Warded Brass Klat of Leesha Paper - The Demon Cycle
Warded Against Demon Corelings
From the bestselling Demon Cycle novels by Peter V. Brett, including The Warded Man, The Desert Spear, The Daylight War, and The Skull Throne.
These brass coins were created by Countess Leesha Paper circa 334 AR to kickstart the economy after the Krasian conquest of southern Thesa flooded Hollow County with thousands of refugees. They were paid in inexpensive pressed wooden coins called klats, which could be used as food tokens and at general stores. As the Hollow economy strengthened, brass and silver coins were added to the currency.
The coins serve the dual purpose of providing succor from demons in the night. The wards around the circumference map out a basic circle of protection, and the coins themselves, if laid in a line, will repel demon corelings.
The obverse features the likeness of Countess Paper, while the reverse depicts her crest, the mortar and pestle. Each side of the klat is framed in a rotated ward circle, each ward protecting from a different demon.

Nicely-sized coin with some weight to it. The ward symbols are intricate. I am glad that I got this.
I recently introduced my friend to the wonderful Demon Cycle and he loves it almost as much as I do, so this was the best small christmas present I could get him. He loves it and displays it proudly next to his bed.
Bought this coin for a friend who absolutely adores The Demon Cycle book series. She carries this where ever she goes now!
The items looks fantastic and I was initially surprised by the weight.
Delivery took a long time due to COVID but that is expected. Would happily purchase again
