Peter V. Brett has won rave reviews for his internationally best-selling novels, including his stunning debut, The Warded Man.
A continuation of his epic Demon Cycle series, The Daylight War features Inevera, the wife of Jadir, who took center stage in Book 2, The Desert Spear. In this heart-stopping installment, humanity continues to struggle against the demon plague - even as survivors hold out hope that the Deliverer will save them all. On the night of the new moon, the demons rise in force, seeking the deaths of two men, both of whom have the potential to become the fabled Deliverer, the man prophesied to reunite the scattered remnants of humanity in a final push to destroy the demon corelings once and for all.

What in The Core happened?
What happened, Mr. Brett???
First, I must say that I have been counting the days (and weeks, and months) until this release. The other two books, I’ve read and listened to MANY times each. I love the characters, the action, the whole concept of the demons and wards. I was even so starved for the story that I listened intently to the Krasian’s stories, rather than just tolerating them as a means to an end (namely, getting back to Cutter’s Hollow).
I’ve sung the praises of these books to anyone who’ll listen.
So when I saw that Audible had The Daylight War nearly two weeks early, I thought either Christmas came late, or there was some mistake.
And then I WISHED it’d been a mistake. Thank God they used Pete Bradbury again, because that’s the only thing that got me through the **tedium** of the first half of the book. The interactions between Arlon and Rena were especially painful. Not only did I feel like I was back in junior high, but Mr. Brett made sure I REALLY understood the point he was trying to convey about Arlon’s new aww shucks, Regular Joe demeanor (another huge disappointment) and Rena’s neediness. Even Leesha’s parts felt weak. There were many things he glossed over (Leesha and the duke), while belaboring the broader points of Arlon’s and Rena’s insipid interactions.
Finally, around the half-way mark, we get some action, and things progress. We have battles, thank the creator. And then, after all that, the book ends with a cliffhanger?! Ugh.
In summary: yes, you should get the book. It’s got some good content, even if it takes its sweet time getting there. But PLEASE don’t judge the series by this book. And, Mr. Brett, PLEASE write the fourth book as well as you wrote the first two.
