Description

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.

Reviewed on 6th July 2016

A short novella from Brett's Demon Cycle series, Messenger's Legacy is the tale of a young man, the victim of a prejudiced society and a horrifying accident. It's hard to say more without spoilers.

Apparently the first chapter has previously been published on its own, and it was clear how it could work as such, but the later chapters really turn the story up a notch and develop it in a way that I wasn't expecting.

It's an interesting new look into a world that already has a lot of different views, and if, as I'm led to believe, the events of this book have an effect on later events in the main series then it's a good extra to have read.
