Product description

Review

A fresh chance to sample the work of a departed master. (SFX)

Nothing short of incredible. (SCIFIBULLETIN)

Gemmell captures all of this perfectly. He tells a crime tale routed in social commentary. He captures believable characters. (THE BOOK BAG)

Book Description

A stunning, never before published, supernatural crime novel from the legendary David Gemmell, with a new introduction by Conn Iggulden.

I've loved David Gemmells novels for most of my life and when I have time to sit and simply read for enjoyment, it's often one of these that I pick up.
Rhyming Rings is a distinct departure from his typical fantasy works, but shares many traits nonetheless.
The giant Mr Sutcliffe and his quiet and unassuming strength. The Rek-like Jeremy, who starts his journey filled with self loathing, but discovers inner strength, courage and even redemption by the end of the story.
The story is tense and a gritty depiction of London in 1987. The parallels between the story and the authors early life are obvious, but easily missed, such is the ability of the author to draw you into the story.
As with all of his novels, not a word is wasted and he manages to convey so much with so little. The subject matter is grisly though and certainly much darker than his other work. That said, it is an excellent book.
Although I never met David Gemmell, missing out on a signing event due to helping a friend, I felt a real sense of loss at his passing. I'm eternally grateful to whoever found this story, not only for the quality read it provides, but also because for just a moment, it made me feel connected to the author again.

Many readers know I've been a fan of David's work for a number of years and whilst a lot of people remember key parts of thier life through music, I've always been one to remember them by books with David's forming a huge chunk of my own history.

So when he passed back in 2006 it felt tha tI'd had a huge part of my reading world pulled out from under me leaving me lost and bereft mourning characters I'd never gotten to know and stories that were lost yet to be told.

Upon learning of Stella had found an unpublished title that wouldn't to quote David himself "curdle milk" I was more than interested to see what would be presented. A new Fantasy, an epic historical release or perhaps even a new fictional title in much the same way that the fans Holy Grail novel "White Knight Black Swan" was. (Incidently being rereleased on the 21st September 2017 by Gollancz.)

What is presented within is a story that will be devoured appealing to crime readers alongside fans of his fantasy titles. The principle character is delightfully familiar to those who know David's work as well as those who've had a glimpse at the man himself and brings the magic that he was known for into a modern fiction setting. Its well written, the prose is sharp and all round the story is developed with the usual Gemmell magic that leaves you lost in time, wondering what happened to the world around you as the final page turned.

Its thought provoking, its a cracking experience and as a fan I really hope that there's other hidden gems out there. I can only congratulate the estate as well as the publishers for bringing this to the fore and allowing us fans another chance to experience the magic of a new novel. Finally, to sum up, its a cracking jaunt into the murky seedier world of a London wrapped up with a delightfully crafted story that has great prose and lulls, proving that the Gemmell magic is alive and well.
