Man's Best Friend Comedy Horror Sci-Fi. Delirium In her human hand she now holds a gun, ugly and battered and ready to kill. The Vagrant freezes.
There is little cover in the cramped room and less time to think. He spins to the left, blade pointed downwards, silver wings reaching to protect his face.
The desk crashes to the floor, once, twice. Neither half touches the Vagrant. There is a flurry of movement, a mix of arms and sword, of man and half-breed, of bestial grunts and sharp song.
When it is over, the Overseer lies prostrate and limbless, a grotesque pear-shape. He plunges the sword deep into her.
Fire burns blue, devouring the corpse greedily, until only charred chunks remain. An eye closes. It is remarkable!

It flows well, relaying the dystopian atmosphere of the world perfectly, but it requires you to pay attention.
The POV borders on omniscient I thought it was neat, something a little different, and for me it works well for the story this book is trying to tell.
Don't read it for the plot. Read it for the rich detail Not every day do I read a book that, in my mind, hits all the right spots.
Read it for the rich detail of the world, the exploration, and the mystery surrounding The Vagrant and the baby.
I've probably missed a lot because I speed-read, and I intend to go back and buy this book which I borrowed from the library so I can read it again.
Not for everyone, but definitely well-crafted. An excellent read. View 2 comments. Apr 21, Liam Degnan rated it liked it.
This book was a HUGE mixed bag for me, because a lot of the elements were so good, but other elements were just plain boring and not very well presented at all.
It reminded me an awful lot of The Road , but again, certain elements I enjoyed more than The Road, other elements fell completely flat.
This book brings us into a world where the sun has literally been split in two. Two smaller suns now orbit each other, one red, and one white.
I'm not sure how this happened, but it did. Ther 2. There was some kind of breach in reality, that caused demonic forces to be unleashed upon the world, bringing with it a Taint that mutated and distorted much of humanity.
And then we have the Vagrant himself. Nameless, wordless, carrying nothing but a baby and a sword. He is a man on a mission, though it is not clear what that mission is until roughly halfway through the book.
Along the way he acquires a few other companions: a goat who is almost a kind of comic-relief , a man named Harm who befriends the Vagrant and helps take care of the baby , and the Hammer who is a kind of female demonic-creature-thing.
The characterization, the concept, and the dark ambiance of the world is really, really fascinating. Things I loved: 1. The relationships between The Vagrant, the baby, Harm, and the Hammer are just so good.
I kid you not, at times I felt like I was going to cry while reading certain interactions, because there is a deep-seated goodness in each of these characters that gets brought out in the dialogue.
This might seem like a GrimDark novel, but it really isn't. The Vagrant is as noble and heroic as any character you could read about, and there are no gray lines between right and wrong.
The darkness here comes from the world itself, not from the protagonist or supporting characters. The prose, though admittedly a little odd and minimalistic, actually enhanced this book for me.
Many people might take issue with it, but I'm not one of those people. I really enjoyed that aspect of this book. Conceptually, the idea for this book is something I love, and was immediately drawn to.
Just look at the cover. The name, the cover, the concept behind the book, the environment created in the story - I loved it even before I started reading.
Something about a lone, wordless Vagrant even the word sounds cool , carrying nothing but a sword and a baby, really drew me in.
Things I hated: Sooooo, why am I giving this 2. Everything I've said thus far makes it sound like a five star read! It should be a five star read, right?
Yeah, trust me, I am as disappointed as anybody, because this should have and could have easily been worth five stars.
But for as many elements as were amazing, there were an equal number of elements that dragged the book down. Here's a few major issues I had: The story was told from both a "microscope" perspective and a "telescope" perspective, which almost never works.
Here's what I mean by that. Rather than using multiple POV's, the book was told from the perspective of the Vagrant, but then at random points throughout the book, the story switched back to an "eight years earlier" perspective, and told the BIG picture of what happened to the world, without reference to any of the characters in the primary story.
This was a big negative because it felt almost completely disconnected from the story about the Vagrant and the baby.
And it honestly wasn't interesting at all. This part of the story was painted in really broad strokes, rather than letting us discover the world from the perspective of the Vagrant, and having these random gaps in the narrative took away from the Vagrant's story in many ways.
All at once, rather than this being a survival and lone-ranger-on-a-mission type of story, it was trying really hard to become Epic Fantasy, and it just didn't work at all.
It messed up the pacing, it took away from the parts of the book you actually cared about, and turned it into an overall boring read.
