Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

About the Author

David Gemmell was born in London, England, in the summer of 1948. Expelled from school at sixteen, he became a bouncer by night, 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. This talent eventually led to a job as 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.

Charles Kerchner, October 30, 2013 (view all comments by Charles Kerchner)
"It's not his fault that he's an unstoppable killing machine." describes it to the core. My favorite of the Waylander books. Each and every enemy is eliminated in a consistent and satisfying manner, as all of the heros/heroines, likely and not, have their turn to shine. These three Waylander books have turned me on to heroic fantasy.
