If you stood at Death’s door, what last story would you tell in the land of the living? For David Gemmell, that story is Legend. Misdiagnosed with cancer, he wrote the novel in a mere two weeks. Years later, a friend read the manuscript, told him to sharpen it up and get it published.
It is a tale of Death. Each character’s development is precisely about how he or she views and then faces the Grim Reaper. And it is glorious.
Legend is a story worth telling at the campfire alongside Helm’s Deep and The Alamo.
The siege of Dros Delnoch, where Legend and Earl stood and fought together, to the last wall.
