The Swords of Night and Day.
There are few who can compete with Mr Gemmell (sadly departed) when it comes to writing heroic fantasy. I understand those that call him formulaic, Another book in a similar genre but I have enjoyed almost every one. I am sad that I shall never read one of his books again but the truth is; I will. It has been so long since I read of the waylander and the Jerusalem man that I may return to them and find myself virginal once again. A strange thing to say at my advanced age. I miss his tales.
