    Story
    "I might be addicted."

    Left me craving more! Literally... That's not easy to do with a 3rd book in a series. The amount of backstory in this series would usually put me off as I -like most readers- am eager for a story to progress. But the way the author weaves the history of characters is nothing short of masterful.

    "Cliff top Ending!"

    Good series of three thus far in The Demon Cycle. Abrupt ending in book three leaves one certain there must be more coming.

    "It Really Could Have Benn Better!!"

    Really enjoyed this addition, much better than the 2nd book... but still all my points in the 2nd book still apply... too many familiar things with this world... too many....

    But liked the development of the worded man and how he is coming with things... enjoyed the development of many characters and there choices...

    The ending in this book was good... for some reason I assumed it was the last addition to the series but oh no, there will be more for sure..... wonder how things will be like next.

    Again... it could have been much much better book....

    "Felt unfinished"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    I enjoyed this book as part of the series, although it felt as though it was an unfinished part of the story. An incomplete chapter.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    As mentioned above, the book felt unfinished. It felt like a lot of filler to get to the ending.


    What about Pete Bradbury’s performance did you like?

    Very easy to listen to and to differentiate characters.


    Do you think The Daylight War needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    Yes. Absolutely. I feel like this book want supposed to stand alone. Usually in a series I like each to feel like a complete story.

    "Wow, fantasy fans must read!"
    What did you love best about The Daylight War?

    The story is so rich and detailed you feel how it intermingles with current reality as well as opens you up to more.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The story keeps you and leaves you wanting more.


    What does Pete Bradbury bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Great reader, a voice I could listen to all night.


    Any additional comments?

    For all fantasy fans this book and series is a true work of art. I can't wait to be able to finish the journey.

    Story
    "What in the Core did happen?"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    The first two books in the series are excellent though the many flashbacks are somewhat tedious and seem to be word for word from the earlier readings. I thought this to be the final book in the series and was glad for it because this book is very slow and tedious till about 3/4 through it. The characters are losing their appeal, the storyline is floundering, the magic of the new world is jaded and then it just ends. I was left with "o-k-a-y so now what and do I really want to find out?" Hopefully the next and "final" book will be shorter and have the excitement and connection to the characters as the first two books. I have thoroughly enjoyed the reader and he has done an excellent job.

    "Disappointed"

    The conclusion goes along nicely, but the ending is abrupt and leaves you wondering. Actually, it's like the Peter Brett got tired of the series and just killed off the main characters to be rid of this trilogy and on to the next.
    Between Pete Bradbury's long pauses, and Peter Brett's abrupt ending I don't thing I'll be buying any more of eithers books.
