    One thought on “The Legend of Deathwalker”

    1. This was the last book in the Drenai Saga that I hadn’t read, so reading it was a very bittersweet experience. On the one hand, this one is just as good as all the other books in the series, and made me want to revisit Legend and some of the others. On the other hand, I knew that once I’d finished it, there wouldn’t be any more Drenai books left. So I took it slow for the first half, but naturally I finished it at a breathless late-night sprint a day or two later.I’ve been thinking a lot [...]

    2. Gemmell sabe manejar a la perfección el género. Sabe mezclar con las dosis suficientes tanto realismo y crudeza como magia y fantasía. Un genio que daría paso al futuro Grimdark.

    3. A typically excellent fantasy novel by David Gemmell, something of a prequel of sorts to his first book, LEGEND. In fact, it has a couple of book-end chapters that directly link it to the events of that story, but the majority of the tale is set years previously.This is one of the best Drenai novels. The plot is familiar, taking on yet another siege scenario, but the characters are among the most interesting yet and Gemmell makes full use of the opportunity to explore the various characters caug [...]

    4. Combattere per il nemico Importante tassello del mosaico che si incastra nelle cronache di Druss, seppur narrato - in medias res - durante il celeberrimo assedio di Dros Delnoch.La narrazione epica sposa l'approccio romantico che scorre sotterraneo ai rapporti che intercorrono fra gli innumerevoli personaggi coinvolti nel dramma.Lo scontro tra culture livella la desueta ripartizione fra ciò che è giusto o sbagliato: si combatte per sopravvivere, per vendetta o al fine di dominare altri, ma l'i [...]

    5. 8/10In ‘The Legend of Deathwalker’ Druss’s legendary cycle of adventures comes to an end as Gemmell takes us, once again, to the past, in a story of how Druss actually earns the title of the Deathwalker and also of how fate sends him at the siege of Dros Delnoch.The story starts 30 years before Legend, but after the main events of the First Chronicles; with Druss still trying to find himself in the world, along with Sieben, his most loyal friend and poet master.But when they get involved i [...]

    6. I do have a passion of David Gemmell books. He is simple in writing, concise in his battles, a great story teller and most of all , very human when creating his characters.The Legend of Deathwalker brings us the story of Druss and the reason why he had the name of Deathwalker between the Nadir. It also brings the Nadir rising into the powerful army we have seen in the "Legend".With a incredible simplicity, David Gemmell places Druss as a story teller to a young warrior about times long passed, w [...]

    7. David Gemmell could have written about Druss (and Sieben) doing groceries and baking cakes and I would have enjoyed it. David Gemmell's style is one that I can't get tired of, even though I have always believed that he wrote the same book over and over again. "The Legend of the Deathwalker" is not as good as the Rigante series or the first two about Troy, but it still has all the ingredients of the his novels (a little bit of talk about philosophy, endings a little bit abrupt, characters that ar [...]

    8. A podcast review of this book you say!? Why the hell not!?The Nadir are the Kilngons of the Drenai Saga.Hello!Druss is back at it again in this mid-middle-quel to other books within this series. Will he prevail against all odds and defeat the stuff and things!? Probably I discuss:The Legend of Deathwalker by David Gemmelywood.podbean/2014/01/22

    9. The best Gemmell - book (yet. I still have a few ones left to read)!So much magic and adventure! I really enjoyed it!

    10. This is a fun book, which is an excellent prelude to 'Legend'. Gammell seems to have a love for sieges, although he has this tendency to being vary anti-climatical in the end.

    11. We once again go on an adventure with Druss the Legend, to find out how he got the name Deathwalker, among the Nadir. David Gemmel’s writing style as always is amazing. He was especially great at writing characters though. Although his heroes and their love interests always seem to have repetitive characteristics but I guess it follows that Heroes will have similar traits that make them heroes, and that the women they love would also share similar traits. His heroes aren’t identical though, [...]

    12. I liked this book although it was hard to follow as it is the 7th in a series that I have read no other books.It took me awhile to get all the characters figured out and all the different peoples. The story starts in a fight,Druss the legend is awaiting the Nadir to attack yet again. He is an older warrior, of around 50 or 60 and he has a young man next to him. As it turns out Dros is telling the young man his story of how he got his name "Deathwalker". He had been going to the games but had got [...]

    13. 7th book in the Drenai Series and third (and last one) book featuring Druss as main hero. Much better than its predecessor (The First Chronicles of Druss the Legend), it brings Druss' saga to a proper and satisfying end, answering some pending questions, recalling some memorable moments and offering some new bloody Snaga action. Nothing more but also nothing less than a Gemmell fan could ask from a Druss' novel; unimaginable to miss if you've already read Legend. Farewell Druss, it was damn fun [...]

