The King Beyond the Gateby David Gemmell
Synopses & Reviews
Once the mighty fortress had stood strong, defended by the mightiest of all Drenai heroes, Druss, the Legend. But now a tyrannical, mad emperor had seized control of the fortress, and his twisted will was carried throughout the land by the Joinings --- abominations that were half-man, half-beast. Tenaka Khan was a half-breed himself, hated by the Drenai for his Nadir blood and despised by the Nadir for his Drenai ancestry. But he alone had a plan to destroy the emperor. The last heroes of the Drenai joined with him in a desperate gamble to bring down the emperor — even at the cost of their own destruction.
It is a hundred years after the epic battle of Dros Delnoch. Now the fate of the Drenai people lies in the hands of a new ruler--someone hated by both the Drenai and the Nadir, their eternal enemies. Someone with the blood of both races in his veins.
