Gemmell books are not often reduced to this level, even on Kindle. Although part of a highly addictive series this can be read as a stand alone book.

Even in death, Skilgannon the Damned's name lives on. Now, as an ancient evil threatens to flood the Drenai heartlands in a tide of blood, he returns...

A thousand years after they fell in battle, two heroes - Druss and Skilgannon - are revered throughout the war-torn lands of the Dernai, where men and women live in abject fear of the dark sorceress known as the Eternal...

But what if the soul of one such hero could be called back from the void, his bones housed again in flesh? An ancient prophecy foretold that Skilgannon would return in his people's darkest hour. To most, this was a foolish hope. But not so to Landis Kan. Having found Skilgannon's ancient tomb, he gathers up the bones and peforms the mystic ritual.

But the reborn hero is an enigma: a young man whose warrior skills are blunted and whose memories are fragmented. This Skilgannon is a man out of time, Marooned in a world as strange to him as a dream, remote from all he knew and loved. Or nearly all. Before bringing back Skilgannon, Landis Kan had experimented upon other bone fragments found in the hero's tomb. That ritual resulted in a surly giant who possessed astounding strength but no memories. To Kan, he is a dangerous failure. To Skilgannon, this giant represents their last hope.

As ageless evil threatens to drown the Drenai lands in blood, two legendary heroes will once again lead the way to freedom.

Great book and prequal , White Wolf is also great (probably better) but this is sort of stand alone as White Wolf is set hundreds of years earlier but still links in to this book. Any book by Mr Gemmell is worth reading in my opinion so why not try this for 99p?
Looks like a few of his books are reduced at the moment.
Great Author, sadly missed.
So would this be recommended for a complete novice? Is it part of a series, or a standalone?
I'm looking to get back into reading and I've seen this author mentioned several times, but clueless otherwise.
Thanks in advance!

It's a two book set with White Wolf but the characters in it, Skilgannon and Druss are also in other books. It's a whole world where all the Drenai tales are set and the characters overlap at times. Have a look at the book timeline - en.m.wikipedia.org/wik…ies

My first book of Mr Gemmells was Legend and since that I've read about 20 others of his, and loved all of them.
