Publisher Description

BONUS: Now with twenty pages of bonus material, including an exclusive interview with Peter V. Brett, and an excerpt from Peter V. Brett's The Daylight War.

The sun is setting on humanity. The night now belongs to voracious demons that prey upon a dwindling population forced to cower behind half-forgotten symbols of power. Legends tell of a Deliverer: a general who once bound all mankind into a single force that defeated the demons. But is the return of the Deliverer just another myth? Perhaps not. Out of the desert rides Ahmann Jardir, who has forged the desert tribes 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. But the Northerners claim their own Deliverer: the Warded Man, a dark, forbidding figure. Once, the Shar’Dama Ka and the Warded Man were friends. Now they are fierce adversaries. Yet as old allegiances are tested and fresh alliances forged, all are unaware of the appearance of a new breed of demon, more intelligent—and deadly—than any that have come before.

Look for Peter V. Brett’s complete Demon Cycle:
THE WARDED MAN | THE DESERT SPEAR | THE DAYLIGHT WAR | THE SKULL THRONE | THE CORE

The Desert Spear

Best Story Ever. I’m actually upset I’m reading through these books so fast. I simply don’t want it to end

Second book is worth a look

This book leaves behind many of the characters we were introduced to in the first book for a long while. The furthering of the world is nice but this book isn't a self contained story. Recommended only for fans of "The Warded Man"

Sif Food ,

A little slow in the beginning

Cared very little for the past of Jardir. Although I did enjoy reading the parts with him and Abban greatly. Dragged on more than I liked. Not as good as the first but still an enjoyable read.
