Summary

The Drenai fortress of Dros Delnoch has fallen, and blood-hungry Nadir hordes sweep across the land, bringing desolation and despair. But with the Nadir triumphant, slavers seize a young girl in the tiny realm of Gothir, and a peasant boy steps off on a quest that will shake the world.

To rescue her, Kiall must cross the savage steppes and journey through the Halls of Hell, facing ferocious beasts, deadly warriors and demons of the dark.

But the boy is not alone. With him are the legendary heroes of Bel-Azar: Chareos the Blademaster, Beltzer the Axeman and the bowmen Finn and Maggrig.

And one among them hides a secret that could free the world of Nadir domination. For he is the Nadir Bane, the hope of the Drennai.

He is the Earl of Bronze.

David Gemmell is a gem of a writer

Sean Barrett narrates very well and helps to give Gemmell's books justice. I have listen to all 4 Drenai books so far and in order and will look forward to listen to the 5th. All are super books, listen to them in order. I suffer from dyslexia and find it hard to read books. Thanks to Audible for letting me discover this author you will not be disappointed!.

The Ghosts-yet-to-be ride again

Classic , Gemmell. The highest praise you can give in this genre. Performance is good and allows the story to unfold in centre stage right to the end .... some author's write well but struggle to give a satisfying ending; David Gemmell always delivers at the denouement and this is another example. A great joy to finally have these magical books available on Audible.

I love this book and is in my top 5.

I can't get enough of his work. I have read this and all of his books over and over again, and getting to listen to them at work or when doing diy or just when chilling is such a pleasure.
it is well read and I feel a little sad that I finished it in less than a day but I just couldn't turn it off.
Well I'm off to start another of his book now.
I hope you all enjoy this book as much as I did.

Another in a classic series.

Loved this performance and the characters therein. Gemmell uses each novel to set up events in the next but not in a direct, easy to predict fashion.
Well worth the listen.

Ok

This is not as good as other David Gemmell's other books like Legend and King Beyond the Gate and Waylander in my opinion.
