5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome!, 5 April 2002
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Stormrider (Rigante) (Hardcover)
Stormrider is David Gemmell's sequal to Ravenheart continuing his "Rigante" series. While you don't need to be a Gemmell fan to enjoy this book it makes sense to read at least "Ravenheart" first.
Set in the days of pistols and muskets fans of TV series Sharpe will recognise the change in the pitch of battle compared to Gemmell's previous hack and slash battles.
The book revives a darker side to Gemmels heroes who while being men of principle and honour are capable of darker deeds than the blackest villain.
While the last book focused on Kaelin Ring and his indominatble uncle Jaim Grymach this story focuses on the Storm rider Gaise Macon, son of the evil Moidart. Gemmell twists and turns his charecters with rare skill making the evil Moidart a hero and the Valiant Gaise an atrocious killer.
Stormrider while typical Gemmel fare is an amazingly well thought out and thought provoking book, the points he makes on good and evil, on heroes and cowards are intuitive and inspiring.
A brilliant book and a brilliant read, I picked this up and didn't stop reading it until I was finished.
Awesome
