Book Review: Hero in the Shadows (The Drenai Saga #5, Waylander #3) – David Gemmell

Rating: 5/5 Stars

Genre: Fantasy, Adventure

Review:

Hero In The Shadows is the finale of the Waylander trilogy. I started this book with a bittersweet pang. Waylander’s my favorite character from the David Gemmell books and I didn’t want his story to end.

Book Review: In the Realm of the Wolf (The Drenai Saga #4, Waylander #2) – David Gemmell

Rating: 5/5 Stars

Genre: Fantasy, Adventure

Review:

In The Realm of The Wolf is the second book in the Waylander Trilogy. In the first book, we saw how Waylander was saved. He left to live his life with Danyal and the two little girls. I wondered what he would be like, as a husband and a father. He was prepared to live his life in peace but could he learn to let go of his bloody past?

Book Review: Morningstar – David Gemmell

Rating: 5/5 Stars

Genre: Fantasy, Adventure

Review:

Well, this was different. This second book in the chronological list of the Drenai series was told from the point of view of a bard, Owen Odell, rather than from the omniscient POV I’d become used to from David Gemmell. I have to admit I was curious what the story would be like. Continue reading “Book Review: Morningstar – David Gemmell”

Book Review: Knights of Dark Renown – David Gemmell

Rating: 5/5 Stars

Genre: Fantasy, Adventure

Review:

A long time ago, I read David Gemmell’s Legend, The King Beyond The Gate and Quest For Lost Heroes from the Drenai series. It was my first foray into Fantasy Adventure, way before I read Lord of the Rings and other books in that genre. I have to say, I loved it. The King Beyond The Gate was my first introduction to bigger than life heroes. Continue reading “Book Review: Knights of Dark Renown – David Gemmell”
