I don't intend this as a full review (not that I do very good reviews anyway), but I wanted to make a quick post saying how much I enjoyed this (rather long) novel, which is the sequel to The Warded Man.

While that first book dealt with the people of the North in general, and main characters Arlen, Leesha and Rojer, The Desert Spear deals largely with Jardir, the "deliverer" from the demons who comes from the desert regions, and whose people have adopted an almost Islamic way of life in order to deal with the threat of the demons.

The story spills into the north, and we catch up with Leesha, Arlen, Renna and Rojer, and watch how their stories end up intersecting with the story of Jardir and the followers of "Everam".

It was a long read but it got to be one of those that I didn't want to stop reading as I got further into the story. I can't wait for the third (and final?) installment.
