Until now, I've always felt that David Gemmell's best novels were those centered on the Drenai (with the Waylander books probably the best of those). The Rigante series was ok and I enjoyed those that involved the Sipstrassi but this book is certainly amongst my top 5 Gemmell books.

This isn't a standard sequel to Ironhand's Daughter - it tells of Sigarni's fairly brief (but important) involvement with another similar world. Perhaps it's because the characters are more sympathetic or perhaps Gemmell was better able to draw male characters than female but I found it a more compelling and enjoyable read than the first.

This book concerns Caswallon, a character who played a critical role in Sigarni's early life in the first book but who was only mentioned by name - this is his story and that of his adopted son. It's brutal in places, perhaps more brutal than any other Gemmell book but it's utterly compelling. From around half way through it's hard to put down.

A cracking read and heartily recommended to all Gemmell fans.

I have enjoyed this book on numerous occasions, having read this book before the prequel! I believe the mountain scenery and character interaction is what makes this book a little better than some of the others.

Gemmells books are always deep and involving but this one i found took you into the world quickly and kept you there. I dont wish to give away any plot lines but the hero is simple and enjoyable. A must read in my opinion

Format: Paperback
Supposedly Book 2 of the Hawk Queen trilogy, The Hawk Eternal has very little connection to Book 1 (Ironhand's Daughter). Worse, it lacks the vigour and vividness of Ironhand's Daughter. Although reasonably entertaining, The Hawk Eternal is uninspiring and all of its Highland characters are over-idealised into one-dimensional true-grit heroes.

This is the sequel to Ironhand's Daughter, and it is just as good. If you like heroic fantasy, or even if you don't, buy them. I have recommended them both to a lot of my friends and every single one of them are now as hooked on Gemmel as I am. He is in a class of his own when it comes to writing heroic fantasy, and this is some of his best work.

Format: Paperback
This book, following on from Ironhand's Daughter, starts down a very different path at the outset. Sometimes you wonder whether you are actually reading the sequel. The twists in time using the gates are quite numerous and sometimes require some careful thinking. As the book goes on however, the story becomes clear and this book is a fine completion to this story, albeit, the plot unwraps slowly and the finale and wrap up are done over the course of 20 pages. In some way it all seems a bit too convenient, almost as though the author lost interest in the end.

follows on well from previous book. I like the quirky link through the gates and through time.battles scenes are getting a bit formulaic now though - I think I could write them!

Good story, as ever, when by David Gemmell. He is/was a great writer all his books are worth reading at least once. So sad he is no longer with us.
