The first three novels in New York Times bestselling author Peter V Brett’s groundbreaking Demon Cycle series The Warded Man The Desert Spear and The Daylight War set a new standard for heroic fantasy The powerful saga of humans winnowed to the brink of extinction by night stalking demons and the survivors who fight back has kept readers breathless as they eagerly turned the pages Now the thrilling fourth volume The Skull Throne raises the stakes as it carries the action in shocking new directions The Skull Throne of Krasia stands empty Built from the skulls of fallen generals and demon princes it. Reviewed by Rabid Reads Spoilers from previous books and minor spoilers from this one Peter V Brett s DEMON CYCLE began with a truly excellent first installment but it s been all downhill from thereI ve been struggling with a feeling since about midway through book 2 but I ve been reluctant to give it voice bc it would mean admitting that once upon a time I watched soap operasNot of my own volition I spent a lot of time with one of my grandmothers who watched them and then later I had a babysitter who watched the same ones and well I watched them tooThis series feels a lot like a soap operaAn aging beauty sleeps with her in the bloom of her youth daughter s ex betrothed whose father was the one who got away except not really bc despite marrying someone else she kept sleeping with him tooBeautiful Daughter falls alternately for two men who were once like brothers but who are now archenemies becoming pregnant by one but refusing to marry him and become wife 15 and in an attempt to protect her child and her reputation she falls into bed with handsome new royal in town with the intent of passing the child off as his but wonder of wonders she falls in love with Duke and can t bear beginning their life together on a lie bangs head against wallHonestly if that was my only complaint I could ve handled it It would ve kept the series from my favorites list but drama in fiction it s inevitableBut there s also the virtual disappearance of 1 MC from this installment so there still hasn t been sufficient page time with him and his brand new that came out of nowhere wife for me to used to the ideaThen there s what I m forced to conclude aren t significant headaches that for some reason warrant mention every time our focus is on Leesha as well as her bladder reuirements bc why waste time with plot developments when you can consistently fill up page space with everyday bodily functionsBut what finally made me call it uits was view spoilerThamos getting killed hide spoiler

Peter V. Brett ´ 2 Summary

Is a seat of honor and ancient powerful magic keeping the demon corelings at bay From atop the throne Ahmann Jardir was meant to conuer the known world forging its isolated peoples into a unified army to rise up and end the demon war once and for all But Arlen Bales the Warded Man stood against this course challenging Jardir to a duel he could not in honor refuse Rather than risk defeat Arlen cast them both from a precipice leaving the world without a savior and opening a struggle for succession that threatens to tear the Free Cities of Thesa apart In the south Inevera Jardir’s first wife must find. Certainly this book frustrated me on a number of occasions and the use of terminology and naming conventions grated but I enjoyed reading it Peter V Brett remains an author high on my to read list I may not like all the choices he has made with his books but I respect his decisions and try to see and enjoy the story he wants to tell even if it is not the story I thought I wanted His work continues to improve in complexity characterisation and style and it is worth readingI m left feeling like the bulk of important things that happened in this book happened in the last couple hundred pages There certainly were key things before then but wow there some major events right up to the very end Lots of action plotting uests for power Pretty much it was war And with that can come unpredictability and changes that will impact everything else yet to comeWithout giving away the why and the how of it the second half of the novel deals directly with the clash of cultures and the battle over ideas It s epic it s violent and it s filled with betrayals than you can count Despite what you might be thinking after the first half especially given the size of the book this is not just an attempt to pad the story and sueeze out another book Big stuff happens here Important stuff Crucial stuff Up until now the fate of mankind has rested almost solely on the shoulders of Jardir and Arlen but no longer We ll have to wait and see what the true conseuences of this book will be but the world we re left with at the end is not the one our heroes began fighting for Sadly we ll be a few heroes and villains short going into the last book but those wounds are far too fresh for me to even dance around much less tease or spoil All I will say is that these are not cheap deaths they happen on the page in full view of the reader and they re as horrible and heartbreaking as you could possibly fear or hopeIronically for a book where the demons take a back seat to the evils of man those very same demons are the one flaw in the story for me We ll have to wait and see how Brett develops what he started here but I m a bit uncomfortable with how he shifted them from monsters to enemies The Skull Throne lets us inside their heads and I think that takes away from the awe and the terror Having said that there s a throwaway line towards the end the really intrigued me leaving me to wonder how he ll reconcile history and mythology in the final book but you ll just have to read it for yourself
