Summary

The Knights of the Gabala were legendary protectors of the Nine Duchies - until they disappeared through a demon-haunted gateway between worlds. Manannan, the Coward Knight, held back. Now he lives in torment.

Yet war is coming to the Duchies - and with it Manannan's chance for redemption. But to regain his honour and save his land, he will have to confront his deepest fear. He must ride through the gateway and seek out his lost companions in the unknown world beyond. And the secret he will learn there will tear his soul apart.

Superb

I read this book in my early twenties and twenty years on i thought I would give the audio book a go i wasn't disappointed in the slightest ,the narrator is excellent and brings this superb story of sword and socerry to life with heroes that have flaws and villains that are likeable it s Gemmell at his best . A stand alone novel so not part of any of his series, so if your new to the author i r recommend this as a start point . Brilliant .

I can't believe David Gemmell wrote this rubbish

Really bad.....Really really bad, you sure David Gemmell wrote this? He had to start somewhere I suppose.
Give this one a miss, save your credit

Excellent!

The narrator did justice to a great story. David Gemmel is one of my favorite authors and I thoroughly enjoyed the Audible version.

One of Gemmell’s earliest, one of the best

Gemmell would return many times to the themes and elements in Knights of Dark Renown. A child of power finding his destiny. A story teller turning villains into heroes. A simple man becoming a legend. Women to walk the mountains with. Gemmell would eventually polish and greatly refine the mythology of his shared multi-verse, but we would continue to hear the legends of the Knights (or possibly their alternate selves) through the Drenai saga. Worth reading both on its own merits and to give insight into Gemmell’s other work.

The reader does a good job overall, with only a few slips that don’t detract much from the experience.

Highly recommended.
