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.

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 Brooklyn NY with his wife Dani and two cats, Jinx and Max Powers.

    Comments about The Daylight War:

    Just finished this long awaited tome, at 737 pages, it was an epic read! Peter V. Brett is my favorite author and The Skull Throne just adds to his awesome collection of books. Being the fourth book in The Demon Cycle we are well into the story and there were some great twists that surprised me. These books are really engaging and great to read.
    I can't recommend The Demon Cycle series enough, if you love interesting, layered characters, in depth cultures and awesome story-lines these books are a must for any reader!
