    corporate_clone: Considérée comme une oeuvre mineure de Colin, Vengeance est pourtant un roman remarquable pour amateurs d'heroic fantasy brutale et masculine. Un très bon choix pour les fans de l'univers de Drenai.

Deathwalker/Druss is an undefeated fighting legend, retired for many years when his services are needed by the Earl to repell Urick and his mighty army. The book starts slowly with Rek saving the Earl's estranged daughter, but they develop as strong characters, able like Druss to bring out the best in men. Make no mistake,this is a book about war and justice. I also liked the fantasy element, with the Thirty and their battle with Urick's shaman. ( )

Billed as "heroic fantasy" this book lives up to its name.
I'm still not convinced by the fantasy genre - it always seems to be gallant knights of the middle ages with a dash of ghouls and dragons. But this book nails it - it is a great yarn, well told, and the medieval siege fighting and the supernatural elements are just props in the background of that story.
One jarring note - the casual sexism of the era (published in 1984) allows the fiercely independent Earl's daughter to disappear into the background as soon as she is married, while the husband immediately takes on the role of the Earl, via the marriage, when the father-in-law conveniently dies; and he is able to knock her to the ground in a minor disagreement and feels no compulsion to apologise - but she probably deserved it!!

One of my favourite David Gemmell books and also the first one that I ever read!

Druss is an endearing character his simple yet iron outlook on life is simply charming.

As usual with Gemmell the writing is very well done and he sucks you into the whole world that he has created. ( )

I'd probably give this 4* on a different day but there were certain aspects of the writing that I didn't enjoy; I guess I'm too used to more modern books. The ending felt a bit forced but understanding how it was written this makes sense. I can see why it was so influential in its time. ( )

Remarkable book with an excellent narrator.

Though I knew the author’s name, this audiobook was my first experience of his writing. In the early stages I felt a bit at a loss, as though I had stepped into the middle of a series with a certain amount of background knowledge assumed. It might have helped had I understood that the whole focus of the story was driving towards a mighty siege. Then again, I might not have picked the book in the first place, as I tend to skip over books that appear to be mostly battle oriented.

Legend is about far more than a siege. It is about people; about how their actions and reactions affect others and influence the future, sometimes far into the future; about how the most unexpected people can reach heights no-one thought them capable of.

The narration is outstanding, Sean Barrett giving each character his or her own voice and personality.

I did have some problems keeping track of the great number of characters. I think if I had been reading, rather than listening, I would have flipped back a number of times to read again the earlier references to a particular person. Orrin, for example, comes to the fore during a particular episode and becomes increasingly prominent in the story, yet I cannot recall what he was like when he was introduced, though it is clear that he developed considerably through the course of the novel. A crib sheet would have helped. ( )

Der Drenai-Herold wartete nervös vor den großen Türen des Thronsaales, flankiert von zwei Nadir-Wächtern, die geradeaus starrten, die schrägstehenden Augen fest auf den Bronzeadler gerichtet, mit dem das dunkle Holz verziert war.
