Legend (Drenai) by David Gemmell
Legend (Drenai) by David Gemmell
I love fantasy. It is my favourite genre, so I'm kind of surprised that I've waited so long to try David Gemmell. I don't know why I waited so long, but I'm glad I finally got here.

Itís such a pleasant change of pace to read an entire story in one book. Being accustomed to several books, released over many years to tell one long story, I was worried that a story, told in a single book would lack breadth and depth. It didnít.

I've been a big fan of Fischer since I first read The Thought Gang and while this is no Thought Gang, it does find laugh out moments in the utterly mundane failures of Tyndale Nelson and his embarrassing medical problem.
