The Demon Cycle is a series of books written by author Peter V. Brett. Also, as of February 10, 2015, it is a 3-book Kindle bundle (the first 3 books). The series according to Peter V Brett blog, will include 5 main books, going by these titles:
- Book 1 - The Painted Man / The Warded Man (2008) 
- Book 2 - The Desert Spear (2010)
- Book 3 - The Daylight War (2013)
- Book 4 - The Skull Throne (2015)
- Book 5 - The Core (not yet released; late Sep 2017?)
These are not officially part of the main storyline, but were too long to be considered novellas, and also paint an interesting picture into the lore of the Thesan world.
Brett has also announced and released a few Novellas already, So far there are 2, with a third on the way. But, according to Bretts blog there are several more planned. So far these are.
- Novella 1 - The Great Bazaar (2010)
- Novella 2 - Brayan's Gold (2011)
- Novella 3 - Messenger's Legacy (2014)
- Novella 4 - Barren (not yet released; Oct 2017)
Blurb for the Demon Cycle Edit
From Penguin Random House:
- As darkness falls after sunset, the corelings rise—demons who possess supernatural powers and burn with a consuming hatred of humanity. For hundreds of years the demons have terrorized the night, slowly culling the human herd that shelters behind magical wards—symbols of power whose origins are lost in myth and whose protection is terrifyingly fragile.
- It was not always this way. Once, men and women battled the corelings on equal terms, but those days are gone. Night by night the demons grow stronger, while human numbers dwindle under their relentless assault.
- Now, with hope for the future fading, three young survivors of vicious demon attacks will do the unthinkable, stepping beyond the crumbling safety of the wards to risk everything in a desperate quest to regain the secrets of the past.
- Arlen Bales will pay any price, embrace any sacrifice, for freedom, and his grim journey will take him beyond the bounds of human power. Crippled by the demons that killed his parents, Rojer Inn seeks solace in music, only to discover that his instrument can be a weapon as well as a refuge. Wanting to cure the sick and injured, Leesha Paper overcomes great hardship to become a guardian of old world science, learning that what heals can also harm. Together, they will stand against the night.
Beyond the quintet Edit
Mr. Brett has said that he plans both more novellas, at least one stand-alone book in the Demon Cycle universe and hopefully a new series:
- "If you like my books, fear not! I will continue writing in the Demon Cycle world for the foreseeable future. I have plans for several novellas, a couple of stand-alone novels, and—the thing I am most excited about—a new demon cycle series."
