Publisher's Summary

Born in the storm that doomed his father, Connavar grows to manhood among the mist-covered mountains of Caer Druagh, where the Rigante tribe dwell in harmony with the land and its gods. But beyond the border, across the water, an evil force is gathering strength, an unstoppable force that will change the world beyond all recognition. Haunted by malevolent spirits and hunted by evil men, Connavar sets out on a spectacular mission to save his people.
From the master of the genre, this is a tale of love and honour, friendship and courage, as Gemmell explores the intriguing worlds of Celtic myth and earth magic.

My favorite series but disappointed in narrator

I feel they should have used a better narrator. This lady made Banuin sound like the count from Sesame Street.

Now that I have gotten through most of the book, the narrator really ruined the accents in this story for me. I always had in my head Scottish and English accents. I don't know why she made the stone people sound like they're from Transylvania

Gemmel is King

David Gemmel is now and has been one of my absolute favorite writers. His grasp of the hero is astounding. This book is a pivotal piece for his writing. Extremely well written. The narration was par excellence. Wonderful job. This is a must have.

Great story. Narration is somewhat discordant.

Have been looking forward to the release of the Rigante series for a while. I've always loved the books and was hoping it would be read by the same narrator as the Drenai series.

Sadly, the narrator is awful and seems to pick the worst accents possible. I don't really understand the choice of a female narrator either, most of the characters are men. It's a fairly male centric storyline. Its all a bit strange.

Dissapointed.
