Waylander is 'ard!!!
on 8 February 2002
Waylander is by far Gemmels best character. In the first book he is a ruthless assassin, who after unwittingly plunging his country into war, begins to doubt his morals.
In the sequel he is a father and has settled down to lead a quiet life in the hills. But echoes of his past return to haunt him.
This book sets a fast pace, incorperating a doomed journey, the defense of a homeland, and target that simple must be assassinated - no matter what the cost.
The action is gripping and well timed, yet even if this book had not one action scene in it, it would still be a classic because of the superb cast of characters. Not only has Gemmel made several stunning characterisations, but he makes their personalities clash so you are always interested in what they have to say to one another.
