I thought it was slightly better than Desert Spear. There was definitely some big battles and Arlen finally reveals what he's capable of. There was also a face off between the Warded Man and the Deliverer. Speaking of which, there is less Jardir and Abban in this book and more Innerva and her plotting. There's also a lot of Renna in this one. The book ends in something of a tv style cliffhanger, which is somewhat unusual.
