Overview

The First Chronicles of Druss the Legend by David Gemmell

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.

About 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 talent 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.

Cound't put this book down! I was never a person who read much until a friend recomended this book. Now I've read all of the Drenai Series, with this as my favorite book. Druss is much like Superman if he had an axe instead of invulnerability and heat vision!

WARNING: Reading this book may result in a longing to go on an adventures and a desire to become a Hero...

A real man who never fears death , a rare man who would travel 7 years to search for his lost love , a cool man facing a batallion of armies at Skeln Pass , a kind spirit in search of balance in his heart , a born warrior with the ability to kill but yet he despises it , a lonely soul who cries in his heart but yet shows no tears... Druss redefines the meaning of a HERO

David Gemmell is absolutely fantastic.... He and Feist are the two best authors in this genre ... hands down. Gemmell's characters are always well developed and come to life in your mind. Druss is probably my favorite hero from ANY book I have ever read. The Drenai series is at the top of my list... a must read.

I read at least one book every month. David Gemmell is to fantasy what Mark Twain is to story telling!