I loved the characters, but didn't feel I had enough of them. I loved the concept, but didn't find it to be well-executed. I loved the writing, but for half the book the writing was sub-par while the other half was still fantastic.
It was frustrating. It felt like a book that I loved was being shoved into a book that I hated, and that basically ruined it for me. I'd love to hear your thoughts, if you have any!
A great world where fantasy, sci-fi, urban and dystopian are all blended together. I think the people who would love this book the best are gamers.
It read like an epic quest combining demons, half-breeds that have been corrupted by a demonic pandemic, magic, modern artillery……..
The writer's style did seem choppy at first and I can see why it would put people off. I identified what it was and actually came to like it.
He would form a sentence like: The knight commander walked down the street, co A great world where fantasy, sci-fi, urban and dystopian are all blended together.
He would form a sentence like: The knight commander walked down the street, cold, eyes glancing, calculating, fast moving. The sentence itself without context doesn't really tell the story.
He would do this structure of different one word descriptors and commas one after the other. At first it was disconcerting.
After a while I actually liked how it succinctly delivered the message without being overly verbose. The thing I liked best was that mixed amongst the brutality, betrayal and greed there were acts of compassion for contrast.
There were a wide variety of unique characters including a baby and a goat which made it interesting along this dystopian setting where two distinct suns scorch the landscape.
I did find it odd and at times distracting reading The Vagrant did this or The Hammer did that or The Usurper did that over and over again.
Overall a very unique book and setting worthy of a read. Aug 11, Terence rated it liked it. A silent warrior sets out on a dangerous path to reach the Shining City.
All he carries with him is a baby, a powerful sword, and whatever meager supplies he has accumulated. Many tainted beings are searching to destroy the sword and only the man, The Vagrant, is able to protect and wield the divine weapon.
The Vagrant is a hard story to get into. First of all the title character doesn't speak. On top of that there is no internal dialogue that helps guide the story.
Information is gathered from o A silent warrior sets out on a dangerous path to reach the Shining City. Information is gathered from other characters along with flashbacks, but that's largely drips of information into a lake of a story.
The adversary in The Vagrant is rather vague. A breach has opened up in the world and the Seraph Knights along with one of the seven, Gamma, face off against the gaseous enemy that emerges from it.
They are obliterated, but Gamma manages to wound the strongest of the enemy who becomes known as the Usurper.
Before the sword can be destroyed a Seraph Knight flees with it. The best way I can describe this gaseous enemy is that it's similar to the demons from the Supernatural TV series.
Particularly early on before everyone and their mother had a demon killing blade. These gaseous enemies can possess living and dead people like the Supernatural demons.
Doing so provides the possessed with a new personality and greater strength. They can also mildly alter others in a way known as the taint.
The infected people can range from having full control of themselves to mindless pawns of the enemy.
Many are physically altered as well. Honestly I'm not sure I understand much else about what was happening in the story. The Vagrant seeks to reach the Shining City with the baby and travels from place to place doing good along the way even at the cost of ease and comfort to himself.
In the end The Vagrant is a story that took big risks with its storytelling and for me it didn't truly come together. Apr 07, The Shayne-Train rated it it was ok Shelves: dnf-cuz-not-good.
But I can't do it. I just don't care enough about the peepz or the world to keep slogging through.
Apr 22, Jokoloyo rated it it was ok. Tried-but-not-for-me borrowed the term from Liviu. After finished this novel, I see it as a first novel of a series, it reminds me of Jim Butcher's Storm Front.
But I like Storm Front better than this novel. I don't mind unfinished plots or slightly growing main characters. But the perfect character is it called Gary Stu?
If the main protagonist is not a mute, he is a perfect super hero knight defender of love and justice. For my personal taste, this novel needs more humor.
On another side, minor characters on this novel are too flat for my taste. I hope the flatness is due to introductory purpose for whole series.
I don't have issue for the setting, and I believe there could be a lot of more fantastic setting in next novels. Oct 24, Laura rated it liked it Shelves: read-in Enough to guarantee the perfect story right!
And it really is! I loved the Vagrant with his silence and good deeds. I loved his relationship with the little baby and the baby itself was absolutely charming.

Harm and the Hammer are great too! Then why the 2. Because of the writing. It was brilliant at times, the author managing to convey a myriad of emotions through a simple description of a touch or an expression.
But it felt like reading a rushed screen script at others and like a try at epic fantasy in between.
All in all, it felt choppy. Enough so to greatly diminish the entire charm of the story itself. Perhaps the next instalments of the series are better but I can't say for sure I'll be inclined to read them soon.
