Continuing the impressive debut fantasy series from author Peter V. Brett, The Desert Spear is book two of the Demon Cycle, pulling the reader into a world of demons, darkness and heroes.

The Deliverer has returned, but who is he?

Arlen Bales, formerly of the small hamlet of Tibbet’s Brook, learnt harsh lessons about life as he grew up in a world where hungry demons stalk the night and humanity is trapped by its own fear. He chose a different path; chose to fight inherited apathy and the corelings, and eventually he became the Painted Man, a reluctant saviour.

But the figure emerging from the desert, calling himself the Deliverer, is not Arlen. He is a friend and betrayer, and though he carries the spear from the Deliverer’s tomb, he also heads a vast army intent on a holy war against the demon plague… and anyone else who stands in his way.

About the author

Following college, Peter spent approximately 8 months managing a comic shop and pondering what to do with his life. He then went into medical publishing, squandering ten years of his physical prime sitting in a cubicle. He contented himself with writing books he never hoped to sell.
In June of 2007, his hard work and perseverance paid off, as he sold his 4th novel, THE PAINTED MAN, and in October of 2007, he left his day job to pursue writing full time.
He lives in Brooklyn NY .

    Another engrossing read! Loved Jardir's back story, but I still cant figure out if he's a douche bag or not. Looking forward to the next instalment.

    Feel this knits the series in a creative an ingenious direction. Not only with the innovative plot but I believe the characters development deepens brilliantly. I genuinely hope this continues and cannot wait for book 3.

    I found the painted man at a school Christmas fayre a couple of weeks ago. Not the usual type of book I'd go for but I was immediately hooked. I downloaded this one and read in 2 days. Highly recommend both books. Love the correlation between christianity and Islam. Fantastic and can't wait to see what happens to the one!

    Took a while to get into it but only one word describes this book "Awesome!"
  • As a book should be

    This and the first were both books I refused to put down once I started. Every opportunity to follow the adventure as it progresses. The only disappointment is when the end is reached and having to patiently wait for the next instalment.
