    Abandonsa

    I cannot say how much I admired this book! It was thought provoking and the depth of character development was exceptional. David Gemmell explored the complexities of war, and it's motivations, with both great compassion and brutal honesty. He also did an amazing job portraying Skilgannon's tormented conscience. I was never certain whether Skilgannon could be redeemed from his misdeads, and I admired the fact that he could not forgive himself. This story never takes the easy way out, and gives no emotional quarter. It evokes dislillusionment and hope with equal skill. And yet I find myself strangely uplifted at the end. I want to live like Druss, with my honor intact. But if I stumble, I hope I have Skilgannon's courage. I'll never forget this book!

    THIS BOOK IS A BIBLE

    This is one of the most exceptional books I have ever read. The story pulls you in, wanting to learn more about each character while adding in good action. When done, you will wish that you lost your memory and was able to read it over again, fresh.

    Amazing

    I have read many Gemmel books in the past and this one ranks among the best. You will be hard pressed to find a book as good as this. Hat's off to David

    Top Shelf!

    Gemmell's back! Yet another tour de force.I love this guy even though he doesn't always get it right. After the slightly disappointing 'Stormrider' this is much more like it. I've always had a preference for Drenai sagas having started out by reading 'Legend' back in 1990. 13 years later Druss is back in fine form with a great new character in Skilgannon aka The Damned. A great read!

    winning sword and sorcery tale

    Once he was a general of a great army, with much wealth and vast estates who waged war on the enemies of the women he loved, the woman who ants to take the throne of the Naashanites. He possessed the magical swords of Night and Day and no man could best him in battle but when he helped put Jianna on the throne, he realized her first love was power and so he left her. Jianna puts a price on his head and people believed Skilgannon was dammed because of the atrocities he committed while at war. For two years he sought peace as a priest but the outside world found out him and forced him to flee. In the city of Mellicane, the legendary Joinings, men and beast magically melded into one, were on the loose and Skilgannon along with another hero, the legendary Druss warrior, repelled the attacks. They joined forces to rescue a little girl held hostage by Skilgannon¿s greatest enemy, a child greatly beloved by Druss. Both knew this may be their last battle but they are true heroes determined to rescue a child from a madman. David Gemmell knows how to write a winning sword and sorcery tale starring a tortured hero (much like Elric of Melinbone) it is impossible to dislike him despite the atrocities he committed. The story line is fast-paced and rich in color with a villain reminiscent of Hannibal Lechter. Druss is a half-century in age and his time is passing yet he still has the power to instill fear into his enemies¿ hearts. WHITE WOLF is a stirring fantasy that will please fans of the genre.
