The King Beyond the Gate (Drenai Saga #2) - David Gemmell7.18

Times had changed.

Once the mighty fortress had stood strong, defended by the mightiest of all Drenai heroes, Druss, the Legend.

But now a tyrannical, mad emperor had seized control of the fortress. And his twisted will was carried throughout the land by his creatures, the Joinings - abominations that were half-man, half-beast.

Descended from a long-ago political inter-marriage between enemies, Tenaka Khan was a half-breed himself. He was an outsider, hated by the Drenai for his Nadir blood, and despised by the Nadir for his Drenai ancestry. But he alone had a plan to destroy the emperor.
