Hero in the Shadows by David Gemmell
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I think I'm reading all of these books way out of order, but that's perfectly fine. The story itself is a bit more magical than the other two Waylander books, the overall worldbuilding is as good as any old Conan, and the characters quite memorable. It's a nice intersection between Gemmell's universe and the kinds of modern sword and sorcery adventures that have become quite common today.
My enjoyment level was always pretty solid. It's pretty standard epic fantasy and it satisfies in all the usual ways.
I seriously get a lot of Conan vibes. That isn't a bad thing. :)
