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.

I'm really torn about how I feel about this book. On one hand I really liked the story and the characters. Thais was strong and independent. I loved every one of the Dakota clan and the bad guys were all suitably evil in their own unique ways. I even appreciated the dystopian world building that Harte did. The environment was distorted and appropriately foreign, while still being geographically recognisable.

However, on the other hand, I had a really hard time actually reading the book. I'm not a prude and I like a smouldering sex scene as well as the next reader. Hell, that's why I picked up a book by Harte in the first place. But while I get that this is a predominantly male, post-apocalyptic culture and language may have taken a resultant nose dive, the language in the book is really coarse. What one likes or dislikes is, of course, an individual preference. For me this was not sexy, not sexy at all. It grated on my nerves endlessly that a strong Amazonian woman would allow herself to be spoken to in such a degrading manner, even if she didn't really know any better.

Further, before reading the book, the synopsis' rule number 2 (Women are a precious commodity.) made me think women might have a respected place in this society. That's actually a large part of why I chose to read the book now instead of letting it rest in the TBR list. I was disappointed. They were almost exclusively raped, shared, or whored. Unfortunately rule number 1 (Procreation is necessary, not optional.) might better read, sex is necessary, not optional. Women really didn't have a choice in the matter. Every single one of them felt like a sexual victim.

Now, there was plenty of sex to be had here, but there was plot too.

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.

"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."
