Slashed by a Spear Shaft, the exciting continuation of the Spear series by Douglas Owen.
Years of training taught the Spears how to survive and serve the Realm. Now, after a hard year of travelling to the Teeth of the Word, Jon left with the elf Fletch.
The Realm is now in turmoil and the Capital is in the hands of a militia force bent on subjugation. Thomasyn and Bethany must find a way to save their new found friends and their old one.
But there is something else lingering. The Elven Empire has something to do with the problems in the Realm, and before they find Jon, Thomasyn and Bethany, now accompanied by another of their Clutch mates, Sandra, must find out how to save those they love. And while all this happens, Thomasyn finds himself attracted to the newest member of their group.
And as Bethany finds herself struggling with her own identity, King Darious lets his true feelings be known. Now she needs to decide between duty and honor, or possible love.
Slashed by a Spear Shaft is a four book series for young adult readers aged 13 years and older. The writing is crisp, clean and does not insult the intelligence of the young minds who will be reading the story. The whole series is based on the idea that young adults are more intelligent than they are given credit for, and should realize that their lives are far better than those around them.