Feb 14, Nick Borrelli rated it liked it. Wanted to love it This is such a cool book in theory. The setting is right up my alley - a post-apocalyptic land where demons roam looking to feed on the innocent, a cool back-history, amazing secondary characters etc.
What I ultimately couldn't get past was the fact that the main character had zero lines of dialogue. At first it was kind of unique and original and then when I continued to read it became a bi Wanted to love it At first it was kind of unique and original and then when I continued to read it became a bit annoying, which then became distracted indifference.
I just didn't care anymore. Which is quite a shame because this story could have been so much more.
Maybe the second book will grab me more than this one did but I'm not rushing to crack that one open in the near future. Some people may enjoy this type of book, but it is not my style unfortunately.
Apr 18, T. Munro rated it it was amazing. Actions speak louder than words I heard the author speak at the Grim Gathering II in Bristol where he gave a short summary of his book "A one parent family in a post-demonic apocalypse.
A ragged man with a sword in one hand and a baby in the other walking a street of ruined buildings above a title set out in neon lights.
Before the first page is turned, the book is challenging expectations. There is a story line, Actions speak louder than words I heard the author speak at the Grim Gathering II in Bristol where he gave a short summary of his book "A one parent family in a post-demonic apocalypse.
There is a story line, and a back-story line. By the end the latter has converged pleasingly on former to explain all things that need explaining.
But it is the spare writing, and the exoticness of the world building that carried me along. In some ways it reminded me of the Gunslinger by Stephen King and its iconic mental image of an enigmatic hero on an unexplained journey through a blasted land.
This is a world not so much stalked as comprehensively mugged by disaster on an epic scale. On a long walk the protagonist acquires a staggering variety of both allies and enemies.
However, it is more complete and self-contained than the first instalment of the Dark Tower series. At the Grim Gathering, the author said he always had a beginning and an end in mind and a misty patch inbetween where pretty much anything could happen.
That over-arching certainty guides the Vagrant's footsteps and reassures the reader that there is purpose in the present and resolution in the future.
The world building is broad and imaginative, in that not just one but two worlds are conjured up before the reader. There is the world that was.
A world destroyed, the advanced civilisation where ships sailed in the sky and tanks like armoured trains went to war with demons, where knights still wielded swords in harmony and the mysterious power of the Seven, with their great champion Gamma, stood ready and on ceaseless and unchanging watch against invasion from the Breach.
Then there is the world that is. A world infested with entities which enslave the humans from without and within.
Creatures of chaos flood north across a now benighted continent. Their power is constrained only by infighting between their factions and the necessity of finding ways to shield themselves from the toxic environment where they have won victory.
These demons are unlike any others, creatures of essence and desire, rather than corporeal entities. More an infection than an invasion, they corrupt as much as conquer.
A taint stains the land and its people. My other reference point is a film Mad Max 2, the original road warrior.
There is that atmospheric journey through a shattered civilisation in which little islands of humanity strive to eke out some shadow of their former existence.
Broken technology is cannibalised by desperate people as the Vagrant travels North past a barren landscape of twisted plastic and metal on a mission both personal and professional.
The people have been crushed by defeat and by taint. Things that were, or could have been human, have been corrupted beyond recognition.
But still sparks of humanity and honour reside in the unlikeliest of places and can be kindled anew in a world where there is hope for all, and tears for those that fall.
The story is told in the present tense, even the backstory flashbacks. It is an approach still unusual to my old eyes.
However, I saw it done to great effect in "The Girl With All The Gifts," and here - as there - the present tense narrative lends an edgy uncertainty as we follow our hero through a tale augmented with a variety of minor points of view including a goat's uncomplicated eye.
The writing is unobtrusively good. Like Mark Lawrence's writing, Peter Newman's avoids battering you with purple prose, or savouring its cleverness in convoluted gymnastics of vocabulary.
But open a page at random and you will find lines that make you nod in appreciation. For Newman has determined that for the Vagrant, actions must perforce, speak louder than words.
Just re-read this - my first officially recorded Goodreads re-read. Just as fresh as the first read, with more time to enjoy the demonic scenery and writing Jan 02, Kaitlin rated it liked it.
This is a very unique read, and it's a series I have been wanting to start for quite a long time, but I came away from the book still feeling a bit confused, and although I liked the mystery, I wanted more explanations.
We're following a main character called The Vagrant as he carries a baby and leads a goat through the hostile lands which hunt him.

