Must be the third book of waylander.
'Hero in the shadows':p

The only gemmel book I ever read. It wasn't bad, but well I'm a busy person and hardly ever finish series.

I am a big fan of "Lion of Macedon" and "Dark Prince". I loved the twists he took with they historic figures and events. The end is one of his best.

Legend and the Rigante series ar both great but the best in my opinion would have to be White Wolf or the Swords of Night and Day.

The Rigante Tales were really great. I might get to re-read after I have finished my current book...

Wolf in Shadow is a must, Allanon. I think it was my favourite of the Gemmell books. I liked a lot of them, but that one was somehow different from the rest. Given that Gemmell writes to a formula, that is saying something.

personally i dont find that the rigante novels were all that brilliant compared to some of his other books, i really liked the skilgannon books though as they (in my opinion) had better story lines.
the twin story would also be good, it could clean up areas of uncertainty for me.
