Demon Cycle
3 : The Daylight War (1 of 2)

by Peter V. Brett
Feb 1, 2014
7 Hours
Ages 18+
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 him 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.

Continues to be a super amazing story - great action. by paresh (Posted on 5/2/2018)
Continues to be a super amazing story - great action. But I found that there were a lot of foreign sounding names and I do mean a LOT - which made following parts of the story a little confusing. However, the voice-acting, story telling and overall production were good enough to compensate. Extremely addictive. Hugely recommended.
Great! by Koan (Posted on 2/10/2018)
The production on this is wonderful, I love the effects and the battle scenes are really intense.
Daylight War Part 1 of Demon Cycle by John (Posted on 12/29/2017)
Inevera is portrayed in her silks on this unique cover. The plot for Krasia to command the greenlands unfolds in this new war where men fight each other in the day and fight demons in the night. The characters really cement into their newer roles and the Deliverer question just might be answered in another book.

Stay Tuned.

Start to finish, Peter V. Brett's wonderful immersive world fought by human and demon alike. So many character arcs with lots of growth and change. Heroes and villains, plots and conflicts. Truly an abundant worthwhile series that will make you satisfied when you return to the book series after a period of time. A timeless series cheering for all humanity and our own favorite people that snuggle in close to our heart.

I love to read just but never have the time. I have listened to other audio books in the past while they where nothing compared to graphic audio.

Mr by John (Posted on 3/17/2014)
I have listened to all the fantasy tittles GA has to offer and the Demon war Saga is probably my favorite. Its one of those books where you reach your destination but you want to keep driving because the book is so good.

And the production and content in this book is just like the motto says, a movie in your mind. Its so good I have a visual memory of events that I listened to.
Awesome by mike mayhall (Posted on 2/7/2014)
This series is great. I am so glad the next one is out. Get it!
Over all a great adaptation of this amazing book! by Bee (Posted on 1/14/2014)
I feel like every step forward reveals more about every character in the book. We learn that Arlen has scars, that his arch rival too has his own agenda and flaws, and most of all, that his wife is as devious as ever!
This adaptation was awesome! Need I say more?
The original soundtracks that were used was great, most notably the song that was written for Roger's two wives to sing. The two actresses did excellently, I should add.
The scenes of violence are well-done with the right amount of UMPH so that it doesn't seem overly done, and the intense moments are filled with spine-tingling music and grade A acting.
A movie in your mind indeed!
A great Read...Or Listen, I guess. by Bee (Posted on 1/14/2014)
This series is one of my favorites that I have ever come across. Each character has his/her own personality, and I feel as if each is actually alive in some alternate dimension. I especially loved this adaptation of the Daylight War because of the original soundtracks played, most notably the song which Roger wrote for his two wives to sing. (Excellent job!)
... Kneel for Dama Jahmir by HD (Posted on 1/7/2014)
The reason for the title is that is one of my favorite parts of this book. Where the true strength of Abban is brought to light. I really enjoyed every moment of this story, the interaction with Renna and Darcy was priceless. Arlen and Renna talking with the tenders was another great example of their trust in each other they make a very cool duo. The GA production is stellar as always. Though I did notice something different with Rojer however it did not take away from the wonderful production. I can't wait for the second part....

Favorite one so far great book!
It gets even better and faster from here by Scott (Posted on 12/23/2013)
First book was about Arlen, The second focused on Jardir's background and this one while progressing the story in present focuses on the major female antagonist Innvera's background and history. We get to really know our antagonist characters and while we see their flaws we get to see that they have their own justifiable reasons for doing what they've done that Arlen would call evil. At the same time we see they could have made more moral choices. These heat up to an epic climax thats been building for books. The GA version is fantastic.
Excellent! by Beverly (Posted on 12/23/2013)
Demon Cycle is a fantastic series and Graphic Audio is over the top when it comes to creating audio for books.
Things are not as you may have thought by Shannon (Posted on 11/17/2013)
I have not listened to the Graphic Audio, but have listened and read the book, so I think I can give a review, even though I cannot wait to hear the GA version. The characters of the last two novels shift a little in this one. For one thing, I began to see Inevera as a more sympathetic character than some evil nemesis. The story begins with her as a young girl with a family, a father who is a war veteran, a mother who has to support the family and her beloved brother who has just become one of the warriors. However, fate shows Inevera something different and because the culture in which she lives in is as it is, she has no choice than to do what her is told, however, you get the feeling from this little bit about her life as to why she is ambitious and does not want to be just any priestess but wants to be in a position where she will be no one's slave, so to speak. You get to hear her thoughts throughout the book and I thought that was interesting in that you come to understand why she has done things the way she has.
The other characters still go on. Arlen still denies that he is the "Deliverer" and he and Renna are a couple. Arlen is worried because of what he feels is his fleeting humanity and that Renna is trying to be like him doing things he warns her about. That is an issue that extends throughout the book as well as Renna's "claim" on Alren, getting angry when any female touches him, even something as simple as a hug from an older woman as a thank you when they both save her family's lives. Both characters become more and more unhinged as the story goes one.
Leesha is more of a leader of people and has to struggle with her many roles, very similar to her mentor. She tries to shy away from Jardir and the rest of the "wooing" of his men. Rojer tries to learn about women and has conformed to the Krasian ways in that he wants to be a good "husband" to more than one woman.
Abban becomes more of an important character because he is of the merchant class and even though Jardir does not seem to trust him and slams him any chance he gets, Leesha and the people of her hamlet call him out of it, but Jardir still likes to keep an eye on him.
Also, more is learned about the corelings and learn about the intelligence behind the corelings as the "Princes" start to appear more and more. Also, the past is explored about the life before the corelings. However, if you have not figured out by the cover, the is the book for Inevera.
It is obvious the cultural differences, one resembling the traditional Islamic ways and the more "modern" western ways. This was a great book that still had it's stereotypes, double standards, the problem that men have with a woman being the leader regardless of whether she asked for it or not. However, to me it shows two different people's perspective on what they think about the other and while there are differences, there are some similarities. There is some confusion at times, but it is not an insult to any one culture in particular.
I was like "wow" I can't wait to hear GA on this one. Also, I found myself wondering if the "Deliverer" just may not be either men, Jardir or Arlen, and might, just might be Leesha and Inevera, both of them.
