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 and killing humanity 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 anyone has been able to survive.
A handful of Messengers brave the night to keep the lines of communication open among the increasingly isolated populace. But there was a time when the demons were not so bold. A time when wards did more than hold the demons at bay: They allowed man to fight back, and to win.
Messenger Arlen Bales will search anywhere, dare anything, to return this magic to the world. Abban, a merchant in the Great Bazaar of Krasia, purports to sell everything a man’s heart could desire, including, perhaps, the key to Arlen’s quest.

Loved the Warded Man, but this isn't worth $10
While I love this series, this shouldn't be sold for $10. It is a short excerpt that really has little going for it.
It is entertaining for a fan of the series, but don't expect much.
Filling in the details
I have already recommended it to everyone I know, especially if they have already had the pleasure to read 'The Warded Man' and/or 'The Desert Spear.' Although I agree with the author that it is not necessary to the worth of the series itself, 'The Great Bazaar' provides intriguing background information and a deeper understanding of Arlen's character and Abban's resourcefulness.
Pete Bradbury's versatility of voice is remarkable. Although he doesn't seem to change his voice at all, he does change the timber so that the listener has no trouble distinguishing one character from the next- important when there is no visual que.
I would definitely recommend adding this title to your Peter V. Brett collection.
