Emotionally drained. Phefuckinomenal! I believe a nap is in order.

This book, as with the series as a whole, is just good, solid, entertaining fantasy. It is not very often you can have an eleven book series and hit solidly on every book, Gemmell does it with this series and this book fits right in.

Ultimo saluto

Il congedo di saga riesuma le vestigia degli eroi del passato, convocati per l'ultima volta affinché eroismo, seconde possibilità e la ricerca della dignità passino attraverso un riscatto individuale e collettivo.
Godibile e scritto con la solita, innata, passione, nonostante una trama davvero risicata che carbura troppo tardi, spesso rea di inciampare in sciocchezze tranquillamente evitabili - vedi l'armatura disseppellita da un terremoto o il riflesso del tempio sulla lama - ; an

This was not my first David Gemmell book - I already knew I loved this author for his vivid descriptions, intensely real characters and wonderfully action-packed and emotionally brilliant stories. However, when I read it I had not read the previous books about Druss the Legend or Skilgannon the Damned. At this point in time I have read ALL of them, and though I recommend them all, the Swords of Night and Day is still my favorite Gemmell book and probably one of my favorite books of all time.

3.5 rounding down.

This continues, and completes, Skulgannon's story line. I'm glad I read it but it felt overlong at times. I enjoyed seeing the stereotypes shattered.

7.5/10

The Swords of Night and Day is the second book featuring Skillgannon the Damned and the last one in the Drenai saga. In this book Gemmell takes us a thousand years after White Wolf , in a very different world filled with hybrid monsters and immortal humans, and in a story of love, friendship and sacrifice.

A thousand years have passed since Skilgannon died, a thousand years he was lost in the Void fighting monsters and demons; but now, he’s been given a second chance to try and find the re

This is one of the best books, period, that I've read in the last three years. I think it would be very helpful, however, to have read some of the earlier works in this series. That will make you really have a feel for the characters.

This was a typical Gemmell book (which is a good thing), and it was nice seeing several favorite characters one more time. That said, I thought the previous book was a more satisfying ending to the series.

“Never violate a woman, nor harm a child. Do not lie, cheat, or steal. These things are for lesser men. Protect the weak against the evil strong. And never allow thoughts of gain to lead you into the pursuit of evil. That was the iron code of Druss the Legend.” 2 likes
“We all of us carry the seed of evil in our hearts and souls,” she told him. “Even the purest, even the most holy. It is part of the human condition, born into us. We cannot root it out. All we can do—at best—is prevent it from germinating.” 1 likes
