The start of a gripping new series in the tradition of The Drenai Tales Skilgannon the Damned had vanished from the pages of history.
Following the terrible triumph at Perapolis, the General had taken the legendary Swords of Night and Day and ridden from the lands of Naashan.
No-one knew where he had gone, and the assassins sent by the Witch Queen could find no trace of his passing.
Three years later, as a mob intent on murder gathers outside a distant monastery, they are faced by a single unarmed priest.
In a few terrifying seconds their world is changed for ever, and word spreads across the lands of the East.
Skilgannon is back. Now he must travel across a perilous, demon-haunted realm seeking a mysterious temple, and the ageless goddess who rules it.
With assassins on his trail, and an army of murderous foes ahead, the Damned sets off on a quest to bring the dead to life.
But he does not travel alone. The man beside him is Druss the Legend. In a world torn by war, White Wolf is a page-turning tale of love, betrayal and treachery, which examines the nature of heroism and friendship and the narrow lines that divide good from evil, redemption from damnation.
David A. Gemmell's first novel, Legend, was first published in 1984 and went on to become a classic.
His most recent Drenai and Rigante novels are available as Corgi paperbacks; all are Sunday Times bestsellers.
Widely regarded as the finest writer of heroic fantasy, David Gemmell lived in Sussex until his tragic death in July 2006.
