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 that rise each night to prey on mankind. 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. Arlen Bales was once an ordinary man, but now he has become something more-the Warded Man, tattooed with eldritch wards so powerful they make him a match for any demon. Arlen denies he is the Deliverer at every turn, but the more he tries to be one with the common folk, the more fervently they believe. Many would follow him, but Arlen's path threatens to lead to a dark place he alone can travel to, and from which there may be no returning. The only one with hope of keeping Arlen in the world of men, or joining him in his descent into the world of demons, is Renna Tanner, a fierce young woman in danger of losing herself to the power of demon magic. Ahmann Jardir has forged the warlike desert tribes of Krasia into a demon-killing army and proclaimed himself Shar'Dama Ka, the Deliverer. He carries ancient weapons-a spear and a crown-that give credence to his claim, and already vast swaths of the green lands bow to his control. But Jardir did not come to power on his own. His rise was engineered by his First Wife, Inevera, a cunning and powerful priestess whose formidable demon bone magic gives her the ability to glimpse the future. Inevera's motives and past are shrouded in mystery, and even Jardir does not entirely trust her. Once Arlen and Jardir were as close as brothers. Now they are the bitterest of rivals. As humanity's enemies rise, the only two men capable of defeating them are divided against each other by the most deadly demons of all - those lurking in the human heart.

This is a great series made even better with a fantastic narrator. I'd listen to Peter Bradbury read his grocery list.

I finished all five books in this series. I am very sorry to see the end of such a good story with great characters. I look forward to other books by the same author.

Really good series. This is probably my least favorite of them and it was still really good.

Another fun read. Pulling yet another perspective from another main character in the series, while continuing the storyline.

Get ready for hours and hours of people degrading women and infidels as unworthy or "needing to know their place". The desert people have a horrendously toxic view on....well, everything. Caste systems, denigration, slavery, harems, and almost EVERY character treats people like objects to further their own gain. VERY FEW likable characters. The story about Arlen is good.....the other characters suck. You can skip huge sections of the story and only miss out on characters treating each other like crap..... Wasted potential.

It's less than the first work. It sounded like the author was missing something of the 1st book's magic. 3 stars. I did not enjoy the desert people.

I loved this series and felt like I was drawn into a different world until the very end which was highly disappointing, it feels like the author just grew tired of the story and gave up. This is an example to me of how not to end a story.
