    Haven't read that many stand-alones. They are mostly sci-fi and most fantasy books I read are part of a larger series.

    Legend is actually Book 1 of the Drenai series. It isn't a standalone.

    can not believe that this great book is only third, in my humble opinion having read the others as well, it is far better than those selected to be ahead of it.

    I couldn't disagree more with this review of Legend!
    Gemmell only ever wrote his characters in shades of grey - you have "heroes" that are psychopaths and madmen and are considered heroes because they happen to be killing for the "right" side, and "villains" who are doing bad things only for what they consider to be the greater good.

    Agree with the last comment, this review is the opposite of how I read Gemmell books. Nothing is ever black and white, everything is considered in terms of unforeseen consequences affecting innocent victims.

    Where I do agree is that Gemmell is the best story-teller there ever has been. You'll read better prose, better characterisations, etc, but you'll never read stories that are as well woven together as Gemmell's.

    I think the characters in Legend were incredibly black and white. I was extremely disappointed after reading the Rigante series. The characters are two dimensional and the scale is tiny.

    I had the fortune to meet this man at a book reading....I could have listened to him for hours...his life stories as interesting as his books. If you think his books are back and white then I suggest you forgot to open your eyes...his books contained the real heroes...only a coward is capable of true heroism....only the most lost and vile are capable of becoming the greatest force for good, whether they liked it or not ;). Morningstar is an superb example...read it and fall in love with Gemmell's story telling...No1 in my books!
