Since the Night of Endless Swords, a bloody battle the Kings of Sharakhai narrowly won, the kings have been hounding the rebels known as the Moonless Host. Many have been forced to flee the city, including Çeda, who discovers that the King of Sloth is raising his army to challenge the other kings' rule.
When Çeda finds the remaining members of the Moonless Host, now known as the thirteenth tribe, she sees a tenuous existence. Çeda hatches a plan to return to Sharakhai and free the asirim, the kings' powerful, immortal slaves. The kings, however, have sent their greatest tactician, the King of Swords, to bring Çeda to justice for her crimes.
But the once-unified front of the kings is crumbling. The surviving kings vie quietly against one another, maneuvering for control over Sharakhai. Çeda hopes to use that to her advantage, but whom to trust? Any of them might betray her.
As Çeda works to lift the shackles from the asirim and save the thirteenth tribe, the kings of Sharakhai, the scheming queen of Qaimir, the ruthless blood mage, Hamzakiir, and King of Swords all prepare for a grand clash that may decide the fate of all.

Minimal character growth, good world building.
The audio performance itself is great, but I got to the point where I *REALLY* wish I could just skip every single cheda segment (skipping thirty seconds a bunch doesn't scale well). She demonstrated *ZERO* growth as a character throughout the book and was so insanely naive I started tuning her out.
The world building is top notch, and the direction of the story itself seems OK (although I sort of wish that the MC loses the plot armour and tragically dies; that or actually stop being so insanely naive)

Best Book Of The Series So Far
A Veil of Spears is my favorite book of the The Song of Shattered Sands series so far. After really enjoying the first book, the second seemed to drag a bit as more attention was given to secondary characters. A Veil of Spears returns the focus to Cheda, returning the series to the excitement of the first book. The other characters still have their storyline, and there were a few other added as well, but by keeping Ceda the center of attention sped the action along.
Narration from Sarah Coomes still remains hit and miss for me, but overall she continues to do a fairly good job. Overall, I am enjoying this series and am looking forward to the next book.
