Product Description


David Gemmell is several rungs above the good - right into the fabulous―Anne McCaffrey

From the Inside Flap

The armies of the Outlanders crushed the highlanders at the battle of Colden Moor-killing their finest warriors and breaking their freeborn spirit. The highlanders are now a conquered people, ruled by the brutal Baron Gottasson.
Prophecies speak of the coming of a new leader, a descendent of Ironhand, mightiest of the highland kings. A leader who will throw off the Outlander yoke. But only one highlander carries the blood of Ironhand: Sigarni, a wild and willful teenage girl who cares for nothing save her own concerns. Until a fateful encounter thrusts her onto a path of rebellion. Now, hunted by the baron's soldiers and stalked by an evil sorcerer, Sigarni will be forced to fulfill her destiny . . . or perish.

HASH(0x9c380dc8) out of 5 stars A lady of ice and steel... Aug. 3 2006
By Mason Sorgdrager - Published on
I consider this book special within the library of David Gemmell novels. One thing (rather obviously) that makes it special is the fact that the main character is a woman. This is not to say that David Gemmell does not have strong, female characters in his other novels. He does. And plenty of them. However, Sigarni IS Ironhand's Daughter, she is not just a character that other heroes meet as part of their travels.

Sigarni, like most great Gemmell characters, is a flawed character. Initially, she can appear arrogant and rather uncaring. It is hard to develop any sympathy for her (that comes later). Strangley, some of the male characters about her are more easy to sympathise with, particularly her brave, loyal dwarf friend.

It is not until something life-changing and horrific happens that one is completely swept into Sigarni's world. These early pages of the novel remind me a lot of the first third of the movie Braveheart, not only because the people are highlanders, but also the arrogance of the overlords and the apparently insurmountable odds stacked agaisnt our champion. But it does not end there, that is only the beginning. Sigarni also has to battle the prejudices of her own people, and the darkness in her own heart in order to achieve the destiny she finds herself thrust towards.

There are some usual Gemmell plot tools in the book, including gates to other worlds, dimensional time travel, near-immortal wise-men, demon conjuring evil sorcerors, etc., but none of these are the main focus of the book and they only add to the complexity and enjoyability of the main storyline.

I don't want to ruin the book for anyone else, so I will leave my descriptions there.

Read this especially if the female characters in Robert Jordan's Wheel of Time novels really, really irritate you. This will refresh you and give you an appreciation of truly strong, well-rounded female fantasy characters.

I found the hawk queen novels to be empowering. It can be a little hard to follow but that's not the story, its the layout. I couldn't put this book down. Gemmell uses portals in almost all his books, I honestly don't think this book is different from his others. I cried, laughed, and fell in love with these characters. In the end I felt I belonged to the clans in the book!!!
HASH(0x9c383114) out of 5 stars Impressed July 7 2015
By Rebecca - Published on
I picked this book up at a yard sale, forcing the "don't judge a book by its cover" moto. I just have a personal thing about books that look like they are quick published, and the author has like tons of books printed because they are not taking time in their story and just want to get something on the shelves. I know it really doesn't make sense but that it how I feel. But this book was actually really good.
The characters were very interesting and I liked that the heroine really didn't care what anyone else thought. She went through many emotional changes throughout the book, and it made her into a better leader by the end. The only thing I didn't like was that there were to many characters that you had to remember, and they all had unique and obscure names. So at times I did not remember which character was which.
But if you like adventure, battles, magic, Scotland, historical fiction, and strong female leads than pick up this book! I am giving it a four out of five stars!
HASH(0x9c3831f8) out of 5 stars I read this after it was recommended to me July 11 2015

I read this after it was recommended to me. It has a few parts in it that are written to express the horror of the events, so it can get pretty rough. The story is kind of a mystical version of Braveheart with a female lead. It isn't easy for me to relate with Sigarni in many ways, but the author helps me at least understand where she's coming from. This is a story I would recommend, with the disclaimer that some terrible things happen.

David Gemmell was one of the best storytellers ever. All his books are fast paced, easy to read, very suspenseful and they leave you with a strong desire to read more of his books and adventures. He paints his characters and worlds full of color and makes you feel part of his stories. I have reread all his books many times and they never fail to thrill me and make me want to read them yet again.
