La leyenda del Mensajero de la Muerte...
en territorio nadir.
Durante siglos, las tribus de los nadir, débiles y enfrentadas entre sí, han sufrido el yugo de los gothir, pero en torno a sus hogueras pervive la promesa de que llegará un guerrero que las unirá bajo su mando. Ahora, tres hombres y una mujer se adentran en el dominio de los na ...more

If you intend to read the entire series, my recommendation would be to read them in Drenai-calendar chronological order though - starting with Waylander. You can find the order here (goodreads numbers them in the order they were written):

This is one of the best Drenai novels. The plot is familiar, taking on yet another siege scenario, but the characters are among the most interesting yet and Gemmell makes full use of the opportunity to explore the various characters caug ...more
The Legend of Deathwalker brings us the story of Druss and the reason why he had the name of Deathwalker between the Nadir. It also brings the Nadir rising into the powerful army we have seen in the "Legend".
With a incredible simplicity, David Gemmell places Druss as a story teller to a young warrior about times long passed, w ...more
Importante tassello del mosaico che si incastra nelle cronache di Druss, seppur narrato - in medias res - durante il celeberrimo assedio di Dros Delnoch.
La narrazione epica sposa l'approccio romantico che scorre sotterraneo ai rapporti che intercorrono fra gli innumerevoli personaggi coinvolti nel dramma.
Lo scontro tra culture livella la desueta ripartizione fra ciò che è giusto o sbagliato: si combatte per sopravvivere, per vendetta o al fine di dominare altri, ma l'in ...more
In ‘The Legend of Deathwalker’ Druss’s legendary cycle of adventures comes to an end as Gemmell takes us, once again, to the past, in a story of how Druss actually earns the title of the Deathwalker and also of how fate sends him at the siege of Dros Delnoch.
The story starts 30 years before Legend , but after the main events of the First Chronicles ; with Druss still trying to find himself in the world, along with Sieben, his most loyal friend and poet master.
But when they get involved int ...more
The Nadir are the Kilngons of the Drenai Saga.
Druss is back at it again in this mid-middle-quel to other books within this series. Will he prevail against all odds and defeat the stuff and things!? Probably... I discuss:
The Legend of Deathwalker by David Gemmel.
The story starts in a fight,Druss the legend is awaiting the Nadir to attack yet again. He is an older warrior, of around 50 or 60 and he has a young man next to him. As it turns out Dros is telling the young man his story of how he got his name "Deathwalker". He had been going to the games but had got ...more
What i liked here is him getting into Nadir history and a clear explanation on what happened before.
What i didn't like was the larger then life battles in void. It makes all other battles previously fought in Drenai Saga insignificant.
The Ending was awesome - people will understand the significance only if they have r ...more
Missing is Rowena.
On retrouve avec plaisir Druss la Légende et le livre apporte des réponses à beaucoup de questions qui pouvaient encore se poser au sujet de cette saga.
I think Gemmell was really coming into too his stride as a writer with this book. Legend is and all ways will be my favorite but it is a little rough. I think this and his many other books show how he just got better over time.
First thing first, I have to state that I've read David Gemmell's Troy trilogy, Legend and all the books in the Drenai saga that were before this one from a chronological point of view.
I wish now I haven't rated some of them as high as I did, only because this one is a rare gem.
The Legend of Deathwalker resembles the third one in the Waylander trilogy in the fact that even though the main character is Druss and the actions evolves around him, the reader's attention will most likely go t ...more
Mi è piaciuta la maggiore coralità delle voci e delle azioni dei personaggi,dove Druss è ancora capofila, con al fianco però Talismano, un uomo a cui viene assegnato il compito più importante dal meschino quanto potente sciamano Nostra Khan. Ma anche il Maestro Sieben è nuovamente sugli scudi, e ...more
Through a series of misadventures, Druss and Sieben find themselves taking part in a siege while a Nadir tribesman is searching for something to help his people unite under one banner. This is similar in theme to Quest For Lost Heroes - a quest that starts off as one thing then turns into something else that appears to be trivial - but much more uplifting.
Something that I've noticed in these more recent books is how Mr Gemmell has changed the way he writes about friendship. In his early books h...more
Druss isn't really all that special. What makes Legend good isn't Druss. It is a synergy between all of the elements. Without the synergy, Druss is just a character.
