'Gemmell's great reading the action never lets up. He's several rungs above the good rigt into the fabulous! -- ANNE McCAFFREY

From the Back Cover

"David Gemmell tells a tale of very real adventure, the stuff of true epic fantasy."
New York Times bestselling author

"Gemmell's great reading; the action never lets up; he's several rungs above the good--right into the fabulous!"

"I am truly amazed at David Gemmell's ability to focus his writer's eye. His images are crisp and complete, a history lesson woven within the detailed tapestry of the highest adventure. Gemmell's characters are no less complete, real men and women with qualities good and bad, placed in trying times and rising to heroism or falling victim to their own weaknesses."
New York Times bestselling author
of The Demon Apostle --This text refers to the Mass Market Paperback edition.

5.0 out of 5 stars This book was the work of a master artisan Aug. 23 2002
Daivd Gemmell has done what so very few authors can do. He has created a character, Druss, who is so much more than any man can be and is precisely what every man wants to be. It is very easy to read and the story pulls you into the world he has ceated and you feel as if you are there, along with Druss, creating his legends. Your imagination explodes with vivid scenes as Gemmell describes so simply, yet in just enough detail, that your imagination paints the most wonderful world and characters. The reason that I particularily like this book is for the simple little pieces of wisdom that Gemmell includes and I will leave you with one..."Foolish regret weighs more than iron. Every man makes mistakes; thats how he learns. Only the weakling talks of life's unfairness, or claims he is jinxed by bad luck. The strong man shrugs his shoulders and walks on." Great book, Great read, highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great reading July 12 2001
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Druss the Legend was a great read from start to finish. Anyone who is a fan of the first book in the series, Legend, should check this book out. Learn how Druss became such an awesome warrior and the secrets behind the dark weapon Snaga. Grab a goblet of Ventran Red, a block of cheese, put the wife and kids to bed and set sail on a fantastic adventure with Druss the Legend.

5.0 out of 5 stars Pure Fantasy Genius Jan. 2 2001
Format:Mass Market Paperback
WOW, thats the first thing that came to my mind after reading this book. I was truly upset when it was over. Mr.David Gemmell is the best fantasy writer hands down. I have read all of Mr.Gemmell's novels, and I have to put this one as one of my faves. Druss the Legend is problaby his greatest character, and this novel will not disappoint. Reading it was a emotional rollercoaster for me, sadness, anger, love, happiness, its makes the reader fell it all. You totally get immersed in the fantasy universe and everything about it.The adventure is truly unlike any other one i've ever read.I felt like I was part of the story, part of Druss.If fantasy is your thing you will not want to miss this novel. This novel main focus is Druss early life and how he became the hero in the other two books.The characters involved in this one are well descriped and easily loved. A great read

4.0 out of 5 stars If you simply must know more. Aug. 18 2000
By Sailoil
Format:Mass Market Paperback
If you have not read "Legend" stop now and read it first. After you read Legend you will want to know more about Druss (believe me you will). Then you read this book.
As a follow up to Legend it is a good book, but it annoyed me a bit that he carved out the Deathwalker legend into another novel. That's why he lost a star.
