Product Description

Review

'Set aside an otherwise free afternoon before you read Waylander II, because once you start you will not want to stop' STARBURST 'David Gemmell manages to take a familiar, generic scenario and infuse it with meaning...it's a thoughtful genre fantasy, a bit chewier than most, and quite, quite tasty' LOCUS

DON'T MESS WITH THE BOSS!!!!!!!! Jan. 1 2015
By Greggorio! - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
This book makes an immediate contrast with it’s prequel, in that Waylander appears as a mortal enemy to the man whose life he saved at the beginning to book one. Yes, that’s right. The priest, Dardalion. Of course, with a Drenai novel (or any David Gemmell book for that matter!) absolutely NOTHING is what it seems so I will leave that particular conversational thread to unwind itself, and move on.

The book simply reeks atmosphere. It opens with an intriguing prologue where the reader is introduced to a character interestingly called “Angel” who is an old acquaintance of Waylander and moves on to the isolated mountaintop retreat that Dakeyras and his daughter call home. But not for much longer. With a 10,000 gold currency placed on his head, Dakeyras is fully able to see the wood for the trees, even though his daughter Muriel has not woken up to see fate staring her (or her father) in the face. By the start of chapter four, Angel has been employed by Waylander to train his daughter so that she can defend herself against potential assassins and Dakeyras has set himself a bundle of side quests including information gathering, friend (and enemy) collections, and of course, maximising the entertainment factor for the reader.

I am loving this book. The plot is more complex than book one and the antagonism between characters that used to be friends adds a huge amount of fun and interest to the reading experience. The world building is excellent and of course since this is book five, you would expect to have a certain degree of pre-existing civilisation already embedded in your consciousness. And it is.

David Gemmell is a wonder. The Drenai saga books are (pun intended) legendary and are destined to be regarded as all time classics. Pick them up now, read them, saviour them, and pass them on to your kids.

Hugely recommended from me and fully deserving of a five star ranking.

BFN Greggorio!

Love reading Davids books. Im sad to have finished this one but couldnt put it down. I have a couple of his others in hard copy from years ago, will have to re read and see what else he has done.
Awesome Gemmell as always!!! Feb. 11 2008

You must read Waylander's story in the Drenai series. He's the perfect non-hero hero! Reluctant but with morals. Nothing else to say but Awesome: Waylander, Waylander II: In The Realm of the Wolf, Waylander III: Hero in the Shadows.
