Daylight War

Readers, get ready to count one more blessing this Thanksgiving. It’s been well over two years since Peter V. Brett released The Desert Spear, the second book of the popular Demon Cycle series, but Book 3 is right around the corner and we’ve got a first look at the cover and an exclusive excerpt!

Demons are on the verge of wiping out humanity. The only hope is the Deliverer, a man who once united all of mankind against the vicious creatures of the night. Legend tells that he will one day return and unite them once more. Arlen Bales vehemently denies that he is the fabled Deliverer, but thanks to his wards — the powerful marks that make him a match for any demon — rumor has spread among the common folk that he is the chosen one. But will Arlen be humanity’s salvation or its downfall? Without further ado, check out the gorgeous cover for The Daylight War below:
