9780007492558: The Desert Spear (The Demon Cycle, Book 2) (Demon Cycle 2)

Continuing the impressive 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.

Review:

Praise for The Painted Man:

'I enjoyed The Painted Man immensely. Action and suspense all the way.' Terry Brooks

‘An absolute masterpiece… literally unputdownable, and deserves to be the next Big Thing in dark fantasy.'
www.ozhorrorscope.com.

'A very accomplished debut fantasy. Recommended.'
www.sfrevu.com.

Reader Reviews:
‘If the next two books in this series live up to this one it will be one day named as a classic fantasy series.’ Joanne (NSW)

‘What a book!!! I am going to go insane waiting for the sequel/s to come out!!’ Robert (NSW)

‘Fantastic first book for his trilogy!! This is a name to remember.’ Linda (NSW)

About the Author:

Peter went to the University at Buffalo, where he studied Dungeons & Dragons, fencing, and girls. Somehow, he also managed to earn a (totally useful!) Bachelor of Arts degree in English with a minor in Art History in 1995.

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 New York City with his wife Dani and two cats, Jinx and Max Powers.