The Vagrant is a mute character, never speaking for the whole story, but managing to express his feelings to those who are perceptive through expression alone.
We aren't certain where the vagrant is from at first, or why he is carrying a baby, but as the story goes on we get more of an idea from listening to the others who interact with him, and following their guess-work.
We also get to see he's got a rather snazzy blade and some very fancy coins which come in very handy over the course of the book.
The magic of this world feels dark and twisty with creatures splitting up their essence and forcing it into other's bodies. We also have the power of the blade itself, and the taint which sweeps the land.
Behind the scenes it seems like there is a council of some kind who may be extremely magical, and they may be the ones looking out for our characters, but we discover more as the story unfolds.
Overall, what I liked about this mostly was the aloof but inspiring writing. Although this is a gloomy place to live, and our main characters seem to face many perils on their quest, it is a countryside which can be pictured because of how Newman writes.
I really liked the ominous ethereal feel, and the lack of a main character narration was also adding to this mystery.
My biggest complaint is an entirely personal one in that I really like my stories to do a bit more telling than this one did. I feel like been by the end there's still many mysteries to uncover and although I guess this may happen in later books, I feel like I needed a bit more to grasp on to in order to encourage me to go straight for book 2.
It's an interesting and certainly unique read, but I don't know if it appealed enough to my heart and soul elements, it was more like someone telling me the story of an adventure, than living through it with the characters.
It had a kind of "epic quest" vibe to it, without it being really obvious. Deliver the sword and save the world. Of course it isn't that simple.
There are many hardships faced along the way and the added complication of a baby and a incredibly stubborn goat. I loved the crossover of fantasy and sci-fi, and the creatures from the Breach were both captivating and appalling.
The narrative took a little while to get used to, but it soon became normal and I had no 4. The narrative took a little while to get used to, but it soon became normal and I had no trouble with it.
The world-building was quite good, and I loved the tech. The thing I really enjoyed was the dialogue, yes strange because the Vagrant is mute.
All the other characters fill the space with their own ideas of what he might be thinking.
It's great. Delightful debut, can't wait for book 2. Peter Newman's debut novel The Vagrant was one of my most anticipated books for the first half of the year.
Already familiar with his work on the Tea and Jeopardy podcast, I was looking forward to seeing what he would do with a longer fictional work.
When the cover was released and I spotted that baby on it, along with the blurb, I was hooked, I had to read this book. After a bit of a cold start The Vagrant made for very compelling reading.
Newman also does something interesting with the naming of his characters. The world-building was interesting too, though I had a hard time visualising distances and relative locations; I guess being spatially challenged, maps are my friends.
Usually fantasy books that seem to have such a setting, turn out to be a far, far future Earth. Not so here.
The taint the demons spread is interesting in its manifestation, as it seemed to be as much spiritual as physical. It also made the purging described later in the book interesting, if horrifying, as I wondered how much would be left of a person if they just cut everything that is tainted out.
What would that do to a survivor? Of course an interesting setting demands interesting characters and Newman hands us those in spades.
First of all there is the titular Vagrant. A mysterious figure to start out with, he remains somewhat so throughout the novel, even if we learn more and more about his past as the story goes on.
One of the things that remains unexplained is the fact that the Vagrant is mute. Yet for all that he is able to express himself eloquently anyway.
He is also a good person, sometimes despite himself, stopping to help even if he knows the smart thing to do would be to move on and let it go.
His is a pure spirit. From the first he is accompanied by a baby, who initially is only referred to as it and the baby, but who eventually grows into a personality and name of her own.
Seriously, there is nappy changing in this book, people. To feed the baby the Vagrant acquires a goat, which brings with it a whole new set of problems.
Because this goat? This goat has all of the stubbornness available to her species and then some.
She is one of my favourite things in this novel and often brings a humorous note to the narrative without descending into Disney Animal Sidekick territory.
However grim the world is, and even if the Vagrant and his companions encounter a lot of grief and suffering, there is also a lot to the narrative to generate hope.
His is an arc of redemption. During the course of the novel the friendship becomes deeper and more ingrained almost.
And if there was ever a fanfic waiting to happen, it is one exploring the depths of this relationship further.
Yet Newman turns that expectation completely on its ear by having the Vagrant and Harm befriend her and returning some of her humanity to her.
It was such a powerful arc and its conclusion was perfect, even if it broke my heart. The Vagrant is a fabulous debut for Peter Newman, one that surprised me with its voice and its setting, even if it took me a little to get used to it.
