Summary

For centuries the tribes of the Nadir have suffered under the despotic tyranny of their Gothir overlords. Disunited and distrustful of one another, the tribes await the coming of a Messianic warlord, who will unite them against the oppressors.

Into this swirling, chaotic landscape come three men who will change the fate of the continent: Talisman, the mysterious, enigmatic Nadir warrior, haunted by his past and filled with dreams of finding the Uniter; Sieben the Poet, searching for the mysteries of life and love; and Druss the Axeman, determined to find two mystic gems to heal a mortally wounded friend.

Together they will journey across a war-torn land and descend beyond the gates of Hell, where a long-dead king holds the key to a secret that will change the world.

The Legend of Deathwalker, this battle-charged tale of Druss among the Nadir, completes the circle begun with Legend and Druss the Legend.

Superb book, technical issue though

Sean Barrett as usual delivers a superb rendition of the always excellent Gemmell. So why three stars? Needed a proper listen through by the publishers. A couple of chapters loop back to the start half way through, which is a little frustrating, and a bit of a poor show. If this happened in the printed book it would have been picked up. Not sure why it’s been left like this for audio?

Great story, confusing glitches

Amazing narrator, fantastic story, but spoiled by several glitches in the editing.

There's even a glitch in the additional 'sneak peak' reading at the end.

Great listen spoilt by poor editing

It's a real shame that reputation of some sections spoils the flow of a good yarn. Not the fault of the author or narrator but the production. Hope the next one is better.

Just love the character development

Loved this piece of work- the last battle scene was just a bit too crazy but I have to say Druss and Sieben are a great duo. I always picture them like Bud Spencer and Terrence Hill!

Super performance

Gemmell tells a magical and enthralling story with vibrant characters, none better than Druss, the man who is the Drenai. Wasn't overawed by this book when I first read it but upon listening with Sean Barretts sublime and exquisite reading I realise I was wrong. Gemmell and Barrett together, truly magnificent.

A Man of Rock and Iron

I found the ending of this final book on Druss to be particularly sad. It tells of the time when Ulrich meets Druss for a final meal outside the gates of Dros Delnoch just before his death, only Druss does not recognise the warrior he befriended all those years ago when they battled together at the Shrine of Oshikai Demon Bane. The years have taken their toll on Ulrich, . Then, Ulrich was known as Talisman, a young warrior and his Nadir name had not been chosen. He crushed the eyes of Alchazzar to return life to the Nadir land. In doing this, his eyes were turned forever violet. Ulrich does not remind him of their time together. Just so sad. We also see Sieben, Druss’ lifelong friend die. It is the end of an era that will never see their like again.

I have marked this down as the editing was missed towards the end of this book which meant it became repetitive.

surprisingly I love the Dreanai series

I never thought I would enjoy basically books about warriors but the story and characters have me hooked the narrator is superb and I wont hesitate to read every book in the series. I started with Waylander and didn't think i would fall in love with any other heroe but I did. just live the old fashioned honour code and doing the right thing. It reminds me of my fathers generation where a man's word meant something and there seemed to be a code of honour which seems to be lacking in our modern day world.

Another tale of a legend

I enjoyed this of course but the first chronicles of Druss is the one you want!

Enjoyed Druss

However, a lot of this story was placed on the Nadir. To me I found them to be very unlikeable and was not rooting for them at any point.

Great book and actor. The recording has repeats

Great book, if your fare is a bittersweet, gritty fantasy. The recording has some repeats.
