The Skull Throne of Krasia stands empty.Built from the skulls of fallen generals and demon princes, it is a seat of honor and ancient, powerful magic, keeping the demon corelings at bay From atop the throne, Ahmann Jardir was meant to conquer 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 BalesThe Skull Throne of Krasia stands empty.Built from the skulls of fallen generals and demon princes, it is a seat of honor and ancient, powerful magic, keeping the demon corelings at bay From atop the throne, Ahmann Jardir was meant to conquer 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 a way to keep their sons from killing each other and plunging their people into civil war as they strive for glory enough to make a claim on the throne.In the north, Leesha Paper and Rojer Inn struggle to forge an alliance between the duchies of Angiers and Miln against the Krasians before it is too late.Caught in the crossfire is the duchy of Lakton rich and unprotected, ripe for conquest.All the while, the corelings have been growing stronger, and without Arlen and Jardir there may be none strong enough to stop them Only Renna Bales may know about the fate of the missing men, but she, too, has disappeared

  1. slight spoilers possible for books 1 3 The penultimate installment in Brett s demon cycle quintology the V in Peter V Brett is in fact the Roman numeral for 5, it was always going to be a quintology.Another great read that I consumed in chunks over the course of 6 weeks At first I was confused by the sheer number of names of ranks and people that I d forgotten since the last book But at the Grim Gathering Peter pointed out to me that I was an idiot with great diplomacy there s a family tree and [...]

  2. 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 there.I ve been struggling with a feeling since about midway through book 2, but I ve been reluctant to give it voice b c it would mean admitting that once upon a time I watched soap operas.Not of my own volition I spent a lot of time with one of my grandmothers who watched them, and then later I had a [...]

  3. 3.5 5 StarsThe Skull Throne is a good penultimate installment to the Demon Cycle series.When you re playing a video game, especially role playing games, usually before the final boss you re going to do every side quests before you proceed to finish the game These side quests are usually important for character developments, info on the world building, and gaining all the necessary weapons and power to make the confrontation in the end either easier or satisfying The Skull Throne encapsulated t [...]

  4. 04 17 2016Another year has passed I tried to make this book last forever because I know the next is still a long time coming I finished today though, and I need time to process what just happened 04 06 2015Almost two years to the day since this original post and I must say, I AM SOOO EXCITED to see all the 4 and 5 star reviews that keep popping up I am starting this on Wednesday, and I CAN T WAIT 04 05 2013Just finished The Daylight War now I wait

  5. Oh man Oh man I just can tOh manall wen I can tfuck it let s do this If you haven t figured out by now that there are spoilers in my reviews then there is no hope for you Should we start with the Deliverers and their reflective crews Good Glad you agree So despite the fact that everyone and their alagai wanted to know what happened after the world s best exit, it is pretty obvious that this book wasn t about them But it was still interesting to see how their relationship evolved One time ajin pa [...]

  6. Are Arlen Bales and Jardir dead or just missing Who will step up to fill the power vacuum left in Jardir s absence And what of Leesha Paper and the child inside her, or Rojer Half Grip and his ever growing group of wives And what of Count Thamos All of these questions and will be answered in the penultimate volume of the Demon Cycle, The Skull Throne I got this from Netgalley.After the wreckage that was the Daylight War, I decided nabbing an ARC was the only way I cared to continue the series F [...]

  7. The first book of this series was good The main character was someone you could root for The story was unique and interesting The world and magic were interesting and readers got to follow the main character doIng interesting things I m not sure what made the author decide politics, particularly politics of some quasi islamic, closed minded, hateful culture, was what made the series worth reading, but he certainly commited to that idea in a big way With the latest book, I find myself skipping ch [...]

  8. I am one of the fortunate few who has gotten to read the manuscript pre publication I will not say anything other than that Brett continues to get better with each book, and you are all in for a treat The Skull Throne is his best work yet.

  9. 3.5 starsAs much as I love this series, I have to agree with everyone, this is by far the weakest book in the series, it wasn t boring or anything of that nature, but what happened in this book has very little to do the initial plot I know it was important to know about the politics and how things are working in the absence of the both Deliverers but it was dragged too much It was fun to read but tiring at the same time That wasn t even the worst part, the worst part was the near absence of Arle [...]

