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.
Humanity is fighting back. Although the night still belongs to the demons that arise as the sun sets, new wards and weapons are giving those willing to fight in the darkness a chance to retaliate against their core-spawned enemies.
But, as humanity is about to learn, not all monsters are confined to the dark.
Civil war ravages the north and south, battles fought between those who should be working together. It is up to Arlen – the Painted Man – and Jardir – the self-proclaimed Shar’Dama Ka, the Deliverer – to put aside their differences and bring their people to terms if they are to have any chance of saving their civilisation from demon-rule.
I really liked The Painted Man (The Demon Cycle, #1), and The Desert Spear (The Demon Cycle, #2) is very high on my to read list. I really want to get a copy of The Daylight War when it comes out! I requested it on NetGalley (Yes! It’s on NG!) and I hope I get approved. This is one of the most lovingly crafted, expansive, epic worlds I have ever read about, and the characters are brilliant! I’m using the US cover since the UK cover isn’t out yet, but I’m sure it’ll be just as pretty.
