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.

    "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

    "Fantastic Story"

    I was at the edge of my seat of most of this. Much as I loathe Renna and think she is a weak character, I just adore the others so much it doesn't even bother me.
    The only real negative is Colin Mace for me. He is really good at times but there are some really odd pauses that at times make it difficult to follow. There are also some inconsistencies regarding how he pronounces names though they still stay recognisable so it's not the worst thing.

    "One of the best I have listened to!"

    This had me laughing and crying and wanting more. The magic is startling, the fights exciting and the characters intriguing. I am going straight onto the next one.

    "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.

    "Amazing story and narration."

    From a third of the way into this audiobook I marvelled at the writing. From the previous books the author had built strong characters but I was surprised how well the author succeeded in retelling past storylines from a different character perspective and still keep the pace and fascination of the reader up.
    By the time I finished the book I was ready to go straight into the sequel whereas I often need a break from a storyline after a long book so I don't get bored. Eg the wheel of time series are great but sometimes long winded this book seems able to tell a long narrative without causing the same listener fatigue!

    The prose style is detailed, descriptive and draws you in. You get very attached to the characters and easily draw comparisons to reality.

    I've enjoyed this series more and more. I would recommend them to others. Well read and the story kept my interest through to the end. Will be listening to the fourth in the series.

    "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.

    "Good story"

    The story is good a little bit to much chopping about the thing i didn't like was the change in narrator when you listen to two books in a series with one narrator and they change it for the third book it seems wrong not that the narrator is bad it is just that you get used to character's sounding one way and when you change that it makes the book sound different
