Legend is one of those classic books in the fantasy genre that I’ve been hearing about for quite some time and one I’m thankful I finally got around to reading. Actually, I wish I would have read this book much sooner.

David Gemmell wrote the kind of book that I love to read. Many of the characters are larger than life but still very relatable. Characters both major and minor are well developed. The plot is engrossing, the description vivid, and the pace never slows down. Best of all, you could almost believe this story really took place in some ancient land long ago.

It’s rare that after only one book I would say that an author is one of my favorites but I actually felt that way halfway through the book. Needless to say, I’ll be picking up more books by Gemmell in the future, specifically moving onto the rest of the books in the Drenai Saga.
