.

But the northerners claim their own Deliverer. His name was Arlen, but all know him now as the Painted Man : a dark, forbidding figure whose skin is tattooed with wards so powerful they make him a match for any demons. The Painted Man denies that he is the Deliverer, but his actions speak louder than words, for he teaches men and women to face their fears and stand fast against the creatures that have tormented them for centuries.

Once the Shar'Dama Ka and the Painted Man were friends, brothers in arms. But betrayal has turned them into fierce adversaries.

As old allegiances are tested and fresh alliances created, the people are ignorant of the emergence of a new breed of demon, more intelligent - and deadly - than any that have come before.

Ce deuxième tome de Peter V. Brett, qui suit The Painted Man, réunit tout ce que j'aime dans ce genre vaste qu'est la Fantasy : des héros qui se surpassent en inventivité, force, intelligence, stratégie, de l'action et des rebondissements bien sûr, un environnement toujours nouveau et surprenant, bref de quoi s'oublier pendant quelques heures dans un univers foisonnant. En français, "La lance des démons" sortira en octobre 2010, encore un peu de patience !
