Description

The Drenai King is dead - murdered by a ruthless assassin. Enemy troops swarm into Drenai lands. Their orders are simple - kill every man, woman and child. But there is hope.

Stalked by men who act like beasts and beasts that walk like men, the warrior Waylander must journey into the shadow-haunted lands of the Nadir to find the legendary Armour of Bronze. With this he can turn the tide. But can he be trusted? For he is Waylander the Slayer. The traitor who killed the King...

Listening in Chronological Order

I read the Drenai books as they were coming out before Gemmell's death, so I've been a fan for a long while.
This is the 1st time that I have experienced them in chronological order.
Gemmell wrote some of my favorite fantasy fight scenes. If you like detailed descriptions of fights, then go with his books.
Yes, his books are typically a clear cut good vs. evil story in which the protagonist is usually the toughest of the tough, yet still has doubts. Even with this in mind, I love the character of Waylander the Slayer because, when you meet him, he is the last person who you expect to be a hero. He and everyone else in this book has doubts.
Sean Barrett does a wonderful job of bringing these characters to life. I look forward to listening to his next performance.
For an added treat, stick around for the Afterward in which Gemmell explained how his original attempt at this story was no good, and it took his accidental creation of what became the title character to make it work.

A personal favourite

As with all of David Gemmell's books the characters in Waylander are colourful and fully fleshed out. The overriding plot is essentially straightforwards, but the Author is still able to work in some clever twists and turns. This is one audio book that I will listen too again in the future ... a credit well spent.

I have been waiting for these books!!!!!

I have read Gemmell books for years now over and over again. I even listened to the original CD's back in the day! These are EPIC novels that are so well done and timeless. The Drenai and the Reganti books are my favorite ones. I do plan to buy all my favorite books and have a lot to look forward to. Oh, I have collected most of his books in paper back over the years so there is no worries about buying these if you love EPIC Fighting/swords/monsters/honorable stories!

Finally, another fantasy narrator & series 2 love

Im a epic fantasy and audiobook addict but I can't seem to enjoy female narrators nor most American male readers, try as I might. Fortunately, Tim Gerard Reynolds, Simon Vance and Michael Kramer read a ton of fantasy sagas but Im down to slim pickens. i was delighted to stumble onto both the waylander series and Sean Barrett. i just finished brian lee durfees blackest heart which is amazing but about the goriest book ive every read. it is a nightmare yet i couldn't put it down. what do you read after a book like that??? well waylander was perfect! there is so much depth, intregue and magic- my favorite part of fantasy! i liked that as terrible as the characters were, they also haveb some good in them, often much to their own shagrin. i need that right now with our current state of the union. there was hopelessness but it wasn't angsty and infuriating! i never felt hatred because the good guys that while flawed and in pearel, had faith and that made me expect triumph. don't get me wrong, heroes will die, but none the less i found the story generally uplifting.
the narrator has such a conversational flare with dialogue and his voice is both soothing and authoritative. i loved listening to him! this is a wonderful book and I'm so glad their are many more to come! please forgive my typos and lack of capitalization. writing from my phone.

This is how I’d picture an origin story of The Hound on Game of Thrones

Let’s start with the few flaws...
I felt that there were too many character perspectives, especially people without a significant role in the story. This wasn’t horrible but at times I felt it disrupted the flow. This could’ve been fixed with more character development for such characters, likely making the story longer which wouldn’t have been a bad thing. Also, there were multiple visions/dreams characters would have of other characters that would not come to pass and there were never any indications as to why they weren’t real. Oh well.
Anyway, I loved the main character and the other main characters. I liked the conversations and the world. I would’ve liked to know more about the enemy and their motives but that’s ok. This was entertaining with just enough build-up/story development, dialogue, action, and violence to keep me excited without being excessive in any of those areas.
I recommend this to any fantasy-lover that likes a tough and rugged hero who kicks some you-know-what and handles getting his you-know-what kicked like a boss. Fantasy needs more heroes like Waylander.
