Synopsis

Swords Of Night And Day by David Gemmell

The mighty Skilgannon is back … Called back from the void to fulfil an ancient prophecy, Skilgannon the Damned has returned to help his people in their darkest hour. But this Skilgannon – brought back to life by a mystic ritual – is a man out of time. Marooned in a strange world, he now finds himself isolated from all he once knew and loved.

Or nearly all. A surly giant possessing astounding strength but no memories has also been given the gift of life. To some 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.

Reviews

‘Gemmell is a fireside mythmonger; his characters and plots have the authentic feel of legends handed down through the ages’ SFX

‘The story flows like a torrent; and if the devil has all the best tunes, then the Damned definitely gets the best weapons’ Guardian
