Publisher's Summary

The White Lich has conquered Tanar Atain.

Soon, he means to take the entire world. Dante suspects his next target will be Bressel, where the Tanarians have established their court in exile. The only chance to stop the lich will be to forge a fragile alliance between the bitter enemies of three different lands: Tanar Atain, Mallon, and Narashtovik.

The city stands on the brink of rebellion. Yet even if Dante, Blays, and Gladdic can unite it, they still might not have the strength to stand against the army of the lich.

One last hope may stop the coming destruction: the legendary Spear of Stars. But the weapon was lost long ago. To find it again, they may have to travel further than they've ever known.

Another Galand hit!

Sad to say, but this was my least favorite of the series thus far, but, I still gave it 5 stars. Why? Because I still loved it! I mean, it's Dante and Blays and I could read a book about their mundane, everyday life and still be entertained.

<< POSSIBLE SPOILERS AHEAD>>

The reason the book is my least favorite is that the storyline is centered around battling the Lich and saving Bressel, but has very little to do with the actual title of the book; The Spear of Stars. Maybe the title -Battle of Bressel, or -The Lich War would have been more fitting. With that said, however, the book is stocked full of epic battle scenes, the familiar banter between our favorite characters, Nethermancers, Ethermancers, new allies, and new enemies, and everything else that Edward Robertson's world has compelled us to love.

WTF!!!

Apparently audible somehow downloaded the book out of order. I just got to chapter 15 only to discover that I had just listened to the entire second half of the book (which downloaded and played as chapters 1-14) and Chapter 15 is now starting off with the entire first half of the book. Ridiculous!!!!!!

This one was good.

So, these books are starting to get better again. The spear of light was a great and solid addition, while there is some dumbing down of Dante, it wasnt as severe as the Silver Theif book. The Spear of Light has been my favourite in the series and I'm eagerly waiting for the next entry.

Definitely worth the credit.

Book out of order

I really like this series but this books technical difficulties made me very upset. Instead of starting at the beginning of the book I was thrown into the middle and kept listening thinking it was a time jump from the last book, but when the book ended and started back up from where the previous book left off I just turned off the recording. Thanks for wasting my time audible

Unexpected progression with twists, mystery, humor

The Spear of Stars delivered exactly what I was looking forward to. I've listened to and/or read each one of the stories in this universe, from the Cycle of Arawn through the Cycle of Galand series. This volume featured more action than normal, but still managed a good tension cycle and was packed with plot rather than filler (unlike some stories... you know who you are ;)). There were mysteries to be uncovered, a large threat to manage, periods of hope in the struggle followed by setbacks. Overall, a very satisfying experience, like the other books in the series.

For potential listeners who are wondering what they are getting into, this is a swords and sorcery series that follows the life of Dante Galand and his childhood friend Blays Buckler through a variety of challenges, including those of self-discovery. The author builds and presents his characters pretty well, and while Blays and Dante share some mannerisms and speech, they grew up in a similar area and have spent much of their lives together. The focus of the stories is generally on presented external problems that usually involve mystery and clever solutions, and often grand adventure. There is some macabre humor, as Dante and Blays generally have to use whatever tools they have at hand to deal with a situation, and the solution isn't always nice and clean. Or... is hardly ever nice and clean really. So, expect lots of battles and blood and gore, but balanced by not being unnecessarily gruesome in description thus leaving you to stay in your immersion zone. Romance and sexual themes are general in nature and aren't usually focused greatly upon in the Cycle series, and are basically nonexistent in this leg of the story.

Very boring

This book lacked all the imagination of meeting new people, discovering new magic, powering up... it was one non stop battle with the litch that he never wins. The “special weapon” is never found and continues into the next book. Very disappointing...

zombies, means the writer ran out of content

The most boring thing a writer can do is make the villain a zombie hord. Insects, machines, necromancy, it doesn't matter, mass hordes of mindless monsters is boring, lame, and means the writer ran out of interesting things. 80% of This book can just be skipped and it doesn't effect the story. It is completely boring during all the boring zombie chapters. Did I mention boring? cause yeah boring.

Still a guilty pleasure

I’ve really enjoyed the books by Robertson. To be fair the storyline’s are becoming somewhat predictable as is the humour. I can almost state Blays lines before he does.

The white lich is becoming a bit of a flogged dead horse as an enemy and sadly that is killing off my interest. Much the same as the previous series.

That said it’s still good fun, Tim is a great narrator and there seems so little new content on audible at the moment that I’ll keep going.

Dante and Blayze continue their epic journey

The continued story of Dante & Blayze in their epic journey to defeat the white lich and his hordes of undead. The lads are on top form, quality banter and non stop drama.
As with all books in any series of non stop story there is a lot of catch up at the start but ramps up quickly and doesn't stop.

Fix the chapter order!

This review is purely technical. My chapter order is all out of wack! it starts with chapter 17. The actual chapter 1 starts at what the app says is 15. I just started it so we'll see if we actually have the full book albeit out of order.
