The First Chronicles of Druss the Legend (Drenai Saga #6) - David Gemmell8.66


From the timeless, magical, and merciless Drenai realm - evoked so unforgettably in David Gemmell's international bestseller Legend - comes a new tale of power and passion, of a man born to kill, and destined for greatness...

He was called Druss. Captain of the ax. The Deathwalker. Though the blood of merciless butchers coursed through his veins and made him an outcast among men, Druss had finally found a fragile peace through his love for beautiful, mystical Rowena. In their small village on the edge of the Drenai land, the young married couple lived a simple life... until the day Druss returned from the forest to find everyone dead, massacred by slavers who had stolen the young women to sell for gold, Rowena among them.

Armed only with his family's deadly heirloom, a darkly powerful double-bladed ax called Snaga, Druss went after Rowena. His journey would carry him to strange kingdoms, from the highest thrones of power to the deepest dungeons of depravity. Along the way, he would win empires and nearly lose his mind, battle savage monsters and descend into terrifying lands of black magic and demons. Yet one thing was certain, Druss would have victory... or death.
