Publisher's Summary

The Drenai King is dead - murdered by a ruthless assassin. Enemy troops swarm into Drenai lands. Their orders are simple - kill every man, woman and child. But there is hope.

Stalked by men who act like beasts and beasts that walk like men, the warrior Waylander must journey into the shadow-haunted lands of the Nadir to find the legendary Armour of Bronze. With this he can turn the tide. But can he be trusted? For he is Waylander the Slayer. The traitor who killed the King...

    "Another Helping of Gorgeous Gemmell"

    I have pretty much gorged on three of these in the short time since Audible made them available. I think I've pretty much said all I can about them in general in my reviews of Legend and The King Beyond the Gate. In the 80s they were pure gold and even if fantasy has gained a level of sophistication since then they are still wonderful tales. Yes they have certain similarities but I think this is possibly the best of them. It's very direct and having read the above two it was fascinating to fill in some of the legends like the origin of The Thirty and how the legendary fortress of Dros Delnoch came about.

    Most of all though they are just great fun. Waylander is an excellent character and there is a lot of clever action. Sean Barrett was born to read fantasy novels and he works hand in glove with Gemmell's text. In addition the afterwords written by David himself are fascinating little insights to the writing process. In this case it all sounds decidedly naive but for those of us that have grown up holding this author in real affection it's also a nice little window into the life that produced these great stories. And I might say naive but if it was then it was gloriously naive as the resulting tale of Waylander ably demonstrates . . .

    "amazing. It's all I need to say."

    it would seem i need to say more or it won't let me say anything. Well worth buying and will be a book I'll listen to a lot. I have read all of his work and now am really happy I can listen to them at work or when walking the dog or even just sitting. It's sad that he died to soon and we will never get a new work from an author I love above all others.

    "A great audio adventure"

    I have read about 10 of David Gemmell's books and enjoyed all of them immensely. But this was my first audio Gemmell book, and I wasn't sure what the experience would be like. Luckily, Sean Barrett's audio rendering was superb. With my eyes closed and listening to Barrett's different tones and inflections of the various characters' voices, Gemmell's fantasy novel was brought to life. I have already purchased two more audio books by David Gemmell.

    "Awesome!!"

    First Gemmell book I ever read, hooked me for life. This audio version really brings Waylander to life. I'm getting ALL of the audio books of David Gemmell, his books are top notch.

    "Just me??"
    What would have made Waylander better?

    I had a hard time following this story.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    I didn't care for the narration of this book. Seems flat. I had to keep turning up the volume as if his speech was getting softer
