Fantasy. Fiction. Science Fiction. Thriller. HTML:??David Gemmell tells a tale of very real adventure, the stuff of true epic fantasy.???R. A. Salvatore

Druss, Captain of the Ax, is the stuff of legends. Tales of his battles are told throughout the land, and the stories expand with each telling. But Druss himself grows older, until finally, the warrior turns his back on glory and retreats to his mountain lair. There he awaits his old enemy: death. 

But far below, the barbarian Nadir hordes are on the march. All that stands between them and the Drenai people is a mighty six-walled fortress, Dros Delnoch??a great citadel that seems destined to fall. If it does, the Nadir will sweep inexorably across the land, killing all who oppose them.

Reluctantly Druss agrees to come down from his mountaintop to lead this last, hopeless fight. Lost causes mean nothing to him??he has fought in such battles a thousand times in a thousand lands. And he is a hero to i

    Vengeance af Fabrice Colin (corporate_clone)
    corporate_clone: Considérée comme une oeuvre mineure de Colin, Vengeance est pourtant un roman remarquable pour amateurs d'heroic fantasy brutale et masculine. Un très bon choix pour les fans de l'univers de Drenai.

I kept hearing how good and seminal this book was, but also kept putting it aside in my Tbr list because i feared it would feel dated. And it's true. It is a great book and it does feel really dated. ( )

Deathwalker/Druss is an undefeated fighting legend, retired for many years when his services are needed by the Earl to repell Urick and his mighty army. The book starts slowly with Rek saving the Earl's estranged daughter, but they develop as strong characters, able like Druss to bring out the best in men. Make no mistake,this is a book about war and justice. I also liked the fantasy element, with the Thirty and their battle with Urick's shaman. ( )

Billed as "heroic fantasy" this book lives up to its name.
I'm still not convinced by the fantasy genre - it always seems to be gallant knights of the middle ages with a dash of ghouls and dragons. But this book nails it - it is a great yarn, well told, and the medieval siege fighting and the supernatural elements are just props in the background of that story.
One jarring note - the casual sexism of the era (published in 1984) allows the fiercely independent Earl's daughter to disappear into the background as soon as she is married, while the husband immediately takes on the role of the Earl, via the marriage, when the father-in-law conveniently dies; and he is able to knock her to the ground in a minor disagreement and feels no compulsion to apologise - but she probably deserved it!! ( )

One of my favourite David Gemmell books and also the first one that I ever read!

Druss is an endearing character his simple yet iron outlook on life is simply charming.

As usual with Gemmell the writing is very well done and he sucks you into the whole world that he has created. ( )

I'd probably give this 4* on a different day but there were certain aspects of the writing that I didn't enjoy; I guess I'm too used to more modern books. The ending felt a bit forced but understanding how it was written this makes sense. I can see why it was so influential in its time. ( )

Der Drenai-Herold wartete nervös vor den großen Türen des Thronsaales, flankiert von zwei Nadir-Wächtern, die geradeaus starrten, die schrägstehenden Augen fest auf den Bronzeadler gerichtet, mit dem das dunkle Holz verziert war.
