Format: Mass Market Paperback
I was excited to read this book because I loved the video game it is based on. From the very first page it totally pulls you in and you can picture being there, since you've already been there (in a virtual sense) in the game. The ruined city, crumbling buildings, rolling tanks, etc.
I was worried that the parts between the characters sniping missions would be slow and boring. Not so! The sniping parts are great and suspenseful. And between missions he's going from place to place meeting with informants and fellow agents, and it's just a really classic atmosphere. For instance, meeting with fellow undercover agents in the basement of an abandoned building to brief each other. The pacing is just perfect almost throughout.
I should also note there is some good close-quarters action in the book as well. It's not all sniping. Pistol shootouts, knife attacks, etc. are common in the book, and some surprising things happen, which catch you off guard, but really add to the intensity of the book. Let's just say that not all the good guys make it out alive in this book.
To be honest, I really only have one single complaint about the book, but it's kind of a significant one. Now, maybe I'm missing something, and If I am I apologize, but the ending seemed terribly contrived to me. SPOILER ALERT: The book could've ended at the battle in the square, when they secured both the missle and the case from the German carrying it. They already had him, so why on EARTH would they let him go?? The reason they give in the book makes no sense at all really, and it just sets up this really contrived ending that is robbed of the drama it should have because it is just not necessary.

Well, I've been a fan of the Sniper Elite game for years now... I just love it and i keep playing whenever I have a chance to. I came around the existence of this book about a year ago and I tried to get my hands on it as soon as possible, however the shipping for it was REALLY expensive. Amazon does not sell it anymore (only third-parties), so I waited until I had the chance to come to States and buy it.
Last week I finally got a copy and started to read it. The scenes that appear in the book resembles the game almost every time. The history itself is well written, third person character and with a good ending.
I don't really like to spoil things, so I'll leave this review without a resumé, but the only thing I can say for sure is that if you love the game, you'll love the book!

This book had an amazing story line. I have been interested in war, especially World War 2 for most of my life. Even a fiction novel catches my interest. Jaspre's writing really had a way to put you into the situations the sniper was in. Definitely worth your time to read and enjoy this book hopefully as Mich as I did.

A cheap and entertaining read for fans of the game. In fact, the story line is somewhat similar to Sniper Elite V2.

Spear of Destiny follows a sniper in WWII. Has some good technical info and has a decent plot. Very entertaining.
