Publisher's Summary

Peter V. Brett has won rave reviews for his internationally best-selling novels, including his stunning debut, The Warded Man.

A continuation of his epic Demon Cycle series, The Daylight War features Inevera, the wife of Jadir, who took center stage in Book 2, The Desert Spear. In this heart-stopping installment, humanity continues to struggle against the demon plague - even as survivors hold out hope that the Deliverer will save them all. On the night of the new moon, the demons rise in force, seeking the deaths of two men, both of whom have the potential to become the fabled Deliverer, the man prophesied to reunite the scattered remnants of humanity in a final push to destroy the demon corelings once and for all.

    "I AM NOT THE DELIVERER!!!"

    IN MY LAND THOSE WHO MEAN NO DISRESPECT, REMEMBER TO SPEAK WITH RESPECT.
    A great beginning, with lots of action and setting of mood. As the story continue there were a few moments of excitement and intelligence, but for the most part I needed to drink Cozie to get through it. Lots of talk, with lots of planning and strategy. Brett needs to take his own advice, GREAT THINGS CAN BE FOUND IN SMALL WORDS. I lost patience and interest in what was happening, The demons are no longer scary or unique, there is very little to hold my attention and certainly not for 26 hours. Just as Paul in Dune got boring when he became a worm, The Warded Man is boring as the invincible. The first book gets an A, the second a B+ and this a C. If you like the second book better then the first, then you might like this, if you liked the first book best, this is not going to excite you.

    "Entertaining characters and story line"

    As the story world continues to unfold, I am finding myself drawn deeper. The characters are not predictable, they surprise me frequently. My only complaint is the occasional "critical mass" use of terms in dialog that would be meaningless to the character. It isn't a very big flaw, just an interruption of "suspension of disbelief." I did not buy the novellas that follow this book. I hope I don't regret it. Onward to the "Skull Throne."

    "I AM NOT A HAPPY CAMPER - I DONT WANNA WAIT!!!!!!!"
    What made the experience of listening to The Daylight War the most enjoyable?

    This is one of the most exciting series I've run into in quite sometime. It's captured me in a way I was not ready for in the slightest. I am chomping at the bit to get the next installment of this series. I love the twists and turns, especially the ones you don't see coming.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Ahhhhhhhhhhhhh, I go between characters at different times. I really like Jardear sometimes, Alisha Paper sometimes, Arlen almost always lol.


    Have you listened to any of Pete Bradbury’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I haven't other than this series. I really like listening to him. He does a very good job.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I did on many levels. I've laughed in many places. I find my self talking to the characters and telling them they are silly or what I would have done. I find some of the small victories and larger ones of the characters feeling like victories of people I know. It's a very well written series for that.


    Any additional comments?

    Peter needs to hurry up with the next installment. I don't want to wait any longer! If you haven't read this series, do yourself a favor and read it. It is well worth the time the credit and the read. If you don't have a credit, pay for it. You will not regret the cost. I would whole heartedly recommend these books however you have to get them............well short of theft, go to the library instead!

    "Unbelievable story"

    Best series for me in while and I am a long time listener of audio books. Great character development, fresh, and exciting story. Although it is a long story, it kept me engaged from start to finish and it approaches the coexistence of magic and science for fiction from a different perspective which was refreshing. The writer, Brett, also did a good job capturing the emotions of each character and the people living in the various hamlets. Sometimes this is loss in a fiction book but Brett took his time walking the listener through it.

    I also loved the narrator Bradbury. He has great depth and is able to transition between characters flawlessly. Although there is romance in the story, it was done very subtly which made it easier to consume for my tastes.

    Lastly, the author has a unique ability to interweave the main story with all ancillary stories to create the great book. I highly recommend this book and suggest you listen for yourself.

    "Just draws me in and I never want to leave"

    I don't know what it is about this series that has me so hooked. It is such a strange and eerie world. But something about the characters just hooks me right in. A fantastic tale of survival filled with human fallacy, strength and weakness.

    Pete Bradbury is great with the narration. He keeps the story to a perfect pace.

    "Excellent Installment"
    If you could sum up The Daylight War in three words, what would they be?

    Worth the wait.

    I've been eagerly anticipating this novel since I finished the Desert Spear. This kind of agony is why I try not to start a series until it's completed but sometimes that can't be helped.


    What did you like best about this story?

    How Brett is able to keep the story going. The series has a pretty big cast of characters and it can be difficult to keep all of them straight, but he's doing a good job.


    Have you listened to any of Pete Bradbury’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I haven't.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    The ending gave me an extreme reaction. I raged, but for good reasons. No spoilers, but when you get to the end, remind yourself that this is only book 3 of 5. And try not to count the days until you have #4 in hand.


    Any additional comments?

    Definitely one of the more exciting and interesting fantasy series running.

    An excellent balance of characters with a thrilling plot line. The ending is quite the "cliff" hanger....

    "Best yet."

    I thought I wouldn't like this installment. I was wrong.

    Inevera's segments were short and interesting. Jardir is a more interesting character. I thought I would dislike Rena as a character, but she wasn't bad.
