Publisher's Summary

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.

    "Series is managing to get stronger"

    I've found this series well written overall. Strong primary character definition and so far, no easy way out plot explanations. Definitely worth checking out if you're into fantasy fiction.

    Story
    "Spells are a dime a dozen now and boring too"
    What did you like best about The Desert Spear? What did you like least?

    The story has nearly gone of the rails for my liking. The first book was totally engaging, I was drawn into the characters and the relatively simple story, deep in character and simple in plot that is. This book has totally turned that on its head, starting with complicated, long over done back story of characters I didnt particularly care for in the first place. Also the dangerous creatures that few could deal with in the first book are mowed down like chord wood in this book, by just anyone who is handed a spell. I was very disappointed and will have to carefully read reviews before purchasing 3rd book


    Any additional comments?

    There are so many wonderfully entertaining books, like the first of this series, I may never get back to this series.

    "Great book it's a little rape heavy though"

    I really enjoyed this book. Character development is incredible but the rape scenes are a little much for a driving story.

    "You hope for more"

    Lots of running around in circles . I wish there was a little more moment. The addition of child abuse kinda threw me off.

    Story
    "Disgusting promotion of rape and incest."

    By half way through the second book of the series, the frequent portrayals of rape and incest in a positive light overshadowed the interesting parts of the story. The author seemed obsessed with sex and returned to it frequently.

    "Great Book!"

    I know that some people were frustrated with the focus on Jardier, but I thought the story was exceptional!

    "Great original series!"

    There are definitely new tricks to storytelling that I've never encountered with this GREAT series!!! I've plowed through the first two books in less than a month and plan of devouring the third as quick as possible!

    kind of slow. I would only buy it with a token. There is more character development but no real heart pounding action found in the first two.
