Book Description

24 Oct 2013 The Demon Cycle (Book 3)

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.

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.

More About the Author

Peter went to the University at Buffalo, where he studied Dungeons & Dragons, fencing, and girls. Somehow, he also managed to earn a (totally useful!) Bachelor of Arts degree in English with a minor in Art History in 1995.

Following college, Peter spent approximately 8 months managing a comic shop and pondering what to do with his life. He then went into medical publishing, squandering ten years of his physical prime sitting in a cubicle. He 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, and in October of 2007, he left his day job to pursue writing full time.
He lives in Brooklyn NY with his wife Dani and two cats, Jinx and Max Powers.

1.0 out of 5 stars boring, boring....! 8 April 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I don't think Ive ever been so disappointed with a sequel as have with one.

So I listed all of the reasons why I gave up on this book in order to write this scathing review........

......only to find most of the 1 star reviews of this book have said it all for me....

So to sum up what has already been said -

1) Some readers did not finish this book. I must admit my attention span only lasted for just over 200 pages.

2) This was just enough for me to realise that this writer seemed to be in some sort of 'holding pattern' over his own literally airport with no real intention of landing. The story meanders onwith no real progression, particularly the last few chapters that I laboured through which just seemed to be a seriously overlong description of one girls life in a religious sect. If I hear the word 'dama'ting' one more time, I think I'm going to explode!

3) I wouldn't mind this and would have laboured on if the subject matter was in any way interesting. However, it was just about as interesting as two people sharing their deitary habits on Twitter.

looking at the vast number of reviews for this book I see that most people did love it. well all I can say is that you have a stronger constitution for detail as I found it incredibly uninteresting and lacking any literally style.

1.0 out of 5 stars Wow! What a let down. 24 Feb 2014
Format:Paperback
Now anyone who has read the first 2 books will most likely ignore any review of this book and will read it and expect to enjoy it, just like I did, but what a mistake I made.

Now I loved the first book, the second not quite as much but still a strong book but this the third in the series is frankly awful.

Now I may be being unfair as I could not get past half way but its very rare for me to stop reading a book and this is the only time I can remember not finishing a book which is part of an on going series which I have already invested time into.

The main problem is the secondary character or the hero's "promised" what a charmer she is, I can not remember ever hoping a character would die as much as her. The main problem is with the terrible accent that not only she uses to butcher the English language but seems to of spread to the hero ( I don't remember him talking like this in the first book) is he aiming for American south or English southwest? whatever it is its painful and it makes the book a chore to read.

Her second problem is she is a complete *****, why would anyone put up with her? all believability goes out of the window where she is concerned because there is no way the hero of the first 2 books would shack up with her.

So yes anyone who has enjoyed the first 2 books will read this anyway but the chances are you wont read the forth book.

Format:Hardcover
I really loved the first part of this intended trilogy, now extended into 5 parts. The character development of the first two books was really good, but this book leaves a lot to be desired. There too much emphasis being placed on side kicks (or secondary characters) leaving the primary characters out, the flashbacks are painful and the entire book could have easily been done in 250 pages.

There is so much filling just to make it a big book, characters just waffle about things without moving forward. I couldn't put the first book down, the second less and the third I really considered leaving, and read it over two weeks as it was too painful.

The title of the book is (The Daylight War), for heaven's sake WHERE IS IT. The book improves in the last 4 chapters but before that the book lacks story development and progress.

Why on earth do we need to have so much childish sexuality, if I wanted sexuality I could have read 50 shades of sexuality.

I respect the writer, as his efforts in the first two books were amazing, but I seriously believe that he should go back into his previous successful methods and abandon the money making methods of making books span so many volumes, loosing most of his readers in the process. Three good selling books are far better than five
that don't sell.

I certainty am not going to buy the next book when it comes out, I'll wait till it drops in price and people have read and reviewed it.

1.0 out of 5 stars Out of the three by far the worse 3 April 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
The first two books were great so I look forward to this novel thinking it would give us closure but instead it proved to be a hard read (yup, you heard me) and I only kept on in the hope it would get better. It didn't. I'll put it this way, I enjoyed the first two books so much I've read them both several times. One read of this one was enough.

The story line is weak to non existant and the expansion of charactors is overly done. It's a formular that worked well for the first two books but keeping the same formular for this one was a mistake as he's simply run out of key people.

It's not subtle either, at the diasapointing end he's left it not only at an unfortunatly weak part of the story it's also glaringly obvious what the next part of the plot will be.

Frankly, he's lost his way and I just hope the novellas will be enough to re-kindle my enthusiasm enough to buy book 4.

Really enjoyed this book, but thought it was only a trilogy and that really can't be the end? Must be a 4th in the pipeline as the story not tied up at all.
