Those are the two major author I have followed from my youth. Skilgannon is an extremely formidable fighter on par with Druss in his prime. Druss also learns that Rowena has married Michanek and that her memory has been erased. I really wanted to like this, I wanted to love it in fact. If not a complete counter example, Legend is a book where the rule loses its effect. Mightiest man of his era. Battles like these easily become legends.
A decent book with some really good sides. While I will never be a master swordsman or a deadly warrior and I have never committed atrocities on a large scale, I still empathize with him as a person who has many regrets and failings but is searching for a way to overcome them and become a better person. This type of philosophy is highly relatable to every reader as these are all things which people ask or wonder. The novel ends shortly after Tanaka manages to behead Ceska an ending that sounds untimely. Tales of Dunk and Egg 7.
But who will mourn for me? The world not terribly unique or innovative. Gemmell doesn't pull his punches and it was brutal at times which is something I always appreciate. Declaring he would make Scottish revolutionary victorious if he had written about the 13th century, he realised eventually that this world would be only possible in fantasy setting. But it's ultimately weak, skeletal, and insignificant in almost every way. It is a series that inspires, creates all the kind of thrill that every heroic fantasy will want to read. The preparation for battle and the war itself are masterfully written.
I recommend it if you want some light reading. How do I justify this? But when I re-read it a few weeks ago, I have to admit being concerned it would not live up to my memories; my fear that all the years since its release having muted the pulse-pounding, adrenaline rush and relegated another classic fantasy into a fallen favorite. Druss is the grandson of Bardan the Slayer, a psychotic madman driven insane by the demon residing within his rune covered enchanted axe, Snaga the Sender Druss later exorcised the demon while looking for his wife Rowena. Ordinary men stand side-by-side with rich commanders and wanted outlaws. The five star rating is of course a matter of taste. With assassins on his trail and an army of murderous foes ahead, the Damned sets off on a quest to bring the dead to life.

There are a lot An unfathomably numerous Nadir army heads to the mighty stronghold of Dros Delnoch to either accept surrender or slaughter their defenders.
He is an honourable man and becomes concerned when she falls ill. All of the characters in general were just ok. I think a lot of fans are angry that the third book is taking so long, but NotW gets high praise most of the time, even in the old place. Gemmell was born in August 1948 in West London. We reserve the right to remove discussion that does not fulfill the mission of. One of those who has always tried his best and had some success with it is the now aging Druss, Captain of the Axe, the one called The Legend. I've just finished Sin of an Empire by Brian McClellan and it reminded me how much I love his work.
After Oshikai's death the Nadir splintered into dozens of separate tribes and were oppressed by the Gothir for centuries. Those privileged to know him were blessed indeed. And even though it barely reached 350 pages, this gem is a true Epic! Three separate sub-series, each centred around a particular protagonist, operate within the larger Drenai meta-series. Eventually the Drenai gain their freedom in the events leading up to. The first one on there that I haven't read yet is David Gemmell's Drenai Saga, so I plan on starting there.