  10. 3.5 of 5 stars at The BiblioSanctum bibliosanctum 2015 03 16 bI m going to be keeping this a spoiler free review and I won t be revealing anything that s not in the book description because I get it Even after the crazy cliffhanger Peter V Brett left us with at the end of The Daylight War, I refused to read the first chapter of The Skull Throne that he s had on his website for the longest time Despite my burning curiosity, I was sure I didn t want to know how anything resolved until I had the fu [...]

  11. I ve found I ve had the most difficult time reviewing this book and the problem I m running into is not making it sound like a huge fanboy love fest Not only do I love this series, but this was quite possibly the best yet There s so much to it So much action and so many things happening and barely a flashback to be seen I enjoyed the flashback in The Daylight War quite a bit, but for some reason I loathed the thought of another lengthy one in this one I think you can do one well, but than that [...]

  12. via GIPHY I will crush them I will take their eyes and eat them The fish men will whisper my name in terror for generations I want to start this review by saying that The Skull Throne and the preceding book, The Daylight War, have been a frustrating experience This book, much like all the others started really well, we have a brief background story on the character Aisha which was interesting as she learns the arts from her Master, Enkido, and it didn t feel too drawn out this time like the prev [...]

  13. Ahmann Jardir and Arlen Bales, the two men believed to be the Deliverers of the world by many, are missing after Arlen threw them both from a cliff during their fight to the death Their respective followers are forced to regroup and learn how to move forward without them.First and foremost I have to admit that I m unashamedly a huge fan of The Demon Cycle Series by Peter V Brett I ve read every book and novella in the series multiple times The Skull Throne is a worthy sequel and it sets the stag [...]

  14. This series started off very strong, but it has turned into a pile of shit The main reason for this, the krasians At some point in this book Rojer thinks what his life would have been like if his parents had lived I look at the this series in that way concerning the krasians and their lame ass backwards culture If they had only remained the stepping stone for Arlen becoming the Warded Man, all would have been good Unfortunately they have spread into this series like a disease with their extreme [...]

  15. I m very pleased with this one, maybe even a bit than the previous two novels There s quite a bit of court intrigue and Leesha and Rojer are everywhere I admit to liking those bits a lot than the whole Krasia bits, but upon a reread I might change my mind I m honestly amazed at just how much magic, fighting, magic fighting, and just how much plain good story there is in between It never gets boring at all, and here s the interesting trick Arlen his new best friend and his promised are BARELY i [...]

  16. I thought this was a good instalment in the Demon Cycle series Brett has a super engaging storytelling style and that makes it easy to get caught up in the story even during the times that it is focusing on characters that I really dislike The weird thing about this fourth book was that Arlen, Jardir, and the Demons were basically just afterthoughts The story focused on how well the Crasians and the Hollow dealt with their absence and the continuation of the Daylight War It worked out quite exci [...]

  17. 3.5 Not without flaws but still quite entertaining The beginning was a bit slow introducing new character Ashia on Krasian side I can t say I cared much for the new Povs in this book since we already have big enough cast of characters we know and love Briar was a bit easier to root for because I knew his backstory from Messenger s Legacy Once we move to Hollows and main characters, plot becomes gripping There is a fair share of soap opera here who s the father of the baby, how many wives Rojer [...]

  18. Final rating 5 5 starsI can t tell you how much I love this series But this gotta be the most brutal book of all so far So many things happened, so MANY THINGS, that I don t even know where to start This book shocked me and highly moved me and I cried a lot I love most of the characters in these books But what I admire the most is Brett s ability to write them so good, make them feel so real We know everything about our characters, hell, we even followed some of them from when they were babies A [...]

  19. Disappointing rubbish Much like previous books in this series, there were only a handful of pages devoted to the main plot, mostly at the start and end of the novel The rest felt like filler, with unlikable characters experiencing brutality for a first, no rape as backstory in this one , awkwardly agreeable conversations and weird amounts of wish fulfillment, while the narrator explains everything that everyone s thinking, all of the time view spoiler On the plus side, some of those unnecessary [...]

