RETURN OF THE DEATHWALKER

From the timeless, magical, and merciless Drenai realm--evoked so unforgettably in David Gemmell's international bestseller Legend--comes a new tale of power and passion, of a man born to kill, and destined for greatness . . .

He was called Druss. Captain of the ax. The Deathwalker. Though the blood of merciless butchers coursed through his veins and made him an outcast among men, Druss had finally found a fragile peace through his love for beautiful, mystical Rowena. In their small village on the edge of the Drenai land, the young married couple lived a simple life . . . until the day Druss returned from the forest to find everyone dead, massacred by slavers who had stolen the young women to sell for gold, Rowena among them.

Armed only with his family's deadly heirloom, a darkly powerful double-bladed ax called Snaga, Druss went after Rowena. His journey would carry him to strange kingdoms, from the highest thrones of power to the deepest dungeons of depravity. Along the way, he would win empires and nearly lose his mind, battle savage monsters and descend into terrifying lands of black magic and demons. Yet one thing was certain, Druss would have victory . . . or death.

"David Gemmell tells a tale of very real adventure, the stuff of true epic fantasy."
--R. A. Salvatore
New York Times bestselling author

About the Author:

David Gemmell was born in London, England, in the summer of 1948. Expelled from school at sixteen for organizing a gambling syndicate, he became a laborer by day, and at night his six-foot-four-inch, 230-pound frame allowed him to earn extra money as a bouncer working nightclubs in Soho.

Born with a silver tongue, Gemmell rarely needed to bounce customers, relying on his gift of gab to talk his way out of trouble. At eighteen this talent led to a job as a trainee journalist, and he eventually worked as a freelancer for the London Daily Mail, Daily Mirror, and Daily Express. His first novel, Legend, was published in 1984 and has remained in print ever since. He became a full-time writer in 1986.
