9780007276196: The Daylight War (Demon Cycle 3)

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.

Review:

‘The most significant and cinematic fantasy epic since The Lord of the Rings. Inspired, compelling, and totally addictive!’
Paul W. S. Anderson, director of Resident Evil: Afterlife

‘Peter V. Brett is one of my favorite new authors’
Patrick Rothfuss, New York Times bestselling author of The Name of the Wind

'I enjoyed The Painted Man immensely. Action and suspense all the way.'
Terry Brooks

‘An absolute masterpiece… literally unputdownable, and deserves to be the next Big Thing in dark fantasy.'
www.ozhorrorscope.com.

'A very accomplished debut fantasy. Recommended.'
www.sfrevu.com.

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 New York City.
