After 20 years, Jon Shannow, the legendary Jerusalem Man, returns for a deadly showdown with the Bloodstone. The vicious Jerusalem Riders, and the apostle Saul unwittingly help this monstrous beast that feeds on souls. Then Shannow finds out it was in fact him who????
I highly recommend this book. Gemmell has outdone himself in the world of twists and turns. Nobody throws you like Gemmell, so go and get this book.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
David Gemmel create in Jon Shannow a character many would wish to become yet fall short. Because he is not a man who tries to become a legend rather someone who searches, like the antithesis of a hero in John Campbell's "Hero With a Thousand Faces" Shannow never sought glory, yet he has found that spark in every human being that makes him a hero. He realized at an early age that something is more important than himself. In his deeds he became something more than human, yet he is more human than many. You can flower the book and the character with alliterations and adjectives but the main core of Shannow is that of a haunted man yet duty bound to fulfill all that he will ever be no matter what the circumstance.
One cannot read the fifth book in the bloodstone novels and not have some form of reaction. For many will be wondered by the vivid characters Gemmel writes to the detailed battle sequences he describes. Yet there is more to this book than great writing, the struggles are real, we face them every day. We all see a bit of ourselves in the Jerusalem man from the desire for peace to his knowledge and ability to survive no matter the tribulation. He will inspire you and he will force you to question your soul.
Gemmel is truly a great story teller who has the ability to tell vivid worlds in just a few worlds. I have read many of his works this was my favorite, the Jerusalem Man my favorite. This story both saddened me and enlightened me.

A typical Gemmell book. It will keep you gripped right up to the twist at the end. So far he hasn't written a dud.
