Publisher Description

An epic fantasy adventure set in the beloved world of the Demon Cycle, following a new generation of heroes, from New York Times bestselling author Peter V. Brett
“Heart-wrenching, smart, and modern . . . The Desert Prince has set a new standard for fantasy.”—Wesley Chu, #1 New York Times bestselling author of The War Arts Saga

Fifteen years have passed since the end of the war with demons, creatures of darkness who have hunted the night and plagued humanity since time out of mind. The heroes of humanity’s hour of need have become legend, and those who remain struggle to escape their shadows.
Olive Paper and Darin Bales have grown up in this new peaceful world. Demons have been all but destroyed, but dangers still lurk for the children of heroes.
Olive, princess of Hollow, has her entire life planned out by her mother, Duchess Leesha Paper: a steady march on a checklist to prepare her for succession. The more her mother writes the script, the more Olive rails against playing the parts she is assigned.
Darin faces challenges of a different kind. Though free to choose his own path, the weight of legacy hangs heavy around his shoulders. It isn’t easy being the son of the man people say saved the world. Everyone expects greatness from Darin, but the only thing he’s ever been great at is hiding.
When Olive and Darin step across the wards one night, they learn the demons are not all gone, and those that remain hunger for revenge. Events are set in motion that only prophecy can foresee as Olive and Darin seek to find their own places in the world in time to save it again.

Fantastic Continuation

Truly I did not expect The Demon Cycle to continue, but I am overjoyed by what has started anew here. Peter Brett has lost none of his talent at making a world full of characters and forces that manage to feel real and sensible, to one degree or another. I was absolutely delighted with the main themes of this book, in what it says about who you are versus who others want you to be. I dearly look forward to the next novel

Good story

Ive been eagerly waiting for this boom to drop. I read this after rereading all the other Demon cycle books. Maybe I’m to attached to the first generation but I found the story of Olive and Company to be a bit of a disappointment. The writing just didn’t seem as up to snuff as the previous books. But generally speaking the story was entertaining and I still appreciate Mr. Brett’s work

Decent Story

Would not buy again, not as good as the first series. Over detailed.
