I've read from cover to covre pretty fast. You need a little time to actually get into the story and the settings. But once you're sucked in, it gets to you!

Gemmel is in my opinion the best author of heroic fiction living or dead period. His best character is Druss the Legend. White Wolf has plenty of Druss and introduces a new heroic figure in the form of Skilgannon. Together they are an unbeatable team. If you are a David Gemmel fan this book is a must read. If you have never read Gemmel White Wolf is a great place to start. White Wolf has earned a special place on my bookshelf.

A Wolf Among Sheep May 11 2003
By Arthur W. Jordin - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
White Wolf is the tenth novel in the Drenai Tales series. It features Druss the Legend at a later point in his life, five years after the death of his wife Rowena and ten years before Dos Delnoch, in a quest tale involving his old friend Orastes and his daughter as well as another warrior seeking relief from his guilt and sorrow.
In the chaos following the death of the Emperor Gorben at Skeln Pass, civil war racked Ventria and spread to Tantria. The Tantrian king has attacked Datia and Shakusan Ironmask, leader of the king's guardsmen, has sent Arbeiters out among the people to stir up anger against agents of the enemy, foreigners and the churchmen.
In this novel, Skilgannon the Damned has left the Witch Queen of Naashan, his lover, and is living as Brother Lantern in a community of monks. The Arbeiters have led the townsfolk in torturing and hanging foreigners and burning down their houses. Now they are arousing the people against the churchmen. A crowd has badly beat old Brother Layban and Brothers Lantern and Braygan have come to obtain healing herbs and potions from the Apothecary. There an Arbeiter strikes Brother Braygan and attacks Brother Lantern and thereby seriously hurts himself.
Brother Lantern can see that the monks are very much at risk of attack by the townsfolk, but the Elder Brother will not flee, for the monks' duty is to the flock even if it costs their lives. Brother Lantern stands against the mob and cannot refrain from resisting after the Elder Brother is attacked and wounded. After a few assailants are killed or maimed, the townsfolk cease their assault of the monastery. Brother Lantern now knows that he cannot remain a monk, for he is not willing to die for "scum". The Elder Brother returns the Swords of Night and Day to him and asks only that Skilgannon escort Brother Braygan to Mellicane to take his vows from the Elders of the church.
On the way to Millicane, Skilgannon and Braygan find the boy Rabalyn, wounded and delirious, fleeing from murder accusations by a town councillor, and take him with them. Later, they encounter refugees running from the armies attacking Tantria and witness a calvary patrol attacking women and children among these refugees. Before Skilgannon can intervene, Druss kills all but one of the patrol and sends the survivor away with a warning. After an attack on the refugees by Joinings, great beasts created by magically combining man with animal, Druss and his friend, Garianne, join Skilgannon's company to escort the refugees to Mellicane.
Druss has been searching for Orastes and his daughter, Elanin. In Mellicane, he learns from his friend, Diagoras, a Drenai warrior, that Orastes' servant was found in the dungeons, but none know where Orastes has gone. He discovers, however, that Elanin has been taken by her mother with Shakusan Ironmask to a ruined fortress.
This novel is about love and loyalty, evil and remorse, and, above all, revenge. The plot is simple, but the characters are complex. It contains violence, yet even more compassion, and it involves lovers, but is not romantic. The author has produced another gripping tale that reflects the contradictions and mysteries of human nature.
Highly recommended for Gemmell fans and anyone else who enjoys tales of high tragedy and great loves.

Another Exciting Gemmell Novel April 14 2003
By Scott Masterton - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
David Gemmell's new novel 'White Wolf' is a great read. Although marketed as a Druss novel, Druss is a secondary character in this morality play. Skilgannon is the real star of this novel; a deadly young warrior with a twisted past. As in all of the David Gemmell novels, Skilgannon is a damaged and in many ways morally corrupt individual reminiscent of the early Clint Eastwood, 'Man with No Name' characters.
As is all of Gemmell's work, the writing is sharp and the dialogue clean and clear. Gemmell's real gift however, lies in his utterly human, 3-dimensional characters. Interestingly, the author explains (via his characters dialogue) how a warrior must think in black and white terms; wrong and a right; good and evil. Gemmell's characters are none of those things. They are all wonderfully filled with shades of gray, just like all of us.
'White Wolf' and all of it's new characters are a wonderful addition to the continuing Drenai saga. I for one would like to see more of Skilgannon. Although complete in and of itself, this novel begs to be followed with more stories of Skilgannon.

WOW.... May 30 2005
By book jock - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Honestly the best book I have read in the last four months.. Thats coming from and avg. of 6 books a month. Kudos to David Gemmell with this stuning novel of a warrior with a trubled past who has to face his undecided future and has to attempt the impossible to try to releive himself of some of his sins by bringing back one of the many who have suffered by his mear existence. The writing is fantastic with David Gemmell's fluid and visual battle writing skills and exiting turns at every chapter. Just a wonderful book......

When you want action, mayhem, and great characters, pick up Gemmell Feb. 16 2006
By Catfish - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
I read a lot in my job - mostly technical stuff, but it requires me to think hard and dig deeply. I write a lot, too. So when it is time to relax with a book, I don't feel particularly called upon to work hard. I typically don't select so-called Great Literature. I know, I know...I am sure there are people out there that can relax with Spinoza or Faulkner, but I am not one of them. I work hard during the day and darn it - I want blood and thunder! Mayhem! Great characters! The good guys beating the tar out of the bad guys! Gemmell delivers all of this and more in almost all of his books. I smile when I see a new Gemmell...because I know that his plots are good with intriguing twists, his characters are really wonderful, and his worlds believably drawn. This is the kind of stuff that I can really relax with. So get yourself a beverage, sit in a comfy chair, and let yourself join characters like Skilgannon, Druss, or Waylander and get ready to have a ball.

Heroic Fantasy ( THE BEST ) May 24 2003
By "strangwidge" - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Every time I read a David Gemmell novel I really become an extra character , he is that good . I have read avidly every offering and still eagerly anticipate Gemmells' next . His heroes are flawed , if old craggy Druss is new to you its' time to be acquainted , his return in White Wolf is wonderful . Read this , there is no better .
