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.

About Peter V. Brett

Peter went to the University at Buffalo, where he studied Dungeons & Dragons, fencing, and girls. Following college, he spent eight months managing a comic shop and pondering what to do with his life. He then went into medical publishing, but contented himself with writing books he never hoped to sell. In June of 2007, his hard work and perseverance paid off, as he sold his 4th novel, `The Painted Man`. He lives in Brooklyn NY with his wife Dani and cat, Jinx.

Our customer reviews

This is the 3rd book in the series and a worthy sequel to The Warded Man and The Desert Spear. If you are interested in reading these books, definitely start with the first in the series as the plots and settings are reasonably complex. Brett is an excellent storyteller; it's not just magic, glamour and action, his characters are compelling and the story worthwhile. more
