    Story
    "I almost gave it up with over half of the book in the desert spear."

    Didn't need to spend 10 hours on jardeers (spelling) history. I hope the series doesn't continue to do this with other characters; telling the same series of events in painstaking detail in someone news perspective.

    The narrator did a great job.

    "great"

    this sequel focused heavily on the relationship between characters, it was great seeing what each one felt in their own perspective. however it felt like a little fantasy/erotica during most of it.

    Story
    "Hard to get into..."

    I loved The Warded Man--rushed right through it--but this one is painful. I'm only in Chapter 4 and struggling with all the "creative naming" of everyday items and concepts. I recognize that he's creating a new world but it would be much friendlier (to me) if more of the names of things/demons/concepts, etc., were in "normal" language. This is a chore, rather than enjoyment, but I'm holding on and hoping The Warded Man characters appear sooner, rather than later. Fingers crossed. (Maybe the book would be friendlier if read rather than listened to.)

    Story
    "Liked, disliked, liked, disliked"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    This book confused me at first. It started with a different perspective involving the first book. The story premise is great, and I enjoy it when the author can focus on the story. But he fills, what I consider the story line, with sexual exploits, which may act as filler, but distracts from the story. Although disappointed in this aspect, of what could be a great fantasy novel.

    Having said that, I did purchase this second book after having problems with the first book, and now will purchase the third book given I am trapped into finding out the ending.

    Hopefully there will be a conclusion soon.

    "Excellent"

    Once you get by the lingo of the story, you get get lost in the tale. I'm really enjoying the series.

    "Fantastic"

    Very few times does a sequel surpass the first installment. I was pleasantly surprised this book did just that.

    "GREAT continuation"
    Would you listen to The Desert Spear again? Why?

    Yes, and I have a couple times


    What did you like best about this story?

    It's a great book and stronger than it's predecessor. This book goes into the culture of Jardir and frankly they're much more interesting than Arlen, Rojer and the lot, though I enjoyed them as well. I very strongly recommend the series!!
