Overview

"Gemmell . . . keeps the mythic currents crackling."

—Publishers Weekly

John Shannow, The Jerusalem Man, lived in a world that had toppled on its axis. Civilization had been replaced by ruthlessness and savagery. Relentless in his quest for peace, Shannow followed a path that led only to bloodshed and sorrow.

Abaddon, the Lord of the Pit, sought to plunge mankind into a new Satanic era. His Hellborn army spewed forth from the Plague Lands with an unholy force stemming from human sacrifice. For it was the blood of innocents that fueled the corrupted Sipstrassi Stones of Power—the source of Abaddon's might.

But the Hellborn made a fatal mistake—they took the woman who had stolen Shannow's heart. He would move Heaven and Earth to save her or he would die trying.

Meet the Author

David Gemmell was born in London, England, in the summer of 1948. Expelled from school at sixteen for organizing a gambling syndicate, he became a laborer by day, and at night his six-foot-four-inch, 230-pound frame allowed him to earn extra money as a bouncer working nightclubs in Soho.

Born with a silver tongue, Gemmell rarely needed to bounce customers, relying on his gift of gab to talk his way out of trouble. At eighteen this gift led to a job as a trainee journalist, and he eventually worked as a freelancer for the London Daily Mail, Daily Mirror, and Daily Express. His first novel, Legend, was published in 1984 and has remained in print ever since. He became a full-time writer in 1986. David lives with wife, Valerie, and his two children, Kate and Luke, in Hasting, England.

David Gemmells ability to tell a story completely describes the main character Jon Shannow, the Jerusalem Man. In the meantime this book brings up a unique philosophy and approach to commitments and beliefs.

This book simultaneously defends and attacks religous beliefs and human emotions. It does an excellent job of pointing out mankinds foibles by making one man experience and encounter them all. Jon Shannow, the Jeruselum Man, may be the most well developed character ever invented.

The way the author mixes the textures of Jon Shannow's love for Donna and his cold ability to kill turns a man, which, if veiwed with only his killings, would be a cold and ruthless animal. Instead, we have a person that is not some super human killer, but perhaps more human that we are, for as he controls the killing ability again and again, it is forced to the surface. Also, the biblical lines and surface plots are not lane down heavily, but only serve to strengthen the truth in this man as he searches for the truth in life in a city that may already be destroyed. I can safely say that anyone will enjoy this book.