    14. Another good book from Gemmell. I liked the changes seen in his writing as he continues the Drenai Saga. Normally all his earlier books were pure recycle of the first book- Legend. What i liked here is him getting into Nadir history and a clear explanation on what happened before.What i didn't like was the larger then life battles in void. It makes all other battles previously fought in Drenai Saga insignificant.The Ending was awesome - people will understand the significance only if they have r [...]

    15. The Legend of Deathwalker (Drenai Saga, #7) tells the story of how Druss gets his Nadir name of Deathwalker. It also tells of how Ulrech is created - which explains Druss's funeral in the very first Drenai Saga novel - and how Sieben finally found his ability to love which, it should be noted, is different than his ability to be a lover which we already knew him capable of.Missing is Rowena.

    16. Druss est à Dros Delnoch et se tient face aux nadirs. Cette histoire est une mise en abîme. En effet, il en profite entre deux assauts pour raconter à un jeune fermier du nom de Pellin, un pan de son histoire. Il a connu un autre gars, un autre Pellin il y a trente ans de celaOn retrouve avec plaisir Druss la Légende et le livre apporte des réponses à beaucoup de questions qui pouvaient encore se poser au sujet de cette saga.

    17. Not quite what I was expecting, I had imagined more life-defining battles that Druss had been involved in to gain his legendary status. Nevertheless, it's was still a thoroughly enjoyable read and I'm becoming a huge fan of David Gemmell's work.

    18. This is another Druss the Legend novel. The story revolves mostly around Druss telling an anecdote to a young soldier during the events that happen in Legend. Focused mostly on Druss's time with the Nadir, it follows the main pattern of many of the other books in the Drenai Saga.

    19. Not quite what I was expecting, I had imagined more life-defining battles that Druss had been involved in to gain his legendary status. Nevertheless, it's was still a thoroughly enjoyable read and I'm becoming a huge fan of David Gemmell's work.

    20. Another fine bookI think Gemmell was really coming into too his stride as a writer with this book. Legend is and all ways will be my favorite but it is a little rough. I think this and his many other books show how he just got better over time.

    21. My oh my!First thing first, I have to state that I've read David Gemmell's Troy trilogy, Legend and all the books in the Drenai saga that were before this one from a chronological point of view.I wish now I haven't rated some of them as high as I did, only because this one is a rare gem.The Legend of Deathwalker resembles the third one in the Waylander trilogy in the fact that even though the main character is Druss and the actions evolves around him, the reader's attention will most likely go t [...]

    22. Ancora una volta Gemmell riesce a raccontare con la sua epica travolgente un'altro tassello della storia dei Drenai, concentrata questa volta sulla nascita del grande Unificatore del popolo Nadir, Ulric.Mi è piaciuta la maggiore coralità delle voci e delle azioni dei personaggi,dove Druss è ancora capofila, con al fianco però Talismano, un uomo a cui viene assegnato il compito più importante dal meschino quanto potente sciamano Nostra Khan. Ma anche il Maestro Sieben è nuovamente sugli scu [...]

    23. Наконец-то Геммел научился писать хорошие книги! Эта книга намного интереснее "Легенды" и "Друсса-легенды". Если первая - это одна только осада замка, а вторая - вымученное путешествие, которое намёками и так было уже запланировано в ранее написанной книге, эту пришлось всуну [...]

    24. Druss is a real hero. He fights the worthy causes, for love, honour and righteousness. Druss is a man who sees right and wrong as black and white, and although he should be a simple man, his story which has spanned several novels, is a complex one. Gemmell cleverly devises a story which fits in-between existing tales, without warping their exiting plot-lines. This is the story of how the Nadir came to call him 'Deathwalker'. The story takes some time to manoeuvre the key players in to a position [...]

    25. The perfect compliment to the first novel in the Drenai series. Druss indirectly aides the birth of the uniter of the Nadir and this tale foreshadows the epic clash at Dros Delnoch. In classic Gemmell style, the novel contains a siege and storming of a fortress where the defenders are against seemingly insurmountable odds. Pretty sure that happens in almost all novels in the Drenai series, but it never gets old. Looking forward to remainder of the Drenai books but very interested to see how it g [...]

    26. A bland addition.Nothing much to say about this book, it isn't awful but it is worthless.The plot is paint-by-numbers Gemmell, nothing new or interesting, it feels like the author could have written this in his sleep.Druss is the same as always, likeable, but there is no real purpose to what he is doing and a heavy reliance on prophecies referencing the other books.The ending is predictable and forgettable.Readable but only just.

    27. Great book!I’ve read this book four or five times, and it never gets old. David Gemmel was an incredible writer, I highly recommend the Lord of the Silver Bow series as well.
