I received a complimentary copy of this book from the author in exchange for a fair and honest review.

A smoking hot post apocalyptic romance, Tip of the Spear by Marie Harte, is the first book in her amazon Western series. With dynamic primary characters, scintillating dialogue, and plenty of action, Ms. Harte grabbed my attention from the first page and never let it go. The world building was well developed and blended well into the story, it never detracted from what was taking place between the characters. Tossing in some interesting other worldly creatures and some intriguing abilities, Ms. Harte has created a world unlike anything I've ever read before.

Thais, an Amazon Guardian, is on a mission of retrieval and vengeance. Tasked with locating the Amazon Queen's stolen crown and executing judgment on the man who stole it, she leaves the jungle world she knows to travel through what is left of the world as we know it. A warrior trained in self defense and war skills, she knows nothing of the new world she finds herself in and has no respect for most of it's inhabitants. Especially the men she encounters. Agreeing to help another woman get justice in exchange for information on the man she's tracking, Thais suddenly finds herself saddled with a male tracker, who's more than what he first appears. She just never planned on falling in love with him or on her sudden awakening to sexual pleasure.

Hinto Dakota is a man with a mission, determined to earn enough gold from his bounty hunting to pay for his father's medical care, he finds himself agreeing to help an alluring woman locate a personal bounty. Riding "Beast", his dependable vore (horse-like creature), he's attracted to Thais, who he's sure is a virgin.

Set in a post-apocalyptic world, Thais is a guardian with the Amazons. She knows how to protect herself, having honed her self-defense and battle skills. When the Amazon Queen's crown is stolen, Thais is tasked with the job of finding it and giving justice to the one who stole it. However, Thais has never traveled out of the Amazon jungle, so she knows she will have to be extra alert of all of her surroundings.

Hinto Dakota is a bounty hunter. He's very good at what he does, and he is saving his earnings to help his ailing father. When he runs into Thais, who is in need of assistance tracking her prey, he offers up his services. He could use the money and Thais is really easy on the eyes.

Thais surprises Hinto with her warrior skills. She is almost as good as he is. He is very charismatic and Thais, who hasn't been around men, finds herself out of her element. But as the two form a friendship, it blossoms into something more. The sparks fly fast and hot in this futuristic romance.

TIP OF THE SPEAR is unlike any western I have ever read. With my love of dystopian and fantasy, I found TIP OF THE SPEAR to be a perfect blend of both, with romance and western elements key in this masterfully told story. The world-building is intriguing, the characters likable and the writing seamless, keeping this reader riveted, page by page. Highly recommend!

Another excellent story by Marie Harte. This series is really original and I have to say this one is on the level with her Storm Lords series, which I personally thought was her best work. As always her focus on detail and in-depth characters was right on, but the story line on this was by far one of her best writing yet. Can't wait to see where she goes with this one. As always she opens you up to a whole new world and teases you with a taste of other characters that will leave you dying to meet them.
I highly recommend you read this one, you won't be disappointed.

I will admit I approached this book with a bit of trepedation. While I'm a fan of Marie Harte's writing I am not a fan of historical books so wasn't sure what I would find.

While this says it's an amazon western do not be fooled into thinking it's your regular western type romance. I loved the world crafting and the subtle differences between this world and our historical western era.
The Amazon's have suffered a tragedgy brought on by the most common of human errors in someone wanting to get revenge. Unfortunatly this devested the Amazons and some of the remaining tribe are moving through the world looking to retrieve the Queens Crown and extract their own revenge.
The world is far different from what we know yet a honest cowboys values shine through. I struggled to put this down and really enjoyed my glimpse into Thais and Hinto's lives

The confusion that Thais felt was very clear and completely understandable. I'm now hooked and wanting to know how the rest of the amazon's stories unfold. Certaninly hoping that Hinto's brothers are also meantioned in subsequent books as would love to explore their characters further.

"One of the most unique plots that I've read this year, this post-apocalyptic creation is a rare find. Exceptionally layered with clever world-building, a New West is born after a cataclysmic event that almost destroys the world. Can a female Amazon warrior get the revenge she craves, or will meeting a handsome bounty hunter in the western territories land her more than enough to handle?

The story begins in the year 1156 NB, which stands for New Beginning. After a devastating storm that almost destroyed the earth, some of the people who are left have a whole new appreciation of the world around them, some have also inherited special talents, and others are filled with enough meanness to qualify them as wild westerners. The highest law of the territories is to respect the land, but respecting each other? That could be a whole other matter.

Erotic romance at its finest, TIP OF THE SPEAR is creative and addictive. Marie Harte's unique storytelling skills captivate, ensuring that you'll anticipate the next book, while disappointed to let the current couple go. With carnivorous horses exhibiting intelligence beyond a normal horse, plants and trees that come alive with a taste for human blood, sexy men just waiting for the right woman, plus some men and women too evil to consider ‒ you're never quite sure what Ms. Harte will come up with next. TIP OF THE SPEAR is completely entertaining, and in true series-romance style, Ms. Harte made me over-the-top anxious for book two, BITE OF THE BLADE, due out in 2013. If you like your romance reading erotically charged amongst a clever world, within a story that's completely intriguing, then you'll love TIP OF THE SPEAR."
