This is the first ever Gemmell book I read(I found it in my dads bookcase) and read it in 2 days. It is simply superb and a novel for others to aspire to. The plot is brilliant ,dark and fascinating, the characters are much more subtle than your everyday heroes and heroines. This book shows that heroes don't always ride white stallions and carry magic swords, a modern day classic. David Gemmell the king of fantasy.

Waylander is my favourite David Gemmell character ever, head and shoulders above the rest. A good man turned bad, or a bad man turned good? Read all three and then decide.

A classic, not to be missed.

Format: Paperback
He is the Waylander, a man of mystery and a dark past, on a path to redemption. Standard heroic fantasy you might think but this is David Gemmell don't forget and he tells a story in the same fashion that made the original Star Wars films so great. He writes with real depth to his characters, where everyone is a product of their own pasts. There is some good in the villians and bad in the heroes and this is what makes nearly all of Gemmell's works at best brilliant and at worst entertaining. The Waylander moves somewhere between the two as the main hero lacks the brutish innocence of Druss or the hard charisma of Connavar, two of his greatest characters. If you have, like myself, read Druss first, then this is a great book. If you are new to Gemmell then start with the excellent LEGEND and then pick this up. These tales really take me back to my childhood favorites Conan and Michael Moorcock's Elric. Good book with a good story.

This is the first book i ever read (other than kid's books) 5 years later and i'v now come back to Gemmell's books. Although i'd agree with earlier reviews that it is not his best work i have to say that it has more to it than just the story. At first i thought he was saying how strongly and easily good and evil can change each other. Now i think he was asking 'what is good and evil?' eg, Waylander kills people but noone that doesnt deserve it, is he still evil? And Dardalion helps the helpless, but fights in the war and kill, is still good?
All i can say is read this book, and think long and hard about what its saying (and enjoy the story!)

David Gemmel shows off his talent in this book. The book is a non stop read, once it is up it does't go down. I got in trouble many times at school for not paying attention in lessons. This book is an action packed book, U SHOULD READ IT!

Waylander is a smashing piece of work, and is top novel (in my view) in the Drenai saga. I enjoyed the way Dakeyras is totally unlike your average hero with golden blonde hair and shining white armour, and i actually prefered it to the sequal, Waylander 2. In short, Waylander is a breath of fresh air from your run of the mill fantasy.It's the best thing since sliced bread.

I'm gradually working my way through all of Gemmell's books; I love this author! Waylander is wonderful, full of passion, drama, emotion, humour, etc. I love the way Gemmell develops his charactors - as ever - mourning their loss as I complete each book. In Waylander, Kai's story (Kai is a brief, but important charactor) had me sobbing! I'm hoping that he'll materialise again in Waylander 11 , because I desperately need him to find love and acceptance :)
I'm not sure if Waylander is an ideal first Gemmell to read, but I can't praise Gemmell's work highly enough! I've loved every one of his books so far!
