As Ahmann Jardir amasses an army to fight the demon war he believes is coming soon, Arlen Bales refuses to be called the Deliverer even while the people around him beg for a hero to save them from Krasia and the threat coming up from the Core.
The Warded Man was such a strong debut that I will continue to believe in, support, and read Peter V. Brett–despite my disappointment with this third installment in a series I’m heavily invested in. The Daylight War just treads water. I trust that he knows where he is taking us and has big ideas in mind, and I’m hoping this will just end up being a weak installment in a still great series. And by weak, I mean “still full of awesome.”