  20. The first three Demon Cycle novels were stories of heroes Through them, we confronted the age old question of whether heroes are born, or whether they are made They were also, at their heart, stories of betrayal In them, we bore witness to two men, friends and allies, who turned upon one another in a battle to be named The Deliverer We watched as one betrayed the other in a desperate attempt to claim that title, and then watched as the other betrayed everything he d been taught, just to survive [...]

  21. The fourth book in this series is pretty much on par with the first book and thus a return to form IMHO It did have some minor flashbacks, but nothing like the the middle books 2 3 It was perfectly great all the way through and then the last few chapters just propelled it into awesome land Peter V Brett is definitely evolving as an author and I cannot wait to see what the last book in this series holds in store Renna might be on the cover, but neither she nor Arlen feature much in this book Who [...]

  22. This book, as some of you may know, was actually the book I had been most anticipating this year After picking up the previous 3 books in very quick succession way back in 2012 2013, I was left with a massive desire to have of the characters, and world where everything took place.I believe one of the things I most enjoy about Brett s works is his ideas and the way that he manages to get these wacky, crazy demons to seem slightly less crazy than some of the humans in the book Basically this is s [...]

  23. Oh dear lord Have you read this series If not, stop what you re doing right now and go pick up The Warded Man Seriously, the worldbuilding is unique and fantastic, and the you read, the you get sucked into the story.Now, once you re done with the first three books in the series, you will arrive at Skull Throne And you will want it with every fiber of your being, and you will read it as quickly as you possibly can, because you have to, because you NEED TO KNOW.And it will destroy you, in all of [...]

  24. Two stars and let it be known that I am beyond caring Truly Therefore, dear Reader, if you are after a review stop right now, this ent a review, this is a rant And full of spoilers Spoilers first view spoiler It was obvious that Thamos will die from the moment he sticked Leesha so I cannot say I was overly surprised hide spoiler I am still unable to get over the fact that she got herself pregnant with Jardir like a teenage girl and NOT the most brilliant Herb Gatherer of the millennium It was po [...]

  25. In one word This was really disappointing This was Game of thrones meets Sword of Shannara Lots and lots of political mongering and heavy prose with no movement in the story line Clearly, Brett is just dragging this out The editing too is a let down and some jumps are too hasty The only interesting part is when Briar pops up and entertains us for a while The count is wasted, Leesha bores us with her ever escalating problems and the Krasian society and its Dama s are now grating The next book nee [...]

  26. Full Review at Tenacious Reader tenaciousreader 2015 0I found the Skull Throne to be an improved reading experience from what I had with the Daylight War To be honest, I was not sure if I wanted to continue the series, but my enjoyment of the first two books convinced me to give the series another shot Thankfully my key complaints in the Daylight War were not carried through to The Skull Throne.First, while Arlen does still have a bit of an accent, I don t think it was anything like it was in Da [...]

  27. Auh, ovo je bilo naporno, jako naporno.Brett je potpuno podbacio i napisao veliki dave.Ono to je zanimljivo, sami demoni i nastojanje dva lika da organiziraju sve ostale u kona noj borbi protiv njih imamo u nekoliko poglavlja na po etku gdje se prvo razrije i nepostoje i cliffhanger pro log nastavka Jardir i Arlen opali sa stijene i mo mislit da su poginuli No i ta poglavlja su dobila ne to meni jako naporno opise kung fu borbi s demonima, posebno s umnim i njihovim mjenjolicima na veeelikom bro [...]

  28. Hmm, I am quite failing to see why so many people find this worth or 4 5 stars.I ve read all 4 books in the past week , and since book 3 have found it to be getting of a slog through the bog than an enjoyable read.Yes, Peter s built many interesting characters, enough so that I continue to read the series However, I am really tired and fed up, up to here with the following 1 I d bet that almost 50% of the series since book 3 is made up of nothing than flashbacks, and what can be termed as litt [...]

  29. There s a simple work enjoyment ratio I like to employ when reading for leisure I expect to get as much enjoyment from a book as the amount of work I put into reading it Some books take no work at all, but I don t mind working Work often leads to a satisfying enjoyment factor I like this series I m happy I started Demon Cycle, but by book 4, I ve put work into reading it than the enjoyment I ve gotten out of it Why is this Well, book 1 had me hooked on Arlen s character After book 1 his story [...]
