Review: Winter Warriors by David Gemmell

Winter Warriors (Drenai Tales, #8)Winter Warriors by David Gemmell
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Seriously, if you’re after an introduction to the way Mr Gemmell writes you really couldn’t go past this one: it’s pretty much a textbook example of everything that’s great about his writing with very few of the flaws you find in some of his other books. It has an exciting story, characters that make you feel complex emotions, some continuity porn (but not enough that you feel out of your depth) and he mixes his newer theme of friendship between comrades at arms despite background differences with some of his older ideas like the complexity of choices and how they can affect the larger world. There’s very little timey-wimey-ness in this book too, which is a relief after the last few stories.
