A great end to a great man. The key to Gemmell's most iconic character is that he is unable to forgive himself. None of his great successes can ever make him feel better about his failures. His losses lead him to be empty inside. I always felt sure that Waylander was doomed to an eternity of dwelling on his mistakes. As Gemmell tells his final chapter I was stunned that such a fitting end was possible for such a conflicted man.

You should read this book. But in order to appreciate it, you will have to read Waylander and In The Realm of the Wolf. If you do, I think you will appreciate how perfect a conclusion this is.
