NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLERWith The Warded Man and The Desert Spear, Peter V. Brett surged to the front rank of contemporary fantasy, standing alongside giants in the field such as George R. R. Martin, Robert Jordan, and Terry Brooks. The Daylight War, the eagerly anticipated third volume in Brett’s internationally bestselling Demon Cycle, continues the epic tale of humanity’s last stand against an army of demons that rise each night to prey on mankind.   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.   Arlen Bales was once an ordinary man, but now he has become something more—the Warded Man, tattooed with eldritch wards so powerful they make him a match for any demon. Arlen denies he is the Deliverer at every turn, but the more he tries to be one with the common folk, the more fervently they believe. Many would follow him, but Arlen’s path threatens to lead to a dark place he alone can travel to, and from which there may be no returning.   The only one with hope of keeping Arlen in the world of men, or joining him in his descent into the world of demons, is Renna Tanner, a fierce young woman in danger of losing herself to the power of demon magic.   Ahmann Jardir has forged the warlike desert tribes of Krasia into a demon-killing army and proclaimed himself Shar’Dama Ka, the Deliverer. He carries ancient weapons—a spear and a crown—that give credence to his claim, and already vast swaths of the green lands bow to his control.   But Jardir did not come to power on his own. His rise was engineered by his First Wife, Inevera, a cunning and powerful priestess whose formidable demon bone magic gives her the ability to glimpse the future. Inevera’s motives and past are shrouded in mystery, and even Jardir does not entirely trust her.   Once Arlen and Jardir were as close as brothers. Now they are the bitterest of rivals. As humanity’s enemies rise, the only two men capable of defeating them are divided against each other by the most deadly demons of all—those lurking in the human heart.Praise for The Daylight War   “[Peter V. Brett is] at the top of his game. I give this my highest recommendation.”—Tor.com   “[Brett] confirms his place among epic fantasy’s pantheon of greats amid the likes of George R. R. Martin, Steven Erikson, and Robert Jordan.”—Fantasy Book Critic   “Brett’s prose and flow remain virtually flawless, providing for a smooth read during which you don’t feel guilty for skipping two meals so you can lie on the couch and keep reading.”—Fixed on Fantasy   “The best book yet in The Demon Cycle. If you are looking for a great series, look no further.”—Roqoo Depot   “After the phenomenal success of both The Warded Man and The Desert Spear, I was tentative about The Daylight War; surely it couldn’t get much better? Well, I was wrong. . . . This will be a strong contender for one of the best books of the year, even this early on.”—Jet Black Ink   “Brett has his hooks in me and I want more of The Demon Cycle.”—BestFantasyBooks.com

4.5 Culture Clash
Peter V. Bretts „Demon Cycle“ ist eine dieser Reihen, bei denen ich mich absichtlich stark zurückhalte. Als ich den Mehrteiler 2015 begann, wusste ich nicht, dass der finale fünfte Band „The Core“ erst zwei Jahre später im September 2017 erscheinen würde. Berauscht las ich die ersten beiden Bände, „...

3.0
The Daylight War was disappointing to me, especially after the second book, The Demon Spear was so well done. The second book laid the groundwork of a religious war between the two nations just so they both could fight a common enemy, the demons. Unfortunately instead of a war the author brought mor...

1.5 The Daylight War (audio book)
Book Three of the DEMON CYCLE - a series that started so promisingly with The Warded Man - commences 33 years prior to the current time line, and proceeds to spend altogether way too much time detailing the backstory of a previously middling character whom I had little to no interest in. Sadly, thin...

3.0 REVIEW: The Daylight War (The Demon Cycle #3) by Peter V. Brett
The third book of the Demon Cycle. Just like in the last book, we are given a new point of view (Inerva) and given the play by play on her early life. This time it works out much better, however. We don't really know much about her to begin with from the first two books and Brett seems to have lea...

4.0 THE DAYLIGHT WAR BY: PETER V. BRETT
The Daylight War is book 3 in The Demon Cycle series. I love this series. It is truly epic fantasy at it's best. Mr. Brett is am amazingly talented story teller. Beyond even the incredible fantasy element, the characters he writes are so multidimensional. He has proven to be a master at manipulation...
