Classic Gemmell, 7 April 2003
Gemmell does it again! White Wolf follows in the footsteps of his previous work such as 'Legend' and 'Sword in the Storm' by creating such a strong character in 'Skilgannon the Damned' that you never won't the story to end.
By inter-weaving Skilgannon's past with his present situation, Gemmell expertly briefs you in the history of the character without getting bogged down like other authors and led away from the story.
The references to previous story lines such as Druss's appearance at Dros Delnoch, and Waylander's cross-bow, help link all of the author's previous gripping Drenai titles and brings the whole world to life.
As soon as I had finished this book, I wanted to read it again. Definately up there with Gemmell's best work and with the introduction of a Skilgannon, he has created a character that could rival the popularity of Druss.
