Peter Brett’s The Desert Spear continues the post-apocalyptic adventure he began in his highly acclaimed debut, The Warded Man.
The world remains under siege by demonkind stalking the land when the sun goes down. But a new hero has risen from the desert. Claiming to be the mythical Deliverer, Ahmann Jardir now rides alongside the allied desert tribes of Krasia. Jardir and his fellows are on an epic quest to vanquish the demons plaguing the world and bring humanity back from the brink of extinction.
Listen to the first book, The Warded Man.

The world is captivating and quite unique, but the consistent sexual overtone was wearing as it didn't add to the story, but was more a filler. I started skipping through certain characters chapters as they once again appear to be filler (since they're secondary characters)
I'm ecstatic that I've come across this series and took a chance. almost on the same level as the bulgariad series but not quite on the same field as the sword of truth epics. with at being said, comparing this to two of my favorite series of all time is saying something.
The first half of this book picks up on the other side of the last books time in the desert spear. It continues in similarly well written and exciting fashion and really drives the series along. Then comes about 15 hours of over sexualized meandering amounting to basically nothing.
No idea, have only listened to it but I will say it would be hard to beat now that I'm used to the nariator
I can't think of one, it's really been fun for me to listen to and its not close to previous books I've experienced. Looking forward to Book #3
I liked the strength of the female characters and the twists and turns and unpredictability
