All of Waylander's instincts had screamed at him to spurn the contract from Kaem the cruel, the killer of nations. But he had ignored them. He had made his kill. And even as he went to collect his gold, he knew that he had been betrayed.

And even as he went to collect his gold, he knew that he had been betrayed.Now the Dark Brotherhood and the hounds of chaos were hunting him, even as Kaem's armies waged war on the Drenai lands, intent on killing every man, woman, and child.

Gemmell's simple and effective story-telling paves the way for an epic redemption saga in this novel about a former Drenai officer and family man who's turned into a wandering mercenary and assassin by a tragic event. The story actually opens up on a mature and cynical Waylander, and you're slowly given to understand what led him to become who he is as the novel unfolds. The backdrop of total war between the savage Vagrians laying waste to the land of the reeling Drenai is a perfect setting to contrast the leading characters' often conflicted natures and evolving roles as the onslaught reaches its turning point. Another enjoyable aspect of the story are the ripple effects of Waylander's instinctive actions, and the realistic battle scenes as a skilled and fatalistic killer, who's embraced the doomed destiny his misdeeds have earned him, makes his way against all odds on the arduous path to redemption. Magic is used only as a way to crystallise the forces of good and evil, and perhaps make things a little more interesting for the reticent heroes, but it does not ultimately change the fate of either individuals or nations in this grim and bloody world.

Waylander by David Gemmell is the fourth book in the Drenai saga. The books in order that should be read before reading this one are: Legend, The King Beyond the Gates, and Quest for Lost Heroes. In this book Gemmell deviates a little from the first three books, it is no longer the retired hero coming back to save the day. There seems to be more lot and much more character development within this book. I find it hard to separate Gemmell's books as they are all equally good in my opinion.

The plot of this book is told primarily through the eyes of Waylander, but there are a few times where peripheral characters take over for side quests. There is also a secondary story that takes place with a group trying to hold a keep. That element of the story is classic Gemmell, he writes those scenes well, he has a knack for writing characters dieing. The emotion that goes into that is uncanny, Gemmell's books have very tight plots and nothing happens without a reason. There is no `fluff' to these books. Some may consider the plot simplistic, I don't see that. I think it harkens back to the days when fantasy was fantasy and not this mass produced drivel that seems to be dominating the shelves today.

Unlike the first three Gemmell books that I have read, this novel is packed with character development. In fact I was actually surprised at the amount just from reading the first three novels. That's not to say the first three didn't have character development, it's just in this book Gemmell takes it to a deeper lever and it was something I enjoyed reading. The character of Waylander really made some great strides in this book and I am eagerly awaiting reading In The Realm of the Wolf which is the continuation of this book.

All in all I would recommend this book to anyone who is a fan of fantasy books. This is not a deep all encompassing read, but the story and characters are both solid and it makes for a fun book to read. The beauty of the Drenai books is they can be read as individual books without losing too much of the story. I would recommend reading them in order, but it is not necessary to enjoy the book. Another solid enjoyable book by Gemmell.

Every time I've read this book, I'm continually amazed at how well it's done. Gemmell has a definite formula (or formulas) from which he rarely strays. I didn't know this the first time I read the book, but even now it doesn't detract from what may be some of his best work.

At no point does Gemmell falter in his plain-spoken, yet insightful writing style. He delivers a world both with a complex and detailed history as well as chock full of shades of gray. I'm inspired to write stories like this.

Waylander is one of my favorite characters of all time. Complex, detailed, unexpected, and sort of realistic. He reminds me of Jason Bourne in a fantasy setting. It seems to me that after a lifetime of assassination, that one becomes both a stellar hunter, but also skilled in many areas required to survive.

Gemmell is a good writer and his Drenai series are generally very good compared to a lot of the stuff out there. I reread the series once in a while and I'm thankful that he keeps putting out books in this universe. I recommend this book (and the whole series, in fact) to all who call themselves fantasy fans.

David Gemmell was one of the best storytellers ever. All his books are fast paced, easy to read, very suspenseful and they leave you with a strong desire to read more of his books and adventures. He paints his characters and worlds full of color and makes you feel part of his stories. I have reread all his books many times and they never fail to thrill me and make me want to read them yet again.

What can I say about this author, he is one of the fantasy greats, deep meanings sprinkled with heroic, flawed and captivating characters. If you are into fantasy and haven't read his books, then you should.

It's classic of good versus evil in a fantasy relam. All characters are flawed, the evil become good, good become a little evil and will good triumph in the face os overwhelming odds? But who is really good and who is really evil. A classic.

Another outstanding entry in the realm of swords and sorcery by Mr. Gemmell. Logical and interesting plot. Strong character development. Solid writing. All hallmarks of his writing and on evidence once more. Waylander is developed as another admirable yet flawed character. Without doubt the best aspect of the book is the unwavering adherence to character development. Little regard is given to trying to put our cultural values into the book so murder, rape, and pillage are par for the course, as would be expected in a medieval framework of knights and sorcerers.
It follows well in the Drenai saga with character types generally as we would expect them. Even with that, it developed well as the story unfolds and keeps you interested right to the end.
