The Winter Warriors, David Gemmell, Kindle edition 99p on Amazon
Posted 16th Sep 2020
Amazon have a few David Gemmell books reduced to 99p for the Kindle editions. Well worth becoming acquainted with. -

The prophecy was clear: upon the death of three kings, the world will be plunged into chaos, and all the cast-out demons of history will return to bring blood and horror to the world.

Two of the kings are dead. The third, about to be born, is hunted by the Demon Riders of the Krayakin, Lords of the Undead.

All the terrifying forces of evil range against a pregnant queen at bay in a haunted forest. But she is not alone. Three warriors stand with her, the last remnants of the once proud Drenai army. Three old men, ancient heroes, discarded by the king; Nogusta the Swordsman, Kebra the Bowman, and the hulking fighter, Bison.

The fate of empires rests on their fading skills as they journey through a tormented world on a perilous quest to save the unborn king.

Not essential. Some will refer to previous events but most can be read as standalone stories. I've just bought Winer Warriors as a standalone read.
Read every Gemmell novel and got to meet him once. A quiet chap, but great author. A sad loss. Waylander was my hero for a few teenage years
Amazing books and Druss is simply one of thw best fantasy heroes . Though the 30 were also cool . Needs a TV series .
I'm not a fantasy fan, but I'm currently listening to "White Knight Black Swan" by Gemmell, I guess it's Crime fiction, which I'm really enjoying, shame he never did more in that genre..
Great author, read all his books - really nice chap. I met him at one of his "gigs", before he passed away. He had said he'd never allow his books to be turned into film, despite many requests from his daughter. (More about he didn't want Hollywood to change what he had created to fit their plans for making money.) Small factoid, I'm sure he said Skilgannon came from a friend of his names combined "Simon Kilgannon".

He also did Rhyming Rings which you might like, similar genre.

Have said before that DG is still my favourite author, also met him at a few signings etc. But rather than every thread becoming only regret at his passing, let's encourage a few more people to read his books and celebrate them for what they are.
For me, his Drenai works are the best, particularly the earliest ones, but all 3 of these are GREAT fantasy novels.
I think White Wolf is probably the best of the 3, but for 99p they are 100% worth it. 96-98% of amazon reviews are 4/5 stars for context
Thanks Hokers, I got ghat one too. I'll give that a listen also.
Just for the record I'm re-reading White Wolf and it's outstanding, if you like the fantasy genre, I can't recommend this enough. Gemmell is by far the best author I've ever read, and I've read a lot.
