PETER BRETT at FORBIDDEN PLANET

The Desert Spear pulls 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 he became the Painted Man. But the figure emerging from the desert is not Arlen. He is a friend and betrayer, and though he carries the spear from the Deliverer's tomb, he heads a vast army intent on a holy war against the demon plague.
