Publisher Comments:

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.

Synopsis:

Armed only with his family's deadly heirloom, a powerful double-bladed axe called Snaga, Druss journeys through strange kingdoms to rescue his wife, battling savage monsters and descending into terrifying lands of black magic and demons.

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.

Brett, August 24, 2013 (view all comments by Brett)
OK I admit it - the books in this series are so well written they can make me cry. Gemmell is an astute observer on human nature, writes excellent battle scenes, and - spoiler alert - when a loved one of a character dies, you can feel the loss alongside that person. Rousing action yarn may sound cliche but Gemmell's books on Druss the Axeman always deliver. This book is a prequel of sorts, but even though you know the characters and their future, you still care what happens. Another fine book by an author who left this world too early.
