True. Maybe the previous demon war did have something do with it. Though, the title of the series itself does suggest that this isn't the first time the demons "returned". I just hope that Brett doesn't dive too deep into explaining things. I like some mystery in my fantasy sometimes. Especially in a story like this. And please, for the love of god, keep it fantasy. I'd be super pissed to find out that these guys were really aliens from another dimension or something. It'd completely negate everything they've discussed so far with symbols of power and such.

I don't mind mixing genres, but Fantasy doesn't mix well with Sci-Fi unless the author does something akin to Star Wars and The Force.

Anyway, what would you think if Brett ended the series in a way that it was possible for the demons to return instead of ending the threat permanently? Personally, I think either way would work great.

I hope the end it like, Arlen learns humanity an important lesson about their fight against the demons so that they never forget that they can return.
Also if someone from the main cast is going to die, it's probably going to be Leesha or Renna.
I'm more leaning towards Renna dying but I hope it's Leesha, because she is a link to Arlen and Jardir both so they might find union in her death.
User avatar #1061336 - guitarassassin (10/20/2014) [-]
Oooo, better yet. We find out that Renna is pregnant, and she dies. Arlen ins't a unifier yet. They keep hinting that he may just become one someday. He as the potential. He just doesn't have the motivation. Renna dying and Arlen's hopes for a family dying with her may give him the conviction to unify the northern lands. The last book is going to be called The Core, and Arlen has stated that he will take the fight to the Core one day. This would be a great way to get ready for that assault.

As much as Leesha is annoying me, I doubt they'd kill her off due to the fact that she's one of the original three main characters. I could be wrong though. I didn't expect Bruna to die, yet she did I betcha she was there when the Return happened. No one knows how old she was when she died. .

I'd also like Brett to actually show the battles. The Krasian side of the battle of the New Moon/Battle of Waning was completely glossed over after the first night. I was so pissed about that. Not to mention, we never got to see what Inevera's dice said for Arlen. Just that she had to throw them three times like she did for Jardir. I understand that Brett doesn't want to write the same scene multiple times, but I'd like to see what they said exactly.

Yeah, it's about time this series became more like Game of Thrones. It's already like it enough with all the political intrigue, not knowing who's the real villain all this, etc. Hell, I describe this series to people who want to get into it by saying "It's like Game of Thrones if everyone had to cower in their homes while the White Walkers came out every night."

It's high time that it went a step farther and started killing major characters. They don't even have to be the "perspective" characters.
User avatar #1061355 - tormain (10/20/2014) [-]
Yeah just people like Abban or Garreth (something like that, leader of the woodcutters).
Maybe not Abban, for some reason I feel like he will play an extremely important part in the political aspect of the books.
User avatar #1061356 - guitarassassin (10/20/2014) [-]
Well, Abban was upgraded to MC status in Desert Spear albeit a bit late in the book. Garret may die though. Though I think he'll die a noble death. Maybe even defending Leesha. He's become quite likable since his first appearance really. He's like the Jaime Lannister of this series. First introduced as such a bastard only to become a likable character later on.

Finances are always a bitch. I'm just glad I'm still 19 and living with my parent, getting a job to rent a house on top of school is pretty hard to maintain in the netherlands probably everywhere .

And video game backlogs too. It's tough being a nerd with more than one hobby.

Now, judging from the title, The Skull Throne, I'm going to assume that the Krasian side of the story will be about a power struggle between Jardir's son and the Andrah. I'm curious how that will play out.

I do have a theory about the series title. "The Demon Cycle". This isn't like the "Inheritance" cycle. The word cycle refers to the amount of books in the story Three is a trilogy, but four's a cycle. But this is in the actual title rather than describing the amount of books being made This will be a quintet. Five books. , so I have a theory about this. The lore states that the demons walked the earth once before, only to be beaten back once before. Centuries/Millennia I'm not sure if they specify which. It's been a while since I last read the first book pass while humanity, presumably, develop into a world not unlike our own today. Then the demon's return, and "wreck everyone's shit".

What's to say that this was the first time they returned? I mean, the demons treat humans and other species like cattle. They hunt like a pack of wolves preying on a herd of dear. Maybe, they left the first time because the herd was being thinned out rather than being beaten back. Thus, a cycle was started. Every few hundred years, they'd come back for more despite being hunted themselves the previous times.

