Publisher's Summary

Continuing the impressive debut fantasy series from author Peter V. Brett, The Daylight War is book three of the "Demon Cycle", pulling the reader into a world of demons, darkness and heroes.
On the night of a new moon all shadows deepen. Humanity has thirty days to prepare for the next demon attack, but one month is scarcely enough time to train a village to defend themselves, let alone an entire continent caught in the throes of civil war.
Arlen Bales understands the coreling threat better than anyone. Born ordinary, the demon plague has shaped him into a weapon so powerful he has been given the unwanted title of saviour, and attracted the attention of deadly enemies both above and below ground.
Unlike Arlen, Ahmann Jardir embraces the title of Deliverer. His strength resides not only in the legendary relics he carries, but also in the magic wielded by his first wife, Inevera, a cunning and powerful priestess whose allegiance even Jardir cannot be certain of.
Once Arlen and Jardir were like brothers. Now they are the bitterest of rivals. As humanity's enemies prepare, the only two men capable of defeating them are divided against each other by the most deadly demons of all: those that lurk in the human heart.

Series with high quality, but...

There is a lot of characters and story uses lots of "cuts" between them in order to advance. Sometimes, the books seems too dense. Mr. Brett has this particular style, where he keeps noting how good, honorable etc. everyone is and the number of forced nudity is (to extend) comical. Other then these, the book was enjoyable!

amazing book. but missing parts in chap 24 :(

loved the book and the narrator. but was disappointed when there was some missing towards the end of chapter 24 during a very intense scene that was moment killing and confusing.

exciting and compelling

I love it. It was read well. The story in a interwoven lace of stories, that takes you on a ride where you gallop to a cliffhanger with some satisfaction. I will definitely listen again

Found the series runs out of steam.

Struggled to finish despite enjoying other books in series. Just found that this book seemed to run out of steam and my interest in the characters driftd off. Found that covering the full history of another character was tiresome.

this is good. really good.

this story is original, ties in nicely with our own time lines on history and entertains. It has bypassed the traditional boy meets girl storyline nicely too.
