"In your dreams, laddie!"
It's been 10 years since I first picked up Waylander as a 14 year old student. 10 years filled with timeless characters, engaging storylines and lush worlds. Stories infused with philosophical questions and THE iron code of principles to live one's life by.
I wept when Druss made his last stand, I choked back painful sobs when Dakeyras found redemption, and I mourn the passing of my literary hero.
To Mrs Gemmell and family, I too lost my Dad to heart failure in his 50's. I empathise with your sorrow, my heartfelt condolences to you all.
My definition of David Gemmell; Sui Generis.
The crossbowman, an axeman and the wielder of the Swords of Night and Day await you at the gates of Dros Delnoch.