What do you think?
User avatar #1061302 - tormain (10/20/2014) [-]
I think you could make that argument and I don't really have anything to back me up here but I think the humans did actually drive them back if you think about what the Mind demon said when he came to the surface. Something about a Uniter that would start cause problems again. I think they where easily driven back because they had already obtained what they wanted, humans. The mind demon eats someones brain when he attacks Cutter's Hollow/ Deliverers Hollow and mentions that it is not as tender as the brains he eats from the humans in the core.
So basically I think that the just came to stock up on cattle/humans and then returned to the core, because why would any demon get so close to the sun for anything else?

I don't want to ruin the surprise for me. Seriously, When I got my copy of Cold Days by Jim Butcher, it included an excerpt from the next book, Skin Game. I refused to read it, because I'm still waiting for the paperback version to come out all other books in the series are in paperback. I want my shit to match. I'm weird like that. .

You'd be surprised how many people buy the third book in a series without thinking Plus, I only see the third book on your shelf. .

Yeah, Leesha has been pissing me off since the end of Warded Man. So, you slept with the enemy literally. What'd you expect to happen? Not to mention, when humans are fighting humans, peace isn't an option. Especially, when they act like everyone who isn't them is Chin when technically, they're the Chin Though I do love how she points that out to Jardir's men who insult the northerners.

My favorite moment in Daylight war was when Arlen reveals who he is to the Krasians. Then proceeds to kick the asses of the two who attack him moments after. Great moment.

I'm really hoping that Jardir did die at the end there. The series is enough like Game of Thrones as is. It's about time that some major characters start dying .

I hope the end it like, Arlen learns humanity an important lesson about their fight against the demons so that they never forget that they can return.
Also if someone from the main cast is going to die, it's probably going to be Leesha or Renna.
I'm more leaning towards Renna dying but I hope it's Leesha, because she is a link to Arlen and Jardir both so they might find union in her death.
User avatar #1061336 - guitarassassin (10/20/2014) [-]
Oooo, better yet. We find out that Renna is pregnant, and she dies. Arlen ins't a unifier yet. They keep hinting that he may just become one someday. He as the potential. He just doesn't have the motivation. Renna dying and Arlen's hopes for a family dying with her may give him the conviction to unify the northern lands. The last book is going to be called The Core, and Arlen has stated that he will take the fight to the Core one day. This would be a great way to get ready for that assault.

As much as Leesha is annoying me, I doubt they'd kill her off due to the fact that she's one of the original three main characters. I could be wrong though. I didn't expect Bruna to die, yet she did I betcha she was there when the Return happened. No one knows how old she was when she died. .

I'd also like Brett to actually show the battles. The Krasian side of the battle of the New Moon/Battle of Waning was completely glossed over after the first night. I was so pissed about that. Not to mention, we never got to see what Inevera's dice said for Arlen. Just that she had to throw them three times like she did for Jardir. I understand that Brett doesn't want to write the same scene multiple times, but I'd like to see what they said exactly.
User avatar #1061345 - tormain (10/20/2014) [-]
Still though, I would die a little on the inside if Renna did die. Which she probably will, damnit.

I see your point on Leesha having plot armor but I kind of hope she doesn't, Game of Thrones style.

And more detailed war scenes would be awesome. I think Inevera's predictions will be of some importance in the next book actually so we'll see how it goes.

Yeah, it's about time this series became more like Game of Thrones. It's already like it enough with all the political intrigue, not knowing who's the real villain all this, etc. Hell, I describe this series to people who want to get into it by saying "It's like Game of Thrones if everyone had to cower in their homes while the White Walkers came out every night."

It's high time that it went a step farther and started killing major characters. They don't even have to be the "perspective" characters.
User avatar #1061355 - tormain (10/20/2014) [-]
Yeah just people like Abban or Garreth (something like that, leader of the woodcutters).
Maybe not Abban, for some reason I feel like he will play an extremely important part in the political aspect of the books.
User avatar #1061356 - guitarassassin (10/20/2014) [-]
Well, Abban was upgraded to MC status in Desert Spear albeit a bit late in the book. Garret may die though. Though I think he'll die a noble death. Maybe even defending Leesha. He's become quite likable since his first appearance really. He's like the Jaime Lannister of this series. First introduced as such a bastard only to become a likable character later on.

Spice and Wolf novels are the shit. Between them, the manga, and the anime, the novels are definitely my favorite. Go into more detail and give more insight into what goes on in Lawrence's head. Good shit.

