Peter Brett’s The Desert Spear continues the post-apocalyptic adventure he began in his highly acclaimed debut, The Warded Man.

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.

detailed and well thought out
gave a clear image to as what is going on at that time
read with feeling
Was not sure about this book after i read what was about and the cover,but was not what i expected. caught my attention an held it
Please read my review of "The Warded Man".... and double it!!!! When I told my husband the story gets even better, he couldn't believe me. The details regarding multiple cultures, lands, traditions... wonderful. Peter V. Brett is a guy I would LOVE to sit around a campfire with, an interesting mind. What more can you get from BUF?
I love this story and I am now a fan of Peter Brett. It is fantasy, but it has many cultural parallels to the real world. Peter Brett treats the different cultures with honest respect. How refreshing! Brett also develops romantic relationships and their trials almost as good as my favorite female fantasy writers. High honors, coming from someone like me who reads almost every female fantasy writer out there. I did not want the book to end! I was left with my mouth hanging open, thinking... "what?" "it's over?" "oh no!"
I can't wait to hear more Peter Brett. Preferably performed again by Pete Bradbury who has done a terrific job with this interpretation.
The book starts off slowly, but ends perfectly. Plenty of action and no painfully idiotic actions by any of the character that some books indulge in to keep you on your toes. The story was enough to keep me going.
You get to experience the development of different characters.
I hope this series keeps going! It truly fascinates me. I just recommended it to 10 of my friends and family without being asked to recommend anything. I don't usually tell anyone that they will like something but I actually stated it like that to all those I have told about it. I think I am in love with the adult Arlin Bales and he's just a character in a book!! ( Sorry to my sweet husband if he reads this review and figures out it's me)
I really enjoyed the warded man. This second book was also good. My only complaint was that the ending seemed rushed. I am looking forward to the next book.
This is one of my all time faviorate series! I love to read but the book on tape may be even better the narrator made the story come so alive. I can not wait for the next part of the series to come out. You are truly missing out if this is not already part of your collection.
While the first book was enjoyable, The Desert Spear feels more mature and characters have a greater depth. I'm quite pleased with this series and look forward to the next book.
I was a little weirded out to see the perspective of the basic bad guy for the first third of the book, but I really liked this book. I am really looking forward the third book. We learned more about the demons and the effects of the wards on humans and the healer woman seems to keep playing a game of musical love interests changing with every location by being interested in guys who are crap and ignoring quality guys, oh and being attracted to guys who can't handle a relationship at the current time (warded man). Overall a good book with an ending I didn't expect.
Well written, well paced, well worth every moment.
All the people who gave this a bad review think a little too much of their own opinions. (Ernie)
It's a fabulous book. Opens up The Warded Man's initial world, and makes it even more vast.
Loved it!!!! Can't wait for book 4.
