He was known as Druss. The Deathwalker. Though the blood of merciless butchers coursed through his veins, he had found a fragile peace through his love for beautiful, mystical Rowena. Then came the day when Druss returned to their village and found everyone dead--massacred by slavers who had stolen the women to sell for gold. Rowena was among the missing.
Armed with only his powerful double-bladed ax, Snaga, Druss went after Rowena. His journey would carry him from the highest thrones of power to the deepest dungeons of depravity. Along the way, he would battle savage monsters and descend into terrifying lands of black magic and demons.
Yet one thing was certain. Druss would have victory . . . or death.

Great heroic fantasy.
I have collected all this author's books. This one is on a par with the best of them. Features Druss the Legend, one of this author's best characters.
Fast paced, adventure filled, with a dash of wonder and yes, philosophy. All you could ask for.
One of the best he will be missed.
David Gemmell was one of, if not the very best when it comes to detailing the sadness and heroic endeavors of men during times of war. His rich fantasy backgrounds are held together by deep character development and flow with the ease of an epic movie. He paints such vivid and detailed images of men fighting g side by side, there are no soft chapters filled with pages and pages of love and politics. He writes books for fans who love to imagine the clashing of steel and the spilling of blood in the name of country, saving princesses and stopping evil shamans from taking over the world.