Yeah I loved the anime, it's still my favorite but the LN's are even better. I can't wait to read the Pyrite arc, I was frustrated the entire way in the anime and I would love to see the train of thought Lawrence had during that time.
User avatar #1061341 - IrishSasquatch (10/20/2014) [-]
That part is especially good in the books. It goes into quite a bit of detail of how bad Lawrence is flipping shits and how confused he is. On a side note, the translate is absolutely fantastic, so props to the translator (Can't remember off the top of my head who it is)
User avatar #1061352 - tormain (10/20/2014) [-]
Yen Press I believe, they do a lot of good stuff. I hope they translate the Toaru Hikuushi e no .... series sometimes, I would love to read that.

Yeah but I haven't read them all yet, only the first two actually.
I'm starting The Blinding Knife soon and the Name of The Wind so I won't be finishing it for a while.
User avatar #1061357 - charac (10/20/2014) [-]
The name of the wind was one of my favourite books when I went to school. Reading it feels like playing a rpg.
I wonder how close Patrick Rothfuss is to finishing the 3rd book.

Brent Weeks is a godly writer
read the entire Night Angel Trilogy in only 5 days
was glorious

Have you tried The Lightbringer Trilogy from him? It's sooo good. Not as cruel as the night angel trilogy but I love the magic in this series.
User avatar #1061299 - redclover (10/20/2014) [-]
I've read the first installment of the series, and his attention to detail in his magic system is outstanding
I just haven't gotten around to the others because money is a little tight recently with the new baby and all and I can't really go out and buy new books

Finances are always a bitch. I'm just glad I'm still 19 and living with my parent, getting a job to rent a house on top of school is pretty hard to maintain in the netherlands probably everywhere .
I want to get started on the second book but I haven't gotten around to it yet. I loved the part were the real Gavin Guile broke out of his prison only to find himself in the next one. That kind of thing is why I love Brent' work.
User avatar #1061221 - guitarassassin (10/20/2014) [-]
I see that you have The Daylight War. Do you have the other two Demon Cycle books, and what do you think of them? I fracking love that series. Though, The Warded Man is still my favorite so far, but that's mainly because I like the Hero's Journey aspect of the story. My favorite moment is Arlen's speech before the Battle of Cutter's Hollow where he says, "If the demon's fear a Deliverer, then let them fear a hundred, for tonight, you're all deliverers."
User avatar #1061238 - tormain (10/20/2014) [-]
Well if I didn't have the first two in the series buying the third one would be stupid.
I think the demon cycle is my second favorite series so far. The first being the night angel trilogy by Brent Weeks, I love the sadism in that series.
But the Demon cycle is fucking fantastic, the character development for Arlen is amazing. I love how Rojer turned out, didn't really like him at first but the built him up quite well. And I liked Leesha a lot at the start but she's kinda getting on my nerve with the last book.
Personally Rena is my favorite character, her brazenness and willingness to charge in headfirst into anything is something I fucking love.

Also, the first chapter of "The Skull Throne" is out on Peter V. Brett' site.
User avatar #1061264 - guitarassassin (10/20/2014) [-]
You'd be surprised how many people buy the third book in a series without thinking Plus, I only see the third book on your shelf. .

Yeah, Leesha has been pissing me off since the end of Warded Man. So, you slept with the enemy literally. What'd you expect to happen? Not to mention, when humans are fighting humans, peace isn't an option. Especially, when they act like everyone who isn't them is Chin when technically, they're the Chin Though I do love how she points that out to Jardir's men who insult the northerners.

My favorite moment in Daylight war was when Arlen reveals who he is to the Krasians. Then proceeds to kick the asses of the two who attack him moments after. Great moment.

I'm really hoping that Jardir did die at the end there. The series is enough like Game of Thrones as is. It's about time that some major characters start dying .
User avatar #1061269 - tormain (10/20/2014) [-]
Like I said. The first chapter of the fourth book "The Skull Throne" is out on the author' site.
It tells you what happens after they fall off that cliff.
You should read it, I got me seriously hyped about book 4.
User avatar #1061274 - guitarassassin (10/20/2014) [-]
I don't want to ruin the surprise for me. Seriously, When I got my copy of Cold Days by Jim Butcher, it included an excerpt from the next book, Skin Game. I refused to read it, because I'm still waiting for the paperback version to come out all other books in the series are in paperback. I want my shit to match. I'm weird like that. . If I didn't have a huge backlog of books to read, the wait for all this stuff would kill me.
User avatar #1061275 - tormain (10/20/2014) [-]
Animuh backlogs also help.
#1061291 - guitarassassin (10/20/2014) [-]
And video game backlogs too. It's tough being a nerd with more than one hobby.

