Summary

The first audiobook of Skilgannon the Damned, from the acclaimed author of Legend.

Skilgannon the Damned had vanished from the pages of history. Following the terrible triumph at Perapolis, the General had taken the legendary Swords of Night and Day and ridden from the lands of Naashan. No one knew where he had gone, and the assassins sent by the Witch Queen could find no trace of his passing.

Three years later, as a mob intent on murder gathers outside a distant monastery, they are faced by a single unarmed priest. In a few terrifying seconds their world is changed forever, and word spreads across the lands of the East. Skilgannon is back. Now he must travel across a perilous, demon-haunted realm seeking a mysterious temple and the ageless goddess who rules it. With assassins on his trail and an army of murderous foes ahead, the Damned sets off on a quest to bring the dead to life. But he does not travel alone. The man beside him is Druss the Legend.

In a world torn by war, White Wolf is a tale of love, betrayal and treachery, which examines the nature of heroism and friendship and the narrow lines that divide good from evil, redemption from damnation.

A reminder of why David Gemmell is great.

Yet again we become immersed in the world of Heroes and Legends. DG sorely missed.

Terrible narrator - so boring

This narrator is pretty impossible to listen to. even having him on for 2 minute out a skin on my coffee. Impossible to even get to the story Sean Barrett is an awful experience to listen to.

Superb

Loved it. Read the book when I was young and still enjoyed it as much now as I did then. Such a pleasure to be able to listen to this now, with Sean Barratts' narration doing full justice to Gemmell in all his Drenai works. On the the Swords of night and day next, can't wait!

Fantasy at its finest.

Sean Barrett does an amazing job of bringing such iconic characters to life. Skilgannon, Druss, Jiana, Diagoras, all superbly performed.

The book itself is one of Gemmell's best. Compelling, creative and almost philosophical at points. Less world building than Tolkien but grasps the greater complexity of the human condition. A must read for any true fantasy lover.

It's Gemmell, does what it says on the tin!

Great Gemmellian fare, Druss, and the introduction of Skilgannon. Monsters, battles, heroics, evil shamen. Fantastic fantasy frolics.

A Fine Warrior Priest

“We are what we are my son and wolves is what we are”

And that is exactly what Skilgannon is.

Narration, as has always been with this series, brilliant.

Better than the others

I personally think this book to be the best so far from the Drenai Series. Sean Bartlett is an excellent narrator and brings David Gemmell characters to life. Defiantly worth the credit

A truly wonderful combination!

Gemmel and Barrett are a wonderful combination! I've read Gemmel for the last 30 years so I was surprised Audible didn't have his work when I first joined. When the Audible editions came out, I was thrilled! Sean Barrett does a WONDERFUL job!! Five stars and two thumbs up!!
