The Desert Spear by Peter V. Brett


The Desert Spear, which just hit the shelves in April, is the sequel to Brett’s highly acclaimed novel, The Warded Man. Both are published by Del Rey–the former in hardcover while the latter is now available in both hardcover and paperback.

(One interesting fact about The Warded Man: the book was typed by the author on his Blackberry while riding New York’s subways. Wow. Now that is determination!)

Here’s the official blurb:

The sun is setting on humanity. The night now belongs to voracious demons that arise as the sun sets, preying upon a dwindling population forced to cower behind ancient and half-forgotten symbols of power. These wards alone can keep the demons at bay, but legends tell of a Deliverer: a general—some would say prophet—who once bound all mankind into a single force that defeated the demons. Those times, if they ever existed, are long past. The demons are back, and the return of the Deliverer is just another myth… or is it?

Out of the desert rides Ahmann Jardir, who has forged the warlike desert tribes of Krasia into a demon-killing army. He has proclaimed himself Shar’Dama Ka, the Deliverer, and he carries ancient weapons—a spear and a crown—that give credence to his claim. Sworn to follow the path of the first Deliverer, he has come north to bring the scattered city-states of the green lands together in a war against demonkind—whether they like it or not.
