The Desert Spear: Book Two of The Demon Cycle

The Desert Spear - Peter V. Brett I thought The Warded Man was only OK overall; it started well, but ended on a underwhelming note. Brett's a capable writer at the beginning, but then he seemed to lose track of the story near the end. So I'm still on the fence about whether or not to pick up this second installment and continue the journey. I hear it's good, though I have yet to come across a review or recommendation that could sway me in one way or another.