Now, judging from the title, The Skull Throne, I'm going to assume that the Krasian side of the story will be about a power struggle between Jardir's son and the Andrah. I'm curious how that will play out.

I do have a theory about the series title. "The Demon Cycle". This isn't like the "Inheritance" cycle. The word cycle refers to the amount of books in the story Three is a trilogy, but four's a cycle. But this is in the actual title rather than describing the amount of books being made This will be a quintet. Five books. , so I have a theory about this. The lore states that the demons walked the earth once before, only to be beaten back once before. Centuries/Millennia I'm not sure if they specify which. It's been a while since I last read the first book pass while humanity, presumably, develop into a world not unlike our own today. Then the demon's return, and "wreck everyone's shit".

What's to say that this was the first time they returned? I mean, the demons treat humans and other species like cattle. They hunt like a pack of wolves preying on a herd of dear. Maybe, they left the first time because the herd was being thinned out rather than being beaten back. Thus, a cycle was started. Every few hundred years, they'd come back for more despite being hunted themselves the previous times.

What do you think?
User avatar #1061302 - tormain (10/20/2014) [-]
I think you could make that argument and I don't really have anything to back me up here but I think the humans did actually drive them back if you think about what the Mind demon said when he came to the surface. Something about a Uniter that would start cause problems again. I think they where easily driven back because they had already obtained what they wanted, humans. The mind demon eats someones brain when he attacks Cutter's Hollow/ Deliverers Hollow and mentions that it is not as tender as the brains he eats from the humans in the core.
So basically I think that the just came to stock up on cattle/humans and then returned to the core, because why would any demon get so close to the sun for anything else?
User avatar #1061309 - guitarassassin (10/20/2014) [-]
True. Maybe the previous demon war did have something do with it. Though, the title of the series itself does suggest that this isn't the first time the demons "returned". I just hope that Brett doesn't dive too deep into explaining things. I like some mystery in my fantasy sometimes. Especially in a story like this. And please, for the love of god, keep it fantasy. I'd be super pissed to find out that these guys were really aliens from another dimension or something. It'd completely negate everything they've discussed so far with symbols of power and such.

I don't mind mixing genres, but Fantasy doesn't mix well with Sci-Fi unless the author does something akin to Star Wars and The Force.

Anyway, what would you think if Brett ended the series in a way that it was possible for the demons to return instead of ending the threat permanently? Personally, I think either way would work great.
User avatar #1061318 - tormain (10/20/2014) [-]
I hope the end it like, Arlen learns humanity an important lesson about their fight against the demons so that they never forget that they can return.
Also if someone from the main cast is going to die, it's probably going to be Leesha or Renna.
I'm more leaning towards Renna dying but I hope it's Leesha, because she is a link to Arlen and Jardir both so they might find union in her death.
User avatar #1061336 - guitarassassin (10/20/2014) [-]
Oooo, better yet. We find out that Renna is pregnant, and she dies. Arlen ins't a unifier yet. They keep hinting that he may just become one someday. He as the potential. He just doesn't have the motivation. Renna dying and Arlen's hopes for a family dying with her may give him the conviction to unify the northern lands. The last book is going to be called The Core, and Arlen has stated that he will take the fight to the Core one day. This would be a great way to get ready for that assault.

As much as Leesha is annoying me, I doubt they'd kill her off due to the fact that she's one of the original three main characters. I could be wrong though. I didn't expect Bruna to die, yet she did I betcha she was there when the Return happened. No one knows how old she was when she died. .

I'd also like Brett to actually show the battles. The Krasian side of the battle of the New Moon/Battle of Waning was completely glossed over after the first night. I was so pissed about that. Not to mention, we never got to see what Inevera's dice said for Arlen. Just that she had to throw them three times like she did for Jardir. I understand that Brett doesn't want to write the same scene multiple times, but I'd like to see what they said exactly.
User avatar #1061345 - tormain (10/20/2014) [-]
Still though, I would die a little on the inside if Renna did die. Which she probably will, damnit.

I see your point on Leesha having plot armor but I kind of hope she doesn't, Game of Thrones style.

And more detailed war scenes would be awesome. I think Inevera's predictions will be of some importance in the next book actually so we'll see how it goes.
